    Epic Memories, just epic...
    Melodies is great but if you compare with memories...

    Speaking of epic, epic jaw dropping Katanagatari ep 4...

    She was like a killing machine, the only emotions she shown was that dark grin just before dealing the final blow...

    She's a maniac, lol.

    The background song was in Vietnamese, and the lyrics were quite meaningless. It surprised me!

    Its pretty amazing you could decipher them at all...:toast:
    I thought it was pretty funny that the Dad (who was a legend) wouldn't train her because he could in no way control her..God help anyone in that anime if she gets pissed at them..

    The thing is, she is very intelligent, so hardly anyone will have the best of her and unless someone points a blade at her, they might live to tell the story...

    Damn a full 30 day for the next one or more as it airs only on the 21...

    I love this anime, it's so unique! I don't know why people dislike it.

    My 1st language is Vietnamese, that's why :D.

    Wile, if you need to compare by watching the first one again... You need help remembering epic stuff.. :roll:


    Nah, it's feels to be the same till episode 8ish.. Then after that, it goes WAY different way then the first one.. That's why there really isn't a reason, we think, that it's worth re living...


    Unless... Mussles has the "filler list" for that show as well... Which is something I should add to the op..

    I liked the first series tho. So it doesn't bother me to rewatch it. I'm not the type of person that cares if it follows the manga or not. A good anime is a good anime to me. I just hate filler eps in things like bleach, because the filler arcs just suck. They haven't had a single filler arc worth watching. The original FMA didn't have that problem.

    I'm with you on that. I do tend to go back and watch FMA from time to time. I know I'm one that all ways watched the "dubbed" versions since their enjoyable to rewatch. But, man, Brotherhood makes it just feel.. dirty to go back to the first one.. No matter if you got two T-shirts of FMA like... :D


    Think of it this way... by time you get done watching the 52 episodes of FMA.. 63 should be done, and you can watch it all! Because Episode 53 was SWEET, and 54 is going to be GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ya know a good one to watch is "Spirited Away". Its full of a lot of Jap cultural references which make no sense but the movie itself is captivating.

    I also loved the first season, i wont compare both or will i say one is better than the other, just that the first had a lot of awesomeness and for me the first episodes of brotherhood where a huge mess...

    By the way the first FMA was higher rated than the 2nd the last time i checked...

    Not just chiiro but every single Ghibli/Miyasaki movie is worth watching...

    I believe the reason that the first, fma, had the bigger rating is because of the Goofyness it brought to the table. FMA: Brotherhood is not a laughing matter. The first one was light hearted, funny, great to watch. FMA: brotherhood is, action packed and story driven. More going on, the second one, then the first one ever had.

    When Huges died in the first one, you where.. OMG, WTF.... NOOOOOOO... This second one, you know what's going to happen. Huges death was given more spunk in it, the second one, but it wasn't walked around like the first one was. The first one built so much suppense on the little things, that when it all happened, it was.. Breath taking. This second one. It's right to the point. You know whats going on. You don't have a though of, how is it going to turn out.. Not like the first one..


    I've enjoyed from episode 48 on of FMA: Brotherhood. But, if you made me think which one i remember the most.. FMA hands down.

    LOL, its not as much naked as L vs B (dam) but I really love the story..Kid works REAL hard to get into a great school to be a "High Priest", able to change the world for the better... Turns out on the first day he finds out he is The Dark Lord.. oops, so much for mister goody 2 shoes

    So far my fav character is the observer (great sense of humor)

    Honestly I don't know WTF I am watching half the time. If it gets TOO Japanese I tend to just get drunk and fap at boobs.

    I actually don't like that method of story telling. I like the building of suspense. I have a weird feeling I'm going to like the first one better.

    Couldn't resist... I am loving this so much at the moment! I don't think I've had such a good laugh with any other recent anime. A part of me thinks I'm too old to be watching this style of anime, but the other half is enjoying it too much to care.

    If you haven't, treat yourselves to one episode :laugh: :roll:
