I tried making a homunculus.
It turned out alright-ish.
Brotherhood ruins a lot of Arakawa's comedy. I laughed at parts of the manga but so many of the jokes don't work the same in animation.
They took out a lot of subtle moments too (ex. a scene where Al learns more about Greed's chimeras so that they're not just redshirts like in Brotherhood).
I feel watch FMA before Brotherhood made me like Brotherhood more than if I hadn't cause Brotherhood seemed to skip a lot of fleshing out of characters who I already knew and was familiar with so didn't need much to enjoy scenes with them.
That thing would've been perfectly fine if people didn't over react to it.
>they like each other
>now they are one
Just give it candy and trow a stick for it to pick up, keep it in jail with daddy and it's all right.
It's a shame whatever happened to Arakawa happened before she finished Silver Spoon
At least those two losers managed to smooch. That's further than a lot of romantic pairs get. It might resume again but good lord almighty are delays like this killer on such a mundane, if charming, series
This thread is basically nostalgia incarnated. Brotherhood had better action scenes, soundtracks, more complete and faithful story and adaptation. The first FMA had some good emotional scenes but that's it.
