The English dubbing is quite bad, so it's rather annoying that Vic Mignogna gets star billing over the vastly superior Romi Park, but that can't wreck a show this good. At least, not when subtitles are available.
Watch it if you like shounen stories. Watch it if you like hot boys. Watch it if you like badass ladies. Watch it if you like exciting powerful characters who also get to have emotions. Watch it if you think fantasy is better with industrial machinery and military uniforms. You should probably just watch it.
The characters in this series are very multi-dimensional and complex, much as real humans are. They aren't necessarily good or bad; some who used to be evil changed and evolve throughout the story as they encounter new perspectives (which is something you don't see much in American television garbage).
All in all, I will be re-watching this many times, and if I ever have kids, they'll be watching this instead of whatever's on television.
When I got this, I got my roommate, who doesn't watch anime, hooked by the first episode! We could not stop watching because we wanted to know what happened next. Again, there may be similarities with FMA and FMA Brotherhood, but it seems the story has changed completely for the better! Really considering this one of the best animes.
Now for the product itself, it is amazing. Usually complete box sets of anime with 26 episodes usually range from $40-$50. I got this box set for around $30 with episodes 1-33. It comes with the box cover sleeve if you tend to keep those on your DVD/Blu-Ray cases. This set has 4 disks. Set is organized with each disk on each side of either of the 2 holding flaps inside the case. I watched this on 40" HD TV using my PS3 and the images were so clear crisp. Picture was amazing. Never had a problem with audio. Pretty sure I heard everything that needed to be heard. For those people that watch the opening or ending themes, I noticed that they switch between english subtitles with japanese lyrics every now and then but I don't think that matters much unless you want to try to sing the song in English or Japenese.
Overall, this is an amazing product. For any anime lover or those trying to see what it is all about, this is one that's recommended. It has a lot of action that can be a little violent at time and also can be really humorous at times. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, one of the greatest animes out there.
