Fullmetal Alchemist: BrotherhoodReviewed by Amehsk

Edward and Alphonse Elric are two alchemist brothers searching for the legendary catalyst called the Philosopher's Stone, a powerful object which would allow them to recover their bodies (which were lost in an attempt to bring their mother back to life through alchemy).
The story takes you through the various stage of human nature and make you think deeply about yourself in the process. Since the homunculi in this anime are based on the Seven Deadly Sins, they are able to portray what makes a human a man.
Very good animation. The scenes work perfectly with the story line and it's wonderful to watch.
Also the graphics and art work are much better than the manga (which you usually find in all shonen mangas).
It's fun to watch and most moments are jaw-dropping.
Suits the mood and scenes perfectly. There are different background musics that are played repeatedly at different moments but all that works well together.
Very original, though a few characters are unnecessary.
The characters were designed to the role they would play in the anime and though sometimes there are too many of them, they always come back to help with the plot one way or the other.
I liked that the story was able to express and evoke so many emotions and reflect on sins and desires of being human.
Very strong and makes you think differently after you watch it.
