|06:42 pm - Plumbing depths of fangirlism I have never plumbed before|
So, I just went and downloaded a program so I could watch a live stream of Japanese TV. Just so I could watch an episode of anime, live. Despite not speaking a word of Japanese.
Despite going to watch the same episode when it actually has subtitles.
And you know what? I really don't care. Because it was Fullmetal Alchemist, and it was AWESOME.
I mean yeah, I had no idea what the hell was going on plotwise, but there was pretty pretty scenery! And nifty music! And characters I love so much! And FMA manga characters!
And OMG I am so ridiculously in love with the opening titles it is insane. I need icons of that, like, yesterday. And for it to be on YouTube so I can watch it over and over again.
And the ending was adorable.
*flails helplessly in fannish glee*
ETA: New OP on YouTube! ILU Internets!
And the ending!
ETA: Oh god, I think I terrified fa11ing_away with my fangirly flailing when she got home.
Current Mood: thrilled
I'm anxiously waiting for the ep to get subbed too, although I dídn't go as far as watching the livestream, no (wasn't this broadcast with subs simultaneously somewhere?). But that OP makes me want to see it, like, now, because OMG Hughes is back!
(Haven't read the manga, only watched the other anime). From the OP, it looks like Hohenheim is going to have a bigger role in this version than in the previous anime.
A convention in Brisbane was having the live-with-subs screening. Everywhere else is on a few days delay (or fansubs).
And since it's manga-based Hohenheim definitely has a bigger role. Which is good, because I love him.
Psst: there's a sub out...
And I just went through the trouble of finding the RAW, too..
Yeah, I've watched a rather good quality stream of the sub online.
It actually works better with the sub. I'm very happy right now.
Now, for people to start iconing it!
Oh my gosh, it's just sunk in that it's finally here! What a gorgeous OP, too. I find it really cool that they're sticking a bit more to the original character designs from the manga, it gives it a slightly different feel to the first anime.
Blimey, this is so exciting. I'm going to have to wait for subs (because that's how I roll), but I'm going to wait for them with maximum excitement!

I've been hyped over this all day. But then, I specifically set yesterday aside to write that damned stupid essay, so it'd be out of the way before FMA arrived. And aside from one or two moments of QUALITY, it looked great (as far as I could tell on my little streaming window)
Fansubs should be only a few hours off. Official ones are later this week.
But but but have you seen the spoilers today (probably old news to you) about the last Tennant episode of DW. OMFG my heart.
I'd heard rumours floating around for a while, and saw that picture a couple of days ago. It'll certainly be interesting to see what they do with that.
They had better mention how Martha utterly pwned him last time 'round. Or have Martha show, too, because the M's are my favourites
Isn't it glorious? I love it it to bits.
is the one everyone was using, but I think the amount of people at one time futzed with the quality, it was laggy and pixelated (It'd probably work well for less popular shows or channels)TVAnts
is a little more tricky to use, and the delay is huge, but it had better quality visuals.
