Ok, someone made a topic on another online forum about anime being all the same so I decided to use FMA as an example saying: It has no magic, demon, giant robots, neko people, high school drama, etc...

So someone responses: There's Giant robots and magic in Fullmetal Alchemist

Ok I understand thinking alchemy is magic. But that simply isn't true: alchemy is my definition a science! Also magic requires a spell, potions ya know stuff like Happy Potter uses. Alchemy require true scientific ingredients in order to create a product. Ya can't create a dove from a toads eye and pigs feet: You need the real ingredients that a dove is made of.

But none the less the Giant robot thing is where I get confused. I watched all 51 episodes, the movie and read the first 59 chapters and I saw no giant robots Oo
Did anyone else see any? I'm confussed *scratches head*

probably... poor Al ~.~ He already has to live in a suit of armor now he has to worry about non-fans calling him a robot. How more inhuman can they make the poor guy? D:

Yeah. I remember thinking Al was some kind of robot when I first saw pictures for the series. (or some kind of ghost) I've also seen tons of non-fans refer to him as a robot. Even video games critics who were reviewing the games referred to him as 'a robot in a loin cloth'. =/

Mind you tho, he's not a giant robot. In their face.

True, dat! *nods*

Apparently when the manga first came out the big wigs at Viz were afraid people would think it was a mecha manga when Arakawa wanted to do a cover with just Al on the front...

Giant Robot? [spoiler]Mabye when Archer went terminator on everyone.[/spoiler]

As for Al, It's okay for first time viewers, but I get easily pissed when someone calls him a robot.
He's not a robot! Anyone who's seen the first episode would know that.

They were probably confused by Aaron Dimsuke's voice acting.

yeah, turns out this non-fan think it was Al. I sent her a message explaining Al is a kid traped in an old school armored suit and told her if she doesn't believe me she can check anywhere and ask any fan.

None the less she still think alchemy is magic. I'll go to my grave saying it really isn't >< The series clearly states it isn't. Even the description of alchemy on any dictionary or encyclopedia notes it as a science.. even if it really didn't work in our world its still not stupid magic. .__.
