Such a satisfying conclusion to this series!
Well, it’s over. What am I supposed to do with my life now?
What a satisfying ending to such a wonderful series. I was grinning like an idiot when it all finally wrapped up, that's how happy I was. So many sacrifices were made by the characters throughout these 27 volumes and it all paid off by the end. Looking back, so many damn characters died too (view spoiler) but their deaths served actual purposes, no matter how hear

The ending was simply spectacular. I liked the feeling of knowing there is more to the story than what we know at the moment, we are allowed to peak into the future. And what a future it is.

Higly recommend for you to read this series if you haven't. If you want my full review of the series you can find it here: Review for FMA

This was seriously the BEST series I've ever read. The most perfect ending to a perfect series.

And it's over.

It's strange how very personal Ed's and Al's motivations are throughout this manga ... and yet it still becomes epic. This isn't power fantasy as so many mangas tend to be in my (very limited) experience. if anything, power is actually lost here. And while there are battles (and plenty of them), Fullmetal Alchemist is a tight, character driven story.

There are no invincible Mary Sues here - all the protagonists go through some heavy character arcs and come out for the better. The p

I honestly can't believe I finished this series, my heart is broken. This is such a satisfying conclusion to what is now my favourite all time manga series, I'm so glad I gave this a chance. These characters, this world, this story, mean a lot to me and the development of my reading, and I'm glad I got to experience this for the first time relatively spoiler-free. The final little scene broke my heart especially, and it has all of those moments you wait the entire manga to see happen. So so incr ...more

Fullmetal Alchemist ends exactly the way you expect it to--with a huge climactic battle that pretty much amounts to the entire fighting force against the Dwarf in the Flask, and then a "where are they now?" epilogue detailing the events of the days/weeks after the end of the last battle. It is not a distinctive conclusion in any way, but it is a satisfying one. Over the course of twenty-seven volumes, Arakawa's series never flagged, and that's impressive indeed.

“That’s the correct answer, alchemist. Take it all.”

It’s really impossible to measure the full impact this story has had on me over the years as a reader, a creator, and a person. Buying the volumes in print may be one of the wisest purchases I’ve ever made, and I look forward to rereading and re-crying about the Elric brothers for many more years to come.

Why did this have to end?! T-T

It was an incredible ending and very emotional. I may have actually cried. I must say that the characters are all completely lovable. I am quite sad that this journey had to end although I am honoured to have shared it with these awesome characters.

A really great conclusion to a great series. I don't know what took me so long to read it, or even just watch either of the adaptations. My only complaint about the last few volumes is that there wasn't enough Winry. I would've been happier if she had had a larger role.

*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! *

This was perfect.

It pains me having finished again this amazing tail. Still can’t help but cry over the same character’s who meet their faiths but all the memories and life they brought to the page to all the characters, good or evil. This series always remains dear to me and it will never grow old. 13+ years later and I will re-read and watch this again over and over.

I read this in one sitting because I was too impatient to wait until tomorrow. I think my experience with Game of Thrones gave me a pessimistic expectation on how this would end, so I'm surprised things turned out the way they did.

Alphonse and May Chang tho, that was a ship I didn't see coming.

Ten billion Stars. This is one of my new all time favorite series and has changed me as a person. The ending was everything I wanted and more. I have no words to explain how much I loved this story.
