Product Description

The moment has finally arrived for fans of Edward and Alphonse Elric as the brothers encounter new characters, dangers, and mysteries in Part Two of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, “the most anticipated new anime in years.” (Otaku USA)

The path to the Philosopher’s Stone now enters unfamiliar territory, where the Elrics face exotic strangers who use alkahestry, a version of alchemy native to the distant kingdom of Xing. As insight is gained into the secret world of the Homunculi and their enigmatic creator, Lust feels the fires of Mustang’s rage in battle – and the outcome of the clash will shock you. Winry endures the trial of her life when new horrors of the Ishvalan massacre are revealed. Truly, the gate is opening on a new era of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Are you ready to see what’s on the other side?


As Brotherhood continues, the story diverges further from the first Fullmetal Alchemist animated series (2003) and follows Hiromu Arakawa's original manga (these episodes encompass volumes 8 through 13). The adventures in the earlier series involving Dr. Marcoh, Shou Tucker, and the Elrics' rigorous training under Izumi-sensei are downplayed or eliminated as director Yasuhiro Irie follows a more dramatic story line. 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. But the Elric brothers have little time for reflection as Colonel Roy Mustang's battle with the Homunculi intensifies. Mustang succeeds in killing Lust, and Hohenheim, not Edward, destroys Greed in this version. Irie introduces the characters from the country of Xing who didn't appear in the original animation: Prince Ling Yao and his attendants who join the Elrics, and the diminutive May Chang, who befriends Scar. In the take-no-prisoners season climax, Gluttony, maddened by Lust's death, swallows Edward, Ling, and Envy. The three unwilling allies find themselves lost in an endless wasteland of blood, skeletons, and ruins. Using knowledge he acquired in the ruins of Cselkcess, Ed attempts to transmute the trio through the Portal of Truth. During his journey, he discovers that Al's body still exists, and he vows to return for it. Arakawa's cartoony drawings of Ed and Al provide much-needed comic relief. The darker and more dramatic story of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood packs even more of an emotional and visual punch than the much-loved original series. (Rated TV PG: violence, grotesque imagery, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

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. Currently there are over 60 episodes that have aired in Japan and the series is still ongoing. Also, unlike the previous anime series, this series would be created in HD (540p). The first 13 episodes of "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" would feature its first 13-episodes covering the first 26-episodes from the original anime series but from that point on, the series becomes a whole new storyline which features more characters and for the most part, something new and different for the viewers, especially fans of the original series.

I highly assure anyone if you haven't checked out Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood then you are greatly missing out on this animated masterpiece!Fullmetal Alchemist is an franchise that has taken America by storm three times now firstly with the original 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist animated series..secondly with the cult followed manga of the same and now the final time with the remarkable animated Brotherhood!Brotherhood is currently airing on Adult Swim and is gaining great attention with impressive ratings all around and the animated series is on the last three episodes that will be airing in Japan for the rest of June and officially ending its run on July 4th with 64 episodes in total.This animated rare gem truly hits an incredible peak with part two..this is when the animated series strays away from the original 2003 anime to pave its own path by following the manga's brilliant plot.What your in store for with this 13 episode set is my personal favorite episodes of the series..beautiful emotions are unleashed,Jaw dropping battle sequences animated with some of the best animation ever put on film..I kid you not..you will be left in awe with every gut turning,beautifully paced moment..and with the ending episode on this set it will only leave you wanting more..don't worry this animated series only gets better as it progresses into its deeply intelligent and engrossing plot.Studio Bones has proved once again with Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood that without a doubt they are one of the greatest animation studios in the world.Hiromu Arakawa has created one of the most unique and groundbreaking stories ever written in the graphic novel world(I like to think so)..Fullmetal Alchemist is indeed one of the my favorite stories ever..so what are you waiting for..Read more ›

This set of episodes is where Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood really starts to take off and establish itself as a different series from the first anime. I would consider this the "narrative hook" of the FMA:Brotherhood series. I will admit that I was a bit turned off by the first 13 episodes of FMA:Brotherhood, I felt like the series had a very "rushed" feel to it. I understand that they were trying to speed over the ground that had already been covered by it's predeccesor, but I wished they would have slowed down with it a bit. I felt that it detracted from the emotional impact that the original series had. But once I finally got to episode 15, and the series slowed down the pacing a bit, I realized that once again, the Bones animation studio was delivering yet another masterpiece. If you were a fan of the original FMA, and were dissapointed by the first set of episodes like me, I encourage you to at least give Part 2 a view, your opinion will most likely change. I have watched the entire series of FMA brotherhood in Japanese (with english subtitles) and I can tell you that I really thought this was the stronger of the 2 series once it takes off. In the original FMA, I felt a bit dissapointed by how they ended the series, and I honestly felt that the last 10 or so episodes didn't really add up to the rest of the series, though I did enjoy the last 2 or 3 episodes. Where'as with FMA Brotherhood I feel that it's the opposite, it has a week opening with the first 13 episodes, minus a few moments, but overall the series is better as a whole from the original. There is a whole lot more action throughout FMA: Brotherhood, and the ending, which I won't give away, is a great deal more climatic than the original FMA series ending, in my opinion. By the time you finish this disc set, I can say that you will more than likely be "sold" on what FMA: Brotherhood has to offer. And it only gets better from here.

Hehe, you've got it right, Mike, though it could have been done without all the insults. Anime is dying here in in the States because people refuse to buy anime when it originally releases, and because people watch theirs online or download it for free. I don't get these people. The price is... Read More
