General | Latest Info

Here's how Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood differ from each other. Create by Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the most popular and successful manga series of all time and has been developed into animation, movies and live-action. While it's commonplace for hit manga to be given anime adaptation treatment, it's not standard practice for there to be two separate series based on exactly the same material. This is the situation fans find themselves in with Fullmetal Alchemist. The Original Fullmetal Alchemist anime began airing within a year of the manga's publication debut. Working to different schedules, Arakawa encourages anime to deviate from her own story and come up with something original. Unfortunately, anime originals often tend to be divisive, and so it prove with Fullmetal Alchemist, leading to the production of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood in 2009, which was more authentic to manga. Consequently, both versions of anime begin in near-identical fashion. The backstory and goals of Edward and Alphonse Elric are the same, and most of the major settings and characters remain in place. Big plot points from the first act occur in both shows, and Arakawa's fictional universe works more or less by the same rules. But there's point around episode 30 mark where the 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist anime begins to diverge from manga and begins to spin its own yarn. Brotherhood begins animating untouched material by episode 10, which means there are plenty of differences between the two versions. Craig first began contributing to Screen Rant in 2016, several years after graduating college, and has been ranting ever since, mostly to himself in a darkened room. Having previously written for various sports and music outlets, Craig's interest soon turned to TV and film, where steady upbringing of science fiction and comic books finally came into its own. Craig has previously been published on sites such as Den of Geek, and after many coffee-drenched hours hunching over a laptop, part-time evening work eventually turned into a full-time career covering everything from zombie apocalypse to Starship Enterprise via TARDIS. Since joining Screen Rant fold, Craig has been involved in breaking news stories and mildly controversial ranking lists, but now works predominantly as a features writer. Jim Carrey is Craigs ' top acting pick and favorite topics include superheroes, anime and the unrecognized genius of High School Musical trilogy.

Fullmetal Alchemist

When the first Fullmetal Alchemist anime began to cover its own original material, story had yet to reveal its true villain, so it was forced into concocting a fresh antagonist-mysterious woman called Dante. Centuries old, Dante was the lover of the Elric brothers' father, Hohenheim. The couple manage to continuously cheat death using philosopher's stones, but after Hohenheim dumps Dante for Trisha Elric, his ex resorts to using Homunculi as her minions, promising she could restore their human forms. After Dante's quest for eternal life is expose, she's killed by her own servant, Gluttony, who she had previously sent on a mindless eating rampage. Dante doesn't exist in Brotherhood or original manga, and the main villain is instead revealed to be Father-original Homunculus. Similar to the 2003 anime but without the romance angle, Edward and Alphonse's dad is much older than he seem, and was once slave to the Alchemist who created Father based on Hohenheim's blood. Father takes on life of its own and conspires to ensure that the entire country of Xerxes would be sacrificed to provide him with proper physical form. Throw into the bargain, Hohenheim himself is made immortal, although he had no knowledge of conspiracy and later devoted his life to defeating Father.

The Homunculi

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood incorporates some of the most colorful characters in shonen history-if not in anime as a whole. Of course, not colorful in the context of positive and bubbly, but colorful in the context of diversity. This cast of characters and their diverse dynamics is undoubtedly one of the series ' strongest selling points. With that in mind, good character is a good character regardless of their aims and motives. Homunculi, main antagonist group of the series, are mostly good characters, albeit they might not be the most likable. That being said though, some of them are more likable than others. This list will be exploring just that, just how likable each and every member of this villain squad is.


Manga and 2009 anime

While serving as antagonists in manga, Homunculi of 2003 anime are created through different means. They are the result of alchemists attempting human transmutation to resurrect dead individual, costing them portions of their own bodies and creating horrific beings in the process. When results of these transmutations are fed to Red Stones, they gain shape reminiscent of human target of attempted resurrection. Two particular examples are Sloth and Wrath, created by Elric Brothers' and their teacher Izumi Curtis' attempt to bring back their mother and infant son respectively. Another is Lust who, in this incarnation, was the result of Scar's Brother trying to bring his lover back. Due to this imbalance, Homunculi are weakened in the presence of any artifact of the original resurrectee's corpse. In 2003 anime Homunculi serves as lieutenant of Dante in her efforts to create another Philosopher's Stone to continue her immortality and body-hopping. Dante creates several of them, eventually gaining Lust, Sloth, and Wrath in League with Her after three are fed Red Stones. As aforementioned, they are relatively immortal until exposed to remains of resurrectee, which will weaken them enough to be kill. Dante's actions and her relationship to Homunculi are similar to Father in manga: envy-Her jealousy of Hohenheim choosing to spend the rest of his life with Trisha Elric. Greed-Her goal is to obtain Philosopher's Stone, which will allow her to cheat death. Gluttony-Her aforementioned desire for Stone's power. Pride-She has an air of superiority when around others. Lust-Her act of swapping bodies can be considered an act of violating her victims, She chooses the most beautiful bodies to steal and has made several advances towards Hohenheim. She was going to use Rose's body and be loved by Edward Elric. Wrath-She can be unforgiving towards those who get in the way of Her plans, such as Her Homunculi legion and even Her former-lover Hohenheim. Sloth-Dante often has her subordinates do footwork for her.


Trivia

Deaths of Homunculi in 2003 anime greatly differs from that of manga versions. While manga and second anime have them disintegrating into black dust, in first anime, after death, their bodies seem to go into extreme rigor mortis before melting down into a puddle of Red Water. The exact reason why Homunculi are named after Seven Deadly Sins is never fully explained in the 2003 anime. However, they still embody sins they are called after; while Greed and Gluttony have similar roles and personalities to their manga counterparts, there are examples of others living up to their namesakes: Lust was born of Scar's brother's lover, and had affairs with other men, including Lujon. Envy despises Edward and Alphonse for being favored children of Hohenheim and for being abandoned because of them. He also hat Hohenheim for being able to find a life of peace and happiness even after abandoning him. Envy is not simply wanting other things, it is also hatred of others' good fortune. With Pride, aspect manifests through power he wields from precognition, and having political power at his beck-and-call. Pride refers to himself as god's guardian angel. Wrath, is a desire for harm. He tried to kill Izumi and take Edward's other arm and leg. Wrath can also be described as just hate or anger. This aspect of the story may also refer to the Wrath inflicted upon those who encounter Gate; 'birthplace' of child's Homunculus form. Sloths pass up numerous opportunities to kill the Elric Brothers and their friends. When she does harm someone, she often uses one arm, while the rest of her body is immobile. Her turmoil over her memories and feelings as Trisha could also be seen as embodiment of her sin, as the original definition of Sloth was sadness to the point of despair. The motif of water that she follows may also refer to the current never moving against its designated flow or path. However, name for these Homunculi could also come from being opposite of the reason they were originally created that is. Lust was born out of the genuine love that Scar's brother felt for her, which is opposed by pure lust. Sloth was also born due to the love that Elric Brothers felt for their mother and that is opposed by the cold demeanor she has for Brothers. Wrath was also born due to love that Izumi had for her unborn child, which is oppoed by anger he has for her. While it is unknown how much Hohenheim loves his son, that is opposed by pure jealousy of that love that Envy feels. It is never explained what would happen if there were to be more than seven Homunculi at a time. Since they're created from Human Transmutation, more than seven could theoretically be possible. Envy suggests that their 'master' could create more Homunculi at time if require.

Edward's relationship with his younger brother is easily the strongest and most significant of his personal connections. Ed is very protective of Al, but Al seems to care about Ed in an almost parental way. Though the Elric brothers have wildly different personalities and argue often about the best way to go about things, they are close enough that each would readily and willingly give his life for the other. As it is, Edward willingly sacrifices his right arm as material for Soul Binding Transmutation after Alphonse's whole body was taken into the Gate as part of payment for the attempted resurrection of their mother. Edward manages to call his Brother's Soul back from the void and affix it alchemically to a suit of armor, but remains wracked with guilt of having both initiated the experiment that caused the accident and damning his Brother to a cold existence inside an artificial body incapable of physical sensation. Despite his own physical hardships with his automail limbs, Edward appears to care relatively little about returning his body to its original state and is entirely focused on restoring Al as soon as possible. Ed's relationship with Winry Rockbell is likely one of his more complex personal connections. Born to a kind family that lives next door to the Elrics, Winry grew up alongside Ed and Al and means as much to them both as her sister; she and Ed are more than childhood friends, they are family. As such, however, Edward argues with Winry even more than he does with Al, their similarly stubborn personalities keeping them at odds with one another despite their powerful bond. After a terrible accident that claims Ed's arm and leg, Winry took on the role of his personal automail mechanic, building him sophisticated new limbs at the tender age of eleven. Since then, Winry has served as Ed's constant well of support, both mechanically and emotionally, though they still find themselves arguing frequently. However, this affectionate hostility appears to be masking a deeper relationship. Though Edward has not outwardly admit any romantic feelings toward Winry, he is rather overprotective of her and becomes unnaturally flustered at the mere suggestion of an amatory relationship between them. Winry, for her part, has admitted to herself that she fell in love with Edward long ago. This relationship was confirmed at the end of the series, with Ed confessing his feelings to and eventually marrying Winry. According to Fullmetal Alchemist Chronicle, they got married in 1917 and have two children. Officially, Colonel Roy Mustang is Edward's superior officer, but their relationship is far from typical professional connection. There exist between them sort of amicable animosity, as Roy takes great deal of personal pleasure in teasing Fullmetal and watching him squirm under his orders and, at the same time, Ed takes pleasure in getting around his orders and showing Mustang up whenever he manages to find an opportunity.

With such dynamic and memorable characters, it's no-brainer to say that relationships in Fullmetal Alchemist are also so dynamic and memorable. Many of these characters and their interactions have stolen our hearts, inspiring countless pieces of fanfiction and fan art. And people continue making such appreciative works to this day, even ten years after the series' conclusion. But not all of the relationships in Fullmetal Alchemist's two animes and manga have been so well receive. Not to say that fans outrightly detest many, but there's solid difference between the blazing popularity of some compared to others. Here's look at five such relationships that fans get behind, and five others they reject.


Appearance

Edward is small for his age, standing at only 149 cm at the beginning of the series, despite his attempts to appear taller,. He wears his golden-blond hair long-usually tied in a braid that hangs down to his shoulders, but sometimes forgoing braid for a simpler ponytail. He parts his bangs in middle so that they frame his face on either side as they fall and, in the center of parting, he leaves single strand of hair sticking up like an antenna. In Chapter 56, it is revealed that he do this intentionally, presumably to add to his height. Ed's eyes, too, are gold, signifying his Xerxesian ancestry. It is revealed in one of Fullmetal Alchemist art books that the reason why Edward wears all black is to hide any oil stain that he may have obtained from his automail. Early on in manga, Ed receives a thin, horizontal battle scar just above his right eye, which remains because his subsequent battles cause sensitive skin to tear open repeatedly. As of Chapter 76, however, scar appear to have healed completely. As the series progress, some of Edward's facial features begin to take on characteristics similar to his father's. At the end of the series, Edward is shown to have grown noticeably taller, being several inches taller than Winry and finally being at least equal in height to Alphonse. Near the end of the 2003 anime series, it is revealed that Earth has its own version of Edward Elric, who is identical to that of storyline save for having his hair and bangs cut short.
