Today, I finished watching the last few episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist that were on my TiVo. I’ve been working my way through the 51 episodes of the series on and off through most of this year. It was, apparently, a hugely popular series in Japan. It’s definitely worth watching, if you’ve got the time to sit through all 51 episodes. It’s got a lot of light moments, but also a lot of heavy ones. It’s got complex characters and complex themes. The ending is satisfying, but it doesn’t tie things up in a neat bow; it leaves you with a lot to think about.
