Product Description

The quest for the Philosopher's Stone is wrought with madness. Beings without souls mingle in the shadows with unnatural half-man, half-animal beasts. Armies are driven by secret devils. As the Elrics dig into the darkest realms of humanity, one thing is clear... the hunt for the truth behind truths has aged these boys into weary young men. Alphonse wears the weight of the world on his hollow metal shoulders; Scar s actions in Lior change the boy into something impossible to comprehend. Edward dirties his hands to gain an advantage against the Homunculi. The players flutter on wings of desperation, in doomed orbit around the Philosophers Stone.

I spoil a bit, so if you wanna be spoiled, just hang on a mo. (If not, make a cuppa tea... far away).

Okay... I always had trouble with the 2003 anime of Fullmetal Alchemist. On the one hand, it's easy to get completely absorbed by the story and characters, and that's rarely as true as it is here. This volume, although only having four episodes (which seems so cheapskate, in these days of thirteen-volume packs and so on for anime series), presents four of the most emotive ones. There isn't just the trauma drama-- there's a lot of humour and fun. I love the scene in episode 45 where Winry is lecturing Sciezska about the proper way to cook, arguing that cooking is science, whereas Sciezska counters that cooking is art, a means for self-expression. Havoc also introduces a lot of funny, clever moments, while he is forced to watch Mustang manipulate him into various schemes.

For me, though, I never believed that Ed, who was so convinced that revenge was wrong, would not only encourage others to avenge Hughes, but would also allow Roy to follow that goal and throw away everything else he had been trying to do for nearly a decade. The voice actors play their parts well, it's very believable as they say it, but in retrospect, it always felt wrong to me. Ed's about the third option-- finding a way beyond the Philosopher's Stone.

But it's also interesting to come back to this after "Brotherhood" (the 2009 anime, not the final disc of this anime series), because you can see how many things the director used that were part of the original manga, but in different ways. When Roy faces the Fuhrer and his corrupt council, one of the men there is General Grumman, who in the manga was Roy's superior in Eastern Command, and who basically worked against the Fuhrer in the manga.

The penultimate volume of Fullmetal Alchemist kicks off with episode forty five which reveals the history of the Elric brothers' father and the brothers themselves continue to hide from the military. Meanwhile Mustang confronts the Führer to see if his theories are correct. In episode forty six Mustang is sent to war to die and Tucker tricks Al into using the Philosophers Stone in an attempt to revive his daughter. Ed meanwhile discovers some uncomfortable truths about his father before confronting the Homunculi again but Lust has a change of heart. Episode forty seven sees Sloth try to recover Al but Ed intervenes and must not only deal with the Homunculus in the form of his mother but must convince Al of the need of what he must do. This episode is brilliantly written and is one of the saddest Fullmetal Alchemist has produced so far. Episode forty eight begins the setup for the final volume, moving all the pieces into place. Al is kidnapped by envy, Mustang and Armstrong start a coup against the government in the north and Ed finds where the Homunculus' master is hiding.
