You know you love it. I want to see it! This week's theme is ANIME!!!

 

For those of you new to how this works, here it goes:

 

  1. Dress up in any Anime "look" you can. Be creative, you Japanime fool!
  2. Take a pic of yourself using the built-in camera.
  3. Post the image to this thread.
  4. Vote on the threads you think are the most fantastic and fierce!

The avatars (one Female and one Male) with the most kudos gets shown in the highest glory in the Central Plaza for one week!

 

 

*By the way:

This week, please do not thread squat (post a placeholder post before your actual entry) or post links back to your entry. All other conversation is welcome, once you have submitted an entry. Got it?

My Entry: Edward Elric, the FullMetal Alchemist

 

 

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth...

 

On that fateful night, two brothers committed a taboo in Alchemy, the art of Human Transmutation, in order to see their Mother once more. The failed Transmutation cost Edward Elric his left leg, and Alphonse Elric his entire body. In order to save Alphonse, Edward sacrificed his right arm to pull his soul back from The Gate, and attach it to a suit of armor. What the two brothers created that night was not even human...

 

Now, several years later, the two brothers set out on a quest to seek the fabled Philosopher's Stone. Edward Elric, now a certified State Alchemist who wears Automail in place of his missing limbs, and Alphonse Elric, tied to armor, seek the stone in order to regain what was taken from them: their bodies. 

 

"This is what happens when you get too close to the sun. When you try to bring the dead back to life. Do you really want this?"

 

 

Thanks for checking out my entry, and a big thank you to my Demon Souls armor buddy for posing as my Alphonse Elric.

Don't forget to kudos if you like
