Fangirliness ensues.

Hello everyone! I'm relatively new to the fandom and the obsession is still fresh... Anyhow, I scribbled a little essay the other day about FMA and someone suggested I share it here, and I always like a good discussion, so. ^__^

The essay is a bit wordy, but it's also relatively short. I apologize in advance for the rather random way it's written--it was really just stream-of-consciousness, and I just later on figured I might share it.

The first of two parts is a reflection on the various themes that FMA plays up. The second compares and contrasts the main characters in FMA with that of Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X to some), Himura Kenshin.

Some spoilerage throughout the anime and what manga there is so far. Spoilers for the RK series (manga/anime) and OVAs.

Hope you enjoy it! Feedback and further discussion very much welcome!

How DO you make a fake LJ-cut anyway?? Oh well.
