This is probably something I should have watched years ago but just only got around to seeing it a few weeks back. Fullmetal Alchemist. I really should have watched this back when it came out instead of putting it off till the present. All I can say is that I absolutely loved it. I went ahead and watched Brotherhood after I finished the original as well. Almost two completely different stories it seems but both of them were excellent and both worth watching. Not sure which one I liked better.
Needless to say if you have been putting it off like me then you should definitely get around to watching it. It will not disappoint.
