Characters Remaining Max 10,
Enjoyment 7 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood gets an immense amount of praise in the MAL community, is the 1 ranked show and is constantly referred to as a masterpiece and the greatest show ever created.
I've seen many fans preach about how "it lives up to the hype" and "can never receive too much praise". Now this is just the opinion of one guy. I'm certainly not the law of the land or anything.
However, I personally feel as though calling FMA: B a masterpiece and the champion of all shows is a bit of a stretch. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy it or that it isn't a very solid addition to the ranks of notable shows; I really would like to preface this review by saying that I believe that FMA: B is a very good show and I wouldn't be nearly as harsh on it if it weren't for the God status the show has attained in America.
I would happily remand "greatest show ever made" to "greatest long-running shonen ever made if you haven't seen the Hunter X Hunter" I'm not a huge fan of the MAL categorical rating system, as I've mentioned in some of my previous reviews.
I oftentimes outright ignore it. However, looking at the categories right now, I feel as though this is one instance where I can use it to talk about everything I want to so I'm going to use it.
B plot and world-building are some of its strongest aspects. The world that it creates is an immersive, full-feeling thing with many animate pieces that move even when you aren't looking at them. It's an extremely creative world as well, adopting its own set of universal laws including alchemy through equivalent exchange, mind-body duality and its own interpretation of a higher power, and it sticks by these laws.
Never once does the story contradict its own rules, instead using them in creative ways to build off of each other.
The plot is also one of the most engaging parts of the show, unveiling itself at just the right pace to keep you interested whilst still keeping a few major cards to play at the very end.
The pieces fall into place in a way that is satisfying because it simultaneously mind-blowing and obvious, and that's one of the marks of strong storytelling.
B story is certainly one of the best I've seen, I find that I have to withhold my 10 score here on the grounds that its incredible direction and creativity are marred by some detrimental weaknesses. First of all, the exposition is handled extremely poorly. The first and third episodes feel like they're from some shitty cartoon network show, the show blatantly ignores the show-don't-tell rule in the entirety of its first chunk with characters spelling out exactly what is happening and why it's happening and its tendency to repeat important plot points over and over again quite frankly feels insulting to me as the audience as though the show is assuming I'm not able to pay attention or figure things out for myself and need to have the fact that Ed and Al committed the sin of human transmutation and lost their bodies told to me at least twenty-five times in the first two hours of show.
Secondly, there's a period of time which I would probably refer to as the third fourth of the show episodes ish in which the show drags incredibly, adopting a typical battle-shonen approach of having characters engage in multiple-episode long one-on-one or two-on-one battles, giving them plenty of time to pose and stand off and monologue at each other.
This isn't how fighting or war works, and these contrived battles really take away a lot of the climactic atmosphere. Finally, the show's ending is not nearly as satisfying as I wish it had been.
The final few episodes are for the most part brilliant, but once the show plays all its cards and it's resolution time, it wraps itself up with cliches and in-your-face themes. Thus the 8 score.Re: use of '&' in the hsc.. i write +, its not a matter of ease, its a matter of habit - i often write my own notes in shorthand so im more used to + than "and".
as mentioned before, when you have to write out the word when ususally you dont, it disrupts your train of thought constantly. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an alternate retelling of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga that is closer to the source material than the previous adaptation, this time covering the entire story.
