Original Full Achemist animation looks better than Brotherhood?
Posted 8/14/13
I have finished watching the original full metal alchemist for the third time over the course of my life and now I am finally getting around to watching Brotherhood. I know the animation is not the end all be all, but a few things, to me anyway, look better in the original and I am curious if other people think the same. For example, Rose looks flat in Brotherhood. Her colors, her body movements, her hair, she looked much more fluid and believable in the original. That is really the only thing that is striking me about the animation. Besides that, everything else is above and beyond the original. The alchemy especially looks breathtaking and incredible.

Just some characters and objects look so flat and lifeless compared to the original. Another example is the Chimera in the third episode. It looks so much worse than the original anime; not the actual design, just the animation. Does anyone notice this or am I just going crazy?

Rose is anything but flat first and foremost, haha.

But with rise that little arc was not developed in a way to be super important.

If say both are the same really.

I noticed it differently. Brotherhood has a better color pallet in my opinion. Other than that, the animation is pretty damn similar. :/
Wait till you get further in the series, though. Any problems you have will not exist after the first few episodes. They just went fast for the previously animated material for the sake of the audiences. God the animation gets incredible later on.

Argh! I've never watched either one of the FMA animes, though I've read the manga fully more than twice.

Should I start on the original (which I know changes the story) or just watch Brotherhood?

Just watch Brotherhood. The original is okay, but the ending is atrocious. Also, the Shamballa movie is one of the worst things ever in the franchise, IMO. XD

Thanks for the advice, but I think your comment kinda backfired 'cause now I want to see the original just to see how bad the ending and movie is XD

So I'll watch both, starting with the original, then moving on to familiar territory! Thanks (:

Watch the original first. Brotherhood is overrated XD Check Brotherhood out afterwards if you want too. It's still good.

Watch both. It is cool to see the differences in story that each one takes. For example, in the original, Shou Tucker is Edward's teacher to prepare for the alchemy exam, but in Brotherhood, he has already taken the exam when he meets Tucker. That is just a very small example.

I think they were trying to get the art closer to the manga. The animations seems on par otherwise in my opinion.

I love both. FMA is sad and tragic though does kinda not make sense at the last few episodes and the ending was not satisfying and the movie was pretty cool for continuing the story but not really good and also stupid cause hitler... Brotherhood on the other hand was epic and amazing and really satisfying to watch. So yeah brotherhood is better XD
