I Officially Hate Fullmetal Alchemist Now!


PLEASE NOTE: This is by no means a high quality post, in fact, it is probably one of the shittiest I have done. There will more than likely be grammatical errors, run on sentences, and things that probably make no sense what so ever, but frankly, I don’t give a flying dog shit out of a rats ass since I do it for free and mostly for MY entertainment. More than likely, you will walk away if you read the whole thing thinking I am crazy and just nerd raged all over myself.

So, as you can see from the title of this post, I hate FMA now. Used to like it, but now I hate it. Mostly because it get  ratings that are too high, everyone who calls themselves an anime fan just because they watch FMA on Adult Swim, and because it uses the same tired old joke of “I AM NOT SHORT!” religiously.Oh, and it is partially because I started to attempt to re-watch it since my brother bought the first half of the original FMA, but I ended up just stopping because it was way to boring to me. Maybe I have changed over the years since it has been roughly 4 years since I last watched it, but it was just boring.

First, I will start off by addressing the rating. As you can see from my screen cap above, it has an average of 9.15 while Clannad ~After Story~ (a far superior show) has a rating of 9.07. I wouldn’t have cared that my favorite anime is #5 had FMA Brotherhood been below it, but what bothers me is the fact the FMA Brotherhood is at the top. I mean fuck shit balls, how many people from Adult Swim came and rated it that high? Because it sure as hell wasn’t like that before it came on Adult Swim. All the people that rated it 10 and 9 need to watch something other than AS, and if they watch a lot more anime, and still find FMA that good, then it is alright since they broadened their horizon. But most of the ratings came from the anime fans who only watch what comes on AS forgetting they can buy plenty from RightStuf and Amazon.

Now for the anime fans who have only seen FMA and think they are true fans. You aren’t, but you can be, all you gotta do is watch something else other than Adult Swim. This is one thing that pissed me off when I was in high school.

Everyone in the school knew me as the king anime watcher/gamer. Seriously, everyone knew that when I went home, that’s all I did, so I had quite a few of the AS only fans try to talk to me about anime, a lot. So, when I went off naming things like Toradora, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Clannad or Slayers, they looked at me like “WTF are those?” But if I were to mention Death Note, I was met with “HOLY SHIT! I FUCKING LOVE ELIMINATING PEOPLE WITH MY DEATH NOTE LIKE LIGHT!” *pulls out crappy home made death note* “SEE, ISN’T IT AWESOME!?!?” I myself like Death Note and all, but not that much. Damn it, I just realize I typed most of this paragraph with mentioning FMA. Well, you can essentially replace the underlined words with FMA related one to get the same thing.

And the retarded “I AM NOT SHORT!” joke, well, it was kinda funny the first time, the 1000th time after that, it wasn’t.

So, that was my rather crappy post about why I hate FMA now. I don’t expect anyone to actually find it of quality since I did it while tired and having to go to the bathroom really badly.

Working!!

I started my second job today. This time I will be temporarily working in the IT department of a pharmacy. It’s not really like the image above, but it is still better than standing in one spot for 5 hours in the sun. Though, I wouldn’t mind being able to work with Aoi Yamada since she is so awesome. Yamada isn’t in this image though, so it’s not that great.

Over all, it was a decent day, got some stuff done there, and came home to sleep. It feels like school in a way, except I’m the youngest there, I think. Haven’t seen anyone that is under 18, so I think I can safely assume I am the youngest. But who cares, I have a job, even if it is only for 5 or 6 weeks. That just means a little extra spending money for me.

Anime wise today, I have watched the 12th episode of Working!! and plan to watch the rest of Shuffle! volume 5 before bed. I am hoping to rewatch most of my anime by the time I start college in August, but I don’t know how that will go, we will have to wait and see. I doubt I will make it since that is like, 300 DVDs at the moment. To be precise, it is 287 DVDs, and possibly more since I am hoping to have My-Otome by next week, which will be another 7  DVDs. Thats roughly 5 a day, each being around 1.5 hours… Ok, I won’t make it, but I think I can do by the end of the year at least.

Well, I’m gonna get back to watching Shuffle! now. Thanks for reading what I had to say!

IT’S SUMMER!


Or rather, it will be in roughly 24 hours because of the summer solstice. But who give a flying dogs ass about that detail. It’s hot, people are doing things outside, and old people aren’t saying it’s too cold anymore (instead it’s my brother). But the main thing is that I graduated from high school 5 days ago. I officially started my adult life then, but it hasn’t been much different since I still have no job, I still play video games all the time, and I still spend a majority of my money on anime. Today alone, I spent $175, so I really need a job since it is hard to keep my pockets full with no income of my own.

Now then, who is excited about it being summer? Other than the fact that I am not in school anymore, I hate summer. It’s hot, the sun is too bright since my eyes dilate at what has to be the slowest speed possible. I walk out and it all looks like someone turned the bloom effect to max. Can’t see shit. Can’t wait for Fall and Winter though since I start college, which may or may not be any better than high school, but I can hope. Also, it will be cold, which is better to me since 72 degrees is hot to me.

I just realized something, it is 12AM, maybe I should start watching TV now. Oh well, I will be back tomorrow, and sorry if this makes no sense since I don’t plan to re-read it for mistakes or  coherency.

High School Is Almost Over

Well, my high school days are coming to an end soon. But that doesn’t mean the end of anime for me. In fact, it means more since I will finally able to get a job that isn’t only a week long. More money as means more anime to me.

Really though, I will miss school since many of my friends won’t graduate until next year. But that doesn’t mean I won’t see them or hear them. Many of them get online and hang out with me outside of school.

I’m sure you guys are wondering why I am posting this though. Well, that is because I am probably going to start doing these daily posts like I did when I first started this blog. So soon, the eriksmind part of the URL will once again make sense.

That is all for right now, this was typed while I was playing Halo Reach, so I didn’t put that much though into it. But the rest will probably be better.

Today, No Body Was There

At school that is. This weekend is the “Lets get fucked up at the beach and get arrested” weekend for our school students. I myself won’t be attending, but thanks to them not coming to school today, I was to make through all my periods of school doing nothing at all. It was great.

But, I ended up having to go to my final day as the sign guy for my local Movie Gallery. They are ceasing sales of DVDs today and stopping all functions tomorrow. It was good while it lasted though since I did get paid a decent amount for doing almost nothing for 25 hours.

Now that I am home though, I think I will watch some anime. It is after all my addiction. Who needs drugs when you can watch watch Japanese Porno cartoons? Probably gonna watch the final episode of Hanamaru Kindegarten and start the second season of Slayers.

Well, good night, people of the Internet.

Excitement Is Coming!

But one does simply siege tank the hell out of the enemy base in Starcraft.

It’s been 237 days since I last did a post like this. I think I will start doing a daily update again since it was one thing I enjoyed doing a lot and can’t quite remember why  I stopped.

Today was, rather uneventful. Lost ended up coming on later thanks to shitsketball, but the fact that the beta forums for Starcraft 2 came up on Battle.net made up for that. I can feel the anticipation coming every day now. They might as well just release it already since I doubt there is much else they can change in 12 days. But, even if it doesn’t come out tomorrow, I still have ot level back up to 70 on Modern Warfare 2 and finished all the anime I bought.

Regarding the anime, I have Baccano, Slayers 1-3, Ai Yori Aoshi, and all the shows  I watch on Crunchyroll that I got behind on. Oh yeah, I still need to watch FMA: Brotherhood. So yeah, I still have plenty to do while I wait for the  beta. You know what, instead of typing more of this post, I think I will go watch some anime right now. It’s only 10:30PM so I still have sometime left before I become to tired to stay awake any more.

I guess this is bye for now then.

Sorry About The No Post

I was distracted by the awesomeness that is my new laptop. I got the ASUS G72GX-RBBX05 gaming laptop and I am amazed at is sheer awesomeness. Tomorrow, I should be back sometime in the morning or I might post one last thing tonight related to one of my favorite shows of all time. But either way, I will be back. Plus, tomorrow will be my after Christmas shopping run. $326 to spend on more than likely anime.
