Am I the ONLY person that liked FMA for the PLOT?
"HARDCORE" anime fans because of the weeaboo shit thats associated with it and weeaboos live it because its a shounen show with OMG KAWAII characters
(before I state my opinion. I know it has lots of filler, weird pace, and anoyying filler)
Am I the only person that liked its plot? I loved how to dealt with topics like morality, racism, and the abuse of power. I liked just how epic it was. It had a wide cast of characters and (for the most part, with exeption) most of them were deeper than most "OMGLOL IM JUST HERE" shit that you see in most shoujen.
That and its the ONLY shoujen that I know of that actually ENDS.
tl;dr I THINK IM TURNING SHOUJANESE SO THAT MEANS I AM A HUGE FAGGOT
I THOUGHT FMA WAS AWESOME. PRETTY MUCH A TOP 10 ANIME.
> tl;dr I THINK IM TURNING SHOUJANESE SO THAT MEANS I AM A HUGE FAGGOT
should be SHOUNENESE
I enjoyed the plot as well,too bad it gets a bit far fetched towards the end.
Mango was better really.
But where is the OMG KAWAII? I mean, Ed's a pretty cool guy and all, but I still don't see how he got so many rabid fangirls...
I didn't like it. The only character I felt anything for died (Hughes ;_;) and I lost all interest. The whole alchemy thing was dumb, and the underlying themes were poorly presented.
he's an amputee. Chicks love amputees, especially well-built ones with ponytails
I liked it for the same reasons. It's not epic and praise-worthy for me, but I still liked it.
I enjoyed overall. One of the few times where an anime's separation from the manga did it well.
manga still going...
I didn't like the ending, personally.
It was... anti-climatic.
Whenever I try to watch it again, I just get bored.
I enjoyed it the first time, but it lost some appeal for me, personally.
I enjoy the manga, however, much more. I just hope it ends... you know... WELL.
Sorry, its 3:00 in the morning and I am using that as an excuse for my spell-fu being weak.
I like it. Its a refreshing change of pace from filler.
BECAUSE HE IS SOO SILLY AND RANDOM OMG LOL HE IS ALL INSECURE ABOUT HIS SIZE XD
Srsly, you add some over exagurated expressions and "comedic" super deformity and fangirls will be all over it like trolls on NGE
Ending was pretty dumb but everything else was great.
movie was win. They fought nazi's. Nazi's covered in black goop.
Can't argue with that. He's like a gay, short, less win version of indiana jones. if indiana jones wanted to fuck his brother.
Troll. No one in their right minds would actually take shoehorning an ending onto a ongoing manga and start raving about it being OMG BEST PLOT EVER.
That's why I'm still waiting for how the end goes.
I just liked the somewhat scientific aspects of it.
Its not OMG BEST PLOT EVER
However I do consider it underrated.
LOL STRAW MAN
how is FMA underrated? wat wat.
I liked the plot till episode 40 or something.
I don't know why but the rest of the series was pretty boring for me, also filler ending with jews.
I'm reading the manga right now.
Shoujen? Is that like Shounen and Shoujo combined?
Anyways it sucked. The manga might be good but it's going to be long.
And if you want a good shounen that ends, depending on your tastes you might want to look into either Busou Renkin, Black Cat, Darker Than Black, Eureka Seven, Houshin Engi, Parasyte (well, that's more like Seinen), or Kenshin.
The plot is
Everyone (that I talk to anyway) only sees the fanboys and not the anime
its 3:00 in the morning MY SPELL-FU IS WEAK
But anyway I'll look into those. I have been hearing good things about Eureka 7
I liked the allegorical concepts of the issues of scientific progress over the ideals and morals in which they get intertwined and get blurred up. Which was one of the reasons I liked it at first. But what I hated was the GOD DAM MONOLOGUING! I mean I can see that you are in fact a fucking sin of god now stop explaining every fact about your evilness. Plus I didn't like the anime ended without a conclusive ending towards that theme (or maybe I missed it in the movie)
I like the Yugioh manga and thought it ended well enough.
Don't ask me about the sequels, though.
Also liked The Law of Ueki.
The story was pretty cool, even if filler completely fucked up the pacing. The plot sort of exploded with awesome towards the end.
I liked the Anime's Sloth. It's always a nice, if somewhat cliche, idea to have a villain be created out of a main character's loved one.
Manga Sloth is just some boring hulk from what we've seen so far.
in b4 shitstrom
Never read the manga. And now I am afraid to because incomplete manga with a main plot makes me want to kill puppes.
So is it worth it?
You should read the manga if it ever finishes because Hoenheim's story is completely different, Dante is anime only and "Homunculus" (Father) is manga only.
Plots diverge substantially between anime and manga because there probably wasn't enough existing material when the anime and movies were made so they had to be... ORIGINAL!
Same bag as Hellsing?
Yeah, but some bits of the FMA anime were good.
Hellsing anime was TRIPE before the OVAs.
>>10247746 Never read the manga
It's the best current shonen, but that's not saying much, considering its competition.
>>10247414 (before I state my opinion. I know it has lots of filler,
Since fucking when? Other than things like Armstrong family episode, etc.
FMA beats EVA for best anime series of all time
You best be jocking nigger
FMA is seinen. Young King Ours is a seinen magazine, FMA is published in it. that is all.
Not a troll, but I can't really be bothered to explain why since it would just invoke the brainless 4chan hivemind shitposting.
Short version: the manga isn't very good, at all
can't really call any part of FMA's anime filler, since it was never intended to play out like the manga in the first place.
Everything after Greed is different from manga since manga was still going at the time
It depends on your fine definition. I am expecting trolls so I am using the worst possable definition. Meaning that everything that isn't directly related to the outcome of the final episode is filler. Even Hughes death.
Also you post a potential shitstorm starter so I obligatory call you a troll.
filler is filler, dumbshit
No other manga, and maybe no other book, on the bookshelf will leave you thinking like Fullmetal Alchemist.
Then maybe it's time you broadened your horizon
I'm a faggot, I didn't watch FMA nor FMP (yes I know it's different). I enjoyed Busou Renkin... will I enjoy FMA?
You can't call the entire second half of a series filler dipshit. It's not filler at that point, not to mention the noticeable plot differences in the first half when compared to the anime.
No, FMA is published in Monthly Shonen Gangan. It's shonen.
What the fuck?
I could've sworn it was YKO.
Nope. YKO has Hellsing and had Trigun.
FMA is Monthly Shonen Gangan. Look it up.
I liked FMA but it's get weird in the end of the series and even weireder in the end of the movie, seriously the movie was somehow dissapointing, perhaps a good plot for any othrer anime but somehow too unrelated to the original FMA...
and after what happened in the end the fact that Winry said "This time he won't make me wait" made my eyes wet, seriously Ed acted liked a total asshole... can't we have a good ol' happy ending?
FMA was extremely well written. Except for the last two episodes and the movie. Ed should never have met Hitler.
no, because it's fucking japan, this is their means of exporting misery. In short, Japan wants you to despair.
When should I watch the OVA's + Movie? After the 51 episodes?
He never met Hitler. He met some upper echeleon Nazis, but not Hitler.
I loved it up until the shitty alternate universe crap, but first half was epic
OVA is the sum of all the episods with some voice over, movie is the sequel
I hate it because everyone thinks it invented Alchemy.
Nobody thinks that.
I enjoyed it thoroughly for the plot. Greatest action shounen ever.
"BURSOOOO RENKIN!? ALCHEMY!? THEY'RE JUST RIPPING OFF FMA! ED'S SO KAWAAAIIIII DESUUUU NE EYE DONE DRAWED A PICHOOR OR HIM AND AL KISSING CAUSE IT'S SCHOOOO AWESOME!"
waaah I hate popular things
