Product Description

In the shadows beneath Central, the Elrics encounter Father, the creator of the Homunculi. His face is familiar - as is the new face of Greed - but his alchemy is unlike anything the brothers have ever seen. As Father's dark plot takes shape, Ed and Al brave the frigid north to meet the top officer of the fortress Briggs: General Olivier Armstrong. With icy nerve and burning intensity, she commands the hardest soldiers in the land. When you witness her leading the warriors of Briggs in battle against the unstoppable, rampaging Sloth, you'll know - the stakes are higher than ever in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Collection 2.

Amazon.com

The tone of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood darkens as it continues. In flashback sequences, viewers learn the origins of both Hohenheim and his doppelgänger, the "father" of the Homunculi. Hohenheim was once the slave of an alchemist in Cselkcess, who created the first Homunculus. When the King of Cselkcess's attempt to achieve immortality backfired, Hohenheim became a human Philosopher's Stone and the Homunculus created a body for itself that was a duplicate of his. Decades later, Father plans to activate a transmutation circle that stretches across the entire country of Amestris, killing untold thousands of unsuspecting humans to create a gigantic Philosopher's Stone--and activate the Mannequin Army, a corps of zombies animated by the Stone's power. Director Yasuhiro Irie and his artists pull out all the stops in the appropriately dramatic and moving conclusion. The Elric brothers and their allies--Von Hohenheim, Roy Mustang, Scar, Izumi, the Armstrongs, May Chang, and Ling Yao--strive to thwart the machinations of Father and his remaining minions: Pride, Wrath, Sloth, Envy, and the zombie army. The climactic battles are as wrenching as they are spectacular, with flashy CG effects that rival Hideaki Anno's new Evangelion films. But the emotional impact overshadows the visuals, as each of the main characters must rise to face a dire challenge. Edward and Alphonse discover how much they're willing to sacrifice for each other. Mustang destroys Envy, avenging Colonel Hughes, but Ed and Lieutenant Hawkeye make him realize that his anger threatens to destroy him. The initial Fullmetal Alchemist series, which was completed before manga artist Hiromu Arakawa had envisioned her story's outcome, ended with the setup for the feature The Conqueror of Shambala (2005). Brotherhood, which follows the original manga so closely that much of the dialogue is taken verbatim, reaches a much more satisfying and definitive conclusion. Saying good-bye to two of the most beloved characters in anime history might be the price viewers pay for an appropriate ending to their story--and an example of "equivalent exchange." But the adventures of Edward and Alphonse Elric continue, beginning with the feature Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos (2011).

Note: This is a review for the entire Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood anime, not for this particular volume of the set.

For the past several years, I had considered the original Fullmetal Alchemist to be my favorite anime of all time. It featured everything that I loved most about the genre: driven young protagonists, a fantastical and vibrant fictional world, a coherent set of combat mechanics, dynamic fight sequences, gorgeous animation, a well-thought-out and complete plot, and darker, more mature themes. Thus, when I heard that the series was being remade to more closely reflect Hiromu Arakawa's original manga series (which I have not read), I was excited to see the result. Could the full story written by the creator of the Fullmetal Alchemist universe manage to outdo the already-phenomenal anime that was more loosely based on her work?

The two answers to this question, I am happy to declare, are yes and hell yes. Although it gets off to a slightly uneven start, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood manages to surpass the quality of its predecessor by a healthy margin. It is one of the best television series I have seen, and it fulfills the promise of modern anime in a way that no other title has.

For those who are not familiar with either series, a brief plot synopsis is in order. Brotherhood follows the journey of two teenaged boys, Edward and Alphonse Elric, as they travel in search of the legendary philosopher's stone. Their world is a bit like Europe in the early 1900s, but with a significant twist: humans can tap into the power of alchemy, a mysterious science that enables its practitioners to reshape and reconfigure matter.

Calling Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood the greatest anime of all time does it a disservice; it is simply the finest television show ever created. The second half of the series, which composes this collection, is a perfect combination of a fascinating plot, fully fleshed-out characters, plot twists, and suspense. FMA: Brotherhood is equaled by no other.

By now if you like anime and even live under a rock you've heard of this series and probably have an opinion of your own about it. In short for those just now returning from the moon, the series itself is fantastic. I truly don't believe there's a character you won't enjoy, and even friends of mine who don't like anime have gotten hooked on this series.

Even the overall pacing is pretty balanced, especially for Japanese storytelling. It's not until close to the end that I want them to skip showing everyone's opinion on a matter, but that's because there are so many characters who come together in the last battle and my personal rabid desire for them to get to the ass whopping.

What is really worth knowing is that the Blu-ray IS worth owning over the DVD version. I've streamed it, owned the first three DVD sets before I purchased a Blu-ray player, and now I own this. I'm not a big tech fanatic, but there really is no comparison. Side by side the visuals and audio are noticeably better.

Many anime series are not worth getting on Blu-ray because of the original level of film quality, but this series is truly fantastic on the newer media. If you already own it on DVD and are waffling over upgrading, I say do it when the price is right for you. You won't regret it.

I am Japanese, and i never watch anime in english translation because they always get everything wrong. The translations are bad, they speak in english tones that not even americans would speak in. The voices are way off, no emotion, doesn't match the true characteristics of the show or characters. However, Full Metal Alchemist, they actually did a good job in the english version. I was able to watch the entire Full Metal Alchemist and Brotherhood series in English. And respectfully, they kept the theme songs in japanese to keep the touch, unlike dragon bal.

Definetly should watch the original series before watching brotherhood, to understand the characters better and enjoy the contrast.

i hate when funimation does this lol, release a more complete collection later on, but its to be expected. i was really not liking how in the first wave release of brotherhood on bluray that they would fit like 9 episodes on the first disc and only 4 episodes on the second disc, i mean, why? what was the point in doing that? just evenly split them onto the two discs as possible. anyway. this part 2 collection includes episodes 31-62 i believe? i forget the episode count but its basically the second entire half of brotherhood complete. of course all extras that were on the individual releases are also included. except for the post cards that were given to you in each volume of the first wave of blurays, i believe it was like 4 postcards per volume, this second set doesnt have those post cards. but thats just a minor issue that doesnt affect the amazing series that FMA B is.

First off, let me say this rating is NOT for the show. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is among best anime series ever hands down and everyone should give it a try.

That being said, the Blu-Ray release itself is not well made in my opinion. The discs and packaging are okay, nothing more than the basic essentials of a release, but where Funimation really hits you hard is the subtitles. They claim to have both Japanese and English audio (which is true) but then they also claim to have English subtitles. The problem is, they only allow you to view the English subtitles if you watch the Japanese audio version. That's right, if you have difficulty hearing spoken audio or don't have the fancy 5.1 Surround setup to get crystal clear audio in all channels, you CAN'T turn on the subtitles and still watch in English! This is a major problem that is introduced during the manufacturing process for seemingly no reason at all - they *can* lock the subtitles to an audio track, so they simply do it without caring about whether or not the customer actually wants that. It's a huge issue when trying to watch the show in English, particularly when the audio itself is mixed just like any other movie - ie quiet scenes with audio are way too soft, so you turn the volume up, but the next scene has gunshots and explosions so loud your neighbors call the police on you because they think something's actually going on. I have generally perfect hearing, but even I can't make out dialogue when I have the volume down enough to keep the sound effects from shaking the house - and my hard of hearing friends/family members? Forget it, they can't even watch the show with me unless we switch to the Japanese audio!

Yeah, this collection will have the second half of the series. I'm hoping the price will go down to around $37 like the first collection
