I'm not joking that in terms of anime titles that I absolutely detest, the only ones I put ahead of Fullmetal Alchemist are Elfen Lied and High School of the Dead, which should show you how much I LOATHE this anime.

Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime that perfectly embodies one that wants to have its cake and eat it, too.  This anime really wants to be emotinal and dark, but at the same time, tightly-clings to all the juvenille, obnoxious tropes that are the backbone of horseshit like Naruto.  Aside from one of the main villains looking and sounding like one of those twerps from Naruto, some of the people and creatures look like what you'd see in a Mr. Magoo cartoon, which clashes severely with the rest of the visual aesthetics in this anime.  Al Elrich's annoying voice and personality is a severe detrement to this anime as well, especially when you see him as a robot.  In addition to that, there's plenty of bad tonal shifts to go around. 

If I had to watch Super Mario Bros., Battlefield Earth and the Star Wars Holiday Special back-to-back for 168 hours, I'd take that instead of watching anything with the FMA tag on it.

Frank I thought gave this one a decent rating. I saw some episodes, but at that time I was being pulled in so many directions that I lost track of it. One day I will start streaming this again on netflix. nice QT!
