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?

This is a review of all 4 OVAS of FMA: Brotherhood

1. The Blind Alchemist (Score: 9 out of 10)

The Blind Alchemist is about Ed and Al hearing a rumor that a state alchemist named Judas successfully made a human transmutation to save her daughter from dying and what they see is rather disturbing.

2. Simple People (Score: 8 out of 10)

This OVA is about Winry who read more

Critic’s Log - October 3, 2015. Supplemental Review of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD

I remembered that the original Fullmetal Alchemist had some OVA’s. One of them was some comedic in-joke on the people that worked on the series as if the characters were actors. Another was a little sequence that feels like the epilogue to the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime. Then there was a Live-action OVA, an Interactive OVA, and then a Recap OVA. To be honest, these OVA’s don’t really add much to the original Fullmetal Alchemist and I found most of them pointless. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood was fortunate to have OVA’s that actually add to read more

Four espisodes are four different stories, that the reason why it is tought to rate all of them by one mark. The second story was quite boring to me, so was the third. However 1st and, especcialy, fouth were kind of a masterpiece. After watching all of them I was so confused that I was unable to give it any rate.
The specials are great mean to meet our favurite characters one more time, also to learn new things about their history. Few scences where already shown in the core series, for me it is an advantage, as it allows to place a situation in read more
