Don't you mean up to episode 39?

That's what I thought too but, and I just double checked, I only saw season one and two of Brotherhood. It might just be that I can't find it but in any case it looks like 42 dubbed is not up yet.

Not Impressed By FMA Brotherhood

Well, I was trying to assess Fate Zero, and decided that for the first few episodes, that it’s easily the best series that I’ve seen in months, if not years. But then I attempted to give it a ranking in regard to wider anime history or even out of the anime in the last ten years, and asked myself whether it really beats such gems as the original Full Metal Alchemist. The answer was a straight no, since while Fate Zero appears to be promising in regard to character development and drama, it still has yet to introduce the sort of major philosophical themes that were present in Full Metal Alchemist or even the later portion of Trigun.

Then I asked whether it surpassed the 2009 Full Metal Alchemist series, and decided that it definitely had the potential to do as such. Why? Because, like the first three episodes of Fate Zero, in the entire 37 episode run that I watched, it covers no major ideological themes that leave you thinking about them after you’ve finished watching it.

The problem with FMA Brotherhood, and this has been mentioned before, is that it indulges in too many shonen clichés, while simultaneously being to lighthearted to inspire a strong emotional response. So it’s nice and happy for those who thought that the 2003 series had too much “angst” (read: realistic character reactions and drama), but then again, the fiction industry is oversaturated with anime that makes people happy but does little else. Thus the first FMA series earns points just from straying from that cliché, and actually attempting to inspire some level of emotional catharsis via tragedy.

I don’t dislike Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood; I’m obligated to like it to even a small extent due to my status as an FMA fan, but I certainly don’t believe that it’s better than the phenomenal 2003 series, or that it earns its number 2 place on MyAnimeList. That spot should be reserved for works such as Grave of the Fireflies or Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen/Trust and Betrayal, works that actually inspire the viewer to think rather than to gawk at pretty action scenes.

After watching Brotherhood, I found myself less inclined to go ahead and finish the first FMA.

Um, I'm pretty sure this should go on the Fate/Zero and FMA threads.

As for Fate/Zero, well it's a prequel and naturally all the ideological stuff was already covered in the original story so it probably doesn't feel the need to start off with any proper examination. It does however introduce us to some of Kiritsugu's ideals but you probably didn't noticed because it seemed like more a look into his character, rather than his philosophy. In any case it's going to be a little thin on the philosophy anyway since right now the story is just establishing the characters and their chess making. It's just a difference in writing style.

You dont love FMA:B ......................theres something wrong with you???

I watched FMA years ago and i found most of it boring and uninteresting, but at that time i only recently began to like anime so that could have something to do with it bt i highly doubt it..

Then i finnaly decided to download FMA:B a couple of months ago (i kept away from it since the 1st season sucked) and i absolutely loved it, Great fight scenes, Whole new characters (well original characters from the manga) and lets not forget that last fight with that flask thingy. Oh and to top it all off mustang finding out who killed Hughes now that sent chills down my spine

-- Angst isn't the only way to depict character emotion and emotional catharsis; it's just one
-- Cliches aren't bad just because they are cliche
-- Comparing the philosophical underpinnings of a series that only aired 3 episodes vs a completed one or just quality overall doesn't seem fair unless you compare first 3 episodes vs 3 episdes. If you were doing that, then sorry.
-- What are exactly these so called philosophical themes?

Anyhow, it's nice that you cared to share these thoughts, but these things are bit too specific to warrant their own thread IMO. Cool tale, my friend, I guess...

Don't loose heart. There are a few sane individuals out there who thought the original FMA adaptation was far superior to the generic shonen trash Brotherhood, precisely because it decided to deviate from the author's generic manga. We may be few, but remember, shows being uber popular doesn't really mean anything when they're all Jump/Shonen series at the top of popularity lists!

That said, this post/discussion belongs in the Full Metal Alchemist sub-forum.
