Which do you think is better and why.

Brotherhood, it follows the manga and tells a better story,

Both are really good, but Brotherhood wins hands down.

IMHO, I am not even sure I can call it close. Brotherhood is awesome. I think the main thing is the ending for me. The original left me with a bad taste. Brotherhood is complete in so many ways.

I would definitely have to say Brotherhood, the storyline is much more intense and a lot more detailed, not to mention the animation style looks absolutely fantastic and really sets off the whole series well

FMA Brotherhood. Better storyline I think, better animation style, and it actually got a proper boxset release in the UK. FMA is good but I'm not buying 13 volumes that only have 3 or 4 eps on each one. That's a complete ripoff.

To me they are both equally good. Brotherhood had a better storyline and better protagionists. FMA on the other hand was new and had way better antagonists.

For me, nostalgia makes the gap between the two closer than it should be. However, Brotherhood did a better job of developing characters.

They are both good shows, but I like Brotherhood better, I think there is more depth it the storyline.

I echo the general sentiment that although both are fine shows, Brotherhood was more enjoyable.

I actually prefer the original FMA a tiiiny bit more than FMAB. I liked the way it handled the stuff Brotherhood did and where the story went.
It had a darker tone and the music was better in my opinion. Brotherhood is still amazing in story and music!
The original beats it by a hair for me.

I think it's partly just nostalgia, but I marginally preferred the original FMA. I also liked its darker tone. I mean there was a lot of heavy stuff - it made sense for it to be pretty grim sometimes.

Brotherhood hands down
