it does put an end to the story and it feel a lot better than how the series ended. but there are just too many things happening in so little time it doesn't feel as natural. two very important characters die but it didn't break my heart like it should.
in the end the Elric brothers decide to live on beyond the gate in our world, a weird decision if you ask me because they obviously cared a lot for their friends yet chose to leave them behind and start a new life in a new world.
i just loved this anime, it blew my mind. and even though this movie is not a perfect ten it's definitely worth watching.
