Product Description

Weary of limb and sore of heart, the Elric brothers return to the village of the childhood after four long years. And despite much needed auto-mail care, this homecoming proves bittersweet as the boys sift through the ashes of their innocence. But as Ed refocuses on the future where a startling secret waits to be uncovered, Al begins to worry about his loss of the past…

While memories fade, shocking information about the true nature of the Philosopher’s Stone is revealed. And the deeper Ed digs, the bloodier that truth becomes. How are the brothers to reconcile their desperate desire to reconstruct ruined bodies against this knowledge of the stone’s gruesome cost? Deep within the confines of a secret State laboratory, Ed’s morality will be put to the ultimate test, even as elsewhere Al is left to battle for his life and sanity both. And as rumors of military corruption and conspiracy draw others into the investigation, those closest to the Elrics look to suffer the most.

The second half of the first season of the hit fantasy-adventure Fullmetal Alchemist offers some of the most emotionally intense moments in the series. Dr. Marcoh's research into the creation of a Philosopher's Stone leads Edward and Alphonse Elric to the secret Military Laboratory #5. In its dungeons, the brothers find that Shou Tucker has continued producing chimeras, helping to draw them to the Lab. But Tucker is just a pawn for the Homunculi, Lust, Envy, and Gluttony, who want the Philosopher's Stone--which they believe Ed can create. Edward is faced with the terrible choice of losing Al or committing multiple murders when the experiment is interrupted by Scar, the avenging survivor of Ishbal. The Elric brothers' inner struggles eclipse the violent external battles: Al has begun to doubt that he ever existed in human form; Ed fears that Al hates him for delving into the forbidden knowledge that destroyed his body. After escaping from the Lab, Ed and Al meet up with the one individual they fear: their brutal but loving instructor Izumi. Realizing that the Elrics committed the crime of attempting human transmutation, Izumi sends them back to the island where they began their apprenticeship. The filmmakers intercut the Brothers' present sojourn with flashbacks of their early training, suggesting the ongoing journey to mastery of the art of alchemy. The dramatic episodes are balanced against comedic moments with Winrey, Major Armstrong and Col. Hughes. The brothers share a rare, carefree moment in Resembool, sparring and roughhousing. Despite his mechanical limbs, Ed frolics unselfconsciously in a sleeveless shirt and shorts--something no American animated character could do. Many anime series lose momentum after their first season; Fullmetal Alchemist only gets better. (Rated TV PG: violence, grotesque imagery, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

As I am lazy and my sentiments are pretty much the same as when I reviewed the first boxset, I pretty much c/p'd that review and just added necessary changes.

If you love the Fullmetal Alchemist anime, this is a great box set to get. This box set comes with DVDs 5-7 of the series as well as booklets/inserts for each DVD. Each booklet contains beautiful artwork from the show, character profiles, and comments from production staff. The main box and the boxes that hold the discs and inserts are really well done; they keep everything safe and have great artwork.

I noticed the product description didn't have a rating. I, personally, wouldn't recommend this for those under 13-14 years of age. Things get violent and there are several adult topics prevalent (war, murder, politics, racism).

Even though the series has been over for a while now and the movie has come out, I am still a very big FMA fan (as well as a Bleach fan, though it's not as good as fma).
Now, this box set covers episodes 17-28 (3 disks). Ed reunites with the Rockbells (since Scar destroyed his automail), discoveres how the Philosopher's stone is made, battles in Laboratory 5, sees his "fave teacher" Izumi, gets shipped off to Yock Island, and discovers a mysterious boy with unhuman powers.
First of all, this set is not a good starting block when you are trying to bring someone into the series. It continues from where it left off in the "first season part one" set, and the story gets even more complicated. However, it does have more action, philosophy, and adventure than the first set, showing Ed's pure heart, Al's perhaps too trusting personality, and Winry's sisterly care for them.
I love this set the best out of the first three sets, though it cannot be compared to the last set, which, if you have watched all previous sets, is tear jerking and beautiful. Hiromu Arakawa really thought this series out, as well as the directors, and it shows.
My only complaints are with the packaging and the fact that after episode 28, it strays off from the manga. There are only three disks in this set, as opposed to four the first and third sets. I really enjoy seeing sets with individual DVD cases, but this one folds out like a brochure, and has some DVDs lie halfway on top of each other to save space. A box is home to this "brochure", and also contains another box with the guidebooks in it.
I do not like the fact that the episodes after 28 stray off from the manga, but it was inevitable, since the decision to make fma a tv series was made early.

Alot of events were set up in the first Box. But this develops on them while setting up even more. This is one series that deserved the 50 episode count and each episode is fulfilling to most.

We learn more of Ed and Al's past, but new enemies and events emerge while old ones become allies to some extent.

There are alot of emotional rides in the second box. But to tell the truth, the end of the second box makes me ache from waiting for the 2nd season, or the 3rd box set to come out. this is one series I AM resolute to finish collecting.

As ~I said in my review with the first box, I had an affinity with Dragonball, because of my Chinese roots, I have watched it as a child, from the innocent young Goku series, to his adulthood. Then the slight links with the original Chinese epic fantasy classic Journey to the West or Saiyuki, or as us cantonese speakers say "Sai Yau Gey". I collected all the boxes with Dragonball, but in Cantonese.
But FMA and a few others I had to get in English and Japanese. Not to mention the quality of english subtitles tend to be better from Funimation. But Funimation also seems to try to include all the original content, or extra mini shorts.

My message from this is... BUY this, and watch Ed and Al complete their resolution to their goal and the reasons for things happening.
The secondary characters that the brothers meet and befriend are important in discovering how the brothers develop also.

Well, like with every thing you buy from animation you obviously have to wait until the commercial is over -glares at commercials with loathing- My friend introduced me to Fullmetal Alchemist and I immediately fell in love -watched it first in Japanese though by accident and then English, either way it was great- Vic Mignona does a great job (like always) with Edward Elric's voice. This part continues off with the first season part one, they take Al back to get fixed up, Armstrong (greatest posing comic relief ever with his sparkling personality and muscles XD) enjoying the view and marveling and brotherly bonding. Its a great series and I'm so glad to finally own it, I've become quite the anime/manga addict of late and like always FMA has the deepest of plots compared to a lot of things we see today on t.v. Not dissing on any particular show or movie -cough twi cough light-, but this plot is so awesome, kind of like a mix between the legend of Faust/Frankenstein/Odysseus together. Faust being the alchemy and the deal with the devil going on, basically doing something for his success (Ed's travels gain his success). Frankenstein, obviously Al, he turned his brother into a monster and in that act it was going against nature. Odysseus, they're trying to make it back home through trials that will test their manhood. And through it all even when Ed is tempted to do wrong and break the laws of science for his own benefit he never does because he knows it would mean sacrificing something or someone. -wags brows- Team Edward all the way... Edward Elric that is! XD Hope you enjoy it!
