Anime News Network confirms a new FMA anime in the works, to be announced on the latest volume of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga.
All I have to say… if it’s based on the manga (which, by the by, is still ongoing. READ! READ!), then this is awesome news. If it’s a continuation of the original anime, it should burn in the trash for all I care.
Ed finally meets Pride face-to-face. Okay, not really, since the little bugger’s main body was hiding in the shadows and Mr. Lion King Heinckel was the one that was majorly kicking Pride’s ass (although Pride’s facial expression says otherwise). Oh man, I hope he doesn’t die.
Anyone else imagined that Soul would have a Romi Paku-like male voice if animated (… probably just me), and was surprised by the voice of choice? Granted, I liked it, but hearing a badass-sounding Roxas coming out of his mouth shocked the hell out of me.
Rather than painfully blogging through all the episodes I’m behind on, I’ll marathon this and will eventually catch up up to the most recently aired episode. First episode says it all: count on Bones to deliver non-shoddy shounen action scenes (thank God if the rumors of them animating a new FMA anime are true). Maka’s voice is smexy, Death Scythe’s a horny bastard, and Blair’s as loaded as ever. Black Star sounds a little too young… no, feminine, but meh. EDIT – Take that back. Second episode has him clearly sounding like Laharl (Disgaea), even though it’s a completely different seiyuu. That is win in my eyes!
I find myself addicted to the opening song by T.M. Revolution (maybe because this is the first time in a while that I’ve heard him sing such an awesome song solo?) EDIT – Sounds like kickass ringtone-material, no?
(According to the fansubbers, since I’m only watching the Late Night version, my soul is in danger. ï¼ˆï¿£ã¸ï¿£ï¼‰)
I’m now very, very convinced that I’m a masochist due to the fact that my sweaty-self seems to enjoy blogging during painfully hot days… but why do I find myself loving this overly peaceful, yet totally satisfying, anime?
What can I say? The cellshaded, video game-like animation in this movie was awesome. Along with the superb direction of fighting choreography, the action in this movie was absolutely kickass. To tell the truth, if it was just another run-of-the-mill, hand-drawn, and digitally colored anime movie by Bee Train, I wouldn’t have payed attention to the action as much as I would’ve payed attention to the can of coke I was drinking to pass the time, thinking: “When the hell is this shit going to be over?” The anime portion of the .hack franchise has always took a nice direction in character development, but certainly not the action (count on the games to take care of that). This movie was a great balance of both, and it was really like watching a video game. Great graphics, good eye-candy.
Unfortunately, watching a video game and playing a video game are two totally different things. When taking the G.U. games into account… I honestly don’t know if I should really recommend this movie to anyone.
