After several years, and umpteen different people, both online and in RL, trying to convince me of the wonders of anime, all attempts of which have failed miserably, I have astoundingly managed to get hooked on an anime series.
And the person who got me hooked on this series? Was, erm, me. And I did it by accident.
After all those fervent descriptions and links and clips and all that work people had put into getting me into assorted animes, I end up getting hooked because I am bored, and watching random streaming videos to kill time.
And it wasn't even Cowboy Bebop, either (Speaking of, tinyteddyqueen, I really must borrow your copy, just to see if I end up liking it as much as you reckon. The first episode didn't blow me away, but maybe I need a couple of episodes. It does have the most freaking awesome title sequence ever, mind).
Anyhoo, anime in question is Fullmetal Alchemist, which I am currently working my way through since I sortakinda bought the first half on DVD. And the guy at Animasia is putting the rest aside for me when he gets more in *facepalm*.
...So this is me, being mildly bemused by the whole thing
PS. I watched The Sarah Jane Adventures. Was not bad at all, though at times the kiddiness got to me. Though I shouldn't be surprised, seeing it's a kid's show and all. The next episode looks slightly less so, though, and I'll certainly keep on watching.
