A fitting and truly beautiful ending to this wonderful series!
Though I felt a bit sad that Van Hohenheim couldn't see them grow up, he was able to see Al again, and make things sort of right again with Ed.

Thank you once more (and sorry for the many messages)! :)

No problem about the multiple messages, I enjoyed reading them all! My apologies for not being on to respond to them in time...

I'm glad that you enjoyed the series! I agree that the ending was really fitting, and completely lived up to everything they had been building up towards. All the pieces fit together so well, from the fifth laboratory completing the giant transmutation circle (which, if you remember, giant transmutation circles were introduced in the very first episode with that one ice alchemist. I love when you can go back and see exactly how well things were planned out) and I loved how Al sacrificed himself to get Ed's arm back cause he knew his brother would come for him, and then how Ed sacrificed his alchemy to get Al back. They're so great. And like you said, Van Hohenheim did get some peace at the end (how great was it that he took the time and effort to get to know every person trapped inside that philosopher's stone?) So many fantastic things in the entire thing....

Being told not to watch the first anime, I actually haven't looked into that one at all. The thought hadn't crossed my mind until you suggested it actually. If you've taken the time to look into it, let me know if it's worth checking out!

No worries, I know how things can demand all of your attention sometimes. I plan on living for at least another 70 years, so a few days don't matter. ;)

You almost summed up everything that made the series great!
One of my favourite moment were those between Edward and Winry, I loved the situations they got into sometimes. When Winry can home near the end for example, and was about to undress when she found Ed eating a sandwich in her room. Of course, the awesome animation and great expressions also helped a good deal.
And when Ed finally confesses his feelings to Winry (in his own, special way), I was smilling  like an idiot in front of the screen. And Winry's reaction was quite funny and sweet as well. :aww:

I haven't looked into FMA yet, since school kept me busy and I started watching Attack on Titan, along with WataMote, and as if that wasn't enough I also picked up the "Ranger's Apprentice" series. 
However, last week I came across yet another fragment of FMA and that was pretty funny too, so I'm definitely planning on giving it a go (maybe during the holidays?) sometime, and of course I'll let you know how that ends!

Yesss Ed and Winry are totally the best too! EQUIVALENT EXCHANGE! I'LL GIVE YOU HALF IF MY LIFE IF YOU GIVE ME HALF OF YOURS!! HALF?? WHY DON'T I JUST GIVE YOU ALL OF IT?? They are so adorable <3 <3 <3

Oh, you're watching Attack on Titain? I've heard a lot about that one. One of my friends is reading the manga and says that it's really gory, so I've kinda been avoiding it...but come to think of it, I don't get bothered by gore as much as she does, so maybe I should check it out. How are you liking it?

FMA:Brotherhood is great!!!
Though something that I feared, happened: I now regret that I didn't watch it sooner. ^^;
From what I've seen so far (E01-04) it is a magnificent story, and the animation looks really nice too.
I love the concept of alchemy, instead of the 'normal' magic that's used often.

The characters so far have been interesting, I'm eager to find out what will happen with Scar, and (strangely?) Winry. I have a feeling she might be quite important to the story later on. :D

In short, thank you for the recommendation!

Hooray! I'm glad you like it! And it does keep getting better too :D

I agree, the whole concept of alchemy is a really interesting idea. And it has a very nicely defined set of rules too, with the law of equivalent exchange and all, which really helps make is seem more realistic instead of conjuring up stuff whenever they feel like it.

Haha, because of their backstories, it's almost funny that you brought up both Scar and Winry. But I can promise you that you'll be seeing plenty more of those characters :aww:
