Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 18 (Fullmetal Alchemist #18)

Hooooly crap. Another Homunculos: Pride. And not at all who I would have expected! Crazy chimera fight (those are still a thing, remember?) and a bit more development and growth from May.

Onwards!

Chapter 70: The First Homunculus

18-070-1-LOVE

So LUVY.

18-070-2-LOVE-cont

It’s cute. I wonder if that will be resolved in this series. Things seem to be moving too fast / they’re a bit young for that. But they’ve been through a lot.

18-070-3-PRIDE-and-joy

PRIDE and joy eh? I caught that reading through, but I was totally joking… and then a page or two later…

Chapter 71: In the Grip of the Red Lotus

18-071-1-Heh-Sexism

It’s funny because acknowledge sexism? Flipping to an absolute badass just to gain the respect of those around you as a woman is still sexism.

Chapter 72: A Chain of Negativity, A Pebble of Goodness

18-072-1-SPIT-FIGHT

SPIT FIGHT GO!

18-072-2-SHTICK

IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE HE’S METAL!

These chapters with big fight scenes are crazy fun. I want to watch the series (plural) again.

Chapter 73: A Daydream

18-073-1-24-hours-she-cares

Aw. Major General Armstrong is a hardass and all about survival of the fittest on paper. But she truly cares about her people. I liked this scene.

18-073-2-May-grows

How old is May supposed to be? All this way to save her people–and coming to the realization that it may not be worth the cost. That’s a lesson some never do learn.
