look up any word, like bukkake:
-An excellent colorful anime full of comedy, drama, fantasy, and yes, even metal :P. I was somewhat apprehensive because of the overall apearance of the show at first (you know, big googly eyes, and manga-ish reactions) but I was pleased to see that they did this just to draw in the more immature crowd who like bright and shiney objects, etc,. The overall plot just keeps on getting thicker and thicker, with new twists and turns that is not often found nowadays in anime.
-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.
Full Metal Alchemist is on my top 5 list of great animes, and I've seen 16.

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.

An anime voted, called, and said to be one of the best ever.

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.
Inuyasha is for anime wannabes.

Go watch some real anime like Hellsing, Evangelion, or Fullmetal Alchemist.

The best anime I've ever seen and I've seen about 3: Lupin the Third, Inuyasha, and FMA. It has a very good plot, and keeps you interested through out the whole episode.
Fullmetal Alchemist is very interesting

A anime that is way better and mor einteresting than Inu-Yasha, Inuyasha has a retarded plot which they have to get some jewel. Just buy a freaking jewel from the store goddamnit. FullMetal alchemistis one of the best anime ever and will always be better than queer ass INu-Yasha (which the characters always die and somehow come back to life).
Full metal alchemist pwnz all

fails i.e. its not worth watching
just like inuyasha and other cn animu,full metal alchemist sucks

I can too spell Inuyasha, and for your information, full metal alchemist is one of the worst animes I have ever seen. Inuyasha is superior in every way.
Fullmetal Assholes like this guy are blinded by their love for Fullmetal Alchemist and can't realize what show is really better. I pity them.

The real spelling of the dumbass-fan-version "Full Metal Alchemist."

The Japanese title is "Hagane no Renkinjutshi."
Idiots abbrv. Fullmetal Alchemist as "FMA" when the official way is "HAGAREN."
Square-Enix publishes Fullmetal Alchemist.

A horribly stupid show with no plot and lame characters that pales in comparison to the greatness that is Inuyasha.
Inuyasha is the best anime ever and full metal alchemist (it doesn't deserve caps) sucks major ass.
