Summary: Two brothers lose their mother to an incurable disease. With the power of "alchemy", they use taboo knowledge to resurrect her. The process fails, and as a toll for using this type of alchemy, the older brother, Edward Elric loses his left leg while the younger brother, Alphonse Elric loses his entire body. To save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm and is able to affix his brother's soul to a suit of armor. With the help of a family friend, Edward receives metal limbs - "automail" - to replace his lost ones. With that, Edward vows to search for the Philosopher's Stone to return the brothers to their original bodies, even if it means becoming a "State Alchemist", one who uses his/her alchemy for the military.

Based on my previous experience in the later installment of the series,

this one is for true Manga Fans because based totaly on the official storyline,
note you that i'm an Hardcore fan of the first series !

This one goes more in depth, in the world of fullmetal, and it leaves no stone unturned,
there for if you are a Anime Fan of its predecessor, or a Manga Fan you are in for a joy ride...

FMA Brotherhood is different story with FMA even have many similar character. The story is not gore, more fun, not tragic, sand can't kill good character. Brotherhood has many fanservice like pairing Ed with Winry, love troubles, the homonculus some are different and they not human unlike FMA ,no sacrifice or death(only Hughes who died but not as sad as FMA). I recommend to watch this after some times rest watched FMA to not think that the character is same, Ed in Brotherhood is not serious type, childish, less smart, and easier to angry

pros
+ nice storyline with both action and drama that includes some twists, not to mention follows the manga more closely than the original fma
+ well done chara backstories + development
+ great music
cons
- earlier eps are hard to follow if you're completely new to the series (started this off, didn't get what was going on, read the manga, came back, and suddenly understood.... lol)
- rather simple-minded here or there, very very random villain
- pace and artwork aren't always consistent... but that's minor

conclusion: a pretty good (read more)

You... I just have no words.

"i was like wow this is a remake -__-"

I read that and I was, like, wow this guy is a retard. You realize this actually goes off of the manga right? Aka the actual original. The first FMA anime didn't follow the manga at all.

Do some research before letting your fingers fly about your keyboard like a flailing retarded seagull.

the main reason I love it is how the anime series is focused on the main story right from the start. ( no fillers, I think, coz I nvr read the manga )
I nvr watch fma but fma brotherhood seems to be interesting so I give it a try.
The story IS twisted but not that twisted. Get it? xD The main goal is for the elric brothers to gain their leg, arm and the whole body for alphonse, and that is the story from the very beginning until the end. Though there were suprises along the way. It is not too complicated.
I have to be honest though, what really (read more)

I liked this anime alot even though i didn't watch the orginal or read the manga so im purely writing this solely on this anime. the story was well thoughout and had alot of plot twists and interesting developments however i was confused about the ending but anyway there was a nice mix of action, filler episodes, character focus and comedy to keep me entertained throughout the series. another point that i liked this anime than other popular animes such as Bleach is that it has an ending. this anime is quite long but its well worth it. some reviewers (read more)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an anime like none other. It's got a great story, good action and characters you'll grow to love. The main plot is about two brothers trying to get their real bodys back. On the way they will face strong and dangerous foes.

Story: I gave storyline an Excellent because the storyline really stands out. It's one of those that includes lots of twists and turns. It's also one of those that you can watch over and over, and not get bored. The storyline starts of slow like a lot of other animes, but as it progresses (read more)
