After finishing Brotherhood for the first time, I was definitely amazed. It was a series that has stayed with me because of how powerful it was. I can also say the same thing about the original series as well, but another small thing that elevated brotherhood over the original, at least for me, were these final lines at the end of brotherhood.
Part of it is, of course, the lines themselves, which of course represents many of the ordeals the Elric brothers have gone through, whether it be trying to revive there mother, searching for the Philosopher’s Stone, or fighting against father and the Homunculi. Then, at the end of the show, Ed makes the ultimate sacrafice, giving up his ability to perform alchemy in order to finally get his brother’s body back, finally completing the mission he has wanted to ever since that day back in Resembool. All of this makes the lines themselves hit with a lot of emotional impact.
The other part of it though is the way in which Vic Mignogna delivers the lines. He portrays Eds character being not only calm, but satisfied with the way things are, and ready to deal with the rest of his life. In the final scene, Ed has not only dealt with the problems he’s faced, but has also learned from them, completing a journey of self-discovery.
