Pretty much just wondering what the difference is between Full Metal Alchemist and Full Metal Brotherhood. I can't tell if brotherhood is a sequel, the same story just told abit different, or what it is?

Recently watched the original series on NEtflix and absolutely loved it. If brotherhood isn't the sequel what is, if anything? Looks like there are some movies based off it available on netflix but they are not watch it now.

Full Metal diverges completely from the manga about half way through, while Brotherhood follows the manga pretty tightly.

Fullmetal Alchemist is the first series produced, and was made while the manga was ongoing. Because anime episodes are produced faster than manga chapters, the anime quickly outpaced the story of the manga it is based on. Thus the first series changes the original story into what is called a filler ending. It is not the canonical ending of the series.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood was produced much later and is a direct retelling of the manga story. About the first 20 episodes will cover materiel you've already seen and then it diverges drastically.

The movie, conqueror of shambala, is base don the filler ending of the first series and has no connection to the manga.

I wouldn't skip any episodes of brotherhood to try and start where the first FMA left off. Some events take place differently and there are no fillers. The openings and endings are pretty good too. Enjoy.

Also, Brotherhood is superior in pretty much every way I can think of. The VAing, the art, the music, the story, the pacing, etc. I can't think of a single thing I liked more in FMA, and I wasn't even aware that it wasn't following the manga at the time I watched it.

Odd. I found all the materiel that was covered in both to be a superior presentation in the first series. The quick pace of the second series did injustice to those two very important scenes.

Was that... the ghost one?

I haven't actually finished Brotherhood yet--can you clarify with spoiler tags? I should be well passed the point at which the manga and anime diverge completely at this point.

I'm guessing you mean Nina and Hughes?

You are correct with your guess. I felt both scenes were performed much better in the original series.

Yeah, first it was Mustang's men recording Mustang's work day for the military IA, then Mustang orders his men to find Havoc a date since Mustang was taking all of Havoc's GFs, Armstrong trying to hook Havoc up with the Major's younger sister, then the phantom warehouse and "murder" investigation.

On the one hand, I can definitely see your argument.

On the other, I don't trust myself to actually be able to judge Brotherhood. I hadn't read the manga when I watched the first FMA, so those events were complete surprises to me. That definitely elicited an emotional response. With Brotherhood, I still had an emotional response that I'll admit was smaller.

But, at the same time, my unequal experiences means I can't accurately judge. For all I know, I might have had a stronger response to Brotherhood, had I not known the events were imminent.

Personally, the "Jeremiah was a bullfrog" reference sealed it for me.

I really like the "I think we should bring back mom." It just invalidates everything they did, and shows that he learned nothing.

The Briggs soldier drive-thru and the childhood stew clip were the best ones for me.

"Let's look at the door" was where I really started to lose it and giggle uncontrollably.

Some of those outtakes were gold. **** doo and the last **** yeah!" are some examples.

It reminded me that I didn't really like the dub for brotherhood though. It just felt wrong.

Okay, but I burst out laughing when they said they should bring their mom back.
