On this episode: @TooMannyMen @oluwaponz @estrella8_

And listening watching Te episode,thirty seven of the foreys Lik ca demo, podcast Iwas still a today, I am joinedby Porla you and money hello. So this is topic we are going to bediscussing and talking about think quite a popular onteday, his for metal,alchemists and brotherhood so make that distinction. We also want Brotherhoodtoday and not the original, I'm just kind of pulng out some of the reallycool, thengs and plocks that we enjoyed watching Pobaly, recently watched it and mony. Iwatched it years and years ago, so it's Goinna be a great offsoet for us tokind of this broin store and just foos talkabout from difference, perspectives and ive hot some of the things that we'veenjoyed. But as we do every week we have two news topics that we like toquickly go ov and discuss. So I get straight into it. First off ehave an article here from ign whichsates that Avatar, the Mave asseto the avengers and game as Highas grossigmovie after rerelease, so advertise what to re, take the tite of highestgrossing Anima of all time, thanks to its returned to tiny Munin theatersthis weekend. So for almost ten years, James Cameron's movie was a highestgessing film until avengers was releate in two thousad and nineteen, which overtook Advataz by two point:Seven HIVEE sats Monbur, it's just Stil Lov Wer, Los a billions lader billionsyeah. It was a, I think, Ye aread. It wasn't that much that end game actuallybecame Y higs grawsom form by but yeah. I said because ' Iredire, becausethey're trying to get Chinese film goes to go back to mcinema again, so they decide to rerelease Abatonas pilms in cinemas. Sothat way to get, as I said, to get people back into the the cinemasfollowing the pandemic and because of that advertising ot overtake go back to be in top hig gross highestcos an filmf all time again, but I don't think any Disney. Don't carebecause Dizzy owns both now. So that's theres mo of money in the Bak forDisney is the olwy tey Sol these tha. Now Lso Co, Hel, Ma Yeah dise onEverythin, so he's just me: Mony T bbut Disney. They got like six of the topten highest quosom films, all the time own by Disney, which isn't mad it'sgreedy, it's actually very much but yeah they don't Minde, but yeahtheijust. Trying to you know, post by pandemic gets make son kind of normality andthey thought we had avsidbe quite well in China originally so yeah, and Iwonder why, because yeah, I think, we've all watched the movie and justremembering the clow and what it was all about. I don't think there wasanything standard yeah exciting about I other than the DGIL special effects,which were quite cool at the time. Yeah like comparison to Ta just end game. Questioni agree with you days.Advertise was not the plot. Wasn't anything special. I think the onlything about was really the special fix. That's a AK. She said ats a time theywere actually just my well. I wouldh've been saying: Maybe Blue People Way, butyeah thers the special effects of them main attraction, the film so yeah.That's the only thing about it, so fart from that. Maybe it was an interesting frung tobring about, but yeah like I said, Disney eating anyway, so they don'tcare. I think that's why all literally boelsout to its just- I guess the locket fi around it being one of the first tdfilms to come out and probably the mot enjoy wile, be the FEMAL Comeot,let own it just it just added to to it.INFOMINE poin for people to you have to go and watch it. I don't necessarily care for the film,but I understand why it co to the level I got to yeah makes sense. Ex Gaming es EA sports is investigatingwether feed for ultimate team cards ore being sold illegally by employees. Theandegation which skinews is not subsetiated, are causing concern amongfeer of to altar up and speak Oltome for Ote fiteen players, so resit Gamers, I basy this is let thepeople know this is me this a o yeah. So this is todo ea of just Bein is been been a big trouble for a while mand ar, becausethis is all to go back to thei micro, drivesaction loot boxes a lot of a lotof countries lows. I think the Netherlands Bellgum Iem what othercouncres, but they banned loo boxes at I people ultimate team doesn't is notin those countries because its essentially leav box, because thit'strying to say it's basic gambling, which I agree with it, is literallygambling, but it's so easy, accessible to younger kids, etc. There's beenmoltle stories, you know I've seen...

...through as BCY Etceta parents, not notnot realizing or kids blowing hundreds, maybe even thousands of pounds of the parents money trying toget, for example, like therewas onee story of one. These kids wanted to get Le Messy the mystry carerfe for ultimate TM, anspent ithin over a thousand ons of their parents money or something likethat. Yeah trying to get yeah trying to get len, but I alsoget messy WUS is soso low. But I said this gambling is essentially gamder that eas just beenthrowing left rights an around and people. You know ight finalthegovernment ovisal up even the UK's Whyis, not you orse to it becausethey've, I think TGAM. I can't remember Ha secret what section he governmansaid it, but they said they have to look into this and and mark luboxes gambling, especiallyobviosly. Don't know what arlet boxes. Ooboxes is basically AI. F, explain it you get you pay a bit of money, usuallyand you you get a chance of getting. For example, a rare item wor somethingdepind on the game, but it's it could E it's a random ite am me, get could berare could be common, but you don't know it's just playing a game of chance.You pay some money to try and then you get an IM and then dependon. What I iscould be. AROUN ND could be com. That said, but it's similar it is similar togambling in the ways in laks. Not Machines is rot machines exactly likethat Yeah Sim as a slot machines putting in just playing by chance butbecause, like companies are EA ECCEPTA, they usually try and to say it's notgambling, they like to call it. SURPRISE, mechanics! You know, likeinthe surprise, that's what they try to do and e. When the UK goverimgovernment with question the Ye regard, Lhess Tats, what the they called itsurprise, mechanics and compaed it to Kinde, surprise but yeah. Now it's notlikeing the surprise, this more but yeah as example. So, with this storyhere, some eeaemployes have been sellingultimate team cords ousuall have to spend thousands, maybe tens ofthousands maybe to get some of these rare cards. Ithin thes, ae cool cardsor digital pads, digital, the digital yeah, the digitalso. I think they somehow I'mnot sure I didn't read the fully how they m give the person the cards anyway,but yeah they've been maybe for a backdoor or something like that, but these employees have been. You knowsaying for like give me like one back five. You know I'm Faus a PI UNGEmaybet. I can get me like this rare icon card, for example, maybe likeArenaldo Ilike or NAM Renaldo card whe should probably have to spend ire,because the also getting these cars are like they sai yeah gives the odder likeone percent Bu, we don't know exactly Har, but now on Persen it is but it'sYo. This is my because they're, not even physical cards. It's ultimate T,like I said it's like gamber. That's the problem is like in it. It'sliterally like gambling and people hooked on on these Games like these micretansaction and chances, because these things give you bit chances. You knowon fee Pol mateame. I Lo replay ultimate team anyway, but the thes go good way to help in onthere. I think, but the fact that this has happeneing employes are been doingthis to make profit. It's GOINTA Land E in even more hotwater anyway, I'v Goten. This hole box issue anyway. So then, our eas nowinvestigating, which employs me have done this and you know, will see whathappens, but the bay loop boxes get banned in this country leveter anyway,I say because the Gameing injustry aint going to regulate them so now, you'regonna have to let someone is going to do t yeah the gain industry or doitthan someone else is going to do it and they weren't like it. So tough, that's what I sannew Iti, soyeah, Soi resident gaming course whon. It hasspoken e'r not here for N, FO and interestingjust to see like how the story develops. So if it is on our news desk for nextweek or when we come back o whenever that is sh, discuss that again,thanksoay cool course so I'Nto the maintopic atordobut. Yes,as we stat at the start, we had to talk about four metal, alchemists, stuff,ohead anima. So obviously to start off this conversation e. We great te hear what were your, what were your key takeaways on theeneme and haven't watched it do? Why do you agree or disagree thatit's one of the best? So that's let me say that again, what will your key takeaway? Fometar, a series, a D youlaw see or a greodisegree afwits, because Stile Don' the best animaes obviousl ad, so...

...yeah. I completely agrees on Thevisson News.This time I really enjoyed fora. MITAL alchemist themes, wise the key poits I can takeaway. I think why I liked it as well. You saw even the side characters. Yousaw a lot to them. You saw a lot of personalities. I think all thecharacters had personated them. Actually, the plot. I thought it was actuallyagreat. I enjoyed the plot as well the whole and I think the whole thingof Alchemy as well, and you know the whole occrivent exchange law, formal, alchemist, I'. I really reallyenjoyed. I did gend up because I started watching it. Then I stoppe fora bit and I got into it again. I think I start o start watching it like coughfew weeks ago again and then I just end up vinging it, because I last two parts I just ended up w th cookedand wanted to see the end of this and see where our it goes. But I do likethe whole femane plots of it. You do see it does kind of mirror a bit ofthings of real life as well. Our humans can the worst of humans, and also Isaey the best as well. You can see with us also theconspiracies behind the Senes of the government in the in former COP el. Isay the government, the military government whereyou, I t coll it but other keypoints. So I did't I feelt. Icame close for a lot of characters. Actually I came to like someof the aMonkylaci like greed, I actually quite like Greev, because in the end, greenyeah, I think I did like greed, for example him he just really wantedin the end evaned ere think, but everything I think you just wantedfriends. That was really what you said. He ws Wen your friends. That was the that was a great part of O.I even call him SI just col a father yeah, but yeah gre just wanted friends. Even envy justwas, I think, my it was jealous of the bonds of outr people. It was a scene the way I think the someof the Hamongees seeand, how they kind of came to torns of some things as well.You know, you know ther villains, you know some of the they weren actually togood villains, and you saw that they they had more to them actually thanjustactually when you bing it up, because alheae had the issues you kindof just see after one o defeated like all thay isse, I kind of just tell it over. Bur is like leve come to terms of you know asshe said it. What was yeah actually seeking and also yeah, and also thoseas well it what they come to terms ofvent, it kind of mirrors what theirnames are. Like envy. You know he was envying onces. I said greed wened, youknow just wantod Wen hir friends. That was his great. I remember how I know Los got K am diedand fighting Mustang Bu, trying to remember es what doe she want. What she really aHar. Remember eady, forgotten that one, but even pride, you see him as a going backinto a little FEETA, more prides n at then. Anyway, you still thebout yeah.He came close with Mustans wife Basic, no, not Musstan, so Youre, Bradley's,wife, basically so wher as a mother Indean,but no formal acchomistis. I completely agree ith, you guys, and I don't knowwhy didn't want you. So No it's amazing. It was actally Fatasdi. I like thenever yes pony Touchon was I regards to hod goodpoint. Characters were for the whole o formal alchemist, and I think that's istestimony to Temandaca. If I've been answering erome epithetshe, he don'tgree work in being able to have such a wold written cose to tohave watched the story. I guess,because not only you enjoy the story of a fonds and an l, roperser yeah youalsot have most and Yousaf the history of of Baba and and and Orextead, andyou also have the history of a scar, an his people, but these ASE, so manydifferent plot lines within foro building series is different. ANL Allcome together, feiry well and and she's left it in a way where it can easily bemore explored. We're only Lookingi, a one country, essentially one one issue,and yet he whole ful, ell, alchovist and so yo can be expoled forever. I'mnot saying that it should sometimes leave good things. W with I withar Likhappy that I've got a setifying conclusion or story which he canactually see being able to be progressed and e hed, often exactly,and just on that point Laly an mention at this ending, I'm not sure if youboth have watched the original fa series, because what we'r talk about nthis epsages butits abaerhead, a Wat Ilov resode and the rigin FMA. Yes,only because somebody told me that you...

...tart watching thim watch poo it. So Ididk in the level of back he had a good friend Yo had a goodfriend there, Becusei watch it tall the end igot there and I'll just like whatis going on like this is what kind of Endin is this and I wasn't happy, butthen I lik alet that proeby had hat been made before the ending of the actual Manga, which is. Why did wehave an Endof that made sense when I did't g head a WAC NEMBERHERD? I was Iall right, I'm more Stati saded this ending, but it is. It was interestingjust to see th the hell. You know when Animae Tudios are just given the threerages just do whatever haw te take into their own hands. Obviously I thinkwould all agree that probabeit is the one to go. Watch whatever animation style differensslightly. I think it's still, I'm not sure I fiasmade by the same aimaton Yo dont. I have to check, but definitely forlistening brotherhood over the originalfoshow yeah, it's Profe to Mazand, as I saidthat many was peoere saying before the how all the character are flashed out.So well and the even its only sic to for episodes, but so much happens. Yousee in Thetho sixty four episodes, and so many plots that come to get is sowell written. They have a said, molcal plot thatcomes him to fight the final big plots and done well as to be shown acrosssixty four episodes. Ataste Ganyeu, ARS Wel, I said FIB was a good villain. I thought F.Fibe was a very good villain, yeah that, because you see you go back into hishistory as well him him and Hofemheim their connection gets revealed becauseI was like remember what Wen is first watching and I sowt the and I foll thatWeiht is that their Dhat. I was thinking Bra, wait what, but then itwasn't and thewas fit M hows tit and then they flesh, and then you go intothe history of. Is it Zoxes Wat's o a cant ponance the ancient sit seene youfind whel we find out off. Ohimd is a centuryes old and basically mortal basically the father, the first anfathers, the first Mongulus who was made from poand blood, but at the time as well ofhim, I was actually just a slave and he's learning more. You learn about thehistory together, what came to be hat and how they became immortal, wit, Sech,and then you learn and also the plots where you see, because I think, even atthe beginning, the first episode you see that the Eli brobers trying to stop an nowwas he n alchemist that guy can't remember yeah. It was a thealchemistyeah, as Te State alchemist trying to stop him, then I realizeing that guywas actually not even the villain after when you get to the all. I knowthat guy was even the villain at Teit t at all. You was trying to ht because heknew what he knew he knew and then you 'll sil us by you know good old, her Bradley. I was nice to see I enjoyed howeverything developed and the plot how it all thickan how they came across thegovernment. Conspiracy etct, I realizein H, EV, so many people behindit ire thinking the how they'e going to cut covercom this, because there's somany higher up so involved how hey going to Mto kids just like it was justtwo kids, but those kids are tonacious. I goll give them that as well. Yeah like Wantto Sop, it uphad a a say, knowing what you know now andyou've watch the series. You've picked up other themes, what type of so noithe type of animator FA brother is what type of anime what hould you think thiswould be best. seted. Fourth example like if you are to recommend it F. forexample, Ifhin isn'tasers il just recommend to just anyone. So I guess myquestion is: What time don't know what Di you think this is best suited for that's a good question. I don't evenknow because I'm trying to think because hatfirst oin to sa, I feel that is actually good. Animebo want to getInton, O Metowatch, actually, as GOINGTO say that like, if you want tostart watching eneme, I so good first one to watch, because it's only likeit's only sixty four episodes and the episodes are like onter half an houreach. So it's an amazing H. I think I' A now. A few PEOPLEHAV started watchinganmy day. That's the first hine they chose an the, I think, is a great oneto pick off from pick up from, but the Pirst kind of person, enemy,which I'd see I'd say, is anyone that likes a goodstory, driven anime that likes enemies that may goand deep into thehum. You know into moreful philosophical themes: Tyeah such as you know, life and there forQiment exchange like, like, I said, the the best andthe worst of human beings,...

...yeah Asu, G, yeah and Yeu want the Sainthings you can't just you ha just a gloss over those things. I feel thatyou have to be able to be that so type of watcher at all pick those out, so Igre, O l Si got you cut you up. My Name Yeah Mwhatpn Watn earlier, I think, wasabout the port legs that he was mentioning a d and how, at thebeginning of the fist episode O in the first episode of Forma AlchomistsCovherdit, we get them Ain. AFORMER state, alchemist, Eve, a story. We see me de get likeit's a very shuw. Sixty for episode, an we see me get different villains allthe time, but it's not it's not indorance to the story. It's a cosly pogresses it so aper. Membercorrectly, we obviously get get that forme stay. Autemioa, Ste apmist on thedeals with the ECES in the first episode then eventually end up going tosome random town with with the priest event. That's what we Anda about theseven ee sings, there's a whole problime there enten we get over plotNin with the preat show ta up Te Grt. Suone oe point is that evennuofo getsco up. One moe point is that we don't even get this many villains insome long, vunning anema. We don't get this many good. We them well writtenvillancs, notwel enemies. Every single villing that we come across was therefor the purpose of burboring the plot and and making the prot make sense, yeahaving obstacles for protegonist come across without making it what makingtoo much of a big deal of it. I guess sometimes like we don't need a big bad.Every single episode yeah in we don't need e confusion of theprotaglist Versu, the villain of the OP, to be one massive world breaking fightso yeas, sometimes sometimes the village is Gettin, arrested all against itis enough, so yeah so back to follywl,saying regards to the potliy in the villains that they she risks so well interms of e putting together and making sure that it makes sense for the storyyeah. I agree and I think the level just on your point lan about the thevillages, teing them not having to do like grand stuff. Each time I think,was very much. You know very much put in place there to help develop Edan L,because when you see them in origin, L I's just ther they're, very desperate,ther, offhens whar. They think they absotedly they're all fons. They lofttheir mom, so just willing to do any and everything to kind of get to theoriginal goal so having those particular biees codor put into it. Theclot just helps them it just character, luilding, so iagree on o plan yeah. I agree everthion, you guys Avesaid there as like ye just yeah the villas there, just helping them car asYe said character building, because you see how the Goals Tho remain the same, but theychange well the way they go about. It changes over the course of the story,because at first irl try ING, you know, get a phomospher stone, so they can gethe original bodies back then they started stopp living more and more uponthe truth. Secha like how the stones are created and then the learning aboutyou know transmotation circles and yeah, and you see how and then I'llooking about Alchemistry as well. you see how the whole plot develips, as yousaid, and they just keep the growth the characters, keep going as you go alongand it was great e and actually read that alchemy is real.NSO, remember what I was reading it whatchis. I Wat Fas alchemy and I wastransmuntation and it's like really really old, like research and just yea it juste.Yes, Really O. I know Yeah I've, always Knowan alchomy as real buct. I rememberexactly how old it is, but alchemy yeah back in. I don't know how manyseventeen hundred sixteen hundred yeah, maybe yeah, probably a thousand oryears ago, yeah. That's probably when the you know, practic Hasno te Useo doful wafothe days like essentially before BC. Okay, S THATC,isn't it yeah? It would be BS. It was around those yeah thousands of yearsago Bes. You Know Me. There was medical alchemy etceea year, but yeah, no, I'm FORMOC, Alchemisism,Amazin, Tamo, H, Yo thing, thits, prazes more so anthin, I'mnogonna Coumany here before he forgets his playjust on the ateme stuff andobviously is fater a thousand years old. I think so with the progression ofScience. Obviously we don't use the world doesn't use alchemmiymore and if-and I fou lit one of the principales throughout Amo alchemist, like you o said that owe see the characters grow, Gro Bro, we also see we will see the principle ofFomal alchemists being the invention of...

...of ofscience and the GIWL designe andManhe a a G W wving society. So I not get a lot of flat about show Tucku edoplay on a be. I don't get for a Carter much but git. U To me about it.O Goit, but and at people at Shor take will tell you and be awful Farter, butI do appreciate his aguess philosophy and you appreciate careful Manne, Cil thesBo Tefande to is Dino comeryeahwanted to understand science, more and puth humankind to the brink of knowledge. I guess- and I think I think that's- that pin upthe whole story of fomer alchemist yeah stuff, I etward and an a Enou, an ouphones, an pushing sides to his break back Tra Todo, the Tabu of trying to betalking back to life Solin. He sinse Hese some thing that they shouldn't dowe get well, but the meain Vilin for the whole story. The only reason thathe existis, because he shows to get proses o to the character that we knownow as the truth and by usingtine to do that so that we got someone that showTacko who n in the most awful way one of the mortorfars you think of chaseyou science to to get. I guess in his own way, even though, is wrong tring toprogress and human cind. So what M my food is that the thing that why I enjoyshortupers, Hariter and and- and I guess what the the MENDICAR A tomake him represent- was the idea of pushing science forvher, but it's also Lii Etneceary, there's alsom limitationand things that you need to sacrifice for that to happen, which bolls down tothe the most important thing, the firstwore of alchemy, which is h. The law of equivalell exchange, the managit of he bag, Thi, mays, Bak, whichi, think tis ine really reallywell. So I do think that shortoptic is pretty much a really good character orTatwer you guy, for somebody to use as a Kay study, for you try to explain the Scory Offulmy alchemist avor me an isyou know, se Sa I do he I do he ecause Stshoe Tocker was a mad madman, but hewahe was obsessed with science bace. He was obsessive fervor in his knowledge,and you know research and stuff, but he's a madman. He waiss it to his doors unforgivin for,but I get exactly what you're saying there, because that's the Wat all itwas about for was just furvoring. His research trying, you know to improvewith you know, making Camerias Etceta I've got them, but Yeah Shakn, I'm SM Sisthe, poor girl, emySiter, Literaly becauseecause. I knew what I want to dog Google and whatepisode that thatthing happens. My sister isaid Ake Watchin Ha Hol wa fodget to SA episode. My sister calls into my room late, eight, a o'clock andniw its like. I believe it hic looks at me. Why did you do that? Wag Noe? Ask You guys, do you think th the Langaker drew inspiration fromHarry Potter when she incorporated the Plos Sten, because I fonho wonder thatobviously Po Losof, the studies on we can you, but it's so key Ias Lik I hadTodo. I don't think so thing Sa Iy do it. I don't know what you Ma Oseaebut again, when did PHILOOPE TomIbo. When did Harry Potter came out in Ni, wat, Hay, Portner, fluof, stone,Cayeah, an in hudred Nineto in a night is a show. T came up in the S and itFilin at Baes. I think the film came up two thousand two thousand and one maybeI think tepast em won the film came out, but the philosopher's stone book cameout and I think it was like ninet seven yeah non on seven. I think round thattime yeah maybe wrong, but yeah yeah bcause. The only reason why Idon't think so. I just think that Tha Manica has just a great understandingof history, especially European Istia, fom, from what I can tell from youBethe to be the enemy, and I think she probably drew hispeasion from the. I thinks that thirteen century Deffeinesso was somstuff that youknowbut, then I don't necessarily think is that is directfeeling to to her porter. I don't think she probably took IIS ot o thought that,because I remember reading I was lie: Oh St, a Ta. Let's then ie could dolike comparison to we hope butter. So that is what probabwhere I thoughtthere was. Perhaps I think theyll,...

...maybe asporation down the bound the waywhere she created the mango. I mean you never know it could be to befair because you know M, they get. Everyone gets inposed from differentthings from different me, YEA FIV lifeso. I wouldn'. I wouldn't be toosurprises. If she she did ov e, but yeah yeah. I don't know what else to say,Ias Ho to ask what any moments in the series where that kind of took a mammit tat stoodout to you, because I remember the moment where, as an Ourlean, that isime had lost herchild by tring to do exactly, as I yeahyeah that for me I was just likewell. This is actually really good moment because it not only showed thatferstonall kind of just showed that t e, the student and the teachers had kindof gone through similar kind of paths and Sim the steps so that' stoot outfor me, yeah, I get a gree Wi you on that onebecause it was they both saird. The tragedy is Secu because is en we didwant them, not to Everdo it, and you always when I first was Zom. Iwas thinking. Why is she always like? Maybe couhing YP blood? What's wrongwith it exactly and then you know when she found that they did een tring toBetake, and then they realized even Saly. She did as well, because she'smissing all gods and stuff, that's Mo T. I think I lovea momient that stood outfror ye s when must must ting at very Mus TinAshe shout is, you know, th. The speech was given Wen after huge cuses funerallike say the Hobmin. We exactly said something like the this rain. It's anice day for it to be Gren. Yeahpouys like it's, not Ralin, eny says Yos. Iis bentoly sat yeah its Ollin Yeah. That was an emotional moment matbecause wad yeah the rest on Pece US man, crest in pieace. You know whatsfunny about that. Like I thought it was a great moment and then we get redly who boad Dinne solibe isliterally shaken and all of us thinking that shit he's emotional to one of he.One of these collingues hat fassed away you en we laya find out that the reasonhe wuld say kin was was because Yus Doi was crying and he was fed up, wof itand he had to hold hitself back from Attackino Mo. Are You y? That was crazy?You know what Yougo that's a good point. That's a very thtod, oe c thats GD TAT is right Li,but it's a well. I forgot about that. What yeah valleys Ar Monster we no yeahRaly is over. I think the only thing yo showed like some clittle bit ofcompassion, fors, probably his wife but aboutn- that was small thatwas Youan.That was very small Y H, even though you're ot was very small, but I guys amonster who stop Ra ect dos, a really good character. Ra E was really a good yeah. I agreetofar as HEU said all of it. I don't. I can't think of a a bad character. TalThinking about, I can't really think of a Boud character in Formil brotherd.Can anyone, because I can't really sin think of character that I did feel like there were somecharacters in the series that e were introduced? I kino Rof byameintroduceiit. I then were introduce e, be ad much to overall Adama. So I believe there was acharacter called what's her name, but there were, I feel like there was.I think I jus, because that's the point. Many had made earler to say that wedon't the focus. Is it solely on Edan Idon't Ow, but you kind of get an insect. Some of theother characters that Min Ave fom part of that world. There were some CAS. Ifound that they just didnt reat ad much like they're overajeing, because at theend of the day and then alo the protecanist yeah, but it didn'tdistract from them having Ne then theyr ether as well, but it's just to saythat theyre, the bact I cin' remember them up my head. Just shows that I justhelt it they jus, didn't add anything to theseries fair enough for enough. You Know Wat you now you fair, but if you keep saying Althouginan othemain protagonist, but it was most, it was spread out the whole story not tofeature more ton, just them. Let the whole cast around and the whole thepeople around them their friends enemies. Awe should thetwill build ittogether to the EN plot, which yeah, even at the ITHOU. When Iwas watching like those, but I don't a couple episodes when thet the finalshow down te Farbass, we can wait. EUT, FAV, Pi off our SIKING ARD is Al. Thesouls are gone, the Suly Discan't be they must be able to rust, and then youknow I they. It was reversed as wiave alchemistry laughing the whole even is fieverything leading to that final show: almast good man. Even even you see thisthe brothers, the sacrifices, even our funds, gave me soul op. So sohis brothan get his arm back to defeat...

...for or except it was all good to s andthen just hot to get onto that as well. You mention in that obviously it's goot es my brotherhoeodand one of the things I also hor earn is tbut. That is such a keyt thing forme, just Ta Brotherhood and I've never seen like when I think about sibling botons in nacs. I don't thinkthere's any other kind of strong symbom Bor like dant hours and other serieslike that Dou lats agree. I don't to mine. That is that strong, I'mtrying to think- and I can't really think of yeah- can re Tin, O eter.That's Teyouin, like geneal, Lov, fat, yeah, t brothers yeah. I can't think that one youseeyeah, I really can't think of them, because you saw thei love that tythosetwo had for trouble all the way throughout on how they were willing todo for each other. You see, eact, even thatthere was even moments you thinbecause you saw alphons even I think for one of the another there wasanother woat d. You even call it hell becausethere's another emember back when I think was the butcher's name windeb. I can't remember his name, buthe tried to make emaide olrphons think that he may not be actually real orsomething like that or company O for Yeah Yeah, and that that you see theconflict that Bos had at times because of tons fougt, you wasn't real and justhad in Ted and Ed, you know and then Remer we had to slap some Sensein, ther it'Sa Fun to say it Doang, you know,and then you see they may have a fo up and aylways ave each other they'll doanything for each other, eds main goals just to get his brother's body buckyeah to Themenga car, but adding that forbecause I do appreciate having see conflict between people that care aboutThavel, because it's not living everyhit's, abot everyday rosy. Yeah is showing conflict. EFECIALLY haperfor the story, an that adds to the bund that they have, especially what theconclict is over. That's Orr, when you but say somethingtnon as agree. I agree with you there. I was just really going because at theend as well, it even just gives up you know notbeing able to use Ou alchemy every again, which of Ay didn'tcare about wet, just what I mean as he gave that up. So he could get hisbrother back. His brother's body back E, like I sai in Togot venithing, to helpand he DEP fulfilled his brobber. His promise to get his brother's body back-and I was never goingal hat, which is he saw, is as well Othos ye saw. Themain put was just it was stopping farter, it really was. They did come up,get the original goal. Getting this broken worty back for just the shootfrom the GETGO. So it was nice to see. But, as you said, not on things O Rosi, I like to seethey're going to be things where they fall out have conflicts because youknow sitnens, don't now foms te Ra Fosiditit,we you know o may lot be Simisan, maybe times you fal te other things and stuff.But you always, you know, there's still love there and yeah. It was just niceto have that, keep going. They had that fenkeep hotle going broers keeping outfor each other, they may fall out, but they always do anything to help eachother yeahthatthat scene with with Ed and and the truth where he saysthat he's willing to give up his alchemy Orto get his rothers buddy backwit, kind of pullor opposite to whatfather, had the conversation withThetruth, so yeah, yes, you're right because yeah, I remember Thak the truthsaid you because of my commen witd, the Trop lats. You can sin O cu, can'tRemer the Truser Par Rememberoa Batin, but I justremember the whole thing was that fave was basically like. I haven't donenothing wrong. I just wanted to be more knowledge and just learn more about theworld and and then the chief o set up Alon the lines that and that's that'sthat's pee much. Your issue, like, instead of Ousuallto, be satisfied withbeing a youn being you just get trying to get more while wi'e, while Wi'vh weEid, he was like I'm willing to give up Alchemy I wint to give up myunderstanding of of the world and the Chieth was left. That's a right answer.Yeah t a that's the right answer and then also, if you run back in the firstfew episodes when Ed does travel at Edin Elton to that country. To so to find out aboutthe full of es philosopher stone that the Preso Jesun and he has he- had somedialogue talkig about a quirement abort, what they dilig from so polowmi besabout a person that learns her to fly and and instead of being contact withflying within wivin his pace. He decides to Playgo Er to the gods andtalkn about Wayosfnec t close to the sun in the wing, because the winds aremade of wax and they they burnt and they felt his death yeah and that'sexactly what happens to o father. He literally futue close o The Sun in Yeunderstand is knowledge of the world.

When I shouldn't have even that's whatthat's, what essentially caused his Defan gest, where wherther eactyi doappreciate how it turns it, bcames wher wih back around tes, sixty yeah, itcomes round a full circle. You're right, I actually fully agree with you there.It does all come around full circle. You sort, as you said, the poleopposites with fither and your bed, ed being a riots and Fav Agaiin, Dr FaBerget. Well getting draginis despair, it's absolute despair by the truth, soyeah no theres, I like how it all comes Tou circles. You saw all the differentdevelopments of plots, all the site sideplots that littte give it for thewhole story to Comefol Circle, so yeah, and so I know that got fiftyn minuteskind of Puling Os got to go, but I thought we could kind of end this bybriefly giving our opinions on some of ther life. Lessons. Bat are kind of getto be puled for Min for the for metal, apolist thes ten. I wouldn't read itllten, but there's a few that I wanted to kind of get your opinions on. So readthem out. So one of the life lessons of for Methal Alchemists Botherhood, isbat. There's nothing wrong with being greedy, so in life, hi guess it depends on you Bein theRedio Bou yeah, I think wit. Gree te shows that he wasas greedy in egors to like he wanted to be like pulited earlier is gointed tohave more friends. Fo, that's Ome, to of Reed En Yve, been able to have addmore friends, more more friends, Levin a Ereto, but when you greed is angre an harminother people, ten, that's a different conversation that ill be here yeah. Iagree with many ther. Thefeit's all depends on the what kind of greed ifit's wheres like was an haresaid to other people of stuff around you, thenI wouldn't say that's a good thing: it ithats Defutobvios, the integree is notgood, but if it's like it doesn't cause harmand things likemaybe example, I'm trying to think of a SIP things o being too greedy about I'mtrying to think of something toUsean the example. But not I ov te head, but yea greeds on was just friends. Hewant to just won't. Have my friends aatons? He just wanted mat. That was it,which is fine, which is fine yeah. So just it all depends it's allthe it's the context of it really yeah. I agree with you guys C. Next, one isthere's no such thing as a painless lesson. You KNOTHESITNA one W. I think there are painless lists, but I getwhat the I Geti Sem. Some lessons are definitely paid for somewhat. I don'tthink all lessons are OPA as much all hat the same. I don't think a Yeif,they hurt the same. I don't think I think there are lessons that I've peenthis, but I kind o e way here, but I think I'm Ififty on it. I mean I'm very SISTYO STILLN that one gue in relation to all bout archomis. Ithink it's more to Vio. I thin. I think I guess this is s wos down to the the Lor of he gool of in exchange thatI you want a listen. You have to give up a upsod if e Gos toi guess, I guessto give me some wit- might be perceived as as painful regardless as mool is.But this is just in context of one next statement is, which is what Iagree with both FA context and jusral life is hatred and Violente only bread,more hatred andviolence, yes, so the example hit is actually referencein the list is the kind of relation to scar, yeah he's very muchdriven by hating he lis, because of him needing to to take a vengeance for the survivorsof hi people O it goes around. He just. He says most of the steries that shesjust really angry io lie everyone yea, but it makes use in the contect of Hostory, but also in the context of the roalworld. I do agree with that as well. I think it takes time to build up hatrenviolence and it can kind of kind of have a riffl effect for other things aswell yeah. I do agree with you thergh onHach Ou to vice preteachers, Abit, so Yhou Scol wit scort as well, becauseyeah you saw I' my kinderley his bubbles killed in thisclown. He was then treated by you know:whenhes parents and killed them in binder age and then also you know,winbry was ther trying to was going to kill him going to shoot him, but thatwas basically its right. There, Hachan Bi violence, breteached and vilence. othen remember. He chose not to she chose to kill him and then that kind ofscart end up a men. Sheyou know he gave up his heached and by himselfas well yeah tire...

...ithink exampe, because again, like thehate to Viluce pesnall put in the MISSAG, because ees hat the country forthat particular country for what they did and n he never use hat the alchomy.Because of that they are Coan, be come Rom, thet country that Cetificalgodacome, comffor the country and incager towards them. WEREL letting use it. Butwhile he was firing branly, he literally gave up the Hatrit. Yes, forthe country and he's aand ended up using that councres alchemy thateventually saved its is Lefe and Hewas only able to do that because he gave uphis ated toward who was the country, and I guess, is in on way he repentinvented by by doing so. So I think that's a Lott example. Soth ery tin isEtsdo Yis. I love it the P and then last sones on this list Iwun't read: The molit is ten this one. I think we will all agree that nothingequals the value of human life. So that's a descrition that came in issays the ALRI graters had to learn this. The learn this on the hardway. Afterattempting to bring their mother back to life, Edand Ou, R foced to pay forHARS shoe nothing equals by the oe human soul, yeah Agreea, nothing does yes, it's true,nothing equals the human life. Human soul is true. The lives Ti really should be priceless.That's way is, I think most people should really think that byno de in as well that wish it was that simple. But it's not S, not e, not that simple, as you cansee, you've seen one of it free everyday. You see it every day. FOMALLalchemist shows it and you see every day as well kind of Las Mirro life asit is right. It does Miror real life as well that that really should be lessen thateveryone should follow, but it's not and its te and it's some forchesterrible, like I sain we've seen it throughout we've, seen that we can namevarious ombls we've had even fhoug the lant last year to knowas well. We've had you know: Black Live Marcaus. I fom Jo murders in the US, but you know police provitality, even here as eworld. This and you see it all ofve Social Meja as well. Human life should be V, should be aiit,no o to see that way. Yea Yeah Youeehave thintoul be Brice, a andithink again in the contents for M alchemist iperfectly portrayed ou thefact that IOU anand also easma attempt to bringback somebody from the dead using alchemy but attempted to use the Lotle Convelat Xchange, but doesn'twork because there's no equal, voolence, O you in being and on't know boutincident that happens before Mo Alchemistis when, as in o a comin withthe Gol but end up, seeing somebody give birth and on see to see the childthere and They'e, both amazed and and the Alto rel that I think they realizein yes. I remember that Yeah Thatis, something that we as alchemistsnever do. discreate a love, a human being o bring o bring with Humi mebeback from the dead oorate, something to livein that just cleanly shows thatthere is no equivalent exchange for another life. Yeah theres Ar my question. I like thatManagei like that as well. You doyou, remember more than you thinkyou did gues. I go any last points al. We start cosing offthat side becaus. I Ha pick of anything else and just so o iprobablyi probablywill end up rewatching formial alchemist brohood again, you knowbecause I really enjoyed it. GTTO make it yearly. We watch like,maybe that you know moing iteeally, Rea Wachis, it's not even too mcit's, notoven, ctime consume either so, like I said, sixty four ssodes under half anhour, each that's not really time comsum mot can consuming up at all justhopeuly its K. Netfix still has it on keeps it on, because I know that I oey watched aichampion every year, thirs only Nike twenty six episodes, and I just wistFreia Week but II even do different tooings. That's it first fo t two hours.If you want to break it down, that's tirty the hours, that's what six feenfilms, Pi Films, O n. He can run trou that Te Digiali. If I really watch FNA, I'mgoing to have to really pay attention because I'll go NTO, then I snow fitsomeris. I'm Goinna have to think that hard its just like. Oh, this is ky on.I Ge a cause. There's a lot offoutin to her. Exactlyexactly. There's a lot of fought and you can do a lot of analyss analysisthrough, like you said, the different plot, fiends, the character,procrestion, the character building the world, the WORLL and plot building yeahthere's a lot. They can take healize...

...for there, but I'm still going to beI'm going to be watchin. Definitely maybe me I'll make it my ealy with verywatch but yeah know I really enjoyd it. I'mglad I've actually finally watched it.

Yes like if you like, deat, not iyeaha IV watchedoyeyeah. If you watch that then cause yes is a little bit like definot, Io,Setin, more help me out many, it's just a bit more. It's not as great it's not. I guess. The themes in cogeasa fairly different to Oma alchemists, where coges probablymore about freedom, Livan, revenge, Conti, yeah,cotroes, oll yeah, it's lightly different, but I feel likethe Weid that I it's really well. Reaen is really wer. Ou you like to go toTeluc is one of my favorite animations a bit weirdther because Wac we firstWAC. I almost ID finish Cousyer, I like. Why are they iys?
