    Product Description

    Two brothers search for a way to make their bodies whole again after an alchemy experiment goes wrong.

    This search pits these young alchemists against the magic-wielding military, mystic vigilantes and a group of beings created and named for the seven deadly sins.

    The brothers must fight for their lives and seek out the truth if they are to ever regain what they have lost.

    Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) remains one of the best and best-loved series of the last decade, but Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is not a continuation of the characters' adventures: it's a remake that follows Hiromu Arakawa's manga more closely. The adventures began on the dreadful night when young Alphonse and Edward Elric delved into forbidden knowledge and tried to use alchemy to bring their mother back from the dead. They paid a terrible price under the principle of "equivalent exchange." Al was reduced to a disembodied soul bonded to a suit of armor; Ed lost an arm and a leg, but has been fitted with the mechanical prostheses that earn him the title Fullmetal. The brothers wander through a world that resembles late-19th-century Europe, seeking the legendary Philosopher's Stone, which they believe can restore their bodies. Although the series has been expanded to 63 episodes from the original 51, many of the subplots, including the Elric brothers' encounters with Cornello, the corrupt priest in Liore, and their training under Izumi-sensei, are abbreviated or eliminated. Instead, director Yasuhiro Irie introduces the characters from the country of Xing who didn't appear in the first series: Prince Ling Yao, who joins the Elrics, and diminutive May Chang, who befriends Scar. Ed and Al learn that the Alkahestry of Xing operates in ways Amestrian alchemy doesn't, opening the possibility of regaining their original forms without using the evil Stone. But they need Scar, Dr. Marcoh, and May Chang to decipher the research Scar's brother pursued in Ishbal, which means keeping them out of the hands of Fuhrer Bradley and the Homunculi. The darker and more dramatic Brotherhood packs even more of an emotional and visual punch than the much-loved original series. In the wrenching episode 20, Ed discovers that neither he nor Izumi succeeded in transmuting the souls of the dead: his mother and Izumi's baby were always beyond their reach. If some aspects of the story are more unsettling, they're also more satisfying: the artists pull no punches, whether conveying the horrors of the Ishbalan War or the humor of Lieutenant Hawkeye needling Ed for denying he's in love with Winrey. Almost the entire vocal cast reprises their roles, including Vic Mignogna as raspy-voiced, hot-tempered Edward. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will delight both fans of the original and new viewers with no knowledge of the Elrics' previous incarnation.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Animated Series I Have Ever Seen... February 4, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray
    That's right, this series isn't just one of the best Anime I've seen, it is the epitome of Anime in my mind, and one of the best animated television series I have ever experienced. Okay, so I'm a newbie who just finished the series and is on a bit of a high from the experience but I stand by my statements. Due to a series of random events I actually wound up buying the entire series just a few weeks ago and watching it for the first time. I bought the 5 separate Blu-ray releases that are currently available, it cost me substantially more than this set (about $200 total), but I'm still happy I did it, that's how much I love this series. So if you like this series and don't yet own it on DVD/Blu then you have to buy this repackaged Collection 1 set, in my opinion, there is nothing else to it.

    This set includes the first 33 episodes of the series. A nice even breaking point that leaves the remaining 34 episodes on the eventual Collection 2.
    As far as the episodes, yeah the first thirteen or so are repeated material for anyone familiar with the first series and they feel arguably compacted as such, but any arguments about the series quality disappears by episode 14 and onward where the series departs from the first anime and plays true to the original manga.

    I highly recommend this series on Blu-ray over DVD, it's not the best blu-ray picture you will ever see but this is among the most unique and beautiful anime animation I've seen and I wouldn't want to risk missing any detail of it if I didn't have to. Towards the end of the series some of the battles are evocative of the best work of Miyazaki.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fullmetal Alchemist Done Right. April 4, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray
    I began in 2011 watching this series on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim with much scepticism already in hand. After all I have already seen and own the original Fullmetal Alchemist series and the movie. What was Funimation doing, milking us the fans with the same series with minor twists?

    At first it seems this way. Granted the very first episode is radically different than the first episode of the first series. Still for about 8 episodes these series side by side are very much the same. THEN a divergence happened, things started to radically change. The two series were no longer mirrors of each. In time I actually had forgotten about the original series, the new rendition is that good.

    Plot wise this series is a 10 out of 10, versus the original which I now rate a 5 out of 10. The Humunculi are really delved into in this series. There are better ones than in the first series. PLUS, all the original voices returned for this series, which is another 10 for me. The original voices were PERFECT and having them return was genius.

    This Anime series is supposed to be strictly based off the manga series. The original series was based off the manga as well. But the manga was still being written and released, so the developers decided to go in their own direction with the Anime, much to it's detriment.

    The fight scenes are epic in this release. The mysteries are drawing. The lessons are so profound and true. One theme I always liked about this series, (either one), is that when you do something truly bad the consequences are with you forever, no matter what you do. Such is the case for Ed & Al and for us here in real life.

    I don't want to give any spoilers away.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to Regret Watching October 21, 2012
    Format:DVD
    This was the longest series I've ever watched. I don't have the patience for long anime, but I found the patience for this one.

    As far as the technical stuff goes- I absolutely loved the voice team. You will recognize most to all of them from Soul Eater and Ouran High School Host Club, other productions from Funimation. The art style was great- if you've seen the accompanying movie, "The Sacred Star of Milos", you must know that the art style is nothing like that. I'm watching it now and it makes my eyes hurt that they changed the visuals so, so much. The soundtrack is fabulous. I'm currently working on perfecting "Rain"- the fifth opening theme- on my saxophone. The music is beautiful throughout, including the background tracks.

    Plotwise, this is the best you will find. It is an emotionally wrenching story, which offers a "cast of snowflakes"-- dozens of characters and you care about all of them. Here's a brief rundown(spoilers are avoided):

    The Protagonist: Ed. After losing his mother at age five, he and his younger brother tried to bring her back to life after six years of research into the science of alchemy- but it went horribly wrong. Ed lost a leg, and his brother's body disappeared completely. Ed was able to call back his brother's soul from the other side of the "portal" where they were trying to pull their mother from, but he had to pay an arm to be able to bind said soul to an empty suit of armor for him to live in.

    The Object of the Plot: Al. Al is the younger brother of Ed, whose soul is fused to a suit of armor he can walk around and speak with. The series revolves around returning his and Ed's bodies to their former state.

    The original alchemist or brotherhood?
    I preferred brotherhood to the original series because it followed the manga, took more time to explain alchemy and had some back story but that made the series 13 episodes longer than the origional but I enjoyed watching both series. I think fullmetal alchemist was 50 episodes and brotherhood... Read More
