    Brigadier General Basque Grand was that sort of character you loved to hate.

    And Scar...
    Well, he starts off as an antagonist, and then becomes a protaganist. Thats how I view it, and always will. And its really poignant, his death scene.

    I heard that in order to see the real "ending" you would need to see the Conqueror Of Shamballa movie..so i bought the DVD.

    And what a horrible decision that was. I personally hated the movie.

    Wow. I don't give a damn about the trivial relationships of an anime. A fictional show.

    Wow. :dry:

    The movie was a convoluted piece of trash with a two-dimensional antagonist.

    That underused the (rather) extensive cast it had available. It could've been better.

    Thats not to say I didn't like it, but they really needed to use some of the other characters a bit more.

    Oh well, you can't win them all.

    Kind of hard to match a great series in an hour and a half movie. But I must concur they could have done a little better.

    So I picked up Volume 1 of the FMA manga. Without any spoiling, just a yes or no answer, does Hughes go on about his little girl in the manga as much as he did in the anime?

    Hughes actually plays a much smaller role in the manga than the anime.

    But yes, he is still a doting father.

    Yeah, but big deal right? I mean they've run through the series a few times already. Adult Swim wasn't smart enough to pick up the movie. I think someone else picked it up.

    Starz picked it up. So in the near future, expect to see it air on the Sci-fi Channel during their Ani-Monday 2 hour block.

    Those were rumors. Seiji Mizushima is done with the series. I suppose if the producers and someone else wanted to do FMA again, he couldn't stop it, but whatever. The manga I believe is winding down and Hiromu Arakawa is going to start a different series.

    The anime for all intents and purposes is complete.

    Good. The last thing I want is them to come screw it up.

    Damn. I was kind of hoping they would go more in depth, especially after the ending to Conquerer of Shambala. But, like GSG said, I'd rather them end it as is than for them to screw it up.

    So I just finished watching the FMA series for the first time over the last couple of weeks and I must say it is now one of my all-time favourites. What an amazing plot and characters, so much depth to it. I am yet to see the movie but I will no doubt buy it very soon while the series is still fresh in my memory.
