The above image to me is both surreal and nostalgic. It could have come from an episode of the first series, but in fact its right out of FMA Brotherhood.
Its just so strange seeing the same events unfold, but just not quite the same way they did before.
The brothers attempt to resurrect their mother was just as profound and dramatic this time as it was the first time around. This second series seems to blend humor and drama just as well as the first ever did.
The scenes prior to the resurrection attempt were really cute and it was a big treat to see little Ed, Al and Winry as little kids and because they were so cute and so touching, it really made the brothers failed attempt at human transmutation all the more shocking, even though we’ve seen it happen before.
It really is amazing how many different ways the source material can be interpreted. Sometimes when it happens the result isn’t always so great, but in this case I think its going to work out.
Next week the brothers will finally get to Lior! 🙂
