FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood: A Review

     So, FullMetal Alchemist is a anime which consists of 2 different series, each series has most the same characters, but has a different plot, although the same main problem. But I’m going to focus on the 2nd series, FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, because I think it’s better.
    2 brothers, Edward and Alphonse, who are both alchemists, attempt human transmutation on their dead mother to try and bring her back. Human transmutation is forbidden among alchemists, and has never been successfully done. Well, of course there attempt fails, therefor resulting in Edward losing his leg and arm, and his brother losing his whole body. Edward (of course) saves his brother by binding his soul to a suit of armor nearby.
   Their whole quest, or main problem, is to “get their body’s back” to how they where. A bunch of stuff happens and they eventually (after about 60 episodes) succeed in doing so.
What I Think
    The Homunculi ( artificially created humans, AKA the bad guys) are my favorite characters. The creators of this series did a great job on them and I haven’t seen any better bad guys In any series or movie. It was also unique that they named all the homunculi after the the 7 sins (envy, greed, lust, pride, sloth, gluttony, and wrath).
    Some of the episodes are rated TV-14 for the violence, but I would recommend it to almost anyone. Also, each episode is about 20 to 30 minutes, but action packed and totally awesome. The series is a bit slow starting (in my opinion) but gets ALOT better as it goes on (not that I’m saying that it has a bad beginning). A bunch of 100% unpredictable events happen, I didn’t even see it coming, so it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. The opening theme songs are really good (of course, it gets better as the series goes on), but it’s in Japanese so unless you know it, you don’t know what there saying.
    WARNING: if you get attached to the antagonists, prepare for the worst day of your life!
    Anyway…… the series is really good and you should watch it!
This is my second favorite theme song, the first I couldn’t find. 

The first person to guess my top 3 characters (in order) I will comment 1 time on your blog! If you don’t have a blog, then you will get my congratulations!  If you already know them please don’t guess. YOU CAN ONLY GUESS ONCE.
Hint: 1st favorite character shows up 3 times in the above theme song
           2nd favorite shows up zero times because he wasn’t introduced as a important enough character in the above theme song
           3rd favorite shows up once  in the above theme song
And, yes, there are in fact hints through out this post, you just have to look carefully (if at all).

  1. I am quite interested in watching this show now, because I watched A few episodes and i got board. But I may pick it back up so I thank you. Thank You!(:

    1. Your welcome!
      Your not the only one, I have to say that I was a bit bored until it really got good. But it also depends on which series you watch, the first was slow starting, but Brotherhood got to the point quicker.

  2. My daughter says great things about Brotherhood, too.

    I like what you’re doing with colors and fonts in your posts!

    1. Thanks! I was worried that it might be a bit hard to read. It takes a long time to color and font all the words also (or at least it feels like it).
