    Good

    The Elric brothers head to North, while Scar and others are traveling as well. Another good volume with a cliffhanger.

    To the North!

    If you're new to the Fullmetal Alchemist series, don't start here--instead, go find volume 1 (the beginning of everything), volume 2 (which is of slightly more importance to the plot) or even volume 15 (which works pretty well as a standalone story). This isn't the worst possible place to jump on the bandwagon, but you can do better. Previous readers of Fullmetal Alchemist should know that volume 16 is pretty light on action. A couple of auxiliary characters are fleshed out. Others make their exit. A few, like the psychopathic alchemist Kimblee, take on even greater importance. Most importantly, Edward and Alphonse Elric travel to a whole new land: Briggs, a wide expanse of snow and mountain which is, to be honest, pretty different from what they've faced so far. So it's just another episode of Fullmetal Alchemist, more of a transition than anything else. But then again, it's Fullmetal Alchemist, and since Fullmetal Alchemist is pretty darn incredible any fan of the series shouldn't miss this for the world. Oh, and another homunculus is introduced. That alone makes this worth picking up. Recommended!

    Manga plot and characters superior to anime counterpart

    In the manga Fullmetal Alchemist by Arakawa Hiromu, The story is well into it's own plotline seperate from the very-popular anime series as of volume 7 [right after Ed's fight with Greed]. Arakawa's original work FAR exceeds the anime in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, it was great...but not like this!! The story goes north, to the frozen landscape of Briggs Fortress at the border of Amestris. Ed and Al meet a new character, General Armstrong...Alex Lois's older sister and in command of the mighty Briggs fortress! Zolf J. Kimbly is re-introduced after a long absense [except the Ishbal flashback in vol. 15] since he appears way back during the Lab 5 arc and while in prison for his crimes during the Ishal war, remarked that the explosions going off across the street excited him very much. And finally a new Homunculus makes an appearance at the end! This is one of THE B E S T manga titles ever drawn!! Arakawa-sensei's knowledge of alchemy is vast. Much research was done for the storyline. This series has tons of alchemy symbols and phrases, etc. that all look fantastic! Will Edward and Alphonse ever be able to defeat the Homunculus 'Father'?! Can Alphonse really get his body back?! Enjoy!!

    Fullmetal Fanatic

    I cannot wait for Ed and Al to go up into the North. Kimbly is released from prison and OMG he is even better that he was in the Ishbal Campaign.

    Props

    This book, I have to say is amazing. The art and story line are facinating. I can't pull away when I read them and when I finish one, I cry untill the next one comes out. I give props to Hiromu Sama for her skill and knowledge in her writing.
