Synopsis

A fugitive alchemist with mysterious abilities leads the Elric brothers to a distant valley of slums inhabited by the Milos, a proud people struggling against bureaucratic exploitation. Ed and Al quickly find themselves in the middle of a rising rebellion, as the exiled Milos lash out against their oppressors. At the heart of the conflict is Julia, a young alchemist befriended by Alphonse. She'll stop at nothing to restore the Milos to their former glory—even if that means harnessing the awful power of the mythical Philosopher's Stone.

Sacred Star of Milos was made in mind as a final cash-in for Bones to milk off their rebooted adaptation of FMA via Brotherhood. As a stand-alone film, Milos is a decent anime-only storyline with Ed and Al having to tend to a complicated conflict occurring in a valley town with hostilities between nations, with a pair of alchemist siblings involved with those living in Milos Valley fighting to reclaim their homeland. There is enough time within the movie to flesh out details on this conflict and the two major movie exclusive characters where you can grow to care for the conflict that takes place. read more

Stand-alone animated film is rare to be so good, especially when it comes to popular franchise. Titles like Dragon Ball or Bleach have redefined it is not easy to unstick to what its start, and stylistically there has been never more variation in anime than there is now. The flipside to this surge in this case is that anime writing has generally declined, as studios use another installment and visual appeal to sell their titles. Unfortunately, this is still happening, as for the latest installment from acclaimed Fullmetal Alchemist’s franchise; The Sacred Star of Milos continuing those formulas.

FMA's final bout is Milos no Seinaru Hoshi, a movie that should have been Ed and Al's final goodbye to all of their loyal fans. However, this films suffers from the lack of what made FMA one of the greatest anime in the history of anime, the Elrick brothers.

The only reason, and I repeat, the only reason I watched this movie was to say a final farewell to Ed, Al, Mustang, and Riza. These characters were the reason why I personally loved FMA and was so intrigued by it. This movie gave me everything except for these iconic characters. I mean, sure there were read more

Dairy farming isn't something that one would normally associate with anime and manga, especially as there's nothing really entertaining about looking after or milking cows. There is, however, a rather improbable connection between these seemingly disparate industries, and nowhere is this more apparent than when dealing with popular franchises - like Full Metal Alchemist.

With a successful manga, two anime adaptations, two movies, six light novels, two series of drama CD's, around a dozen video games across several formats, and a mountain of merchandise ranging from art books to key chains, Arakawa Hiromu's tale of two brothers is undoubtedly one of the most profitable titles of read more

Recommendations

In both shows there's a lot of action and (as in one the protagonists use magic and in the other alchemy) a lot of special effects. Also, you'll enjoy these anime more if you're already a fan of the series (TOP videogame, FMA:Brotherhood series)
Both are movie sequels based on extremely popular shounen series. Both have animation that can be described as laggy compared to the show but accurately depicts the main feelings and emotions of the original series. Both focus on some unique brand new, movie only characters that go through problems where the main protagonists use their ability to help them get through them. Both are better watched after you've seen a fine chunk of the series (Naruto to about 110 and FMA Brotherhood after about episode 16)
