OK Yeah.  
Dear FMA Comm,

As we have all been reminded several times today, our beloved series was liscenced by FUNimation. While I'm not happy, I've come to accept it, like the majority of the comm. Sonchou will still be releasing the subs via IRC and bittorrent, I believe. You can all rest easy, IT IS GOING TO BE OKAY.

However, I have to say, it gets annoying when a million different people post wailing about how their lives are over and they cannot function without subbed FMA, and how bad a job they'll do, all in individual entries on the journal. It's spamming people's friends pages, so please, be considerate when you decide you need to post about your individual angst and woe. If you've got to do it at all, reply to somebody else's post, or write it in your own journal.

Similarly, about four or five different "SHUT UUUP" posts have surfaced, and I have to tell you guys that gets annoying fast, too. I really hate it when the fandom gets divided like this; we are fans of the same series, please, let's all find comfort in that at least, and stop squabbling. Okay?

If anybody needs a place to rant and rave about the subbing, or about how people are still ranting and raving about the subbing, PLEASE DO SO HERE. It will take the flood off people's friends pages.

Thank you. Happy posting.

Yeah, I kind of contradicted myself but there were things that I think needed to be said. It wasn't being approached practically enough, I found. Besides, now it's just my inbox that'll bear the brunt of it. That is, if people listen this time. x_x;

You might want to turn off your e-mail notification. :) Also, I love your original post icon. So cute! Is it Maloki? I've only seen three or so episodes, so I'm not certain.
brosef stalin, leader of the broletariat.: yo yo yo!arisato on May 11th, 2004 08:00 pm (UTC)
Haha, that would be a very good idea, it's too bad I'm waiting for a comment my beta is supposed to be leaving in my journal tonight. Bah, I'll just check it religiously. ;)

It is, actually! Manga!Loki, at least. The series is really cute, I think animesuki has the 26-ep batchtorrent listed, and it's one of my frequent reccs. :>

I have the digisubs already- and I have a friend (who is also on this comm sometimes, actually) who is constantly pimping it - I'm going to have to actually spend the time to watch it, I guess. :) I liked the three episodes I saw - it's just been a time issue.

maybe someone can create a 'liscensed_fma_rant' community

*can't stop laughing at that for some reason*

How about...'poppy_cock'

XDDD or even 'flap_doodle' ..hell you can even shorten it to 'fm_rant' and make it this comms. sister community. o_O
Ghost: [Ed] ...*THUD*dr_ghost on May 12th, 2004 01:16 am (UTC)
XDDD The sad thing is, with so many communties that are really not required lately, I can SO see that happening XD <3

You think that's bad? I have about 3 friends in F_W. All day, it's been:

"Dude, your fandom..."

Speaking of which did F_W get banned or something? I havent been able to access it today once ^_^*

The topics that came to be in the two or so hours I was gone from the computer startles me. I understand the shock last night but....yeah. Old. So is the one about fangirls (coming from the one who complains about them too. Go figure. =P). And my comment is old. I'll shut up now.

Can we go back to discussing the actual show now? I miss that. ::crawls into a corner and weeps::

ouuu sankyuu for the entry my friend's page was really getting flooded with the same topic for a whole page i scrolled down today x.x;;

eeeh people will make their own entries to rant about it- or a community which still amuses me XD
Blutarskyblutarsky on May 12th, 2004 12:49 am (UTC)
Yeah we need to move on. This is getting really irritating. I let my frustrations out and I can breath again. It's gonna be ok... *shakes*
Ghost: [Ed]  ...I rock...you know it...dr_ghost on May 12th, 2004 01:11 am (UTC)
Very well said X_x/

Before, I was just getting hacked off about the spaz, so requested it stopped. Then I started to get annoyed at the number of "stfu" posts that were following as well as the spaz still...and blah, yes, very well said <3
what you were then i am todaynozomi_no_da on May 12th, 2004 09:23 am (UTC)
Exactly right. If people want to rant, either post it all in replies to ONE post, or post it in your own journal. It would make things SO much easier. ^.^;

On a note about the dubbing, though-- Funimation dubs it's opening and ending songs. O.o;; Now, the Fruits Basket OP and ED weren't bad, though I prefer the original-- but just thinking about the opening for Yuu Yuu Hakusho kills me. X.x
Luna: Fullmetal Alchemistlunaneko on May 12th, 2004 12:16 pm (UTC)
I know, they DO dub songs! That's kinda stupid, really, and waste of time and money, if you already got a great song, why bother dubbing it? And I've noticed they try to find singer with similar voice to original Japanese performer (like in Yuu Yuu Hakusho) Well, I hope they have a good luck finding someone sing Undo in that nasal weird way Cool Joke sings it, bwahahahaha!
