Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Part Five

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Part Five is a two-disc set that contains the final 12 episodes (episodes 53 through 64) of the series. These final episodes are filled with many revelations, plot twists and turns that leave the viewer sitting on the edge of their seat waiting to find out what happens next. I have to admit that I was a little worried about the story being stretched out and slowing down in order to cover twelve episodes. However, I'm happy to say that all 12 episodes were needed to finish the story, and there's not a boring moment in this set.

On the main menu of the discs, you can choose to watch all of the episodes, choose which episode you want to see, set your audio and subtitle preference, and see the extras. When it comes to choosing episodes, you can't choose where in the episode you want to begin watching. When you select an episode, it takes you straight to the beginning of the episode. In the setup menu, you can choose between English 5.1 Surround and Japanese Stereo for the audio. You can also choose whether to have the subtitles on or off.

There are no bonus features included on the first disc of this set. However, there are six extras included on the second disc. The first extra is a commentary for episode 64 ("Journey's End"). The next feature is labeled as "Outtakes." This feature opens with an introduction from the ADR director for the English dub, and he explains that this feature is comprised of actual dubbing errors and some humor from when the cast was goofing off in the studio. He also gives a warning that there is some "adult language" included in this feature, which ends up running for about seven-and-a-half minutes. Personally, I found this feature to be rather amusing.

Next is "Textless Opening Song," which is a textless version of the opening credits that appears on this set. Next is "Textless Closing Song," which is a textless version of the main ending credits that appears on this set. There is also "Textless Closing Song #2," which is a textless version of the ending credits that appear at the end of the final episode of the series. The final extra on the disc is trailers. The trailers on this disc are for: Noir, Yu Yu Hakusho, Spice and Wolf, Dragon Ball Z Kai, Fruits Basket, Rideback, One Piece, and FUNimation.com.

I overall found this to be a satisfying ending for the series, and I would recommend this release to anyone who is a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

I wrote a review of this DVD set after checking out a copy through the King County Library System.
