I've been wondering whether the storyline of the anime version was made up by bones after cutting and pasting bits of the manga together to make the first half of the series, and then slapped on their own story for the rest of it? Or did Arakawa Hiroaki-san help them create this storyline? Does anybody know?

They did make up parts that the manga hadn't come to yet, and did re-arrange the sequence of events, but it all has to go through the approval of the manga artist; Arakawa sensei first~

I've read that Arakawa sensei also supervised the character design of those characters that hadn't appeared in the manga the time the anime was made (for example, Ed and Al's dad).

Basically Arakawa-sensei was still doing the story when Bones called to say they wanted to make the anime. So she can only give them the manga materials then. Also she told them the conclusion she had in mind as well as like what Sycia said, materials and background for some future characters.

She never had a hand in deciding how the anime story went. Bones took what she had given them and made their own story. Supposedly, the only thing Bones asked of her is how the characters would likely react when confronted with certain situations they themselves created. Whether they took her advice on such character behaviour is also questionable.

I think a better question is did Arakawa take ideas from the anime? I don't really know how many manga chapters were out by the time the anime finished...

Were they up to the Greed part of the manga when the anime part came out?  Martel died the same way but much much earlier in the manga, sword down Al's armor to "slay the poor chimera attacking Al."  And that's where the manga and the anime split from each other the most was right after that.  So I'm wondering if Bones got the idea of Martel's death from the manga or vice versa.

what chapter was that happened?

Well, I just got Newtype USA's january issue today and the FMA article answered my question completely. *slaps self on head* dry.gif

But thanks for answering my question anyways guys. laugh.gif

Apparently they moved some scenes of when Ed and Al were 12 earlier in the anime so people have time to connect with them and experience their trials and stuff, and how they mature through it all. The article says that Ed and Al reacted differently to events in ep7 & ep9 because they were of a different age than they were in the manga version. Also, scar is younger in the anime version and learnes lessons througout the story.

The article says only 4 volumes were out when the story for the anime was written, so the story writer, Sho Aikawa came up with his own ending.

The manga have a dark look the anime haven't. The enemies are really enemies; they dont turn "good" at all.

Really? I always considered the anime far more sad and dark. The manga still has a lotta funny sequences and everyone doesn't seem as angsty~

O_o really? i think the manga is much darker... and i agree that the villains are much more...well, villainous...

what about Lust?

and don't forget how

and what about Lt. Ross?

if you ask me, while maybe the anime is a little more...shocking at times because you see it in motion...there is so much more that has happened in the manga that is totally untouchable by the level of pain and drama we have seen in the anime...

FullMetal Lizard said all I have in mind. Plus Scar being a real motherf*cker in the manga...

Though both the manga and the anime are dark in their own ways, one way in which I believe the anime was darker was in how Winry lost her parents..

Spoiler: (Click here to Display)



I guess I prefer characters where the level of evil is sort of ambiguous (makes things interesting: having characters seen in a sort of shade of gray rather than black and white) For some, the fact that Lust and Scar had all these internal conflicts is what made them feel that the anime is much more dramatic

If you had done your research more, you would know that the anime is the one who was taking ideas from the manga. The manga was started way, way ahead ( 2 years ) of the anime and a lot of the drafts ( future chapters ) were given to the anime company before they were even published.

I agree I think the Manga is a lot darker although sometimes the tension is released with funny moments. The manga has better villains.

Yea, I could see where you're coming from, Coffee...
It seems that most people's hatred when watching the anime goes to tucker..(at least for me it did).
