Twelve Moments in Anime 2009: Moment #11 – Roy Mustang burns on

CCY has thrown down his Twelve Moments of Anime gauntlet, inviting others to join him everyday until Christmas in recalling their 12 favorite anime-related things of the year. Today? Moment #11.

Brotherhood, the latest Fullmetal Alchemist adaptation was the show that didn’t need to be. The original adaptation had aired just five years earlier. And for many of us, it was even newer than that. And it’s not like it needed a new adaptation. The original is one of the most high acclaimed animes of all time – beloved and revered by many. It’s not like Peter Jackson remaking the crappy cartoon version of Lord of the Rings. It’s like a new director telling us that there’s going to be a completely new and different release of the Fellowship of the Rings coming this Christmas. Entertaining? Yeah, probably. Necessary? No way.
