I am not very fond of Brotherhood. I like the original anime series better. After all, it did come first (anime wise) and I have good memories of watching it with friends and singing all the theme songs. For some reason, when the Xingese characters were introduced, I developed a hatred for them. I was also turned off by the beginning, as it felt so rushed that I stopped watching. I may continue watching brotherhood but I have little hope that it will grow on me.
