I wouldn't call either of them 'better' than the other, since both have pro's and drawbacks.

Going to put a couple of differences:



I personally think both should be watched and held highly as different parts of the overall -verse.

the ending for the 2003 FMA was really boring in my opinion. I felt like Brotherhood had alot better plot progression towards the end. But it is definitely worth watching both.

I enjoyed 2003's antagonist far more than Brotherhood's, but I thought Brotherhood delivered a better overall experience.

Speaking of FMA, any word on when FMA will be available for streaming here on CR?


As far as i know, it's only announced but if i have to guess, it would be: fall 2016 or sometime in 2017. We'll just have to wait and see.

I loved the first series but the ending just cut short (expecting you to watch the movie) which was really jarring. Brotherhood seems like it was all planned start to finish and for that reason I'd say it's better. But I really like them both.

I enjoyed both. I watched the 2003 series before brotherhood and really liked it because of the darker atmosphere which coincides with the thought of alchemy and bringing people back from the dead better. They also made a movie to resolve the ending of the anime series where they are left separated. Brotherhood was fun to watch but, took a while for me to get used to after watching the 2003 series first.

I think both of them compliment each other very well. The 2003 version has a more consistent pace through the entire series, and it has better drama and character moments, while Brotherhood's first episodes were very rushed, but the rest of the series was perfection in my opinion. The story was a lot more coherent and epic in scale, the characters were still awesome, and the ending was way better, not only because it was the one in the manga but it was a lot more satisfying than that bittersweet ending that we got in the original adaptation.

I still prefer Brotherhood just a bit more, after all it's my favorite anime of all time, but the original series is great as well and it deserves to be watched by everybody just as much as Brotherhood.

I liked the character developement of 2003. It felt like you got to love and/or hate the participants and understood what they were feeling and why they did things..

I liked the completeness of the ending in brotherhood. I Thought it tied up loose ends better than 2003.

Both are worth watching!

FMA Brotherhood. Absolutely no doubt that FMA 2003 was absolute trash.

brotherhood is waaaay much better.

the 2003 one is not as thrilling and the end is a little disappointing.

they are really different. but both good.

I like the 2003 series a little more and the music was better in that series.
