>>183022979>Togashi who shits out scribbles and 'fixes' (read:draws competently) things for the rerelease
This hasn't been the case since chimera/election arc though. I guess it's not too difficult to have somewhat competent art when you only release 10, maybe 20 chapters a year but, everything since where the anime leftoff has looked great even in the initial WSJ print. You should go read the most recent batch of chapters, I think it's 381 through 390. Here's just 1 image from 1 of the chapters but overall the art has been very competent lately.
It's really hard for me to compare FMA to HxH though, I like both but Chimera Ant arc alone is the same length as the entirety of FMA and you'll find very few objective flaws with CA arc, though you'll find plenty of common tropes and cliches and lackluster writing throughout FMA, BUT FMA is probably more consistently entertaining than Chimera Arc which can tend to drag ass and be boring at times, even if the highs and payoffs are great. I can say with 100% certainty that Togashi is a more competent writer/author than Arakawa though
