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.

Hmm . . . haven't posted in this thread yet.
I used to be a gamer first and anime fan second, but now with the emergence of FMA in my life, that distinction has disappeared. I watched a lot of anime when I was young, mainly because that's really all they showed in Hong Kong that was directed towards children. Cantonese dubs, on the whole, aren't ALL bad, but I prefer the original Japanese even now.
I am also a bit of a Squaresoft fan, and I heard about the FMA game that they were producing and decided to check it out (and at that time, it didn't look too bad). Being the video game musician that I am, I searched for, found, and downloaded the FMA soundtrack, thinking it was the one from the game. It apparently wasn't, but I remember falling in love with the song "Brothers" almost instantly, and I sought to find out just what the FMA anime would be about.
Around the same time last year, there was an anime convention that I went to (the first con I've ever been to, since it was close), and they had a showing of FMA there. They showed the first three episodes, but I was already hooked after the end of the first one (good music, nice storyline, great concepts).
And that is how I got into anime again. Before FMA, I barely knew anything about anime. All the terminology people use when talking about it anyway. Now though, I'm proud to say that I do know a lot about the subject, even if I haven't been an aficionado for as long as some of you here.
