Re: Fullmetal Alchemist or Brotherhood?
Another thing about Brotherhood is it makes it feel like a fully-realized world, since in the course of the story it involves neighboring countries like Drachma, Xing, the ruined country of Xerxes, etc. Amestris in the original just seemed like some kind of self-contained universe whereas in Brotherhood it's part of a greater fantasy universe.
Anyway, Lord, did you watch The Sacred Star of Milos yet? The plot was nothing to write home about and it didn't really add anything to the greater universe in my opinion but it was incredibly well-animated and has some amazing action scenes.
