For fans of the manga, this is basically the extras at the end, just animated. Its randomness, its hilarity and its truly amazing drawings are all very similar. I would still say I prefer the ones in the manga, but then again, I consider those perfection and these just a bit below - so pretty good then.

For those who haven't read the manga: First of all - WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! READ THE MANGA!

In essence, these are short skits that mock/improve upon events that happened in the anime by making them utterly ridiculous, or take a concept from it and make it completely random and hilarious. Basically, they are awesome.

If you love FMA, I cannot recommend these enough. Although, actually watch it before you watch these. Most of these are inside jokes, and those that aren't are a hundred times funnier when you've seen the anime.

I never really got into this silly 2D art style of anime. The Gag genre is also usually kind of annoying to me.

However, I loved Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and I foolishly assumed that I would be able to enjoy this “Koma theater” special- despite it being of the style and genre that I typically avoid.

Surprise surprise, this turned out to be “hot garbage.” Corny, over-the-top, childish, and somehow boring.

A 1/10 overall. One of the worst comedy animes I’ve seen. It almost chips at the reputation of the creators.
