Fan Girl Favorites! The Differences Between Fullmetal Alchemist And Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Hey guys! Welcome to another Fan Girl Favorite! It’s been a while since we’ve done these too! So I’m glad I get to write another one for ya! This time, I’ll be talking about the difference between Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood so get ready for a bit of a rant here my friends eh heh. Plus, if you haven’t watched either of these be forewarn of spoilers. Alrighty, let’s get to it!

Looking at Fullmetal Alchemist, it was the first to come out. It was supposed to diverge somewhat from the manga and be almost like a unique take on the beloved manga. Yea…that ended realll well. The way they started off the anime wasn’t too bad, it showed what the brothers did to bring back their mother—the ultimate sin of trying to create a human soul. It didn’t end well as we all know. Ed lost his arm and leg and Alphonse lost his entire body. They paid dearly for what they did because and I quote “What could possibly equal the life of a human soul?”

“What could possibly equal the life of a human soul?

The Laws of Alchemy

This was very similar to Brotherhood. Except for the fact that instead of just muck and random hair that came up out of the void as it showed in Brotherhood, they made it so that a homunculus was created. From both Ed and Al’s mom and from Ed’s arm and leg. This created the homunculi Wrath and Sloth. In Brotherhood, this didn’t happen at all. Frankly, in my opinion, I didn’t like the fact that those homunculi were created it just doesn’t make sense that homunculi are created through human transmutation. I feel like it made more sense in Brotherhood to say that they were created from Father, the Dwarf in the Flask to be more precise. My reasoning for this is because they say the Dwarf in the Flask was the original homunculi. So of course others would come from it.

Another big divergence between the two is the whole storyline in general. They wanted Fullmetal Alchemist to divert from the manga, but it really diverted and not in a good way in my opinion. I could go on and on about all of the differences, and believe me, there are so very many. But here is the main one, seeing that when Brotherhood was made it copied the manga perfectly we got to see the major fight that went down. After all of the homunculi were killed—well, aside from Fuer Bradley and his son, they had to deal with a huge battle in the capital of Amestris. Many died, but afterward once GreedLing sacrificed himself—I swear this anime makes you cry many times for so many characters, anyways once he sacrificed himself he was able to kill Father completely. This then made it possible for Ed to get into the Gate and talk to the Truth and got his arm and leg back and Al’s body back.

While on the other hand, we have how Fullmetal Alchemist ended. Oi vei don’t even get me started. From having Ed’s and Al’s father have a connection with Dante, being over a hundred years old, and basically having the homunculi as their failed children because they lost their son to a plague. And oh yea, Envy in that anime was the cause of Ed and Al’s father doing a human transmutation to bring back his son. So in a way Envy is Ed and Al’s brother. Hah, there are so many things wrong with that I can’t even.

So to sum up my friends, aside from yours truly having a bit of a bias to Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, there is an incredible gap of a difference between the two animes. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood follows the manga perfectly, while Fullmetal Alchemist barely touches it. Now, I will admit Fullmetal Alchemist does have its good points, Brotherhood has a lot better and more good points.

What are yall’s opinions on the two animes? I’d love to hear them! Or if you want to just fan about the animes with me bring those awesome conversations! Well, that’s all for now.

Rebel Fae out!

Fan Girl Favorite: Extra Lessons Episode In My Hero Academia

Hi everyone welcome to the newest article of Fangirl Favorites! This time I’m going to be discussing the episode in season four of My Hero Academia. You know, the episode where Bakugo and Todoroki have to go and have extra lessons because they didn’t get their Hero Licenses. You guys know the one, where Gang Orca gives the four of them–Bakugou, Todoroki, and the two Shiketusu students the task of trying to “tame” the small class of little kids and their unruly quirks. That episode was highly entertaining and strangely heartfelt in my opinion.

At the begining of the episode we can clearly see that our gang of heros have their work cut out for them with these kids. The kids don’t want anything to do with them and they are hell bent on running amuck throughout the stadium.

After Todoroki’s and the others attempts to make nice with the students-Tokoroki trying to explain in great and boring detail who he is, Cami trying to make friends with the little girls only to be called a floosy in return, and our hurricane boy Inasa, oh boy don’t get me started with that poor sap. It ends up being Bakugou’s roundabout suggestion of showing their power, so to speak–he actually suggested fighting them, works!

The kids come at them head on and our group counter attacks with using their powers and making a miniature theme park! It’s really quite adorable how after the ice slides random explosions, wind rides and etc. entertains and calms the kids. Even a few words from Bakugou to the main little twerp turns the kid to the good side! Now that’s awesome!

The other thing that really stood out to me was the proclamation from Endeavor to his son that he will be not only a better hero, but be a better father to him. Sure, words can be just that, words. But you can truly see and practically feel the emotion behind it. And that’s what makes the final episode of season four so powerful.

Both of these points made this episode just fantastic! And I really hope they have some heartfelt and easy going episodes in season five considering what’s going on in the manga….

Well, that’s all for now! See you guys next time!

Fangirl Favorites! Overhaul vs. Deku!

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Fangirl Favorite! This time, I’m going to be talking about a certain epic battle that takes place during the fourth season of My Hero Academia. That’s right I’m talking about the fight that went down between Overhaul and Deku! And goodness was that a fight!

The way it played out was so intense. You feel as if you look away for one second you might lose an important moment in the match.  Not one moment left any room to breathe. From the moment that Deku runs in to help Sir Nighteye—cries and slightly dies on the inside, and Lemmillion you know that this match is going to be intense.

And intense it was. With Deku at one hundred percent, he just keeps going at it and beats Overhaul down till he has nothing left. Well, at least that’s what it appears at first. No one could have predicted that Overhaul would destroy some of his supposed comrades and meld them into himself to grow stronger and try to defeat Deku. Thanks to Eri though, Deku was able to defeat Overhaul. And that finishing move that he pulled? Man, that was epic! It was quite reminiscent of the move he pulls off in the second movie. But that’s another article entirely.

Out of all of the fights in this season—aside from Rampas’s, Fatgum’s, and Kiri’s fight, this one is one of my favorites. It was so action-packed and you couldn’t take your eyes off the screen for one minute as I said before. What was also cool is the fact that Deku proves Nighteye’s vision wrong. That means there’s still hope for All Might. But we still lose an amazing hero and another’s hero’s quirk is lost. Que the sad fangirl whimper.

Aside from the sad part, Eri still gets rescued and the battle was absolutely phenomenal. It’s something I wouldn’t mind watching again and again. Well, that’s all for this Fangirl Favorite! See y’all next time!

Fangirl Favorites: My Hero Academia Character: Dabi

*Warning! Major spoilers down below

Hey everyone and welcome to this week’s Fangirl Favorite! And for this article, whoo goodness do I have a doozy for you guys! That’s right, this week I’m going to be talking about the chapter that has My Hero Academia fans buzzing! When it officially became canon that Dabi is in fact Touya Todoroki. So, let’s get to it eh?

Okay, I can’t be the only one who even though knew this was coming—I mean come on the way he acts to Shoto in the second season and just his look in general, but I digress. But as I was saying even though we knew this was coming, it still took me by surprise. I mean, we knew it was bound to happen, but they could have very well pulled a one-eighty and made Dabi, not Touya. Probably wouldn’t have had such a powerful impact among fans but still. I am really happy that he is in fact Touya. Plus, the looks on the rest of the Todoroki family—especially Endeavors, now that’s definitely going to cause even more turmoil in that family. Hopefully, it won’t cause irreparable damage.

Also, when it was revealed that Touya, in fact, has white hair instead of red surprised me greatly especially seeing that his quirk is so similar to Endeavor’s. But when they showed that scene in the manga where he rinsed off the dye and it revealed it, I thought they did that pretty well. Plus, I can only imagine what this will do to Rei seeing that not only did she believe her son was dead, but he looks the most like her and he is her firstborn.

Talking about his quirk though, it now makes sense how he got his horrible scars. Although I think there is a lot more to it than what was divulged to us. The fact that his quirk burned so fiercely that since he didn’t know how to control it well—assuming because Endeavor refused to teach him, he burnt himself up pretty badly. But on the other hand, when we were shown that he was supposedly dead by a fire that brings up a lot of questions!

All in all, I’m super excited to see how this goes in the end. There are so many different ways this could go, especially since he completely lied about Hawks killing Best Jeanist seeing that he made an amazing comeback in the last few pages of the newest chapter. We’ll just have to wait and see where this rollercoaster journey takes us eh?

Fan Girl Favorite: Ramen

Hi everyone! And welcome to this week’s Fan Girl Favorite! Today I will be talking about the food that is not only almost every college kid and otakus favorite to eat, but a certain anime Ninja adores this food as well. That’s right, I’m talking about Ramen! So let’s get started, shall we?

We all know that ramen comes from Japan, but do we know how exactly it became so popular overseas and among your average day person? It’s actually quite simple and very interesting. The very first whispers of ramen actually came from China. Yep, you read that right y’all. It originated from their wheat noodles! It’s funny how something so delicious can come from the most unexpected things am I right?

It was translated into thinly cut cheap noodles that were put to various broths in Japan. This was mainly done during the World Wars when many people were struggling just to get by. But because of this, Ramen’s popularity steadily grew, making it into the delicious dish we know and love today.

The instant part of Ramen though didn’t show up until around the eighties/nineties when, you guessed it, anime started taking off and Ramen even started to get cartoon mascots! But what makes the Instant Ramen that a lot of us are familiar with popular—aside from its obvious advertisement in many of the shows we love, Instant Ramen is a perfect food to have when disaster strikes. For example natural disasters. If your power were to go out or heck if you found yourself lost somewhere with not much aside from some Instant Ramen and a water bottle, you have yourself a food supply! That’s also a major reason why college students, such as myself covet the delicious noodle dish. It’s easy to get a hold of and even easier to make! It works beautifully when you’re on a budget or if you just need some awesome food to binge-watch anime with.

I know some of my favorite flavors are more than likely the Beef, Soy Sauce, or Shrimp. Or if I’m lucky enough to have Ramen at a restaurant I will always get it in the Udon broth. Just something about the flavors of all of these different Ramen is just so satisfying.

All in all, in my opinion, you just can’t go wrong with an amazing bowl of ramen. Whether it be from a restaurant or just an instant package. Ramen is amazing.

Well, that’s all for this Fangirl Favorite! I hope you guys enjoyed it! Stay tuned for the next article!
