The more this series goes on the more complex it gets, in a very good way. Volume 6 continues the flashback from volume 5 covering the history of the boys and how they learned alchemy. The training was almost unbelievable to read about. I could not understand why some of the unspeakable and terrifying things even happened to them in the first place. This was true in the anime as well. But it really sets the tone for just how brutal and dark the rest of the series gets as things progress. They need to be toughened up in their training for what comes after and I understand that more now. But, the first time I read it? I could barely stomach it.The rest of the volume doesn¿t lighten up much either as you see the rest of what you caught a glimpse of in the very first frame of the very first volume (finally!) and get a lot of questions answered. But not all, of course. I really enjoyed having all the blanks filled in concerning the history of the brothers and how they got to where they are. I also enjoyed having some more of the tenets of alchemy spelled out for us and more of a foundation set up so that we can better understand the limitations, and what happens when an alchemist tries to play god (an ongoing theme). After all the humble pie from volume 5, volume 6 goes straight for your gut. Those poor, poor boys.

Details the origins of how the Elric brothers learned Alchemy from their teacher Izumi. Ed and Al were adorable when they were kids.

This is one of the best volumes ever! This is the coolest orgin of a manga character(s) ever. Their teacher Izumi Curtis is a great character, and gets even better as the series goes on. Just buy it and don't look back.

when I first read this manga book, I kinda cheated by not reading the fifth book first. Do not read this book unless you at least read the fifth book in the series, because if you don't read it, then you won't get the full enjoyment out of it. I say this because when I read it, the book was really confusing, but still intimately hilarious!

I love Fma! I wouldnt be writing this review if I didnt!?! I was kinda mad that Envy wasnt in it but it was still awsome! In one of the extras in Volume 7 or 8 it goes back to 'The Truth' taking things, and it steals Ed's Boxers...LOL! This is one of da best mangas EVER!!!

I have read trhough ch. 56 of FMA online, and I was so happy to finally have vol. 6 in my possession, because it's getting close to where the story starts picking up! While there's not a lot of new development, it leads into the next part of the story, where it gets really interesting! Plus, there's a lot of new insight into the Elric brothers' past. One of my favorite volumes in the series, I must say!
