In desperation, Edward Elric sacrificed his body and soul to rescue his brother Alphonse, and is now displaced in the heart of Munich, Germany. He struggles to adapt to a world completely foreign to him in the wake of the economic crisis that followed the end of World War I. Isolated and unable to return home with his alchemy skills, Edward continues to research other methods of escaping the prison alongside colleagues who bear striking resemblances to many of the people he left behind. As dissent brews among the German citizenry, its neighbors also feel the unrest of the humiliated nation.

Meanwhile, Alphonse continues to investigate Edward's disappearance, delving into the science of alchemy in the hopes of finally reuniting with his older brother.

Conqueror of Shamballa is the ending we all wanted, but then realized maybe we would have been better off without. I think of it as a really long episode 52, because it's one of the few anime movies that serves as part of the main story of the show it's from, the finale even. And it's... alright.

Let's talk about what I liked first and then get into ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm not entirely sure what to think of this. As someone who dislikes open ends, I was hoping this movie would leave me somewhat more content with the ending of the 2003 series, but I feel as if the movie left me more or less where I started - with some questions answered, some new added and overall the same level of satisfaction.

This movie introduced some interesting ideas that, similar to how I view the 2003 series as a whole, are intriguing to see play out as an "what if"-scenario - however while the 2003 series felt somewhat like a fanfiction version of brotherhood to ...

This movie is horrible the only thing that saves it from being a 1 is the art. This movie tramples on every message established by the end of FMA. I guess the point was to give the story a more satisfying conclusion, but they couldnt even manage to do that. The ending of this movie is 10x more unsettling than the series'. Its so stupid that I have a hard time convincing myself I didnt make it up and that people actually approved of this garbage. This movie has an obsession with killing off important characters from the series and replacing them with the most ...
