FMA bingingA little while ago, I decided it was time to delve into Fullmetal Alchemist. I know it was a mistake not to have seen it before! Don't yell at me! I had put it off for so long, but every time I mentioned it, people were telling me to watch it. Now that I am in that process, the question people ask me now is "Which one are you watching?"
