Reviewing with TheDarkOne_221b: Fullmetal Alchemist

Hello guys. I'm Dark One here reviewing my favorite anime show of all time. It's so legendary and amazing! It has many things other anime like DBZ, Naruto, Attack On Titan, and SAO lack.

(Note: I'm reviewing the original FMA because I haven't finished Brotherhood yet.)


The plot is about 2 brothers (Ed and Al) who try to bring their mother back to life using human transmutation. However, it failed and resulted in Ed losing his leg and Al losing his entire body. However, ina last effort, Ed sacrificed his arm to get his brother's soul and bond it to a suit of armor. After the aftermath, they went to their childhood friend Winry and her grandmother to build Ed's automail arm. After that, they're recruited in the military for performing human transmutation at a very young age. Hearing about the philosopher's stone, Ed and Al decided to take the journey to find the stone and get their bodies back.

This plot is very interesting and at times hooks you up at many times. The show does however have filler episode such as Fullmetal vs Flame and
The Flame Alchemist, The Bachelor Lietenuent, and the Mystery and others.

Rating: 10/10

Characters: Easily my favorite part of the show. Almost all of the character have so much to them than just being there for the sake of it.
Words can't describe Ed other than him being everything an anime character should be; selfless, brave, strong (not in strength, but character and will), and caring. Roy is such an amazing character with amazing development, Hughes, words can't describe Hughes other than hilarious but at the same time downright serious, and Riza and Al are downright amazing! Even the villains are amazing, even Tucker was great because he forced us to question if Alchemy was good or not and affected Ed and Al throughout the whole series. Lust is one of the best because she has so much characterization in her that stands out and Greed is amazing!

Rating: 10/10

Humor: the humor is amazing! From Ed's short rants, Armstrong's muscles, and Hughes talking about his daughter, even the episode "The Flame Alchemist, the Bachelor Lietenuent, and the Mystery" is amazing!
Though it can get quite repetitive and annoying at times.

Rating: 9/10 (Great humor, but can get quote over the top).

Things I forgot to mention that are amazing
-the art
-the music

However, despite my love for the show, if there's one thing I ABSOLUTELY despise, it's the ending. I understand Hiromu Arakawa wanted a different ending, but dos it HAVE to separate Ed and Al? Can't they just think of another ending? God that was so horrible that it makes me wanna punch myself in the face!

Conclusions: Fullmetal Alchemist is an amazing anime that shows amazing chracater development, humor, concepts, and plot. I reccomend this to any anime fan out there needing an anime to watch because this will leave you dying of laughter or in tears.

Final rating: 10/10 (I recommend this to anyone)

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my review and I'll see y'all later!

Bye guys! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
