Fullmetal Alchemist, Finished series one

So I finished Fullmetal Alchemist this weekend. Excellent series.

Why do I recommned it? I really liked the various themes through-out: Science v. Nature, militarization v. pacifism and some of the discussions of religious fundamentalism.  All of these, and more, are the basis for the characters developement and interactions. This integration allows the themes to be worked out in some detail and adding depth to the characters and the series. There are also some very funny moments and some just straight entertainment segments as well so, it aint all heavy. A 51 episode series with movies and a story arc that diverges from the original manga must have something that keeps you coming back, this does. I’m looking forward to getting the movie.
