Simply put...it's the G.O.A.T hands down.,
This review is from: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Complete Collection One [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I've been following anime since the early 80s. I've seen it's highs and lows..and believe me lol, it has WAY more lows. Anime is a lot like my other favorite genre in Horror..its has tons of entries and tons of crap. That's why the decent ones like say Dragonball Z and Kiddie Grade resonate...it's why we take notice of the better than average one's like Vampire Hunter D, Naruto, & Big-O and why we stand up for the few masterpieces like say Wolf's Rain, Chrono Cross, and Death Note. The first run of FMA was the best anime series I'd ever seen..barely edging out Wolf's Rain while still taking a hit on the much quoted "weak" ending and weaker feature film. Then came Death Note and that was number 1 all the way to stay seemingly. But then the FMA did something unexpected and wonderful, they listened to the fan gripes and redid the series keeping it faithful to the manga this time around. The result is so much better than the original run it's outright staggering IMHO. I really can't see another series topping this. The pacing is flawless and the story keeps you glued until it's over..yet leaves you yearning for much more. It's a story I could follow indefinitely. I will say this tho...the original run had the superior soundtrack IMO:-p So whether you love anime or are simply curious...BUY this.

I agree with you so much, except for the soundtrack part.

Much like the other guy... I couldn't find a single piece in the original FMA to like, but Brotherhood's opening 1 is fantastic.

Thanks for the other series recommendations. I'm new to anime & only discovered FMA because I was trying to put off finishing the really cool Le Chevalier D'Eon. Too bad that show had such a dud ending.
