Series Summary:

An essential addition to any anime collection, Fullmetal Alchemist recounts the compelling story of the Elric brothers: Two young alchemists who sacrificed innocence and flesh when they ignored the laws of Alchemy in an attempt to resurrect their mother. The horrors they recklessly unleash mark the beginning of an adventure that leads an unforgettable cast of characters from darkness to light and back again.

In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what they’ve lost – but how far will they go to get it? From the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse quickly rise to fame within the ranks of the military, realizing along the way that the power to create is only ever a breath away from the power to destroy. And whether they’re up against monsters, madmen, or military officials, the bond these brothers share will be the greatest weapon they have in the fight for their lives.

Cat Cafe Opens in New York City for a Limited Time

New York is the latest city to embrace the cat cafe, following Vienna, San Francisco, London, Seoul, and Singapore. Just doesn’t seem fair that we don’t have one in Dallas yet, but I guess we’ll just have to be patient. In the meantime, denizens of the Big Apple can enjoy this purr-fect treat for a limited time–it’s only around for four days!

 

The Purina One pop-up Cat Cafe can be found at 168 Bowery, and features cat’achinos, pastries, and adorable kitties that you can adopt on the spot from the North Shore Animal League. The best part is that the food and drinks are free! Ok, well maybe the best part is the cats, but free food and drink is a very, very close second. They’ll even put kitty latte/foam art on your drinks!

 

We know a few anime characters who would go crazy for a cat cafe. Like Al from Fullmetal Alchemist and Sebastian from Black Butler. How would you like a cat cafe where Sebastian served you drinks?
