i believe the green haired dude with a sword in his mouth is what puts people off.
Man you guys are nuts. Zoro (the green haired guy) is the fuckin shit. He kicks so much ass its ridiculous!
Ive avoided it for a long time due to the hype but just today I finally got my hands on a copy of full metal alchemist and.. well.. I must say that was an.. incredibly enjoyable first episode for what it's worth.. going to zerg the series over the next few days imo..
Ehhh, dont base watching something on hype. I don't get why people hate on a series because people praise it and give it hype. Hype only works if you fall into it. Just watch a series with an open mind and don't listen to all the ridiculous hype floating around and you will probably enjoy it a hell of a lot more. I think thats why knoxer hates Haruhi so much. It didn't live up to the hype he fell into.
So lesson for today. Hype = bad = don't listen to it.
