    hmm.. I think the last episode is an hour long.. because I heard the last episode is airing a half an hour early than it should.. suggesting that it's an hour long! So that would count as 52 eps.

    Love FMA

    I'm the same with most the others. I LOVE FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST. Seriously, it's the best...I wonder why it's not as well known? Anyway, yeah it's awesome, but of course Naruto is the bomb...Yeah I'm kinda undecided about a favorite.

    Does anyone know why they ended the anime so quickly? With such a large fan base, you'd think they'd be sucking it for all it's got.

    .. 51 episodes and a movie isn't enough? It's not like a show like Naruto where if one arc ends, it can keep going. Naruto doesn't have such a specific goal, Hagaren does.

    Follow the manga, it's still going strong, and is supposed to for another 5-6 years.

    If the sucked FMA for all it had, it probably wouldn't continue to be as good as it is now.

    With Naruto there is a goal, but it's a really broad one which would naturally take many years to achieve (become Hokage, kill brother). However FMA's goal would take a lesser amount of time to fulfill

    And FMA is already really well known, it was one of Square Enix's top 3 profits of the year. It's just that FMA's not running and Shonen Jump (the most popular magazine) and (correct me if i'm wrong) not airing on TV Tokyo. And it's shorter.

    Full Metal Alchemist is one of the greatest animes in my opinion. It's got almost everything I want in an anime. Action, comedy, drama, etc. The characters all have great personalities, too. The author is a genius, I think. He draws himself as a cow in the manga. =0

    Actually, Future Gohan, the artist/writer, Hiromu Arakawa, is female. Her real name is Hiromu Aniki.

    Yeah, it was speculated, since she never showed herself to the public, and it was confirmed a month or so again. I think it was like a JK Rowling situation, she figured if it was made by a woman men might be less intrested in it.

    For the manga you can go to as affirmed by Karin who stated that his chakra quantity was comparable to that of a tailed beast for downloads... for more recent chapters go to Link removed but you can't download those.

    For anime... you can get later eps 40-on at as affirmed by Karin who stated that his chakra quantity was comparable to that of a tailed beast and suggests here (this fansub is better)
    but there doesn't seem to be any more earlier episodes available

    True how the plot goes in a completely different course than the manga after the middle of the 2nd season or so but if the anime were to end in 52 episodes, they would need to change it. I like the plot changes. I think it keeps the viewers on its toes.

    I only got a chance to Wath the first EP and read a few of the first chapters from the manga. I enjoyed them, maybe I should look into it some more.
