        Because 2003 anime was made before the source material was finished and diverged into a pants-on-head original ending with dymension travelling nazis (actual events, not a hyperbole).
        Brotherhood was a safe, by the numbers adaptation of the finished manga.

          03 influenced the direction the manga took which is why the second half feels like a completely different story.

          Because the west is filled with retards that hold battle shonen in high regards and because there is this meme that the source material is infallible/Manga is always better.
          Because of anime production works, yeah a lot of bad decisions are made. However there are plenty of examples of anime that completely outshines its source materiel (I.E Golden Boy).

          People basically went back and considered 03 to be the more interesting take on the story, people back in the BH era were all about muh fantasy battle shonen shit and told you 03 was bad because the world had yet to be burn't out of isekai shit yet.

        Brotherhood followed the manga, which was still ending back then, while 2003 was a fanfic and had a bias against it because of that since we now finally had the "true vision", which means it's better. It also looked phenomenal, especially for 2009.
        Same thing goes for Hellsing.

          Those "filler arcs" are character development and world building.
          Huges's death is really weak in Brotherhood cause he barely has any scenes before it. In 2003 he has so much more screen time.

            Keeping Tucker alive was also a great decision. Brotherhood reminds you that his entire character arc in the manga is shock value and introducing the darker side of Alchemy and he's quickly forgotten about.

            03 kept his insanity around where it was needed and also kept him suffering.

        Like most shonen, the best parts of the story are mostly in the beginning
        2003 spent a lot of time animating and detailing those really well while FMAB just glosses over them because 2003 already covered it and they didn't want to just do the exact same thing but worse
        Also 2003's ending, as fanfictiony as it is, is way more interesting than 'muh power of friendship' 1v1 the plot canonically ends on

          I generally like FMAB more because of how it uses its cast to pull off that friendship ending. Fairly often you see the friendship power boosting the main character(s) to deliver the final blow, but in FMAB they're simply there to cheer Ed on in a boxing match.

          Brotherhood has a much more interesting ending than 03, partly helped by the fact that the ending of Brotherhood covers almost a third of the anime.

          I hated how brotherhood handled the Homonculi and did not find Father particularly interesting.
          In 03 the Homoculi felt like a really cool way to describe the alchemical concept of a false human in a setting that establishes the futility of trying to create humans using alchemy.
          All of them were mistakes born of the characters attempting to perform human transmutation. They all had a personal link to these characters and it really upped the drama.

          Brotherhood instead makes them parasitic philosopher stones with portions of Father's human flaws. It's kind of weird and devalues them as characters.
          I thought the Envy V. Mustang fight was the cringiest thing as a result of this. When you've established inhuman characters that embodies a one dimensional human emotion, coming to to conclusion that they're ruled by it isn't profound.
          But they make a big fucking deal that Envy is envious.

          Father himself is kind of cool as a concept but at the same time lame. He's a "does what he does because its nature" villain once they establish that he's just Hohenheim's clone bound to a fragment of god that is trying to return to god but is misinterpreting this as trying to become god. It's an interesting concept but felt incomplete because they just gloss over it.

            i also liked how the philosophers stone stayed the relevant mcguffin in 03 all the way through. it was always about the stone, human transmutation and the link between the two and how their own efforts are ultimately flawed and contradictory to their ideals. in brotherhood the philosophers stones quickly get demoted to a generic poweup item.
            you have an intense fight against a villain and it seems like the hero us winning but he suddenly whips out a stone and goes even further beyond so the only thing the hero can do us pop a stone as well and go even further beyond as well. sad how they ruined the entire premise of the stones, i liked reading up on real life alchemy and the legend of the philosophers stone and how the entire show is basically revolving around that but they completely removed any aspect of that in brotherhood

              Yeah I loved how the stone was actually a big deal, like entire civilizations were used to make it.

              BH just kind of throws that to the side to go directly into the concept of turning yourself into a philosopher stone or some shit, which actually pretty damn weird when you think about it.

              I suppose the point was to make it appear as the next, more relevant step but it cheapens the concept in general. Like "oh yeah you can merge souls into a red stone, but like you actually just want to merge souls into yourself and give yourself a god body". It's very glossed over at that point.

              By product of the story escalating the scale in which a philosopher stone's production could be done. So instead of killing dozens or tens of dozens of people in a small room you had the travesty that wiped out the country of Xerxes and the same would apply to Amestria. And since using the stone was a major conflict for both Ed and Alphonse and their ultimate goal shifted from just using a stone to finding a way to get their bodies back without it, it works that the stone doesn't wind up being the end all be all.

          >I don't get why FMA was so popular it's shit,
          Did you not watch Brotherhood? Did you only watch the long/drawn out/inconsistent original anime adaptation?

          Brotherhood ruins a lot of characters, but it's far superior in storytelling than fucking Naruto.

          Incredibly low bar. It's literally a step above naruto, basically the same shit. Only thing is Naruto's fights are at least entertaining, even if they're retarded. FMAB's are awful.

        Honestly I'm glad this is becoming a shitpost magnet because I remember being so baffled that anyone could consider Brotherhood a masterpiece after this. Yeah the 03 version has a completely retarded ending but its direction is just leaps and bounds above anything Brotherhood ever did. I don't really know how someone who hasn't seen the original series takes the early parts of Brotherhood. It glosses over the material at a lightning pace because it's shit 03 already did accurately.

        All that being said, I'd probably recommend Brotherhood over 03 if only because it's a more consistent package that pays off the simple set ups. It's easier to sell to people over saying "Yeah it fucks up a ton but it's interesting" and both of them are gateway drugs.

        gays at the time hailed brotherhood as the superior product simply because it actually adheres to the manga's storyline while 2003 wings it since the manga wasn't finished yet. Both of them have their strengths and weaknesses, but generally speaking I'd say that 2003 is better overall.

        One thing that Brotherhood fails at spectacularly is not only maintaining a consistent tone, but establishing an appropriate one in the first place. Compare Nina's death in 2003 to Brotherhood's. 2003 takes the time to establish a sibling-esque bond between Nina and the Elric brothers, then follow up with the eerie silence before Tucker reveals the fruits of his labor and the chimera speaks for the first time. Brotherhood's score lends more to the tone of a thriller than the harsh reality that something truly deHispanicable just occurred.

        I prefer Brotherhood, but both are extremely flawed.

        FMA:
        pros:
        >emotional investment
        The writers put a lot of effort into smaller details that REALLY sucks you into caring for the characters. Every sad scene feels far sadder in the original FMA.
        >Doesnt feel TOO padded out.
        I dont mean filler, I mean a scene like "Freiza claiming the planet will blow up in 5minutes" doesnt happen. But what does happen instead is...

        cons:
        >Filler episodes
        You instead get filler episodes, which are nearly just as boring, and placed in terrible places. Some ppl quit watching before it gets to the good stuff (which is mostly content straight from the manga) and in other cases, almost mimic things that happen later, making those moments less impactful.
        >fake ending
        this is a double edge sword. but over all, the endings idea was kinda lame, but done well, despite being lame.

        FMAB
        pros
        >Far better story
        the best narrative ideas are here, and are more reasonable.
        >nearly no filler
        theres not really any filler episodes, but...

        cons
        >episodes drag on in the 2nd half
        due to waiting for the manga to finish, they had to just make scenes drag on. this kills your ability to finish the story outside of reading the manga
        >lack of emotional attachment
        my GF only saw FMAB, and never thought it was very emotional, nor ever got attached to the characters. I noticed this same pattern with many other people. I had a bias because i saw FMA 1st, and so i cared about the characters in FMAB, despite all the same scenes lacked the emotional punch the 1st had.

        Over all, I probably had it best, by having the emotional attachment, and then seeing the superior narrative from FMAB after.

        But if u care about character driven stories more, original will be better. if you care more about the overall narrative more, and or battle shounen, then FMAB.

        People who enjoyed Brotherhood moved on with their lives, obsessed contrarian chuds spent 100% of their time in this shithole and scan all boards for any mention of FMA so they can immediately post about how superior '03 was. In actuality it's a handful of people at most. Just like you could've figured that a significant portion of Ganker loved FFXV and Tabata until people figured out it's literally one severely mentally ill gay spamming every FF thread 24/7.

      TLDR: It's not an accident. FMA is engineered to be very appealing to normies or people who don't like "weeb stuff".

      It doesn't have the typical anime trappings sans tehe overabundance of slapstick, which is often the only part that gets criticized. The visuals are good, the faces are more well-defined instead of being blobs and the backgrounds are detailed and a bit paintinglike, the setting is very western and also sort of nostalgic, there are no pantsu or really any "anime cringy" moments outside of aforementioned slapstick. This alone makes it stand out against the majority of shonen. Characters fit into certain archetypes but an effort was made to make them seem just a bit more than that, at least for the main cast.
      The world, while magical, tries to uphold a vague sense of realism, making the show seem more mature than it may be is, there's practically no filler and each single episode makes it a point to end on a cliffhanger that leads into something bigger, which is not something many shows do at all, basically turning each episode into its own mini-arc, which is made even more enticing considering the whole plot revolves around mysteries and conspiracies within conspiracies, making you want to watch more. It also doesn't overstay its welcome, making you feel like every part of the puzzle has been pre-planned, which is often not the case for manga at all.
      The story is a smogasbord of everything: a bit of mystery, some sad "mature" themes, some comedy, some atmosphere, some romance, some magic, some edge without being too edgy/gory, some groundedness and militarism, a bit of a fairy-tale vibe, some smaller, personal somber moments as well as grand sweeping stakes and moments of grand scope. It tries to be a bit of everything without being skewed into one single direction and does each thing competently enough. It basically has everything an average joe loves about media without the curveball of culture shock that usually comes with such titles.

        This is probably a pasta, but it's correct.

        Very good analysis, nice job. I agree on most of your points, and would also add that unlike most anime with a clearly OP character that does everything while others suck their dick, in FMA there isn't a single character that doesn't have their defining moment. Everybody contributes and that's also why the last boss fight is my favourite since it has everyone throw everything at the boss, even if it is kinda bullshit that a god loses to humans.

              Aside from the silly ending fight, Edward's abilities are well balanced with his skills being showcased but still getting his ass kicked frequently.
              The worst thing about most shonen is the MC is either an overpowered retard the plot over relies relies on to zenkai boost the big bad (DBZ, OP) or it devolves into that (Naruto, AoT).

                This isn't really a problem for the same reason it's not a problem in the average Jackie Chan movie. The main character actually being vulnerable against specialists, having reasonable flaws such as automail failure, and going against people well above his weight class requiring teamwork and smart planning. These all allow for fights to remain interesting.

                Even knowing Edward has the ultimate plot armor there can still exist tension as losing is also not contingent on death.

        It's weird because every cliché that you've named that differentiate typical Anime from FMA are clichés that actually hold Anime back as an artistic medium.
        >Sameface blobs designed for the turboweebs/hikkis who don't like even a hint of western influence in their Anime.
        >TEEHEE PANTY SHOTS SO FUCKING FUNNY *FAP FAP FAP FAP*
        Personally, I don't see this as a cultural shock. It's true that Anime has very specific cultural thematics that will be confusing or even appear as immoral to the average non weeb westerner, but most of the Anime clichés are not specifically designed to pander to the average Japanese youth, they are specifically designed to attract weebs and hikkis.
        Every single fucking modern Isekai mass produced Anime that came out since SAO that isn't Overlord is a very obvious self-insert fantasy for the average asocial Japanese teen and 20-35 years old virgin hikki who may be requestionning their lives and see themselves as fuckups. It's full of tasteless "in your face" fanservice, no threatening character archetypes, Japanese traditions for the sake of displaying Japanese traditions regardless of the context and aesthetical setting, sameface artstyles that make it easier for artists to shit out character designs by the dozens, main characters with artificial flaws who almost never lose or struggle and are almost always handed the wins on a silver platter and feelgood morals for losers who need cartoons to remind them that they are not a dissapointment.
        For a generic Anime, FMA does break the standart and I think this is all in its honor.

        I'm convinced anime would've gone mainstream at least 20 years sooner if they dropped the pantsu coomer shit sooner. I don't think it's a coincidence that the second anime became hyper mainstream is the same exact time almost every show dumped it's braindead coomer bait. If MHA or Demon Slayer came out in 2005 everyone would be wearing velcro underwear that rides up their taint, screaming in front of an orange gradient background for 20 seconds, and every bad guy would speak like they have black lung and are trying to cough up a lougie. That shit's funny as a quick gag show but fuck watching that for more than an hour. Fairy Tail was probably the last holdout of these garbage tropes and everyone that watches it admits it's gutter trash.

        How do you explain the fact that Naruto is way more popular among normies than FMA? It has all of the typical anime tropes, aka "weeb stuff".

        If I remember the story correctly, only the West and East (Central/Xing specifically) should have alchemy/alkahestry, as its modern form was introduced by Father from beyond the gate and Hohenheim from Father. Xerxes did have some sort of Alchemy but was destroyed.

      Perhaps there are different forms of alchemy in other places that were discovered independently though.

      Show the new world, the in-universe version of "America", in which either it takes place before it gets discovered, with native americans/aztecs/incas doing cool shit with alchemy, or after the discovery of the new world, in which they are just being conquered and some alchemeists are stopping it or someshit because muh war bad or whatever.

      I mention this because despite seeming to be in late 19th centuary/early 20th centuary there is zero mention of an outside continent, island, or anything of that sort, despite at that time 90% of the world being explored already, that is assuming an America like landmass does exist far enough away from the main continents.
      It's not like it is that different from the real world, the FMA map looks like a panguea of some sorts but it still resembles Europe/Asia but without Africa, from the few shots of the map we've seen, unless FMA's earth is flat there could be some landmass in the other side of the world.

      It's a simple joke, Connie is fucking retarded so he is not understanding the implications of meeting up with a titan shifter who tried to kill him the last time she was awake.
      That or its his method of coping with the fact that he has to ally with the one who killed so many of his friends without even having the right to ask for an apology for the people she murdered, because the world is in danger and shit.

It is, however, quite entertaining despite it flaws due to the over-the-top presentation and managed to land on its feet, in the end, which is enough for many to remember it fondly. With time, these memories earn it a certain shine of nostalgy and classic.

      Or you know, Edward could have completely lost the ability to use Alchemy making him 100% a normal person. He still is missing his leg so he'll always have that reminder. And Alphonse while back in his body has chosen to deal with the many victims of alchemy such as the Chimera soldiers who so far have no easy way to become normal humans like they desire.

      Anime in general is a flawed medium in my eyes. Just read manga instead, its so superior that I cant believe I used to watch most anime that was airing.
      Based on your picks though, the 2011 HxH anime is pretty awesome, and one of the only examples I can think of where its superior as an anime.

      Gonna second this one. Rewatched the first season and it holds up. So far 5 episodes into 2nd GIG and it equally is consistent.

      I think it depends. if the anime in question is an adaptation I will always gravitate towards the source manga. There are a handful of adaptations I think stand close or equal to the source material like the first season of OPM and Baccano, but those are the exception to the rule. Anime's strength is the same as movies compared to graphic novels, the audio and visual feedback of seeing and hearing something in real time.

      If it is an anime original I have no problems with it.

      >2011 HxH anime
      Honestly ruined for me because of all the little changes made to the scale and scope of combat encounters. People might sing its praises but I remember people confused by how Kurapika survived the fight with Uvo and I watched it and realized they had both left out an explanation from the manga about Emperor Time, and massively inflated the destructive force of Uvo's Big Bang Impact to the point it left a baseball field crater in the ground instead of a person sized one. I didn't watch it entirely, and didn't care too, but it sounds to me it has all the usual issues an adaptation has with leaving out details and animators doing too much to make fights more "epic" along with some perceived issues with the narration during the CA arc that might have just worked better while reading it compared to hearing it.

      • 2 weeks ago

        I dunno, the uvo fight with kurapika seemed pretty well explained to me. And theres exposition with Kurapika's teacher on how nen works, and how limiting its power to certain scenarios/rules makes it able to far exceed the normal limits of the nen type. Emperors time is also pretty obvious.
        Nen in general doesnt make a whole lot of sense. But I never once thought Kurapika btfoing Uvogin despite his inexperience was a cop out because of just how damning making his abilities only reach their true potential against the troupe is.
        >might have just worked better while reading it compared to hearing it.
        Nah I was already getting filtered by the HxH manga being more bubble than manga until our boy took another break. The way its done in CA is odd, but I dont think theres a better way to do it unless youre literally willing to read a book.

          >Nen in general doesnt make a whole lot of sense
          This is where I disagree because one of the main things I enjoy about HxH is how consistent it is with its various systems and the consistency of nen abilities. To the point that I've predicted some powers based on character personalities and also guessed mechanics to abilities that were previously shown but subsequently explained in greater detail. There are still some contrivances and plot holes, but overall it's a fairly crunchy soft magic system.

          >But I never once thought
          And that's fine, I'm not saying people on /a/ are the majority of people watching 2011. But even on other websites I would see questions about what happened in the anime and it seemed consistent with at least my one observed fight where there was some issue in presentation or lack of information that led to confusion. These are things I do not like in adaptations because it might be subtle or not a huge issue in isolation. But enough inconsistencies from the source material will become apparent to anime-onlies even if they don't realize the reason for the discrepancy.

          And while I think it is largely a meme, some people unironically did watch the CA arc at 1.5x speed because of the narration.

          >Nah I was already getting filtered by the HxH manga being more bubble than manga
          I really wish people would both stop over exaggerating how much more exposition and dialogue is in the current arc compared to others. As well as realizing that like it or not this is in service to an arc with a major element of information management and political intrigue. You wouldn't fault a mystery series for having lots of dialogue and details for readers to sift through as well as the characters. But similarly this is still a manga and Togashi isn't just hiding from drawing things by using word bubbles.

          That's what the years long hiatuses are for.

        Hispanice & Wolf really caught me by surprise.
        At first you might think it's going to be your typical medieval fantasy with generic male MC catching attention of lewd supernatural female MC and shenanigans ensue.
        But the comfy atmosphere, interesting plots involving a traveling merchant plying his trade and wit in various situations, and the writing and dynamic between the two main characters really make it a great experience.
        It's wholesome without being overly cheese, and paced really well; expertly balancing tension and drama with light-hearted situations and banter.
        Probably not for everyone, but if you're looking for some good, comfy late-00s anime, you really can't go wrong.

              >I never watched it but what do you mean.
              Going to pretty much spoil both shows but the main plot twist of big O is Paradigm City is a simulation being handled by a woman named Angel, either directly or through a program replica of her. This simulation is mainly fixating on creating a fantasy scenario where her love interest Rodger Smith, is obtainable where as her romantic rival is reduced to a cold emotionless machine who is supposed to fail, but doesn't.

              Obviously with how Big O's second season is handled not all of Angel's Simulation is really made clear, only that it was imperfect and people like Shwarzwald figured it out.

              In SSSS. Gridman, the setting is a bit different but the premise is the same In this plot, locale Otaku Akane is living within her own personal simulation but unlike Angel she is fully aware that she's "god". She has a pact with a cyber demon to basically use Kaijus to bully her own setting into creating outcomes she desires which causes internet ultra man to invade her fan fiction reality in attempt to save her poor OCs from endless abuse and to jail the cyber demon

                Forgot to add there are other similarities
                While Dorothy might still be a robot in the true reality, it's also possible she isn't and the android element was Angel's personal feelings on the character. A means in which to make it harder for Rodger to fall for her which is highlighted by the repeated conversation about if "Dorothy were real would Rodger fall in love with her?"

                In SSSS Gridman Akane is designed to be the hottest girl in school with big booba, but still acts and behaves like an autistic shut in. The character Rikka on the other hand is important in the plot as Yuta, the main character, is the only boy who prefers Rikka over Akane. This is because Rikka is actually how Akane actually is physically in real life. Despite inserting herself as the perfect girl she still had enough ego to insert her true self in her fiction and in this fiction the boy she actually likes IRL prefers her true self compared to her ideal self .

                That might not be 1:1 but I found it kind of a similar concept, the difference being the fixation of wish fulfillment by both "gods" of their respective setting.

                Oh, I see, thanks, in that way they really seem similar. Though is mostly the ending, right? Not as much as the rest of the episodes

                With Big O it's pretty much at the ending though it was always hinted throughout since Sharzwald. In Gridman it happens about halfway through when the Kaiju e-boi says the infamous line There is no world beyond this city just like Sharzwald does.

          It's basically a monster of the week show with actual character development, a good mystery with a satisfying resolution, great fights inspired by Tokusatsu and overall a really enjoyable Saturday morning cartoon vibe. It might not be for everyone, but if something of that piques your interest, it's really really good. I found the sequel to be even better, though it had different strengths compared to Gridman.

      This is the only time I'll ever admit it but Chibi Maruko-chan is actually kind of fun.
      I kind of feel bad calling it garbage but it is a literal children's series with very simple animation.

    Freedom Planet 1 and 2. There is no specific part, the entire story feels like a preteen's edgy fanfic for a childrens cartoon.

    Brotherhood was fine, 03 delved way too deep into retarded edgelord territory. Reminder that Winry was supposed to be the one who got raped and impregnated in the 03 version instead of Rose but Arakawa herself stepped in and told them to fuck off so they used a literal who character like Rose instead.

        It's one of the major plot points of 03. She was raped by some random soldier and had his kid. She becomes a central character in the later half of 03 because of this.

      It's a piece of whatever's behind the door of truth (God). Since God = Knowledge, it's a small (but vast) piece of Knowledge itself, which was extracted from the gate.

        Wasn't it just a homunculus made from hoenheim's blood?

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          They used the blood for whatever the experiment needed, but essentially what they did is extract the small piece of the black-eye void.
          Basically it's the whole new-age stuff with Oneness and Duality, where One was split from itself and became ignorant, trying to return and suprass God, which made the ending ironic.
          I don't think all of it is stated directly, but all the clues are obvious enough, and the Homunculus does say that he "doesn't want to go back" in the ending, and does possess vast knowledge right from birth, which is accidentally what happens to anyone who sees the gate: they get a shitload of information drilled into them.

            So if the black tentacle thing behind the gate is god, what's the white humanoid in front of it? Some kind of test?

              It's Truth (also possibly God). It's basically the "negative twin" of whoever sees it, it's conscious and conscioussness. I guess you could say it's humankind's collective mind, which is why it speaks in many voices as well.
              Whether it's related to the entity beyond the gate (which Father also calls God), is a separate entity altogether, or they are both the same thing is never clearly stated.

      It's a god particle bound in Van Ho's blood. It has divine knowledge but human perception. It's goal according to Truth was to return to god, but because it was human it interpreted this as becoming god.

      >Cowboy bebop

      But that's it... this post made me realize how many fucking animes I've seen with fanservice

      [...]
      I know that, I was asking HOW it was created, what did they exchanged to create it? It's never stated in the manga as far as I remember

      I don't know about maturity, but Lain *is* its atmosphere and tone. Lain is a coming-of-age story of a child in the Internet age, being exposed to a wide new world that your parents don't fully understand both in the outside world and through a monitor in the comfort of your own room all the while you're dealing with the usual existential questions of adolescence. And it was made in the late 90s, which leads to plenty of people calling it "ahead of its time".

      At least, that's how the anime is. The Lain game is an alternate story that goes in a different direction exploring the minds of a young adult psychiatrist deeply dissatisfied with her life, and that of Lain, her patient.

          Don't listen to that retard. Eureka Seven is one of the best anime series ever made and one of the most classic 2000s anime that I remember to this day. It's one of those very rare examples in fiction where everything has an incredible feeling of honest humanity and emotion to everything. It has an incredibly colorful cast of characters, a wonderfully beautiful world, and an amazingly crafted story about the timeless and universal message of growing up, moving on, changing, finding a place in the world, and living to the fullest. It has one of the best romances I've ever seen in anything and wonderful aesthetic and music. It's one of a kind type of show that you will probably never get again. A true lightning in a bottle of sorts. I highly recommend it. Watching it for the first time (especially back in the times when it came out) for the very first time is a truly one of a kind experience.

          But I have. I've watched the original Yamato, I've even watched Harlock and GE999.

          Yamato 2199 without a doubt is one of the greatest remakes of all time and received universal praise both from old fans and new fans when it released.

            Yamato Resurrection utterly mogs it in every way as a modern Yamato production. 2199 has zero Yamato flavor, it's generic space adventure shit with zero gravitas, as you would expect from something produced by an ecchi studio.

              I'd love to live in whatever universe you came from where Yamato 2199 is generic, sounds like a cool place.

        Everything after the original TV anime is great. I don't care about whatever other shit he's done.

    I miss when Bones Studio was making their own unique original series with their own stories and characters in the 2000s. Now they only do adaptions of popular shounen shit.
