鋼の錬金術師 嘆きの丘(ミロス)の聖なる星 (Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) (Blu-ray release 2012-2-8) is the second movie in the Fullmetal Alchemist anime series.  Its story toke place before the end of the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood / FA.

Although it feels like an extended episode, the movie budget allows it to be beautiful, magnificent and exciting.  The story is good and at the same time coherent with the overall TV series. It has excellent pacing too.  It also integrates a brief background of the lead characters into the story seamlessly, so people who have not watched the TV series or manga can enjoy this movie.  Every single element that makes the world of Fullmetal Alchemist interesting is in this movie.  It is almost perfect, and is far better than the first movie.  I just don’t like the appearance changes of the lead characters.
