Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

14 Jul

Series: “Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood”
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Episodes: 64 (complete)
Synopsis: Two brothers have endured hardships with the loss of their mother and body parts due to trying to resurrect the dead. After coming back from knowing the World’s “Truth,” they are able to perform alchemy without a transmutation circle and thus start on a journey to find the Philosopher’s Stone in order to regain their normal lives.
Opinion: 5 out of 5 stars

If you haven’t heard of “Full Metal Alchemist” (FMA), where have you been? “FMA: Brotherhood” is actually another adaption of FMA, so it’s not a continuation. I definitely recommend “FMA: Brotherhood” over FMA any day. The action is a lot more intense, the drama is thick with goodness, and the comedy is just as entertaining. I even dare say the art is a lot better than the original FMA series.  As with many fantasy series, the action in this series is over-the-top; for better or for worse is for your own discretion.  It’s a series that speaks to both males and females, although I do curiously notice that more males tend to read the manga version and more females tend to watch the anime.  There’s gore, but it’s done tastefully, and there’s indeed that lurking romance that we watchers know is there, but the characters as always refuse to acknowledge it until the last minute.  FMA: Brotherhood is the new classic; if you haven’t watched or read any adaption of FMA, then what are you waiting for? I recommend this anime to ANYONE, especially the people love action (boys, I’m looking at you) and the girls who love all things cute & bishi (girls, you know what I mean).  I do not recommend this series if  you really hate watching fighting scenes. (But I swear, it’s engaging!)

    Wow!!! Whatever you’ve said about FMA is so true!! Kudos to you!! Speaking from a spectators seat,FMA is truly amazing to many extents; be it from artwork to plot plus I shouldn’t forget to mention the subtle storyline and amazing characters!!! You already summed up whatever I thought of wrt FMA… Btw I support your stance on FMA – Brotherhood being much better than FMA…like you I also dare to say it!!! ^_^…
