I'll post this while the emotions are running high i.e. me bawling my eyes out after just finishing reading.
I just can't quite believe it. The ending always seemed that
much further away. I've been following this for going on 6 years, and I finally have the ending. I don't really care if this sounds stupid but you cannot imagine how this makes me feel, and I'm sure many of us feel the same.
No other story has gotten me so captivated. The first anime is what caught my attention, and despite its flaws, I still love it beyond belief; it's what made me love FMA in the first place. The manga followed, and pulled me into another world that I loved, and still love.
All I really have to say is that I thank Arakawa so much for this, she doesn't know how happy she's made me right now.
