Innocence and flesh were sacrificed when two young brothers ignored the laws of Alchemy in an attempt to resurrect their mother. The horrors they recklessly unleashed that night marked the beginning of a journey that leads from darkness to light and back.
In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what was lost – or it could be their undoing. The grisly truths found in the quest for the relic will test their souls in ways unimaginable. Murder stalks the brothers from the shadows and false prophets conspire to steal their faith. Morality is assaulted by military atrocities and scientific abominations. Amid the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse will discover the power to create is but a breath away from the power to destroy. The bond of brotherhood will be their greatest weapon in the fight for their lives.

This being not only the first bluray release of the original FMA anime but also the first time it was released in one complete package I very much wanted it. I preordered it and it came in today. The show itself was great. Usually it's people opinions on which series was better. This one or Brotherhood. I say watch this first sense this version does a lot of character focus, making you love them more. Then watch Brotherhood. And the package itself was very pretty and nice. It came with another item so the corners of mine were a bit roughed up. It comes on 6 discs and are about the same thickness of any of the brotherhood Volumes. I think it's a great edition to my bluray anime collection and I recommend it :) hope this helped!

Overall, I'm very happy to have all the episodes after so long. And also, it could be just because I haven't bought a complete series before but I found "Marathon Play" extremely useful. Watched everything in like 2 days.

If you've ever purchased a DVD or Blu-ray before, you'll be happy to know that this product is no different.
The case is a hard sturdy material yet removing the DVD's from the cases may be a problem as you have to press down firmly on the middle 'button' with your thumb and use your remaining fingers to carefully lift the DVD from the insert. That can be a problem with many DVD's however, it is also a good thing as you can rest assured that the disc will not become dislodged within the case due to the sturdy holding.
The artwork presented on the cover (as you see from the picture) is nostalgic for all Full Metal Alchemist fans. You will find the two main characters presented on the covers (slipcover/case). It is highly detailed and on the back of the case are the general descriptions and blurbs of the television show including the special features and what else you can come to expect from the DVD's themselves.
The DVD's have artwork of their own which are symbolic of the show: (a red) Alchemy transmutation circle.
When you insert the DVD/Blu-ray into your compatible player whether it's a Playstation or XBOX console, PC, etc., you will be confronted with various anime trailers before getting to home menu. On the menu, you will have a static screen with familiar music as the background (original song from FMA original soundtrack). You will be able to choose between subtitles, Japanese/English voice audio and a textless opening among other things. There's isn't much that 'stand out' about this product but whether you're new to the series or a longtime fan, I'd recommend adding this to your collection (with such a reasonable price)! While this is the series that diverged from the path the manga was headed, I do recommend checking out the second of this series: Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood which follows the manga plot intently.

Won't lie, I liked Brotherhood better, but that does not detract from this version.Read more
