Took me a little while to finish this with a napping baby on my lap, so it's a few days late, but --

Happy 5 Months, Grayson! He's my little Boy Wonder, and if his sleep habits as of late have anything to say about it, he is the night (hold the vengeance)!

Little man and I are representing our Saiyan pride over here today and went outside to train in the unusually nice weather we had today for mid-January in Ohio. If only we had a gravity chamber for the rest of the winter.

Grayson grew out of his Thanksgiving outfit before he could wear it, so instead he's representing the Sand Village. It's brown so it fits, right? 😉

My oh my! Looks like my post from a few days ago never posted.

October 6th was Grayson's 1 Month birthday! I can't believe I've been a mom to this little guy for a whole month already. It both seems like he's always been here and he's hardly been here a week all at the same time. With NYCC this week we're already planning our first family cosplay for next year. 😊

Well, my late nights are no longer by choice, but by necessity.

I bring to you the source of my sleepless nights, Grayson Elric (Yes, we switched the name order last minute. He looked more like a Grayson and has always felt like a little acrobat in the womb.)

Born September 6 at 6:47 pm.

As much as I miss my sleep, this little guy brings me so much joy.

Although I really shouldn't have due to recovery restrictions, I did a super quick improvised photoshoot when he was six days old. This little bugger was too cute not to.

Welcome to the world, Grayson Elric. 😊

Sadly, #MangaMonday will be going on a hiatus for a while, so make sure to check out my last pre-break entry: Fullmetal Alchemist! 

Well, hello there friends! I guess it has been a while since #MangaMonday has been around and I apologize for my disappearing act. Between moving into a new house and preparing our house and myself for our little baby that will be here any day now, my days have been filled to the brim! That being said, today will be my last #MangaMonday for quite some time as it will have to take a hiatus to care for our little one. So today I bring you an extra special #MangaMonday send off with one of my top 3 manga and anime and an extra special edition featuring Fullmetal Alchemist! Fullmetal Alchemist has such a special place in the hearts of my husband and me, that we have decided to name our son Elric, after the Elric brothers in Fullmetal Alchemist. So what a fitting way to say "goodbye for now" to my favorite feature in the face of the birth of our son, Elric Grayson B. :)

In case you're new here: #MangaMonday is a feature in The Comic Book Community featuring a different manga every Monday! Each post will highlight a new or classic manga offering a brief summary and review from your host, B-chan. #MangaMonday will be on hiatus for now, so look back through the hashtag in the CBC Features category to access past and future posts.

Fullmetal Alchemist is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa. It was serialized in Square Enix's Monthly Shōnen Gangan magazine between August 2001 and June 2010; the publisher later collected the individual chapters into twenty-seven tankōbon volumes.

The manga was published in English by Viz Media in North America. It has been adapted into two anime television series, two animated films—all animated by Bones studio—and light novels. Funimation dubbed both television series and films into English and originally released them for North America. Viz Media localized the light novels, and Funimation and Destineer have localized the video games. Original video animations, video games, supplementary books, collectible card game and a variety of action figures and other merchandise have been based on the series' characters. A live action film based on the series is also in the works.

The Fullmetal Alchemist manga has sold approximately 64 million volumes worldwide. The English release of the manga's first volume was the top-selling graphic novel during 2005. In two TV Asahi web polls, the anime was voted the most popular anime of all time in Japan. At the American Anime Awards in February 2007, it was eligible for eight awards, nominated for six, and won five. Reviewers from several media conglomerations had positive comments on the series, particularly for its character development, symbolism, and philosophical references.^

About Fullmetal Alchemist:
The world of Fullmetal Alchemist is styled after the European Industrial Revolution. Set in a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques, the story follows two alchemist brothers named Edward and Alphonse Elric, who are searching for the philosopher's stone to restore their bodies after a failed attempt to bring their mother back to life using alchemy. ^

B-Chan's Review:
As I said above, Fullmetal Alchemist is one of my favorite manga and anime of all time, so, I have nothing but good things to say. I started watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood a while back, then immediately watched it again with my husband to show him its greatness. There are actually two different anime adaptations of the series, Brotherhood being a later version that very closely follows the manga (which is always a better option, in my opinion). Fullmetal Alchemist hits hard with its emotion and deep subject matter regarding war, religion, science, and life. It's not often something really gets to me, but the anime (and subsequently the manga, but the first time is always harder) had me in "the feels" several times (and that was before the pregnancy hormones). The characters and their relationships are very in-depth, each with a hardship or trait many of us can attribute to ourselves at one time or another. This manga is at the top of my "must read" list for all manga lovers, and would be a great starting point for those new to manga as it still falls easily into a "North American" format. Read it for yourself and let me know what you think!

Well, this is it for a while my wonderful CBCers! I will miss interacting with you all regularly, but I will try to keep in touch whenever I get down time. I will miss you all! Keep on reading my lovelies!

About Manga:
Manga is a Japanese comic book, sometimes published separately or as part of a weekly or monthly publication. Most manga is written and illustrated by a singular person, known as a mangaka, from start to finish. Manga is often uncolored, utilizing the inking stage to bring the pages to life.

Note from B-Chan: Even if you read manga online, always support the official release so more great manga can come your way and talented creators can continue to create!
