Well, I just finished watching the series, and to be frank, I fell like life has somehow change. Oddly enough I had the same felling after I completed Tales of the Abyss; witch I got a similar felling to TotA when I got close to the end of FMAB.

Personally, I didn't like it very much.

I'm not sure why though. I don't remember having any serious nitpicks as far music, VA work or animation goes (my dislike of their choice of the greenish-yellow color used for some characters' hair and of more noticeable 'sameface' issue notwithstanding).

elements, that kind of stuff. I do like the first anime adaptation much, much more, however, so that's probably it.

Mostly because I prefer the way main character's development progresses. And, while I understand that the main author deliberately chose for these two versions to branch off in different directions, I still feel that making Scar

There is also much less slapstcik humor and 'let's pair everybody up', which is, IMHO, always nice.
