Full Metal Alchemist Parody Fansubs  
Chopstick subbing is doing parodies of Full Metal Alchemist from 40 to the end of the series. :^D For D/L info, check out the webpage.

At the moment Chopstick has brought out FMA #40 and #41. Both episodes hosted on a fast FTP. We're welcome to parody suggestions in IRC @ rizon.net #chopstick (#chopsticks is taken by someone else :X).

Also - concerning FMA's liscense in the US, Parody falls under Fair Use so long as the parody-makers are in no way claiming to own the copyrighted material (of which we're not).

Just thought I'd spread the word to fans.

Eh...while you're correct that parody is protected under US and international copyright law, using the entire copyrighted work is not. So, in this case, the parodyscript is protected, but the actual fansub isn't. It's still illegal. ^_^

Why would they choose to parody the episodes that have taken a turn for the depressing and dark? O_o It seems like the earlier ones would be a lot more fun to mock. *shrug* I dont like fan parodies so maybe I just dont get it~

Yeah.. I just watched the episode 41 parody.... The only really funny part was the part with Scar and Ed before the opening. Otherwise, it was a waste of time =/

Hummm, not sure if a parody is right for this show (*Or in specific, for these episodes*) but I'll download them to see what they're like, I love the parodies NarutoPower do with Naruto but then again Naruto, I imagine, is an easier show to do as a parody XD

And my final view...
...it sucked terribly O_o; Some lines were funny but some were so random it well....wasn't funny at all...
