30 Day Anime Challenge – Day 14: An Anime That Never Gets Old
With so much anime coming out nowadays, it can feel like there is not enough time to watch an anime once, never mind multiple times. However, for today’s post, I’ll be talking about the anime that I have no problem watching over and over and over again.
There are actually a few different contestants for this slot. A lot of them are kids anime like Beyblade and Bakugan that are really formulaic and I could just leave on and sort of watch in the background. The one anime that I would want to actively pay attention to, though, is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
I’ve already seen Brotherhood a number of times, three to be exact, and I loved every second of every time I have watched it. Brotherhood, at least to me, is such an epic adventure and has such a great plot build up towards its final showdown that it can be watched any number of times and be enjoyable each time.
There are a number of reasons for this. One is the expansive world that is Amestris. The show knows when to set up certain plot threads and side stories in order to make the world feel as big as it can. Because there are so many details in FMAB world, a lot of the time it can feel like you missed something on your last watch through.
Another is honestly just Edward and Alphonse. There are a lot of interesting and extremely dynamic relationships between the characters in Fullmetal Alchemist, but none feels as incredibly powerful as the two main brothers who are the focal point of the show. Every time they go through something painful, it is always amazing to see the two support each other, whether it be through kind words or playful jokes.
In fact, I really want to show FMAB to my dad before I start college, so I’ll probably be rewatching it again soon.
