The creator of the epic, Fullmetal Alchemist and the masterpiece, Gin no Saji.

We hope there would be a 3rd season of Gin no Saji. :)

Seems like Arakawa sensei can tackle any genre with ease. Whether it's fantastical action and political intrigue ilike FMA or intimate coming-of-age in Silver Spoon, she always creates pure brilliance! She is a genius.

Arakawa Hiromu (cow) and Hideaki Sorachi (gorilla) are the best mangakas!

FMAB was really awesome. It never bored me rewatching it over and over again.
Gin no Saji manga is epic, too.

Although I've put FMAB on hold for quite a while I really enjoy FMA, but most of all thanks for Gin no Saji, a really beautiful series, can't wait for the sequel

Tengai | 10-15-13, 1:28 PM
I've only watched some episodes of FMA and FMAB when I was a kid but now I'm really excited to watch it properly :3

I love Gin no Saji it's really beautiful!!! I like the story the characters the theme the atmosphere it's very relaxing ^_^ I'll be waiting for the upcoming seasons :D

Oh my god. She's adapting a work by Yoshiki Tanaka, of Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

This is going to be brilliant.
