Storyline

Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist, is on the other side of the gate. He has befriended someone who resembles his brother, Al, and has met a gypsy resembling Rose. He finds out that the Germans are planning on opening the gate, and attack the other side, which is Ed and Al's home. Although Al has learned a lot, he cannot stop all of them, and Ed cannot use Alchemy while in the other side. Ed tries to stop them, and Al just tries to be able to talk to his brother again, who everyone else thinks is gone. Written by Fluffy Love Muffin

Trivia

Furher King Bradley also has an alternative character on earth. He first tells Ed that his name is Mabuse and that he is a filmmaker, but later on Ed finds out that his real name is Fritz Lang. Fritz Lang was actually a real Austrian film maker ( life: 1890-1976). Though he was a Jew in the movie, in real life his mother was Jewish but converted to roman Catholicism. The name Mabuse comes from the character Dr.Mabuse from one of Lang's films called "Dr.Mabuse,the gambler". See more »

Pretty decent
25 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now I won't spoil anything for anyone, only that "FMA - Conqueror of Shambala" is worth looking into. Thankfully the characters are pretty much the same. Anyway, it starts off with Ed and Al visiting this one scientist who has discovered Uranium (kinda sub-plot) and he ends up on the other side of the gate. The rest of the story picks up were the series left off; and takes place both our world and Ed's world. The overall plot was fairly good and and the director and writers did good job paying respect for the characters and the series. And the animation out does the actual show, there were some instances were they used CG (and looked bad) but that doesn't ruin the viewing qualities at all. I liked it, but don't take my word for it. Try it for yourself and be your own judge. I like said, it's worth taking a peek.^_^
