Fullmetal Alchemist – The Sacred Star of Milos is an animated move adapted from the manga and the “second anime“. It’s the second film based of the series. Basically the Elric brothers find themselves in conundrum. After they have a brief altercation with an escaped convict named Melvin Voyager the brothers pursue him. Heading towards “Table City” the brothers are further accosted by a “Chimera” and a terrorist group called “Black Bats”. The brothers meet  Julia Crichton, a 16-year-old girl that was arrested then rescued by Melvin and the Black Bats. Confusion ensues, Julia turns out to be a Milosian in search of a way to save her people. The power she seeks is the “Sanguine Star”, Ed and Al quickly realize that she’s referring to a philosopher stone. Set on preventing blood shed the decided to help. Overall I loved the movie, the story itself while interesting wasn’t partially epic. However, that’s not always necessary. The animation was without a doubt spectacular. If there’s any downside it’s the fact Col. Mustang, Hawkeye and Armstrong were absent even though they had appeared briefly in the movie.
