To me it seems more like a personal story of two brothers. They do get wrapped up in some pretty "epic" situations, but still the focus is on the two of them and how they deal with everything.

The movie though, goes in more epic directions. and seems to be about much bigger things than Ed and Al. That's part of why I didn't like it nearly as much as I liked the series. I like stories that focus more on character development than on other things.

Well, for there are many things that can be interpretted from FMA. One is that its the personal journey of two brothers. Another is showing just what a crual place this world can be. There are really too many themes in FMA to remember in one brainstorming session, really, which is part of the charm of the series.

When it comes to appreciating the series, it really relies on the "coming-of-age" aspet of the story. It's what seperates the otakus from the people who actually look for character development.

I think that FMA is a show about how two brothers can tryumph through pain, loss, and suffering. It proves that even though the world is full of low-lifes, there is still innocent, and kind people out there, who only want to help others.

Where did you come up with this theory?
You're saying people who appreciate FMA are not otakus?

Denial is the first step....

Whats an Otaku?

Well, two brothers who had lost their mother. They try to revive her using a forbiden type of alchemy. They fail and Ed loses a leg and Al, his entire body. Ed sacrifices his own arm to put Al's soul in armor. They then journey to find the Philosipher's Stone (sp?) to regain their bodies then ( i think) their mother. But the movie just off that whole thing.

World War II, OMFG!!! Duh!


World War II? wtf? No, it's set in Amestris, a fictional country. World War II brushes the series quite briefly, in only three episodes, I believe.
The movie does come down harder with the topic of World War II, but not the series, no.

There are a lot of aspects to FMA, not just about the brothers, but also how they develop, and what they learn on their way to finding the Philosopher's Stone. There are a lot of characters/incidents that are minor-and major-, but crucial to establishment of their character and personality.

I think Arakawa-sensei played off of both reality and fantasy. The only fantasy being alchemy, and related subjects. The rest, is pretty real. It's not like some fairy tale that popped out from the thick bedtime story book where everything's a happy ending, and the good always win, while the evil are defeated. Half the time, the world is quite opposite from that.

Also, the aspect of putting the military in it set the plot thicker than ever, 'cause who know what goes on in the military... It added a lot of depth to the series.

Arakawa-sensei also was kind enough to put morals in her characters/situations. The chracters didn't come out of there quite unscathed, but they made it, and it makes them better than they were the day before, because now they have experienced it. They learned a lesson.

Omg, i'm sorry i started to ramble on...

I think it's a Harry Potter aftermath. In the British series it was published as the Philosopher's Stone, but in the U.S. series it was published as the Sorcerer's Stone. I don't know why:wacko: , but it was. huh.gif

The publishers didn't you Yanks would know what a philosophers stone is. Apparently the fact thats it's explained in the book didn't seem to factor into it.
