Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: The Final Showdown

Currently finished: Episode 59

At this point, I can say if anybody remotely liked the story of Fullmetal Alchemist, you should totally watch this series. Regardless whether you have seen the original series, this is going to be a blast. At least to me it is.

I only mildly liked (if at all) the original Fullmetal Alchemist because I felt it dragged on a bit too much towards the end of the series. (Well, guess what, that wasn't supposed to be part of the story to begin with.) This reboot, however, not only it compacted everything, it almost had no dull moment, period. I think this is partially due to the fact they produced this new series with the assumption of fact that most people already possesses some of the background knowledge of this fictional world, or at least be able to find them easily since the original series had quite the cult following. Therefore, the plot progression is on an ultra-fast track where before I knew it, it's already at the brink of topping episode 60.

Supposedly, the story will drop its curtain at episode 63, which is only four episodes away. This final climax is very well crafted where every single supporting role throughout the entire story actually all come together meet in a single point. The result? Quite explosive. With only four more episodes to go, I'm very eager to see how they are going to end this once and for all. I'd be extremely angry if they don't.

When i reached episode 45, this anime had reached second place in my top 10 of all times. Every monay i start to check the fanssub site for updates because i can't wait to see the next one. It is one of the best stories i have ever seen, it has lot twists that almost blow my mind and above all there isn't a character that i want to dissapear from the series. by my opinion this season has surpassed his precessor by far.
