Worth checking out then?

I only read the first three and they were enjoyable quick reads but they are also pretty forgettable overall.

Hello everyone! I have small question... Maybe somebody knows what Envy's real name is? I've read rumours that it's William (but it sounds too strange for me )... However, I've heard few years ago that his name was something starting with 'H' letter (similar to Hohenheim probably). I'd love to know if his name has been ever announced officialy (in anime/manga/guide books) and if yes then what's it.
Thank you all in advance for help~!

Not in the manga, no. He's just Envy, really...

Quick question. Watching the original series for the first time, and i was wondering at what volume of the manga does the anime stop at, and when does the anime original material kick in?

If possible, a spoiler free answer please.

It is different from the very beginning but it completely diverges after Vol. 7 of the manga so Vol. 8 introduces characters that never appear in the anime.

It's a little harder to pinpoint exactly where the anime diverges. I would say they start adding a lot more of their own things after episode 25. But episode 33 sort of happens in the manga (just very differently).

I hope that helps clear things up.

So basically, the events that happen after volume 08 of the manga, aren't animated in the original tv series?

Basically the 2nd half of the first chapter in Vol 8 (chapter 30) is never animated by the anime and everything after that.

But again I want to point out that although the anime sort of covers early chapters in the manga they cover them in their own way.

Does anyone know why they are making this second season? I had heard rumors, but I didn't believe them until I saw this thread moved into the Current Series segment.
I know that the first season's end and the movie's end kind of bite. I always resented how both endings left Winry out in the cold and alone.
From what I've read about summaries of these past few episodes. Mostly they have rehashed old ground with a few twists, with the exception of the first episode.

I just don't see the point of having a whole new season if they just have the same sadist twists. Have there been any official statements about why they decided to make this series? let alone make it as if the first season never existed.
I may be all for this as long as Rose doesn't get gang raped, and Martel comes back and survives for longer. I always thought she was a seriously cool and sexy character. Yet she still got the same lame death as she did in the manga. Though in the anime she did live a tad longer.
I had thought that they were going to more closely follow the manga story, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I tried wikipedia and AnimeNews.com but neither site really has much information at all about this new series. I'm just getting Shuffle! flashbacks. They had a second season, but just did the same depressing stuff.

They are making this new series because it follows the original manga. The manga and the 1st anime are very different even if they start out somewhat similar at first.

Trust me it is not just going to be a rehash! and I wouldn't worry about Winry.

Well they are not following it exactly but they are following it way more faithfully than the 1st series did even taking direct frames from the manga.

Rose will not be gangraped in this series, since that only occurs in the first anime. The Manga, and presumably the second anime gives Rose a happy ending.

The manga hasn't ended yet, therefore we don't really know if Rose will have a happy ending or not...

Well...

Spoiler for Rose's fate in the First animated FMA:


That's probably what they were talking about.

And because of that traumatizing experience she couldn't speak anymore.

hrrm i guess that makes sense,i always though the reason why rose became the way she was because of the incident at the openning of the series, and that through her work through the orphanage at teh end during the truamatic war she became mute but continued to work as relief worker/matron, and took the child as her own. Because she never really says that the baby is biologically hers which makes me question the genetic relationship

Okay what I can remember off the top of my head. Putting this behind spoiler cut these go up to episode 4. I also included some lines in the manga that I really like that were cut from this anime.

Spoiler:


There might be more but this is what I can think of off the top of my head
