Full Metal Alchemist: Like it?

I think Full Metal Alchemist is excellent and hope that the series progresses as wonderfully as it began. Studio Bones is quite something, in my opinion... they're projects seem to have a great deal of depth and maturity. To me, while FMA is on the surface a "kiddy" anime, the subjects they raise are quite profound... and unabashedly addressed without pat moralizing.

Perhaps it's because sometimes Ed and Al's relationship reminds me of my relationship with my brother, but I find this show very touching.

Thoughts?

Anybody else like this?

I'm absolutely in love with it..... although it doesn't contain as much action as something like naruto or maybe hunter X hunter, the feel of it is really pleasant..... I love the way the two brothers care for each other.....

the comics of it is real funny too.... and on top of that they manage to balance that with the sad parts like when their mother died.......

don't really know how to explain it but its balance is really well done....
besides... i think edward is kinda cute

I love it all they way! I specially like the character Alphonse, mostly because of his awkward design.

I like it enough to put it on my Good Anime List, but I'm not saving it to CD.

I don't know why I like it. Its like a roller coaster, it doesn't stay on the bad stuff to long and moves to the happy parts without leaving a lot of questions.
I have to save it to CD. My hard drive is so small, so small......

hahahaha.... I understand completely what you mean... my HD is really small as well especially with all that anime that I'm downloading.... I now have a small collection of about 150 CDs of anime and its still going....

Yeah, I like this anime.

I just got drawn into the first episode right at the end. Really made me want to continue watching. Although I thought the latest episode was good, not great...

In the past couple couple of months this is definately my favorite anime. And like someone had mentioned before, besides the action, I love that relationship between the two brothers.

I've seen 4 episodes so far, and I can say I like it.

For some reason though I haven't been able to "marathon" it
very well (ie. so far each time I watched it, I've watched just
one episode and moved on to something else), which is a bid odd,
but maybe that'll improve later on.

Also... the current OP and ED are GREAT! Really nice music...

Yea, this anime is one of the best i've seen. The anime itself has a great storyline and i found that it isn't as predictable as other anime. Has some great twists which i hadn't guessed would happen. Hope it keeps being subbed.

Yea thats true although I expect it to start moving very soon. I mean, starting to get into a real saga.

I love FMA too ^^

I got hooked to it back then when TW released the 1st chapter of the manga (which's very different from the anime). It has surpassed my expectations.

I wanna see more of Scar
