Amusing little clips that parody parts of the anime... if you miss the characters after finishing Brotherhood, this is a nice way to bring em back. The best one by far was Roy Mustang's rap! And I wish there was more Ling Yao in them. =) But sure, it'd take maybe 40 min of your time, just watch em! It's stupid sometimes, funny sometimes, but overall it's just nice to see the characters again.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood sets itself apart from the acclaimed "original" Fullmetal Alchemist series back in 2003 by staying loyal to the manga. An important part of the manga was the 4-Panel Comic section at the end of every volume. These humorous comics were comedic parodies of significant events that transpired in the current volume.

Their ability to take a serious event that elicited major emotions from the readers and turn them into something funny and laughable was something that the 16 episode, 2 minute "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - 4-Koma Theater" OVA series brought back with the DVD/BD releases of the show.

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

Well… I went over Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and it’s OVA’s and it turns out I got another thing to talk about before I go over a certain anime movie. I am referring to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Comic Theater

I have no reason to give a synopsis about this one because this whole entire thing is a self-aware parody of the series. This anime is inspired by the manga omakes that were at the end of a volume of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga. Interestingly enough, 99% of the segments are parodies of some of the events read more

Very funny, makes you feel better after the sadness "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" left some of us with (because of the deaths and all). "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - 4-Koma Theater", for those who read the manga, is basically the animated version of the omakes (the funny extras at the end). They are also very short and don't take a long time to watch.

I recommend this to anyone who watched FMA:B or have read the manga, but not to those who haven't yet because they contain a lot of spoilers and things people won't understand without the context. So if you haven't watched/read it yet, go read more
