Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Episode 1

The Flame Alchemist makes a splashing entrance.

Well well, a reboot of the original FMA is finally here! In contrast to the original, it has veered off right from the start and we get to revisit the world of FMA. With a bigger budget, we get better animation, better sound quality(note the part where armstrong activated his transmutation circle on the glove, you get the ‘charging up’ sound effect lol) but I did felt that they could have cut down on the ‘hey shortie’ jokes. Most of the state alchemists entered the picture without much fanfare and introduction which would make new watchers a little disoriented but put a smile to those who watched the originals(gah, armstrong). The tone of the whole show seems to mirror that of Soul eater where we get extreme swings from light heartedness to extreme seriousness. This shouldn’t surprise us since BONES was the production studio for both Soul Eater and this season of FMA…That said, the first episode was refreshing and enjoyable since it wasn’t a total copy of the originals and we get epic action scenes straight off =D

Notes: I’m actually trying to finish Death note anime on my cowon A3 before rewatching the originals FMA, Scrapped princess followed by Ghost in the shell. Nothing else seems to interest me this season.

Edit: After chatting with Brian, I changed my mind. Shangri-La, Eden of the East and Dragonball Kai might be on my watchlist…
