I think it's hard to choose. The apparent that anime strayed a lot from the manga's plotline, starting about halfway through the series, but in its own sense, the anime was well done. There was a plot and things were explained. 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
