Scar  
So, I've been in the FMA fandom for quite a few years, but for some reason, I never really found out the fandom's opinion on Scar. The only thing I do know is, that he's not that popular in the Japanese fandom, ranking 17th in the popularity polls, but what about everyone else? Do you like/hate Scar?

What's not to like?

I don't know XD I myself love Scar, but since I don't know anything about the fandom's opinion, I thought I might ask ;)

He's not ranked in my favourites, but I do like him; I think he's a refreshing change of character in both the manga and the first anime. I like how he slowly comes around too, it's not done in the nauseatingly cheesy way it could have been.

I don't really like him, nothing in his design or character appeals to me.

I like Scar. Honestly, I do; even though he's not my favourite. His character development from a murderer to someone who's willing to help reform the country that destroyed his is just pure awesome.
Totchitoshi_hakari on November 15th, 2009 04:28 pm (UTC)
I like Scar, too. Very much in fact :) I can understand his motivation and the reasoning behind what he's doing, even though it's murder and even though he killed Winry's parents who did him no harm.
I'm actually very excited to see that he's changed. I just hope Arakawa doesn't kill him off :/

SEXY HOBO FTW. xD

Nono, but I like Scar. His backstroy and character developement are just really appealing to me. Also, his relationship with Mei is just too adorable. xD

Anime!Scar creeped me out a little and had hardly any personality. Manga!Scar is win.

I like him, personally. He's such a dynamic character with such an interesting back story. I like how he is brought into the story as a mysterious presence.
Totchitoshi_hakari on November 15th, 2009 04:49 pm (UTC)
Me too. And even though he's done some horrible things (like killing Winry's parents), I can't really hate him for it because I can totally understand his motivation and his feelings.

Well Scar isn't a favorite of mine but I do like him and admire his growth in the series. I also really like his relationship with both Yoki & Mei.
Celestial: 11 yoki huh?celestialphoenx on November 15th, 2009 04:37 pm (UTC)
I find him a very interesting character, but don't really like him that much. I like him much more now than I did at the beginning of the series, and I'm curious how his plotline will be resolved.

I have to second this, and I want to freaking know what his name is!

I am still trying to figure out what it may be that would just rock our world, but I just cant think of anything.

I don't feel too much one way or the other - I hated him at first, when he seemed evil, because people who use their hate as a reason to hurt others just make me angry. But now, I get where he's coming from, and... I'm really glad he's on their side. :)
RosaLuirosalui on November 15th, 2009 04:51 pm (UTC)
PS - And he's adorable with Mei. It reminds me of Sesshomaru with Rin, except less evil to start with. 8D

I was very ambivalent about Scar to begin with (having watched the original anime all the way through) but manga!Scar is a more interesting character, to me though his brother is far more fascinating and I want more of him, sorry.

He's not my ALL TIEM SUPAH favorite character, but I like him. As everyone else said, his character is really dynamic and changed slot throughout the story. I prefer manga-scar to anime-scar, as in the manga he's got much more of a presence. I like how he's not used as the repeat-antagonist, who just shows up and causes trouble when the plot is going slow.

Can't stand him, the whole religious extremism is so boring and uncompelling, he spends the first like 16 books just yelling and exploding faces. He's really unlikeable, he doesn't smile ever, even when he's with his family... and honestly, he hasn't grown very much in my opinion, he's still the same volatile boring hobo he always has been.

Just a thought here -- is it just me, or is Scar inhumanly ripped in FMA: Brotherhood? He's like the Incredible Hulk. It's kind of scary.
seaweed_fma: Havoc Cryseaweed_fma on November 15th, 2009 05:13 pm (UTC)
yeah, I noticed that...

Not sure abut inhumanly.. but... pretty freaking ripped..

Considering what a huge cast FMA has? 17th isn't that bad a rank imo. I'd probably put him at about 20-15 on my list of favorite characters: He's not my favorite character for certain but I think he adds a lot to the story and ehs a pretty cool guy who blows up faces and doesn't afraid of anything.
thatso_rad on November 15th, 2009 06:09 pm (UTC)
I don't like him. But that's mainly because he kills people in the 'name of God'. I hate religious extremism. But I do agree he has an interesting background and there have been fleeting instances when he has made me like him - in the manga and first anime. I don't really hate any character in the FMA universe.
harmonyopcharmonyopc on November 15th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
Seriously!
OK i gotta agree here. Now, I will say I like MangaScar and BrotherhoodScar better than the 1st anime Scar --- but I do NOT like anyone who murders in the name of God. It reminds me way too much of other forms of religious terrorism/holy wars/etc. Yuck. I can understand his feelings to be sure, I just do not agree with those actions done for that reason.
