    Re: Fma vs Brotherhood

    I would have to go with Brotherhood. It follows the manga MUCH more closely.

    The original was more comedic than Brotherhood, but Brotherhood had much more emotion.

    The back story of the majority of the characters was changed quite a bit, though again, Brotherhood followed the manga, so really Brotherhood is better in this aspect.

    The animation is about the same.

    As far as this interpretation goes, Brotherhood is a bit better.

    Though, not to say the original FMA wasn't good, it was great. It was hilarious, had a great story-line, and was just fun to watch.

    Brotherhood really fleshed out the characters, creating a good, strong cast. It has a lot of twists and turns, but was still easy to follow. It, like you said, has more action scenes.

    In my opinion, Brotherhood is better, but FMA is still great.

    Re: Fma vs Brotherhood

    Ok I just finished watching the whole series of the original fma and I really liked it. But people say that the original fma is nothing like the manga.. So why make the original nothing like the manga, then make another series exactly like the manga...?

    Re: Fma vs Brotherhood

    anyway brotherhood has way more action and the characters are quite different well there back stories anyway but it is still better there is almost no filler wich i think is awesome if they made more "need to know" series where they tell you only things you need know that would be fine by me

    Re: Fma vs Brotherhood

    ive watched bot. Never read the manga but must say that brotherhood was better.
    Still Fma was worth the watch aswell.
    But the newer one was better for me, more action and tad better animation imo hehe.

    The producers of FMA started the show a little early and the manga was not finished at the time and because well manga is released once a month and anime is once a week, the anime past where the manga was in its story so the editors of the anime pretty much had to pull a story out of there @$$, where as BH was created after the manga had finished and lots of the died hard fans were not pleased with the original show because it was nothing like the manga after epi 14 i believe or after they first meet Greed.

    Now my opinion about the two different series is simple, the original was well totally original story and everything except the ending made no sense for a number of reasons. Also the original got involved with the two diff universe things one without alchemy and the other with it. Which was to realistic in my point of view they should have left that out. The series also ended on very sore note for me (including the movie) with that Ed returned met up with Al and then went back to NAW(none alchemy world) but they left the most important person behind!!! Winry WTF!!!!!! Ed and Winry were suppose to be made for one another and the original just left it at nope Ed don't get his wifey, i was very upset....Positive note on FMAO(full metal Original) is that it had a good story, kept me coming back and watching it, and got you attached to the characters, the story was strong till the end.

    Brotherhood i started watching it hearing it was going to be based on the manga as close as possible with no filler episodes just a straight cut story. At first i was a little skeptical about the series it left out lots of info that FMAO had. But then it started getting better, you got more involved with Al and how he felt about not having a body, You really learned how Ed felt it was his duty to get there bodies back and that he took this burden on by himself. also Winry played a much bigger role always fixing and enhancing Ed's armor mail, you got to see the connection ed, al and winry all had. Also you got to see more about Hoenhiem. His role was played slightly down in BH but it was still a very strong role. The ending was sad and magnificent at the same time, i was on the edge of my seat watching it and was so sad when it finally came to an end. Brotherhood was a better story, the action was better i even think there was more in it, it wasn't as dark as FMA but it still had its dark points for example when Hawkeye found out selim was a homuculist, throughout the series you would have never even guessed that because they hid it so well.

    Final Verdict!! Brotherhood wins by a landslide, but what i loved about FMA was if your perfomred the tabbo alchemy a homucluist was created of person you tried to bring back, i enjoyed that out of the original, but Brotherhood was way more in depth, characters were better, there was more, and the overall story told was better.

    Re: Fma vs Brotherhood

    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is a little longer than Fullmetal Alchemist and has a deeper plot. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood follows the manga more closely, and regular Fullmetal Alchemist is pretty different from the manga. They are both amazing though, u should watch both versions. I really have no complaints for either of them, they are both good in different ways. I think I prefer Brotherhood cause it's longer

    Re: Fma vs Brotherhood

    I'd have to say that Brotherhood was a significantly superior story in my opinion.

    Now the first FMA anime, for adapting what was like 5 or so volumes worth of manga material, did a decent job I guess. But the problem was that for its moderately long run, it hardly developed much. Ed and Al were both a great deal more developed in Brotherhood in my opinion. Heck most of them were, with Mustang's revenge, Bradley's backstory, the deal with Winry's parents, there was just a bunch more depth in Brotherhood in general. Characterwise Brotherhood was superior too. Kimblee and Bradley were garbage in original anime but were completely badass in Brotherhood. Probably the only character I can think of who got superior development from the old FMA was Lust, everyone else was so much more shallow by comparison.

    Not to mention the main villain of the old anime was not only pretty generic and boring, but she got offscreened by Gluttony. Yes, the antagonist got offscreened. That's really something you can't respect at all.

    Plus Brotherhood concluded very well and tied up just about all the loose ends. Fullmetal Alchemist ran for 51 (I believe) episodes and still needed a sequel movie to actually conclude the rushed and not-really-an-ending ending of the TV series.
