i love this manga (and the anime..but not as much as the manga)(.....just to let people know...if you are planning on watching the anime..the english voices are actually very good compared to other animes..so if dont want to hurt your eyes reading subtitle and dont know japanese.. you should watch it in english)

the manga has a very good plot and its leaves you wanting to read more and more

FMA RULES

First thing that i would like to say is that FMA is one of my favorite manga's. The anime was also welly made; however, it had a horrible ending that i belive that everyone hated.
The manga is made in an excellent way with amazing artwork. My only downside is that it is only scantalated one chapter at a time and will require some patience to wait for.

BEST MANGA EVER

This is a must-read for everyone and anyone! Both the anime and manga are great, them being different sort of adds something to the story because there are two versions. The manga is very funny. But you have to do both.

But if you are planning on watching the anime WATCH THE JAPANESE VERSION. Subbed or raw. Don't watch it in English. The voices are terrible.

VERY different from the anime... And VERY much better, in my opinion. I've only recently got into this series (I was tired of hearing about it from so many people, and not having read it myself), and I was hooked pretty much from the start. Then I tried watching the anime. >_< That didn't work very well.

But if you haven't gotten into this series yet, you really got to!

I found it to lack overall impact. I found myself unable to suspend disbelief shortly after the beginning. At the same time, a lot of people really resonate with this manga. Give it a look through at the book store if you have a chance.

FullMetal Alchemist definitely deserves a ten. The drawing style is, first of all, fantastic. Second of all, the story is unlike any I've ever seen before. It is unique, interesting, and well detailed. It may not be as popular as other shounen series, but it definitely is better than most.
