This is my favorite anime of all time. I have been watching this for a dozen time.*No kidding.* I preferred the new version of Fullmetal Alchemist, that is Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Brotherhood are based on the manga, which is more interesting.*In my own opinion.* More amazing and cool characters are introduced in Brotherhood. I especially like the battle between human and homunculus. It's totally awesome. Homunculus is a humanoid created by human. It is forbidden in the practice of alchemy, of course. However, someone created 7 of them and given them by the name of 7 sins. Just some random thought, among the homunculus, the ability of Pride and Wrath are the coolest.*Again, it's my own opinion.*
The beginning of the anime is a bit same like the previous one. Then the plot will be unfolded to a complicated, carefully designed plan. The Father of the Homunculus takes the appearance of the father of Elric brothers. Edward's father is a philosopher's stone in human form in some way. Homunculus's father intended to use the Amestris nation's people 's soul to make a highly energized philosopher's stone in order to contain the God. Of course, after Edward discovered the evil plan of the Father, he wanted to stop it and at the same time get back his limbs and Alphonse's body.
It's a happy ending. So, no pressure watching Brotherhood. Enjoy^^
