    C&C - Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa [12/21]

    Like This Thread!



    A month of movies continues on Toonami with Conqueror of Shamballa, the long-awaited finale to Fullmetal Alchemist!

    Please note that this movie takes place after the conclusion of the original Fullmetal Alchemist series, not Brotherhood, so in case you haven't watched FMA in its entirety (or you just need a refresher course), you can stream the entire series on Netflix. Go get yourself caught up before watching this movie.

    Unlike the other movie talkbacks, the brief summary for this film will be in spoiler tags, since discussion of the end of FMA is pretty much unavoidable.

    Spoiler:
    Near the end of the series, Edward learns what is on the other side of the Gate of Truth--a parallel Earth in which science is mechanical rather than alchemical. Namely, this alternate Earth is our world, and it takes place between the two World Wars. After the series ended, Edward has been trapped in Germany for two years, where he has his arm and leg restored, but he's stripped of his alchemist powers. He learns about rocket science so he can return to his own home in Amestris, all the while meeting alternate versions of characters he'd met throughout the series and fighting off the occultist Thule Society who had captured his father.


    Enjoy the movie tonight at midnight. Only Toonami.

    The movie in which Hughes is a jerk.

    I wonder if Hiro Mashima saw this movie before he wrote the Edolas arc in Fairy Tail.

    I'm not sure if I'm going to catch FMA: The Conquest of M. Night Shyamalan . Brothers are visiting tonight, and I have a lot to do tomorrow.

    It's a shame too - with a name like Shamballa in it, you know it's going to be good

    So, just as a reminder; Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood ended with...

    Spoiler:
    Ed getting his arm back, Al getting his body back, evil being vanquished, happy endings for most of the characters, and Ed and Winry deservedly hooking up and having babies.

    Whereas the original FMA series ended with...

    Spoiler:
    Ed getting neither his arm nor leg back, Al getting his body back, evil being vanquished (more or less), bittersweet endings for most of the characters, and Ed and Winry not hooking up. Oh, and Ed's now stuck in our world, separated from everyone but Hohenheim.

    Hmm...yeah, I think I like Brotherhood better.

    Anywho, tonight's film is a continuation of the original FMA series, so tonight we'll watch and see if a more favorable fate awaits our heroes from that continuity.

    And, of course, everyone will continue to wonder why they didn't just air Star of Milos.

    I'm going to have to skip out on this one tonight since I have some things to finish up on prior to getting on the road for Christmas (that and I already have the movie on DVD, so I won't be missing much).

    Enjoy the movie, everyone!

    Also, make sure you watch the Chibi Party OVA after the movie is over. There's some funny stuff in it.

    Well we can talk about my ship of two of the movie only characters.

    Spoiler:
    Our world version of Al and the gypsy girl. Too bad one of them died.

    This will be weird, having already seen Brotherhood.

    Previously on Toonami Movie Month: A family fought a killer computer virus, and there were many references to be dropped.

    Tonight: Alchemists vs. Nazis

    Oh come on! I spent MONTHS making this bomb!

    That's...not Fullmetal. Common mistake.

    Why does he have a pot on his head?
