Product Description

Edward and Alphonse Elric’s reckless disregard for alchemy’s fundamental laws ripped half of Ed’s limbs from his body and left Al’s soul clinging to a cold suit of armor. To restore what was lost, the brothers scour a war-torn land for the Philosopher’s Stone, a fabled relic which grants the ability to perform alchemy in impossible ways. The Elrics are not alone in their search; the corrupt State Military is eager to harness the artifact’s power. So too are the strange Homunculi and their shadowy creator. The mythical Stone lures exotic alchemists from distant kingdoms, scarring some deeply enough to inspire murder. As the Elrics find their course altered by these enemies and allies, their purpose remains unchanged – and their bond unbreakable.

The tone of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood darkens as it passes its halfway point. The filmmakers expose more of the sinister plans of the Homunculi's "father": an unnamed character appears who looks exactly like Hohenheim, but who commands even greater powers. Using a Philosopher's Stone, this thaumaturge turns Prince Ling Yao of Xing into a new Greed; Ling is so hungry for power, he welcomes the transformation. Ed and Al learn that the Alkahestry of Xing operates in ways Amestrian alchemy doesn't, opening the possibility of regaining their original bodies 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 the trio of fugitives out of the hands of Fuhrer Bradley and the Homunculi. When the action shifts to Ft. Briggs in the northern wilds of Amestris, the Elrics' plans are complicated by the appearance of the Homunculus Sloth and Bradley's sadistic agent Kimblee, the Crimson Alchemist. Ed discovers the staggering scale of the Homunculi's plot: the entire country of Amestris was created to form a gargantuan, murderous transmutation circle. The Elrics and their friends strive to foil the deadly game being played by Hohenheim's doppelganger. The plot of Brotherhood follows the original manga so closely that much of the dialogue is taken verbatim, and the filmmakers seem to have used some of the panels as storyboards. (These episodes encompass volumes 14 through 18.) If many aspects of the story are more unsettling, they're also more satisfying, as the artists pull no punches, whether conveying the horrors of the Ishbalan War (spelled "Ishvalan" in the subtitles) or the humor of Lt. Hawkeye needling Ed for refusing to admit he's in love with Winrey. (Rated TV PG: violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

If you have been reading the manga for Fullmetal Alchemist, then this series is for you! I was so excited that there would be a re-make of FMA to follow the manga plot line all the way way through to the end. This 3rd Box set contains episodes 27-39, which roughly covers manga volumes 14-18. The animation is superb and vibrantly colored. The wide-screen format adds to the overall feel of the show. Alot of new material is covered in Box-set #3. It is very different than the original FMA anime that was released in 2004. That one didn't follow the original storyline created by manga author Hiromu Arakawa. I personally prefer the manga storyline that is followed in FMA: Brotherhood. It's much deeper and darker, not to mention a far better antagonist called "Father" by the Homunculi. I recommend this series to anyone who like great anime or who is a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist in anyway at all! If you have been keeping up with the manga up until now (23 volumes have been released so far by VIZ, with a 24th volume due to be released in January) it's wonderful to see those panels and characters moving and talking and in vibrant, wide-screen color! It's a dream come true to see my all time favorite manga series remade and animated into such a great piece of art. This series will go down in anime history!

I was an original fan of the first anime series, but found the ending disappointing as nothing good really happened for any of the characters. Since I've found brotherhood, I have come to love this series even more to where it is now my favorite show. The first anime dealt more with physics and science while brotherhood deals with more metaphysical subjects with a grander scope and vision. This is the third season to brotherhood and it is amazing. We meet Major Armstrong's cold, fearless sister Olivier and she definitely lives up to her ice queen reputation. This season isn't action-oriented like the previous season, but it is quite interesting. This season we meet the first and most powerful of the seven homonculi Pride and the dimwitted Sloth. I liked the Sloth of the first anime moreso than this one, but I have to say that Wrath totally outclasses his former anime's equal. Wrath is one bad dude in this anime with a sleeker look and uncanny fighting abilities. The new Greed is also introduced and we meet Father, the mysterious puppeteer of the homonculi with unbelievable power. Envy, though not as ruthless as in the first anime, shows a terrible side we have never seen before. This show has restored my faith in television and has given me something to look forward to on adult swim. Buy it asap!

What can I say about Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood that hasn't been said by one guy to the next guy, Fullmetal Alchemist is a GREAT SERIES and its a MUST SEE. Unlike the "First" Fullmetal Alchemist series by Bones, this Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood follows the original working of Hiromu Arakawa, its in a sense the TRUE VERSION of her story, and its a HELL OF A GOOD ONE. In fact GOOD dose not even come close to describe the story, its (in my opinion) Speechless. It will make you laugh, smile and cry, its that FOO-KING GOOD.

Voice Acting is PERFECT in both languages (English and Japanese)

Animation/ Art Style is PERFECT, if anyone here loves Disney Movies, Square Enix has got beat, and if they decide to produce cartoon moves (not Anime Movies) Disney watch your back because they have better animators and artist.

Story/ Plot - Speechless, the story is good, I personally have READ the Manga (Japanese Comic) from being to end, watch the Fansub (Japanese to English translation that are uploaded for sharing and watching wonderful and skillful people who are just fans of Anime), watch the English Version on Cartoon Network (same as Japanese just with English Voice Actors) and many more times and it still dosent get old. I showed this to friends who dislike many Anime and they loved it, showed it to family members, they loved it.

Hiromu Arakawa has created a CLASSIC, its a must see, owe it to yourself to watch it, use Netflix, ask a friend, if you have it watch it on Cartoon Network, or even use P2P. I Guarantee that you will be speechless, and you will want to own this EPIC STORY of Edward and Alphonse Elric. PURCHASING THIS RIGHT NOW, YOU WONT REGRET IT!

Ok, I'm one of the rare few folks who started into watching FMA:Brotherhood without having seen the original series at all. To be honest, while I like some shounen series like DBZ, I do find the classic shounen anime cliches and tropes to get a little repetitive and when the original FMA series aired on US TV, I caught a few random eps and it seemed pretty good, but something about the show failed to hook me in. Fast foward to the present and I learned about the new remake series that came out in 2009 and thought 'whats the point?' and was intrigued at the premise that this series follows the manga series faithfully, which was reportedly a much better story than the original anime, which thru no fault of its own, had a very incomplete (barely the first quarter) manga story to work with. They stretched out what they had to work with into half a tv series then completed the rest with their own original storyline that concluded with an ending that runs hot or cold with fans.

Luckily, hearing about FMA:Bro late, the entire series was already aired and fansubbed but since the first 4 volumes were out commercially, I rented all the available discs released by Funimation and finished the rest of the series with what I could find elsewhere. And all I can say is:

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood probably ranks among my top 10 favorite anime series...of all time.

And that is saying something for someone who has been watching anime since the late 80s. Eventually I watched the original series afterwards which I found relatively dissapointing compared to this incredible successor.

Part 3 covers eps 27-39 and continues the story which rolls along with the momentum of a freight train, never slowing down and growing with increasing intensity.

What episodes are on these disks?
My guess is that it will include episodes 27-38, since those are the episodes that have the 3rd opening theme. Then, the next set will be 39-50/51 (Depending on if they want to split it like they did to Sets 1 & 2), and the final set being 50/51-64.
