Overview

In the midst of heated battle, Ed and Prince Lin of Xing are swallowed whole by the homunculus Gluttony. Will they survive the depths of Gluttony's gullet like Jonah inside the whale, or has Al lost his brother for good? And the political power structure of the military may be irreparably shattered when Colonel Mustang confronts Führer President King Bradley with his horrifying suspicion that Bradley is a homunculous!

In unlucky volume 13 various characters together or on their own realize that in their arrogance, their hubris, they have done something that has unveiled to them just how unprepared they are and just how far in to really serious trouble they have gotten. The brothers along with the Prince of Xing attempt to capture and take down a homunculus only to seriously underestimate the depth of their power and the extent to which they have already gone to get what they want. Colonel Mustang also attempts to confront the military about the secret he has about King Bradley only to realize that the corruption and power Bradley has brought to bear is far more sinister than he ever could have imagined. And when May and Scar attempt to find her panda it is to discover the root of what feels so wrong with this country as their journey leads them to some horrific discoveries of what truly lies beneath Central.Even though this is by far one of the most dark and terrifying volumes (for the implications given alone, let along everything else) in the series Arakawa still manages to balance it with brief moments of lightness, even if the only ones laughing are the readers themselves. Ed's hot temper and over emotional moments continue to be hilariously drawn, and of course May's moments when she is free to give her version of events are very funny to read about as she elevates Al to level of monster and Ed is the "small pet" behind him.The entire tone of the series is changing as everyone is coming to the realization that things run far deeper and are far more sinister and evil than they could have imagined. Everyone begins to deal with the fallout as they realize just how powerless they are in this situation. Though just how deep things go and just what the homunculuses and their father are up to has yet to be revealed.

Things go from weird to even more weird as Lin, Ed and even a certain shape shifter, find themselves someplace. That place which happens to be Gluttony's stomach...wait what? Like I said, this was just weird. And of course we see the true form of Envy and I was like whoa, how will Ed and Lin fight against Envy now? The story gets more and more interesting that makes you think something's going to happen, but what?

As a huge fan of shojou manga (and being a girl), I was skeptical about this series at first. Almost all shonen manga I had seen up til then were things like DBZ, which I despise. Then, by about the second volume, I was sucked in. Now, eleven volumes later, I'm still captivated! This one adds a few very important pieces to the puzzle. Bradley (or rather, his supporters), Envy, and Al all have important facts about them revealed as Bradley delivers a heavy blow to Colonel Mustang. I have read translations of future chapters, and many of the problems introduced still have not been solved, and are, in fact, getting worse. I'm going to hang on to this one, though. It's just too good to pass up! If you're patient and love a good (manga) read, check it out!
