Well I got the first volume a couple of days ago and it was one of those animes that you just sink right into. It's really, REALLY good. The first couple of episodes are very dark though, but overall it's just an amazing anime.

Opinions? Does it get better later in the series? XP

Well after I saw the first couple of episodes of FMA I was hooked! I have the first 26 english episodes and I can't wait until adult swim finishes the run because I want to see the rest.

And to answer your question yes it gets so much better!!!!!!!!

FMA is pretty good. My mom likes it a lot, and she also likes that Samurai Champloo. That one is just weird...>_>...not as weird as Fooly Cooly (is it even POSSIBLE for something to be as weird as this?), but weird enough.

Anyways, FMA is good. It's pretty funny too, a good way to let off some steam if you're angry about something. Just watch some of the funnier eps.

Then look to the internet. www.play.com, it's cheaper than in the shops aswell which always helps ^_^ But if you can't buy stuff online then HMV and Borders stock it occasionaly

You might have cheaper prices up north, it's the same cost as a normal DVD. so aroud £15- £20

FullMetalAlchamist is a pretty good anime. Some things didnt make sence though because the other side of the gate has airplanes, when Earth should =/ I liked all the episodeds but i think it would of been better if Al kept his memorys after he was turned into the philoserstone and became a kid again...
Ed gave him his body and soul but his memorys didnt come in the package :confused: Mustang shouldnt of got shot in the eye...he looks like the evil boss who betrayed them :oops:

Yeah, next time you post something like this, you need to post :::SPOILER ALERT::: or something like that before anything else. You have to respect the people who haven't been watching the anime for too long or who haven't started watching it yet and want to. Things like this ruin it for them.

FMA is worthy of the title of best ever anime series. It's simply excellent. I have all 3 domestically released volumes so far and will go after 4 and on as they release (just so you know, vol. 4 will be out 7/26, and 5 will be out 9/20).

I agree totally, FMA is one of the best Anime I've seen in a while, it's got alot of elements that I enjoy and when I least expect it, a laugh.

FMA does have some laughs packed in. FMP is okay, but it's not as good as Fumoffu (the FMP sequel).

FMA is an awsome anime, never miss an episode on Adult Swin (even if it is dubbed, better than nothing)


SPOILER ALERT:






Usually I don't cry until the last episode of the series but the death of Hughes, that was sad. For a desk worker, he was awsome.

Completely different

FMP is some army guy has to protect some special high school girl, and he can pilot giant robots.

I actually think it's pretty good, the manga anyway, haven't seen the anime version. The robot thing isn't overdone, and there are some funny moments

I've watched untill eps. 21, but really, really, REALLY :dazed: hope Ed smacks Mustung in his face. He deserves that, trying to make sparks in the rain. Stupid, stupid.... :susp:

It's getting much more a laugh when Al and Ed are being compared in height. Ed's reaction is priceless.

Mustang & Greed are the two coolest charecters in the entire show, IMO. Heh, and Armstrong isn't too bad either.

Yeah I had that too. While I was watching, I was thinking can it get any sadder than this. And when it ended, I thought: "wow :crackup: , this is so good! I want more!"

Not the biggest fan of Fullmetal Alchemist, but I have seen a few episodes. I like what I've seen and the only episode I've seen fully is that "Mother" episode. Sad one...

I have a friend who is so obsessed over the show, he's going to an anime convetion tomorrow with some friends dressed up as the characters except for one of them who is going as Vash from Trigun who is making most of the costumes. Boy, is he going to be out of place.

Dude, you need to resize your signature. PLEASE. Anyway, Full Metal Alchemist is a cool show. I think the newer episodes are a lot stranger though.

Too many crying in that show. Almost every single damn episode has someone crying. Don't beleive me? Watch any episode and I guarantee someone will cry sooner or later.

That's called being realistic.

Heck, I rather watch FMA, than bobobo... The only crying there, is of bad jokes and kicks to the heads.

*nod nod* I agree. But the crying sets the mood. It IS the saddest anime.

Bobobo > All anime ever created

And how is continuous crying realistic? I don't cry every single damn day, and I'm pretty sure other people don't either.

It's kind of a sad, and kinda realistic storyline. And I bet about three episodes are set on a single day, that's why the sad stuff last long. But I haven't seen ANY episodes here in Wales.....:(

There are much sader anime out there. "Grave of the Fireflies" Is supposed to be much more of a tearjerker, but I've yet to see it myself. I think your basing your opinion off your obsession, really.

And, in the event your signature was true (needs to be resized), it's "bad taste syndrome"... :susp: If you're going to say something stupid, at least spell it right....

Anyway the English theme for the series is very good. ^^ L'Arc~En~Ciel Rocks.

FMA is pretty good. I enjoy it more than I thought from all the hype. I guess what I like most about it is all the interesting ways people can be altered /created, and the blur of life, death, and existence.
