Silly Misconceptions you had when you started watching  
I just thought, Hmmm, good discussion idea:

Not sure if you guys have done this before or not...

But share your misconceptions (or things you didn't at first) when you first started watching the anime.

I'll name some of mine that are quite absurd, and shouldn't be spoilerific cuz after a while of watching you get the hang of the show ^^

1) I thought Scar, who showed up in the opener before he made his anime debut, was possibly Ed and Al's daddy... OMG the crack that you could make from this misconception...

2) I was quite confused for a while, but I thought that Envy was a girl... (but, we know he's really a guy ^^)

3) I thought Alphonse was a State Alchemist too...

Come on! Admit that you thought some wrong things!!

well i read a FMA yaoi fic before i saw the entire sries and i thought Roy was the furer XD I was just sitting there like "who would WRITE something like this?" *two days later* "OH! oh... *headdesk*"
kaijoudarkbliss on April 13th, 2005 11:54 pm (UTC)
well at that point in time i reffered to the furer as "that dude with the funky black moustache"

For sometime, I thought the whole series of episodes that were really a very long flash back were actully what happened after the incident in Lior (or whatever the name is... too tired... -_-;).

And then someone explained that they were a flash back and I felt very stupid...

Well I...Thought Al was a robot ^^; . And because of that, I thought FMA was a Mecha anime and Al was accualy Ed's pet robot or something O_O. Then there was the fact I thought Envy was a girl too...Then the misscoseption after starting to wach the anime I thought Bradly was their father and Riza was Izumi! I quickly found out that wasn't the case though after seeing more then 3 episodes >_< .

If you think these were funny...you'll love the Misconceptions of Wolf's rain! But...that's for another community ;) .

1. I didn't think I would like this show at first. Now I'm hooked.
2. I thought we would see that cute guy from the opening credits take a bigger part in the series before now. (I only was planning on watching until I found out what his name is. [Envy].)

I had thought Scar might have been Ed and Al's dad too. Makes me glad I'm not the only person who thought that. What other misconceptions did I have....I think that might be it.

With the first opening (refering to "Melissa", not "Ready Steady Go"), when I saw Scar I thought he was the main bad guy/evil villian.

>.>; XD;;

I actually thought Ed was a girl for the first minute or so of episode 1. I mean, he has a BRAID and I haven't seen any guys with braided hair. For a while I also thought Al's armor kept his soul from escaping upwards, like a container with a lid. So whenever his helmet fell off (which seemed to be quite often - how unreliable), I'd freak out and wonder why Ed wasn't rushing to put it back on before Al was lost forever. Oh gawd. How sad.

Actually, I started reading the manga from Toriyama's world, and I saw the covers....

Me: Oh, so is the black haired dude (Roy) on the third cover the older brother? And that robot (Al), Their butler????

*laughs at your icon* Oooh, don't show the dubbies that XD

but ROTFL man, those are some *really* far-off misconceptions XD

I didn't catch what the fuck was going on in the first episode and thought Al actually WAS the armor.

If you're referring to Hughes... my brain is now filled with crack.

If you're not, it is anyways because 'guy with specs' = Hughes in my mind. XD

Until the 5-6 last eps, I was abso-blooming-lutely convinced that Hohenheim was the main villain. But I followed the manga alongside the anime, so...

The day I got hooked to FMA, I binge downloaded all the manga chapters that Toriyama's World had up at the time. Then I went "Hey, there's an anime too, right?", found a download place, DLed and watched the first ep, then hopped straight to ep 6, thinking it would include Ed's nightmare à la chapter 6. Man, I was so disappointed. And confused as fuck. ("Wh-why is Ed taking the State Alchemist test? Wasn't he one already? O__o")

First off, I never thought I would like the show, and looky there! It became my favorite XD

From random pictures I'd seen floating around the interweb, I thought Al was Ed's friend/robot thing... and they traveled around the world beating up other robot things in competitions and stuff... My brain tends to plan out whole stories for things after just seeing one picture U.U;;

I saw a fan art of Envy after I'd only downloaded the first couple episodes, and thought he was a fan-made character (I'm so ashamed!!)

Thankfully curiosity got the best of me, forcing me to download everything, otherwise all these crackish thoughts would still be in my head- probably having multiplied infinitely over the past year >.>;; Think of the horror!!
Soupy: smirklady_agrias on April 14th, 2005 03:45 am (UTC)
Before I knew anything about FMA except for the title, I thought "ZOMFG, THAT is going to SUCK." And, uh, yeah. I now want to hurt meself for thinking such things. :D

And I accidentally called transmutation circles "transmutilation" circles a few times. ^_^;;
Sapphire: Morgifsapphire_hime on April 14th, 2005 03:47 am (UTC)
I thought Scar was Villian of the Week, and that he'd die in a couple of episodes >.>

I remember reading the concept for the story in Newtype, and being really, really offended that Ed, who clearly was the inciting cause of all this, got away easily with just a metal arm and leg, whereas his brother lost his whole body. I remember grumbling about how I didn't think they'd treat that fact with the proper angst it deserved.

.... HA HA HA HA. How wrong I was.
