The battle with Pride rages on, and combined with Gluttony's powers, the first Hulonculus is stronger than before. How will he be defeated? It looks as if Ed will have to trust his father...but will he?

Meanwhile, in Central, Mustang and his gang struggle against the corrupt military. They kidnap the President's wife and take her hostage, but then, just as they are surrounded at gunpoint, their enemies give the order to shoot everyone but Mustang--and 'everyone' includes the President's wife! The...more

The final battle has begun! Ed and Al are now both reunited with their father and with King Bradley out of the picture the rest of the band has begun to make their move in Central. I loved these scenes in particular because they show how far these soldiers have come in this series and it was great to see familiar faces reunited once more. Perhaps more familiar faces than I was originally counting on even! It’s also nice to see that the lessons from Ishbala have not been forgotten and while yes t...more

Well the story takes a crazy turn in this volume. And the end is an uh oh kind of cliffhanger that makes you want to read the next volume. The little girl sure can fight. The scene was insane. Actually the big reveal of whatever was happening near the end was just creepy.
Lesley
Wooo-EEE, this is really gearing up for a spectacular ending. All of the various good guys are coordinated and in place, Col. Mustang's group is rampaging through his area (complete with Mustang setting everything on fire and Hawkeye sniping everything that moves), Major-General Armstrong is tearing everything up in her sector, the Ishbalans are getting into place, the various alchemists are doing whatever it is THEY'RE supposed to be getting ready, the homunculi are being confronted, and even t...more
Annerooo
Epic volume! Chapter 89 is especially my favorite! Everyone's coming together now, having fun wreaking havoc unto Central with guns and fire. This volume is the manga version of paradise. <3

Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist, vol. 22 (ViZ, 2009)

Hohenheim has managed to get Selim (and Al, who sacrificed himself for the cause) into a dome that seals out all light. With nothing else to do, the two of them sit and talk, while outside, things are coming to a climax. Selim, after all, is not without allies in the larger world. Meanwhile, Roy Mustang and his band of rebels are making their presence felt in Central City (and we still have no idea whose side Mustang is actually on, do we?)...more

Action-packed, thickening plot, three-dimensional characters, and humor drizzled on each character, Fullmetal Alchemist is a book that should definitely be read by all. Left me with tears in my eyes and a warm heart for every character that you meet along Ed and Al's long journey.
Sarah
Another thrilling volume of FMA. You can really see the pieces fall into place for the final battle. Arakawa's worldbuilding and storytelling skills continue to be top-notch. I am very excited for a lot of the sub-plots going on, especially the one concerning Mustang and his gang (and someone who shows up half-way to aid them and will no doubt excite all of his fans with his arrival).

Recommended to Federiken by: Casi todo
Me gustó sobre todo porque no vi venir el plan de Pride para que los liberaran de la cueva negra donde no tenía poderes. Quizás no esté a la altura de otros tomos pero tampoco le falta mucho mérito. Además, en este tomo me reenganché con la serie hasta el final después de haberla dejado meses y meses abandonada por cuestiones ajenas. FMA es un viaje de ida, loco...
Bas
Amazing volume of a great series. The final battle starts off with a bang and saying that ''All hell breaks loose'' would be a massive understatement. It's also great to see that Arakawa managed to tie all existing plot-threads and characters into this climactic arc; even the ones we didn't hear that much about for a while (Lan Fan for example).
Alan
Honhenheim begins to play a larger role in the story's final arc (creator Hiromu Arakawa has said this is the final arc). Pride's apparent defeat in the previous is reversed and Kmblee resurfaces. Meanwhile Ed leads his father, a Xing warrior, and chimeras against the presidents forces. Oh, we get zombies (sort of).
Miguel Vargas
Now Al is going to use the philosopher's stone.
Jeffrey
This volume was pretty much a large fight sequence as part of the final arc. Still, Hiromu Arakawa does a great job including character nuance in the combat in ways that other recent manga I've read have not.
Kate
I *love* this series. Arakawa is masterful at her suspense and maintaining a balance with the myriad plot lines without losing the reader in the process. Things are definitely heating up and I'm excited to see how this story is going to end (shouldn't be too many volumes more).

i like this one becase they are starting the war between the battle of power and the humans against the humunculis. i also like the charecters they always seem to stay true for what there doing. the ending of this one was pretty good van hohenheim final cunfrunted father

FMA Reread of 2012:

5/5.

You should see me while rereading these last volumes - grinning like an idiot or trying to keep in my shrill screams due to excitement! The forces are moving. Everyone is almost here! Be still, my heart!
Hanper Tim
I read all of volumes but just rated it :)
it had been lovely journey since I started to read it :)
i think it is really touching story T_T
in some ways it feels like Doctor Who /british tv series/
Corley
I love how I'm getting to see a lot of action, something that I've always loved about this series. Certain parts make me laugh on the inside, because I don't want to ruin the serious moments!
Ubalstecha
This series continues to race along with this installment finds Ed, Al and their father splitting up to fight the homunculi. But can they survive a fight when they aren't working together?
Ernest
Another volume produces further developments in character and story. The high quality of story and art may no longer be a surprise, but high quality is always appreciated.

Honestly, I'm getting kind of lost about who is allied with who BUT I am still really into this. Only one volume left before I have to start waiting though :(

Pride in a bubble. Envy reborn. Zombie dolls. Lots and lots of woosh bang.
