4.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! Dec 25 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a tale of suffering and redemption. A beautiful story of two brothers who refuse to give up in spite of everything life has put them through. It is a wonderful story. A tear jerker. A heart warmer. An inspiration. I loved it. The manga is a bit different than the anime. To get the whole picture i recommend getting the blu-ray anime sets along with the manga. Get FMA and FMA Brotherhood as soon as you can. You wont be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new and bold direction. May 21 2007
By Don Kangol - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A new and bold direction. The series is very quickly moving in a different direction from the anime it inspired. The plot and the action just becomes more intense and intriguing with every volume. And at the end of this volume things heat up to the point of a small war in the streets between the homunculi and Mustang's men. A must read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Barry the Chopper, misplaced justice, and a really BIG cat! What will the Elrics face next? Sept. 10 2006
By Calamari - Published on
Format: Paperback
Fullmetal Alchemist volume nine begins when the Elrics, Winry, Prince Lin, and his two guards travel to Central. Unaware of the recent tragedy, the Elrics and Winry want to visit Hughes and his family. To Ed's dismay, Prince Lin decides to tag along for the ride.

Meanwhile, Warrant Officer Falman is baby-sitting the living suit of armor containing the soul of Barry the Chopper. Falman is frustrated because Barry is always eager to "chop" someone, and Jean Havoc is so obsessed with his new girlfriend that he fails to bring Falman any useful information on the situation at headquarters. When Barry breaks out of Falman's custody and goes on a rampage, it's all that the military can do to recapture him.

Back at headquarters, Mustang investigates the conspiracy surrounding the military and lab five, and tries to identify Lieutenant Colonel Hughes's murderer. When the military police announce that Second Lieutenant Maria Ross is the prime suspect, Mustang is more interested in avenging his friend's death than discovering the truth....

If you thought the previous installments of Fullmetal Alchemist were dark, I have some news for you. They're going to get darker. The ninth volume is less lighthearted than the first eight, although there are still hysterically funny moments that help alleviate the gloomy atmosphere.

There is also additional character development for Ed, Al, Mustang, Armstrong, and even (surprise!) Barry the Chopper. Who suspected Barry the Chopper would reveal his human side? Certainly not me!

The art is, as always, amazing, and the story was so compelling that I could not put the book down until I finished. There is also a huge cliffhanger at the end of volume nine; if you thought that the cliffhanger at the end of volume three was nerve-wracking, perhaps you should stay far, far away from volume nine.

Unfortunately, there is one small error in the dialogue. At one point, Winry calls Hawkeye "Ms. Liza" instead of "Ms. Riza". I'm not sure if this is a translation error or a printing error, but it would be nice if it could be fixed for later editions.

Also included in this volume: a hint as to the true nature of the homunculi; larger parts for side characters, such as Hawkeye, Armstrong, and Falman; another glimpse at what happened during the Ishvarlan revolution; and, of course, another chapter in the endless cat-in-Al's-armor joke.

So, drop whatever you're doing, and order Fullmetal Alchemist volume nine! You won't be disappointed, although you may spend the next two months counting down the seconds until volume ten comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars FRIEND OR FOE? Oct. 6 2006
By Sesho - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ed, Al, and Winry return to Central Command and land plop in the middle of the latest Homunculi plot to frame their friend 2nd Lt. Maria Ross as the shooter in the murder of Lt. Col. Hughes. Colonel Mustang still isn't convinced that she did it and is still searching for the information his colleague was killed for. Meanwhile, Barry the Chopper, the serial killer whose soul was transplanted into an armored suit similar to Al, busts out of his safehouse where he was being held by Mustang and his crew for his own safety and information. Having a psychotic murderer on the streets is a bad thing. Expect to be left hanging as Volume 9 has a cliffhanger ending.

While the anime of Fullmetal Alchemist has concluded (I still haven't watched the last two volumes), the manga continues to go strong. The manga is the only truly "pure" version of the series because, unlike the anime, it is solely under the control of the original creator, Hiromu Arakawa. She is one of the best manga writer/artists out right now, and she takes this ninth volume to a whole new level in terms of drama, action, and suspense. She really makes you feel the impact on Ed, Al, and Winry as they learn about Hughes' death. While Arakawa portrays the raw emotion, none of the characters become pitiful or disgustingly overemotional. Their feelings play out within the boundaries of their personalities and makes them stronger instead of weaker. Another thing Arakawa is doing right is still having mysteries in her manga, but never to the point that they begin to annoy you. We still haven't gotten much information on the Homunculi or Ed and Al's father at this point, but you feel as though questions such as these will be answered when the time is right. This is one of, if not THE, best manga being published.
