Of course, using the Manga version faithfully would have meant not animating it until the manga was actually written .... When they started the animation project, there were only 2 volumes out, and many later scenes were based on what Arakawa-sensai told them she was planning to write, according to the interview with the director in a recent Newtype USA. (Can't say what issue, my dear daughter took it back to her dorm after spring break.)

@BellatrixAngelofKyo - Actually, Fullmetal vs. Flame is in the manga as a Gaiden in volume 3.

*blinks* how is the Anime able to "develop more?" the just took and squished all of rush Vally and them meeting Izumi into ONE EPISODE! if thats not rushed then i dont know what is... Rush valley was a few chapters long including when they met Xing... and Izumi was no where in sight... (note: i'm not flaming you i'm ijust stating my opinion and trying to give vallid examples)

Note: The Xing people encounter happened AFTER the Izumi/flashback and Devil's Nest/Greed sub-sagas, when the bros were heading back to Central to research about homunculus, of whom they had just learned of their existance from Greed. So... you were wrong there happy.gif;

And the qualification test was much better in the anime. It was actually a series of tests, not "Come in and attack Bradley and look cool."

Hey, why don't you try and read the manga, for a difference? tongue.gif Sorry for the [All hail lord Xenu] comment happy.gif, but the series of tests was done in the manga too, as they comment at some point (Someone says "He did pass the written test and the medical exam" or similar). It's just that nothing significant happened there.

Manga. FMA is an original story by Arakawa Hiromu sensei herself, the anime was decided to be done later and, funny, it helped the magazine's and the manga's sales go up a lot. Since it is how it worked for me too, from my point of view, that's what the anime is there for in this case:

The first chapter of the manga was published in Shounen Gangan in 2001 and one chapter every month thereafter (at this current moment, up to chapter 48).

The first episode of the anime was aired over Japanese TV in 2003. At that point in time, the manga was dealing with its Devil's Nest arc.

<Merged "Editing a post in Help With Manga/anime Differences" thread to this thread. 01/21/07 ~Tombow>

I heard there are a lot of major differences with FMA manga and anime. Since I only have read the English translated volumes, a little of the most recent stuff online, and seen the anime dub and read spoilers of it, I am not familiar with the differences.

Could someone make a list of the anime/manga differences? My computer is so slow, that me trying to read the manga online would take me....like, too long for someone of limited patience like I am. biggrin.gif

I've heard that some of the differences are:

-The character who is Pride in the anime is Wrath in the manga

-Envy is not the "brother" of Ed and Al like in the anime

-The humunculis are not failed human transmuatations, well some are but not all are

-Rose was never raped in the manga (I hope that's true, I hate rape stories!)

-Scar is gay in the manga. (!....cool......XD)

So, manga experts, help please!

No none of them are. homunculus are created in a completely different way in the manga.

We haven't seen Rose since the second chapter so who knows what is going on with her.

QUOTE
-Scar is gay in the manga. (!....cool......XD)


I don't know where you heard this but Scar's sexual orientation has not been revealed to us. The only thing we know for sure is Scar likes cute things.


There are a lot of differences besides that. A lot of the differences are subtle and kind of hard to explain. Character personalities are different (for example Al isn't as naive in the manga.) There are also some wonderful characters that never appear in the anime. Although the manga has its share of angst I find it to be overall more fun than the anime.. It never gets too depressing. Also at this point the plot has gone off in a completely different direction than the anime. Events happen in the manga that never happened in the anime and vice versa.

I am sure others can point out a lot more differences.

-Scar is gay in the manga.

blink.gif

Not quite sure where you'd have picked that up, but anyway...

SPOILERS!
  • Furher King Bradley is Wrath, not Pride. The Kid does not exist.
  • Sloth is not Trisha.
  • Frank Archer does not exist.
  • Kimbley is still incarcerated. Appears only in Scar's flashbacks and at the destruction of Lab 5.
  • Yoki lives no as Scars "Servant."
  • Fletcher and Russel Trigum do not exist in the manga.
  • Greed was never trapped in Lab 5 in the manga.
  • Basque Grand has not yet appeared in the manga, if ever. He is supposedly dead from the start.
  • Shou Tucker is killed by Scar right after his experiment is discovered. He does not get transformed into a chimera.
  • Scar killed Winry's pared
  • Dante does not exist in the manga.
  • Ling & fellow Xingians do not appear in Anime
  • Homonuculi are created artificial humans in the manga, NOT failed human transmutation side-effects.
  • Homonuculi can only be destroyed via the stated biblical/inferno punishment for each of their respective sins.
  • Homonuculi are created by someone known as The Father.
  • The Psiren and Other Brothers Elric parts do not exist in the Manga.
  • Number 48's head is killed by Lust and body killed by Envy, both before they can reveal the truth to Edward.
  • Barry's true manga body is nothing like his anime body, and is revealed after the fact, not before. Also, Barry is more important.
  • Maria Ross is a scapegoat.
My figers are growing tired, or I'd type more. This should suffice for now, though.


--------------------
Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

[*]Homonuculi can only be destroyed via the stated biblical/inferno punishment for each of their respective sins.

While the rest of your statements are facts at the moment, the one above is only a theory/postulation.
A more correct statement would be "Homunculi currently can only be totally destroyed by breaking them down into their basic components through some distilling process (like Greed), or killing away all the lifeforce contained in their core/PS (like Lust)."

Scar killed Winry's pared

This one, I disagree. I still believe he didn't.

What we know for sure is that some arm-tattoed face-bandaged Ishvalian killed Winry's parents and that, for whatever the reason (maybe because it was his brother? That's my theory for now, at least), Scar takes the blame for it.

Another difference, BTW:
- The tattoo in Scar's arm has naught to do with the Philosopher's Stone, it's some form of modified Rentanjutsu (alchemy from Xing, specialises in medical fields) that was used for fighting by people called "Ishval Warrior Priests". Scar's brother had it, he didn't.

Presumably he got his arm from his brother, but this hasnt' been stated either.
