Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 19: 12/04/12
Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 19 by Hiromu Arakawa forces new alliances and puts the characters in new dangers. As the endgame is nigh, these dangers will only increase.
Ed goes against Kimblee's men and nearly loses his life in the process. He also though earns their respect in the process. The opposition isn't as cut and dry as humans vs. non humans and more and more of these unconventional alliances will be made as everyone scrambles to stop Father and his family of homunculi.
My favorite piece of the book though was the figuring out of the brother's notes. Scar has been carrying his brother's notes from the very beginning of the series. Through all these unusual alliances, Scar manages to put together a team able to understand the importance of his brother's research.
