Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Review
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Follows the manga as closely as possible
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood's writing and production was overseen by the writer of the manga, in order to ensure the accuracy of the content.
Pro Incredibly deep and entertaining story
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is a titan when it comes to storytelling. The depth of the story is astounding; you begin by following the Elric brothers, 2 alchemists who are on a quest to find the Philosopher's Stone in order to use it to restore their bodies to their natural states. However, as they unravel the mysteries associated with the stone, they uncover something that threatens the security of their country, Amestris, and the rest of the world with it.
While the feel of the anime is dark and ominous, there's plenty of humor to break it up, great fight scenes to watch, and a myriad of interesting characters to follow.
Overall, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is a superbly entertaining show.
Pro Funny and serious
Can pass through funny moments, and can become very dark.
Pro Well-developed characters
Every single character background is very curated and deep.
At the end you'll know not only the story of the two protagonists, but also everything around.
Pro No filler
Because this new edition of the show follows the manga so closely, and was produced towards the end of the manga's release, there isn't any filler added.
