The revamp of Fullmetal Alchemist to be more closely aligned to the manga run is really turning out quite well. The animation style is really appealing, the quality is solid and I’m enjoying the slicker and more tightly paced approach to the series as well. It feels like there’s a bit more overall foresight and planning going on here, but it may also just be misremembering the previous incarnation after several years. For new fans of the show, this is definitely worth the time to watch and getting it in an official way within days of its Japanese airing is a huge positive. For fans of the previous incarnation, there’s still that sense of déjà vu at times, but it’s very much worth experiencing again and to see where it’ll diverge from what we’re familiar with.
