When the first Fullmetal Alchemist series aired in October 2003, five volumes of the manga had been released, with the sixth arriving later that month. I actually prefer FMA's ending to that of FMA:B, mostly because that last fight in FMA:B couldn't have been any more cliché - quite a letdown for me. Open in app; Facebook; Tweet; Reddit; Mail; ... fma fullmetal alchemist fma 2003 christmas homunculi sorry this isnt alwrath but it is if you watch the video my art. that last fight in FMA:B couldn't have been any more cliché - quite a letdown for me. Which version should I watch?” This is what I hope to decipher for you. I saw the first episode of Brotherhood and hated it, but I've been considering giving the rest of it a shot. 11:27. The Funniest Off-The-Cuff Comebacks in the History of BURNS - Duration: 11:00. I am not a person, obsessed with fighting scenes or action. By the time it ended in October 2004, a year later exactly, eight volumes had been published. Join. I meant that FMA dedicates entire episodes where the plot isn't necessary advanced, but the characters work through their emotions (for example, Al's identity crisis lasts an entire episode rather than a scene and a half). Roy has a darker past. Some prefer one over the other. Don't let anyone tell you Brotherhood is "better" and not to watch FMA. That means that Bones, the animation studio behind Fullmetal Alchemist, had only a fragment of the ultimately 27-v… Each route of Fate/Stay Night ("Fate", "Unlimited Blade Works", and "Heaven's Feel") each have the same core cast, but have very different stories, and are each worth experiencing. Brotherhood is better, of course. It's very different. I don't even care if people use my art, as long as they don't claim it as their own. Again, both of the shows are good. I agree with you, and I don't like this labeling at all. There are only two superhero sagas, which I do love - the Dark Knight trilogy and X-Men (my favorite movies are 1st and 2nd parts, 4th may be). I do love both shows, because FMA Original introduced me to the word of FMA in particular and to the world of anime in general. Brotherhood is more of an action adventure with a larger cast, a bigger world, and where every episode drives the plot forward. FMA is an apple, Brotherhood is an orange. 2003 even has a movie that follows the last episode. If you need to know something, watch closely or be patient. Decide for yourself. *Same goes for any talk of a potential hybrid between the two shows, watching the first bit of 2003 then switching to Brotherhood mid-stream. I am watching FMA now, but it feels like hard work and I don't really enjoy it. That's not meant to imply that Brotherhood doesn't focus on characters, right? Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. It was like throwing it all away. You cannot really compete with that. I like the 2003 series better because of the genre/theme, but that's of course subjective. I just finished Full Metal Alchemist, the original one, gonna start brotherhood soon. FMA is one of the good examples, as the first adaptation is quite watchable and enjoyable. Fullmetal Alchemist is an iconic anime that has been recommended countless times over the past decade. I love FMA 2003 it’s always so cheerful and nothing ever hurts, not even this recap special : ) what a gorgeous monologue envy hurts me so gooooooddddd envy … It was like watching an alternate universe, I would say. And still I find drama in FMA 2009 much better presented than drama in FMA 2003. Someone in this thread mentioned that to compare Brotherhood and FMA 2003 is like to do the same thing with Avengers and Dark Knight; a person, who likes Avengers, would like Brotherhood, and vise versa. I mostly appreciate that they used this to develop other characters, like Lust and Trisha. Somebody who likes to write and draw. I actually didn't start that series until it had already ended and been dubbed for a bit. I would love to discuss your opinions on Brotherhood superiority in depth, but not here, where spoiler tags are in effect. Not to mention, I feel like Brotherhood also has more interesting bits of commentary in it. It isn't nonsense. I do prefer Brotherhood overall in the end, but one thing that is heavy for me is the ending. But the viewing experience for one lends itself to be fast and the other slow. But now it's overshadowed by the newer one. IMO, one is primarily an action adventure and the other primarily a drama, but that isn't to say that one does not have traits of the other. As for me, they are presented significantly better in Brotherhood. A difference between FMA 2003 and FMA:B that I always find really interesting is that in FMA:B, after seeing the Truth, clapping to use alchemy just came natural to Ed and was something he knew from the beginning. EDIT: words. I love it for introducing me to such a great series and providing additional arcs with great characters. To be clear, I'm not saying that Brotherhood is in anyway a "dumb action movie" or somehow appealing to a lesser audience. FMA (2003) is more of a drama, slow and dark that focuses on characters and themes. It really doesn't matter which you consider the 'correct' or 'real' storyline - I prefer the story from FMA 2003, but at the same time I accept that FMA:B is canon and 2003 isn't. I love the 2003 series. FMAB uses actual alchemic stuff that was done in the real world and has a very historic plot which coincides with real world alchemy in interesting ways. It was a great conclusion. I.e. The storyline breaks apart and starts running in opposite directions. FMA is much darker and the final 10 episodes are really good. FMA: Brotherhood and FMA (2003) are independent stories that are both worth watching. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Please Note: This plot summary is condensed for purposes of easy reading. The plot points they share, some of which are done differently, might be redundant if you watch Brotherhood first. Anyone is welcome to criticize me or to argue if one wishes. If you want to watch both, it is advised you watch FMA (2003) first. It was like throwing it all away. (AL getting his body back.) 113 notes. Sigh. Both are fantastic.

It also expanded greatly on the early arc between the beginning and lab 5. 1 Synopsis 2 Full Synopsis 3 Episode Notes 4 See Also A decade ago, the military descended on Ishval to end a long civil war. I just do not understand the mindset that one has to better than the other. Because I feel like the characters of Greed, Scar, Envy (he has a more elaborate backstory in the 2003 series, but I don't really think that counts as having more depth), and the main villain are far more memorable in Brotherhood compared to the 2003 series. In fact, there were some things in the original that I liked better than Brotherhood. ... alchemists and alkahestrists. That's not meant to imply that Brotherhood doesn't focus on characters, right? I really want the story to be a bit slower (not as slow as Original one). I do not like FMA 03 bashing, because it is pointless. In my opinion it is worth it because you get more attached to the characters then in brotherhood. If you watch the 2003 version first then that gets the heavy storyline out of the way and you can enjoy the fact that Brotherhood isn't quite so weighted down. One of my favorites so far. But never equal. For the event, see Ishval Civil War. I both agree and disagree with you. It used to be right up there with Cowboy Bebop and Trigun. From the first moment when I heard Roy Mustang speak I knew I was just as heavily enthralled with Brotherhood as with the original. I like both about the same, but since brotherhood had a happier ending I liked it a bit more. Regardless of opinions and enjoyment, the two shows are built differently. are all welcome. I don't know how popular this opinion might be, but I think what they did with the ending to the 2003 series was kinda cool. She is largely the same as her manga counterpart, however, she begins to crave becoming a human as the series progresses. But if you've seen Brotherhood and are interested in 2003, it is advised that you do not skip any episodes. It wasn't in any way satisfactory. It was annoying. Is it really that good? i watched like half of FMA before getting into Brotherhood and I'm really glad i switched when I did. I stoked to watch brotherhood.

(not to say that metaphors and what not aren't there, it's just MUCH harder to see than in FMAB and the Manga itself). Meanwhile, 2003 dedicates entire episodes to character development, that isn't to say Brotherhood doesn't have they own, different character development. This is because it will be more difficult to go 'back' to FMA 2003, than it will to go 'forward' to FMA:B (mainly beacause FMA:B has a higher quality of animation). Brotherhood expands the whole mythology of fma far more though, and is super deep with characters and themes if you delve into it. However, I myself love Brotherhood more, and I strongly disagree with the OP that FMA is suitable for the drama lovers, while Brotherhood is addressed to the adventure lovers. I would definitely agree with op that if you were going to watch both you should watch the original before Brotherhood, because at one point they split off from having anything to do with one another. Recently I've rewatched the original anime, CofS, and now I'm rewatching Brotherhood. Lust is the first Homunculus formally introduced in the 2003 anime adaptation of Fullmetal Alchemist. In fact, I'm rewatch in it right now. An Ordinary Riceball. Don't spread misinformation. Questions, discussion, analysis, fan art, cosplay, quality memes, etc. The one thing about FMA Brotherhood that I loved is the ending, whereas the 2003 anime never really sealed the deal for me. How FullMetal Alchemist 2003 Told a Story in One Shot - Duration: 11:27. Brotherhood begins with an action packed first episode that rivals significant action scenes in 2003 and it ends with a big battle that completely dwarfs anything from FMA. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to appreciate it since the 2003 version has a special place in my heart. Lots of things are different, so give it a few episodes past the branching point (around episode 25) before giving up on it. I just finished watching it and I kind of liked it as well. The way I see things is that Brotherhood is much more mature anime than FMA 2003. Come post anything related to Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist anime and manga franchise! I think it doesn't hurt to watch 2 versions of the same manga. I agree with this fully. It's a good anime. The biggest problem I have is how they gimped the philosopher's stone (but I get that it emphasizes how powerful it is to bring back just one life). You will find out some more information, background, and some slight plot differences during those episodes. I'll probably go back and watch FMA to compare once I finish brotherhood, but i'm on an emotional roller coaster right now and I don't want it to stop. (Ed can no longer use alchemy whatever.). That isn't to say one lacks action or drama. I asked once more after Brotherhood, and I think it was worth it. 66 notes. It was interesting.
