Hello!!!!! I finally made it!! After 5 days or so I finally finished finding Unanswered Questions on the anime of FMA!! They are posted below
in pdf format. If you don't have acrobat reader you can download it from here: http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/read...70_enu_full.exe
NOTE: Since it's freeware there's no problem posting it, right? If it is, tell me, please ^^.
Since it took me a while, it would be appreciated if you read it all.. but I warn you, take it easy.
BUT FIRST! I need to answer some thingies to TheVileOne:
[quote=TheVileOne,Aug 9 2005, 10:50 PM]Its not because they have different opinions its because they are spreading false BS and crap that isn't true. And I'm debunking it.[/quote]
You are not giving arguments, you are just insulting poeple and saying black if I say white, discussing it with personal opinions instead of real arguments that have a consistence. Even needing to resort to other films adaptations that don't prove anything you say about Full Metal Alchemist.
[quote]Oh I have read it, I just bought volume 2 in stores and finished reading it. I've also read the later scan-lated chapters.[/quote]
Weren't you the one trying to discuss me some manga terms when you didn't had read the manga yet since you said that you where reading it at the moment?
[quote]So? The Spider-man comics are the original, but the movies still rock. They made a lot of changes in the movie they stayed true to the characters and themes of the story. And some of the comic freaks which are the manga freaks like you for FMA STILL bitch, moan, and complain about the differences in the changes.[/quote]
Why do you have to go to other adaptations? Mind explaining me how does it prove you are right about FMA?
And watch it, kiddo. You shouldn't judge people you don't know. You are talking to a proffesional Producer, a proffesional Realizer and a proffesional cinema-critique here (yup, we are three. One that says "<censored for the kiddies> him, don't take him seriously"(^^U), the other one that says "nah, those idiots are everywhere. I don't know english and I don't know about forums, so leave him be" and me, who is the only one that has the decence to answer your insults. NO! And Dai! to whom you make him happy since he simply laughs at you and at whatever you say XD.
The only freak here is you. And the only manga I've ever read completely and more than one time is FMA, I'm more an anime"freak" than manga "freak".
And whether I like the differences between the anime and the manga or not is irrelevant. If you like them good for you, if I like them good for me, and if you or I don't like them, good for us too.
But since I don't like one bit what BONES did to FMA, I'll state my reasons and give my personal opinion about it, whether you like it or not.
After all, this is what this thread is to talk about.
[quote]You are getting into semantics, this is really not a big deal for me. It was a great visual moment, and it was done to show that it was still the homunculus manipulating people and events. Envy made them fly for a second and they blew up. That's all there is to it.[/quote]
Which means: "I don't mind the way but the result. If I just shut my eyes and ignore it, the result is perfect" --> Good for you, but I'm not discussing whether the ignorance is good or not.
[quote]So if in the off-chance that in the manga he does something else...will you throw a hissy-fit? Originally in the comics, Peter Parker doesn't shoot webbing out of his wrists like he does in the movies, does that piss you off as well?
And yet myself and others were able to accurately surmise that the person Envy was talking about was Ed's father, who obviously had some sort of dark past with Envy. Foreshadowing, allusions, whatever.[/quote]
Man, you should go to a cinema-critique convention and ask them to be in the active group, and discuss them your ideas with arguments and examples of other films instead of the film/show in question.
I would admit I was wrong. As I admit I was wrong about Envy not being able to transform himself into something inanimate since [spoiler] in the manga chapter 50 he does it [/spoiler]
. Who do you think I am? I'm not like you. I don't have a problem admitting I'm wrong about something (if they prove it).
[quote]Episode 3 he just falls in a shallow area. Episode 28, he wasn't completely submerged.[/quote]
Could you please at least be sure what you are talking about? Read the link I give bellow this page, see the episode, and then tell me if the transmutation circle doesn't get wet or not, because all the water in episode 3 was splashed over him, and in episode 28 he opens the armor and there's a lot of water coming from inside of it. At least, I check that what I'm going to say it's true.
[quote]Yes I can. Because being the philsopher's stone gives Al power he didn't have before, and that he could finally FEEL Ed when he was powered up was a big revelation, and Al was finally able to feel him again.[/quote]
Read the link below.
[quote]Well that's the kind of things I keep seeing you guys complaining about
Read the link below completely
[quote]See it as whatever you want. You can take it or leave it.[/quote]
So I was right after all... How nice of you.
[quote]Just because they are unanswered questions doesn't make them mistakes. It just means you aren't smart enough to figure it out for yourself
You don't have the right to call anyone stupid. And do you mind explaining me how does you calling me stupid prove you are right about what you say about FMA?
[quote]In the Constantine movie, making the character American, totally stiff and not charismatic or surly at all. He hates Heaven and God, but he constantly grovels and tries to buy his way into Heaven, something Constantine would never do. He hates Heaven, but he constantly uses Holy Water, crucifixes, and Bible verses as weapons to excorcise demons. Things in Christianity which are a symbol of faith in God and protection from evil. [/quote]
Let's see... I know certain Colonel that has a terrible switch on his personality because if he didn't [spoiler] he would have been Fuhrer in the movie, so the smartest move was to make him drop his title and status all of a sudden and go to the front lines to kill more poeple that is actually the fact that is tormenting him [/spoiler]
[quote]He also uses a Holy Shotgun, something Constantine would never and has never used.[/quote]
I'll tell the same way you would reply me: the fact that he doesn't use it before, it doesn't mean he wouldn't. So if in the comic he suddenly used it, would you shut up?
[quote]I'm not an idiot, I was able to see it, enjoy it, and figure it out. I think good stories are the ones that DON'T try to explain every little detail. I was able to see the answers, and I figured it out that way, I don't need to have every minute detail spelled out for me like you.[/quote]
Again, insulting... *sigh* that's how things need to be discussed, yeah...
I think that good stories are the ones that make sense when they say something and don't contradict themselfs every few minutes. (If you are going to discuss me this... first read what I posted below, completely, please)
[quote]To me it looks like he changes into the serpent image on the Ourobouros tattoo.
And to me, despite the fantasy elements, I find FMA to be a very real anime, that is the interaction between the characters and the emotions they feel. [/quote]
XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD sorry I laughed, but I couldn't help it. Read the link below, again, completely, and see BONES' super realism. Although you have a point, their emotions, when they don't change drastically from episode to episode, are very real, I have to agree. That's one of the reasons I like it.
And Envy is a dragon,read the link below.
[quote]No they don't. How does a spider-bite give a teenager super powers? They never go into great detail about it, it just does. And now he can shoot webbing out of his wrists, something he could never do in the comics before. In the comics he had mechnical gauntlets with web cartidges in them for that, but the movies totally did away with that. To this day, fanboys STILL complain about it.[/quote]
mm... how about you see the movie again and invite me to a spiderman forum to discuss it? Because in case you forgot, this is a FMA forum. No reason of any other manga, anime nor film will make me change my mind and make your ideas pass down my throat.
[quote]It was never confirmed because it was never said! This is only based on what we saw.
In one episode, Envy transforms his arm into a spike to impale Ed.[/quote]
I already said I was wrong.
[quote]When people call it "shameful, pathetic, and pitiful" and they talk about how it butchered the manga. I see it as an attack. And I am going to defend the anime from what I believe is erroneous bullshit. So whatever.[/quote]
I don't mind at all what other poeple do on other posts, that's their problem. The critic for the movie will be done after I see it. Even if I've read the summary and official stuff they announced, as well as the false advertisement they did (unless there's an extended version), that I don't need to check the movie to find out that is right..., I'm not going to say anything and I'll do it when I see it.
And by the way, where does it say that I have to praise
the anime because I am on the anime section of FMA. If you don't like the fact that I think that what they did to FMA was pathetic, shameful and pitiful it's your problem.
And instead of telling poeple what should they do inside the anime section of a forum, how about you ask yourself how someone should behave himself in a forum
? Because I think you forgot that a forum is the place where people state their thoughts and different opinion, while they should
discuss it maturely.UNANSWERED QUESTIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS THAT MAKE ME HATE WHAT BONES DID TO FMA, AS WELL AS TO SAY THAT WHAT THEY DID WAS CRAPPY, PATHETIC, PITIFUL AND SHAMEFUL:http://www.ahboba.com/otros/bonesmistakes.pdf
Please, feel free to answer any of those questions and exchange impressions (maturely, please).
