Now that I've softened you all up with the Canada offering, something a bit more in tune with my Ultimate Fallout post... (not nearly as hard-hitting, but still pretty rough)

If you think that was bad... try the anime.

On a pure writing level, putting aside what is expected of a shonen manga, ever since I read Full Metal Alchemist (after seeing the original anime) I've thought that Arakawa is the best mangaka writing/drawing today and this is just one example of why. Wonderful characters, tight plotting, excellent pacing. Purely as a work of fiction FMA is brilliant.

Knew what was coming the moment I read the title. This damn moment still delivers a punch to the gut.

Furher Bradley must be really upset about this, after all, why else would he be shaking?

The Anime version was heartbreaking. Like Ultimate Fallout and Peter Parker, the scene itself is very sad and well done, but it hit so much more when you experienced how awesome Hughes's charachter was.

In the two weeks since I've become a father, I've found myself identifying with Hughes more and more (HAVE YOU SEEN THESE PICTURES OF MY FAMILY, LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT THEY ARE LOOOOOOOOOK). As such, this scene takes on a whole new level of gut-punch than it already had for me before.

FMA truly is one of the best mangas out there. I really...can't say more. -sniffle-

FMA spoiled me for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows back in 2007. JK Rowling could have learned a thing or two from the final Ed vs. Envy anime fight.

"You were bad luck for a lot of us, weren't you? Must be hard, having to fight a friend YOU ALREADY KILLED ONCE!"

You know. FMA is one of those "Can see the technical quality, but not feel the love" things of mine. It just never felt very special to me.

It's kind of like that for me too. Albeit, it does actually feel fairly special to me, but I feel bad or awkward when I just don't get excited about it the way some of my other friends do. (And I don't know what it says about my taste that I get more excited about One Piece than FMA, but I think as of late, OP has really hit a lot of themes with varying emotional levels. And done so well.)

Funny, because One Piece is another of those shows I can see the merits off, but don't actually like.

I guess what blows my mind is different kind of stuff (Utena, Princess Tutu, RahXephon, Infinite Ryvius, Planetes...)

Heh, I was actually like that at first. But I think it being so quirky and comical (especially when the other SJ main two killed their humor somewhat) stuck with me. and how plain imaginative Oda gets.

But yeah, I do tend to like stuff like that too. Princess Tutu hasn't pulled me in, but I do like it. On the otherhand, Utena is one of my most favorite series of all time. (And it makes me appreciate BSSM more too.)

I said it once and I'll repeat it until they can miraculously release something better, Fullmetal Alchemist is the greatest manga/anime ever! It's the total package. Epic story, action, has a beginning, middle, and end. Has great characters, gets you invested and the heroes worked towards their happy ending, it wasn't handed to them. This scene (and another one involving the doctor who reunited with his wife and son) always had me full of tears.

Timely for me

The full run of FMA:Brotherhood is currently cycling through on Adult Swim (I've seen the entire original series, but am only up to Adult Swim-current for Brotherhood), and the last couple of episodes have involved Mustang finally catching up with Hughes' killer. It's an excellent bookend 'Roy's loss of control' piece to this one.
