Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 11: NO!

NOTE: This whole post was due to lack of memory on my part. I do not take it back though!

I had been waiting for this arc to be made into episodes. Waiting and waiting. I mean, it’s not really an arc, let’s call it, the Rush Valley Segment. Whatever. I love Rush Valley. It was probably one of my favorite parts of the manga. But seriously. This was a bungle and I am angry.


I understand fully that anime adaptations don’t generally copy the manga exact. That’s fine, and I accept it. I mean, it would be kind of boring if they were exactly the same, you know? But still, they skipped over so much in this episode that it annoyed me greatly. The first being the Automail arm wrestling. That was awesome! WTF!? WHY DID I NOT SEE AUTOMAIL ARM WRETSLING!? WTFWTF!?

This is NOT Automail Arm-Wrestling. This is BULLSHIT.

This is NOT Automail Arm-Wrestling. This is BULLSHIT.

Secondly, in the manga, Ed chased Paninya (which is a really cool name btw) all over town, breaking things and building up a debt. It was arguably one of the best chase scenes ever made in history ever. In the anime they settled for a cheap scene near the bridge. Really?

I mean, honestly, they never even stayed in Rush Town for that long. I didn’t see any of the sites, barely any automail. I WAS EXPPECTING A WHOLE EPISODE OF AUTOMAIL! I FEEL RIPPED OFF! I LOVE THE AUTOMAIL! I’m really pissed off. I was so excited for this episode. I was literally waiting the whole season for this episode. I might drop this piece of shit show. (complete and utter lie).

And this is why I don’t read manga. Had I never read the manga, I would not have had anything too be disappointed about. They need to slow this series down, they’re speeding through everything. It’s like they’re trying to squeeze the entire manga into a 24 episode anime. At this point I’m going to shut up, because otherwise I’m just going to keep repeating my disappointment of this episode.

Also, was this whole thing in the original anime? I can’t remember if it was or wasn’t. I don’t think it was, but if it was, and you know the episode, please tell me so I can watch it and not be as angry. Thank you, goodbye.

  1. Yeah this episode was compressed even compared to the manga… they glossed over the chase and went to focus on the birth scene instead. I think there’s some significance later with the birth scene, but yeah the chase and lack of arm wrestling was disappointing.

    In the old anime, Rush Valley was episode 26. I distinctively remember that there was automail arm wrestling.

    • I watched that episode just now. It was 50000 times better, of course, now I’m nearly as disappointed. I still am though, I really love that chase scene, and I would’ve liked to see it again. Whatever, it’s not that big of a deal, and I’m just really dumb.

  2. You read comic books of shows. You are gay. It’s much better to create a site like mine (which was a complete copy of your site), that no one cares about or looks at.

    • The comic books come first. The shows are of the comic books. Anymore shitty comments like that and I’m just going to delete you from this entire website because I’m a fucking mean bastard.
