Editorial Reviews

The Fullmetal Alchemist universe expands with new stories that reunite the original U.S. cast in four eye-opening tales available for the first time outside of Japan. In the Interactive Experience, you're on the front line against the Homunculus scourge. In the Live Action Featurette, the search for truth continues in modern Japan. The Kids Short offers proof that innocence lost can be found again. Finally, you're invited to the Chibi Wrap Party, but don't arrive late - with Gluttony on the guest list, the finger foods - and fingers - probably won't last long.

As the latest "Fullmetal Alchemist" series (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) is currently airing in Japan and is being streamed online courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment, the company has finally released the long awaited "FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: PREMIUM OVA COLLECTION" on DVD. The DVD would include the Interactive Experience plus one live and two animated shorts.

At Universal Studios Japan, back in 2005, those who took part in the "Fullmetal Alchemist Premiere Tour" ride were treated with an animation (specifically made for the ride) that puts a person on the ride to take on a role as the new member of the State Alchemists. As a rookie, you are introduced to certain key characters from the anime series but then immediately taking part in a battle between the State Alchemists versus the Homunculus. These shorts include a Preshow, Zone 1-4 and a Postshow and the duration is about 18 minutes long.

For the short collection (Duration: 16:48), the viewer is treated with the following shorts (spoiler-less summary):

* Live Action Featurette - This takes place after the television series with Alphonse Eric in his armor form in live/real Japan searching for Ed.
* Chibi Party - This is a humorous animated short in which the characters are in super deformed mode (chibi-small character mode) and celebrating after the filming of "Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa".
* Kids - We watch three children who look so similar to the Elric brothers and Winry Rockbell. But who are they?

3.0 out of 5 stars Short, Sweet, and Did I Mention Short? July 28, 2009
It's tough to argue with the widespread adoration that developed from seemingly thin air (lame pun, I know) over Full Metal Alchemist. In a sense, I've often viewed the franchise as a bit of an Asian/ anime counterpart to the hysteria over Harry Potter we've endured here in the States. And while I haven't considered myself a dedicated fan of the series per say, I have enjoyed its unique premise and solid presentation in each encounter I've had thus far. Enter Full Metal Alchemist, Premium OVA Collection from Funimation. Based on the title alone, I really expected this release to be the definitive OVA collection of the franchise but with a total runtime of just over a half hour, something didn't feel quite right about that theory. But before I get ahead of myself, let's talk a bit about the cold hard facts.

Released across a single disc packaged within a standard dvd case, Full Metal Alchemist Premium OVA Collection comes in at a total runtime of 35 minutes and wears an appropriate TV PG (13+) rating.

Language options are of typical sub & dub variety meaning the choice of original Japanese dialog audio presented in stereo or an English dub track in Dolby Digital 5.1, and the option of running English subtitles within either.

Typically at this point of my anime reviews, I would take a moment to focus on the extras contained within but to be completely honest, this entire disc is essentially a collection of extras in and of itself; so let me take the easy way out by following the press release in saying that extras include original TV commercials, textless closing song, and some Funimation trailers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Save yourself some money, don't buy this March 15, 2013
I love all the FMA series and movies; so it's with a heavy heart that I give this review. There is not a lot of content hear. The run time of the commercials is actually about the same as the features, there's that little.

The interactive adventure is anything but interactive, basically you are watching a rehashing of the series. Almost all the content is recycled footage. The little bit of new content has almost no plot to it and is very brief. As I said earlier, this is NOT interactive. Some of the adventure takes place in a first person POV but you are not controlling this "mysterious character" in anyway.

The live action adventure is basically a bunch of footage of a statue in a Japanese city (Tokyo?). You hear Al's voice in the background. My overall impression was "MEH".

The wrap party was basically all the characters talking about their roles in the movie "Conqueror of Shamballa" Sort of comical, I guess. Everyone is Chibi/SD style. It's kindah comical, I guess.

The best feature is "Kids", I won't give anything away, but it has a nice tie-in to the series at the end. Nothing profound, but it was heartwarming. But still way too short

This would have been a nice addition as a bonus disc for the movie, or some boxed set. But on its own, my recommendation is save your money. In total there is about 30 mins of footage and half of it isn't entertaining at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for Huge Fans July 31, 2012
By Breigh
Verified Purchase
This collection is basically pointless as far as content is concerned. There's only about 15 minutes of worthwhile entertainment on the whole DVD, so I wouldn't say it's worth the money.

However, if you are an avid Fullmetal Alchemist fan and this is the only thing your collection is missing, then I would get it just for the sake of having it. I bought it knowing good and well that I was only buying it just to say I have it, but I'm an impulsive buyer and a completionist so it didn't bother me very much.

I've watched it maybe twice and it will probably not leave the shelf for a while.

This is one of those dvds for the hardcore FMA fans. Otherwise, I would recommend saving your money. I gave only 4 stars because it wasnt exactly what I expected it to be. Read more

There were no full episodes! It was a handful for shorts that were only aired in Japan and the short from the movie. The ending montage is strange as well. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars The adventures of this DVD are very short.
Considering that I like and I enjoy to much Fullmetal Alchemist series, I think this particular DVD was very short and you could have in mind another compedium more complete.
