Ehh... Question... ( SPOILERS..? )
« on: March 13, 2005, 05:47:31 PM »
WARNING! Brief Full Metal Alchemist spoilers due to comparison.





Is it me, or does this manga remind you of Full Metal Alchemist ( FMA ) in any way? I can't help but feel that I'm reading something that is similar to FMA, not with alchemy and such, just the set up of the story. We meet a character, they do what they do, then they join a military ( In the flashback of FMA ) / Church, and are sent on missions in which they learn things that they had no idea about before ( Philosper stone / Noah family )

 It may be just me, but then again, other people may have got the same message. Either way, we will just have to wait and see.

vague parallels are easy to draw.

"OMG ED WEARS A BLACK SHIRT!!! ... BUT WAIT...ALLEN'S WEARING A BLACK SHIRT TOO!!!!! DGM IS THE NEXT FMA!!! ZOMG!!!!"

etc ;)

Thats not exaclty what  meant, I was just saying that they feel similar, not by character, but ehh... by feel, sounds strange I know.

i know exactly what you mean! first time i read it, I was like... great, another kid with a special arm... weeee... but I think that dgm manga art is a little better than the FMA manga art. Must be the Shueisha version of FMA.

don't listen to cg, he's just bitter that FMA came out first...

Actually, I am open to most types of manga ( save for Yaoi and Uber romance ) so I never thought that it was a FMA clone. I just got the idea that it and FMA are on a similar wave length. And yes, its drawn better ^^.

I only hope that this feeling fades away because I really like this manga, and I don't want to see it turn into a cliche. I have a good feeling it will not though.

actually, the leveling up thing is about as cliche as they can get  ;) They don't even TRY to hide it...

"I've leveled up!"
"Innocence, stage 2!"

 :D

I'm a bit confused, I think you where trying to say " they try to be as much of a cliche as possible ".

That can be a good thing because when you deconstruct things you like, they are all a cliche of something. Cliches are good. However, thats not to say something new is bad...
