make sure you watch fullmetal alc brotherhood, and not 2003
Will do, though it's sort of confusing why.
The manga was like only half way written when the 2003 adaption went on, so they had to wing it from there. I'm probably in the minority for those that liked the 2003 more because the tone seemed darker overall, even though it got pretty wonky towards the end.
So for Brotherhood, they just completely started over from scratch.
Pretty much. Some of the first episodes are pretty similar, but brotherhood goes all the way through with following the manga.

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was interesting, too. Good dub, and not a half bad take on some cliche story elements. I don't recommend reading plot summaries. The first episode is necessary for the plot and appears as a generic mecha story, but is not representative of the rest of the series.

Saw it on Netflix, so it may still be there.

I enjoyed Gargantia.

Fun fact Respawn Entertainment has cited it as one of their inspirations for Titanfall 2's story, and it most certainly shows.

Yu-Gi-Oh! (Gallop, 2000, scattered episodes throughout childhood) In my effort to recall every single anime I've ever seen prior to starting my plunge, I somehow forgot this magical masterpiece. I'm not one to judge a show by its premise alone, not anymore—Swiss Army Man taught me that lesson, and that was my favorite film of 2016. That's a film where you take a mind-numbingly stupid premise and execute it perfectly to create something genuine, funny, beautiful, and emotionally poignant. Yu-Gi-Oh! is a show with a bad premise, too—a bunch of kids try to save the world from evil by playing a children's card game. Very dumb premise. Completely asinine. I didn't even enjoy it as a stupid kid (and I liked EVERYTHING when I was a stupid kid). That said, as an adult, I'm able to find plenty of things about it that I enjoy—especially the dub, which has a lot of hilarious localizations that are highlighted by LittleKuriboh's Abridged Series. The problem with the show is that it doesn't do anything to justify its stupid premise—it's just a dumb, dumb show, and you feel dumb watching it, because the show takes everything so fucking seriously—and the more seriously it takes itself, the less you, as a viewer, are ABLE to take it seriously. And that's where all the unintentional humor comes in. I laugh at it now, but when I was still within the show's target demographic, it bored the ever-loving shit out of me, and I'd rather have watched Pokémon, because at least that show had some levity and self-awareness. That's the last thing you want, but in retrospect, I actually consider this one of the best worst shows of all time, and it might be worth it to watch a few early episodes along with the Abridged Series, if you haven't already. 3/10

So, the worst entertainment medium of all time is now 100 years old, and according to Japan, Tiger & Bunny is the best anime ever, despite the fact that I've never even heard of it. I guess I'll have to add that.

You can thank Spider-Man for that. Japan just can't get enough of bug-themed superheroes.
