How did I forget to update this? Of course these volumes continue to be a 5 stars for me.

I like how some parts are different than the anime. I think the manga allows you to spend time with the characters and think how they evolve, which might not happen in the anime with the sound effects and the animation of the battles. I really liked the separation between Al and Ed and how they grew from the time apart from one another.

Also, this volume had the most epic battle of the entire series. Yes, M

Volume 10 - This volume was a nice chance for Alphonse to shine, and provided some interesting developments to the overarching plot line. Overall rating: 4 stars

Volume 11 - Lots of action and plot development in this one, along with great character growth and depth. Overall rating: 5 stars

Volume 12 - Ok so that twist was hinted at in the last volume but it still shocked me! Right from the start, this volume was so intense, so much development; it included plenty of action yet also lots

[third read for 2018 booktubeathon, for the movie adaptation challenge]

5/5 stars

Oh my god this volume was so fucking emotional. Winry and Edward really went for my throat in the latter half, can you believe this? I'm so happy I checked this series out, it's incredible, but every single chapter makes me upset/cry in some way, my poor little heart can't cope.

The plot and the character development in this series is amazing! This particular volume contains a steadily moving plot and character growth in spades!

Muahaha. My collection is slowly growing... :) dang I love this manga. And the Brotherhood anime. SO GOOD. Edward Elric was my first love. Screw that Cullen fellow. JOKES, I still love him too. Just not as much. Okay, going on a tangent now. Gonna stop. Now. :D

Volume's 10-12 of Fullmetal Alchemist are the most action packed in the series to date. The punches almost never stop flying with no less than three major encounters with the Homunculi. The action is brutal, fast-paced and still manages to move the plot along with every page! And in true FMA tradtion, there are some shocking and powerful revelations revealed. Don't sleep on the manga just because you've seen the anime all the way. This is a whole other ball game!

Me: *sobs*
Arakawa: "And some more!"
Me: *cries* "Why?!"

Arakawa, you brilliantly evil person who created this amazing story, in case you're wondering: Yeah, I am fine. Everything is perfectly fine. Don't mind me, I will just have to get my hands on the next 3-in-1 volume asap.

I really enjoyed this volume. I think it might have been my favorite. I am curious to see what happens next. I have an idea about something and I want to see if I end up being right.

Fullmetal Alchemist (3 in 1 ed.) - Vol. 10, 11 & 12 - Manga

The overwhelming ratings for this edition are 5 stars. It was a struggle to get through this one.

While I enjoyed Vol. 1-9, due to my TBR, I'm calling it quits on this series, like others, unless they are thoroughly entertaining.

*The story of Fullmetal Alchemist, following the Elric brothers, is the perfect story. It has everything: The balance between dramatic moments and moments of comic relief is amazing, the characters are well rounded and has great growth and, finally, it deals with difficult subjects in a nuanced and respectful manner.

Also, the art style is amazing – especially in those comic relief moments! It’s just priceless! That in memoriam part at the end of each volume is just hilarious! *

A small bit of a lapse in my memory between this one and the last one made me a little lost in volume 10, so I appreciate the small reminder the author fit into the story to help me catch up. But anyway, good volume, lots of drama, and good characters. Onward!

Of all the Homunculi Gluttony might just be the scariest when he flips out ... precisely because he's a complete idiot otherwise.

... alright, Pride still takes the cake in the scary department. But this was intense.

I want to be Hawkeye when I grow up. And Mustang is a much better character in the manga than I knew from watching the first anime.
