Fullmetal Alchemist has always been a soft spot for me, not only being the first anime I watched but the first TV show I came back for due to genuine interest in where the story was going. I only started following the manga about 3 years ago (I had to buy a copy as soon as I saw a picture of Envy's true form, I pretty much said "2003 series who?" when I saw that awesome image) but it was always a high point of anticipation every month, checking all the scan sites and dying a thousand deaths when it hadn't been posted yet (I felt that 100-fold today, good God). It really opened my eyes to how animation and drawing could be the most powerful tools of storytelling, and had better pacing, design and characters than most productions could dream of. Now that it's over... I do feel a slight detachment today. I'm just walking around deep in thought, ignoring my surroundings.
The past years have gone by much more quickly due to my monthly anticipation, and it's going to be weird trying to fill that empty spot. Arakawa, you are truly the queen of queens. Thanks for sharing, and I await with baited breath anything you come up with next.
Bring on the live-action movie (Come on, Guillermo Del Toro, Thomas Sangster, it could work... nevermind)!
