Audience Reviews for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Season 1

  • Oct 03, 2021
    Superb adaptation of the classic manga that improves on every way over the original. Sticking closer to the manga, this anime version is actual shorter with a more focused message, while still including all the action and humor of the original. Easily one of the best anime series in recent years.

    FMA Brotherhood is the greatest anime ever made. Its incredibly written story, beautiful and horrific animation, it's dark and depressing moments, its happy and hopeful moments, its iconic characters, its spectacular music, everything works to make this amazing show even better. No anime ever made is better than FMA Brotherhood.

    I watched it the first time 7 years ago and it's still my number 1 anime of all time. I recommend everyone to watch it. It's not just an anime but a full body story that one can learn something from, for sure
