I'd heard alot of great things about this anime online and from friends, but
being a series based on a shounen (boys) manga I was a little hesitant to check
it out. I saw it online at GP Store priced ridiculously well (compared to the
same pack in the US) and thought “What the heck”…
I'm glad I did. From the opening scenes I was completely hooked. The
storyline is so intriguing, the characters are so likeable that I've sat and
watched the DVD three times already. There's action, intrigue, and humour.
I especially like the full colour booklet insert included with an introduction
by the director, profiles of Ed and Al, and pictures of the towns and other
The tin collectors box got many “oohs” and “aahs” at the office, and
looks as though it should easily fit the first 5 DVDs in OK. The colour art on
the tin is exceptional and it makes a really nice collectors piece!
The soundtrack features the opening and closing theme plus alot of
instrumental tracks from the anime and I like the way they have kept the
Japanese text in the booklet insert. A very nice touch.
Overall I recommend picking this series up to anyone. Even girls like myself
LOL, you will not be disappointed!
