The first Fullmetal Alchemist anime adapation was one of my first anime. I loved every second of it, completely obsessed over both Edward Elric and Roy Mustang. It was the one shounen anime I had fallen in love with. From that moment on, Fullmetal has always had a special place in my heart… even if it did take me a good few years after that to actually watch Brotherhood. When I finally did watch Brotherhood, I obsessed. I binged the show so hard, I was sad when it was over. But luckily for me, there was even more Fullmetal content to love. There are also two movies – The Conqueror of Shamballa and The Sacred Star of Milos.
What an easier post would be is "5 Anime That Didn't Make Me Cry" because there are a lot fewer anime that I haven't cried at, that's for sure. I'm just a big crybaby, what can I say?

The Kuroshitsuji movie is based off the Luxury Liner arc of the manga. I was quite excited to finally watch the movie, but, unfortunately, it wasn't what I expected at all. I'm assuming a part of my dissatisfaction with the movie comes from the fact that the Book of Atlantic arc isn't exactly a favourite of mine in the manga, but I also found a couple of things about the movie that really annoyed me, regardless of my preferences from the manga.
Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni (In This Corner of the World) is an historical drama film directed by Sunao Katabuchi (Black Lagoon, Kiki's Delivery Service). Set in 1944, it tells the story of Suzu Urano, a young girl who loves to paint, as she moves to the town of Kure to marry Shuusaku Houjou - a young clerk who works at the local naval base.
I review yet another of Satoshi Kon's masterpieces - Millennium Actress. A bit of history, a bit of romance and loads of drama - this film has a bit of everything!
