Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 25: 03/09/15
Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 25 by Hiromu Arakawa is the continuation of the fight started in Volume 24. If you read manga for the battles, you will love this issue. If you prefer humor and character development, this one is a disappointment in another wise strong series.
In and amongst the battle with the unstoppable and incredibly arrogant King Bradley (Wrath) and the Armstrongs being forced to fight together, there are two updates to the plot of note: Al is given a chance to return to his body and Mustang being forced to stand in for a missing sacrifice.
But mostly though the book is pages and pages of fights. Some long time characters pay the ultimate price. There's a lot of swooping sorts and massive transformations through alchemy. I found it all too much and improbable.
