Just as the title and description says, feel free to discuss anything to do with the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood 2009 anime series. You can also discuss the Sacred Star of Milos movie here if you wish. This discussion thread is ONLY for the 2009 anime and the Sacred Star of Milos movie. Do not discuss the 2003 anime or the Conqueror of Shamballa movie here.

You can also ask questions, talk about things regarding the 2009 anime and its movie, etc.

Happy posting!

So, any fans still around? Hopefully I'm not the only one still enjoying the anime!

I just finished watching FMA Brotherhood yesterday and it was still just as amazing as I remembered it. Has anyone else revisited this great anime recently as well?

I revisited it somewhat recently when my brother was watching it for the first time. It's easily in my top 5 favorite anime.
I really enjoyed it from the start, but the scene where Mustang fights Lust is when my hype hit the ceiling and stayed there until the very end of the series.

Cool Yup, that scene was pretty cool seeing Mustang going all out.

It was a win. It's soundtrack wasn't on par with the first series', but everything else worked astoundingly.

This show is definitely the GOAT as everything was just clicking on all cylinders. It helps that its popularity was established with the original series so that it could get 64 episodes to work with. It's just pure Hiromu Arakawa awesomeness from start to finish as that story is just amazing while the upgrade in animation quality really does wonders for this show. I'm certainly glad that Broherhood came out as it definitely was needed and deserved. But in particular, there was Greed in this show that totally stole the spotlight considering, and then the ending is absolutely perfect.

Definitely the best anime of all time. Arakawa did a fantastic job of setting things up and tying it all together for a finale of epic proportions and oh the ending was so beautiful it made me cry so hard. Truly a classic series

Would have preferred if they kept the art style similarly to the first FMA series. The art style fits the manga but felt the translation to screen was a bit off :/

This is the series that I can't help but watch over and over again. It's such a classic now to me, and I wish that more people talked about instead of just current anime.

I hope it goes down in anime history as one the the greatest animes ever, next to Cowboy Bebop and a few others.

Its already one of if not the greatest anime in history as evidenced by its near the top rankings and high ratings on every anime database

Maybe for the series to win more awards? I know the manga has won many prestigious prizes.

Yes aside from the manga winning multiple coveted awards, Brotherhood itself set the standard for an anime series very much faithful to the original manga while maintaining that same level of greatness that made FMA such a beloved classic for so many fans

I agree with this.

However, I still think they should have adapted the art style like they did with the original series. The art style worked brilliantly in the manga, but it felt strange on the screen, but maybe its just me?

Yes while you are right that Studio Bones wasn't quite able to replicate the manga's brilliant art style, They more than make up for it with fluidly choreographed fight scenes, solid pacing, riveting and compellingly epic storytelling coupled perfectly with a beautiful and emotional ending

Words are not enough to describe just how great this series is in particular. It's a truly wonderful tale that caters to every anime fan. Arakawa-sensei is a total prodigy and can definitely be compared to God Eiichiro Oda
