Well first Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans. Hope you are enjoying this Independence Day.
Well it’s day 3 of my Fullmetal Alchemist Week. Today I wanted to share my top 5 fav characters from the Brotherhood series. This was probably one of the hardest decisions ever because I like so many characters from the series. There were sooooo many good ones. But I was able to do it. Check it out!!! 😄
Well how can you not love Edward. He is the epitome of what a lead character should be. He had me rooting for him through the whole series. The passion he had to help get his brother’s body back was intense and so loving to see. I loved when he used his alchemy in fights. He was so cool. He is also awesome because he is the youngest person to become a state alchemist. Plus he didn’t need to create a alchemy circle to use his alchemy like other alchemist. He was just all around awesome. Even though he was short haha he was no joke to mess with.
As I always say, “I LOVE VILLAINS”. Envy was just the bad person I needed in this series. All the Homunculus were pretty vicious but envy did some really gruesome deeds. He killed a little kid that caused an all out war. He killed Mae Hughes (crying to myself) and so many more. What was crazy about his character is his shape-shifting abilities. He changed into other identities and fooled so many people. Envy is what I think all villains should be, no regret or remorse and unforgivable.
I liked Lust a lot because she was such a smooth and sexy character but was so sadistic and merciless. She was the leader in a lot of the evil plot twists in this series. I know she was following Father’s plan but she made it happen. She was so quick to kill anyone who tried to interfere with their plan. Everything about her was just so great.
How can you not love Mae?? I had a hard time deciding between him and Colonel Roy as my favorite but Mae came out on top. He was hilarious, loving and just an all around great character. He was always there to help any and everyone. He was so hilarious because he would brag about his family every chance he could get. It was just too funny. (SPOILER) of course when he was killed I died, like I literally died because I did not see that coming. Ughhh R.I.P. ☹️
I really enjoyed watching Izumi’s character. She was a tough chick that can totally kick ass. I loved that even though she was super tough she had a vulnerability. After losing her kid and trying to perform human transmutation which was unsuccessful she had her sad and emotional moments. But in no way did they make her seem weak which I loved. I also liked how she was so hard on Edward and Al. She didn’t take shit. Hahah she always knocked Edward out. But overall such a great character.
So, those are my top 5. Some honorable mentions are Colonel Roy Mustang, Alex Louis Armstrong, Wrath, Greed/Ling, and Pride.
Check out my post tomorrow on my top 5 least Favorite characters.
