    If this was some sort of continuation of the original FMA I would have been interested.

    I'll pick this up on DVD when they release season sets of the dub...so probably about 5 years from now, at the rate DVD releases seem to go. The original anime is excellent and holds up very well as its own story, but I'm looking forward to seeing the manga adapted.

    It is, its SIGNIFICANTLY better than the original, and I loved the original.

    Ed does, Al doesn't because his VA has grown up. He'll be returning for a different role though.

    I've been following the subs. It's an excellent series, I'm not familiar with the original or the manga so all I know is the show on its own merits. It's an awesome show, good mix of action humour and drama without any one part drowning the rest out.

    SoundwaveCA, this series follows the Manga. The original series branched off less than half way through, and is a COMPLETELY different story.

    Check it out, the first like... 10 episodes will be familiar to you, the rest, well... holy crap different!

    The reason for the branch off is like much anime in Japan, it was animated so fast it came out faster than the manga that was a weekly, and it had to branch off so they could have a decent Ending. I sometimes wish they would do this with many animes due to the amount of bad filler episodes they have, in order to give the manga time to catch up. Dragon Ball Kai for instance is Dragon Ball Z without the many filler episodes. It cuts the series almost in half, in the number of episodes.

    So would I be able to follow this if I haven't seen any of the original?

    Definitely, it starts off in the exact same place the original series starts. Both shows follow a path until a certain point then they completely branch off and become different stories. The story in this one is MUCH better than the first one.

    The Anime for the original was finished by the time I think.... volume 6 of the Manga came out in Japan. In this series, we're already past 15 for sure, probably later *needs to double check*

    Now, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't the manga still running? Wouldn't this new series then have a different ending then as well?

    Yes, the manga is still running, but I haven't gotten to it in some time.

    I've watched a good bit of the Brotherhood sub, and it starts off strong but in the end it falls flat on it's face, just like the original. It has tons of inaccuracies, and sure, it is darker but at times it tries too hard. I will admit it does Hughes character better, and the Greed arc was better(but this one made it waaay too short). I recommend the Manga over this any day.

    That's not bad, although $40 is still a little steep for 15 episodes. Season sets of the first series are ~$50 for 26 episodes, so I think I might wait to get Brotherhood until they do something like that.

    The manga is getting fairly close to wrapping up. Depending on how much longer it runs, and whether production of Brotherhood takes a break until it ends, I imagine they'd have the same ending.

    I havent been in touch with the managa, and only went through part of the first series. I like watching this show though, the story seems to be going at a faster pace than the previous series.

    Word is, the new series is running to 65 episodes. That'll take it, with weekly episodes, up through into the summer. The manga will have got another 5 or so chapters out by then. Assuming it lasts another five. The manga is showing all signs of wrapping up VERY soon.

    I herd Vic Mignogna wanted to reprise his role as Edward Elric, was he cast in brotherhood? What about the dude who was cast as Alphonse if I recall correctly he was 13 when he voiced Al in the original series.

    Edit: NVM I clicked the link both of my questions were unnecessary
