Ever since FMA finished airing on Adult Swim, I've been looking for something to fill the anime void (yeah, it's been awhile). I've tried a couple anime but nothing has been able to keep my attention. Eureka 7 seemed pretty good (same creators as FMA even), but the really slow starting pace has pretty much made me lose interest (stopped watching around episode 11-ish) plus mecha anime have never really been my thing. Now I'm trying Wolf's Rain and it seems pretty interesting but I can tell it's not really going to be anything I can get into.


I don't know what it was about FMA I liked so much, but I'm trying to narrow it down to these thoughts:

- Long interesting plot with lots of twists (FMA basically had like 2 filler episodes and those are arguable and so many episodes had such huge impacts on the rest of the series (ie. Episode 25, Episode 34, etc).
- Realistic, likeable characters... even the bad guys made you feel for them and other then the whole alchemy & homunculous thing, they acted like normal people. Like how when they first introduced Scar he seemed like a pretty typical bad guy bent on killing innocent people, but later in the series they went into such detail about his past and his situation that it almost made you understand his actions.
- Relatable situations (war, discrimination, etc) and realistic locations (I like the fact the locations were based in european-esque cities rather than how most anime takes place in some unrealistic futuristic city or in modern day japan, not that I got anything against japan, I just found it fresh and somewhat original)
- Wasn't loaded with uncomfortable fanservice and whatnot (not a fan of pixelated chicks with obscenely large knockers and any romance in FMA was generally of a humorous nature (ie. Episode 37) minus a few subplots or backstories (lust) which I found necessary) and it's important since I like to let my non-anime watching friends watch a couple episodes from time to time and unless they're really open-minded that kinda stuff usually doesn't go over too well. FMA was a great starter anime. tongue.gif
- It was newer, so the dub was more than bareable (I'm a dub fan) and the animation and music was superb.

-----------

Sorry, I'm starting to ramble on about why I like FMA.


Point is, I haven't found any anime yet that has drawn me in as much as FMA. I am just hoping for some suggestions as I'm not really in-depthly experienced with all the anime out there and I'm sure you all know a lot more than me. Based on my ranting up there, you might have some idea what I am interested in... perhaps you know of some anime I can look into?

Thanks in advance. smile.gif


P.S: I've basically seen everything Adult Swim has to offer as of this moment and the only ones I've really enjoyed were FMA, Trigun and possibly Wolf's Rain (I haven't seen all of it yet). So anime like Cowboy Bebop, Bleach, Inuyasha, etc... don't really need to be suggested.
