    I don't understand why people think the manga is slowing down... It's carefully paced at all times... Also, someone tell me chapter 64 isn't completely scanlated because if it ends when Ed gets thrown on his butt, I'm going to be mad...

    I didn't say the manga was bad. Nor that it's not incredible. Which it is. I just think without a bit action for a while, it's not as interesting. Though maybe I'm just an action-fighting scene addict. xD

    Exactly. I completely agree. I don't know about anyone else but I can feel the suspense rising so much right now. I don't check the FMA forums as often as I would like to so forgive me if this has been asked before: Is there any word on a full scanlation of chapter 64? And if so can I get a link pleeeeease?

    In my opinion the anime didn't have that much fighting either. It wasn't until the end that we got a bunch of fights, but they weren't that great either. Of course there were still some good fights like Ed vs Greed and Ed/Al vs those other guys in armor.

    The manga is still developing and there have been plenty of awesome fights...

    HOWEVER.

    It doesn't matter if it's FMA or anything else. Fights always look better in animes. For some reason actually seeing them fighting beats the hell out of seeing it panel by panel.

    Still...I preffer the manga.

The movie was quite good, to me, that is, and I remember there was this question about Germany that I only knew because I watched the FMA movie, but yeah...anyways, I think the anime was good as an anime. It covered some important things and the animation was good.

    The manga stands well on its own, as does the anime. I liked them both, so I'm undecided. XD
    I agree with Silver Nightingale.
    Anime is good as an anime. FMA was the second manga i ever read and it's the reason I started to like japanese manga and anime. That time, i thought wow! what a great manga. I laugh my ass off when Ed pissed of when he was told small. Then my friend give me FMA anime. Back then I said it won't be as good as manga. The anime story is stray form the manga storyline. But when i watch the anime. I know i was wrong. Anime is sad but there's another thing. Its very beautiful with very beautiful ending. Another thing is that the dialogs are so damn good. Very unique story. I haven't see the movie. I really want to see it.

    I started the manga first but eventually finished the anime first since the manga isnt even completed yet as of now.

    I stopped the manga mid-way cause of the anime, and the anime's ending kind of stopped FMA for me.

    But then something urged me to download the later chapters and made me read on. I realized then what a waste it was that the anime had ended FMA officially in a way for some people...because the manga's story line is more...uh, fit? it kind of gives us the sense that the plot was planned out. While wacthing the anime, i couldnt help but notice the forcefully fit pieces of the story by the animators who were racing against time in thinking of a totally new plot for this series.

    The anime is a remarkable work. One of the best animations out there. But animators should just wait to animate something until the series is finished to refrain from stuff ending up like a double-sided ending or a filler episode filled series like NARUTO. (sobs)

    The anime's ending was bugging me though. If I never got to watch the movie, i would have gone ballistic over the "uh, its over?" effect of its ending! or maybe its just cause I watched the dubbed version...such emotionless/awkward voices. o_0 The japanese voice acting made me literally ROFL. (especially when ed rants about his heigh xD)

    Anyway, the manga has me completely hooked on to it right now, and I can't wait for its ending!

    the anime was good in that it was well developed and i also really liked the fact that it deviated from the plot of the manga. the ending too in that it didnt really leave you hanging, like many anime whose counterpart manga hasnt ended yet (ed and al ended up okay, just not what i wished would have happened)

    however, as good as the anime was, i dont think it quite matches up to the manga. the manga is really bringing in all the characters that the anime didnt quite explain. for example, hohenheim and ed/al's sensei. though the anime explained about their past, it didnt do a complete job. the manga is now doing that and doing more. because the manga isnt completed, arakawa-sensei can introduce more characters, like the latest major general, and add more twists and turns.

    doesn't that always happen? i liked the anime for its action, and a few philosophical lines, but overall, like you said, it doesn't compare, so we shouldn't compare them. the manga's the manga, its obviously more well developed and dives in deeper to the depths of the characters while exploring their pasts and futures. though the anime didn't do a COMPLETE job, it did a fine job by itself, yes? xD

    well, yes. generally the anime cant compare with the manga (i cant think of any exceptions if there ARE any) and yes, i'll give you that much, i think the FMA anime is a lot better than most anime i've seen XD

    Indeed, much better. Plus, I love the Soundtracks. w/o the anime, there would be no soundtrack.
