I picked up my copy yesterday from a local anime store, and it turned out to be a defect. It was suffering from pretty bad disc seperation, which is what you have when the bottom of the disc looks milky. The two layers were seperating and mine crapped out at the end of episode 14. So I returned it and have a replacement on order, hopefully that will be in for next week.

At least I got to have a laugh at Envy's english voice. Very cool sounding.

yeah i forgot how strange Envy's voice is, i had watched the second season online and had gotten used to the jap version. i remembered why i had trouble figuring out his gender, the us voice is very feminine.

i'm really surprised about all the defects people been getting. maybe their have been some bootlegs out there... but i guess that's the problem with dvds in general.

i loved it when gran got killed. i don't think anybody was sad about that.

gotta love the dvd extras... especially ready, steady, go!

i'm surprised why adultswim gets away with cutting the closing credits short. i think the best ending is this one as well.

the best opening credits is the one for the last episodes. it rocks.

yeah, but all my other 3 fullmetal alchemist dvds had no problem in the past and don't have any problems now, just the 4th volume...

No, it happened to me too! I tried two copies, both had the same problem (first two episodes didn't work). So I just today bought it again from a different store. Haven't tried it yet, but I have my fingers crossed.

Of course, my DVD player is my older PS2. I thought it might just be me/my player until I read your posts here.

Don't rule out the possibility of it being a problem with the PS2. I have DVD's that work great on my Normal DVD, but have serious issues with them on my PS2.

Nah, my case was DVD seperation plain and simple. I used to work in a video store, I've seen it a dozen times before. It would have failed in just about any player. It's nothing serious, Funimation or whoever does the DVDs will just replace the busted ones I'm sure.

LIKE OMGZZZZ SPRIAL SUCKS! It's an anime that we got on Vol4 of Fullmetal. Seems like Funi decided to throw in some crappy show with the extras. but i skipped most of it because it was boring and watched the Ready,Steady,Go! music video instead.

yeah i couldn't watch spiral for more than 2 minutes, i had no idea what was going. in fact i didn't get past the girl falling out of the sky.

is that a common theme in Asian stories? I've seen that in a final fantasy game and in crouching tiger...

i dunno, seems kind of strange to me.

The Intro and Ending of Spiral is off beat and horrible too. but back to Fullmetal Vol 4. Episodes i had never saw the second ending because of craptoon network always cutting it,but when i finally saw it on the dvd....my god.....it's such an awesome song. it's my favorite anime ending and favorite fullmetal ending right now.

what i really like about that ending is the shot of the snowflakes falling on ed's hands. for some reason that struck me. cool doesn't describe it properly (and is a bad pun).

it was just really awesome to see the snowflakes melt in his real hand and stay frozen in his automail.

real ingenius. it's that kind of stuff that make FMA such an awesome show.

the opening credits for season two have that kind of clips, really stunning and exciting.

Love the DVD's, wish they had more extras.

The alternate episode previews on this volume are hilarious.

Love the L~Arc music video, wish we got more stuff like that on the DVD.

What I really want is interviews from the English voice actors and audio commentary.

for all the "purists" out there, i was glad to see that the american dvds actually have the original japanese voices and official subbing. it's a fun thing to compair the american dialogue vs. the japanese.

This is NOT uncommon practice for anime releases on DVD, its pretty much the norm. Especially for Funimation.
