OtaKrew hits some new shows on Monday Night Forum

So, the OtaKrew is getting around to watching some new shows at Monday Night Forum.


With the fansub pimp, Cyphr, and I being BIG fans of Fullmetal Alchemist, the new FMA show was an obvious pick-up for Forum. "FMA: Broherhood" is, basically, a retelling of the FMA story but this time around it follows the manga much more closely than the first FMA anime did. Sure, the first FMA followed the manga up until it caught up to (and passed) the manga. Then the series did what most anime put in similar circumstances will do, make up new storylines. Gotta say that I am really digging this one, though, as we finally get to see new characters Lin and Mai (two of my favorites). Cannot wait until we get introduced to Major General Armstrong. (le sigh)We are currently on season two of this series and the OtaKrew are pleased...If you have a chance at picking this up on a fansub, I suggest you check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Another long-awaited (for me, anyway) series is "Inu Yasha: The Final Act".
MILD SPOILER ALERT
This anime is finishing up the story from manga number 36 through to the end of the story at manga 56. What is cool is that it picked up right were the first anime left off and, as someone who has been reading Inu Yasha religiously, I am very happy that what I have seen so far. Gotta love the fact that Sesshomaru is, currently, getting a lot of airtime as he has shown up in all three of the episodes that have been shown. Sadly, one of my favorite characters died in the second episode. Honestly, it brought a tear to my eye when I read first read it in the manga and I did get a little sniffy watching it on TV too.

And then there is "Tokyo Magnitude 8.0".
MILD SPOILER ALERT!!!
Wow. What a fantastic show this was. I say was because we have already seen all 11 episodes of this show and we (the OtaKrew) came away VERY impressed.
The setting is based on the prediction that Tokyo will be hit by a 7.0 magnitude (or higher) earthquake in the next 30 years. The story follows two young kids (Mirai and her little brother Yuki) who are caught up in an 8.0 magnatude earthquake in Tokyo and are trying to get back home.
Mirai and Yuki meet up with a young woman, Mari, who assists them in making their way through the devastated city.

Don't want to give anything away but, if any of us saw this show by ourselves, we would have cried like babies at the end. Think "Grave of the Fireflies" sad...

Anywho, after all this talk of sad (but good) anime, I need something to make me happy to finish off this post....I know....how about my favorite WWE diva....
