Have you watched the movie? Did you like the storyline? I love the movie, great story. Definitely a must-see. You have to watch the episodes though to understand what happened. Here is a plot summary from http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/: Munich, Germany, 1923. Two years have passed since Edward Elric was dragged from his own world to ours, leaving behind his country, his friends and his younger brother, Alphonse. Stripped of his alchemical powers, he has been all this time researching rocketry together with Alphonse Heiderich, a young man who resembles his own brother, hoping to one day find a way back home. His efforts so far had proven fruitless, but after lending a hand to a troubled gipsy girl, Edward is thrown in a series of events that can wreak havoc in both worlds. Meanwhile, at his own world, Alphonse Elric ventures deeper into the mysteries of alchemy in search for a way to reunite with his older brother.

You are not alone madgirl. I was also disappointed on how they treated Winly. She was just treated like a best friend, and all along I thought there was something more than that. lol

I love FMA but I found the movie disappointing. The serie is about a world of alchemy but the movie is a lack of it. It's rare to find someone that look exactly like you but in the movie, all the double are in the same place. I think they were just lazy to design new characters.

You are right! Not much alchemy was there in the movie. And you made me go thinking that you are also right that it is rare to find look alikes in one place. heheheh... very funny to call it a coincidence, right.

We recommend that you watch the series, really nice story and funny at times. But about the movie, I am not sure everyone will appreciate it. There are already some spoilers mentioned from the first response of this discussion. Thanks for you response though.
