We don't bash the anime here.

We just pretend it doesn't exist.

1. No anime-bashing. We don't want to alienate anyone or cause wank. Likewise, no manga-bashing or trolling. (Basically, if you have nothing nice to say, keep it in your own journal.) Anyone caught trying to start wank will be warned.

2. Content to be posted in this community must be MANGA-RELATED. There is already a general Fullmetal Alchemist comm, and it is called fm_alchemist. So if you're posting icons, fanfiction, fanart, etc., they must relate to the manga somehow.

3. In regards to the second anime series (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Fullmetal Alchemist, aka Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood), as it is more faithful to the manga plot and timeline, discussion relating it to the manga and fanfiction adhering to the timeline will be allowed in this community. However, all graphics and downloads will not be allowed and should be posted in fm_alchemist or other relevant communities. (For details, refer to this post.)

4. Crossposting and linking are, not only allowed, but encouraged. This community serves as an extension to all other fan communities, only with an emphasis on the manga.

5. Gen, het, yaoi, yuri- all is welcome as long as it sticks to manga canon. Although, we'd appreciate any warnings and lj-cuts for stuff rated PG-13 and above.

6. Also include an lj-cut and warning for spoilers. In this community, something is considered a spoiler if it is not yet released in English officially- that means you would cut for spoilers from Volume 18 and above (at this point in time). So if you want to have a discussion about, say, Chapter 94, you would put it behind a cut and specify which chapter/volume you will be spoiling.

7. Please don't make a post asking where to download a chapter- refer to this post. All scanlation releases will be locked and added to the memories.

8. Follow basic internet courtesy; this would include lj-cutting large images and long works of prose, using proper grammar and spelling, not spamming, etc.
