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.

Shiki, The Vampires Are Cool Again Anime, Promo Up Now

Shiki, the anime that is making vampires cool again for me, has had it’s promo posted. Here be the link to it.

Shiki is about a village of roughly 1,300. Slowly, the people start to die off, and they eventually find out there is a vampire attack going on. That right there already makes it better than the other vampire shit the US has been releasing (Twilight). But what do I think based on the promo? well, there wasn’t really a whole lot to it. I know the art isn’t that bad, and there are some people that like to talk all at the same time, but that is about all I know from it.

Shiki is slated to start airing July 8th in Japan. ALso, it will probably be acquired by FUNimation based on the track record of Fuji TV anime.

FUNimation licenses Rosario Vampire, Chrome Shelled Regios, Chaos;HEAd and 3 others

Well, FUNimation has once again licensed some more anime for us to wait nearly a year to buy. But, I don’t care since at least there is still anime coming out in the US, even if we do have to wait forever when it isn’t Bandai or Sentai getting  them.

FUNi has announced at their Anime Central panel that they have picked up both seasons  of Rosario + Vampire, Chrome Shelled Regios, Chaos;HEAd, GUNxSWORD, Sora no Otoshimono, and Rideback.

Currently, all titles, except Chrome Chelled Regios and GUNxSWORD, are set to ship in 2011. The other 2 will be out this year. No word on whether they will see a BluRay release though.

Many people have probably already seen Sora no Otoshimono on Crunchyroll, but it is now taken down since Kadokawa only agreed to have it up for the Simulcast. But oh well, you can see it later when it is released on DVD. FUNi will probably release it on their website too, so for the free but legal crowd, there will probably be a way. those who refuse legal ways though, they can go and die in a corner. Don’t steal your anime when it is out to be bought.

FUNi May Not Edit DVD Version of Dance In The Vampire Bund

Well, it now seems FUNiamtion is starting to have some common sense and may not edit the DVD release of Dance In The Vampire Bund. They said they are going to wait for the rest of the episodes to come out before making a final decision, meaning they realized they fucked up and are just trying to make fans like them again.

I hope they won’t, but FUNimation isn’t always the smartest company in my opinion. Really, there isn’t much that they have to worry about. I am pretty sure everything is legal in the US since the characters are all of age and it’s not hardcore porn. Handley may have got screwed over, but without someone trying to release something in the original form, we will never know how far the dumb asses in the legal system will go.

Dance In The Vampire Bund US DVD Release To Be Editted

Well, what do you know, FUNimation is being a fuck ass again. This time they will be censoring Dance IN The Vampire Bund on DVD because “some material may be objectionable to some audiences.” Well, here is the problem, ANIME WATCHERS ARE USED TO “OFFENSIVE” MATERIAL FUNIMATION!

Hopefully the negative stuff from the viewers will convince them not too or the licensees will say no to the edits since this  is completely idiotic and will only lead to more fansub downloads thanwha would initially happen.

FUNimation is full of dumb asses.

Censors = shit

Uncut = great

Baka to Test to Shōkanjū And Dance In The Vampire Bund Licensed By FUNimation

Baka to Test to Shōkanjū, the Hideyoshi fanservice and gag anime has been licensed for simulcast streaming  online by FUNimation along with Loli vampire anime Dance In the Vampire Bund.

Baka to Test will start showing the first 2 episodes on March 5th at 11Am EST along with the first 4 episodes on Vampire Bund. I recommend both shows  to people that enjoy good anime, but those who enjoy things like Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Digimon should stay away from my Baka to Test so it is not ruined. I’m serious, if you think those 3 shows I just named are really good, quit reading now.

So glad this is happening since the Fansubs  groups were having the typical fansub drama  to make everyone feel sorry for them. Seriously, they should just start a fansub soap opera since that is how they act most of the time.

REMINDER: Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood Begins Airing Tonight

Just reminding everyone that FMA: Brotherhood, the new version of the FMA anime that follows the manga more will be starting it’s TV run tonight on Adult Swim at midnight.

Adult Swim had a dry run for a  couple months since they quit showing new episodes of Bleach to dub the rest, but this will make up for it.
