I thought that after watching the first Full Metal Alchemist series nothing could surpass it's greatness but then after watching Brotherhood there were very different thoughts buzzing about my mind!

I liked this anime because it follows the manga more closely than the first FMA series. The animation in this series far surpassed the previous series as well. The shading and deep colors added a rich feel to the environments.

While I personally am not a fan of dubbed anime, the dubbing on this was alright. I watched most of it in Japanese, and Paku Romi Sensei's performance as Edward was one of the most passionate that read more

If you're a fan of the bleach series, this movie plays like an extended episode. For this reviewer, therein lies the problem.

While this movie is to the untrained eye mediocre, I find it to be tacked-on. At the end of this movie the story has progressed no more than where it started. In fact it may have regressed, leaving more questions than answers,questions that surely will never be brought up again in the series.
