I liked the ending of the 2003 anime more, because I like bittersweet, and tragedy endings, in which the manga for Elfen Lied did so freaking well, so because of Elfen Lied I like sad or bittersweet endings now, which makes it feel more complete in my opinion.

This. This is why 2003 is better IMO.

I love the thing from the manga where... the person was accused of the thing but didn't do it and Roy is awesome, no spoiler.
But the homunculi. Lust.

Also. Also. to people saying what they're saying about the ending... Have you seen Conqueror of Shamballa, though? It comes after the end of the 2003 series and...


... so this one time, Toonami showed Conqueror of Shamballa and half the people watching it had never seen the 2003 series, and they were so confused, and it was pretty funny to read those tweets about it.

I'm biased because the 2003 series was my life when I was in high school, but that bit about the homunculi... yeah. Also the kid one. Different kid one than in Brotherhood.


.... I need to rewatch 2003 actually. I'm on such a nostalgia kick now, I'm watching Chrono Crusade right now.

You know, though. Actually. If you like things like Chrono Crusade more than things like Naruto and Fairy Tail, you'll like 2003 better. If you like things like Naruto and Fairy Tail better, you'll probably like Brotherhood better. That's a good litmus test.

I prefer Brotherhood. To me, FMA feels all over the place and "filler-esque," mostly in reference to FMA having a tendency to drift off and "get lost" in arcs. I easily notice when writers are stalling for manga content, in general. In FMA's case, I also caught onto the shift in writing when the original ending began to be implemented, which I find a bit disorienting.

Brotherhood seems much more organized and straight-forward. Also, as a bonus, the art and animation are more polished.

I watched both in their entirety recently. Both are equally good for entirely different reasons. 2003 was a mindfuck series that loved to abuse Ed. 2009 is a typical shonen story. They are both special in their own ways though. Watch both. 2003 first though...
