- old FMA or FMAB?? is better to watch first?
probably look at an episode listing to get an idea of when they diverge
FMA does establish the characters better since Brotherhood rushes ahead (understandably) FMA also has a different feel to it, somewhat darker tone and honestly does take an interesting twist to the story (probably a better one) but Brotherhood goes more down the standard anime/manga path with the characters, you'll get more on the homunculus and better backstory for their father. .
THe end is a bit cringe though imo with everyone doing the whole "you can do it Ed" "we believe in you" during the last fight
There are more characters introduced, overall more lighthearted and certain characters have more involvement.
music isn't quite as good in Brotherhood, not saying it's bad just they should have kept some themes that really set the tone like the one for the brothers. but that's not a huge deal.
so hit FMA up first then Brotherhood if you plan to watch both (recommended)
both are amazing, very worth watching both, but the key difference is FMA caught up and got ahead of the manga so (with permission from the creator) made up the story as they went once they caught up (somewhere around Greed) and FMAB was done as FMA manga was finishing, so is virtually filler free.
in short - FMAB is better, but i would watch FMA first because it came first so you get more appreciation for FMAB when you go through that
FMAB is better but I still watched al of FMA. Such a muted theme and is so chill, ''ending'' is divisive but aside from that the changes from the manga were interesting. I then went onto watch Conqueror of Shamballa then went onto FMAB.
FMA BROTHERHOOD Is much better. Watched both multiple times. What I would recommend is watching FMA until episode 16 (after that they lose track massively and it drops massively in entertainment) then move over and watch Brotherhood from the start.
Well tastes differ but the majority think (including myself) that Brotherhood is much better.
Brotherhood is ranked #2 on MyAnimeList (it used to be #1 I'm mad it isn't anymore.)
While the 2003 version is only ranked #214
The 2003 version isn't all that special, now Brotherhood on the end is 10/10 best anime 5ever.
They both start the same, but Brotherhood stays more true to the manga I heard, and I think the team behind Brotherhood did such an amazing job telling the story.
So in case you don't have Netflix or something similar here's a link to the Dub
(One of the few Dubs that are actually good)
tl;dr Just watch FMA:Brotherhood, if you're hungry for more then watch 2003 FMA
When number 1 on a website filled with TV series goes to a movie
I don't care how good that movie might be. I'm mad.
In my experience, watching the 2003 series made me familiar with the characters. Its pace is slower than Brotherhood's, but that's fine for establishing what's going in preparation for the different direction it takes from the manga.
Going back to the 2003 series from Brotherhood doesn't work as well. I'd say if you have the time watch the 2003 series. If you finish it or get bored of it, try Brotherhood next.
If you end up liking both, that's more FMA for you. (Don't forget the movies)
I've only seen Sacred star Of Milos but that movie was pretty boring. But I really digged the art style/animation in that movie.
FAMB skips much that is seen in FMA.
alternatively: FMAB condenses all of FMA into something like 4-5 episodes, so to truly get the Experience that is FMA watch FMA first.
so watch FMA, then where do i pickup at FMAB?
just watch all of both, Brothers is not 100% the same and the 4-5 episodes go by fast.
"[Background] Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an alternate retelling of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga that is closer to the source material than the previous 2003 adaptation[FMA], this time covering the entire story."
i would recommend just watching FMAB and skipping FMA. what FMA does is it takes the original story's concept, stretches it out over like 30 episodes, leaves a lot of plotholes and ends on a weirdass cliffhanger. FMAB was a lot more thoroughly thought out and is overall just better than FMA. You don't need to watch any of FMA to understand FMAB.
i watched both, and got confused when new chapters of the manga got rrealsed and they didnt follow FMA, then several years later FMAB came out and actually followed the manga.
TL;DR: FMAB is direct adaptation of the manga. FMA Aint.

I'm afraid I wouldn't know. I've been playing off my buddy's copy and I don't know where he got it. I think G2A was about $45 or so when I looked, and I've never had problems with the games I buy from there.
