"FMA Brotherhood" OVA Collection: The Fullmetal Pleasures of a Glass Half-Full

Fans of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood who are suffering withdrawal from the show may find solace in the release the “4 OVAs and Comic Theater,” lately released by FUNimation in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack. This collection four short (plus one very short) stories from the FMA franchise contains only minor pleasures, but they are Fullmetal pleasures, […]

Otakon2011: "Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos" Shines Brightly

When Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos was first announced I was a bit wary. It’s no surprise that the creators of the show would want to leverage their popular franchise to support a side-story, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it should be done. There have been far too many series and movies cheapened […]

"Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" Vol 5: Pox Dei

Like a high-calorie, high-carb Thanksgiving feast, the final volume of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the kind of thing to prove Mae West wrong: Too much of a good thing isn’t always wonderful. Mercifully, it is all over now, and such is my relief at finally being done with this story that I’m hard pressed to […]

"FMA Brotherhood" Part 4: When Wanting More Means Wanting Less

Fullmetal disclosure: I come to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood as a Fullmetal virgin. I’ve never read the manga; never seen the first series; never even really inquired into the whole thing. So I’m not watching this new series as a member of a pre-existing fan base, and I certainly can’t compare it to the other series […]

In related news, Part 1 of the series will follow on DVD and Blu-ray on 5/25/10. […]

"Fullmetal Alchemist" Season 1 Part 2: Death and Dismemberment

While not everyone agrees, I find that Fullmetal Alchemist perfectly balances comedy and drama. One minute Winry, the close friend of the Elric brothers who’s also an avid mechanic (certainly useful for restoring Ed and Al’s busted metal limbs after an intense battle), will be bouncing off the walls, and the next minute things will […]

"Fullmetal Alchemist" Season 2 Part 1: Equivalent to Quality

Fullmetal Alchemist was one of those shows which debuted while I was in college, as I was usually without a cable TV during that time. As a result, I only got to see random episodes every once in a while, and that’s certainly not any way to get into the story. Thanks to these thin […]
