IGN: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Part One DVD Review

IGN: "Everything old is new again," goes the saying. What's a good way to adapt it in this case? "Everything five or six years old is new too"?

Fullmetal Alchemist sets a weird kind of record here, going from "make" to "remake" in the space of about half a decade. There's not much else in Japanese cartoon history that comes close. Even Gainax waited almost twice as long to cash in and bring out a remade Evangelion. Is the animation industry that short of ideas these days? Would it be too depressing to contemplate an honest answer to that question?

The story is too old to be commented.
