Certain characters from both the anime and the manga have the same names and faces but different origins to their stories. (I.e., in the manga Homunculi can only be made by Father. In the anime, they're the result of failed human transmutation. Etc.) The Elric brothers' father Hohenheim, is unique among these characters as his origins were vastly different from either story and his name was different. In this anime, Hohenheim of light was the first Alchemist to create a Philospher's stone and began jumping bodies in order to live longer. In the manga and second anime, Von Hohenheim was a slave who was "gifted" with an immortal body through the Philospher's stone that was bestowed upon him by Father. See more »

A story with an ending no one I know could even guess
This series has one of the most amazing endings I've ever seen...ANYWHERE. Out the half dozen other people I know who've seen the entire series, not one of us was able to even come close to guessing the ending. FMA reminds me a bit of Harry Potter just in that, in both series, you have 1) child prodigies, 2) engrossing character growth and plot development, and 3) a story that individuals of all ages can appreciate and enjoy. One thing I appreciated and enjoyed very much about the series is that it's like one long fable--there's moral after moral after moral. As a side-note, it's one of the only animes that I've seen which spans several years, allowing for a lot more character growth and focus on the players in the story than is typically seen in most animes. Probably the single best anime that I've ever seen, and certainly in my Top 10 favorite stories of all time. Like Harry Potter though, it may at first appear to be a kids' story, but toward the end it's oriented more toward adults. Highly recommended.
