Just finished Fullmetal Alchemist and want to talk about it!
SPOILERS FOR FMA AND THE CONQUER OF SHAMBALA MOVIE!
To clarify I watched the original anime, NOT BROTHERHOOD. So let's avoid any spoilers from that.
I loved FMA so much that I'm actually annoyed everyone says to just skip it and watch Brotherhood. From what I understand people say it's bad because it deviates from the Manga, whereas Brotherhood follows the Manga to the letter. Seems petty to me but I know people are pretty protective of source material and get annoyed at even the slightest changes. Just look at fans for shows like Game of Thrones or the Walking Dead.
Wrath was actually my favorite character believe it or not (not to be confused with King Bradley) I don't know if that's surprising, I'm not sure how popular he is. I just really loved his origin and character, so you can probably guess that the Conquer of Shambala wasn't a great time for me. Sometimes his plot frustrated me as Ed and Al tended to act as if it was a completely black and white situation and that he was pure evil. And I'm not pleased with how his story ended, but still I loved the character. I'm actually not that excited to watch Brotherhood because I know he's not in it.
Anyway I was wondering if there'd be any fans of the anime here who'd like to discuss it. Who are your favorite characters? What are some of your favorite moments?
Oh but please no debates over whether or not Brotherhood is better.
