FMA advice

Postby Silverdream » Sat Mar 02, 2013 4:12 pm

Everyone keeps telling me how great FMA Brotherhood is, but since I saw the original first I think the pacing and voices are terrible?

Is it really worth trying to get into, and if so how do I not hate it?

Brotherhood is much faster pace and plot driven rather then the character and dialog driven 2001 series. i like it a lot more, and it has some freaking epic battles

Okay, but what about someone who likes the dialogue and suspense?

But the pacing was so bad in the first four episodes of brotherhood. I only felt annoyed at Edward and Alphonse, and parts that would still make me feel in the original just felt rushed.

The Brotherhood quests are usually pretty good.  I mean, what can be more exciting than assassinating people?

I agree with this completely. The original was absolutely amazing and Brotherhood was just a castration of the plot for the sake of action.

The original is like Mass Effect: sure, it's got plot or whatever, but when everything's over you just want to punch the writer in the face.
Now be smart and read the manga instead.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was really dumb.  I watched the first 7 episodes to see what the fuss was about but it felt contrived.
