I'm sorry if this sounds like a weird question, I'm working on a project for school, and I was wondering if anyone knew how to cite FMA (the anime) in MLA format. Ditto the music. ^^;

As incentive, I give cookies, and a little thing that I did while in class one day.

When I did my history paper on anime and how it portrays certain parts of Japan's history, this is how I cited the series I used:

Barefoot Gen. Directed by Mori Masaki. Original story by Nakazawa Keiji. Image Entertainment, 1999

Grave of the Fireflies. Directed by Isao Takahata. Wea Corp, 2002.

Rurouni Kenshin. Directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. Original story by Nobuhiro Watsuki. Media Blasters, 2000

I THINK I used MLA, I can't remember. You can get most of the info from Amazon.

Good luck with your paper!

go here and input the info - and it creates MLA citations for you! Should be pretty up-to-date, as well, considering I got the site from my English teacher :)

haha, i just used that site on my english project.
the whole thing is up to date, and its a real time saver.

I love it :) I don't have to try and remember all the MLA formats anymore - which is a good thing, as my memory is horrid ^^

oh i know, same here.
those things about killed me each project. all the periods and commas, i could always remember where to put the names and titles, but never the punctuation.
whoever made that site is just pure geneis.

I always ended up putting too much info in, because I would get all mixed up between books/films/types of books/etc. I figured if I put everything in, then I couldn't go wrong....

The site is heaven, though :) especially for those of us with many research papers to do :)

Better too much, than too little.

Yea, no question there.

As far as I know, the last time I used an actual anime for a source I cited it as if it was a normal source for MLA. In other words, if it's a anime movie you're citing use the Film MLA format. If it's a anime series, use the TV MLA format.

Title. Director, Producer, and/or Writer. Distributor, Year.

[u]Fullmetal Alchemist: Conquerer of Shambala[/u]. Dir. Seiji Mizushima. BONES/Square Enix, 2005.

"Title of Episode or Segment." Title of Program or Series. Credit (Performer, writer,
etc). Name of Network. Call Letters (if any), City of Local Station (if any).
Broadcast Date.

Hope that helps! ^_^ Good luck with your assignment
