Maybe I'm alone in this department but...

After watching the first episode I felt incredibly cheated. I felt like someone close to me had not only jabbed a knife in my back, but they had wiggled the sharp object inbetween my spine and THEN stop stabbing me.


Melodramatic, yes...I know.


Yet that was how I felt, maybe I was expecting too much when I first heard about a new FMA anime, but I couldn't help it, after all I had been informed that this would follow the manga and I guess - to some degree - it has. However, the introduction of the character's e.g Hughes, happened incredibly fast, and i'm sure it would've left me slightly baffled if I was a total n00b to FMA.


Still, I find the change in art-style interesting and I'm not entirely amused over Mustang's new voice actor - BUT HEY! Less of the negatives and more of the positives, eh?


The first meetings between Roy and Edward within the second episode made up for the previous crap they rubbed in my eyes, I especially enjoyed how they had managed to sick to the manga yet give it a little twist.


Overall, I'm lost. Do I like this or not? I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think two episodes is enough to judge, it does hold potential though, so I'll continue watching this series to see it's progression.


:D

I did feel like the first episode was kind of a filler, but I do think it will only get better, especially once we get into the manga-exclusive plot lines.
I can't decide if I like the new animation or not. Does everyone look younger to you, too?

Yeah, i agree with the whole 'looking younger' thing and i'm glad someone else thought that, i thought it was just me...thank god.
I'm still containing mixed views over the style of animation though...
:D And i also guess that filler was entertaining but...well, i was all pepped up for the new series and my first thoughts were W...What the hell was THAT

yea i was shocked by the first episode but it grew on me i guess. i just hope that if or when they do a dubbed version it doesnt go down the toilet that and i hope that if it stays close to the manga like it has been then i hope it can rnaslate well
also whats with the cornello thing in episode 3. he like turnned into something that resembled gluttony in conquerer of shambala. It was kinda cool ill admit but i still find it odd
