Edward Elric’s Alchemy Notebook

Edward Elric | Photographer

In Fullmetal Alchemist we see that Ed and some other alchemists keep track of their research in travel-sized notebooks.  Ed quotes the chemical makeup of the human body from his book, and it makes additional appearances periodically throughout the manga, in particular while taking notes on the Philosopher’s Stone, the Homunculi, and the Truth.  (To protect his research, Ed uses a private code that looks like travelogues.  Alphonse claims he cannot read Ed’s notes because of this.)

I decided to make my own copy of Edward’s journal for my cosplay of Edward Elric at Anime USA.  While it’s still a work in progress, most of the most important pages have been transcribed in - including the Periodic Table of Elements as it appeared in 1906, the human transmutation circle + ingredient list, the Law of Equivalent Exchange, and Ed teaching himself to write left-handed after the loss of his right arm.

I am currently offering to make partial copies of this notebook on commission (Click here for more information).

The Oikawa Tooru Reference document is here!

There are three sections:

  1. IwaOi and nickname occurences.
  2. Things people say about Oikawa (ie. how other characters percieve him).
  3. Interesting quotes from Oikawa that show insight into his character (or that I just found interesting).

Feel free to use for any fic/meta/fandom-ish purposes!

Message me if you have any questions/concerns/just want to talk about Haikyuu!!

Why would I stop watching anime?

You understand how many lessons I’ve learned from watching anime?

  • Full Metal Alchemist: Don’t play with God. You’ll never win.
  • Hunter x Hunter: There are two types of insanity. Subscribe to the good kind and you’ll surely beat out the bad kind.
  • Yu-Yu Hakasho: Any punk has the potential within to do good.
  • Ruroni Kenshin: That which was meant for death can be used as a tool to preserve life. 
  • Dragon Ball Z: Work incredibly hard. You have no clue whose counting on you.
  • Naruto: Never give up on your morals or your dreams. 
  • Sword Art Online: Even the strongest player can’t win alone.
  • Gurren Lagann: The power within you, is the strongest force in the universe. 
  • Akame Ga Kill: Labels mean nothing. It’s your character that counts.

You guys can feel free to add what ya’ll like. I just like to make the point that theres no shade thrown to ya’ll who watch sitcoms, fantasy, sci-fi, drama, whatever. You get enjoyment out of it so enjoy. This is my form and as you can see, I get more than just a few chuckles out of it. 


Seriously though it’s like:

Step 1: go onto google images and search for ‘Karma Quotes’

Step 2: Take a bunch of screen shots of karma from the anime: (or use google if you’re a lazy bum like me)

Step 3: Combine them and what do you get ? THIS:

Hikaru: We are both interested in taking you to the Valentine’s dance, but we are also brothers.
Kaoru: It is of utmost importance we protect that brotherhood from the stresses of courting you, so we’re trying to be as direct and above-board about this as possible.
Both: Will you go to the dance with one of us, and if so, which one?
Haruhi: Okay, we need to get something straight first. This is the cutest thing that’s ever happened to me. 

Kid: “A star just fell from the sky.”

Laughing Bull: “That is not an ordinary star, my son. That star is the tear of a warrior.”

Kid: “What warrior is it?”

Laughing Bull: “A lost soul who has finished his battles somewhere on this planet. A pitiful soul who could not find his way to the lofty realm where the great spirit awaits us all.”

Kaji’s interview got so serious…

“Personally, as a voice actor (whose job is related to anime), my greatest ideal is to be part of some production that will draw broad attention from, for sure, the people who like anime, but also the people who don’t really have a chance to get to know anime. There are many reasons to it, but one of them is that having been working as a voice actor, there were times when I was troubled by some bias and misconceptions surrounding the profession of voice acting. It might be presumptuous of me to say this, but I want to change, no matter how little, the parts of the public image that are off from reality, and show others what voice actors are truly like, and what is amazing about them.

“… Just like screen actors, stage actors, or any kind of performing artists who shine in their own way, there are great things that uniquely belong with voice actors. If there was something necessary to do in order to let those strengths of voice actors be known to more and more people, I think we should appear more on different kinds of media, without countering the pride of being a voice actor.”

i can’t escape from hogwarts au hell so I made a quick comic where midorima uses a hermione quote, i’ll leave the houses of them all to your own imagination~

kuroko and takao weren’t really necessary but i love them so

tbh I know it doesn’t seem like it but I’ve spent at least a decade trying to find My style, from anime chins to westernized faces, to ultimately breaking down and dropping all features, to drawing in basic shapes using minimal lines….. to a weird mix of what I have now.
Idk what I’m saying is…. explore ur boundaries, don’t be afraid to try new things, and don’t be afraid to start from scratch, and don’t imitate someone’s style bc u “just love it so much!!!"instead maybe, take what you admire, practice it, then warp it into something more original.

I want you. I want to spend Christmas with you in ugly sweaters and wearing onesies . I want to hug you from behind and give you billions of forehead kisses . I want to argue with you about things that don’t even matter . I want to stay up all night with you talking about the little things that matter to no one but us . I want to stay up all night watching seasons of our favorite anime . I want to hold you and tell you I’m never gonna let you go . I want those moments where I get butt hurt because you call me stupid for something I did ,and then we both laugh about it even though I’m saying it’s not funny. I want to annoy you for the rest of our lives with my endless questions and affection . I want to press my cold feet on your back and I want to hold your warm hands because mine are always cold . I want to take care of you when you’re sick . I want to watch you draw and listen to you learn to play piano. I want Piggy back rides and playing in your hair . I want the sarcasm . I want the cheek kisses . I want to help you through everything even though you say you don’t talk about your problems I’ll be there when you want to . I want to be yours and I want you to be mine . I want you forever .

境界の彼方 •kyokai no Kanata• to overwrite the accumulated sins. you’ve got as many times you need. from the repeating starting line. painting a tomorrow different from the past. Painting hope for just the two of us, there’s the start line. I never say goodbye.. that’s how it always is. Continuing crystals to serve as proof sheltering as faintly flickering flame. your eyes, emblazoned with a future radiating brilliance, seem to hold as little bit of sadness. take as look into my eyes To make a sacrifice to fain possession of this present reality, impossible to repeat the act is unbreakably bound to loneliness. I can’t measure that weight as I am now but even so, that’s fine. Painted a momentary light, illuminating a single flower. I want to keep our hands connected and always be with you


Fullmetal Alchemist: Mother’s Day

        “Life took you away from us too young. You will always be our hero unsung. I miss you mom”              

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! Since this fandom is evil and I’m assuming there will be mom jokes all day, I thought I would make something sweet and in the memory of Trisha Elric (with an appearance from winry’s mom too!)

Don’t think that by abiding the rules you’ll automatically be useful to society. Rules are not there for us, they are there for the “person who made it” and the “reality” and “future”, which are bound by these lies. They are preventing you from reaching your full potential. Which is why, if there is a future that you want, fight for it! Fight for it and pin down your own “reality”.
