-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.
Fullmetal Alchemist got voted 3rd out of 200 on http://www.animenfo.com/
In response to the question of which is better, Inuyasha or Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha pales in comparison to Fullmetal Alchemist as a series that is dragged on, has pointless characters, over used humor, repetative plot, pointless filler and OAV episodes, poor endings and dubbing, sometimes shoddy animation, over used fight scences, and you get bored and can never quite finish watching all 300 some epsodes, while Fullmetal Alchemist has a mear 51 and has an interesting and absorbing plot, explained characters, well paced, and execellent animation, and interesting voices and a seamless intergration of drama, humor, and horror.
Therefore, a better anime than Inuyasha.
And I've seen both.
Go watch some real anime like Hellsing, Evangelion, or Fullmetal Alchemist.
The Japanese title is "Hagane no Renkinjutshi."
Idiots abbrv. Fullmetal Alchemist as "FMA" when the official way is "HAGAREN."
