Yesterday, I discovered FMA:B on the new Hulu client (http://www.hulu.com/labs/hulu-desktop) and really like it. I watched all episodes of FMA:B, then decided to do a little research on the series and found out about the original series.

Should I just watch the FMA:B series and wait until it's over to go back to the original FMA, or should I go back and watch the original series now?

Thanks for your input!

FMA:B is based off the manga, so if you read the manga and really want to see the animated version then continue watching Brotherhood.
The first FMA season had its own story starting about episode 30 or so, but all the episodes before that pretty much follow the manga.

In my opinion, you should go ahead and watch FMA in your free time because all 51 episodes are out, then on Sundays watch FMA:B. biggrin.gif

P.S. Make sure to take a look at the manga too! smile.gif
