Fullmetal Alchemist brotherhood

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.

Armoured Alphonse

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…..❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Rumors or Reality

If you have stayed in Hostel once in your lifetime I am sure there will be a particular room having some or the other conspiracy theory.

The specific hostel wing was separated from the other three so that the seniors won’t get much previlage to rag the juniors.

Having a haunted room is not an issue. A common washroom is an issue. Which you have to pass that rumoured haunted room when you have the urge to pee at 2am night. Waking up you roommate at midnight and wait for you untill your work is over.

The room was always closed and never opened. It had a picture of “Lord Hanuman” outside the door. It was often said that some girl committed suicide there and after that whomsoever came to stay at that room experienced something bad happening to their loved ones. There were two girls who shifted after the case. One had their relatives accident and for the other girl she fell ill badly.

There was one more case in another hostel where a girl felt earthquake tremors in her room and felt her bed moving. And she ran and knocked the door of her other friend out of fear and shivering.

So the main question are?

Are they real or its just our consious and subconscious mind playing with us?? Sometimes when you switch off the light and see your mind playing tricks with you. You actually know that there is nothing to be scared but sometimes the noises can make you restless. For example if your rooms fan is in full speed and there is some poly bag hitting the wall.

I remember watching ‘Aahat’ during my childhood days and ‘Fear Files’ during my college days in a common room.

I almost watched almost every episodes of Aahat. And I remember the single episode I left at the cliffhanger it was a story of two sisters where one of them dies during childbirth and how she helps her other sister from being bullied. But never saw how it ended. But I am still curious to know how it ended.

Listen to Ghost stories was fun too. One of my friends during childhood would tell us fun Ghost stories and I was like really, that’s so cool.

During my college days I watched a movie named 1920, it wasn’t scary by the definition of others and more of a comedy but that particular day I had to join bed with my roommate as I was really scared. As the noise of the birthday decoration hitting the wall was annoying me. I didn’t realized what it was until the next day.

Somewhere in our deep subconscious it is already imprinted that if there is “God” which is a positive energy there would be negative too in the form of “Evil” spirits.

Many a times when we switch off the light there are imaginations that someone might be staring at us or something might crawl out of your bed. Especially after watching a horror movie.I guess many of us have been there at least for once in a lifetime or is it just few people who picturize too much??
