Love. Brotherhood.

Love. Brotherhood.

Full Metal Alchemist: BrotherhoodMy co-worker recommended for me to watch Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I actually intended to watch this before since this is the Number 1 Best Rated anime in MyAnimeList, but due to my stupidity, I ended up watching Full Metal Panic: Fumoffo and Second Raid. Then finally, I decided to lay time with Brotherhood. Boy, I was never mistaken to watch the series. This is my favorite of all time. I love every character of the series, from protagonists to antagonists. I love how the anime spent time with character development. And since Brotherhood went after the Manga, there are no fillers. Below is the synopsis found in MyAnimeList.:

Synopsis

In this world there exist alchemists, people who study and perform the art of alchemical transmutation—to manipulate objects and transform one object into another. They are bounded by the basic law of alchemy: in order to gain something you have to sacrifice something of the same value.

The main character is the famous alchemist Edward Elric—also known as the Fullmetal Alchemist—who almost lost his little brother, Alphonse, in an alchemical accident. Edward managed to attach his brother’s soul to a large suit of armor. While he did manage to save his brother’s life, he paid the terrible price of his limbs.

To get back what they’ve lost, the brothers embark on a journey to find the Philosopher’s Stone that is said to amplify the powers of an alchemist enormously. However on the way, they start uncovering a conspiracy that could endanger the entire nation, and they realize the misfortunes brought upon by the Philosopher’s Stone.

But what surprised me the most is the author of the Manga. I never thought that a well-written main stream Manga is written by a woman. Written and Illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa. Kudos to her. Such a masterpiece.

After I’ve seen the Anime Bakuman, I started paying attention to the Authors. Sometimes, we spend a lot of time talking about the Manga/Anime, but pays little to no attention to the creators. Bakuman, is also an anime I recommend to everyone who spends most of their time in Anime/Manga to watch. It will give you an idea on how these Manga publishing houses work.

Short Update!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone. Blog update was a little hard for me but I am determined to update, even with just a short one. I was really busy Christmas shopping. :mad: Since I started really late, it was really painful and very tiresome. But on the bright side, I did enjoy it.

As an update of my Christmas wish-list down below, I ended up not getting anything. I did return the InStyler, simply because it really didn’t work for me. I did spend a little more than usual on gifts this year. But it’s okay. Next year, I’m hoping it’ll be cheaper.

Also, my Supervisor at work introduced me to a Multi-level Marketing business. It does sound promising, but I don’t have a knack for business. I don’t know. I’ll just see. There’s actually no loser on this type of Network Marketing, just a quitter. I won’t reveal the name of the company just yet. Probably next time.

How’s your month going so far? Can’t believe this year is almost gone.
