Fullmetal Alchemist: There’s No Such Thing As A Painless Lesson

“There’s no such thing as a painless lesson—they just don’t exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can’t gain anything without losing something first. Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you’ll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah… a heart made Fullmetal.”
Edward Elric, Fullmetal Alchemist

No one likes pain. No one likes to make sacrifices, but when it comes down to it, we realize that they are a necessity in achieving our goals.

Dennis’ Top Five Favorite Animes

Hi y’all! As you can tell from my past posts on anime before (the ones about the characters: here and here), I am clearly a fanatic of anime.

They also take on fake names (Sadao Maou and Shiro Ashiya, respectively). Satan comes into contact with the “hero” Emile (which results in a hysterical conversation with the police), a teenage fellow co-worker falls in love with him, and when Lucifer is brought into his and Ashiya’s household, more funny conflict ensues.
