Product Description

Two brothers search for a way to make their bodies whole again after an alchemy experiment goes wrong.

This search pits these young alchemists against the magic-wielding military, mystic vigilantes and a group of beings created and named for the seven deadly sins.

The brothers must fight for their lives and seek out the truth if they are to ever regain what they have lost.


Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) remains one of the best and best-loved series of the last decade, but Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is not a continuation of the characters' adventures: it's a remake that follows Hiromu Arakawa's manga more closely. The adventures began on the dreadful night when young Alphonse and Edward Elric delved into forbidden knowledge and tried to use alchemy to bring their mother back from the dead. They paid a terrible price under the principle of "equivalent exchange." Al was reduced to a disembodied soul bonded to a suit of armor; Ed lost an arm and a leg, but has been fitted with the mechanical prostheses that earn him the title Fullmetal. The brothers wander through a world that resembles late-19th-century Europe, seeking the legendary Philosopher's Stone, which they believe can restore their bodies. Although the series has been expanded to 63 episodes from the original 51, many of the subplots, including the Elric brothers' encounters with Cornello, the corrupt priest in Liore, and their training under Izumi-sensei, are abbreviated or eliminated. Instead, director Yasuhiro Irie introduces the characters from the country of Xing who didn't appear in the first series: Prince Ling Yao, who joins the Elrics, and diminutive May Chang, who befriends Scar. Ed and Al learn that the Alkahestry of Xing operates in ways Amestrian alchemy doesn't, opening the possibility of regaining their original forms 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 them out of the hands of Fuhrer Bradley and the Homunculi. The darker and more dramatic Brotherhood packs even more of an emotional and visual punch than the much-loved original series. 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. If some aspects of the story are more unsettling, they're also more satisfying: the artists pull no punches, whether conveying the horrors of the Ishbalan War or the humor of Lieutenant Hawkeye needling Ed for denying he's in love with Winrey. Almost the entire vocal cast reprises their roles, including Vic Mignogna as raspy-voiced, hot-tempered Edward. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will delight both fans of the original and new viewers with no knowledge of the Elrics' previous incarnation.

    That's right, this series isn't just one of the best Anime I've seen, it is the epitome of Anime in my mind, and one of the best animated television series I have ever experienced. Okay, so I'm a newbie who just finished the series and is on a bit of a high from the experience but I stand by my statements. Due to a series of random events I actually wound up buying the entire series just a few weeks ago and watching it for the first time. I bought the 5 separate Blu-ray releases that are currently available, it cost me substantially more than this set (about $200 total), but I'm still happy I did it, that's how much I love this series. So if you like this series and don't yet own it on DVD/Blu then you have to buy this repackaged Collection 1 set, in my opinion, there is nothing else to it.

    This set includes the first 33 episodes of the series. A nice even breaking point that leaves the remaining 34 episodes on the eventual Collection 2.
    As far as the episodes, yeah the first thirteen or so are repeated material for anyone familiar with the first series and they feel arguably compacted as such, but any arguments about the series quality disappears by episode 14 and onward where the series departs from the first anime and plays true to the original manga.

    I highly recommend this series on Blu-ray over DVD, it's not the best blu-ray picture you will ever see but this is among the most unique and beautiful anime animation I've seen and I wouldn't want to risk missing any detail of it if I didn't have to. Towards the end of the series some of the battles are evocative of the best work of Miyazaki.

    I began in 2011 watching this series on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim with much scepticism already in hand. After all I have already seen and own the original Fullmetal Alchemist series and the movie. What was Funimation doing, milking us the fans with the same series with minor twists?

    At first it seems this way. Granted the very first episode is radically different than the first episode of the first series. Still for about 8 episodes these series side by side are very much the same. THEN a divergence happened, things started to radically change. The two series were no longer mirrors of each. In time I actually had forgotten about the original series, the new rendition is that good.

    Plot wise this series is a 10 out of 10, versus the original which I now rate a 5 out of 10. The Humunculi are really delved into in this series. There are better ones than in the first series. PLUS, all the original voices returned for this series, which is another 10 for me. The original voices were PERFECT and having them return was genius.

    This Anime series is supposed to be strictly based off the manga series. The original series was based off the manga as well. But the manga was still being written and released, so the developers decided to go in their own direction with the Anime, much to it's detriment.

    The fight scenes are epic in this release. The mysteries are drawing. The lessons are so profound and true. One theme I always liked about this series, (either one), is that when you do something truly bad the consequences are with you forever, no matter what you do. Such is the case for Ed & Al and for us here in real life.

    I don't want to give any spoilers away.

    Price? 36.99? Amazing!

    My review here is based on the first half of the series on the blu-ray release from the individual releases, though it seems that the only difference was that I ended up paying about 3x the amount for the first half of the series.

    Fullmetal Alchemist was a manga before anything else. Around volume 9, a noted anime publisher contacted the manga publisher and offered to make the manga into an anime series with BONES as the principal animation studio. They originally planned on 24 episodes, though the original series was so popular that the writers extended the series. So the original anime flows along with the manga for about 10-12 episodes (with minor changes). Some of the 'extra' stories from the manga (in the back) were added in as episodes as well (such as warehouse 13, Havoc and Armstrong's younger sister, etc...). Because the anime was being pre-planned very early in the manga's run, the story diverges greatly at the point where her last manga had been published. The writer didn't have much input, and she states as much in later issues of the manga, almost as an apology for the series varying so much.

    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is a series that was created due to overwhelming fan demand. Fans wanted to see the anime follow the manga more faithfully. Bones and Aniplex decided "Hey, why not? We can make even MORE $$$"! So Brotherhood varies from the manga early on, but lines up with the manga later on. (I have read every issue of the manga as well as seen every FMA and FMA Brotherhood episode). There are some key changes, so that Aniplex didn't overlap too many story arcs from the first series.
