Utena: With Sword

What, me post about FMA? Really?

Huh. Free time, I'd almost forgotten what that was like.

Not that I'm entirely free - I still have to study for my (one) exam, and write up my reflective essay or my internship. But classes are done, all my other assignments are done, and as of this Friday, my Internship will be done, too.

So, yeah. I actually have a bit of time to kill now. Which would be fun if it wasn't so damned hot.

So in order to take advantage of this shiny wonderful thing, today I... slept in really, really late. And fa11ing_away and I went to the pool. I haven't been to the pool in ages.

While I am on that note: Happy Birthday, fa11ing_away! *\o/*

For the more fannishly inclined, I am now all caught up on my FMA, both manga and new anime.

For the new anime, while I agree with the people who were somewhat disappointed at how some of the manga stuff on Ishbal was cut (there were some really, really good scenes), I'm not exactly going to raise a fuss, given it's entirely likely we may get more flashbacks later. I'm not sure how several straight episodes of flashback would mess with the stories pacing (The Ishbal stuff would really be more suited to a movie adaptation, anyway).

And as of the most recent episode... I really need a Kimblee icon. Because man, seeing him animated reminded me of what a brilliantly menacing psychotic bastard he is. Shine on, you entertainingly batshit whacko!

I also confess to being highly amused by this.

As for the manga, Collapse )

...Huh. Had more to say on that chapter than I expected.
