Best Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood EpisodesFullmetal Alchemist refers to 2 anime series based on the same manga: Fullmetal Alchemist in 2003 and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood in 2009. Both series follow the alchemist brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who are searching for the philosopher's stone to restore their bodies, while uncovering an ancient conspiracy.
This is Roy Mustang when he is most badass. I might not like this Lust, but Mustang really showed just what he was capable of. Also, Riza's breakdown was brilliant.
This episode HAD to happen the show was making it very clear he was strong but was avoiding it. So when its shown it had to be epic and it was.
Roy was badass,
Riza was played brilliantly
Alphonse was developed
Lust was defeated
Plus a cliffhanger with hoenheim
They don't get any better than this
The final showdown, and it was brilliant. Every idea the characters gave are stunningly smart and unpredictable. A bit too happy of an ending, but still great.
This episode is the core of this series. It shows the relationship between the Elrics and their mother, and why they couldn't live without her. It's emotional and the best way to start the story of how it all began.
This episode has such a feeling of dread. The Homunculi are winning. Ed and Ling are trapped. There is no way out. It makes you want to see what will happen next. Envy's true form is also gloriously horrific.
The ending was so good, I actually cried just because of how good it was
This episode doesn't need to exist, but it's too funny to leave off. We never really get to see Roy Mustang being goofy, so this was a nice change. Also, the subplot with the dog was priceless.
Amazing comedy pacing, character development, great fight scene, soundtrack... Just a beautiful episode.
It's such a cool fun filler. Just watch it for yourself and see why.
Izumi never got to shine in Brotherhood, but here, her character has amazing quality. She's brash, yet kind, really cares about the Elrics, but is angry that she taught them to make the same mistake. Great episode, great character.
Wrath takes down legions of soldiers, a whole tank, and Scar himself in one of the best fights
Lots of deep discussion about the forgiving nature of humanity, ending with a satisfying death for Envy
"Nina" + "Alexander"
Must be fusion summoned and cannot be special summoned in other ways. Fusion cannot be reversed in any way. Nina and Alexander cannot return from the graveyard until the end of the game. This card's effect is also activated in the graveyard.
Shou Tucker is a great dad and loves his daughter and pet dog.
Creepiest episode ever
Ed's determination is almost frightening. He will push until he can't push any more just to make sure he can help his brother. It's a great episode to showcase how strong Ed really is.
Amazing action, I almost cried at the end... purely the best in my opinion
Ed goes through the gate of truth and sees Al's body, inspiring him with motivation
The sad death of Hughes
Hughes' death is one of the most emotional FMA moments, and it was done much better in the original. You actually had a strong connection to Hughes, so it hurt that much more when he died. We will all miss you, Maes Hughes.
Hughes death in 2003 is beyond tragic. This character is built up so well throughout the series, but this episode takes the cake with his origin story with giving Roy the support he needs.
Why does so many Sonny Strait roles have to die?
These poor people. This is a great war story, and a brilliantly written episode. I especially love the scenes where you see Mustang. You can see the moral struggle in his face, but he can't stop what he's doing because of treason. Absolutely great.
This episode showed how twisted people can be, and just how much they can hurt others. Controversial pick, but make of it what you will.
Easily my pick. This was the episode that got me hooked.
Edwards cry at the end made this the best episode.
One of the main themes of this series is how much would you sacrifice to achieve your ambitions? Ling makes the ultimate decision
A true masterpiece of television, anime or otherwise. Winry's temptation, Scar's tragic backstory, and the underlying theme of wrath, to name a few. This single episode is one of the greatest 25 minutes in all of entertainment, and should not be ignored.
Most likely the greatest episode of either version of Fullmetal Alchemist. Edward convincing Winry is such a beautiful moment.
I don't usually cry. The emotional tension was 98 percent successfully at making me tear up.
Never seen anything like it.
That fights with Ling, Lan Fan, Wrath and Gluttony was awesome.
This is my favorite episode of all because of how hilarious the entire thing was. It might not have dealt with that much important story, but I was dying of laughter throughout the entire thing. From trying to find Havoc a girlfriend to figuring out what scared Fuery and Falman, this is the episode I watch over and over again and still manage to laugh every time. My favorite part of it is that after Havoc leaves the Armstrong mansion, he is not there mentally for the entirety of what's left of the episode. Plus, the episode has Black Hayate in it, how much better can it get?
This is a filler I think, but it's awesome.
Along with the tiny miniskirts for Mustang's best moments.
