    Full Metal

    Alchemist is a deep ass show.

    I've finished Regular and Brotherhood.
    Right now I'm reading the Hitman Reborn Manga. I've watched all the anime episodes already

    What are your opinions about FMA and KHR?

    FMA is amazing, haven't read Hitman yet but I've heard it's a generic shounen.

    The first season pales in comparison to brotherhood, but at least the movies make sense then.(oh hey a movie totally unrelated to the series yay!)>

    However i do seem to enjoy the fuhrer kicking ass. Its kinda funny to see a muscular hitler with a saber lulz. Probably one of the better dark manga.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    KHR starts out like To-Love-Ru, all harem/gag reels of him not becoming a mafia "boss". Which btw never happens for w/e reason. He's like "IM A MAN NOW" and then "oh back to being a kid/clutz!"

    Its a good series with interesting characters. Peaked out at byakuran arc and has been going down ever since. I mean time travel where he is dead is like dr.who shit but now its the same old " battle everyone and blah blah blah"

    I have watched both of the animes and finished all the episodes though I am not reading any manga at the moment. I think KHR is lot better than Full Metal Alchemist because of the scenes that kicks ass. What makes the story more interesting in the anime is the past about the Arcobaleno. It really makes you dig up the story... Yeah, Hitman Reborn FTW!

    Rofl.Don't even try to compare FMA and Hitman. Hitman may be good in its own right but FMA is on a whole other level.

    People have their own opinions. In my case I would say Hitman is better

    I'll respect your opinion but Hitman is a generic shounen and FMA is widely accepted as one of the best anime, both Brotherhood and the original.

    Eh.........I don't know about "best" anime.

    ?_? I like the series but the author is pretty........clony with it. I mean he made 1 series, made another entirely true to the manga series, a movie that had nothing to do with anything(twice). And then he made a completely different series that oh wait.....has the same character designs to the core.*(and generally a pretty similar plot).

    I really like how they brought you through the whole storyline in the first season, and then really layered the details on top of it with Brotherhood. It was like reading the back of a book but filled with action, then reading the book itself and really learning the in-depth details on each situation. Enjoyed.

    Well the problem is that brotherhood came out at the most confusing time.


    You see the original(filler) FMA and its movie had just finished a year(?) before.

    The manga however at the time of the filler being finished was about halfway. This lead many fans who enjoyed the manga, to go "hey wtf this anime isn't anything like the manga!". Which was true, the original FMA anime cut to filler at the first encounter with gluttony. Ling was never introduced and greed was non-existent(he plays a pretty big part). The manga however was at the point where i believe sloth was introduced for the first time, which again, was totally different from the anime.


    >>>>>>>Skip to the release of brotherhoood>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    The FMA manga was really getting good, it was about......oh 10 chapters left. They were in the last part where all the stops had been put out. Low and behold, it brotherhood came out.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now to the original FMA anime fans, brotherhood seemed uneccesary, and really just kind of a ridiculous take. The original FMA anime was quite good in its own right if not for having a bit of a low ending and the movie was just silly.

    But here comes brotherhood, brotherhood followed the manga EXTREMELY close(none of that filler bullshit), which lead to it being a LOT better in all regards to story, action, and the anime overall.

    [The downside to this would be that in the beginning of the season everyone had already seen the first 1/4 of the show 100 times by now, especially because adult swim re-aired that half more than any other part of the original FMA]
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    FMA is a great series, probably one of the best shonen ever.


    I could nitpick little things or whatnot but truth be told i was very impressed at the manga. The anime, was handled poorly but overall still great.
