A short 13 minutes OVA, but it has everything the initial part of the original FMA that Brotherhood lacked. in other words, its FMA par excellence. It revisits the powerful and profound consequences of human alchemy and playing God. For such a short time, it presented the impact proportional to that of Nina's tragedy.
