Thats what I didn't like about the first series but everything else was great and even though I thought the ending was bad I still rewatch the series and enjoy it.

I quited watching first anime after 26 epiodes and I followed only manga and later Brotherhood. I nerver finished first series, but I saw final scenes and CoS on TV. I was quite disappointed that Ling and other manga characters weren't even mentioned there. But yet I was happy I didn't wasted my time waiting for them to show up.

assuming you're talking about the first anime ending (which is not the 'original' one. The manga one is the original one, pretty sure it matched brotherhood's) so the gate's toll was to rob ed of the world he knew, and he threw him into this other world - kinda 'our' world.
it's ******** stupid.

Simple.

Parallel worlds. In the first anime series, the writers decided to go with the idea that on the other side of the Gate is our world. A world without alchemy and magic. Our lives and our souls feed the alchemy on the other side of the Gate. Meanwhile in the manga as you know, Arakawa decided to go with the God route and reveal that the other side of the Gate is just Truth which makes much more sense.

Not exactly. Our WWII-era reality is just basically parallel to FMA's Amestris. Apparently.

This is what happens when an anime catches up too fast to a manga and they decide to write their own ending. Dante and the other homunculi were terrible, the parallel worlds idea was a bit half-assed, and Envy as a dragon was lololololol.

At first glance though, there is some logic as to why the anime writers decided to go parallel worlds but that's really just restricted to Arakawa's use of German terminology.

He was.
And personally, I loved the idea of the gate separating two vastly different worlds.
Sigh. I'm prepared to be fired upon by rabid Brotherhood fans.
