The cast of Fullmetal Alchemist aren’t always as serious as they appear to be; even they need to have fun from time to time. Whether Hawkeye manages to find a novel method for defeating the “Invincible Elric Brothers”, or Bradley decides to further humiliate his defeated foes, everyone has their own quirky ways of winding down. However, not all things change as no matter where he is, Hughes will always fawn over his beloved family and foist photos upon anyone nearby – even if it means holding up the show!

Critic’s Log - October 3, 2015. Supplemental Review of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD Well… I went over Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and it’s OVA’s and it turns out I got another thing to talk about before I go over a certain anime movie. I am referring to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Comic Theater I have no reason to give a synopsis about this one because this whole entire thing is a self-aware parody of the series. This anime is inspired by the manga omakes that were at the end of a volume of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga. Interestingly enough, 99% of the segments are parodies of some of the events that took place in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. The first segment is the only one that was based on the manga omakes (extras). Also, it should be made clear that the Comic Theater is not meant to be part of the series canon. It is a parody of the series after all. There is no need for me to go over too much on the animation but I must say that I do appreciate the change of character design to make the self-awareness obvious. There is no need for me to bring up the soundtrack or the characters. Hell, there is no need for me to bring up the plot. I do have one last thing to say… This Comic Theater parody is worth the time for bonus material. Some of the segments are funny as hell. I would like to add that The Japanese cast is alright but how the English Dub handled some of the dialogue made me laugh my ass off. I recommend that you watch this Comic Theater after watching the entire series of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood because they are parodies of key moments so… keep that in mind. I had some good laughs. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Comic Theater is available by Funimation through the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection. Overall, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Comic Theater is a hilarious addition to one of the best modern animes out there. It is self-aware of what it does and even though some segments don’t really work. Most of it is guaranteed to give you some laughs. I give Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Comic Theater a 9.6 out of 10. Feel free to leave a comment.
