Yup, you said it but this ain’t Fullmetal Alchemist. It’s actually based on Hiromu Arakawa’s manga adaptation of the original novel, both of the same name. By the looks of it, it’s kinda promising to me. I love Arakawa’s artwork but I really wished they used Yoshitaka Amano’s from the novel instead because it looks so sick to me.
This isn’t the first time this series received an anime adaptation because about 2 decades ago, an OVA series was made but it was too rushed, they said it because I didn’t watch ’em. Actually, I’m a bit skeptical about this adaptation because… it’s Liden Films, the studio which made a mediocre Terraformars anime adaptation. The usage of animated 3D CGIs is real this time. But despite all that, the first episode met beyond my expectation. Thumbs up to that chase scene. Still, it’s so funny that most of the characters awfully represent some from FMA.
One more anime to be posted, also about throwbacks. So this season is dedicated to throwbacks to anime classics, including Gintama est. 2006.
*Psst, for the 1st time this is the 1000th posts. It’s been a long ride, huh…
