5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing conclusion to an amazing series! April 23, 2011
By Kay One
Ok, so to date the final volume of the Funimation release of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood part 5 has not been yet released, but the entire series finished airing in japan last year, so this is my review of the final chapter of the series.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Satisfying Conclusion August 8, 2011
I don't think I can say anything about this series that hasn't been said before, so to make a long story short, this final collection of episodes is nothing short of epic. Quite possibly the most exciting thing I've seen all year.

As a side note, I give props to the English VAs. Emotions really start running high in the final stretch of the story, and the cast gives some stellar performances here.

As far as the actual product goes, the video and sound quality of this Blu-ray is on par with previous releases. If you didn't have a problem with Parts 1 - 4, you won't have a problem here. Apparently the source material wasn't animated in full 1080p, which can be apparent in a few places, but regardless it's pretty solid-looking throughout. The same goes for the packaging: holofoil cardboard keepcase housing an eco-friendly BD case with two discs. Also comes with four more postcards (art cards?) to add to your collection. The inner artwork might spoil the ending for some viewers, so if you haven't seen it or read the manga, you might want to close your eyes when you pop the second disc out of the holder.

The episode count is only 12 this time, and there isn't much by way of extras: 1 commentary track and an outtakes reel. While I haven't listened to the commentary (they're really not my cup o' tea), I found the outtakes enjoyable. With a runtime of about 10 minutes (just an estimate there), it's more a case of the actors ad-libbing humorous lines rather than flubbing them up. There's some adult language that pops up here and there, and Mike McFarland gives the viewers a short warning about it in the introduction, but it's all in good fun.

This is a flipping-sweet conclusion to what has been an amazing series. I highly, HIGHLY recommend watching it, even to non-anime fans. Chances are, you won't be disappointed.

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.

fma:b box set?
Given the boxset has been made in Japan (http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-8h-49-en-70-3qv3.html), there's a good chance it'll be made here, after they milk enough money off the nonbox set. As to when that is, perhaps another 6 months...
