Full Metal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shambala

February 11, 2006

I just watched the Full Metal Alchemist movie. I can say it was a big disappointment. Its weakness lies in the ending and some inconsistencies along the way. I’m not a huge FMA fan and I don’t really know Japanese that well so I might have a bias opinion, but I wrote a summary and thoughts on this anyway…Please be advised that it is a spoiler, albeit, a pretty incomprehensible one.

To Heart 2 – 03

January 31, 2006

Continuing the girl-of-the-week schedule, we have Komaki! Unfortunately, much of the episode is about her getting mobbed and her progressive conquests. Atleast she has enough time to stop Yuuji and Takaki from having fun. Later on, she gets mobbed again, in class.This time, even Yuuji and Takaki join in the mobbing. However, she knows how to handle them. She captures and whips them into shape. She even thinks about barcoding them as POWs. Yuuji is scared off and leaves a man behind. Komaki finally makes Takaki her servant. Tama-nee is not pleased. So Takaki revolts and shoots Komaki from the other side of the wall.

A little bit of this? A little bit of that? Tamaki seems to enjoy it. Takaki, not so much. Neither does Yuuji. It gets worse with Konomi there. Yuuji can’t believe it. The next day, upon finding Takaki’s secret stash, Tamaki decides to take action. Konomi gets some too. Once again, Yuuji can’t believe it. Some time later, Yuuji and Takaki try to escape and run away together. They were unsuccessful. They try hiding. Again, no success. When school begins, they are depressed because Tamaki had transferred in.
