As an intro ep I thought it was great.
Set up the plot, introduced the main alchemists and their abilities, foreshadowed the entire plot.
Good art direction even if it looked a tad weak in the less important scenes and I really liked the black and white section.
OP and ED were nice enough though I'm not a huge fan of the music but it's just an OP/ED. The cuteness of the ED is nice considering how quickly FMA gets dark.
Also, I totally called it when it came to Issac. Didn't expect him to be a traitor but i knew he'd just be used to show off what the other characters can do.

EDIT;
forgot to say, I like how they let in FMA mangas silly humour at times and how they handled Issac's power with the huge circle.

Another observation I think should be noted is the nice balance between sincerity, levity, and darkness in this episode. Much more representative of the manga (as Popgeejo has already commented) than the first anime in this regard - by which I mean to say: so far, not an angst fest.

In fact, the character introductions - more specifically the alchemists - reminded me far more of a shonen style story (each fighter is introduced with his unique alchemical symbol) than the more dramatic intro of the first series.

Not necessarily bad, just different.

The animation for the OP was spectacular - definitely my favorite FMA opening thus far, and the relationships between all the main characters were touched upon. I especially enjoyed the wet-match stuff with Roy. Don't under-estimate my flames, indeed. XD. That scene with Bradley in the alleyway was pretty epic stuff, oh, and it's official = Isaac > > > > > > > Cornello

Finally, some curious observations:

1. Good to see Alphonse kicking some tail and not monologuing
2. Nice touch that Isaac was dressed in his Ishbal attire. Like he knew this would be his last battle from the start.
3. Great alchemy - hope that kind of creativity characterizes the rest of the series
4. B/W alley scene...nuff said
5. The music from the end of the flashback to the death of Isaac was legendary

He wasn't Ishbalan. No white hair or Red eyes.

Nope, the manga started just like the first anime, in Lior.

I thought he was mentioned, because he already died when the story of the manga began (forgive me if I'm wrong ^^').

Edit: Nevermind, I confused him with another character ^^'...

Yeah, that's what I thought. (haven't read the early manga in a long time)

So...I thought the anime was going to closely follow the manga - what happened?

Maybe they need new material to get the viewers attention? Don't worry, I bet they'll follow the manga-storyline soon.

From the raws it looks like Lior will be coming soon. Issac is just a quick "This is the FMA world, this is what are main alchemists can do" type deal, hence him being killed off so quickly.

I can't wait for the sub! I glanced at the RAW...

So...is it going to be strictly manga based like I originally thought after this? I sure hope so, or I'll be slightly disappointed. I've been so excited for this new anime because it would be strictly manga based compared to the previous anime.

But, I must say...the first episode is exciting so far, even if I can't understand a word they're saying XP.

I just saw the sub and everything made me feel like crying out with joy... it's so perfect that you can't even describe it. The feel, the music, the atmosphere, everything is screaming FMA from top to bottom.

And it makes me so happy.
