Fullmetal Alchemist Reviews & Ratings

"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth." -Alphonse Elric Edward and Alphonse Elric are two brothers gifted with the ability of alchemy, the science of taking one thing and changing it into another. However, alchemy works on the theory of Equivalent Exchange -- for something to be created, something else of equal value must be sacrificed. When their mother dies, Edward decides to do the unthinkable -- bringing her back to life by breaking one of Alchemy's biggest taboos and performing Human Alchemy.

Do yourself a favor and watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood instead.

One of the best animes out there. FMA has an interesting premise with a plot and humour making it engaging and entertaining while still posing compelling moral questions.

This was an absolutely amazing show! I personally like the remake (FMA; Brotherhood) a bit more, but the beginning is a little quick so it's advised that you watch this version first. I lovee it to death, and I even went as far as too binge watch it into the late hours of the night and read fanfiction about it. Got another friend to love it. This is absolutely amazing.

this dated adaption of the full metal alchemist manga is good but compared to the brotherhood adaption is pales in comparison because of the story line departure that this series makes. while the manga was not done they decided to shelve the last part and make one that have a ending for this series which was hurried and not what fans wanted. while the light tone of the series was fun to watch it not what fans really wanted to see. the next adaption brought and clear understanding on what the author and fans wanted and was superior to the first. so if you have the chance watch the brotherhood version but also watch this since it also really good from a comedy standpoint

Something always seemed a bit cheesy.
A good show but a little bit boring or ridiculous at points.
A lot of tension and interest though.
The bond between the brothers is something to behold and the intelligence of them both is quite something as well.
You will enjoy this show.
