Fullmetal alchemist brotherhood
Partijama: Standing leaping dancing ovation, Razz?
Popo: (Doing all three) I’d add flying to that if I could, yahoooo!!
Lazlo: I can help with that if you like. Now just focus on that light over there and hold still (activating Twylle blaster).
Popo: Thank you, little buddy, but my super-duper Bryllien booster-boots are working just fine.
Lazlo: Little b-bud…how dare you, you-
Popo: Speaking of little, how about that Edward Elric, eh? He might be small in stature but he sure is large in razzmatazz, oh yeah.
Partijama: The whole series had that in abundance. There was so much action and drama, and so many wonderful characters…
Popo: On both sides, and in-between too.
Partijama: Indeed, and so many story lines I felt like I could just explode.
Popo: You should have that looked at, buddy.
Partijama: Hehehe, I’m quite okay now, Razz. Especially after that ending.
Lazlo: Hmph, it was a decent ending.
Popo: Decent eh? The way you were bouncing about your cloud, I’d say it was a mite better than decent.
Lazlo: What? Gack…geep-
Partijama: Oh my, are you okay, Lord Lazlo?
Lazlo: One of these days, bard…I…I’ll…
Partijama: Didn’t you just love Winry Rockbell and her amazing automail?
Popo: Oh man, that stuff is fantastic. You can replace any limb, and adjust it for climate and speed and anything.
Partijama: Even animals had it.
Lazlo: (Eyes Popo) I wonder if it works for heads?
Popo: An automail head??!
Partijama: Goodness, now that would be a sight.
Lazlo (villain-grin): Indeed.
Partijama: And what about transmutation? Such an interesting ability, don’t you think, Lord Lazlo?
Lazlo: After what happened to the Elrics? I’d need to make meticulous inquiries regarding this law of equivalent exchange before meddling with that power.
Popo: That Edward Elric was one tough cookie though. I mean, after that transmutation boo-boo, to use his own blood to pull off one final bit of alchemy and save his brother – well, kind of – before finally passing out…wow!
Partijama: What would you have done, Razz?
Popo: Oh, probably wet myself, frothed at the lips, let my eyes spin hither and thither, all while passing out, of course.
Lazlo: And what would you have done differently from any other day?
Partijama: Thus began the Elrics’ quest to heal their broken bodies, a thrilling adventure involving a host of other alchemists-
Lazlo: And Homunculi-
Popo: And the “Father” of the homunculi-
Lazlo: And Scar, the Ishvalan.
Popo: The mischief man, yes.
Partijama: All the while trying to thwart a vicious plot of humongous proportions.
Popo: Or rather, humunculous proportions.
Lazlo: And don’t forget the Chimera.
Popo: (Gasps) My heart just cracked…some more.
Partijama: Poor, poor Nina; and that delightful dog, Alexander. Oh, her father was a monster. How could one do that to his child? And such a sweet child.
Lazlo: I would’ve gladly tossed that wretch into the Crasyan pits.
Popo: Well said, Lazlo!
Lazlo: Or let Gluttony have him.
Popo: Or let Fuhrer Bradley…hey, as much as I disliked Bradley, I have to admit, he served up some awesome fight scenes. That battle with Greed in the sewers had my head spinning!
Partijama: That was so amazing, your head really does, spin, Razz. (Razz nodding with vigour and grinning). But yes, that battle was really fantastic.
Lazlo: Fuhrer Bradley was as fast as a Wiwi on Benda juice.
Popo: That’s putting it mildly. Even Scar could barely handle him when he was already weakened.
Lazlo: His ultimate demise was much too tame. He should’ve gone out in a great and wondrous (arms raised) BANG!!
Popo: Hmm, now that sounds like a party.
Partijama: That made me remember what Roy Mustang did to Lust.
Popo: And would’ve done to Envy if Riza Hawkeye and the others hadn’t stepped in.
Lazlo: I liked Envy. He was entertaining, in a nefarious sort of way.
Popo: Enjoyed what he did to Hughes, did you?
Lazlo: Of course not. I liked Hughes too; he was funny.
Partijama: And we’ve still only touched on bits of this amazing series. There were the alchemists and ninjas from the East. They also had epic confrontations with Bradley.
Popo: And the Armstrongs’ epic battle with the homunculus, Sloth.
Partijama: Alex Armstrong and his “beautiful muscles,” hehehehe, so funny.
Lazlo: As funny as his sister, Mira, was gritty.
Popo: And the weird mannequin-like villains, and Barry the chopper…
Lazlo: And the crimson alchemist; what a glorious villain he was.
Popo: Oh oh, and let us not forget Sensei Izumi, and her husband. They provided massive entertainment as well.
Lazlo: And Hohenheim of light – an excellent name.
Partijama: Edward Elric’s fight with the Father in the end was breath-taking too.
Popo (sprawls in his seat, satisfied): Ah yes, just one episode of pure awesomeness after another.
Partijama: Which season did you prefer?
Popo/Lazlo: The second!
Popo: Not that I didn’t enjoy the first one, because I did. It was great. But “Brotherhood” just had…you know…
Partijama: More characters, more storylines, more action; just…more. And a great ending to boot.
Popo (sighs): Yeah. I’m still not convinced about Selim though.
Lazlo: They should put that little fiend on planet Burite. He’ll search long and hard to find a shadow in that place.
Popo: True. They need to keep a whole bunch of eyes on that guy. And now according to the law of equivalent exchange, Partijama, will you accept my brilliant smile in exchange for a mug of hot cocoa?
Partijama: Gladly, Razz. Lord Lazlo, will you accept a hot fudge sundae for a Laquan song of celebration?
Lazlo: That I shall. Popo, will you accept a day without bardliness for-
Popo: For your fudge sundae? Absolutely! You heard him, Partijama, let’s…EEP!
Lazlo: (Racing after Popo) Don’t you want your treat, bard?
Popo: Aye, a hot fudge sundae, not a knuckle sandwich…zoinks!
