Time for some good ol’ existential crises as we dive into Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, the second adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s hit manga series. Join us as we figure out what a human is, debate whether alchemy is magic or science, and attempt to explain Judith Butler without taking six hours.
Warnings: We say ‘pissed’ once and there’s some brief mentions of Winry’s increasing chest size.
