Action Level: 4/5
The use of alchemy in battles (such as forming blades and shooting energy blasts) was
very sweet. True it made the sereis seem like an overgrown fantasy novel but hey who doesn't love that?
Romance Level: 2/5
There are a few relationships between minor characters. It seems that Winry is
rather "affectionate" towards Edward. But seeing as how Al doesn't have a body with which to... ahem... well...
it's not like she has a whole lot of choices.
Comedy Level: 3/5
The running gags about Al being the Fullmetal Alchemist and about Ed's height get old
after the tenth episode. Even though he is short, he's still muscular than other kids his age. And speaking of
muscular, that muscle-bound guy in the Military is so stupid it's hilarious.
Adult Level: 3/5
They show lots of intense fights and bloodshed but nothing too bad. Pretty on par
for a FUNimation anime.
Drama Level: 3/5
They go into the whole "who is human" question. Do some dabble on religion vs. science.
I think they could've gone into that some more.
Overall Level: 3/5
Well-scripted with lots of visuals and interesting characters.
