03-series

“Is this 03 or Brotherhood?”, the definitive guide

I know a lot of people have trouble telling the two FMA anime apart, and I’ve noticed an increase in confusion lately, so I thought I’d make a post to help clear it up! I’ll go over some telltale differences between the two styles, in order of ease. For images, Brotherhood will be on the left, and 03 on the right.

1. Al’s armor

If Al is present in an image, he’s the quickest way to tell the difference between the two series. 03 Al is fairly greenish in hue, and his face looks similar to the early stages of the manga, with a very rectangular chin. Brotherhood Al is much greyer, a little shinier, perhaps a bit bulkier, and his face is more angular with a curvier chin, giving him something of a permanent >:( face. His toes curve up in Brotherhood, but not in 03. Also, since the fight with Buccaneer never happened in 03, if Al’s ponytail is short, it’s definitely Brotherhood!

2. Characters who appear in one series but not the other

This is something of a no-brainer, but it’s worth mentioning. Look at what characters are present in the image. Anyone who appears after the Dublith arc in the manga/Brotherhood would not be in 03. Conversely, characters such as Dante, Lujon, Archer, the Tringham brothers, and Leo don’t appear in Brotherhood.

3. The women

While this doesn’t necessarily apply to every screencap, women in 03 tend to have somewhat defined lips, while they don’t usually in Brotherhood (with the exception of Olivier, who wouldn’t be in 03 anyway). This is especially true of promotional art, as opposed to screencaps.

4. The chain

(Running in the shadooooows~)

On every Amestrian military uniform, there’s a rope chain on the right shoulder, which also attaches to the front of the breast. In 03, the bit connecting the chain to the front of the uniform is braided, while in Brotherhood, that portion is a single cord.

5. Colors + general vague feeling

Colors can sometimes be used to tell the difference, if the lighting is standard. Colors in Brotherhood are fairly muted, but not too dark, and generally stick to shades of red, blue, yellow, black, white, and brown. They might almost be described as pastel, at least compared to 03. While colors in 03 are usually more saturated than Brotherhood, they’re also a lot darker, and not nearly as coordinated in hue. Also, 03 characters in general tend to have something of a youthful look to them, compared to Brotherhood, and noses are usually longer and pointier than in Brotherhood.

6. Specific character differences

Certain characters have notably different looks between series. If these characters appear in a screencap, you can look to them for clues. Some examples:

  • Ed: His hair is darker and more orange in 03. He also wears the same outfit throughout most of it, while his alternate outfits from Brotherhood don’t appear. His face shape also pretty much stays the same in 03, while in Brotherhood he matures physically towards the end of the series.
  • Al: His human form in 03 has noticeably darker, more brown hair than Ed, whereas in Brotherhood there’s really very little difference between the two. Shamballa Al is also very distinct: Long hair in a ponytail, basically dresses like Ed. Post-Promised Day Brotherhood Al looks older than Shamballa Al, and has short hair.
  • Winry: Her “work outfit” in 03 had a pink bandana and light purple pants. In Brotherhood, the bandana is green, and her pants are tan.
  • Rose: Had dark skin and pink bangs in 03, while in Brotherhood, her skin is light and her bangs are more of an auburn color. She also appeared much more in 03.
  • Scar: 03 Scar looked way younger, and had no cheekbones. Brotherhood Scar has cheekbones and could crush 03 Scar’s teen vogue looking ass with his bare hands.
  • Bradley: Brotherhood Bradley has wrinkles on his forehead, and a very defined nose. 03 Bradley has a more empty face, and also usually a darker skin tone. Brotherhood Bradley also looks a lot more pissed off compared to 03 Bradley, most of the time.
  • Greed: In 03, Greed’s shield form is dark blue with red eyes. In Brotherhood, it’s grey with black eyes. His undershirt is also dark blue in 03, while it’s dark red in Brotherhood. Also, obviously, Greeling does not appear in 03.
  • Kimblee: Brotherhood Kimblee is a suave ass motherfucker with the best fashion sense in the entire series. 03 Kimblee has this absolutely terrible circa 1980s Rachel Summers-esque braid/buzz cut combo that makes me want to cry every time I look at it.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about Hogwarts AUs a lot, but something that’s been bugging me lately is whenever I see the core four sorted (or the boys at least, Cassie is mysteriously absent a lot), Bart usually ends up in Hufflepuff.

Which is ridiculous, really, as everyone knows that every Allen that’s gone to Hogwarts for the past 600 years has been in Ravenclaw.

With Bart in particular, I feel like the only thing people remember, that showcased how smart he really was, was that time in the terrible 03 Teen Titans series where he read a library before becoming Kid Flash. While that was certainly a thing that happened, there were also two separate times that Bart taught someone another language (he taught Jenni to speak English, and Max to speak Interlac), not to mention the library research bit from one of the earliest Impulse issues.

In it, Bart is supposed to be using his library time to find out three facts about France, but instead of going through the books available to him, he decides to just go to France to find out in person. Because that’s the thing about Ravenclaws. A Ravenclaw is a person who goes beyond the book for their knowledge. Sure Bart remembers everything he reads, but it’s more satisfying for him to learn by doing. Remember when he and Jenni learned to play instruments on the fly through trial and error? That’s some Ravenclaw shit. 

That’s literally the door riddle, now that I think of it. The point of the common room door riddle is to think outside the box and learn something. You’re only allowed to try once and if you get it wrong, you have to wait on the next person to try. So they learn from your mistakes and do better. Because the pursuit of knowledge doesn’t start or end in a book, you have to get out there and ask questions. Do things!

Bart is so, so smart, but not in a way that people are used to. His way of thinking, of doing things, has so many different steps compared to what other folks do, but he’ll usually get to the right answer, anyway.

Gee, it’s like he was an allegory for people with ADHD or something. Cough.

I kinda gave up on my Blood+ rewatch only bc I got sucked into Seven Deadly Sins and then Your lie in April and it’s a pain that I can’t watch Blood on Netflix or something.

But anyway, I started FMA: Brotherhood bc I watched it subbed a few years ago and I wanted to rewatch the dubbed version bc I love Travis Willingham and Vic. 😭💖 I’m only on episode nine or something but I’m already anxious for all the Royai action I’m going to get!!! AND IN ENGLISH THIS TIME!!!

ya’ll wanna hear a secret

when i watched the 2003 series (at least i think it’s the 2003 i watched that and brotherhood close to the same time tbh) and there’s taht scene with Hoho and Trisha the covers all naked (or implied naked) i was in high school and i got so embarrassed by it i told my priest about it

          “ molly, do you mind? ”

     blue eyes are trained on the experiment in front of him but in his outstretched hand his phone. his other hand is busy with a pipette, dropping a chemical into the petri dish on the counter. sherlock’s mind is busy with a thousand thoughts, and though he could probably send the text himself, it’s much easier to have molly do it. he shakes the phone gently, a sense of urgency in his voice when he speaks again.

          “ i would appreciate it if you would do me this favor. take the phone. ”

The Suga Series #03

-Wait a second- you asked for what seemed like the tenth time.  

You were with Yoongi at the mall, you two had been walking through every men store looking for a new sweater Yoongi wanted and also taking advantage of this to have a little fun together and relax; but you decided that this was the perfect time to dress all fancy and put on those new high heels you were dying to wear for the first time. Everything to look good for your already gorgeous boyfriend. But now those heels that seemed all so pretty were killing you slowly.

-Jagiya, It’s like the eleventh time you told me to stop, what’s wrong? – He was dressed so casual in ripped jeans, a plain black t-shirt and his air jordan’s but he looked so good. 

You smiled at him despise the pain. –Nothing, I’m just a little tired-

He squinted his eyes examining you from head to toe. –Let’s go sit over there- he pointed a near by bench and took your hand again, walking a little bit slower to get there. You thanked god, sitting down never had felt so good. –Wait here- he told you, not giving you a chance to ask him where he was going, so you just sat there, waiting for him to come back.

Yoongi took his good twenty minutes, in which you were awfully bored with the sole company of your phone, so you instantly brighten up when you saw him coming. –What do you have there? Did you find your sweater? - You asked noticing the bag in his hand, feeling a bit bad for not being able to go and buy it with him. All because of those heels.

Yoongi pulled out a box, and extended it to you. –These are for you-

You opened the box and saw a pair of stunning black Air Jordans, much like his but his were in white. –Babe… this is… why?-

-You shouldn’t wear shoes that damage your body- he kneeled in front of you and you blushed hard. He was actually going to change your shoes. –Here- he said while getting it all together, he even bought socks and band aids so your feet wouldn’t get more hurt.

When he was done he sat back next to you without saying anything. You couldn’t stop smiling. Your Yoongi loved you too much. –Thank you babe- you said stretching your body a little so you could give him a quick peck.  –You are the best-

Yoongi smirked, taking your hand and getting up the bench. –I know-
