more silly questions  
So far, what has been your favorite opening sequence? Why?


The newest sequence is just ... wow! I love the scene with the Kid and Envy and their hair blowing back ... teh s3x, no doubt. Not to mention that the angsty juxtaposition between chibi-Ed and chibi-Al versus their current incarnations gets me every time.

*sniff*

Do share, please!

Second sequence has been my favorite because...I don't know ; I think it's the balanced focusing on characters in the military instead of just setting aside a 1-2 second clip of them. though yes, the 3rd opening's juxtapositioning of past and present is very sweet. I saw the 3rd rigth after #25 before knowing what UNDO's lyrics were so I was more "wtf" than anything else with the rest of the chorography. I remember being pissed that Ed was going "=O~~~~~~" half the the time; haha.

I also liked the second one best. First off, I adore L'arc en ciel and thus I also adored the song.
Then, the opening itself. I really liked the way the characters where put into action. The pimp-y Roy-snipping, the hilarious Hughes-pseudo-checker-gesture ... It was just yummy.
I don't really like the 3rd one because of the song. It was just ... kinda boring. I think rock-y songs like "Ready, steady GO" fit the anime much better.

Meep.

Gotta go with the second as well. "Ready Steady Go" is a kickass song, and the sequence was kickass along with it. I loved the first opening song, but I didn't like the actual sequence very much for it. The third opening I'm having trouble warming up to. I don't really like it much, but seeing as it'll be around for 13 eps, I'll probably get used to it.

Incidentally, my favorite ending is a tie between the first two. "Kesenai Tsumi" is my favorite FMA song, though.

You're making me CHOOSE?!

Hm. I DO love that scene in the third with Creepy Kid (his Tay-official name ><;) and Envy. So, so cool. Plus, uber-adorable Ed and Al scenes, like the one with Al piggybacking a sleeping Ed *snuggles*

I like the first one for its colours, and I love the song. The scene with all the military characters marching to the beat of the song never fails to make me laugh. Plus, it was my first introduction to the series, and will always make me think of watching it at anime screenings, and defending my love of fifteen-year-old bishonen to the guys ><;

But. But. I LOVE 'Ready, Steady, GO!' A scary amount. And I love the Armstrong, Riza, Hughes, Roy bit. Mostly Hughes and pimp!Roy, but yeah. I love the bit at the beginning where Ed 'awakens' (*sings* Let's get started, ready, steady, go! ^^) I love the pain of those flash scenes to Ed grimacing with his hands over his ears. I love Al in the sunlight with the bird on his arm. I love Ed's cheesy grin at the end.

Argh! You see how difficult a question this is now?

^^;

I /loved/ the second one, because I love that scene with the military characters doing their thing XD and the song was great +__+

I actually like the song for the third one, but it's not as fun and colorful as the second one. So My favorite opening sequence'd have to be the second one <3

(I agree about the military characters marching in the first one XDD!!)

Well, time for me to break the mold. The third opening is my favorite, notably because of Greed. Ah, yes--Greed. I just love how they make Greed MOVE in the opening. :P And the song, yeah. I love it.

The second OP will always be close to my heart. UNDO is a nice song, but not nice enough to make not skip over the opening credits. I hated Melissa, and I still hate it; I can't bring myself to take a good look at the opening itself because of the song that goes with it. Ready Steady Go.... when viewing new eps, 8 times out of 10 I actually looked through the opening credits.

Out of endings, I like the first one's visuals most (*squishes and molests angsty!ED), though the song doesn't quite rock my socks (but it's just good enough to be on my playlist). Furthermore, I loved, loved, LOVED the special ending credits used in ep 7, with Nina & Alexander replacing the fight scenes.

*puts on Ready Steady Go, jams* ^____^

Another thing that I like about this opening is the shere sexiness of Ed when he cuts that nasteh creature in half and gets all splattered with blood. (sorry if i sound creapy o-o)

Creepy Ed-lovers unite!

That's my second favorite part of the sequence, too! When Ed gets that blood on his cheek, I just go *slurrrrrrrrrrrrrrp* ... Ed-o-licious!

Moofy is sex, and he's so LITTLE. Just imagine him when he's older >>;

Hahahahahahahaha!

Moofy?

That's excellent!

I got tired of calling him the creepy yet hot little boy. So, it's Moofy.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the second opening? I don't know, it just didn't click with me. I find myself skipping past it (please don't hate me for this ;_;).

I prefer the third one to all the others. It's more fun to sing (or try to sing). And I adore the scene with chibi Ed, Al, and Winry running in the beginning. And the fighting.

For endings, it's Kesenai Tsumi. That ending with Ed the little angst bunny all smiling...I love it T_T

You're not the only one! If I had to rank the OS's so far, I'd put the second one as my least favorite. I don't know ... maybe it was too angsty? The show is angsty enough without having it hammered into your brain with the opener. But that is just a personal opinion.

Yep, it's so adorable!

*squees at chibi Winry and chibi Ed and chibi Al*

Woohoo, I'm glad I'm not the only one who ranks the second opening as their least favorite!
