What's your choice? FMA was made before the original manga by hiromu arakawa was finished with the series. While brotherhood is the storyline that follows the full manga of FMA. My personal is brotherhood but they both have some amazing twists. Top rated anime according to my anime list!! I love them both but brotherhood has my heart. Also brotherhood has an official ending that makes for a loving semi long anime filled with insane brother bonding and side story love scenes that are under the table. ED WINRY FOREVER!! Anime is life!!
