This is one of the best series of all time. It shows what a manga/anime series can truly be if someone does it right. From start to finish, you understand the and respect the Elric Brother's motivations and determination as they find truths and consequences for their actions. The ending was great to, as it felt like the characters deserved to be there after their long struggle, not just being their for the sake of who they are.

As for the anime, I do prefer Brotherhood over the original, mainly because I did not like the alternate ending and the suddenness of all the extra realizations and the sudden need to kill off characters, but I still enjoyed it so people should definitely watch both.

All in all, no one should ignore this series, for it is just that good.
