"There are many anime franchises which have seen high levels of popularity in Japan as well as in North America. One such anime franchise received not only one, but two anime adaptations that have since concluded. The franchise I’m speaking of is Fullmetal Alchemist, which received an anime adaptation early in its publication and another adaptation called Brotherhood that not only stayed truer to the source material, but told the entire Fullmetal Alchemist story from beginning to end.
However who says that a good franchise has to end once the final chapter/episode is released? Though a few OVAs have been made since the anime ended and will be released soon by FUNimation, another new release is gracing the anime world, a full length movie called Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: The Sacred Star of Milos. Will this side-journey of the Elric brothers be one to remember?"
