  • This Show Won't Cost You An Arm and Leg, but Will Cost You Your Heart, and Possibly Soul
    My favorite anime of all time and has been since I first started watching anime when I was just a wee thirteen-year-old lass. Honestly one of the best anime ever made and one of the best English dubs of all time, in my opinion. Well-written story, amazing characters, intense fight scenes, a bit of comedy here and there, and some drama as well, what more could you ask for?
    Wholeheartedly Recommend ...

  • Absolutely brilliant!
    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood stands out as one of the best-crafted series I have ever seen. Everything about the show is brilliantly balanced, leaving the viewer utterly satisfied when they finish, and completely hooked until they reach the end. The story maintains a delicate balance of somber, dark, and serious, while still maintaining a charming heart, endearing characters, and the perfect ...

    Much more accurate!!
    Much more accurate- follows the anime more closely. I really enjoyed watching! I watched the original to compare and liked Brotherhood much more- though You kinda need to watch the original or at least have read the manga in order to understand most of the lore. A definite MUST WATCH!!

  • #5. A legendary anime.
    "In order for something to be obtained, something of equal value must be lost."

    A world filled with the wonders of alchemy at users fingertips, for Elric brothers it is a dangerous and questionable one. After a failed attempt of committing human transmutation, a forbidden act of alchemy, the brothers now search for a way to return one of them back into a human body, instead of living forever as ...

  • Definition of Perfection....
    Fullmetal Alchemist is Fantasy done right! The plot was beautifully done, The characters were original, and The endless amounts of beautiful opening and ending themes were consistent. 99.95% of anime don't even come close to this masterpiece, this work of art! Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Deathnote are at the top for a reason and That is cause they have some of the best fanbases while ...

  • A Classic Anime That Will Stand The Test Of Time
    When I think of classic anime series, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is one of the first that comes to mind. Although not as long as other famous anime such as One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball, and Bleach, it holds up just as well if not better than the anime previously mentioned. It remains faithful to its source pretty much to a tee and is a series that will be just as good ten to fifteen years ...

    An Excellent Reboot to an awesome story
    I remember watching the original show back in the day and wondering what happened when it kind of just stopped. It had become a mess and things weren't really making sense. Of course the reason is the original source material wasn't finished so the showrunners were just kind of winging it.

    Then, THEN, Brotherhood happened. Everything is great, the show looks good, the story lines are varied ...

  • Same Fullmetal different choices
    It's the same FMA that we all know and love but has some different outcomes and different choices that were made to slightly alter the story but in an exceeding interesting way. Personally love FMA Brotherhood over the original but both are masterpieces and are similar. If you loved the original you will love brotherhood.

  • I would watch this a million times over if I had the time
    FMA:BH is the best EVER.
    I've heard its been called 'typical' and 'mainstream' but it is SO deserving of its status. I watched the 03 version, and this one is way better.

    If anyone on the fence about watching it, YES!! (times infinity)

  • My favorite anime so far
    No insane fillers, no long flashbacks, no common anime tropes. The storyline is altogether amazing and heartbreaking. I this my favorite anime because of how well-written this was, though, the exposition could've been better executed. Overall, this is the starter anime for all those new to anime. It has action, romance (not to the point where you get annoyed), a well-thought story, good voice ...
