^ I'm with you on the whole feeling out of it thing and the wait.
I remember refreshing the manga thread every two minutes once the month started just to see if any spoilers came out early, even though I would always tell myself "This time, you're not gonna spoil yourself". I'd squeal once preview pics were discovered and then I'd fight my hand so as not to click on those links and pages each time and every month just got harder. I'd either give in or wait for a full scanlation and whatever the outcome, the chapter would always still turn out amazing. And then the same thing would happen as the weeks cycled by.
Now, I'm just lost. And just out there. FMA's been with me for about 4 1/2 years, starting with anime1 and I'd like to think it played a real role in how I am today and how I see things from often a more neutral point of view versus a hardcore opinionated once (Buccaneer's line regarding humans not being black and white) or how war's not a fun little adventure or gaining accolades (Ishval) and that no matter what, you can always stand back up and do something instead of just sitting idly by (just about the whole thing). It may be lame and cheesy to say so, but FMA did a lot for me.
Now I will you greatly, FullMetal Alchemist. I'd say my life has changed with you and without you, it will change again. Thank you to everyone, everyone for simply being a fan, enlightening my world with amazing predictions and debates, and contributing to translations, links, fanworks, etc. And thank you Arakawa. Farewell.
