I was wondering if I wanted to experience Fullmetal Alchemist where should I start; should I watch the live-action movie in one go or start the anime series on the long road. I'm not sure if it will be a waste to watch either one of them before the other. And the movie is easy to get too!


If you're picking between the anime or the live action, the anime is probably your best bet, specifically Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood as it is the closest adaptation of the original manga.

  • Thank you i guess you're right, and now got to find a good site to watch it. Thanks again.

  • You're welcome. BTW, since this is a Q&A site, you might want to rephrase your question to be less opinion-based and more like "Would it be better to watch the live action movie or the anime series to experience the story of the original manga?"

    @user38436 reminder that pirating animes or related is unethical and doesn't support the industry. Mar 5 '18 at 3:13
  • I believe Netflix also has Brotherhood on top of the live action movie
