the thing that this show did better than anything, is that it had alot of emotion in it,
it may have not had the best animation, or story, but this show is so emotional, thats why i like this anime.

The story is great and solid. I love the emotional involvement, and all the techncal fluff about alchemy too.

This new FMA series is a remake of old series ?
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: Corycaly on December 01, 2009, 02:57:02 PM
The new fma is a remake that follows closely the manga.

The first season was created when the fma manga was only at its first chapters: its story and scenario is original and doesn't follow the manga.

The second season should be closer to the manga.

I really like the concept of alchemy, it very original and captivating but most of all I'm drawn to the psyche of Edward and his constant desire to get stronger for his brother. I think most of FMA characters have some depth which makes them so real.

The thing that made this amine so great (for me at any rate ;)) wasn't just the character design, music or fluid animation style but because the content had so many of its roots in events and scenarios that mankind has struggled with even to this very day.

The tragedy of loss in war, the indifferent genocide of a nation, the struggle between vengeance and forgiveness or the juggle of guilt in the fulfillment of duty. Even something as simple as losing everything you love at an early age and searching for something to make you whole again; these are all powerfully emotive conflicts which crop up through-out the series again and again, interwoven very skillfully by Hiromu Arakawa with a strong political and military theme, to the point where the entire manga/anime is downright satirical. You don't just care about the characters because they have depth and are well thought out, you care about them because you can relate to them and the struggles they face. And all this is achieved whilst telling an engaging and compelling fantasy that suits the storytelling style of anime/manga very well.

If i could ever write something that was even half as thought provoking, entertaining and inspiring as Fullmetal Alchemist i will feel fulfilled  :sleep:

All that said, do you think using "Fullmetal" as a pen name is an infringement of copy-write? In no way do i wish to claim credit for the name but instead seek to pay tribute to the author; it is my way of honoring him.  :angel:
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: Coryn on July 05, 2012, 02:13:28 PM
Well i wouldn't just use fullmetal by itself. If used as a last name it would work better.
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: legomaestro on July 05, 2012, 02:36:48 PM
Yeah. You have to make sure it's not ambiguous. If you really want the name to stand out use initials e.g M.J Fullmetal

I was gonna go with the Fullmetal Journalist, cos i like the weight of it  :thumbsup:
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: Coryn on July 06, 2012, 01:57:06 PM
Hardly a pen name at that point though. And people would view it as a rip off if you tried to be serious about it. just saying. i'd try to find something completely original.

Post by: abraxus89 on October 29, 2012, 01:41:45 PM
I didnt read much of the above posts, as Im tired and lazy from work ha.

anyway this was probably the first big anime I decided to watch. I went for the dubbed version at first as at the time id been watchin anime for like a few weeks.

I loved it. I didnt find it scary now mind you ha. In my opinion its very well balanced. I liekd the fact there was no BS with it. Though it's been a while since I watched it there wasnt any filler in Brotherhood anyway.

It's a straighforward awesome anime.

My only regret really is that they didnt do anything in the romance area. I think if they had done something It wouldve been the cherry on top.
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: h_musick on October 31, 2012, 08:38:16 PM
It was a really good one. The dubbed wasnt bad. I went with dubbed too sense it was my husband and I watching together. He is not big on manga/anime, but he was really into it.
I think they were kinda young for romance  :heart: but yeah they could have used the other characters for that.
It has the PERFECT ballance of funny and serious.
I didnt watch the brotherhood. Is it as good?
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion

Despite the original being great, Brotherhood was a million times better. :3
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: abraxus89 on November 01, 2012, 06:24:32 AM
It's been a while since ive watched the original Full Metal Alchemist but from my memories of it I loved it.

However, brotherhood was a hell of a lot better. If i recall it was closer to the manga than brotherhood, though I could be wrong.

Well with regards to the romance, perhaps they were a little too young to go all out but they could've expanded a bit at least ya know.
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: h_musick on November 01, 2012, 09:12:19 AM
ill have to watch brotherhood then, I tryed to once but I didnt like it as much, that was a while back though.

Yeah i thnk they could have done SOMETHING in the romance department. I was sad when it ended cause it seemed like there were alot of lose ends... but it also gives you room for imagination for what COULD happen later.  ;)
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: Tostificer on November 01, 2012, 10:22:46 AM
You have no idea musick. Watch Brotherhood and re-read that post, then correct yourself. It's worth it.

Ive watched brotherhood. Without giving anything away. They did a little more with the romance area of things. They couldve expanded more so, regardless of age or circumstance.

anyway. A great anime all in all. Loved brotherhood.

By the way, IMO, there wernt any loose ends. It ended quite well I thought.
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: h_musick on November 02, 2012, 12:32:15 PM
was i spoiling??  :push: sorry.
 
Well I thought they did leave it pretty open. almost like they were setting it up for another.
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: abraxus89 on November 02, 2012, 01:02:20 PM
I think it's safe to say you can expand on any ending from any movie or anime or whatever it amy be.

however my own personal thoughts are taht it ended quite well taking into consideringation how the anime unfolded and came into its own at the end.

Each to there own however. :D

Hmm it's been ages since I actually watched it. As it turns out ive run into ISp trouble -_-

So I'll probably marathon it lol.

My favorite, hmm, hard to tell. I liked pretty much all of it lol! which is rare for me as I at least detest one part of an anime.
Title: Re: Fullmetal Alchemist ANIME Plot & Story Discussion
Post by: h_musick on November 06, 2012, 06:26:47 PM

Post by: abraxus89 on November 07, 2012, 06:01:20 PM
