You thought you knew the whole story. You thought all the tales were told. The Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection offers proof: You were wrong.

Amazon.com

The four brief OVA adventures in this collection suggest short stories that explore the pasts of the main characters from the popular Fullmetal Alchemist continuity. In "The Blind Alchemist," Edward and Alphonse Elric pursue Judau, an alchemist serving a wealthy family, following a rumor that he successfully performed human transmutation. The melancholy tone of this episode recalls the Elrics' visit to Liore and their grisly encounter with Shou Tucker, the "Sewing Life" alchemist. Episode three recounts the student days of the Elrics' teacher, Izumi-sensei. She was every bit as formidable as a teenager as she is as an adult: a bear carcass served as an introduction to her soft-spoken future husband. In "Yet Another Man's Battlefield," cadets Roy Mustang and Maes Hughes forge the deep friendship that will become a key element in the later narrative. The "Comic Theater" mini-episodes offer the animated equivalent of the four-panel cartoons Hiromu Arakawa put at the end of her manga collections. The slapstick antics involving simply drawn versions of the familiar characters suggest a blooper reel from a live-action film. (Rated TV 14: violence, grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon

(1. The Blind Alchemist, 2. Simple People, 3. Chronicle of the Teacher, 4. Yet Another Man's Battlefield)

I am really going to miss having new episodes.

I primarily buy bluray now but still enjoy having dvd or digital copies for use with my computer player.
Sarah Kindley
Very short OVA's, but we'll worth it for the die-hard fans.

First off, I am a huge fan of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. It is the first anime in about 10 years or so that i've watched more than once. The characters' emotions and developement felt very real to me, and I love the mix of humor and seriousness that makes you both laugh and cry throughout the story. I also happen to love the english voice actors, even though I realize there are huge sub vs dub camps out there. I personally tend to try to watch the English versions if the voice actors do it justice, and I think they largely succeed in this particular anime. But enough about that.

This dvd/bluray combo, especially at the roughly 13 dollars price, was worth it for me. I know some are upset about having to buy both, but i've paid 13 dollars for just a dvd before, so a 2-for-1 deal for what I got was good for me. I primarily buy bluray now but still enjoy having dvd or digital copies for use with my computer player.

I enjoyed all 4 of the OVA's, having never seen them before. Each one averaged about 15 minutes in length (the total for all 4 was about an hour). The first one, The Blind Alchemist, was a relatively serious OVA that deals with the Elric brothers investigating a report of a possible successful human transmutation. It had the usual funny Al/Ed faces and antics in a few spots, but overall it had a rather grave tone, similar to Shou Tucker episodes.

The second OVA, Simple People, focused on the Elrics visiting Winry for repairs. It explains Winry's fondness for earrings. Riza Hawkeye has cameo appearances as well, and a rather poignant scene at the end. I really enjoyed this one, it had me laughing out loud at parts, and was a lighthearted break after the first OVA.

For the inexpensive price, this DVD/Blu-Ray is well worth it. It contain 4 OVA's (all entertaining in their own special way) and 16 funny mini episodes presented in a comic-strip format parodying the series as a whole. This is a standard release, no commentary, only extras are the 16 mini episodes. The ovas all together run about 1 full hour. Buy this if you're a fan its a great deal.

I DID NOT BUY THE BOX SET. However, since I saw there was so few reviews, I decided to write one, since I have seen the OVAs that are on the set.

OVA 1: The Blind Alchemist
Ed and Al hear of a blind alchemist named Judau who had supposedly performed successful human transmutation. Is it possible that human transmutation can be used to bring back the dead?

OVA 2: Simple People
A short story about Ed and his many trips to Risembool for arm repairs.

OVA 3: The Chronicle of Teacher
A story about Ed and Al's teacher, Izumi Curtis, and her training near Briggs.

OVA 4: Yet Another Man's Battlefield
A look into back at an 18 year-old Roy Mustang and his time at bootcamp.

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the Comic Theater. However, I really enjoyed all four of the OVAs. However, they are side stories, and are not essential to understanding the basic plot of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Hope I helped!

In Japan, "Fullmetal Alchemist" (Hagane no Renkinjutushi) has been a popular long running anime and manga series created by mangaka Hiromu Arakawa. The original manga series was serialized in Square Enix's "Shonen Gangan" since 2001, while the 51-episode TV series created by BONES was shown on television in 2004 and was followed by a film to conclude the series.

The popularity of "Fullmetal Alchemist" has led to many novels, OVA's, drama CD's, soundtracks and video games and a lot of these releases have been distributed in various countries and its popularity is a testament of how people have come to love the series which has won many awards in Japan including being voted for the #1 most popular anime series of all time.

Despite it's popularity, the series could have gone on longer but because the anime series was created when the manga was only several years old, the anime series only lasted 51-episodes and there were differences between what the director featured on the anime series and what Arakawa had in the manga.

So, in 2009, a new series titled "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Furumetaru Arukemisuto) was created by BONES and this time around, the series would follow the manga much more closely. A total of 64 episodes were made, including a film and also 4 OVA's. With the series and film being released by FUNimation Entertainment in the United States on Blu-ray and DVD, now the four OVA's will be available on Blu-ray and DVD in May 2012.

To make sure that there is a difference between this series aside from the storyline differences compared to the original, the staff is different this time around as well as the character designs.

Well worth getting - not just for the four side stories, but especially for the Fullmetal 4-Panel Comic (4-Koma) Theater shorts! To hear Travis Willingham do a goofy, rapping Colonel Mustang is definitely an awesome highlight.

The copy I received from Amazon was in the DVD sized case. A bit disappointing that it doesn't match up with the rest of the set.

Will there be a non-blueray release?
Because it's a combo, it's unlikely we'll see just a DVD release, unless Funi releases the whole FMA:B series in a single box set and includes the OVAs.
