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...
Kiba is a wolf, one of the last of his kind, and his dream is to find Paradise in a world torn asunder by war. Cheza, the legendary Flower Girl, can lead him to Paradise, but there are others who desire her, and help from other wolves at his side may not be enough. Driven by his noble spirit, he will not forsake his quest.
Both of these anime center around the hero's quest - in FMA it's the quest for the philosopher's stone and in WR, the quest for paradise. Wolf's Rain is darker than FMA, but both have the same bittersweet undertones throughout.
This might sound like an odd one, but if you enjoy Earth-based worlds with a twist. Then you should at least enjoy the setting of Wolf's Rain. Character development, as well as nice story development are awarded to watchers in both.
Both Wolf's Rain and Full Metal Alchemist are about a determined party looking for something important that may not even exsist. In both journeys, the main characters go through trials that test their character and push them to the limits. I think they are both good series and if you like one, you are sure to enjoy the other.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Both of these great anime are about different sorts of magic. They are both very humorous and have similar character characteristics. Both of these anime are funny and i would strongly reccomend them. I enjoyed both of these anime very much and I think you will too.
Plotwise... character wise... even genre wise, these anime don't appear very similar.
However, during some parts Zero and especially the end of FMA, reminded me a lot each other. Both deal with the idea of "Earth" and how there's another world out there. I enjoyed how they made the connections between the current world and Earth (especially during WWII) and it's weapons.
If you like these ideas in anime, then you'll definitely enjoy both of these!! They're both fun in their own ways with a hint of humour and I believe the girl that plays Al is the same voice as Louise.
Both of these animes take place in a world full of magic where impossible became possible. If you like watching stories which are owerflowed with magic and humour you'll for sure like the one I reccomend.
Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.
Both Fullmetal Alchemist and 07-Ghost are series based on supernatural powers, and they both contain elements of religion, afterlife, and spiritual powers. The main charachter are in both series pretty simular in their views on justice and friendship. The comic relief is also simular in style. Animation-wise the series are very much alike both in character-, costume-, and enviorment design.
FMA and 07-Ghost share a lot of traits. The strong-willed and powerful young male lead, a lot of magic users with varying abilities, and some fantastic world settings. Add in a flare for situational comedy and some sadistic enemies, and the anime start to look really similar.
It is the year 3287, and the countries of Roxche and Soux-Beil have been feuding for one hundred and thirty years. In the country of Roxche, the young air force pilot Allison has just reunited with her childhood friend Wil; and together, they are about to embark on a grand adventure. Whether it's ending the war between the countries with the help of a legendary treasure, traveling into hostile territory, or helping restore a princess's right to the throne, Allison and Wil will complete their missions with kindness and honor.
Both of these shows contain characters which have to face war, the military, and mystery. But, FMA is fantasy whereas Allison to Lillia is not and it replaces the alchemy for planes.
They are both an adventure so go and watch them!
Allison and Lillia and Fullmetal Alchemist both involve a war type of setting. Each series focuses on the friendship between two people and their struggles in a time of uprising.
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
Both series are about a dark plotline: In FMA, they seek the philosopher's stone because it is said to hold to power to grant wishes without equivalent exchange; in Fate/Stay night, they seek the holy grail, which will grant both master and servant a fulfillment in any desire they wish. Both plotlines have twists and curves you don't see coming, and both end up realizing what they seek isn't all it's cracked up to be. If you like fullmetal, you're bound to like Fate/Stay night.
Fate/Stay Night and Fullmetal Alchemist are very similar to each other. They both focus on solving a certain mystery and to do so the heroes have to explore their world and powers, along with dealing with some very dangerous enemies. Both storylines are quite dark, and contain quite a few plot twists that will keep you guessing about what will happen next.
