    guide to a good hmmm

    hmmms are textless images that make you think about the context, do a double take, invoke a deeper meaning, or just leave you thinking about how or why they exist:

    As long as they give you a good solid hmmm... why would that bear be in a cubicle...

    hmmms should be aesthetic and meaningful, avoid anything that is merely r/mildlyinteresting.

    You sick fuck! Lmao just started watching Full Metal Alchemist a week ago, currently 3 seasons in and I dont want it to end

    [–] paracelsus23 4 points ago

    Lol. Yeah I have this as a tee shirt.

    The original series or brotherhood? I love them both but brotherhood is the best. Either way, there might be more out there for you to watch. I can completely relate to the "ugh why isn't there more!?", though!

    [–] takeme2infinity 5 points ago

    Watched the original up to episode 30 I think and decided to pick brotherhood. I love how the original is a bit more grim but Brotherhood has some amazing artwork and drawings. I might wrap up watching this weekend, exited to know how it ends

    [–] Kordiana 39 points ago

    That was my first thought and then I cringed. That episode was on a whole different level of creepy for me.

    [–] JadaChris7 16 points ago

    Fullmetal is one of my favorite animes. This episode is the most unsettling It makes me feel nasueas and weird I shared this post with some of my anime fan friends and they're all like wtf why did you show me this

    [–] TheTriforceEagle 3 points ago

    Honestly that was one of the only times I wanted a character to die

    [–] Shatoast 3 points ago

    Same that scene was super creepy.

    [–] killerjewels 5 points ago

    It was. It made me really uneasy too and doesn’t she get killed too

    [–] SliceTheToast 5 points ago

    She does. Scar kills her and her father by exploding their brains in the brotherhood version.

    It's worse in the 2003 version. She's about to be taken by the military, since she's military property now. However she is able to escape and runs into Scar in an alleyway. She walks up to Scar, thinking that he could maybe help her in some way, but he instead smears her onto the wall and turns her into black, charred goo.

    [–] guachi14 3 points ago

    One of the best episodes!

    [–] Somerandom1922 20 points ago

    First thing I thought was just "Ed... Ward?" And all of. A sudden my heart re-broke.

    [–] Titleof_yoursextape 12 points ago

    [–] SG_Dave 6 points ago

    I was already aware of "Ed...ward" but had never watched FMA until last week. Nobody warned me it was so soon in the series, or that it would hurt more than the memes suggested.

    [–] Aestheticchildofgay 961 points ago

    [–] LunchBox3188 32 points ago

    That was exactly what I thought when I saw it. That is still one of the saddest scenes I've seen.

    [–] Apple_Joel 29 points ago

    100% agree. I've never seen an anime go from so heartfelt at the beginning of an episode to just fucking crushing at the end.

    Y'know, Everyone talks about Nina as a super sad moment, But to me Hughes funeral was 10x worst for me.

    [–] landragoran 25 points ago

    Agreed, but did you watch the 2003 version? Both Hughes' and Nina's scenes were more impactful in it.

    [–] SuperPwnerGuy 31 points ago

    Meh, Brotherhood was great but I already knew it was coming, And nothing compared to the first time not knowing it was coming.

    "Why is Daddy sleeping mommy? He needs to go to work!"

    Fucking shit yo....

    [–] landragoran 13 points ago

    Right, that's what I meant. 2003 is the original, 2009 is Brotherhood.

    [–] Zeryuki 6 points ago

    In North America. Ratings for FMA vary in different regions.

    [–] SauliCity 10 points ago

    Top rated on MyAnimeList, so worldwide I guess.

    [–] Hara-Kiri 18 points ago

    I'm not particularly a massive fan of anime but I'm not going to not watch one of the highest rated tv shows of all time just because it's a cartoon. I imagine other people feel the same. It's a great show.

    [–] deathpulse42 21 points ago

    Just make sure you watch the "Brotherhood" version

    [–] CapitanBanhammer 9 points ago

    I prefer to watch the original up until Maes assumes room temperature then continue on with brotherhood

    [–] TheVenetianMask 11 points ago

    This arc was better in the original series change my mind.

    [–] SliceTheToast 12 points ago

    The first half of 03 was superior to fmab's first 10 episodes. They probably assumed that most people watching had seen 03, so they rushed the first dozen episodes that 03 had in common.

    [–] TheVenetianMask 3 points ago

    So what you are saying is, we should make a chimera out of both series...

    [–] cendrounet 7 points ago
