"And they all lived happily ever after. Ha ha, I'm just effing with you. Everybody dies."  
I think series like Full Metal Alchemist should have warning labels, have them up before episodes with huge angst sessions,so that way you can make sure you're watching the episode in a brightly lit room away from any windows or sharp objects.

Okay guys. I know most of you already know this,but in case you're newbies like me, I'll cut this.


I've prided myself on being totally oblivious to this series' spoilers, I've been told it makes it much more enjoyable..and more painful. True dat. True dat. I cried when Nina died..but by comparison, if you wanna say I cried when she died, I BAWLED when Hughes died. I was like..sobbing for the entire last half of the episode without stop. OH MY GOD ;x; MY FAVORITE CHARACTER! I looked forward to Saturdays because I knew FMA was on,and with FMA came crazy angst sessions..and then Hughes popping up at random moments and rambling about his daughter and how wonderfully adorable she is. That was what I looked forward too. And now he's gone! *Wibbles* And what makes it worse,oh my gosh Elicia!! I hate little children at funerals x___x so much. It tears me up,it does.

To make a long story short, I was depressed beyond words for like..30 minutes after it was over,and I probably depressed anyone who IMed me during that 30 minute period as well. XD;; I was just wondering if I'm overly emotional or if anyone else shared the reaction? XD;


I just needed to vent a bit. I'm done. Sorry if this is a tad off topic [?]

[edit]
Oh yeah. for the record, I have a serious case of an angst-hangover from the OD of it last night. XD

Actually it was really weird.. I bawled when Nina died, but I only cried a bit when I first saw ep. 25 subbed. But I did get really depressed for a while afterwards, I'm not sure why. (it could have been billypilgrim's AMV to Barenaked Ladies' "Tonight is the night I fell asleep at the wheel."...)

Then last night, I got home from being with my friends pretty late, so I had missed the first showing. Someone linked to that Bon Jovi "It's My Life" AMV, and that made me cry Roy-style, with just one tear.

Then I decided to watch the second showing of ep. 25 at 2:30, and that had me crying harder than the first time. :x I'm not sure why.

So yes, I definitely share in your pain of overly-emotional-reactions-during-anime. I think I'm just a wuss and cry really easily. ;___; *patpat*

I watched the first showing..then when the second one came around I actually had to pry myself away and turn it off, because I knew I was just gonna start crying all over again. ;__;


Omg? AMVS? I've obviously gone retarded and missed the links to them. Share pleasee ;~;? *grabby hands*

Hughes death really was a quiet-in-shock kinda thing. No fanfare, no buildup, like Nina's. It. Just. Happened.

I had to go watch ep. 13 and 5 again. And the phone convos between him and Mustang.

Yeah. I think thats part of what makes them so dramatic though. Not milking it, just moving on without a second glance. Like it was no big deal. It wasn't till it cut to the scene of the funeral I forced myself to believe he actually died x_x

I won't even bother to deny that I'm an extremely pathetic and wibbly watcher. I barely ever actually bawl, but I'm big on the silent tears thing. I don't think I've watched the actual ending of a series without crying (except for maybe Scrapped Princess, but that was because it was 8 in the morning and I had been marathoning all night :x), and there have been zillions of moments throughout my various favorites. (Fruits Basket is possibly the most evil show ever when it comes to getting me in tears. Yargh.)

So all hail the wibbly people! Angst power! *pose*

that icon..i love that icon so much O___O!

I've yet to finish Furuba, but I've been told its pretty angst-tastic.

*POSE* YEAH! WE MAY HAVE WEAK HEARTS AND NEVER-DRY EYES, BUT WE'VE GOT STRONG BONDS! XD THE WIBBLY WATCHERS ASSOSIATION,UNITE!

>.< I agree with what a lot of other people said. I just NEVER would have expected Hughes to die, so it was a huge blow to me. I couldn't believe it, I mean...I thought for sure he was going to come back...I just kind of stared in shock at the screen with my mouth open like..."Okay...you can come out now...HEY YOU CAN COME OUT NOW" & when the funeral scene came along I was balling so loud the neighbors could probably hear. But hey...if it makes you feel better...(I made my brother a FMA fan) & when he watched it he was just as bad almost. Except he was kind of like >.< 'Won't cry in front of the sister...can't...not possible...oh crap I can't help it!'
she makes mountains out of molehillsjigglygrlcarrie on May 1st, 2005 04:25 pm (UTC)
I DID THAT TOO ..I was all "He's gonna come back..the scenes gonna change and he's gonna be standing int he office..OH MY GOD MAKE HIM PLEASE BE IN THE OFFICE" ;x;

It's actually a lot worse in the manga,

SPOILERS





A good couple chapters later, when Winry finds out about it after coming back from Rush Valley(I think) and she goes to visit the Hughes' house and Elyssia opens the door and says "papa!". Then there are a couple panels showing her smile fade. Ouch, that hurt me but thats not all. When Winry is back at the hotel Edo tells her to go grab a bite but she shows him a pie that she baked with Gracia's help and tells him to eat it. While he's eating it she's sitting there and cries as she says "I wanted Hughes-san to eat it one day".


FMA really loves to torture us :(
Pyro: ed angrypyrosakura on May 1st, 2005 01:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah, when i first saw episode 25 on my computer, I cried really hard for about an hour. That was probably one of the saddest character deaths I've ever seen. Then again I get really emotional when my characters die. I cried for awhile when Chrono died in Chrono Trigger too... and he was made of pixels.

But yeah, I share your pain on that one, I was sad for a very long while afterwards. Poor Elysia-chan...

It was probably as sad as episode 24 or Trigun... *bawls*
Plain Rebecca Jane: fma ninaannaonthemoon on May 1st, 2005 02:45 pm (UTC)
I'm a crier. I cry at the dumbest things possible, and when I started watching FMA, my friend swwinchester warned me that this show would have me in tears constantly. He even madea point of watching the one where Nina dies with me, because he knew how attached I had gotten to her.

Hughes dying...wow. But it didn't hit me and make me cry when he died..no, what got me going was Elysia crying at his funeral...

...because I did the exact same thing when my dad died in 1992. (I was 13, but still. ouch. it hurts)

*cries with everyone else and breaks out the tissues*
Zalia Chimerazalia on May 1st, 2005 03:16 pm (UTC)
I had that episode spoiled for me by a friend ^^; He blurted it out over lunch one day when we were shopping. And then I watched the episode and I still cried!

Still get teary whenever I watch the ep too.

What actually gets me crying is Roy at the funeral. Every single time, Roy's lines about human transmutation and the rain make me want to bawl!
musecadutomusecaduto on May 1st, 2005 04:26 pm (UTC)
I was all right until Elicia started begging her mother to stop them from burying him because he had lots of work to do. I hate children at funerals. They always make me cry.

I figured something was going to happen to a main character, though. The whole Law of Equivalent Exchange kind of foreshadows the entire series. But it happened so suddenly...

I did like how there was no ending song or previews. I thought it was rather fitting.
she makes mountains out of molehillsjigglygrlcarrie on May 1st, 2005 04:55 pm (UTC)
Yeah..the Elicia thing just tore me up. I hate children at funeral too, they're so oblivious it's ..ohmigosh.

*nod* Suddenly is right ...it was pretty quick. Shock value, BAM.

I liked that too, it woulda degraded the episode if it had had them.
Twiggygoodbye__kitty on May 1st, 2005 07:25 pm (UTC)
this series does bring out the angst in you. So depressing. T-T Also: donnie darko is the best to listen to at a time like this. fits the mood well.
Mella-Chanjademustang on May 2nd, 2005 07:26 am (UTC)
the tears the tears!
Good gods I cried like a baby during that episode. I just couldnt bring myself to beleve he was gone. He was just always there, comic relief, saving everyones life then bam...hes dead. I cried the minute i saw hughes fall because I knew he was gone. I know Im such a wimp, but I cried and cried for the rest of the episode and the part with Elicia just made me cry harder. I was miserable for about 4 hours afterwards. Hell, my BOYFRIEND cried!!!! (and he never cries)

But i do have to say the episode was done beautifully. more ralistic than most deaths. because life does go on afterwards... the world doesnt stop because someone died, and in reality, magic doesnt bring people back. It mirrored reality and thats what made it do touching and sad.

Sorry Im rambling. The angst is getting to me!
