Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Author: nextday

 

As someone who has seen the original 2003 anime it was a pleasure to learn that Hiromu Arakawa's popular series, Fullmetal Alchemist, would be getting a remake that is faithful to the manga. When the first series aired back in 2003 it was praised by many as a masterpiece, so as you can imagine when Brotherhood was announced many people were doubtful as to whether or not it could live up to the first series. To many people’s surprise however, Brotherhood far surpassed their expectations.

It was Absolutely brilliant!

That was a "outburst" start but i really enjoyed this first season. It was filled with the expected comedy and sexiness expected from an ecchi. Other than the amazing visual art and epic fight scenes, I really did enjoy the plot of this season. 

For the girls it might be a little discriminating (this coming from a guy) but you will enjoy it too. It has an excellent balance or comedy and romance for you too enjoy.

Magi: the Labyrinth of Magic

A long, long time ago, there was a man named Timekeeper who was scrolling through Netflix with a bored, glazed look in his eyes. Through his wanderings, he stumbled upon a series called "Magi: the Labyrinth of Magic". It looked appealing enough, but he wasn't sure whether or not he was motivated enough to start a new anime series. He then darted his eyes towards his ever-increasing pile of bills, research papers, and calls from his mother wanting to chew him out over something trivial. It was then he decided that he would give the series a watch.

Shiki (Timekeeper)

I quite honestly don't recall how I even came upon this series. I wasn't recommended that I watch it by another forumgoer, I didn't see it on my suggestions on my MAL page, and I didn't watch a lick of it on YouTube. One thing I do know is this: I'm certainly glad I came upon it. Because not only is Shiki one of my favorite anime series of all time, but it's probably my favorite of all time when it comes to the horror genre.

This is another one of those 'one of the greatest' for me. This is perhaps one of the best horror stories ever told. It is presented in such a way that it's not very predictable, and the plot actually has a point to it. Rather than just trying to entertain the viewers, which it still does very well. So what is about Shiki that appeals to me? I believe it's the great animation, soundtrack, dubbed voice acting, and the overall plot.

Okay, yes. I did say in a thread earlier beforehand that I was going to review Gankutsuou next, but to be perfectly honest, the show is taking more time to get to where it's going than a snail strapped to an anchor dragging it's way from one end of the Sahara to the next. So unless the show has a point it's trying to reach, which I really hope it does, I don't see how I can write a review in which I'm investing about as much time into as the US government is investing in anything but war.
