    FMA wasn't dark - it was sweet and loving for most of the part.
    Berserker.. well, it's not dark either - it's just rampage and carnage for 35 volumes..
    Monster was dark, the supression you will die just by looking at that man - that he will make you die just by saying "Please kill yourself".
    D.Gray-Man is not dark.
    Battle Royale... a little less carnage than Berserker - I think that's dark..

    FMA is dark. Berserk was dark until recently. D.Gray-Man is only slightly dark. Not really.

    (Looking for the raws of a few FMA chapters... the HELL is with the "bean" insults?)

    "Haven Fall/Stay Night " is dark... damn, Shirou pwns Saber but gets pwned by Sakura...I loved that story, they should make anime from it, not from "Fate".

    Bean insult is everywhere...and in my opinion, it gets really boring. Like never ending haven-punch from Naru in Love Hina.

    ...It's "chibi". The hell? How can they mistranslate THAT?

    ...on the DGM note, maybe it is dark... I mean, torture devices and all, despite plenty of comedy... but then again, zombie-skeletons that wear the skin of humans is a bit creepy.

    True... a skeletal machnie wiggling its way into a corpse is not my cup of tea. All goos animes are dark lately, aren't they?

    As for the "bean" insults. Sometimes they call Ed "chibi", sometimes they call him "little bean" or something bean-realted. "Bean-Sprout" is a short joke, cuz let's face it, it is one puny plant, and beans are tiny. Calling him a bean is more abrasive than Chibi, form my understanding.

    No flatulence jokes please... beans and gas are too overrated lately.

    There's a couple of things that DGM has in common with FMA. For one, age, as was mentinoed before. Fifteen, fifteen. For another, the freakish arm. There's the factor of how an akuma is created, too, which can relate to the Homunculi, like it was mentioned before.
    And some people say Allen looks a little like Ed. Well, kinda, but that was before Hoshino-sensei changed her art style.



    In a general sense, the similarities are few, and very subtle.

    And Allen gets pissed for being called "bean sprout" liek Ed. *rolls eyes at predictability*

    At least Ed gets older...but he still a bean
    Making main character short and young is abused material - not only in FMA and DGM. Freaky eyes aren't nothing new. White hairs are everywhere. Getting mad about size appeares in most mangas.
    It's getting...boring.... or It's just me who gets to old.

    But maybe it's me who has some weird taste, since I considered Shirou as a pretty good main character.

    1) EVERYONE is fifteen in manga. I can name at least five other manga where that is the case.
    2) Wrong arm. I'd rather name similarities to Inuyasha, where Allen AND the freaky white-haired girly man lose left arms and instead use weird ones. Or Variante.
    3) Homunculi are created in a similar way to akuma? I thought akuma were zombies...
    4) No. Not at all.
    5) Allen is at least 10cm taller than Ed, and the names are different anyway (chibi and mame-otoko, compared to moyashi).
    6) As Kolox said, weird eyes and white hair are everywhere... EXCEPT FMA, oddly enough.
    7) Getting mad about size is normal. I used to, until I found friends shorter than me and discovered I'm the perfect height to be a J-pop idol. And there was this one guy who was really short and got shut into lockers and hated it too, and always got angry... good times. =P

    Somehow, D.Gray-Man takes these stereotypes and makes a GOOD manga. ^_^ It's sooooo good. It's really amazing. How does Hoshino-sensei do it~

    I was under the impression that there wasn't a drop of Japanese blood in you.

    Was I right?
