    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.


    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 :p

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

    Whereas the original FMA series ended with...

    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.

    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?

    Well, time for one of those establishing intros that will be only loosely, if at all, connected with the rest of the film.

    Who do you think you are Ed? Mysterio?

    Come to think of it, why is this guy wearing a Phantom of the Opera mask?

    Well, that's what you get when you tamper with human lives; the vaguely-defined gate of truth that takes part or all of your body.

    I think he was a little too proud of that bomb.

    This series takes place at the end of the first series, right? Why is Al still a hollow suit of armor?

    Speaking of Al, is that Aaron's voice or Maxey's?

    Say goodbye to whichever part of your body you end up losing.

    Oh, he's dead.

    Oh, it was a FLASHBACK. Gotcha.

    I am a man of science! As well as uranium and bombs!

    Those 20MPH car crashes are dangerous no matter the world. Except this one though.

    Careful guys, the singing might be a distraction.

    Screenwriting 101: When a character coughs continuously, it's never "just a cold."

    You flatter him, madam, but I don't think Winry would approve.

    Are they providing the title music?
