fma 2003 reddit

Recently I've rewatched the original anime, CofS, and now I'm rewatching Brotherhood. It was like watching an alternate universe, I would say. For the event, see Ishval Civil War. Created Nov 4, 2011. But if you've seen Brotherhood and are interested in 2003, it is advised that you do not skip any episodes. If you need to know something, watch closely or be patient. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the FullmetalAlchemist community, Continue browsing in r/FullmetalAlchemist. A number of action scenes (and humoristic ones, I need to say) is the main thing which distracts me in Brotherhood. The 2003 series also goes a bit slower with the exposition. Some prefer one over the other. it seems like most people thinks that brotherhood blows 2003 out of the water but after watching 2003 i have to disagree. But then I went on the internet and nobody talks about it anymore. The unspeakable atrocities which followed continue to haunt the Ishvalan people -- and the State Alchemists who committed them. I will try not say which one is “better”, but point out the key differences and leave the decision up to you.First thing is first: this is a great show for anime newbie… that last fight in FMA:B couldn't have been any more cliché - quite a letdown for me. Questions, discussion, analysis, fan art, cosplay, quality memes, etc. They each have a special appeal to me, and the stories being very different were what appealed to me. I really want the story to be a bit slower (not as slow as Original one). The biggest problem I have is how they gimped the philosopher's stone (but I get that it emphasizes how powerful it is to bring back just one life). Nobody from Xing, no Father in 2003, but Sheska is a bigger player. It was annoying. It really doesn't matter which you consider the 'correct' or 'real' storyline - I prefer the story from FMA 2003, but at the same time I accept that FMA:B is canon and 2003 isn't. are all welcome. Because I feel like the characters of Greed, Scar, Envy (he has a more elaborate backstory in the 2003 series, but I don't really think that counts as having more depth), and the main villain are far more memorable in Brotherhood compared to the 2003 series. It's always the first anime I show to a friend I'm introducing anime to. I fell in love with the original anime back when I was getting bored of Inuyasha and had to find something else to watch on Adult Swim. Brotherhood is not a sequel to the 2003 anime. My point was to highlight that the two anime are truly different experiences. Brotherhood is better, of course. Al is perhaps even more innocent in some ways, but also basically the same. I don't want the characters to like be different and stuff...What do you guys think? That said I loved the different character designs, the darker approach, and in some ways it was more "scientific" with all of the different arrays/circles. I agree with this fully. IMO, one is primarily an action adventure and the other primarily a drama, but that isn't to say that one does not have traits of the other. This is the one thread that shouldn't succumb to this bullcrap, come on people. After finishing FMA '03, before starting Brotherhood, the first thing I thought was "I hated this ending". Many didn't. It wasn't in any way satisfactory. FMA: Brotherhood and FMA (2003) are independent stories that are both worth watching. Seriously the original FMA is probably one of the best anime's ever, it's absolutely a must watch. events that happen early in Brotherhood happen midway through FMA 2003. Is it really that good? They have the same core of central characters, the same premise and early plot points, but different stories, art, etc. Decide for yourself. I've been waiting so long to hear that... My first anime was the 2003 series. (AL getting his body back.) If you want to learn more, please refer here before posting a question. Both are widely adored and you should definitely try both. Again, I strongly dislike Avengers, Spider-Man and others Transformers-like fully entertainment action movies. I do love both shows, because FMA Original introduced me to the word of FMA in particular and to the world of anime in general. 2003 even has a movie that follows the last episode. It also expanded greatly on the early arc between the beginning and lab 5. #alphonse elric #edward elric #fma 2003 #fma #Fullmetal Alchemist #fullmetal alchemist 2003 #fma03 #fma 03 #2003 sloth #2003 Alphonse #2003 edward More you might like royai roy mustang riza hawkeye vato falman Maes hughes Jean havoc fmab fma 2003 fma fullmetal alchemist fullmetal alchemist 2003 fullmetal alchemist brotherhood 2003 is darker, slower, and more in depth for some characters while less so for others. Ed is basically the same but cries more and is even more guilt-ridden (if that's possible). The storyline breaks apart and starts running in opposite directions. She is largely the same as her manga counterpart, however, she begins to crave becoming a human as the series progresses. I loved that show. I agree with you, and I don't like this labeling at all. The characters didn't develop as much (ed is a dick for the entire series run/Roy never feels like he cares for riza until the end), the Homunculi have interesting origins but no particular reason for their actions (why blindly follow your leader), and that ending was pretty abrupt (I'm counting the CoS end as the true ending for the og series). http://www.reddit.com/r/FullmetalAlchemist/wiki/faq, http://www.reddit.com/r/FullmetalAlchemist/wiki/spoilers, [SPOILERS][NSFW] When I finished FMA '03, I asked the question "Was it worth it?" When the first Fullmetal Alchemist series aired in October 2003, five volumes of the manga had been released, with the sixth arriving later that month. Questions, discussion, analysis, fan art, cosplay, quality memes, etc. That means that Bones, the animation studio behind Fullmetal Alchemist, had only a fragment of the ultimately 27-v… He was amazing in FMA, he would have been perfect in Brotherhood. I couldn't come up with a suitable answer. By the time it ended in October 2004, a year later exactly, eight volumes had been published. There are many instances in the anime that have no significant bearing on the overall plot which does not appear in this summary.Edward and Alphonse Elric—more commonly known as Ed and Al—are teenage Alchemists with a tragic past. I meant that FMA dedicates entire episodes where the plot isn't necessary advanced, but the characters work through their emotions (for example, Al's identity crisis lasts an entire episode rather than a scene and a half). Brotherhood expands the whole mythology of fma far more though, and is super deep with characters and themes if you delve into it. Sigh. The comment section has already turned into a "but [series] is better" circlejerk. FMA 2003 also had the best OST. 113 notes. 66 notes. Brotherhood is more of an action adventure with a larger cast, a bigger world, and where every episode drives the plot forward. Lust gets more screen time and character. Brotherhood has a much better ending. However, I myself love Brotherhood more, and I strongly disagree with the OP that FMA is suitable for the drama lovers, while Brotherhood is addressed to the adventure lovers. I just do not understand the mindset that one has to better than the other. I do prefer Brotherhood overall in the end, but one thing that is heavy for me is the ending. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. A difference between FMA 2003 and FMA:B that I always find really interesting is that in FMA:B, after seeing the Truth, clapping to use alchemy just came natural to Ed and was something he knew from the beginning. It was like throwing it all away. FMA (2003) is more of a drama, slow and dark that focuses on characters and themes. Its hard to watch the original version if you watched brotherhood first, it is mostly the same plot as the first 10ish episodes of brotherhood but way slower and in depth. There are only two superhero sagas, which I do love - the Dark Knight trilogy and X-Men (my favorite movies are 1st and 2nd parts, 4th may be). To me, 2003 is a good shounen anime with a really unique ending. Lots of things are different, so give it a few episodes past the branching point (around episode 25) before giving up on it. Don't spread misinformation. I am watching FMA now, but it feels like hard work and I don't really enjoy it. It used to be right up there with Cowboy Bebop and Trigun. I saw the first episode of Brotherhood and hated it, but I've been considering giving the rest of it a shot. The plot points they share, some of which are done differently, might be redundant if you watch Brotherhood first. In fact, there were some things in the original that I liked better than Brotherhood. I both agree and disagree with you. (not to say that metaphors and what not aren't there, it's just MUCH harder to see than in FMAB and the Manga itself). I mostly appreciate that they used this to develop other characters, like Lust and Trisha. I don't even care if people use my art, as long as they don't claim it as their own. It was like throwing it all away. Nope. And still I find these movies to be more entertaining than serious. I love FMA 2003's - as in, the main series' - ending. Highly nope. Which is to be kind of out there and not really directly correlating to things we see in our world. 11:27. Official Fullmetal Alchemist Posters Trying to make an archive that is easy to search, and for the best quality versions of scans. I like both about the same, but since brotherhood had a happier ending I liked it a bit more. FMA (2003) is more of a drama, slow and dark that focuses on characters and themes. Brotherhood begins with an action packed first episode that rivals significant action scenes in 2003 and it ends with a big battle that completely dwarfs anything from FMA. It wasn't in any way satisfactory. And still I find drama in FMA 2009 much better presented than drama in FMA 2003. The one thing about FMA Brotherhood that I loved is the ending, whereas the 2003 anime never really sealed the deal for me. I'll probably go back and watch FMA to compare once I finish brotherhood, but i'm on an emotional roller coaster right now and I don't want it to stop. are all welcome. I heavily prefer Brotherhood, but DAMN, do I wish that Frank Archer was in it. 505. engaged in research. Cookies help us deliver our Services.

Someone in this thread mentioned that to compare Brotherhood and FMA 2003 is like to do the same thing with Avengers and Dark Knight; a person, who likes Avengers, would like Brotherhood, and vise versa. i watched like half of FMA before getting into Brotherhood and I'm really glad i switched when I did. That's not meant to imply that Brotherhood doesn't focus on characters, right? it was a basically the same story as FMA minus the filler episodes and then BAM, 5th library kicked that plot into high fucking gear. IMO ... Come post anything related to Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist anime and manga franchise! I kind of treat it as an alternate universe. StoryStreet 4,711 views.

(although technically not the first witnessed by the Elrics, chronologically). I love FMA 2003 it’s always so cheerful and nothing ever hurts, not even this recap special : ) what a gorgeous monologue envy hurts me so gooooooddddd envy … I love the 2003 series. Each route of Fate/Stay Night ("Fate", "Unlimited Blade Works", and "Heaven's Feel") each have the same core cast, but have very different stories, and are each worth experiencing. Without getting into spoilers, FMA's final climax is primarily about the Elrics and their relationship, while Brotherhood's is about fighting the bad guy. Both are excellent for what they are. While in 2003, we see him using transmutation circles even afterwards.

The core difference between the two anime is how liberally they adapt the manga. But to all the newcomers and the handful of haters, don't throw away an apple because it doesn't taste like an orange. Sometimes it ends up good, sometimes it doesn't. Meanwhile, 2003 dedicates entire episodes to character development, that isn't to say Brotherhood doesn't have they own, different character development.

Simply that they devote more screen time to their primary focus. It's not quite as fantastic as brotherhood was, and having seen brotherhood first it might be harder for you to watch than normal, but it's still worthwhile. I feel like most things in the original anime suffered because of the direction they took. Like the sin, Greed, being more about craving for human connection, and how he sides with our heroes, making this sin appear to be the most relatable of the seven deadlies. fma03month rose thomas riza hawkeye sheska Winry Rockbell maria ros dante don't take that one serious i like her as a character but she's a horrible and stinky person (literally) martel gracia hughes izumi curtis sloth 2003 2003 sloth Trisha Elric fma 2003 fma 03 Fullmetal Alchemist fullmetal alchemist 2003 fullmetal alchemist 03 ...
