I first watced Full Metal Alchemist on a Thursday night at Denver waiting for Inuyasha to come on.I noticed thhat there was a new show on Adult Swim so I watched it.The first thing I saw was the pint sized Edward Elric.I tried to wake up my sister to tell her a new show was on but she didn't listen.I watced first puzzled about it then I began to understand.Tomarrow we would leave Denver for our home town Casper.I thought this was the only time I would be able to watch it.(the episode was the first one yay the only reasone why I was confused is cause they cut out a part) That Saturday night, I was sitting in front of the T.v with my brother and sister while telling them about this new show(watching Futurama at the time)my sister complained about why I didn't wake her up (as always ) later we where waiting for Inuyasha to come on again when Ready steady go started to play (i did not know the title back then) I was bouncing off the walls cause it played on Saturdays too and I was hoping it was the second episode so I could see what happend to Rose. It was the second episode and we all enjoyed it and so we added 2 new shows on our "to watch on adult swim'' list (the second show was Stand Alone Complex )
I made this sig myself, and I am very proud of it,PM me if you ;d like me to make you one too.

My friend, Ryuuko-san, told me about the basic background information on the morning busride to school sometime around...January 2004, I think (the exact month is kind of fuzzy, but it was fairly early in the school year...). At the time, I wasn't especially intrigued, as I had no idea what the characters looked/sounded like (it would have been very different if she'd shown me a picture of Ed ), and the names "Ed" and "Al" didn't seem very appealing to me...
After that, Hagaren kind of faded into the background of unwatched anime, until I downloaded 'Kesenai Tsumi' from an mp3 rotation site in May. I became obsessed with the song, but I didn't really look into the series...
In July, I went to a Chinese-organized summer camp, which turned out to be full of 3rd graders (), but on my first day they showed an episode of Hagaren in the auditorium in the aftornoon (episode 3- I was a bit confused for a while on which one ended up in the armor...). The boy showing all the subtitled anime told us that we couldn't watch anymore after episode 3 because it would start getting very violent (riiiight)...
After that, I searched for Hagaren subtitled episodes on the Internet, and was only able to find a site with epsiodes 1-3, 28, 39, and 40 for download (at the time, episode 40 was the most recent). I also downloaded Hagaren manga scanlations from links offered on this site, which prevented me from being completely lost in the anime episodes I could find. I was very fortunately able to discover a website a few weeks later with all available episodes of Hagaren up for download.
From episode 41 on, I basically followed the weekly releases of Hagaren through Bittorent. And the rest is Hagaren fandom at this forum.

I was at a small anime convention in November. I was wearing my Haruko (FLCL) costume and this girl dressed as Wrath came up to me and complemented my costume I told her I liked her costume too and asked who she was (it was a nice costume). She then began to tell me about FMA and I was intrigued.
I found it online and watched the first ten episodes the first night, it was like crack I was hooked! I watched as many episodes as I could each night.
So now I'm a total fan with a huge crush on Envy and a Lust costume in the making.
