    Who is your favorite girl in FMA?

    What is your favorite girl in FMA?

    One of the things I like very much about FMA is the fact that there are very cool girls in this series.
    The female characters in FMA are not just there to look pretty or be the damsels in distress; FMA girls are actually very interesting and great. So I was wondering…what is your favorite FMA girl?

    Here’s my answer:
    1)Riza
    2)Winry
    3)Olivia
    4)La Fang
    5)Mei Chan
    6)Izumi
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    Re: What is your favorite girl in FMA?

    You seemed to have named most of the prominent female characters there. I suppose my favorites would be Izumi, Olivia, Lust, Mei Chan, and Riza.

    I like Izumi, because she is strong, yet maternal and so much like Ed. It is nice having a strong female alchemist in the story who plays such an integral role to the plot.

    Olivia is another amazing, strong female character. Her character is ruthless and wise. She is like a perfect example of how I might picture a modern-day (well, contemporary is probably a better word here) Athena in this story. She is ruthless, wise, and fearless on battle. In a story rife with supernatural powers, she still manages to be an imposing combatant relying solely on swordplay. (Plus, truly skilled swordswomen are not that common in manga, especially shounen.)

    Lust was a great villain (femme fatale), and I'm still sad that she was completely taken out of the series. I wish Father could have remade her so that she could be present during the final battles.

    I like Mei Chan for her cuteness, her chibi panda, and her rentanjutsu. There is not much more to say on her. I also included Riza on the list mainly because of her interactions with Roy being touching (probably my favorite FMA pairing). Beyond that though, I find her character rather flat and sort of uninteresting.

    destiny4ever, perhaps you would like to share what about the characters you've named as your favorite females makes them your favorites?

    Sure. And you can just call me Destiny.

    1)Riza
    I like Riza because I love her interactions with Roy. Yes, I’m a Riza x Roy fan. I also like the fact that she is strong, brave, loyal, intelligent, kind and caring. I find her interesting for of all the characteristics previously mentioned and because I think she is very guarded and strong because she is protecting herself, I think Riza is in reality afraid of being hurt and is a sensitive girl. That’s why I really enjoy scenes when she lets that side of her become apparent.

    2)Winry
    I like Winry because she is strong, she is hardworking, she is smart, she is kind, and she is caring. However, I must admit that I don’t like Winry’s violent side very much.

    3)Olivia

    ITA and I love how you compared her with a modern-day Athena. Excellent comparison Tsukisama! And I also like Olvia because of how confident she is in herself, because of how loyal she is with her friends and subordinates, and because how brave she is.

    4)La Fang
    I like La Fang because of her interactions with Lin. Yes, I’m a La Fang x Lin shipper too. I also like her because of how strong and brave she is, and because of her loyalty, love and devotion to Lin and her clan.

    5)Mei Chan

    ITA. I also like Mei Chan because the effect she had on Scar and because even though she is very young, she is a capable and very brave fighter.

    6)Izumi

    ITA with you again.

    I completely agree with you. I also like Maria because when she was given the choice whether to give up and accept an unfair death or to escape and risk it all, she chose the latter one.

    Yup, i just can't resist her cuteness & cleverness (that's why she's my most favorite female character in fma)

    Second choices for me are Winry & Riza, both are strong-willed ladies with caring attitude especially for their love ones.

    FMA is an excellent example of writing excellent female leads, which sadly, the vast majority of today's authors seem unable to do. Top 5 in no particular order:

    01: Riza
    02: Olivia
    03: Lust
    04: Izumi
    05: La Fang

    its pretty much the only shounen with good female characters, maybe besides Claymore, since every character is female in that one >_>

    anyway my favorites are Olivier and Lan Fang, totally badass and good characters at the same time. I remember in the old FMA, they talked about Armstrong's other sister, but it was mostly comedic lol

    yeah but that was the first anime only. I understand why animes got filler and such but to know how much FMA1 differs from brotherhood and the manga is shocking realy.

    I thought that Armstrong's little sister originally came from a gaiden/extra chapter of the manga (volume 7)..?

    Re: Who is your favorite girl in FMA?

    My favorite female character's Lan Fan. She's a well designed character as far as looks go, but I really admire her for her bravery, and dedication to protect Ling. I guess the fact that she missing an arm, and it doesn't stop her, makes her admirable to. Riza's comes in second for me. Riza, and Lan Fan are similar in their desire to protect. I also like how Hawkeye handles a gun. My third favorite would have to be Mei Chan, although I thought of Winry to. I always thought Mei was adorable. Besides that, her use of alchemy, and martial art's makes her fun to watch. I also like her imagination when it comes to having a crush on either of the Elric brothers. Of course Ed didn't live up to her imagination, but Al's still a mystery for her.

    Olivia's definitely my favorite. She's too badass.
    Second would be Ran Fan. Third would be Izumi.

    Mei - So kawaiiii, young & intelligent (a bit clumsy and foolish at times though). Rentanjutsu. :3 Her martial arts is to die for! Extremely underrated fighter imo. *THE PANDA! FMA would not be the same without Xiao-Mei; my favourite FMA character.*


    Riza is annoying. If there is one character that ever needed to be re-designed/drawn, it would be Lust. She isn't sexy or hot or lust-like imo anyway.
