Firstly, I apologise to Roy Mustang, for calling him baka. He is one hell of a clever man! I was mad hearing Ross died, but then she is alive! Thanks, Roy Mustang, for keeping my faith in you.
The battle between Lust and Roy was terrific!
And then woah! Things are going to get real. Edward's father returned! I am excited to see where the hell he was. And of course, the confortation between Ed and father.

"As long as there's life in my body... I swear I'll never let another person become a victim in this deadly game!"


Things are really getting crazy at the start of this book, and it was hard for me to figure out just exactly what was going on. I knew something was up... and something was! I was glad to see that I was able to keep my faith in one of my favorite characters and that, in the end, his actions in the previous book were explained in this one.

Finally, in this installment, we meet E

Piano piano, seppure con troppa lentezza, mi sto ricordando perché amavo questa serie. Sopratutto perché a livello di conoscenza alchemica qualcosa accade, oltre l'introduzione di un nuovo personaggio e qualche piccola rivelazione. Diciamo che la parte migliore di tutte è il compattarsi di un gruppo alquanto eterogeneo a confronto di un nemico sfuggente: Mustang e i suoi, i fratelli Elric e Ling assieme a Foo e Lan Fan. Il volume finisce ciò che il nono aveva iniziato, mostrando una dipartita ch ...more

It occurred to me that it might make it easier on those who have only seen the anime to list the chapters in these short reviews as well as the volume #. So...volume 10 includes chapters 38, 39, 40, and 41.

Some personal favorites in this volume: Ling (I just can't call him Lin) coming in by the window with that grin on his face; the line-up of Mustang's team that shows Havoc as being the tallest and Roy himself not being much taller than Riza; Roy following Barry the Chopper down a street in a

Roy Mustang, the alchemist extraordinaire, is the featured character in this novel. We learn a lot about him and find out even more about his recent actions. I needed that explanation.

I was pleased about the progress made in this novel. After so many plot lines starting, I was glad this volume was more development and forward motion.

Fights ensue with Roy and his team, against the mysterious Lust, Envy and Gluttony. Right at the beginning the story moves in a fast pace. And go Roy! Also there are some interesting surprises later on, especially near the end that made me say, uh oh, what's going to happen next. Ed and Al are still looking for any info on the Philosopher's Stone but when they think they found something, it turns out that maybe they rather had not found out at all. All the while the mysterious Lust and Glutton a ...more

Another fantastic volume. I'm thoroughly enjoying the twists that have occurred as the story is expanding--introducing other countries etc., and introducing the first immediately impactful new character in some time. It is apparent that the characters from Xing may yet play a large role, and that the story may extend there, but the presentation of (view spoiler) ...more
In Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 10 the whole volume is filled with surprises as the plot does another twist revealing new surprises and new information on the homunculi. I also noticed in this volume for the first time how old Edward has gotten, especially in his picture on the cover. He has been drawn very believably growing older and growing up throughout the series. The plot thickens and things get complex as you are trying to figure out who knew what when but Arakawa keeps you engaged and keep ...more

Nuevamente Arakawa no pide ni da cuartel. Si en tomos anteriores me quejaba de que no cazaba muy bien para dónde iba la cosa, acá me callo la boca. La espera valió la pena y tanto las preguntas que se responden en esta etapa de la serie tomo como las nuevas que se formulan me dejaron perplejo, en el sentido más emocionante y disfrutable de todos. Si en tomo anteriores me quejaba de que no sabía para que estaban los personajes nuevos, acá me lo voy respondiendo con aprobación, y además celebro cu ...more

This volume includes one of the most intense and game-changing battles so far. I usually skim through the fight scenes, but this one kept my attention and stuck with me long after I finished the book. There is some good character development, especially with Mustang. And of course, there’s a healthy dose of random humor. The conspiracies continue to deepen and have me eager to read the next book.

• No sexual content

Volume 10 of Fullmetal Alchemist resolves the Barry the Chopper story and answers the question of what happened to Maria Ross. More importantly, though, the book expands the world and the history beyond that of Amestris.

This history and world building helps to put the story so far into perspective. It also helps to explain, or rather, refine, the rules of Alchemy as we know them. So far it's been all about equivalent exchange and knowing the Truth. Now, though, there's a second type, called Rend

Una de las mejores partes del anime y del manga, Roy Mustang es como Erwin, ve todo más allá de lo que está sucediendo y Cómo mató a Lust es absolutamente perfecto, se lleva mis 10 estrellas si las hubiera.
In this fast-paced volume, there are lots of reveals, including, but not limited to, who killed Winry's parents. Edward had many surprises come his way. Is he capable of handling the various surprises? He is just a kid, after all, and has been known to act out, blow his top, etc. without really thinking things through. It is one of the aspects of his character that brings humor and makes us ache just a little bit for him. This bundle of compassion, anger, immaturity -- all wrapped up in this tin ...more

The story is starting to develop along with the well-developed characters, and it's a really enjoyable read. The growth of the characters from the east has been well done.

So badass. Al has a couple really great lines in this volume. Roy and Riza continue to be incredible. Gotta say tho Lust's death seen is much better on screen.
I've been really enjoying the last few volumes of this series. There's been a really good (almost perfect) balance of humour, action, and heart-felt/heart-wrenching scenes throughout all of the volumes, but I've really been noticing it in the last few in particular.

These are getting more and more exciting with every volume! I remember why I started this series so many years ago, but I can't find a reason for why I never finished. So exciting!

Barry the Chopper gets hunted down by his real body! A dangerous secret of Lust's is revealed, and some backstory concerning the murder mystery in volume 9!(I was SO MAD at Mustang for whait I 'thought' he did!) i really liked that part.

HAVOC AND MUSTANG ARE SERIOUSY WOUNDED IN A BATTLE WITH LUST! tHAT PART WAS REALLY INTENSE! Volume 10 was very exciting! I don't know what my favorite part was, everything was awesome! I LOVE Gluttony! He's creepy but funny at the same time! Can't wait to r

One of the highlight volumes of the series for me; so much action and emotion in one volume. The standout scene, an epic and powerful battle between Roy Mustang and the homunculus Lust, had me breathless. I came to love and respect several characters much more in this volume, especially Mustang and Havoc. And of course this volume also locked me in as a supporter of the Mustang/Hawkeye relationship...there's something about those two... ;)
