Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
The new Naruto?
For a long time „Naruto“ was considered the most well known Anime series of all time - not only because of a long-standing TV-presence. Even people who are not fans of the series know the name Naruto and can effortlessly locate it in the Anime-section. Does this Anime classic now get competition? Do the brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric outstrip the blond superstar and crowd favorite Naruto Uzumaki? Can alchemy and mysticism beat Japanese martial arts? With the (re-)make of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - based on the award-winning Manga by the Japanese artist Hiromu Arakawa - the creators reached a great success. Can the Elrics outclass the beloved ninjas?
It might be hard or even impossible to compare two Anime series with that kind of profoundly different subjects. Nevertheless, we dare to give it a shot. Because we have a burning interest, if Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood has what it takes to supersede Naruto, the most successful Anime series of all time or at least to catch up with it.
