But I’ve been workin’ hard on some fiction and felt like crap for the last two days or so, so, mostly I’ve been pupafied on my couch watching only, quite possibly, the coolest anime ever…Full Metal Alchemist…which Vlad introduced me to and I am now addicted…and of course, like most things I watch, I like a lot of the characters but there is one who is absolutely my favorite:  ah yes, Col. Roy Mustang!  (Where do they come up with these names?  And his crew?  His military crew?  Names like Hawkeye, Fury & Havoc…I love anime!)  But yeah, love me some Roy Mustang…not only does he throw fire all over the place, he is snarky as hell and has severe moments of utter ego-mania…and he’s funny.

So, having watched the whole first FMA series, I am now working through FMA: Brotherhood which thus far I am not finding to be quite as good as the first series, but enjoyable nonetheless, and plenty of Roy in it, so that is good.    I also like this series overall because woah, it has a story, and the story makes sense, and well, over all…its really freakin’ grim.  Oh yeah, and automail.   So I guess this would be my allergy having/back pain riddled recommendation that if you are into such things, you should check out Full Metal Alchemist…and there is some added fun in there for fans of history and theology. 

And Roy Mustang.  Oh, and Major Hughes, he’s very cool too.  Oh, and Major Armstrong…bwaahahahahaahha!
