Hmm, on that comparison I'd say things get a little darker still later on.
Hm, well, I just finished it, and the ending was really epic. Everything came together really well.
It definitely gets darker, even more so than Avatar, I'd say, but the two are still quite similar in many ways. The same anachronistic, steampunky, 1900ey feel applies to them both. (Or at least to FAB and Legends of Korra.)
I should have realized that it wouldn't be that childish the whole way through...

Man I love/loved Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. It always felt kind of...real to me, you know. I mean not the alchemy or philosopher stone bits, but I felt like it was kind of like a story about life. Does that make sense? I tend to space out at FMA Brotherhood. To this date it is the only series I watched completely twice, as I have an obsessive complusion not to watch "younger" parts of a story, a.k.a the start. But my love of it overpowers the oc. Plus this was the series that pushed me towards shipping. (Greeling Fan, Almei, Edwin, Royai) Which reminds me, I need to rewatch the episodes again.
I think I understand what you're saying. Wow, even though I really like it, I wouldn't watch the whole thing
twice. It's about 60 episodes! I also tend not to watch things twice.
Shipping always makes me laugh, although you picked ones that make allot of sense (and some that happen in story). It's the wierd ones that I find amusing though, like Pridimblee. (I've seriously heard of that combo and it makes me want to throw up. Those of you who watched it know the obvious reason why.) It's worse than Galen/Beatrice (Galice) in Heroica.

Something I always worried about in Fullmetal Alchemist is that we know they can transmute elements. The only reason they don't transform objects into gold is because it would destroy the economy. And since their world is at an alternate 1914-1915, I can't help but wonder what would happen once they discover uranium, if they could synthesis it as well. It would create cheap powerful fuel for technology, but Alchemists could potentially create nuclear bombs from scratch. A single Alchemist could wipe out a city.
Speaking of which; (spoilers for those who haven't seen the end.)
I'm working my way through Cowboy Bebop now, and it reminds me allot of Blade-Runner and Firefly, with a good bit of Jazz.
I'm looking for a more story driven Anime to watch too. Any suggestions?
