| Hagane no renkinjutsushi: Superior to the original series
I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to anime, I've seen a few but I'm still finding my feet. I was always told FMA is considered one of the top series and though I enjoyed it I wasn't blown away.

FMA: Brotherhood however I found to be considerably better though the fact the same show was remade by the same studio and with the same voice cast baffled me. Now pardon my ignorance but the way I understand it the original series was an adaptation whereas Brotherhood was a loyal version of the original Manga?

Regardless I consider to it to be considerably better. The character development seems rushed initially but quickly finds its pace, new additions bring a lot to the story and the actual story arc itself is on a far grander scale.

Based on this I can only assume there was a lot of frustration with the original series as it can't have been considered a true adaptation of the source material. We're not talking minor differences here we're talking a different show altogether and certainly a heavily modified plot by comparison.

The stellar voice cast, great animation, gripping story and excellent characters clung to me whereas the original series didn't and I fully understand why many told me it was the superior choice.

Powerful, fascinating and devastating in places FMA: Brotherhood was a really enjoyable ride that I'm glad I was part of.

The Good:

Perfect voice cast

Great characters

Powerful moving plot throughout

More consistent in quality than the original series

The Bad:

Couple of weak episodes

Rushed beginning

I still HATE the over the top facial expressions that break from the anime style

Things I Learnt From This Series:

Anyone who wants you to call them "Führer" is probably up to no good

Envy is what is known as a "Trap" right?

Sometimes dead is better (I totally said that in Fred Gwynnes voice)

Kids should drink their milk!
