Fullmetal Alchemist (Original)
I think FMA gets criticized a lot for not following the manga, but here's the thing: this anime caught up to the manga, and they asked Hiromu Arakawa where to go from there; she gave them free reign because she wanted to see where they would take it, and, even though it's not the direction she went with, she loved it! I think this series should get more respect for that. Additionally, though I think I overall prefer Brotherhood a tiny bit more, there are things about FMA that I think were done better than in FMAB, particularly the little kind of background anecdotes, like when the boys helped deliver Elicia, Hughes's baby girl, with the help of Nina (I may be misremembering that a little; it's been a while!), and when Winry was kidnapped by Barry the Chopper. I feel that that kind of stuff was kind of rushed through in FMAB so that it didn't have as much impact when things happened with those characters later on (Elicia still made me cry at the funeral though D'X).
I actually don't have much for this. I tend to agree with most anime ratings I see.
This anime is really cool and interesting and doesn't get the attention it deserves, I think. Sure, it's not fun and adventurous like so many other awesome anime; it's very much more on the serious side and can be a little hard to wrap your head around sometimes, but, if you haven't seen it, I really think you should give it a chance! I always recommend this to fans of stuff like Death Note.
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined!
Until next time! Please, feel free to share your thoughts/answers in the comments! I love discussion!
