Editorial Review:

Product Description:
The Elric brothers have fallen once more under the care (and the stern eye) of the one who taught them the art of Alchemy – The formidable Izumi. But as a new player emerges from the jungle, it seems as if everyone has plans of their own for this mysterious young boy. Disgusted with the reckless pursuit of their goal, Izumi sends her former students away…

As both good intentions and the best laid plans go astray, the Elrics are soon separated by kidnappers and Ed must face the homunculus Greed alone. Must death be the only path to reunion? With reinforcements seeking to help the two brothers, they are soon on the path to Ishbal once more. Between the flood of new questions and the trickling flow of answers, this site of the mysterious war looks to be their only source for truth. But as the journey to the ruins and their guide reveal a dark series of events, will Ed and Al be ready for what they find? Or will they be forced to question everything they believe?
The first episodes of the second season of Fullmetal Alchemist focus on the origins of the Homunculi. Izumi reveals that when Edward and Alphonse attempted to bring their mother back from the dead, they disturbed the order of the universe more profoundly than they could imagine. Ed remembers confronting a mysterious Gate that seemed to guard the path to all knowledge. The artists based the design on Rodin's Gates of Hell, and its swirling human forms lend an appropriately grim power to the visuals. A new Wrath appears at the same time Greed has been freed from decades of confinement. When Ed fights Greed, he discovers that the Homunculi have weaknesses and can be destroyed under the right conditions. The fallen city of Ishbal remains at the center of the search for the Philosopher's Stone. Sheska's research into the death of Gen. Hughes suggests a link to Ishbalan war and the mysterious Col. Juliet Douglas who supposedly triggered it. Ed and Al reach the ruins of Ishbal and learn the true story of its destruction before Cols. Mustang and Kimbley arrive with an army. In nearby Liore, Ed finds himself caught between a monstrous plot hatched by Scar, Lust, and Gluttony, and the sinister plans of the Scarlet Alchemist, Lt. Col. Frank Archer, and their military superiors. Many series falter and grow repetitious in their second season; Fullmetal Alchemist only gets better. As the saga of the Elric Brothers unfolds, director Seiji Mizushima deftly blends powerful emotional drama, physical action and broad comedy into an unusually engaging adventure-fantasy. (Rated TV PG: violence, grotesque imagery, tobacco and alcohol use, nudity) --Charles Solomon
