@rjmendus This is stupid. Because you think that the one show is better than the other one, doesn't mean that nobody should watch this show. Like, I consider Love Live way better than the K-On!, but I never told anyone to not watch K-On!. They both are really cute, heart-warming anime and deserve to be viewed. So is it with this show. I really like it and so does a lot of people.

Not as good as Fullmetal Alchemis Brotherhood, but very, very creative.

avatar

please guys, don't watch this. its a waste of time. trust me brotherhood is way way way better than this! I've seen both so trust me!

avatar

I cried at the end of the first one but the movie is a continual of the show so i have to watch it but brotherhood was happier

avatar

One of the best anime I have watched. I think it is on par with avatar The Last Airbender and attack on Titan.

avatar

Fullmetal Alchemist is a great Sci-Fi Thriller anime of all time

avatar

I solemnly can say that it is almost as good as Avatar... Just in love with everything this show provides...

I'm surprised at seeing so much good comments, honestly. I'm at the 45th episode and... well, it's just not that good. Fullmetal Alchemist was my 1st manga serie and I love it so much but I just don't really find the same spirit in this anime? It's not that bad per se but it's deeply lacking if you compare it to the manga, especially with the character of Winry : it's like they totally forgot that she's also a badass. It's really frustrating. I wouldn't say that it's a bad anime though. I really like the pacing and the show focus a lot on the relationship between Elric brothers which is definitely a good thing. The animation is also really satisfying. Anyway, I'm going to watch Brotherhood soon and I hope I'll be more contented ~
