When I decided to watch this OVA I really wasn't expecting anything special. I decided to watch this just because I had nothing else to do on my Monday afternoon. Thank God I had nothing to do because this OVA was very much worth the 17 minutes I spended on it.

The story of the "Blind Alchemist" picks up with Ed and All deciding to go to an alchemist who is believed to have been able to do a transmutation of some sort. This story doesn't seem too exiting and maybe a couple people can make out the ending because of the "Blind Alchemist" part read more

Fullmetal Alchemist is a mega success, specially the Brotherhood anime. Proof of that is the fact that it's ranked number 2 in this page, since who knows how many months. And, as with any successful product, OVA, specials and movies are created. Unfortunately, in most cases, these products tend to be mediocre at best, therefore, prudent consumers often face these creations with skepticism, or directly not expecting much. So, i watched Brotherhood's special with the intention of having fun, but not expecting anything great or mind blowing. I mean, four fifteen minutes long self conclusive episodes? What could you get read more
