    I just finished watching the whole serie of Full Metal Alchemist, and if I had to conclude it in one word: wonderfull. Although there is one thing that bugs me, after the last episode, I find it a little incomplete

    I would've like to see Ed coming back to the world on the other side of the gate, since Ed sacrificed his "journey" with Al to bring him back to life.

    Except for that, it's a very great serie, and I recommend it to anyone who likes to watch anime.

    Now I have a question, I've watched Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Shamploo, Hellsing and Full Metal Alchemist completely, is there something else that you would advise me to watch?

    I saw it too some months ago (fansub [​IMG] ), and it's a great series! [​IMG]

    Probably the part in the spoiler (there is a bug, if you use the normal answer you see the spoiler between spoiler tag instead of the hidden part) will be revealed in the FMA Movie. [​IMG]

    theres a Full Metal Alchemist movie (Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shambala) that take place after the tv series but you have to wait until its out on dvd for it to be subbed

    "One Piece, Bleach, Naruto" great action anime
    "Gundam seed" & "Gundam seed Destiny" if you like giant mechs

    there is many more great series out there but just
    goto anidb.info and check trough the list and see which series you'll like and also who sub them

    I have some good animes for you [​IMG]

    Berserk (25 eps), Elfen Lied(13 eps), Rurouni Kenshin (95 eps + 4 or 6 movies)

    These have great stories with great characters [​IMG]

    Hajime no Ippo and Hikaru no Go is also two very good animes, although Hikaru no Go isn't as exciting as the others. It just have some greeaaat believable characters.

    Other than these I hope you are watching Bleach [​IMG] It's one of the best animes I've ever seen. New episodes each week (46 so far).

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I had to download the whole series, because they don't even broadcast anime on tv here [​IMG] (oh yeah, they do, pokémon [​IMG])

    And if I have to buy anime on a dvd, then it will be too expensive (25 euros per dvd [​IMG]) so I can only download anime.
    I am indeed waiting untill the movie of fma get's subbed, I hope it does solve the somewhat unexplained ending.

    And for other anime, I don't like things that are ultramodern, with robots and stuff, so that's a no-no for me (they might be good, but I just don't like it). I also heard that Full Metal Panic is good, not sure though.

    I don't want to download anime that has more than 70 episodes, because I have limited internet (10gb/month download :\)

    Full Metal Panic is pretty awesome... Very similar name to Full Metal Alchemist [​IMG] But has nothing to do with eachother other than the fact they are both animes.

    Tales of Phantasia is out 3 eps of the OAV, only one more to go, it's definatly one of the best I've seen. Due to the feeling, so FRAEKING great feeling. You don't need to have played the game either, which makes it awesome.

    One of the most believable animes I've seen is Monster. It's dark and 100% serious. (except for that big teethed rat-looking guy) Damn great story too. I recommend it to everyone beyond age of 15.

    How large is the whole collection, like all the episodes of the serie? I'm interested in downloading it too, just for a pastime when I'm not playing GW :-)

    Ive seen the first 18 episodes, but got tired of it... its too far-fetched IMO

    liked the beginning a lot, but every episode is very much like the others and that bothered me a lot.

    I would add Witch Hunter Robin and Stellvia of the Universe to that list, and the only reason why I'm not screaming about Monster is that it isn't finished yet (loving it!). I also have yet to see Bleach, but I intend to. (Bandwidth currently being eaten by Mythbusters.)

    Also, OVAs are worth checking out at this point. I actually have to say that what I've seen of Tales of Phantasia is that it sucks (I haven't seen ep 3). It's like telling The Lord of the Rings but starting at book 4 (halfway through Two Towers) and skipping all the travel time. Crying shame, since Tales of Phantasia (game) is better than even Chrono Trigger, IMHO.

    However, other OVAs at this point are definitely up your alley. I'd particularily suggest anything by Miyazaki.




    SilverGenix: The first few FMA episodes ARE rather similar. This is because it is backstory. The series gets astonishingly better as you move on, to the point of you actually screaming at the end of an episode that you want more. Literally. Continue to give it a shot.

    If anyone cares, I made a quick FMA Animation. It's from the episode where Ed creates the giant cannon to fight Mustang.

    [​IMG]


    EDIT: and yes, I know the hair still sticks up when he's on the cannon. I'll fix that later.
