Don't Forget 3.OCT.10 -- FMA Day
« on: October 01, 2010, 05:48:33 pm »
Normally I am not one to post links to other sites but this is a rare circumstance.

Quote
Oct 3, 10 is an important day in Fullmetal Alchemist lore (10/3/11 in FMA: Brotherhood). This date, inscribed inside of Ed’s pocket watch as “Don’t Forget 3.Oct.10,” marks the moment when the Elric brothers began their journey by setting their childhood home ablaze, vowing to never turn back.

We want to officially recognize October 3 as FMA Day, giving fans of the series a day to reflect on what FMA means to them. Some may see it as a solemn day commemorating the trials faced by the Elrics in their quest to become whole again. Others will think of it as a celebration, honoring the brothers’ determination in the face of adversity. And others still will remember those rowdy Risembool Rangers. When did you first see Fullmetal Alchemist? What about FMA has inspired you? What has given you pause? How will you observe FMA Day?

So, Chan & I were watching FMA last night, which was technically today in the early morning.  She knows and understands the show a lot better than I do, so we talked about this thread and the details on why the house burned down (since I didn't get it).
I have a new blog!  It is an anime-themed discussion site.  Please check it out, and share your two cents!

In brotherhood, when winry breaks the watch open is 11, not 10 from what I saw. Origional is correct though.
