The Final Chapter! With the help of Hohenheim and their allies, the Elric brothers launch a desperate final attack against the homunculus “ Father.” But to claim victory, some may have to make the ultimate sacrifice. And when the dust clears, will a happy ending await our favorite characters in the final volume of Fullmetal Alchemist?
I wonder, what will happend General Amstrong? Will she and Mustang fight for "The Chair"??!? Naaayy... she isn't that political type anyway. She's back to north I guess. Haha...Major Alex ...more
This series has grown on me, since the time we first saw Ed with his short temper and Al with his lion heart. It would be unjust for me to leave the rest of the gang out; every single one of them has become a part of me. Scar, Mustang, Hughes, and even Envy.
Ah, I guess I'm being a little melodramatic. Forgiv ...more
And on their way there they touched many people's lives and some of them folloed their example.
This volume doesn't stop with c ...more
Arakawa didnt get greedy and milk it for 500 volumes and FMA is a rare mature quality manga for its genre.
Entering into this series, I did not know fully what to expect. I’d heard the title passed around a lot between my various social groups. When one of my friends, who owned books 1-10, lent me the first copy, along with the first copy of Rurouni Kenshin, I definitely found Kenshin more appealing. I made it through FMA volumes 1-2, thought, “Meh, it’s okay, but I don’t like where this is heading,” but, because I had book 3 close at hand, figured I might as wel ...more
Hiromu Arakawa is a genius. She has crafted a well written series that actually has a true storyline. We really feel the heartache that the Elric brothers endure along the way while trying to find the means to restore their ...more
منذ سنوات كان أخي يلح علي قائلا بأنني يجب أن أشاهد الأنمي المبني على هذه المانغا، و لكني لم آخذ الأمر أبدا بجدية ففكرة بطلين الأول بأطراف صناعية معدنية و الآخر سكنت روحه درع قديم لفارس ما لم تجذبني كثيرا. و كم كنت مخطئة حينها
هذا العام عندما قررت أخيرا أن أجربها كنت أبحث عن شيء مختلف عما اقرأ عادة، فقد بدأت أشعر بغياب الإثارة في كتبي. لم تخطر ببالي منذ البداية و لكني وجدتها مصادفة في إحدى قوائم موقع القودريدز التي صنفت العمل على أنه واحد من أفضل المانغا و الرسوم ال ...more
This series could have gotten out of control with its huge cast of characters (all so fully developed to boot) and the vast scope of the story, but it didn't. Arakawa maintained control throughout, creating an epic story that I'll want to reread time and time again.
I'm so nostalgic about Fullmetal Alchemist. It was the first anime that I watched that wasn't from my childhood. And the manga was just as amazing. I'm glad I finally took time to read it. This story about two brothers helping each other really touches me. I'm all for family members and their relationships.
FMA is one of my favorite series. It has complex heroes, comp ...more
Anyhow, I just wanted to make sure that the review I wrote and always intended to post on the final volume was, in a way: it can be found here.
Overall, this series was pretty amazing. Lots of action and the comedy section really dampened how serious this manga really was. I loved it. And all the characters too. I couldn't believe it but I also grew to love Greed as well. Didn't think I would but then again, I did end up being sympathetic to the last few homunculi :|
I did see this online when it first came out (and what took me three years to read the last manga? And how is it three years??). There were things I didn't remember (like a scene with Rebecca and Riza while she's being doctored) or that ...more
I can't wait to watch the anime series and the movie!
This final volume made me tear up because everything was so intense! Especially Van Hohenheim as a character touches me the most! I seriously don't get why a lot of people include him to the "Bad anime" dads trio (along with SNKs Grisha Jaeger and that Evangelion dude), yeah the external characteristics like wearing glasses, being some kind of sciencist etc are there but he tried everything to be with his family and sav ...more
True friendship encompasses trust, loyalty and love. All in their purest forms! This is precisely why I enjoy reading shonen manga because the friendship is always strong in them. What separates FMA from the rest though besides its originality and exemplary execution of the plot is the characters. It really delves deep into the characters as individuals, major and minor characters alike, making it pretty easy to associate with them even the w ...more
Gore: Yes, kind of, it's hard for me to be too sure: there is a lot of blood, dead bodies.
Magic: Yes (the alchemy they use in their world is kind of like magic, only to them it's science, but I'm counting it as magic, since it's like magic)
Romance: (This one's kind of hard to say, since it's a fighting manga and a lot is going on right now, but there is still some love, like, I'm pretty sure that w ...more

Me estuvieron presionando para que viera esta historia y ahora estoy obsesionada con ella (me pasa siempre).
Amo a cada uno de los personajes y sus historias; y pues... me voy a seguir llorando un rato más.
Born on May 8, 1973 in Tokachi, Hokkaidō, Japan, Arakawa was born and raised on a dairy farm with three elder sisters and a younger brother. Arakawa thought about being a manga artist "since [she] was little" and during her school years, she would often draw on textbooks. After gr ...more
