Wait, is Brotherhood a retelling of the same story? I thought it was a sequel.
.... and I suddenly remembered this is the internet, so scratch that, I'll go look it up.
hah, yeah. Brotherhood is a retelling that is closer to the original manga. the 2003 first anime series is similar but it goes in a different direction and is supposedly vastly different from the manga. this occurs about half way through the first series. i had that same impression and considered it a sequel until i found out later on. the purist in me just wants to watch both series.
also this website is pretty good. a wikia dedicated to FMA and all of its differing versions. http://fma.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page
