The new Fullmetal Alchemist is out and...I don't love it. I'm not even sure I like it. I was under the impression that this reboot was supposed to be more faithful to the manga and yet it seems even farther away with the introduction of a new alchemist. It seems like the original anime at least started out pretty close to the manga before diverging into an alternate universe. This one just plunges us into one head first. Oh noes! Beware the ice alchemist! He's full of ham handed foreshadowing. Just beat us over the head with it why don't you? You get re-introduced to a bunch of characters you already know and yet you don't know them because they sound different. Oh, and the opening song? MEH! Compared to the previous season's opening and ending songs, this one is pretty crappy.

It's only one episode, so who knows what could happen from here, but for me, they didn't start out on a very good foot. It seems like they jammed a bunch of stuff into an episode and hoped we'd love it. And I didn't. I don't love the first anime either, but it's still ahead on my book.

On the upside, the new anime is pretty. Although, some of the characters just seem to have a dumb look on their face. Riza seems to be a victim of the dumb look. Nooooooo!

Oh hell, who am I kidding? I'm trying to find nice things to say, but I'm just flat out disappointed. I'll keep watching and hope that it gets better, but I'm not holding out for any miracles. =P

I'm in love with Library War. First there was a character taht reminded me of Roy Mustang. Now there's a character that reminds me of a young, pretty Frank Archer. ♥ Pictures )
