FMA Reread of 2012:

5/5.

Oi. Be still, my Ling/Lan Fan shipping heart!

As the series progresses, there are more shonen-y (i.e. action scenes with bold dramatic lines) panels, but then there's Mei Chang's internal theater, which is totally (and hilariously) shoujo!

And then, as if there's not enough twists, that last panel..!

The extra chapter is just endearing. ( )

In volume 14 the arrogance and greed of several of the main characters lands them all in way over their head. Colonel Mustang has discovered that the entire upper echelons of the military is complicit in the Fuhrer being a homunculus, what he thought was a winning hand turned out to be no where close and when he showed his cards he got his crew taken from him and split up, each sent in a different direction to the far corners of Amestris.

Ed got himself and Lin the prince of Xin swallowed whole by the homunculus Gluttony. The price he paid to free them is one he is still reeling from as it is one he swore he would never allow himself to pay. And, of course the end result was landing right in the middle of the homunculus' lair and face to face with their "father" a being with a face entirely too similar to their own father.

We learn a lot more about the homunculi, how they are formed when human based and when not, how they die, and a great deal about the extent of their powers. Unfortunately I think all of the characters bit off more than they could chew in this volume and the last and are now and will be dealing with the ramifications of that for some time to come. Whether they will recover or not or have to deal with their new limitations and losses remains to be seen. The only positive thing in the whole volume was finally one small light at the end of the tunnel for Ed and Al, but I will let you discover that for yourselves. ( )

"Last night's tome of choice was vol. 14 of Fullmetal Alchemist. Not exactly the loftiest of reading materials, but I've been buying the series since they released it in English and I've been really digging it. I'm far past the point where the anime diverged from the manga, so I really have no idea what's going to happen, which is nice. I hate when manga comes out after the anime based on it - the manga is usually better, but now the surprise is gone.

I vastly prefer the manga version of events to what happens in the anime. I found the anime to be too neat, too circular. Everything seemed to tie together, even things that shouldn't have, things that you could tell weren't supposed to. (I'm mostly thinking of Dante and Rose here.) While the manga does focus on its particular characters and there's a relationship to everything, it still feels open." ( )

And later, when the allure of immortality proves to be too much for Prince Lin of Xin, he lets Greed take over...literally!
