This fifth volume of the `Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood' anime contains the final twelve episodes of this greatly entertaining series. The episodes on this two disc set see Father's plans come to a head as he tries to activate the nationwide alchemic circle. Meanwhile the forces of Coronal Mustang and the northern Briggs troops continue their assault against Central Command but it is a race against time until reinforcements arrive.
This final volume of the series is easily the best of the series and is an almost perfect way to conclude the series. The animation is great, the voice acting as good as always and the storyline comes to head with some very nice moments with great action and some nicely emotional moments. The final episode of the series is especially good and it is nice to see the series end so well.
While I don't usually watch extras, I must say that this volume has a good one. Along with the usual commentaries and opening and closing themes there is also a short set of outtakes that, while somewhat rude in places, is hilariously funny.
Overall this series has been very entertaining and, while there are some parts of the series that I dislike, I would definitely count it as one of the best anime series I have watched. This final volume is well worth a full five stars.
