difference between manga and anime?
is there any? is the manga a continuation of the anime similar to tenjou tenge or is it something like black cat where it changed key things. just want to see if the manga is worth reading
there should be a sticky answering this question... it seems to come up a lot.
anyway, first up: anime - in most cases - is an adaptation of the manga, not the other way around. then, you might want to check out:
There are a lot differences between each versions of FMA, already in the beginning. While some part of the story is in the manga in the present, in the anime it's a flashback of the past.
echoblaze-san, I'm not sure whether anyone would like to go through...4 different threads for only one simple question. I mean, if the person hadn't bothered to search for these threads already but open up another thread....(but I have to admit that it isn't too easy to find threads with such specific question, since there would be results that wouldn't help)
while the manga was being published, the anime was already being planned and produced. this made for some key differences in between manga and anime due to a alck of manga material to base the anime off. this was due to enix being a monthly thing.
due to this the anime ends at around the 6th or 7th tankoban (anthology of chapters).
some key differences were:-most of the story was told in a flashback form (A)
-some events, such as when al and ed had found these 'ghosts' in a village and discovered that they were puppets being controlled by aqn old man in memory of his love, didn't happen in the manga.
there are more, but just search "FMA" on wikipedia and scroll down.
