All the way back to the beginning! Episode 00  
These last 3 OVAs that's created all this happy squee has brought an end to it all (Dawww *group hug*)

So, I'm going to rewind back to September of 2003 and post some screen caps from a half hour FMA TV series promo special that aired just before everything started. I don't know what to call it other than Episode 00 (well, "Kenja no Ishi wo Motomete") but I thought some people might get a kick out of some screen caps.

I wanted to share the video tonight, but it's crawling along at a wonderful 5k/sec upload pace, so I'll share it tomorrow if it EVER finishes u.u; - tonight I'll share screen caps.

Because mad alchemy scientists are love.

This is our host for the next half hour, the opitomy of style and all wise chemist.

And this is his alter-ego, who doesn't get as much screen time as his crazy other half, but enjoys polishing that crystal ball in his spare time.

Romi Paku introducing Edward Elric!

Let's take a look behind the scenes at some inner workings

More studio fun!

Nana Kitade talking about her single.

And they somehow managed to keep a.... ummm... mostly straight face during the interview.

It's the early chart on who or what is related to whom!

Rie Kugimiya introducing Alphonse Elric.

It's the October, 2003 chart on what to expect for FMA fun!

Ed on a much bigger screen!

Squeenix's FMA game at the Tokyo Gameshow (I BELIEVE that's what this was from *can't recall off hand*)

The Squeenix girl's (who're holding FMA merchandise) helping spread the wealth of knowledge regarding that statue behind them.

What!? Our suave host was actually a gamer in disguse! He's having way too much fun!

It's our core voice acting girls!

Chibi'ttsuu na yo.

And what half hour of FMA plug is complete without one last word from our favourite mad scientist, reminding us that, on October 4th, FMA premiers!

... The hair *snickers*

Hope you enjoy :D

...I'm sorry, I saw Ed on that giant TV and my first thought was "heh, now appearing 100x normal size!"

He's going to smother me in my sleep, I know it. >.> *paranoid*

Oh wow this brings back memories for me when I first started watching FMA. @_@

I downloaded this "episode 00" and even though it was a RAW it was still a blast to watch. XD
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on March 30th, 2006 06:40 am (UTC)
lol yeah, the episode is so full of "series beginnings" and so much nostalgia. A good chunk of it I couldn't understand either because it was raw, but you didn't need to know what was being said, it was fun enough without subtitles XD;

I'd have a lot of love for the person who could give me translations someday

DWAH! *keeled ded*

Damn, GANGAN Monthly is thick. o.O;

*saw Hagaren at Otafest 05. Had a blast*

Geez, I saw icons and icons and people's message board sigs had them...yet I was as clueless as to what 'fansubs' were and where to get them. (Plus my clunker---er---WinME was acting up so...) HOWEVER, I was read the manga beforehand and when Otafest 05 rolled around I had read up to Volume 4 and was traumatized TT_TT;.

Then I began reading Black Cat as I was watching episodes lent to me and slowly stopped reading BC to download episodes and catch up 14 episodes. Whee 8D;

Ah goodtimes...

Seiji Mizushima (if that's him next to Nana Kitade) looks like he's dying from keeping his laughter in. xDD;

*_* they are thick... I own a couple... they take up WAY too much space <3

XDD Memories and nostalgia are fun *nod* I had FMA beaten over my head through LJ until I relented and fell into the abyss.

Yes XD that's Seiji Mizushima, the poor guy!

...oh wow. This just made me realize... The FMA animation series is over; if BONES doesn't contribute anymore to it.
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on March 30th, 2006 02:16 pm (UTC)
;_; that's such a depressing thought...

Little alchemist, big television . . .

Thanks for sharing! I can just imagine what the first reactions of the Japanese viewers were. "WTF? The show's about a mad scientist with a white palm tree on his head?"
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on March 30th, 2006 02:23 pm (UTC)
LOL, they'd have either be facinated or frightened off by it XD; judging by the end result, I'll go with the former.

Oh my god, the mad professor look and his dorky host remind me of the crappy/budget cartoon programming that my TV station would put on at 5 am, because it was too early for actual shows. Except this one turned out to be good. XD

Way Back When, eh? O_O
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on March 30th, 2006 02:24 pm (UTC)
LOL XD it's always hilarious when crack turns out to be good stuff.

Yeah, way back when *nostalgia*
