GREAT again! I love the art and the characters so much! Some of the little ongoing jokes are so adorable and funny- Edward raging when he gets called short and Alphonse with his list of things he wants to do when he is no longer a suit of armour. God I love this series!
Celine
This series is amazing and I wish I owned the other twenty volumes already. The fifth volume of Fullmetal Alchemist focusses on the miracle (and tragedy) of human life - it is easily created yet also easily lost. This volume also sees Winry grow into a more all-round character and introduces some more kick-ass ladies. I cannot wait to see more of Ed and Al's journey.

This manga deals in a very good way with the idea of how sacred a human life is, whether through witnessing a woman giving birth, or dealing with the whole "bringing people back from the dead" thing.

I loved seeing more of winry in this volume, and I loved the extensive details of the two brothers' background and past, and what they went through.

Is she broken?
No, honey, she's dead.
But Mrs. Izumi, you can fix anything, right?
Menny, life is not an object, and I'm not a god. Chiko had a life, just like you do. But Chiko's life has stopped and will never return. I can't give Chiko back her life... but I can make her a grave.


I like this series, but I haven't been nearly as into it as my friends are. But I REALLY liked this one. It introduced some fantastic new characters, Winry delivered a baby like a boss, and I am so in love with Izumi an

This might be favorite volume yet (I think I started with too many stars! There's nowhere to go!) It's been a few books since the boys really used their alchemy interesting ways, but here there are a lot of cool uses of powers. And there is my new hero, Winry Rockbell, deciding that if she can be an awesome cybernetics mechanic, she can for damn sure deliver a baby if circumstances require. Also, this volume gets into the boys' personal history and introduces their mentor/substitute mom. I love ...more

This volume's character gushing is devoted to Winry Rockbell.

Oh, Winry. Girl-next-door, wench with a wrench, childhood friend to the Elric brothers, and blushing love interest for Edward...if only either of them would admit to it. A dedicated automail mechanic, in the tradition of her grandmother, Pinako, and inclined to minor medical treatment in homage to her doctor parents.

Having had her own share of tragedies, she remains positive and cheerful, caring and sensitive, and quick with a wrench t

How people found this to be the best volume so far is beyond me. I'd probably give it a 2.5. Bunny or whoever was irritating, entire volume felt like a filler with a lot of lame comedy till the last chapter, which was wonderful. Going to see this through, but this was quite a setback.

Birazını okuyayım diye başlamıştım, hepsi bitti. Elric kardeşlerin geçmişi aydınlanıyor, nasıl eğitim gördüler, simya yolculukları nasıl başladı bunları öğreniyoruz. Ancak bu ciltte sadece küçük bir kısmını öğrenebiliyoruz, diğer ciltte her şey daha netleşecektir.

Thief with the automails for legs is so damn annoying, also I'm dreading any flashbacks of human transmutation :( it's so unsettling to see and read.

FMA vol 5 is chapters 17-21

Alright, so this first starts off with Ed, Al, and Winry traveling to Rush Valley. Rush Valley is basically a town full of automail mechanics and automail limbs. Again, side characters poke fun at Ed's shortness and Al's hugeness, which is always fun to read about! While in Rush Valley, Ed gets robbed of his State Alchemist watch by a girl named Bunny. It was suspenseful (not to mention funny too!) to watch Ed chase Bunny because, well.......he sucked. Ed got help from

We finally get to see the past of Elric brothers. Their relationship with their parents, teachers and friends. Also we are taught some valuable life lessons along the way. The brothers witness the birth of a new life-a human child-blessed by everyone. They realize the preciousness of life. Once a life seizes to be on the face of the earth, it returns to dust where it came from in the first place. Still it remains in the memory of the people, cherished through out their life. Finally the grueling ...more

Volume five had some ups and had some downs. I loved reading about Rush Valley and getting to see this auto-mail mecca and the engineers (and people in need of them!) that lived there. Also reading about the story and the lessons learned by and from the pick pocket was good fun. Who knew one girl could give two alchemists so much trouble? And she does! It’s great fun! The most powerful part of the book was where the boys learned the limits of alchemy and the wonders of the human condition as the ...more

I'm kind of bothered by "birth" episodes in TV series and anime and manga and so forth. And I'm even more bothered by the fact that Winry delivers the baby - at least it's explained that her parents were doctors and that she read her books, so it's not *entirely* out of the realm of possibility that she might know a few things, but the idea rubs me the wrong way even so.

Aside from that, I loved how Edward wrecked a whole town while chasing a thief - then had to fix it. I don't think I've often s

As the series goes on, I'm getting less surprised at its popularity. This is just a fun, optimistic adventure story. And yes, that does cross over into idealism sometimes, but still, in an era where everything has to be dark or it gets written off as meaningless, it's good to have something that doesn't take itself too seriously. The series has a lot of re-read value because of that, and I think that's why it got so popular - it's so easy to come back to. Is it perfect? No - the worldbuilding is ...more

But the second half with Izumi was great I love Izumi so much

"Los alquimistas tienen cientos de años sin entender la ciencia de como un ser humano hace a otro. Una mujer lo hace todo solita en 280 días... [...] el ser humano es algo increíble"
Alphonse, Edward y Winry emprenden su viaje en búsqueda de su maestra, no sin antes hacer una parada no esperada. Una ladrona, un mecánico y una mujer embarazada le recordarán a los tres promesas del pasado y la motivación que necesitan para continuar con su destino.
Un buen número, muy emotivo.
Elizabeth Brenner
It's all about how the past has shaped the characters in volume 5. They emerge spectacularly, and Arakawa never wastes an opportunity to tie on several threads of the plot at once. From a lesser-skilled writer, this run of issues would be little more than transition material, but instead Arakawa layers on and reveals more foundation of the story to come.
