    Is it any good?

    I happened to catch the first two episodes on Adult Swim and it doesn't seem too shabby.

    I thought it was pretty good, the storyline gets better towards the middle and the end.

    Make sure you don't missed the earlier episodes though, because they all sort of come together in the end.

    I did, and it's been sitting in Adelaide South Australia for the past three weeks waiting for the boat. I can still back out. :o

    It seems kind of like Slayers. Extremely goofy one second, then completely dramatic and serious the next. That's the one huge beef I had with Slayers.

    I don't think they aired it (dubbed in English) on any cable/sat tv stations

    I bought them all when Stuf was giving them away.

    The dub is absolutely terrible, and I'm a person that generally likes them. I don't think it was aired on any channel.

    The CN vocalists for FMA are fantastic for this series (excluding al's 'little boy' voice during the flashbacks). And yes it's good you should've been watching since January.. there are some serious twists and some bs filler episodes, be sure not to miss the drama.
