It’s tempting to compare Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, the fifth Blu-ray of which is out on Monday), with an epic fantasy saga about a certain boy wizard.

Alchemist comes from the manga by Hiromu Arakawa, who wrote and drew the nine-year, 27-book manga about two brothers’ journey through an increasingly rich world of steampunk and sorcery.
