  • Good Overview
    From Amazon

    This is the profile book for the ANIME only (as the title proves). There is a profile book for the manga characters in existance as well so if that what you want you're at the wrong place. That said the book provides a good overview of the entire anime series. The information does allow fans of the series to recall some facts and details that may be only be recalled by actually watching the series. However, most of the facts presented fans would already know such as how Ed and Al are related to one another (their brothers). Yes, there are flaws perhaps the most grevious is the misprint about the length of Greed's captivity. Still they do not detract from the overall profile for each character. However, the pages also contain sections on each character that is fun. For instance in Ed's profile it presents his dislikes (milk) and some quotes from his comebacks to short comments or in Mustang's profile it presents a recap of his "work" day. The entire book is printed on full color pages with tons of pictures for each character - even if some of them are quite small. The major characters each have roughly 3 to 4 pages (such as Ed, Al, Winry, Mustang) while "less" main characters have about 1 to 2 pages (Riza, Armstrong). There are also profiles on very minor characters such as Clause which share space with other minor characters (about four characters to a two page spread). Lastly, there is a diagram in the back locating the appearance of each and every character (no matter how minor) in accordance to the episode. A good example here would be the fact that you can see that Ed and Al appeared in every episode except for episode 37 with Wherehouse 13. Overall, some information may be obvious to the dedicated fan, but still is interesting to read. The facial experessions alone from Ed made me want the book espeically since it is in color. If you are a fan of the series you'd probably want this book - I just wouldn't be in a rush to buy it.

  • FMA Anime Profiles
    From Amazon

    My son who is 14 and loves anime, loved the book and read it in one day.

  • Perfect for lovers of the anime!
    From Amazon

    I purchased this book when I first saw it had come out in stores. I instantly fell in love with it. It's the perfect guide for fans who love the Fullmetal Alchemist anime. It has complete lists of everyone's favorite characters, including minor ones that only appear once during the series. However, I have noticed that the editing is done poorly. There are several common errors that should have been easily fixed. An example is where they used "ane" instead of "and". Some of the character spellings are questionable, as well as the information. (ex. In the anime, Greed says he was imprisoned for 130 years, but this book says it was 140.) Apart from these, I absolutely loved the book, especially the episode guide it includes. I would highly recommend purchasing this.
