Review: Fullmetal Alchemist (2017)

Danger Girl movie rights scooped up

I'd like to tell you that I got into the Danger Girl comics when they first came out because I was into their tongue-in-cheek take on the James Bond spy film genre. But I was a teenage boy in the 90s so I think we all know why I picked...
