I really need to make this solidly regular, timing-wise, don't I? Sigh!

Catch the ep here and chat along in the comment thread!

An ACTIVIA commercial? SERIOUSLY? Is that....really something the anime crowd would be interested in?

Aw...still some buffering problems, and I'm NOT on my parents' network today. Hmm...

hmm I used to love FMA when It was on Cartoon Network. Now I just have a few questions. Does anyone know whether this new series will follow the storyline of the old anime or will it stick more closely to the manga?

Manga :)

Again with the "Ishvalan" romanization. Have you asked FUNimation what's up with that?

@lanaswift: 'Fraid not.

Ugh. I wish I knew why I was having all these buffering problems, even on different networks. I've tried clearing my cache, I've tried using different browsers, I've tried closing pretty much all the other programs...sigh!

Awesome now there's no question that I'm going to start watching. Now I have to go catch up to you guys first though.

@clovy: So far it's all been about 98% stuff that was in the original anime, so you could probably start here without any difficulty.

Seconded. Also, another romanization change. I think it was...Schiezka originally? Something like that.

Man, I hope I have time to watch the whole ep before I have to head out for the pre-con-party O_o Stupid buffering! Go! GO!

(Tangentially, Shieska telling her story on her knees in the middle of the screen fits perfectly in the little play box that pops up when you pause the video.)

Man, compare to the old series, the story is going pretty fast. I guess that this episode will match episode 20 of the old series.

@Agent_Lost: Well, yeah, but do you really think they'd match the original's pacing? Fans who had watched the first season would be bored as shit.

@lanaswift: Since I never read the manga, I more amazed how much filler the old series has.

@Agent_Lost: Does it really count as "filler" if it doesn't completely suck? ;)

@gia: I remember how must people were praising the so call "filler". Since it make sense and where logical.

@Agent_Lost: Absolutely. It still felt strongly narrative and was enjoyable as well-- it was filler, but not "fluff."
