I want to watch this anime, but haven't seen any of the episodes. I read a little article in Newtype magazine about the storyline. It's about a boy and his brother doing experimenting with alchemy when things go wrong. In short, he has to sacrifice his right arm to save his brother. I think this is a good storyline, and will definitely buy this anime when it's released on DVD.

Although I haven't seen more than just a few episodes, I can say, a LOT of people claim it's perhaps the greatest anime out there, and that I wouldn't argue.

On top of that, it was directed by Bones, who also directed Cowboy Bebop, Rahxephon, and other great animes.

So yes, you are very right that it is truly probably very good.

Yeah it's a really good anime. I'm just tired of the stupid fan girls who are crowding around just to fight over Envy, Roy, and Ed. It gets kind of tiring when girls AND guys fight over bishi and bisho. Ofcourse, that's basically the consequence of putting out any anime now a days. Stupid fans who just love to talk about one anime.

Yeah, respect for it has seemed to somewhat drop ever since it was released.

And that reminds me VG, I'd suggest watching it subbed over dubbed. I've heard the voice overs are pretty bad ...

the only thing i don't really like about the american version is the fact that they're never going to take it further than the first seison on adult swim... we'll have to buy the dvd's if we want to see the rest in english... it's all fucking merchandising... well that and the fcc... damn fcc... i never had liked them... ohe well... i still think the english dubbin was alright...

(Im a stupid fan who likes to talk about the anime, just putting my insight in)

This is one of two shows I watch weekly, the other is Ghost in the Shell which follows FMA. It airs on Cartoon Network on Adult swim at 11:30 EST. I absolutley love this show, I could easily say its one of my favorite animes of all time. The story is great, like VG said, its about two boys who are both alchemists who lost their mother and tried human alchemy which could not be possible and was very deadly. During this forbidden act one of the brothers Al lost his body and Ed tried to save him losing an arm and a leg in the process. Al is now a huge suit of armor and Ed has an auto-mail arm and leg. The story revloves around them trying to find the philosophers stone and bringing their mother back to life. Aside being one of my favorite animes of all time the story is in my opinion the best out of all types of media. It can go from happy to hatefull to shockingly sick, I litteraly shivered at a few episodes. This has great animation, music, action, story, and above all, character development. I really reccomend this to anyone who hast'n see it yet.

The voice overs/dubbing arnt that bad and I dont like subsequent (you miss some of the scenes while reading) but since its liscensed by Funimation they use their voice actors such as Major Armstrong who is voiced by the same person who did Piccolo/Vegeta for the Dragonball series.

Whoa! Now that you mention it Major Armstrong does sound like a Chris Sabat character. Funimation did a not-bad job on this one, the story and dialogue seems to have kept its original meaning. I really like how it can go from humorus to dark in a moment, making the mood of the show very catchy. I'm also impressed with the mechanical drawings like how Ed's arm fits together and Al's whole suit.

I've seen a little over half of FMA I think. I have to say that i agree with the popular opinion. It's a kick as show with a very angaging story line. It's a great story and it really does throw a lot of twists and such at you to keep you on your toes and paying attention.

I downloaded all the episodes of Full Metal Alchemist cause you won't believe how much they cut from the Adult Swm Episodes. I got almost all of the Japanese version with english subtitles. It pissed me off so much to know how much Adult Swim cut and the cut entire episodes when they went to other towns. u_u It's sad and pathetic

Mustang is a dick. I hate to go with the Hero of the show but Ed just kicks so much ass. I love his arm. Hell if they could actually do stuff like that I'd voluntarily have one made for me, though hopefully without all the severe pain that he goes through whenever they have to reattach his arm or his leg.

*shudders*

Anyway. Ed or Scar I think are the coolest characters in the show. They both just kick ass. Greed was very cool too.

I've only seen the first couple episodes so far, but I like what I see.

As for the dubbing, I think it's safe to say that it's not the best in the world, but it's redeemed somewhat by Lust's dub. Hawt.

I'm not sure, she sounds a lot like Faye.

Whom, I've heard one too many times in dubbed animes.

If it's funimation it could be a newer voice actress or the person's been in another anime like Case Closed or Fruits Basket or something lol. That's as far as they go sometimes. I don't think they makes as much money as GeneonPioneer does now.



Or do they?

I've only seen a couple episodes of the dub. And I must say, It sucked a massive ammount of anus.

The sub is -alot- better.

As my friends always say, Ed (I think that's the one in the armor ...) sounds like some kid is talking into a bucket.

And yeah, I also heard that the kid who does the voice acting for that character is brand new, this is his first time.
