If you're looking for anime similar to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, you might like these titles.
Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!
Huge strech I know but both series take place in worlds ruled by magic and the peapole who contoroll that magics lifes. Bouth also have simmiler fight scens and very simmiler animation and art styles.
Both series are similar in many ways:
-They are in nice fantsy world,
-Both are about some kind of special people with uncommon abilities fighting for sake of their faction (Alchemists for military, mages for guilds).
-In both friends and trust are important
-Fights are similar sometimes
-In both abilities are based on magic circles (less in Fairy Tail but still)
These two have a lot similarities. Magic <> Alchemy. Both Ed and Lucy faces the fact Magic/Alchemy can also be used to do bad things. If you liked Brotherhood or Fairy Tail you'll most certainly like the other one aswell.
Both series involve the usage of magic (either in the form of Alchemy or otherwise). Brotherhood is the more serious and methodical of the two; whereas, fairy tail is more whimsical and comical.
Both Fullmetal and Fairy Tail are similar in the sense that they both take place in a world where people have magical abilities. Fairy Tail is more of a fun entertaining anime and Fullmetal is more dark and intense, but they have similar elements.
The story for both are highly intriguing making you want to watch more and more while also delivering great comedy and un-canny plot twists
The anime's themselves are not similar, but the world and setting they take place in is very much so. In the world of Fairy Tail, magic is used as a commodity and only exists within 10% of the population. In the other world, alchemy can be performed by anyone, but only a fraction of the population has the drive and intelligence to understand it. Each also sport an alternate reality that is the opposite of their respective worlds.
Both of them from the first episode made me fall in love with them. The plot is just epic. The sound is great,once I heared it, it got stuck in my head. The animation is similar.
Loved them both. They are a bit different in syles but they were a must watch amine that once you are hooked you simply can not stop watching.
There is nothing similar about the series at all Fairy tail is awful fanservice garbage that cannot make a good plot or have decent villains. Every damn arc the same thing happens its really repititive and its actually an insult that anyone would compare this garbage to outstanding series like FMA brotherhood.
People shouldn't outright lie in their recommendations just because they like this series a lot. FMA has a serious plot that makes sense and Alchemy is a mixture of science and magic while Fairy tail has a lot of mini arcs where good guys win thanks to plot hole.
There are a lot of differences between the two, there are also a few similarities. They both fight for what they love and believe in, although Fullmetal Alchemist is a little more serious, where Fairy Tail is more fun and easy-going.
Honestly, I think both of these are amazing anime/manga's to say the least. While FMA:B has a good amount of blood, violence and humor, it's also one of the darker anime's I've seen. If you want a more light hearted version of it, I would reccomend Fairy Tail. It doesn't have the extra blood, genocide, war and serious issues like FMA:B does.
They both have very well thought out stories, also the animation and the characters are to die for. They both will give you so many feels. Fairy Tail and FMA:B are all about Family and Teamwork, plus a little (and I do mean little) romance as a bonus. I enjoyed both and have re-watched them, and will rewatch them over and over because they are that great.
Both shows have a very detailed plot line and if you like one then you are bound to love the other :)
I love both of these series! Fairytail is more comedic than Fullmetal Alchemist but that's not to say it's not a tear jearker, as you get more into the seasons, the more the show tugs at your heart strings. Both of these shows have action but Fullmetal's is more gritty and dark.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Both series have limits in terms of how characters can use their abilities. In order to use something, you must also give something back in return.
In Fullmetal Alchemist/Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, it's the concept of Equivalent Exchange.
In Darker than Black, a contracter can only use his or her power if they pay up a fee, which could range from anything strange like eating cigarettes to setting up patterns with pebbles.
Both Animes have to do with people who have individual powers. In Fullmetal Alchemist, each alchemist has a trademark that they use to complete their goals, while Darker Than Black's contractors have specific powers that they can use. Both shows also deal with giving something up in exchange for power. Fullmetal Alchemist uses the philosophy of "Equivalent Exchange" meaning that in order to obtain something, something of equal value must be given up first. Darker than Black's contractors have to pay a specific price everytime they use their power. There are quite a few similarities between the two, Darker Than Black has less comic relief than Fullmetal Alchemist, and the story is not as easy to follow, but I highly reccomend it to anyone who enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Darker than Black and FMA Brotherhood both focus on the same rule: Equilvanent Exchange. Both series really focus on this as the basis for their abilities. In order to give there must be equal take, and for some the price is very high. FMA: Brotherhood and Darker than Black both feature amazing fights, deep characters, and a very fantastic setting. Both are quite epic stories.
I actually watched Darker Than Black on a whim because it was recommended if you also liked Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I was not disappointed.
Both series have characters with amazing powers, each different from the others. These powers are not limitless. In FMA, you have the law of equivalent exchange. In DTB, you have the payments the contractors must make after using their powers
Also, the stories of both series are engrossing and well executed. You will not find boring filler episodes that do not move the plot forward.
If you liked either one of these series, you're almost guaranteed to like the other.
In both animes the story is amazing. The characters are very differential and nicely done. The graphic is beautiful and they are the animes, that you want to rewatch.
Both animes have a darker quality to them and have individuals with their own special powers. FMA: Brotherhood is definitely more funny, but both have awesome, powerful main characters.
I THINK THAT ITS A REALLY GOOD ANIME. my mom who hates and cant stand anime or vilence loved is very very much and watch every Fullmetal Alchemist that was created and then some. so yeah it perfection in the making
I would say that This one is a great one to watch because like Fullmetal, there is a great story. Like Eureka 7 and Fullmetal, this is the fine work of BONES. They never fail me, and this one is no different. Dont watch the second season of this, because they ruined it. As far as everything else goes though, this is a good one to watch, animation, story, characters, action, just enough comedy, depth, depth depth. This will keep you intruiged right up until the very end.
FMA and DtB (KnK) share the same emotional stories full of self-discovery punctuated by heart-pumping, adrenaline-injecting action. Great watches on both parts.
In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
Both very good Shonen Anime with a mix of comedy, and action. While FMAB has the superior story. They both have great laughs that don't take away from the serious plot.
Similar like Bleach/Naruto. Funny, Shounen, partners. Good plots, stories, friends. Both fantasy. Not to mention they're in the same magazine and crossed over in the front pages many times
While both seem to take a different path on how they do it, Soul Eater and FMA:B both have a simular sense fo humor and both touch into a serious story. Though FMA:B is a little more serious and realistic than Soul Eater, while Soul Eater tends to be more on the comical side of the spectrum it still has many dramtic parts.
In other words, If you liked one, you should at least try the other.
Soul Eater and FMA:B have epic fight scenes. Haha. But Soul Eater is more like comic relief, whereas FMA:B is a bit thought-provoking and serious. Still, there are many funny moments in both animes. I personally enjoyed Soul Eater and FMA:B very much.
Both FMA: Brotherhood and Soul Eater are setted in fantasy worlds, have good action scenes and will make you laugh in many moments, but I have to say that FMA: Brotherhood has a way better storyline than Soul Eater. But if you liked one, it's really hard don't like the other ^^
These are both action packed, with interesting characters and are a hoot to watch! FMB has a bit more depth with better character devolpement but they can do that as it's longer running and meant to be a bit more serious and heart breaking. You'll fall in love with them both!!
They were both made by Bones, have similar humor, and they both progress through the plot similarly as well. :D
The humor is pretty similar and they both captivate you if your into the 'abnormal' type of thing!
The kingdom of Liones is thrown into turmoil when the king's Holy Knights are corrupted by a distinctly unholy demonic power. The land's only hope is a band of powerful warriors known as The Seven Deadly Sins - an exiled group of oddballs who seem to spend as much time fighting each other as they do fighting their enemies. Princess Elizabeth desperately seeks their aid, but the leader of her would-be saviors turns out to be an undersized pervert with a broken blade and a talking pig! They are soon joined by a jealous giant, a fussy fairy, and an immortal bandit pining over his lost love. Can these people really be the legendary heroes she's looking for?
What makes them very similar is that both shows have a certain group of people where every individual is representing one of the seven deadly sins.
Also, both shows are based on adventure and action.
Both include a cast of characters based off of the Seven Deadly Sins. They also both have cartoonish animation styles and lighthearted comedy mixed in with all the action.
Both are set in a fantasy world, where the characters are searching for something and end up having to stop a corrupt government. Some of the characters also represent the seven deadly sins, and there's even some royalty thrown into both.
Fullmetal Alchemist and the Seven Deadly Sins are overwhelmingly similar, and if you like one you are bound to like the other.
What's that? Both animes have characters named after the Cardinal Sins? Well, that would make them similar. But what really ties these two are the over-the-top powers wielded by government-recognized people (Holy Knights are pretty much State Alchemists). And then, there's your leading guy. The blonde shorty with a lot of power.
I agree, FMAB fans would like TSDS.
i dont really know the reason but i liked fma brothebhood and nanatsu no taizai they are very good animes i think you should watch them
Both series involve magic, but in FMA its alchemy, not magic, but its almost the same thing. They both have a part in which a character(s) searches for something that can make them happy; FMA is the stone they look for, and Seven Deadly Sins is the fountain of youth that Ban finds.
They are very similar and nI watched both and loved both so ye I need 100 characters so skjfhiujsahfiofgsdfghsdgsdgs
An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.
While the focus of both of these shows is somwhat different, both have a similar tone. If you liked the mix of comedy with action in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, then it may be worth checking out D. Gray-man as it shares that same sort of mix.
D.Gray-man has a fairly similar feel to FMA: Brotherhood. The main characters have many similarities, which make them easier to relate to and keep in memory. Both have fun action filled episodes along the way of a great story line to keep you entertained as well.
Both FMA and DGM are dark yet funny tales of searching for something that will make the main characters lives easier and help those around them. The character development in both anime is amazing and will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. The only downside between the 2 is that DGM as a little bit of filler instead of a continuous adventure. If you liked one check out the other.
The themes are very different but both animes give the same feeling. Great storyline which makes you want to watch more but also silly moments that make you laugh. Also both main characters have difficult pasts but a goal that keeps them going on.
Allen Walker in D. Gray Man is in a very similar setting: orphan child who finds a family in a military environment.
The values are similar in these two series: friendship, loyalty, honor, fighting.
The adventures are more episodic in Allen's case. But the characters are very different: Ed is a very straightforward person: his mystery is elaborated in details right in the first episode, his motives are clear and unchanging, and he is kind of selfish. He is very impulsive and very loving.
Allen is on the other hand distant from other people, but he is lovable, too. He is different in one very important quality: self-sacrifice. He is not that famous or popular like Ed, but he gains more friends than him.
Good picture and took time to check fighting styles plus clothes craftsmanship. I see the meaning someone always having to choose over life or death totally A on my must see anime.
D.Gray-man is just like a better, longer version of FMA:B ,only downside is that it got cancelled in the middle and episode count is relatively high
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
There's a lot of similarities to be found in Code Geass and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood when it comes to the strong feeling of brotherhood shared between the main characters.
They also have to deal with the strong military forces present in their world, the Britannian Empire in Code Geass and the State Military in Fullmetal.
Two Anime like a Game of Chess
Do you enjoy the suspense of a dramatic plot that barely ever slows down? Do you like characters outsmarting eachother on regular basis? Like wicked plot-twists and heavy quality drama? Like the word EPIC? These two gems have it both...
While FMA Brotherhood has an alternative 1900 setting with alchemy as a form of magic, Code Geass has a future scenario with Mechas being the weapon of choice.
In their core, both share complex, original characters and both series main appeal is the suspense-filled plot, that's a lot about strategy and epic battles. They also share philosophical themes: world revolutions, thirst for power, immortality and sacrifices.
Code Geass and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood are two animes that combine epic action with a thrilling plot. Both explore mature themes like human experimentation, genocide, and immortality. They each take place in a country ruled by a tyrannical regime, and the plot in both focuses on political intrigue and has an endless variety of surprising twists and turns.
Both animes have a huge amount of action with characters hiding their true personality. Both main characters suffer a huge amount to suceed. Strategies have to be formed (There is also a scene in both animes were there planning a plot with chess). In a way alchemy is like geass which is a nice magic like property. All in all these are must want anime.
Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.
These shounen animes have the same basic premis. A group of young specially skilled heroes in search of adventure and to defeat the evil that threatens the greater good around them. Great battles and comedy hijinks accompany them on there journeys. Whilst the theme changes slightly with each anime the engaging story, great characters, exciting fights and comedy are ever present.
Both animes have a world in which the characters can use powers. Brotherhood has Alchemy and Naruto has Jitsu's. Both animes also has a lot of action and a large cast of characters.
If you like Brotherhood, chances are you will love Naruto.
Both shows had a large cast of characters that develope really well. Naruto uses ninja arts and Fullmetal uses Alchemy. The fight scenes are very similar, the hero is losing the battle but finds strength through their friends to come back and win. The only complaint i could possibly have that sets them apart is that Naruto does not have quite the impact that fullmetal has. I watched the dub version, even though i was told not to, so it could just be the dubbed but it seemed to hold back, whereas fullmetal would hit you really hard with things like a man who combined his daughter and dog into a monster. If you liked Naruto you will love Fullmetal and if you liked Fullmetal, you will either love Naruto or dislike it depending on what you liked in Fullmetal.
Hot headed protagonist, both are blond and an orphan. Harsh life, lots of challenges, fights, violence, adventures etc. Interesting story, some conspiracies in the government and the MC helping people and those he love most. ( Naturo helping sasuke and sakura, Edward helping his brother. )Both anime have some really funny scenes too
Both stories follow stuborn fellas who are fighting for everyone, making friends wherever they go and making even the most evil characters into good ones at the end.
Two amazing stories fulfilled with love, friendship, trust and human inner beauty.
At the same time, two strong stories that talk about human sins, desire for apsolutism and sadness for the lost ones.
It's certainly worth checking them out.
Ten years before Shirou Emiya's and Saber's fateful meeting, Japan is the stage for the fourth Holy Grail War. Seven Masters, each with his own dreams, step forward to win the boon of the mystic relic. Into this fray comes Kiritsugu Emiya, the enigmatic "Mage Killer" who wants to use the Grail to make a better world. Can he, paired with the indomitable Saber win the War? Or will he fall to the ambitions of the other mages?
They both have dark themes and creative use of magic. Fullmetal Alchemist has less ambiguous protagonists and antaganists, but both shows are excellent about developing character motivations.
They are both great shows, and follow magic, great characters, good premise and a nice plot. I believe you will enjoy both of these shows.
Both are good animes, that are about fantasy related things but one is about that being in a non-fantasy world and the other about the darker side of it. Both are fun animes to watch and overall pretty good
What makes these two so compatibe? Circles. Now, hear me out, the circles are magical and use alchemic theory.
Both anime also have: homunculi, sword fights, at least one very muscular slightly flamboyant man, and enough drama for a Spanish soap opera. (Ok, maybe not that much, but there's a lot of drama)
Both anime are Magic based. Great range of characters. Unique and original ideas for powers. Both have a good premise for their story.
Akiyuki lives on post-war Sentan Island, always rushing between the demands of his separated parents and his friends at school. But his carefree days come abruptly to an end when his school bus suffers an explosion, the first attack to plunge Sentan back into war. Akiyuki lives to find himself turned into a Xam'd, a mysterious creature, by the suspected cause of the explosion. Engulfed by Xam'd, Akiyuki is eventually saved by a red-haired girl, Nakiami, only to find himself torn away from those he loves. Now he must work to control and understand the creature within him, all while searching for his family and friends in a world steeped in the secrets and chaos of war.
The two shows share alot in common visually and both shows heavily focus a military thats conducting human experiments in turning humans into weapons.
Tone wise, the shows are very similar as well. Both of have a similar blend of drama/tragedy and really try to tug at your heart strings the whole time. FullMetal Alchemist has more action, while Xamd has more feel good moments.
Both of these shows have excellent characterization with a serious plot liberally spiced with slightly goofy humor. While FMA has better storytelling and overall plot than Xam'd, I think that Xam'd has even better characters and its action scenes can give FMA a run for its money. Xam'd is slower paced than FMA, but can be just as intense. Both are incredibly well-done.
As others have stated both series feature a story setting in which the miltary has a huge impact on the people and the main characters. Both stories feature characters who have to decided wether to join the military or go against them. Both stories feature amazing animation quality, a steam punk setting, and great supporting characters.
If you enjoyed X'amd: Lost Memories, you will probably also enjoy Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Both of these anime involve a major character striving to find something he has lost, and ultimately, to return home.
The action element in both titles is strong and they both equally demonstrate the power of a person with exceptional abilities, but instead of being an empowering sensation, this exceptionality is a distinct burden to both.
Both main protagonists are betrayed by those who lost their integrity under the duress of both perceived opportunities for power, and also for the opposite; as the result of their state acting as an emasculating force to those who weren't strong enough in character to see their actions for the internal hideousness they represented.
Both protagonists are on an adventure-like journey to find what is essentially to both characters; home. Knowing and despairing all the same that this was unlikely and most probably a fool's errand. However, their bond to find themselves again, and those they love, they both doggedly stick to their paths, with concern only for restoring their lives and their inner truths.
Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!
Both of these Bones studio animes have a mixture of science and fantasy in their structure. The protagonists are young men with skilled allies against a government bent on destruction. Both Ed and Renton show a determination to help the ones they love, no matter the cost to themselves.
Both of these shows are quite different and similar at the same time. While FMA is a fantasy, Eureka Seven is a sci-fi that focuses more on romance. However, they both have a similar sense of humour and similar protagonists. Both feature a child with his share of family problems who goes out into the world. Ultimately on quests to protect those they love while finding out that the world is much crueller than they thought.
I did like Fullmetal alchemist more and thought it was a bit more coherent in the story line and featured more adult themes.
The stories in these anime are extrememly in depth. they may not make sense at first, but keep watching if you arnt already mesmerized. Everything wraps up and furthermore there is a nice amount of action. The secrets are not thrown in your face right away, they take time and struggle to discover.
Both have many different characters, the characters are their own, meaning there are no identity crossovers. These are two animes that buckle up and bring a damn good story to life, something that too many animes nowadays lack.
