The remake of Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Full Metal Alchemist, long anticipated, has just aired, and predictably has been greeted with great interest and enthusiasm.

This episode begins in medias res, apparently intended more to introduce the many charismatic characters the series possesses. The next episode is set to begin with the disastrous hubris which doomed the brothers Elric.

The response seems extremely positive, although this summary episode is quite removed from the epic story expected.

Fans still speculate as to the precise timing of the anime versus the manga, though it seems fairly certain the manga and anime will follow into the same conclusion this time.
