    full metal alchemist review

    ok i love full metal alchemist but this first book was kinda boring so whatever you do dont stop at the first one. as the story goes on the series is amazing. its also confusing so just keep reading. this manga has every thing such as funny, action, thrills, characters, etc. this is my second favorite anime/manga (followed by gantz look into it). Don't stop reading tell you get to four and if you still dont like it this may not be the manga for you.

    Very Good

    This is a very action backed series and it has its funny moments. It is not for someone who does not like fighting because it has a good deal of it but it is very good.

    FullMetal Alchemist Begins

    FullMetal Alchemist is about the two Elric brothers who are alchemists, master of creation. Edward, the FullMetal Alchemist, and Alphonse the Invincible Alchemist, go on adventures to regain their bodies back from the philospher's stone. The story is well written and strings together humor and action. Well lovable characters, and a great concept that draws you in. The story, though great, felt rushed chapters would end so fast where alot could of been expanded on. Three stories are put into this book, where as the first story could easily spawn the whole volume maybe even the some of the second one. I recommend this book although it has its flaws this book is recommended to anyone that wants try soemthing new.

    Good but not great.

    This is my first time reading the Full Metal Alchemist and the story was pretty exiting. It was interesting and a had a very original storyline. Although this Manga didn't grasp my attention completely, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun story to read. Good job Hiromu Arakawa.

    w00t!!!!! Awesome!

    This manga is good overall, but the characters differ from the manga as Ed actually thinks about things sometimes and acts professionally. XP

    Yay FMA!!

    hey, that rymes! i'm a poet and i didn't even no it! anyway,i got this because my brother got a demo disk that hade one of the FMA demo games on it. i played it the whole day even if i kept having to start form the begining every time (b/c it was only a demo) and i kept saying 'God i love this! i going straight to B&Ns and buying the manga!' ever since i've been nagging my mom and dad to let me stay up and watch the anime. if u love the anime, read the manga! its funny, heartwarming, sad, all that stuff at the same time! and all shorties (like myself)should read it too b/c they can really relate to Ed! lol!

    Pretty Good

    Fullmetal Alchemist I will admit is VERY confusing but that doesn't mean it's bad or anything like that. The story is good. The characters are awesome and develope pretty well. If you are just looking for entertainment DON'T read this it is WAY too deep for just entertainment. The only reason why I give it four stars instead of five is because the anime is WAY better and besides that its not outstanding.

    A nice series, watch the episodes too!

    This book has my recommendations to all manga fans with good taste! ! A must read! You might get hooked! The language is okay, and the series is cool. Try to stay up LATE and watch the episodes too! If you like the manga, you'll love the episodes! I think Ed and Al are nice, and the storyline is fun. Don't forget to read naruto also!:)
