I saw the first anime before and liked it a lot, so now I am thinking about watching FMA Brotherhood to get the full FMA experience. However I want to know which is better anime or its original - manga.
I heard that in terms of story manga and anime are pretty much the same, so i wanted to hear what you guys think

Those of you who have both read the manga and watched FMA Brotherhood, which is better?
If you were to choose one what would it be?

The anime follows the story quite well and it is mostly whether or not u would like to see it animated or not, frankly i loved the anime but ofc i loved the manga to

It really depends on what you prefer.

If you prefer melodramatic, bittersweet, main-characters-only-driven stories, then 2003 anime is best.

If you want a full-blown epic legend with a beautifully woven plot, love for both major and minor characters, no fillers, development with both story and all characters, deep meanings/themes, slapstick humor, and a satisfactory ending with everything that makes sense, then the manga or FMAB is best.

I think you should watch FMAB/read manga, whether you've watched the first anime or not. smile It's a wonderful story and will not leave you with regrets.

I personally would choose the manga or Brotherhood. The anime was okay, but not my personal taste as the ending did not do it for me and I found the manga to be on a whole new level in epicness. Mostly because of the ending, though - the first anime's plot didn't really make that much sense to me, and when I watched Brotherhood, everything was cleared up perfectly.

I mean, there's a reason that it's the highest rated manga here on mangaupdates. And even though it's already over (for over a year), it's still retaining that position.

But whatever you decide! It's up to you.

The anime is almost exactly like the manga.It just depends on whether you prefer watching or reading. Or you could just do both smile
btw, the new anime has an amazing soundtrack and incredible animation.

The first anime has a completely different story, which I didn't like that much. Personally, I prefer the manga, but if you want to watch it, FMAB is very good too.

I loved FMA Brotherhood and the manga. I didn't like the other FMA at all.
