got round to watching Fullmetal Alchemist.
Gone through 20 or so eps, and i must say i'm well impressed...first ep. really threw me a bit off balance with the cute-ish animation and themes and then - bam
- things go wrong and there's limbs flying and that thing
you only get a glimpse of but still realise what it was and it freaks you out...awesome stuff.
There's some killer humour, good action and some very nice themes going on with "side-stories" thrown in along for the ride.
Again, i love how it's not afraid to go all Elfen Lied on our ass at times with people dieing and that bad guy who does that thing.
It's really not something you would expect from the overall feel of the series - the humour, the traveling format etc - but it really helps set the tone for the state of mind of the main characters and makes the series pop out from the rest of the pack.
Awesome stuff, can't wait to finish it!
