Haven't posted here in a looooong time but I just felt that I had to write something about the new season. In short: It's awesome.

But the only reason that is, is because I am a long time fan who loves the manga as well as the previous series. I feel well at home in the FMA-universe; I know all about the story and the characters and ther traits (and quirks). And I love it. If I didn't, or if I weren't previoulsy acquainted with it, all the impressions, emotional scenes and whatnot would be severely less punch-packing. Bones seems to be basing this seasons primary source of emotinal weight on the knowledge that all of the viewers mostly consist of FMA longtimers, who will scream with joy just seeing their favourite manga-panels coming to life. I get that. I feel the same way.

But it's hard, really hard, to ignore the fact that this series could be so much better.
Some of the directing in the 6 episodes sofar has been downright poor, especially early on. Some, hm, conceptual choices and ideas doesn't really seem fitting, such as Cornello going all Supersize me with the stone, the 24-ish split-screens in the same episode, the somewhat inconsistent animation (sometimes awesome, sometimes completely weird, although this is probably not done intentionally) and the odd placement of jokes.

I have to give it some credit though, so I don't come off all pessimistic-sounding. For most of the time, the animation really is fantastic. And so is the music. And the voice-acting.

So summed up: Yeah, this is fanservice. At its best. And being a fan, I'm loving it. But at the same time... yeah, I just wished it would be a little less safe-play. And that it would generate actual emotions on it's own.

Sort of.

And on another note, whoever it was that said the music in episode 6 made it sound like everything took place in a "ristorante" on an Italian piazza, well, thanks a lot. If I hadn't read that one comment, I never would have noticed. Now, I couldn't stop thinking about it while watching dry.gif

Sorry!

It's just that one piece they played when Pinako was talking to Armstrong. Eventually it lapsed into the vocal version, though, which is a bit better. Back in episode 3 it was just annoying as hell when it played during Alphonse's talk with Rose.

Sorry!


You better be, dammit! Now I'm going to feel like I'm on a sightseeing tour munching on an Italian dessert every time that piece starts playing tongue.gif

It didn't bother me at all when Al was talking to Rose in episode 3, though. I don't know if the piece itself was a bit different then, or if it was because of the warm sunset-ish coloured surroundings, but I felt it had a more latin sound back then, which was way cooler wink.gif
