My 5 Favorite Full Metal Alchemist Characters

So i recently completed watching FMA:Brotherhood, i know it is really late but i finally finished watching it. Actually i flipped a coin one side being Monster and other FMA & the result was Monster so i watched it first and took a break from Anime overall and now i have returned to watch more masterpieces. I am not really fond of any new anime other then these slice of comedy and light hearted anime which are just 12 episode long. Actually if there is a new anime which is really worth watching do tell me.

I am not gonna review FMA because it is straight up good and has been reviewed over a thousand time and is sitting on top of the “all time best anime list” on  myanimelist.

This post might contain Spoilers.

 

5.  Greed (ling Yao)

Now i am gonna be honest here, the first greed that i saw acted like a asshole but even the first greed had a good side to him which i guess stays consistent. Out of all the homunculus he is the only nice guy(well he is bad but not as bad as others).                 The second greed(ling yao) just wanted friends, that is not a sign of a bad person.

4. Scar

I know scar tried to kill the brothers but he was filled with rage and wanted justice for his people. I just like him he is the villain who has turned into a good person(Cough*Saiyan prince*Cough).

3. Roy Mustang

He is a total badass uses fire and is a respectable commander. He also burned down a homunculus. He is just the character that everyone likes.

2. Envy(inner envy)

I hate him but, the actual envy who committed suicide actually left me a bit teary eyed. It was satisfying see him die but the way it happened was quite sad. That makes me think, he is the most saddest homunculus he was always envious of humans. I know he killed Hughes but there is something about him that just doesn’t let me forget him.

i actually like this Envy(true form)

1. King Bradley

He is my personal favorite. He wields two sword and is to strong even in his almost old age, he is not a homunculus technically, he is like mostly human with an special eye which is the only thing that suggests that he is a homunculus. Well he was trained for that purpose so he is on their side. That last fight was actually amazing.

P.S.

I know this list does not have Edward and Alphonse i like them and all but these are the characters that i feel really stood out …

Welcome to the NHK! Full Impression and review.

So you thought that a life of a Neet or  hikikomori is trouble free and nice, well you will have a huge change of opinions after watching this anime!

Trailer:

(This trailer contains a tiny bit of spoilers)

 

The story and character in brief:

The anime starts of with  Tatsuhiro Satou (MC) sitting in his room in a dreamy state and believing  that his hikikomori state is because of a big conspiracy. He has been a NEET for 4 years now after he just stopped going to college because he thought that the his classmates were laughing at him and were making fun of him(they were actually not,it is just in his head).

 

Story (10/10)

This anime is unique,complex and bitter truth about the real world. The story is a bit slow paced and because being slow it actually explains the plot beautifully. The story is deep and really makes you question are you actually satisfied with your life? The anime touches sensitive areas like depression, emotional roller-coasters, suicidal thoughts etc. Not many anime have touched those areas so deeply. The start is pretty funny, but once you the story progresses it gets more mature and everything starts making sense. Now for the romantic factor, this anime has no lovey dovey romance like you would find in other anime, but has a  more of a realistic approach. This anime shows the reality of the world we are living in and to be honest it is not that good. My point is that the story is awesome and satisfying.

Soundtrack and music (9/10)

The music used in the anime is real good starting from the Opening and ending to all other soundtracks used during the dramatic scenes and such. Great song choice. The music is fitting to the events in the anime.

Character (10/10)

The Character development in the anime is on point. Each character has a purpose. Every character grows, fails, learns, and maximizes their potential as a solid character. There is no such thing as a “weak character” in this anime. It’s actually unbelievable how well written, well developed and well exposed every character is and how that justifies their existence. Not a single character feels extraneous or even annoying.

Art (10/10)

The artwork itself is not the best but it is the most fitting for an anime which has so many emotions and feels to it. Well the anime was aired in 2006( probably made in 2005) which is almost 11 years back.

Overall (10/10)

You just have to watch this anime it is brilliant, well you can take your time and i do not recommend binge watching it. That depends on the viewer, but it is a must watch anime and should be watched by anime fans and non anime fans too. I personally feel it is on the same level as Toradora, Lovely Complex, Kimi ni Todoke etc. but it is too underrated.
