Fullmetal Alchemist TCG Impression

So the basic law of "Equivalent Exchange" states that in order to gain something, something of value must be given up in return. For Ed and Al this meant a body, leg then an arm (to save a soul). Pretty steep price for trying to bring your mother back to life with forbidden alchemy, but that's just the beginning.

Fullmetal Alchemist follows Edward Elric and his younger brother Alphonse Elric. Fullmetal is the name given to Ed when he becomes the youngest state alchemist ever, mainly due to his automail (metal) leg and arm. A leg lost trying to bring back his mother, and an arm sacrificed to bond his brother's soul to a suit of armor when he lost his body, also trying to bring back their mother. So, after this disaster we see Ed and Al years later where Ed becomes a state alchemist to utilize the resources of the government to find the Philosophers Stone, a legendary stone that will amplify any alchemy. Why find this stone, well to get his arm and leg back and his brothers body, to be normal again. It is this simple quest that drives every facet of FMA from the manga to the video game.

I won't spoil the story for you, but how you get into it is your call. Do you pick up the manga? How about the anime? Maybe you'll try the video game? These are the best choices, I recommend all of them, but an "Equivalent Exchange" of this level will lighten you wallet big time. So check this out, here are some good and bad points about each.

card games for FMA just recently came out so I can't tell you too much about it now, but check back soon because I will. Listen, this is my opinion, what I think, so if you disagree, tell me. The manga rocks, what do you think?

  6. Ok soundtrack question. Get it one of two ways, import or buy the exclusive edition of DVD 6 which comes with the DVD. Oh yeah, you can also get the CD 'Smile' from Tofu Records that has this track on it.
