Full Metal Alchemist 2 Brotherhood Episode 1 + discussion for episode 2
I just got done watching the first episode of Full Metal Alchemist 2 Brotherhood, and it feels good to see Ed and Al back at it again. The good news for noobs to the series is that you don’t have to have seen the first run to watch this one… it appears they have reset the story. The bad news is for the rest of us that did see the first run, it appears they have reset the story… will this run get on track with the manga this time??? (I doubt it) Only time will tell…

-Below is a quick breakdown of the first episode-
The first thing I noticed about this episode was its high production value. The animation was crisp and the voice acting was spot on. For those of us who have seen the first Full Metal series, I think it felt a bit rushed, but still great to see them back in action.
Many familiar characters made their return, including one of my favorite anime characters of all time, Col. Mustang, and almost equally as likeable, Armstrong….
Armstrong is awesome suace… This guy plays the role of comic relief perfectly… I put him on the same level of comic relief awesomeness as Maito Gai from Naruto and Pesche from Bleach. Which do you think is the funniest?
OMG! I could be wrong… but aren’t you supposed to be f**kin dead?! Ermmm… I see dead people…
It also doesn’t appear that they will be shying away from the violence or blood that were staples of the first run. It seems that they will definitely not puss out and kid it up to reach a broader market. And that is a very good thing.
There baaaaaack… Lust and Greed seem primed to return as the primary antagonists, which who would really complain about that? They were great villains in the first run, and should be equally great in this series…
The preview for the next episode seems like they are going to cover what people who saw the first run already know, but I’m still excited to see this series again… how are you feelin it?
Let me know what you thought about the return of one of the most popular anime series ever and any thoughts you have on the direction of the series… will it follow the manga again or go off on its own like the first run did?
