    Just finished watching the DVD, I thought it was pretty good. What did anyone else who've seen it think? If your a fan of the series this is a must watch.

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty good. I thought it ended the series well. People were complaining about the ending of the series, but if people are still dissatisfied after seeing this movie, it's best if they just stick with fan fics.

    The series would have been worthless to me if not for the movie. I still wasn't 100% pleased with the movie ending, but it beat the shit out of the series ending.

    The series and movie seriously lacked romance. Major downfall.

    it was good along with the series, but the only problem is winry. they put her in there but never establish the relationship that was required.

    Yet you like Ouran? I hope you're kidding. Ouran has the weakest "romance" I've seen yet and it isn't even funny.

    FMA's greatest strength is in it's deep and detailed story as well as the profound relationship between Ed and Al. The writers did a good job establishing an entire universe and lore to go with it.

    If you've read the ouran thread, you'd see that I was fairly unhappy with the ending.

    I hope that answers your question. Al and Ed is all well and good, but they neglected Winry bigtime.

    That series was a huge waste of time.

    Ed had much bigger things to worry about than Winry. I agree it was sad they never got together but it's understandable. At least he didn't end up with Noah. :o

    Damn D, you burned that series fast. A year ago I had to wait a week between episodes for CN to air them.

    lmao FMA wasn't about the romance. The winry relationship that was included was fine. It was about Ed and Al's quest and inner conflict, and to a lesser extent, the homunculi's own desires.

    i understand the series is good anw well with the story of the lifes of the two boys, but winry is also a big part in their lifes. the creators established a background between ed and winry that would suggest a much needed relationship.

    FMA is also blessed with a phenomenal score. I've been listening to it weekly since the series finished on Cartoon Network.

    When I started watching this series the occasional zaniness and jokes kind of bothered me. As if they didn't know whether they wanted it to be a comedy or a drama. The same way I felt about Slayers.

    Now that I've seen the entire thing it's nice that the story has the occasional light moments, because outside of that it's a very dark and tragic story.

    It works a lot better here than it does for Slayers IMO.

    definitely. This seriously boosted the quality of FMA. like, WAYYY high.


    i didn't like the comedy either. thought it was retarded, detracted from the series.
