Bah Humbug

(no subject)

For the sake of research I am conducting, I have a quick question.
From the perspectives of everyday anime fans, how many of the posters here feel like manga and/or anime is not a 'true art' genre?
Answers would be immensely helpful and greatly appreciated. Also, you don't have to make the answers long (like explain why...) or anything, though if you feel like sharing it would certainly help.
PS. please consider while responding, that being biased is easy in a manga-based community... Facts and reasons will definetly help convince people much better than "YEAH, its a true art form, because I say so!"
If you can identify why FMA in particular is a good manga/anime, that would also be awesome. Feel free to use examples such as characters (Edward, Alphonse, or even the Homunculi), character motivations and storylines/plot... Those would definetely be of help.

Another AMV

Song: 10 Years - Wasteland

This is my second Fullmetal Alchemist AMV. This time, I decided to tell the story of Mustang and Hughes' friendship, and what Hughes eventually had to sacrifice in order to help his friend. It's a slow-paced video, and that's how I intended it to be. Quite a departure from my first one. There are major spoilers if you haven't seen the series up to episode 25, so be warned. Hope you enjoy.

Balance of Power ~ Chapter Fifteen (Interlude)

*Title: Chapter Fifteen: "Brothers Connect" (Interlude)
*Author: c_b_s aka: "Crackbunny Syndrome"; a group of three writers (and one artist) all infected by the same plotbunny.
Genre: Humor, drama, angst, conspiracy, action, resurrection of the dead... probably just about everything. Somewhere in all that is a real plot.
*Rating: R (mostly for language and violence, blame Ed)
*Spoilers: Post Series, Post Movie
Warnings: For external use only. Not to be taken internally, nor seriously. Side-effects could include muscle aches, headaches, crossed eyes, broken brains, violent tendencies toward certain characters, boggling, and permanent 'WTF' looks.
Other notes: Time travel. Conspiracy theories. Leylines. Pop culture crack and bad movie references. Hackers, ghost hunters and detectives, oh my! When crossing the gate, be sure to look both ways...
*Level of critique sought: Detailed. No flames, but honest critique is encouraged. We can take it!

Teaser: And since when do you drink MILK??? I should go look for flying pigs...

I'm on a manhunt for all things DAEN. O.o

Recently there was an auction for a FMA doujinshi on EBay, written by the DAEN circle, called Iro Mane, and dammit, I wanted it. ;_; (Pitful me).

Does anybody know of a store where DAEN sells, or hell, if someone'd be willing to sell me (Specifically Iro Mane) theirs, pleasepleaseplease help me ... ::bows::

Amber Haze (Fullmetal Alchemist, Roy/Ed, #30-Kiss)

Title: Amber Haze
Author: hotarukat
Pairing: Roy Mustang and Edward Elric
Disclaimer: I don't own FMA. If I did the anime would end very differently.
Notes: Ed thinks he will do a quick favor for Hawkeye on the anniversary of Hughes’s death, but things with the Colonel inevitably get more complicated when alcohol is involved. This story grew out of a fanart from a while ago. And, hopefully the link to the story will work this time...

You're too young to be drinking, Fullmetal.

don't look


Okay, I've got a fanfic I've been working on...four chapters so far. It's post series, post movie...kind just ties in at the near very end of the movie, actually. Oh, and I guess you can rate it PG...but I have it as PG13 to be safe.

And here's another...ahem...but it's crack, I guess you can say...rated PG13 for innuendo...but the implication is suppose to show how perverted YOU can be, not moi.

Chibi OVA Parody

I'm thinking of recording a parody of the Chibi OVA, but I have no idea if I should voice all of the characters myself, or let a few other people have roles too. I highly doubt I can make different voices for everyone, so I think I'll stick to the latter. xD;; Um, if you have a mic and want to be in it, you can be any character you want. (Though just be sure to leave a character or two for me, okay?) If we have more then one person who wants to do a character, we'll have auditions to see which person can voice the character the best.

X-posted to envy_lightbulb.

Edit: I tried doing Roy's voice. Yes, I know that I do indeed suck, espcially at doing a Roy voice.

Edit II:
Roles Taken
Envy -- wiccat
Ed -- curucar

Questions on FMA

[EDIT] Thanks to everyone who answered the questions, definitly help me understand what happened much better. Once again, thanks for answering my questions!

These questions I'm going to ask will have spoilers, so for those who haven't watched the anime completely, it's best not to look at them.

The reason why I'm asking these questions is because I've seen the show, but there haven't been episodes that I've missed here and there, so while I get the gist of the ending, there were some questions that I had.

If anyone can help me answer the questions, it'd be very helpful!

“Since when did you want to know about SEX!?”

Thanks for reading :)

(Like a sabre through skin, the exclamation cut the silence in twain. Slowly, Ed turned to address the speaker, lowering his hand and involuntarily stilling his breath as he did so)

FMA movie ~ (Conqueror of Shamballa) ~ My conclusion

So after I´ve finished watching the series I could not stand it NOT to watch the movie, too. I just was TOO curious :/ ......
Because it´s absolutely worth TALKING about, I thought I should write down my impressions again, so that we can discuss a little bit.
I have a very strong necessity to talk this over~ ... more than after the end of the anime series O__O;;

If you haven´t watched the MOVIE yet, PLEASE don´t read any further unless you WANT to know what´s happening there !!!

(Naze ka na ? READ ALL ABOUT IT !)

So, all of you who have watched the movie already, TELL me your thoughts and impressions please. I want to discuss this, perhaps it gets me liking the movie more :/ ....
Again I have to apologize for my horrible English x_X

Jaa, nevertheless I sooooooooo need to make a LOT of screenshots and icons *___*

Elric kyoudai forever ♥~ 何時も 二人 で

An idea.

Alright, everyone's heard/seen/smelled fic contests before. So here's a new idea I've been sitting on. Or if not new, then I'm just a dolt and haven't seen it around before.

Any input would be highly appreciated, as well as volunteers for possible future participation. =)

Thank you.
Royai, duh.

[fanart] Bradley and His Tea

Uh-huh, since I'm too lazy to finish my Roy vector, I did a Bradley one~! O_O ZOMG, yeah, and now I wonder what kind of tea this dude drinks, and why is he always drinking tea... o_o, errr yeah, I always do wonder about the weirdest things... apologies. ^_^

(off to my dA, and gaze at Bradley drinking tea~!) (Uh-huh, if you have time, you can also join the Amestris fanlisting)

eeep, and please feel free to friend pl0tfarm if you would like to see more vectors (god knows that's all I can do...) and fanfictions who are all on hiatus, sad. *sighs* Pathetic plugging ><

FMA Openings / Endings ?!


I´m searching for the openings and endings of FMA. As video files, not as mp3s AND in GOOD quality !!!!

I would cut them out by myself but unfortunately I have NO idea how to handle .mkv or .ogm files. Virtual Dub doesn´t work here :( ....

So it would be great if someone could help me out ^^;;;
Thanks in advance ~♥
