Answer by mslily
Just to be clear, Brotherhood is a reboot of the series. What happens in the 2003 show does not affect Brotherhood. The OVA’s are side stories and do not affect the plot at all. They’re coming out one per disc, and there’s often two episodes per disc, so I’m making an educated guess on when to watch them within the show. You can also wait and watch them when you’re done.
This story diverges when they run out of material from the manga. Instead of going into fillers, they wrote an anime original ending, along with a follow-up movie conclusion.
FMA TV (2003)
FMA Movie: The Conqueror of Shambala
This story follows the manga pretty faithfully, but since so many viewers were fans of the first series, they didn’t go into much detail about the earlier stories in order to get to the new stuff more quickly. Anything important they skipped got an explanation or flashback when it became relevant to the story.
OVA: Blind Alchemist (after episode 2)
OVA: Simple People (after episode 4)
OVA: Tales of the Master (after episode 6)
