Rooting for doesn't really mean who you want to live happily ever after in the end. Just the group you like the most. This really is a manga based poll, but it has anime aspects too. I looked for a thread like this, but not very hard...

The Elrics include: The Elrics, Rockbells, Curtis family, ect. It does not include Roy and co.

The military includes: The military, durrr. Doesn't include Ed despite his title. Marcoh isn't in it either, or Kimbley. It also includes a certain spoiler that I'm sure you can guess without my saying.

The Homunculi includes the homunculi, including all the anime and manga homunculi (except Greed in both versions), Father, and Dante too. It also includes Kimbley since you know, he's probably gonna work for them

The Xing Crew includes Fu, Lan Fan, and obviously Ling. I guess Mei Chan too, but I was thinking she's more in the Scar group.

Scar and co includes Yoki, Scar, Mei, Xiao Mei, and Marcoh.

The Devil's Nest is everyone in the Devil's Nest, obviously. Greed, Martel, Dorchet, Loa, Bido, ect. It does not include Kimbley or Tucker because I say so D:<

ETA: June 19, 2009, Instead of closing the thread because the poll choices no longer reflect recent manga story, updated the poll choices according to more recent manga storyline development, and added
* "Mustang's co: Roy, Riza, Havoc, Breda, Fuery, & Falman" and
* "Northern Army: Olivier and Briggs' bunch" and
* "Manga chimeras: Darrious, Heinkel, Jerso, & Zampano"
to the poll choices per popular demand. ~ Tombow

Other is other, simple as that.

I voted Scar and co, believe it or not. But I hope the Devil's Nest crew gets votes!

The Devils nest crew make better anti-heros IMO and while I could root for them I feel that my support lies else where.

I'm torn between the Xing Triad and Scars following.
Xing has ninjas, a gal in a sexy long coat and a meglomainac but Scars group has a Warrior preist, a freaky Panda and a mascot in the shape of Mei.
Both groups are made of 100% liquid awesome but I geuss Ranfan settles the score for being the most bad ass female next to Izumi. (I'd like to see who would win in a scrap between those two.)

I have to go with the Elric group. Because of their compassion for life in all things really. The others groups do have other great causes too. The Elric group also is kinda of a weird thing too. They do good deeds instead of obeying military orders that tell them to do terrible things.

I was predictable and voted for the Elrics. What can I say, I love them. They're my favorite part of the manga and I got really bored during those flashbacks where Ed and Al didn't even make an appearance for about three chapters. I guess I've just gotten attached to them. Scar and co. are a close second, though. I can't believe those random characters all ended up together. They make a very interesting little group.

Nice idea, Collette!

I voted for Homunculus group, cause for me, with their backstories, they`re perfect bad guys` gang cool.gif Somehow i like villains more then good guys...
So, Homunculus are in the first place.
Then goes Elrics company. I must say that not in every anime you can meet so interesting and fascinating good guys (why is Curtis family included? huh.gif )
And then goes Greedo-san cool.gif and his mates.

I like Scar`s group, too. But Yoki is included, and i hate him, so...

P.S: And what about Tringhams?

I voted for the Xing crew 'cause what can I say, I love my Ling and Ran Fan ^__^ Though the military crew is a close second, cause Mustang's subordiates are friggin' amazing, especially in the manga. Next is the homunculi, cause they're just amazingly badass. And of course you've gotta love Scar's crew (I love how Mei is oblivious to how 'bad' Scar is XD) and the Devil's nest crew (though I liked them more in the anime, for some reason).

Ironically or not, my least favorite group is probably the Elrics and Co., even though Ed and Al are the main characters, heh. Though this is normal for me; I always like the secondary characters more than the main, I'm not sure why.

Maybe it`s because anime main characters are always full of cliches dry.gif ...

The Homunculus, they are a lot of fun, I'd love to be in their gang biggrin.gif
I would totally take Gluttonny's place besides Lust, it'd be belle and belle instead of beauty and the beast smile.gif

The Homunculi. I just find them so interesting.


--------------------
Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

I voted for the Devil's Nest crew.

In many ways they were people who just wanted to start life anew considering the heck they had been through in the past.
And I'm sure that loads of people would love ( should they ever get the chance) to just kick back, relax and live life the way they wanted to, without having to worry about anything.

And while they weren't exactly angels, they weren't devils either, much like Greed himself ( despite him saying he's ' not a good person' some of his actions seemed to contradict that statement)

All of them are also very very likeable, especially in the manga when their talking to Al.

Even though we know what happens to each and every single one of them in the end ( I cried after reading through volume 8 and when I watched those certain episodes sad.gif ) I think it's safe to say that Full Metal Alchemist wouldn't of been the same without them.

Yes I'm afraid I went for the Elrics, mainly because of the other people included in their group who are innocent in all of this. The Elrics themselves have an almost selfish goal but it essence are good guys who have found themselves in the middle of a bigger picture and help as well they can.

Homunculi, obviously. I chose them because they are pretty darned awesome. The Elrics was pretty close up, though.

Xing, of course! I just love them so much. They're really great characters, and even though they seem to have a selfish goal, you can't help but notice the tightness and loyalty they have. happy.gif
