My all-time favorite anime series. One of the few I actually got in to.
The original series was amazing, and brotherhood is also amazing. It's hard to decide which I like better, but the storyline and use of homunculus in Brotherhood was pretty cool, and the ends are very different, as well.
Then of course you have to consider with the original series whether you ended on episode 51 or with the movie. I, personally, loved the movie! But the series was better halted at ep 51 with the brothers separated, leaving a lot to the imagination.
The conclusion of brotherhood, I think, was very intriguing. But the fact that Wrath and Pride were switched, and Izumi's son is now God kind of tripped me out at first. And changing that whole aspect of the story really makes the two very unique from each-other as far as the story being told.
Still, I'm a huge fan of both series. What do you guys think? Any fans out there?
