I saw the first episode of Brotherhood and hated it, but I've been considering giving the rest of it a shot. I love FMA 2003's - as in, the main series' - ending. They are not mutually exclusive to any one genre. Regardless of opinions and enjoyment, the two shows are built differently. In fact, I'm rewatch in it right now. I asked myself this again after the movie as well (Ed and Al are together again away from everyone else), still no good answer. Without getting into spoilers, FMA's final climax is primarily about the Elrics and their relationship, while Brotherhood's is about fighting the bad guy. For fans of the Fate/Stay Night universe (aka "Nasuverse"), it's very similar in its setup.

Someone in this thread mentioned that to compare Brotherhood and FMA 2003 is like to do the same thing with Avengers and Dark Knight; a person, who likes Avengers, would like Brotherhood, and vise versa. Again, I apologize if I've hurt someone. Al doesn't have memories and they aren't even together? The thing which I don't like at all is when someone says that it's obvious, guys, 2009 is for WOW the action adventure lovers, while 2003 is for the people seeking serious adult drama with the emotional depth.

Like the sin, Greed, being more about craving for human connection, and how he sides with our heroes, making this sin appear to be the most relatable of the seven deadlies. To me, 2003 is a good shounen anime with a really unique ending. Brotherhood is better, of course. It's always the first anime I show to a friend I'm introducing anime to. I love it for introducing me to such a great series and providing additional arcs with great characters. It really doesn't matter which you consider the 'correct' or 'real' storyline - I prefer the story from FMA 2003, but at the same time I accept that FMA:B is canon and 2003 isn't. I am sorry if I've hurt some FMA 2003 fans. I couldn't come up with a suitable answer. A difference between FMA 2003 and FMA:B that I always find really interesting is that in FMA:B, after seeing the Truth, clapping to use alchemy just came natural to Ed and was something he knew from the beginning. The characters didn't develop as much (ed is a dick for the entire series run/Roy never feels like he cares for riza until the end), the Homunculi have interesting origins but no particular reason for their actions (why blindly follow your leader), and that ending was pretty abrupt (I'm counting the CoS end as the true ending for the og series). I get it, FMA:B is a battle shounen, but I was still expecting conclusion to be different, not just "Hey, let's just PUNCH the bad guy in the FACE! FMA 2003 also had the best OST.

However, I myself love Brotherhood more, and I strongly disagree with the OP that FMA is suitable for the drama lovers, while Brotherhood is addressed to the adventure lovers. I think it doesn't hurt to watch 2 versions of the same manga. It's depressing. EDIT: words. Both are excellent for what they are. I get it, FMA:B is a battle shounen, but I was still expecting conclusion to be different, not just "Hey, let's just PUNCH the bad guy in the FACE!". Sometimes it ends up good, sometimes it doesn't. It's not quite as fantastic as brotherhood was, and having seen brotherhood first it might be harder for you to watch than normal, but it's still worthwhile.

IMO, one is primarily an action adventure and the other primarily a drama, but that isn't to say that one does not have traits of the other. the characters in 2003 are far more interesting especially the homunculus. I do prefer Brotherhood overall in the end, but one thing that is heavy for me is the ending. The biggest problem I have is how they gimped the philosopher's stone (but I get that it emphasizes how powerful it is to bring back just one life).

I would definitely agree with op that if you were going to watch both you should watch the original before Brotherhood, because at one point they split off from having anything to do with one another. They have the same core of central characters, the same premise and early plot points, but different stories, art, etc. Its hard to watch the original version if you watched brotherhood first, it is mostly the same plot as the first 10ish episodes of brotherhood but way slower and in depth. If you watch the 2003 version first then that gets the heavy storyline out of the way and you can enjoy the fact that Brotherhood isn't quite so weighted down. Is it really that good?
