Anime Preview: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Episode 1

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a sequel to the widely popular Fullmetal Alchemist. However, it's not a direct sequel like the movie was. Instead, it seems to be taking the original story and just offering the continuing adventures of Edward and Alphonse. I'm not yet entirely sure when this is taking place, but it seems to be in-between one of the parts they skipped over in the original series.

I watched the first episode subbed. In it, Ed and Al are sent by Mustang to fight a rouge soldier who uses water alchemy. Throughout the episode, we get re-introduced to a bunch of different characters from the original series such as Mustang, Armstrong, King Bradley, and Hughes. After watching it, the entire thing feels very much like FMA should feel. The animation is still headed by BONES, the original voice cast returns, there's still that perfect mix of comedy and action, oh... and you can't forget about the short jokes! The entire thing felt very authentic, and I recommend it to anybody who likes any sort of action comedy. Definitely a must-watch for FMA fans.
