Why was Full Metal Alchemist forgotten so quickly after it had ended?
>>
Because it's 90% filler shit
>>
>>137148202
New anime adaptation was mediocre. Manga was pretty good but people with attention disorders don't read manga.
>>
>>137148202
The plot became shit after the big reveal.
>>
>>137148202
Because Brotherhood was better.
>>
>>137148688

There were reveals?!
>>
I still like it.
>>
It's been 6 years.

Whinry a best.

Nothing more than a semi-loli Hawkeye

Which makes her rather perfect.

Interesting premise, great world building, dumb plot, stupid ending.

>power of friendship XD
>villain who wants to become god
>unstoppable protagonist
>uninteresting and flat characters
>lame, cop out happy ending for everyone of no consequence
And other generic shonen tropes

This is part of the reason I preferred the 2003 version, although that one suffers from filler, a limited cast, and (relatively) poor production values.

Oppai lolis do exist

But, yes, obviously Whinry is meant for the guys who are attracted to 16 year olds, not lolis.
>>
>>137148688
Which one
>>
>>137149732
FMA03 ending was just as bad, just edgier
>>
>>137149732
>no consequence
Ed sacrificing his ability to do alchemy for Al was much better than Ed getting trapped into an alternate dimension
>>
>>137149935
Conceded. But up until the last few episodes it was far better than brotherhood.

Although I think conqueror of shamballa rounds it off nicely.

Not even a little, the one sucks dick too.
>>
>>137149732
Brotherhood was much better than 2003 and even with that ending it was still leagues above.
>>137148202
It wasn't forgotten. Its still regarded as one of the best anime even Normies know it exists and it isn't heavily advertised.
>>
>>137151306
>Its still regarded as one of the best anime
It never was.
>Normies
>>>/r9k/

Normie here,

I think FMA:B is probably the best of all time, and thought FMA 2003 was ok except for the mid-end not making any sense

I've rewatched FMA 2003, probbaly 2 times and FMA:B once

Really good series to introduce anyone into anime, though sometimes it has too much BAKA BAKA LE SHORT xD parts for me
>>
>>137151349
>It never was.
>extremely high ratings
>Highly rated on Netflix and Hulu
>Still talked about today
>Makes many top 10 Anime lists
Yeah sure. It never was.
>>
>>137148202
It wasn't? It ended fucking six years ago and there's regular threads about it.
>>
>>137151542
Fuck off.
>>
>>137151646
>regular threads

not even

>>137151711
This is at least the third thread in the last week.

Please, go ahead a give a link to archive

Now kill yourself, you shitty newfag.

>>137151887
The first series was popular as hell, too. You could even argue a lot of people prefer it because of nostalgia.

FMAB (and manga. More the manga) had great story, and I mean the story behind the story. So much rhyming and pottery. Arakawa clearly had studied western and eastern alchemies and put not just references to them but their philosophies into the story. The whole thing witht he antagonist is a big ouroboros.

Everything starts with Hoenheims blood giving birth to the homunculus in the flask. That homunculus makes chaos. Childs of Hoenheim stops him. So much pottery, so clear sneak eating it's tail.

And even that is reference to that taoist story about mason who wasn't content with anything. It all works.
>>
>>137148202
Are you (and everyone who responded seriously) retarded?

It wasn't anywhere close to forgotten, it's absurdly popular, one of the biggest entry level series in the medium, and well received by both /a/ and normies alike.
