I know I am in the minority, but I prefer the regular FMA. I think brotherhood lacks the emotion and pacing of the regular series (at least the first 10 or so episodes). I would watch the regular series before you watch brotherhood. It is by far one of my favorite series of all time.


Definitely the minority, but I think I know why. Have you finished it? I agree that the original series does a better job of setting up the foundation, but as soon as it starts diverging and going off the manga's path it becomes so ridiculously inferior. If you have only watched a bit of it, then you're missing out on the full experience.

I watched up to episode 26, I think. It all blends together since the beginning is a recap of sorts (I now it is the manga storyline).

Having some trouble deciding which one (or two maybe?) to get. I'm still an anime newbie (only have watched Fate/Stay Night to completion and almost finished with Death Note). I've seen various other anime as well but usually just an episode or two or a movie. Like are any of these a must watch/own?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

fma brotherhood is one of my favorites because of the story and the english voice cast. yuyu hakusho is a great fighting anime, and is one the only ones i will watch dubbed because the funimation cast is that great.

Eden of the East, Samurai Champloo, and Fullmetal Alchemist (the original series and Brotherhood) are all must-owns. That said, I wouldn't watch Brotherhood without seeing the original first, since the first series handles some of the early material *so* much better than Brotherhood.

I swear, I only buy anime around November and December. It's cheap, I buy a ton of it, and it easily gives me enough to watch until the next year.

I never liked Samurai Champloo... maybe because I went in expecting a lot more from the Cowboy Bebop people. Sucks too, because I've been told more than once that I look exactly like Jin. Would be so easy to cosplay.

I enjoyed the crap out of Champloo. I really like those different type series. It doesn't hold a candle to Bebop, but it's also reallllly different.

Why isn't Spice and Wolf season 2 in a Blu Ray case? That's kind of annoying...

Might pick up Samurai Champloo to own, I'd also love to have YYH if I didn't already own the DVDs... oh well.

It's cause Season 2 includes DVDs within the same case as the Blu-ray discs. At the time, Season 1 wasn't out on Blu-ray yet. It only came out a little after, so it was mainly made for those who had already bought the first on DVD.

As for YYH, the video quality's vastly improved over the DVD version. They used the Japanese Blu-ray remasters.

Thanks for the help everyone! Think I'm going to pick up Samurai Champloo. I would get FMA but since the original isn't on sale I'll hold off on it for now. Thanks again!

I'm overloaded with Netflix anime at the moment in my instant queue:

Claymore
Basilisk
Eden of the East
Samurai 7
FLCL
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Last Exile
The Place Promised in Our Early Days
Trigun
Gungrave
Heroic Age

And a whole bunch I haven't even bothered to add since I have such a huge back log....it's ridiculous....

Great deals. I grabbed Witchblade, Burst Angel, and Basilisk (for now).

I've heard mixed things about Claymore's video quality: that it iss really lacking and not worth the upgrade. Anyone have any thoughts on that? I'll consider getting that as well as Gungrave and maybe Chobits. I've also read a lot of great things about Eden of the East.

This holiday season has been really rough on my wallet so far!

Can anyone recommend me a series based on my tastes?

I really enjoyed FMA:B, Death Note, Fist of the North Star, Rurouni Kenshin, and Yuyu Hakusho.

I know it seems all over the place.. But if you could make any kind of recommendation I'd really appreciate it!

I found Robin extremely boring, and couldn't even finish it. I'd suggest watching an episode or two first.

Of course a brotherhood fan would have a problem with WHR. :D He sat through Death Note, so I figured he is patient.

I'm pretty patient with anime. Unfortunately, this isn't on sale... :cry:

Between Champloo and Samurai 7, what do you guys recommend? Those seem to be the only ones that seem interesting to me and on sale right now.

I just might have to..
I noticed a lot of anime has been added to Netflix Instant...

Are these English dubbed? Or have they finally wised up and included Japanese Audio with English subs?

Champloo is a steal at that price. Well worth the money, one of my personal favorites.
