FMA Meme - Day 12

Collapse )

Day 12- Your all-time favorite line(s)

My favorite is probably from Roy Mustang when he's fighting Ed in episode 13 of the original anime:

"A solider favors haste over cleverness, means there are no cheap shots. Strike quickly and you end it quickly too."

There are lots of really nice quotes, but one of the nicer quotes that I really like is from Izumi:

"When you live, your life will end sooner or later. The body will return to the earth. Grass and flowers will grow on top of it. The soul will nourish the hearts, and it will live on in the hearts of other people. Everything in this world flows around and circulates. That goes for human lives too."

I could name some others, but those are two that I like :)

Day 11- Your favorite fight

Probably the fight between Roy and Lust in the manga. There are some other great fights. Some serious, like the one between Ed and Greed from the original anime, and some not so serious like the one between Roy and Ed for Ed's assessment in the original anime. I did enjoy the last epic battle of the manga, but the one between Roy and Lust is definitely my favorite because Roy is all awesome and bad ass.

Day 10- Barry the Chopper: love him or hate him?

Uh well, in the original anime I thought he was kind of a waste of screen time, but in the manga I found him kind of amusing and at least he had a purpose in being there that added to the plot. I will forever be amused by him hitting on Hawkeye.

But overall... uh... I'm kind of indifferent actually.

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. :)

Day 7- Did you see Conqueror of Shambala? Your thoughts?

I did (I also had a chance to see it in the theaters, which was so fun), and you know what, I actually liked it for the most part. I didn't care for Noa all that much, but I liked that Ed and Al ended up together. I also liked that Roy seemed to be waiting for Ed to return. I liked the history aspect of it, and I liked seeing Ed in the new outfit. It was also nice seeing him grown up a little. Plus, while Alfons wasn't in that much of the movie, I did like his character, and the possibilities for fanfic and doujins. But mostly I loved that Ed and Al ended up together. As I stated before, I was sooooo sad that they were seperated. It just seemed so wrong.

Day 8- Your favorite antagonist

Hmmm... Good question. I'd have to say Kimblee from the manga, not from the original anime. I like how he's such a gentleman yet he's as corrupt as they come. He enjoys a good boom and a bang and maybe a good scream or two. I like the politely evil ones. *laughs*

Day 6- Your favorite Homunculus

I'd have to say Greed. Both Greed from the original anime and Greed!lLing. I'm not a fan of any of the other homunculi from the original anime, though I do like Pride and Wrath from the manga. I do really like Greed!Ling because he has that extra depth of being Ling and Greed, but I just like the whole posessive idea going on there.

Day 5- Who's scarier? Izumi or Hawkeye? Why?

I don't find either of them particularly scary, truthfully. I think they're both bad-ass and awesome, but I think Izumi is slightly more bad-ass because I don't think you'd see her turn into a blubbering mess if she thought Sig had died. She'd be pissed and go out there, kick some serious butt, and then when the danger is over and she had time, she would cry it out or whatever she needed to do.

So, in that sense, I would say Izumi.

FMA Meme - Day 4

Can you believe it's already almost half way through October? Time flies!

Day 4- Did you read the manga? What did you think?

Yes I read the manga and I actually really liked it. I loved the plot element a lot and it had a lot of characters in it that the anime didn't. I absolutely love the characters from Briggs. I wasn't very satisfied with the last half of the anime. It was okay, it worked, it fed my need for angst and I think because I didn't really care for it much I was able to feed my writing muse.

I know a lot of people didn't like the end of the manga because of who ended up with whome, and all that, but I'm going to be honest... I actually liked how it ended. It ended happy. I wasn't emotionally shattered by the end like I was with the anime (It broke my heart to see Ed and Al seperated like that :( ).

There were also scenes in the manga that we didn't get in the anime, like Roy fighting Lust. I also felt like the Homunculi made sense in the manga, which would be so since they were kind of winging it a bit with the anime.

FMA Meme - Day 3

Before I start, I'd just like to say that I finally took all my Christmas cards down from my front door. >_> No... really... I know it's October, but I just did it this morning. *laughs* I had to smile as I looked through them all for the last time because there wasn't a name on any card that I didn't recognize or that I didn't think oh yeah I like them, I wonder how they're doing... or oh they were excited for AWA and it happened and it was so fun to finally meet them in person or see them again.

I don't think we all give ourselves enough credit and recognize that just by us being who we are and existing in this world, that we make a difference in someone's lives. I know that all of you who sent me a card made a difference in my life every day I looked at the door and knew that Christmas was months past, but that seeing those cards made me smile. I also know that you made a difference in my life today as I saw your names and read your notes.

So, thank you. :)

*coughs* Okay enough of this kodak moment... >_>;

Day 3- Your favorite character.

Okay, this is an interesting question. Because I watched the original anime before I read the manga, I really liked a number of characters that I might not have liked as much or would have liked for different reasons if I'd read the manga first. I really liked Ed's emo-ness in the anime, but I'm drawn to angst anyway. And I really liked Roy Mustang, again, he had some great angst going, but he was a strong character and he wasn't a 15 year old boy. At the time Roy Mustang was far older than I was and I've always liked older men *winks* let's not get into the fact that Roy Mustang and I are now the same age... D:

So yeah, I was attracted to the angst factor first and foremost, which I feel like is not nearly as prevelant in the manga, and I feel like Ed and Roy and other characters are almost 'different characters' in a way, in the manga.

I also loved Maes Hughes and was completely devistated when he died. I should also add that I do like Riza, Izumi, Winry, and Olivia. But in the end, I'm going to say that Roy Mustang is my most favorite character. I like his character both in the anime and in the manga (though for different reasons). I love writing him and I love cosplaying as him. I think he's stoic, angsty, and kind of an ass in the anime, but in the manga he has this underlying dorkiness that I find endearing when combined with his focus on his goals and the people he cares about. Also, I love how he gets so wrapped up in avenging Maes Hughes's death.

So yeah. Roy Mustang <3
