I beg to differ; any episode of FMA is, in my opinion, as good or better than even the best three episodes of Inu-Yasha combined.
Inuyasha on the other hand is a show that was good for a bit, but did it really ever end?... -_-
I think that Fullmetal Alchemist has a very nice plotline, with well... almost no filler episodes. Inuyasha... I just can't say they I like it after watching 10 episodes of it. I might like it a little more if they ended it.
To all of those Die-Hard Inuyasha Fans, why do you like it so much? I mean, it has no end, it has many filler episodes, and frankly, a really bad plot line, filled with a few holes, here and there. Fullmetal Alchemist will win in any battle against Inuyahsa... in all aspects.
They then travel to try and find the Philoshiphor's stone.
Extra note: I can spell "Inuyasha" fine. I'm a fan of both series. And I tell you now, stop fighting! Look, none of the plot is better than the other! One's trying to find jewel shards, the other trying to find a stone! They've both got great plot, great characters, great humor. So just... stop it. And try to enjoy both series without comparing or muttering about how one of them sucks because thatjust ruins the experience.
Now the brothers want to regain their original bodies back but the only way to do so is to use the mysterious Philosopher's Stome which can bypass the laws of alchemy. Ed, now sporting automail limbs in place of the one he lost, becomes a State Alchemist of the militarian government to access data on the Stone.
The series follows the boys' adventures as they try to find this Stone and face corrupt military leaders, chimera, homunculi, and other alchemists. Though most of the time it's serious and a real tear-jerker at some scence, it has it's share of comedy and laughter.
It has a well written plot, original characters, and great artwork.
-The only thing that I can think of that is "wrong" with the show is that it has bad comedic timing, like if someone coughs blood, it gives them a split-second, almost comic-like look to them (this actually does happen).
-Though it is still not my favorite anime, it is surely making its way up my list (cowboy bebop being at the top, of course). It has a great storyline, tear-jerking scenes, (both comedic and tragic)and excellent character-development, the thing that I look for the most to define a good series.
I give this series an A-. Good job Ed and Al!
Just a small author's note: I am not what you would call a typical anime fan (though some of you may say that there is no such thing as a "typical" anime fan, you're just the kind of people I'm talking about). To give you a visual: I am 17-years-old, blonde, straight, normal/somewhat pretty, 125lb girl, who never wears rainbow stockings, OR freaky cat ears, is not in the "goth" group, or any other punk-emo whatever group....and uh...did I forget any other stereotypes, hmmm...oh well it'll come to me later. Anyhoo, I just wanted to say that so you know that you guys are not hearing from the same people over and over again.
Oh. Yea. Watch the show.
About the Inu yasha/ full metal thing...uh, which definition do you think your on?
go b*tch about it somewhere else where people might actually care.
a awesome anime series that is about 2 brothers edward and alphonse elric and the adventures the go on.
after their father ran off cuz of his over aged body their mother becomes ill and dies. then the 2 brothers try 2 bring their mom back. but the transmutation failed, eds leg and als body were took 2 the other side of the gate. ed used his arm for material and transmuted his brothers soul to a suit of armor.
ed gets automail arm and leg from his childhood friend winry and becomes a state alchemist. (fullmetal) with a smartass colonel, roy mustang who gives him missions to help find the philosophers stone. the brothers believe the stone will fix their bodys but little do they know wat the last ingredient is 2 make it and who mostly created and has the true incomplete stone.
when the humunculi capture the stone (yes capture) and use al, ed gets killed and al brings him back but with equivulant exchange al dies and ed comes back but ed say oh hell no and transmuts himself and al comes back with his normal flesh and bone human body and no memorys between when they tryed to bring their mom back and now.
after that the movie al still looks for ed and ed trys 2 get back to his world out of germany where hes striped of his alchemy abilitys and a woman trys to destroy eds world with alphons hedrichs help and he didnt know that she was going 2 try 2 destroy eds world but he makes a rocket powered plane and sends ed through the open gate and ed and al (eds brother) destroy the woman. ed returns to germany leaving al behind to destroy the gate from that side. but al climbed on the eds plane at the mast min and stays with ed 2 help him destroy the gate in germany leaving roy 2 deal with the gate in the other world.
