Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Seinaru Hoshi – Movie Trailer

The official site for the Fullmetal Alchemist movie, subtitled “The Sacred Star of Milos”, recently added a minute long trailer. The movie is intended to tie-in with Brotherhood (i.e. the manga’s story) but as a side story before the actual conclusion. It’s directed by Murata Kazuya (assistant director of CODE GEASS) and the script is by Shinpo Yuuichi (author of the novel Whiteout). L’arc~en~Ciel is performing the theme song, whereas BONES is back for the animation production and seems to going with a very subtle change in style.

* Warning: The official site is Flash-heavy and spasm-inducing with its loading pages.

… More after the break, including details on the story.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 64 (END)

「旅路の涯」 (Tabiji no Hate)
“The Horizon of a Journey”

I admittedly read the remaining portions of the final chapter of the manga after watching episode 63 last week, so I wasn’t in for too many surprises in this epilogue episode. Unfortunately, they didn’t add anything new — such as Ed and Al’s reaction to Hohenheim’s passing which I would’ve liked to see — but the rest of it played out really nicely.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 63

「扉の向こう側」 (Tobira no Mukou Gawa)
“The Other Side of The Gate”

With the fight against Father looking like it was pretty much settled last time, I wasn’t expecting Greed to get pulled back into the fray for his philosopher’s stone. More so than that, Greed tricking Ling into giving up on the fruitless struggle so that he can play hero was something I really didn’t foresee.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 62

「凄絶なる反撃」 (Seizetsu Naru Hangeki)
“The Violent Counterattack”

It was no holds barred with everyone unleashing everything they had to whittle away Father’s remaining souls and make him reach the breaking point, but they had to first survive a huge blast that took out a huge chunk of Central headquarters.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 61

「神を呑みこみし者」 (Kami wo Nomikomishi Mono)
“The One Who Devours God”

With the recent confirmation that the series will be 64 episodes (not 63), the pacing was so quick here that it left me wondering what we’re still in store for.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 60

「天の瞳、地の扉」 (Ten no Hitomi, Chi no Tobira)
“Heaven’s Eye, Earth’s Gate”

As amazingly epic as this was with Father activating the Amestris-wide transmutation circle during the solar eclipse, the episode title of all things took away from the surprise of it all.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 59

「失われた光」 (Ushinawareta Hikari)
“Lost Light”

Well that’s news to me. I didn’t know you can force someone to perform alchemy against their will and let them suffer the consequences of doing so. Just when I thought things were looking up with the arrival of May, Darius, Jerso, and Zampano, both Wrath and Pride show up to spoil the parade.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 58

「ひとばしら」 (Hitobashira)
“Human Sacrifices”

As if Fu’s valiant sacrifice last time wasn’t enough to give me goosebumps, the story drops two more bombs on me this episode.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 57

「永遠の暇」 (Eien no Itoma)
“Eternal Departure”

Wow, what an action-packed episode. While Greed and Fu went toe-to-toe with Wrath to dire results, we also had Ed and the others underground fighting off all the King Bradley rejects before a huge transmutation circle was activated on Central.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 56

「大総統の帰還」 (Daisoutou no Kikan)
“The Return of the Führer”

So with last episode’s preview spoiling all the fun of Greed’s grand entrance and the homunculus versus homunculus battle, it was nice to see them make up for that with another one.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 55

「大人たちの生き様」 (Otona-tachi no Ikizama)
“The Adults’ Way of Life”

It’s time for the kiddies to step aside and let the adults show them how it’s done. From the Armstrong siblings to Izumi and Sig’s arrival into the Central fray, homunculus or not, Sloth doesn’t stand a chance when he’s up against that much brute strength — particularly Izumi’s.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Tales of a Master

「師匠(せんせい)物語」 (Shishou (Sensei) Monogatari)
“Tales of a Master”

As mentioned last week, a short OVA focusing on Izumi’s “Tales of a Master” chapter of the manga was released with the 9th DVD/BD volume.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 54

「烈火の先に」 (Rekka no Saki ni)
“Before the Conflagration”

Continuing off from the good cliffhanger last time, we learn that one of the two characters is indeed Envy masquerading in disguise.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 53

「復讐の炎」 (Fukushuu no Honoo)
“Flame of Vengeance”

Selective intelligence manipulation at its finest! I wouldn’t have suspected Mustang’s crew to pin the coup d’état on the goons at Central, but it sure made for some good laughs along with Briggs bringing in the heavy artillery.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 52

「みんなの力」 (Minna no Chikara)
“Everyone’s Strength”

Philosopher stones sure are handy when it comes to battle. Just take it from Al as he regenerates his armor on-the-fly while duking it out with Pride and Kimblee.
