FMA was great in that it had it's own story separate from the manga.
I really liked FMA:B though because some of the fights in the manga I loved seeing animated.
There's no such thing as a bad idea... Just poorly executed awesome ones.

I only watched the original FMA and have read the manga.

Original was okay, but I really didn't like a few of the things they changed. In particular the way Greed dies in FMA compared to the manga.

However at the same time, I didn't really like where the manga direction went either up to a certain point.

Plus FMA blows for killing off the only character I had interest for, Lust, SO EARLY ON. Stupid Mustang.

I prefer FMA.B rather than the original FMA, and I'm saying this after I've watched both anime~  :bingo:
In FMA, there's a lot of loopholes and FMA.B however, provides complete and acceptable(?) explanations for what's been going on. I like the longer, more complicated and challenging world of the FMA.B!  :goodjob:

Bleh, Im kinda on the fence with FMA vs FMA:B vs the manga? ^^;;;;


I liked FMA because it exposed a lot of the gore FMA:B didnt - such as in the truth behind Lab 5 and Ed's decision(s) when he was there.  In FMA:B they kinda completely cut that bit out (at least from memory, I'm pretty sure they did). FMA:B just watered down the gore and violence that was in FMA - not that I'm a glutton for gore, but it's a heavy story and plot so I think they're justified in showing it how it is.

But then again, that's also what made FMA:B good. It had a buncha chibi moments in it that were really funny - especially between Mustang and Ed and Mustang and Hawkeye. I looooved it.

FMA:B also showed more of the story from the manga and went into better details about what was going on, which was a plus for me. Like with Armstrong's sister - wow were they different people in FMA and FMA:B - hahaha! (trying not to give too many spoilers here ^^;;;)


Personally, I think I prefer the manga most though - because it reveals the story exactly as the mangaka intended it to be. And the anime originates from this source. So yea, if you wanna know what's really up with a story, you hafta read the manga.


Overall, I think all three of these were equally good if you judge them on an individual basis and not in comparison to each other. I liked how they kept the art and the voices (reasonably) the same in the anime so it at least carried over in a more believable fashion, rather than trying to make something completely different up like they did with "X". So, as a fan, I wasn't upset with the creators re-releasing another FMA to extend and patch the story to get it closer to the manga - as I take it - was the initial goal for Brotherhood.

FMA:B Followed the manga so much more closer than FMA did.

I can't really say which I prefer...but I totally loved the end of FMA (for some odd reason)! And then the movie...  :o_o:
It was awesome!

But it is true that FMA:B followed the manga very closely, and I appreciate that a lot. Keep it canon, I say!

Yeah, I heard about the movie!  :love:  Excited~
Unfortunately, I have no idea what it could possibly be about, even with the trailers out. =_= Anyone know?

Ho~ I see.  :goodjob:
Thank you, Shiki! That helped out a bit.

I have to say I prefer FMA:B; because I'm glad that Al remembers Ed at the end and that they can be together.
FMA; well I still like. But there's something missing about it that makes FMA:B much better.

FMA:B.

The reason is: I hated the end of FMA.
What was with going to earth etc...  >:(

Oh I agree. I was very wanting at the ending of FMA and the movie didn't help solve anything further, either, in my opinion. It still left so much gaped.

FMA:B's ending felt a lot more complete and satisfying.

Just now finished watching FMB and I have to say that I prefer it over FMA because of the story (it felt more... complete and logical)  and of course because of the ending (loved the EdxWinry ending XD). The only thing that I liked more about FMA is the music.
