The opening and ending can only be described as exceptional. Those who actually read this know that I love Fullmetal Alchemist. I have loved the first anime series, and I am currently OBSESSED with Brotherhood and the manga. While the first anime series was great, Brotherhood and the manga both have a plot on a larger scale, with all the character being given more depth. While I do feel that some of the homunculus are given less depth(Lust, Envy and Sloth), the amount of depth other characters are given make this easily forgivable.
