My first experience with FMA was on a cold,summer night of 2009. I had stayed past my bedtime and was watching Adult Swim. I saw the first opening and thought it was funny cause it was fast and it sounded strange. Lil ignorant Mia was only a kindergartener. After that I would see glimpses of the episode, for example Sloth's death. I remember watching the Greed episode until I saw blood and he said "sex". I thought "Wow this is for adults." and then I changed the channel to Nickelodeon. In my opinion, Nick at Night sucked because I didn't get the jokes and George Lopez reminded me of a shitty classmate. Another anime I saw glimpses of was Inuyasha which didn't seem that interesting. When I was in the after school program we'd stay at this classroom. Each desk had a book and one of the desks had a sacred inuyasha manga. There was boobies and we 2nd graders were sooo fascinated. Too bad the teacher made the book disappear.
Wow I went off topic huh? Anyway I didn't see FMA anymore until 7th grade. In 7th grade I got a TV in my room (Super Lucky!) and it was connected to the magic box that had netflix and youtube. I willingly seeked the aminays. First I saw the 2009 one and then the 2003 one. Lots of people fight over which version was the best but I think they were both good in their own way. FMA brotherhood followed the manga and it had Ling and Greed. I would probably like the 2003 one more because the tone seemed darker, Envy was hawter, and the songs were better. I didn't like the ending though and Greed is very important so hmmmm.
