'New' Fullmetal Alchemist
Just saw first episode of this. For supposedly following the manga more closely, this episode was...well...completely original.

However, it seems it was just an introductory thing and they're actually going to get into the story now. Although it looks like they're going to do the origins first before they do Lior stuff.

Animation was great, character designs are more true to the manga which is nice. Original Anime had some awesome OPs and EDs, and while I don't think these ones are as good, they're not exactly bad.

Gawd, this makes me so epically happy it's insane. I'd forgotten how much I ADORE this series.

I don't think they changed the character designs at all. As far as I can remember they've put in a whole lot extra style changes (or whatever you want to call the chibli moments). I don't have a problem with the first ten times or so, but after a while it starts to grate on my nerves. I think it was the speech bubbles showing what Al was thinking when they were talking in bed that got to me. On the other hand, Ed's mace was amazing on far too many levels, and I /will/ be making it.

I like the op as well. I'm not so keen on the ed. I like most of the old op/eds, but none of them stuck in my memory as much as this op. Of course, FMA was one of the first series I watched and I hadn't got into the habit of paying attention to ops/eds then.

Overall, I think I'm just too insanely happy it's back to do anything less than adore it. It's also the kick I need to finally catch up on the manga, which can't be a good thing. I can't wait to see where they go plot line, and will probably be happy pretty much whatever they do. XD;;

I, uh, also had to cut my antennae back in. >>;; And am about 97% likely to go food shopping in full costume tomorrow. Just a heads up for anyone in Oxford.
