Just after finishing Naruto and Bleach, during the lockdown season of 2020, I was wondering what to binge watch next. So, I was just browsing through Netflix one day and analysing the recommendations and thinking which anime shall I watch next.
Seeing “One punch man” on my recommendation was a great relief. And I started the first episode…..and happily I went to the language section to select the language as English and there wasn’t any. I was so much disappointed with that. I instantly closed the series.
Ok!! I know I know there is a sub vs dub war always going between anime fans…..and to be precise I am not gifted with ‘sharingan’.
The fact is I skipped ‘one punch man’ despite knowing it’s an awesome series because I wanted to watch the series in a language without using much energy.
Then, I stumbled upon ‘Fullmetal Alchemist brotherhood’. I kinda liked the name actually to be true and it was also dubbed in English. So, without checking any reviews or ratings online I watched the first episode.
And the first thing on my mind which came while watching the first episode was :
“The opening and closing theme song was awesome and so much catchy with spectacular and sweet animation with the main characters”
This fantastic fantasy story revolves around two brothers name Edward and Alphonse who were Alchemist by profession and committed a taboo in the story arc which led to one of them losing the entire body and the elder brother losing an arm and a leg.
And the second episode made me realise that ” It was darker than DC”. Sorry NO offense 😂.
The story is set in early 1900’s and the setup lookeed like that. The story is really dark and gruesome and not at all for kids. But for relief you can listen to Alphonse’s sweet voice.
Although it gets a little slow in between but that works as the storyline is great.
Depicting the misery of wars and losing everything in life…..the saga will give you a rollercoaster ride of magic, darkness and pain. It has everything.
Characters like Greed, wrath,lust etc which everyone of us is made of is displayed very precisely in their homonculous form.
And the best part is that it is just a 63 episode anime. So, it can be finished without taking much time.
And last but not the least the ratings are above 9 out of 10. So, no doubt it is well loved by people as well.
Have a great watch ahead…..❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
