I didn't do this yesterday due to fail at work and having to deal with all of that, plus car problems. But look! I am back! *laughs*( Collapse )Day 9- Your thoughts on the first anime
Well, I kind of covered this before but I'll put another few cents in here. I really l iked the first anime. I loved the colors and the animation quality. I loved that angst factor. I did like it a little more before it deviated from the manga, but I like that there are many things that are different from the manga so it gives us a great alternate universe from the manga (and vise versa). I also love how there are things that are similar in nature but not quite, to both the manga and the anime. Like Roy losing an eye in the original anime and losing his sight in the manga, or how Ed loses the ability to do alchemy in the other world in the first anime and loses that ability forever in the manga (there are other examples but I can't think of them off the top of my head).
I didn't like the end of the original anime because, as stated before, Ed and Al were seperated. It was just a lousy, depressing ending. And of course there was no movie in sight when I finished the anime so I was left upset and scarred for quite a while.
Anyone who reads my fic will probably get the sense that I take my characterizations from the original anime for the most part. It is the 'original universe' that I build off for most of my writing, unless otherwise stated. More recently this leads to some luling and facepalming on my part when someone messages me and is like "Nice story, but the fuhrer is actually Wrath, not Pride" or other things that indicate that they've really never laid eyes on the original anime.
But yeah, loved the first anime. :)( Collapse )
