Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA): Episodes 1-51

I just finished the series FMA and am now depressed (also to the fact that I had a frightening phone call earlier from a friend, I won't get into that though). Back to the main subject, FMA IS THE BEST ANIME I HAVE EVER WATCHED IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE OF THE WORLD!!!! I haven't seen the OVAs*, yet ... This has to be the best written anime ever,unlike most anime, the manga actually has way less episodes/chapters than the anime itself! And also, unlike most anime I've watched, I decided to watch the dubbed version (English voices). I just couldn't bear even hearing Edward because he sounded so much like Maller (Maaraa, a female deamon from Oh! My Goddess! Her name's Maaraa because there are no l's in Japanese). I wonder where I can find the OVAs? Hmm, They'll probably all be in Japanese anyways *sigh*. Oh well...

Did you know they're airing season 2 RIGHT NOW?!?!? It'll just take another couple years though before they're in English, and that, my friend is another reason I want to be fluent in Japanese (I'm on class 2/4 right now...). So I can speed up the raw form into fan-subs and then once they get popular enough they'll finally get dubbed (which is usually a bad thing, since shows like Fruits Basket cut out so much when they switch it over...). I only got 3 hours of sleep and at the rate I'm going I'm not going to get ANY tonight. Weeee, Zzzzz.... I can see why Rachel (Morocco) and Kaleb basically treat this anime like a god, because it kind of is. It makes you think really deep about things and the way the story line went was crazy! It sucked you in but then at the end it just kept getting darker and darker.... Okay, NOW I'm getting sleepy...

*OVA stands for Original Video Animation. Which usually never is translated into English, sorry dubb fans.
