I hope this bouncy sticks around, I'm quite enjoying it

Aaand we've just finished up our first ever iPartment Hour of PowerTM. And by "Hour of Power" I mean weekly hour of cleaning the iPartment in the hopes that we won't have to run around like headless chickens next time we are due for inspection.

I have playlist duties in two weeks time. Excellent.

Anyway, my bounciness of yesterday has carried on into today. Partially on account of Uni stuffs - stupid boring essay has been handed in, on time and everything, and on account of my weirdly sporadic Psych prac schedule and no classes on Friday, I only have one more class before Easter break.

But onto more important things. Namely fandom.

I has an icon of the shiny new FMA OP! It's so pretty.

And I went and watched the episode with fansubs, so I could actually tell what was going on (and they were actually decent subs).

Conclusion from seeing the episode with subs: It actually works much better, as it explains a few WTF aspects of the episode, and the jokes flow much better. And I can actually see how they could just shove manga plot after this and it'd work. Basically, I love it to bits. All of it.

That said, I'm rather curious as to how it worked for complete n00bs to FMA. I've seen a few old anime-only fans reactions (Mix of dislike for it being different, or confusion about the differences. Or just excitement) and the mangafen are torn between being annoyed it wasn't a manga episode, and squeeing at all the manga plot hints.

But I dunno how it works as an introduction, what with it being basically a case of HERE ARE SOME AWESOME CHARACTERS! HERE ARE THEM DOING AWESOME THINGS! HERE IS SOME (AWESOME) FORESHADOW OF EPIC PLOT! Then again, next week looks to be backstory central, before we get into the main swing of things. Which I can't watch live, 'cos of Cirque du Soleil.

Oh, how tragic my life is. ;)

*goes back to flailing*
