"The Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OVA Collection does provide a solid addition to the the series in terms of character development and backstory, though it is kind of hard pressed in terms of actual content. Only 4 OVA episodes, with the only special features being the Fullmetal Four-Panel Comic Theater, there isn’t an over abundance of bang for the buck, but it does equate to about the length of a movie, so the price of a movie certainly fits. The music is good, the voice overs are solid, and the visuals deliver what one expects from the series. While there isn’t much content it is understandable what with all the other releases probably getting the major focus in terms of that, so content is solid enough."
