Product Description

Amazon.ca

As the popular fantasy-adventure Fullmetal Alchemist continues, Edward Elrich uses his wits, as well as his professional skills, to give a corrupt military officer a well-deserved comeuppance. Based on the story "The Mining Town" in the first collection of Hiromu Arakawa's original manga, this adventure proves that "Be Thou for the People" isn't just a motto for the Elrich Brothers. The citizens of the played-out gold rush town of Xenotime refuse to accept Edward and Alphonse for who they are because two strangers have assumed their identities. Both pairs of brothers learn and teach valuable lessons as they defeat a murderous land baron who's after the Philosopher's Stone. Every episode of this winning series delivers what the viewers want: adventure, magic, slapstick, and Edward's inevitable rants about his diminutive stature. But Fullmetal Alchemist also delivers something that's become rare in American and Japanese animation: heart. (Rated TV PG: violence, minor risqué humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars red water, miners, and.... food poisoning? Nov. 27 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
yeah, that's right, in the episode "The Phantom Theif", Ed gets food poisoning, which leads to some very funny dialogue (I'll turn you all into fish). These are, given, not the most mind blowing episodes of Full Metal Alchemist, but even if they scream filler episodes on the outside, they aren't, really. The first episode on this disc, "Be Thou for The People" introduces Lyra and Yoki, who, in turn, are essential characters in the series. "The Phantom Theif", the second episode, is very light hearted and VERY funny, even if it's not very important to the story. The only important line in this episode was "go to the city of Xenotime." In the last two episodes on the disc, "the Other brothers Elric, pt.1-2", Ed and Al do go to Xenotime and there they learn some important factors on the creation of the Philosopher's stone, and gain a new friend and rival. These episodes great, even though the outer exterior of them doesn't show us so.

4.0 out of 5 stars still top notch July 9 2005
By adead_poet@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Volume 3 is my least favorite of the 3 released dvds. It is still a great collection of episodes, they just fall furthest off the storyline. "Be Thou For the People" is Ed's first assignment to inspect a coalmine, which doesn't further his search for the philsopher's stone. It shows Ed and Al's character, just how good of people they are, but not one of my favorite episodes. "The Phantom Theif" is a fun episode but still one that doesn't further the main storyline. Then the other two episodes is the two part "The Other Brothers Elric" which once again puts us on the path to the philosopher's stone with Elric brothers imposters. Good episodes, but they don't live up to the first eight episodes. Which brings me to one of my main gripes, you only get four episodes and no extras for a heafty price. I know this is characteristic of anime, but I wish they would do better. Still, I almost gave this five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the Future June 11 2006
By Antonio D. Paolucci - Published on Amazon.com
With all the major elements of the Elric Brother's past explored, this volume goes back to where it left off in the first couple episode of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. The brothers are searching once again for the Philosopher's Stone, this time following clues that lead them into troublesome situations. After the first episode on this DVD, which is the last of the "past" episodes, the brothers find themselves in a city hunting a thief that advertises her crimes. After that, the brothers face a second pair of Elric brothers who are refining magical stones from red water in the hopes to duplicate the effect of the Philosopher's Stone.

Yes, I will say that the story slowed somewhat in this, but that had to have been expected considering the fast-paced beginning of this series. In fact, looking back, I think the slower pace was somewhat welcome. It allowed for the series to lighten up a little and give the viewers a chance to take a breather and just enjoy the goings-on of the Elric Brothers. Besides, it still has the excellent animation and music to back up the slowing plot. And though it slowed, I'm fairly sure that it will pick up sooner or later (my guess would be sooner, since I've already taken a peek at volume four).

I'm startled myself by how hooked I now am by this series. The first volume didn't catch my attention the way it probably should have, mainly do to my own skepticism. But now that I've given FMA the chance it deserves, I'm loving every second I spend watching this series, and I feel confident saying that FMA is definitely one of the better anime out at this point in time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the best Feb. 5 2007
By A. G Primack - Published on Amazon.com
I am not a spring chicken, so I get introduced to anime through my daughter. Some of it is fluffy love stories or improbable characters or situations that appear from nowhere to solve the day. Full Metal is none of these. The characters are believable even when they are a talking metal suit of armor. Ed and Al are young boys. Their mother dies. They desparately want her back. They do something forbidden. They pay. And they learn what the costs are. The world is a confusing place. They navigate, sometimes on their own and sometimes with people who they meet along the way. Not everyone is who they seem at the start. Finally they confront the costs of their and other peoples violations of the rules. Through the story there is humor and growth. The story is told from their point of view. They do not give in to the tragedies that surround them and keep fighting for the truth and for each other. I highly recommend this series for young teens and old fogies (that's me). Much better than most things available for teens these days. I rank this up with Dante and Faust as literature about pacts made by people not understanding the full consequences of their actions fighting to restore the balance of their lives.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical Episodes Dec 13 2010
By B. Lands - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Fullmetal Alchemist volume 3: The Equivelent Exchange is a great FMA DVD just like any other. This DVD contains episodes 9-12. Vic Mignogna, the voice of Edward Elric, enjoys episode 9 very much ^^

But anyway, back to the DVD, this episodes are not like your other typical Fullmetal Alchemist episodes, but it's not like they're bad. They're great! This DVD even comes with the complete first chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist. And like the other DVDs, it comes with a little booklet.

Fullmetal Alchemist and anime fans will love this DVD ^^
