  • I love this show as a whole, albeit, I’ve watched over 30 episodes on Funimation’s website, but I highly recommend this, and can go into a long enough explanation of why it’s so good

      Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Episode 8 begins after the recap of the last episode with Al being attacked by someone in a suit of armor and Ed sneaking into Laboratory 5 and discovering a strange transmutation circle. Inside he encounters a guard called Number 66, who he discovers is a soul bound to a suit of armor just like his brother Alphonse. The two fight while Alphonse deals with Number 48 outside. Meanwhile Maes Hughes contacts Roy

      concerning Scar, and Roy’s promotion to Central.

      This episode is great, while it isn’t nearly as suspenseful as the first anime series when it comes to the Lab 5 arc, it’s still very well done and, it deviates toward the manga plot (no Shou Tucker being transmuted in the crucified, upside down head position while crossed with several animals anymore, EW!) And several events that took place in the first series do not happen the same way in this one, which is a relief, because the last few episodes felt repetitive, because they basically occur the same way in the last series.

      This episode was great; the fight scenes were well-choreographed, with a hilarious comedy scene between Maes Hughes and Roy Mustang to ease some of the tension. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is finally coming into its own and is starting to rise above and beyond the first Fullmetal Alchemist anime series.

      The slight changes in the plot from the first series that many people are familiar with is a breath of fresh air, it’s nice to see it’s not going to be a carbon copy of the first series and the show is starting to hold its own without having to be compared to the previous series. I love this show as a whole, albeit, I’ve watched over 30 episodes on Funimation’s website, but I highly recommend
      this, and can go into a long enough explanation of why it’s so good. This episode is excellent and exciting, especially to those who might have not watched the first series. It’s definitely a good one.

      Funimation is streaming Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood on their website Funimation.com/video under “Fullmetal: Alchemist: Brotherhood”, they upload episodes on Thursday at 10:00 AM CST. The English dub will be released on DVD next spring 2010. This is definitely a series to own on DVD.
