I cant lie when i say that these are very good.

I liked each of the 4 episodes, i think they are good enough to be on the actual show, however it may have been seen as filler so i dont really know what to make of it.

I really liked the 3rd one, where we get a little more background on Izumi's character. How she trained and how she met her husband.
Beautifully done.

I also liked the twist on the first episode, you really feel bad for the alchemist and the parents.

The second episode is cute because i like everything that happens in the house and ...

All the episodes were amazing each of them had some sort of theme and meaning to it which I liked. I got to know some more about certain charactesr such as Mustang and Curtis.

Overall very enjoyable specials that certainly added some toppings to the cake. It's definitely a recommended watch once you ...

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 ...
