Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
Fullmetal Alchemist and Last Exile are both about two young boys trying to make things right, journeying across the country to find a way to restore their lives to what they once were. They both also have a very good story and very likeable characthers. If you liked one, I think you'll like the other.
The pair of close kids who've lost their parents and are out facing the world trying to prove themselves is a theme that both Last Exile and Fullmetal Alchiemist share. Also Alex Rowe (captian of the Silvana) and Roy Mustang (flame alchemist) share a likeness...but that just might be me. Also the animation is quite similar, although Last Exile relies more on computer generation in many scenes. However Fullmetal Alchemist is definitely a better anime, so Last Exile may be a step down...but if it's the other way around, enjoy! See!? The cup is always half full!
Last Exile and FMA gave off a really similar feel- the two orphaned teenagers who grew up together striking it off on their own, becoming entangled in the military, meeting similar types of people, the conflict between various factions of people, as well as the technology in the two series looked pretty similar. Additionally, they're clearly intended for the same audience, so if you liked one, check out the other.
Both of these anime involve a a wide cast of characters and some interesting technology (automail and van ships). Both are set in an industrial-age like setting, and both are are excellent adventure stories. The main characters are a duo of youngsters that follow in the footsteps of their parents.
A young duo in search of a legendaric object, one by choice the other by chance. The protagonists both excel in their field desite young age. Throw in some cool technology and epic scenes, and at least I am sold!
Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?
FMA and Mai-Hime are high quality and have a similar pace and feeling. In both, you wander into the darkness and find secrets you might not have wanted to know about. There is plenty of sadness and drama that make them feel even more similar, yet they are so different that they'll still end up surprising you.
Both FMA and My-Hime have a very nice mixture of action, comedy, drama and romance. The comedy in My-Hime is awful, but the series owns FMA in drama and romance. The fight scenes are well-animated and the music is flawless and fits in every scene. I think you'd rate both of these the same once you see them.
Both anime feature a good mix of action, comedy and plenty of character development. The combination of dark theme's with a strong-willed lead character gives these shows an epic feeling, and the comic relief makes them easy and pleasant to watch.
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
Both stories have very in-depth plots. They evolve over time and do a great job at sucking you in. The complexities of Fullmetal mesh well with the developments of Inuyasha.
InuYasha focuses more on a romantic aspect while including fighting and demons, while Full Metal Alchemist revolves around the main characters' comradery and the magic they possess. Each series includes oodles of fighting and an entertaining plot line.
Both series are about more than just action and fighting, they are a journey into humanity, friendship, and love. If you liked one, you will surely enjoy the other.
If you enjoyed inuyasha or Fullmetal alchemist, then i think youd enjoy the other. While they seem to have two totally different stories they are also a lot alike. Both shows consist of monsters or demons that tend to give them problems, and both shows are fully pascked with tons of ation and fighting!!! if you liked one of them, you should start watching the other!
These shows are both long adventures with plenty of action and comedy. Inuyasha excels at having entertaining action and fun characters and Fullmetal Alchemist does much of the same. Even though Fullmetal Alchemist has a much better overall plot that Inuyasha if you were entertained by one your bond to find something you like in the other.
Both of these animes are about a young person searching for an extraodrinary rock that grants everything you could wish for. But getting that rock takes an harrowing journey, self-realization, and a dash of drama.
Dr Kenzo Tenma is a genius surgeon working in post-Cold War Germany who has a bright future ahead of him. He is admired by his colleagues, loved by his patients, and due to marry his boss' daughter, the beautiful Eva Heinemann. One day, when two patients in desperate need of emergency surgery are wheeled into his hospital, Tenma faces a terrible choice of saving the orphaned boy who came first or the mayor of Düsseldorf, whose recovery would raise the hospital's profile and boost his own career. Against the demands of his superior, Tenma does what he believes is right and saves the child. However, his decision not only damages his prospects, but unleashes a chain of events so horrific that it might have come from the depths of his worst nightmares. Laden with guilt, Tenma begins a journey across Germany in search of a formidable young man who will challenge his morals, his love for life, and his very sanity.
Just like Fullmetal Alchemist, Monster is a dark anime thriller which is bound to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Monster, though, makes no attempt to cater to children, and does not use chibi moments to soften the atmosphere or to cut the tension. Furthermore, because the storyline flows so fluidly in Monster, suspense is well-paced and deftly managed. For those not faint of heart who enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist and its roller-coaster epic, I highly recommend Monster.
Monster, while much more grounded in reality than FMA, shares a lot in common with it. They both have well-developed characters, and an intense plot. I will say Monster is probably less depressing however...
Both FMA and Monster are the type of series chock full of twists and turns to keep you guessing. If you enjoyed one series, then you'll definitely enjoy the other.
Although the series are about 2 completely different subjects, they both succeed incredibly in fleshing out characters in the series and in the emotion that they both convey. They're both very methodical with their progression and lead the watcher through a compelling storyline that leaves you wanting to know more.
Both animes are dramatic detective thrillers with analogous plot: a kind and somewhat naive protagonist does a good deed that results in terrible consequences, and he embarks on a long journey to correct his mistake, where he gets opposed by inhuman murderers manipulating other people. The main differences are the setting and the protagonist's age, but the essential similarities still make them a fine recommendation for each other.
"You've Lord of the Rings'd the series!" as my father would say. Both of these anime have the main characters wandering around a vast world, looking for something or someone important. Corrupt politicians, an underworld of danger, and some mind-bending mysteries await the protagonists as they search. With a wide, well-written cast and beautiful landscapes, these anime have plenty in common.
Sumiregawa Nenene is an author who hasn't published a book in years. However, at a book signing in Hong Kong, things go fascinatingly awry. For starters, her guides are three sisters who operate a detective agency: Maggie, Michelle, and Anita. Then there's the attacks on Nenene's life, and her only line of defense is the three sisters -- who can all use paper as weapons, tools, and even transportation. But can their powers protect Nenene from the mysterious forces that not only want her, but all the precious books of the world...?
FMA, like ROD TV, has siblings working together and a similar feel. The dialog is smart, and the characters are similarly engaging. In both series the characters have special abilities, In FMA "alchemy" allows them to focus energy to transmute objects, while In ROD TV, the ability is confined to paper.
FMA and ROD have a key common factor: the bond shared between the main characters. Both the brothers Elric and the "paper sisters" are emotionally attached at the hip; as a result, the two series have a similar feel. In both series, no matter how many horrible events occur, the bond is what keeps the plot mostly upbeat so that the viewer gets a good mixture of tragedy and comedy.
Both FMA and ROD have sibling/family connections, government involvement, and are action-packed, serious, and humourous at the same time. Though FMA has more humour. They also have 'magic' -- a different type in both; FMA is based on alchemy and ROD is based on paper. FMA and ROD have historical facts in them and are set in older times, if not only for a couple episodes. The pair are quite similar and yet completely different at the same time.
