Quick post today. We just finished watching The Full Metal Alchemist. Brett discovered it on a sick day and fell in love with it, and it didn't take me long to fall in love, either. Right now I've gone back to the beginning, as I came into the storyline about 1/2 way through.
The characters are really well developed, and it has a great storyline. If you haven't seen it, I'd recommend checking it out. There are only 51 episodes and they run about 24 minutes each. (This is not to be confused with The Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood-- we thought this was a second season, but it is actually a retelling of the other series.)
Now we are looking for a show to watch as a family. Any suggestions?
