This is VERSION 2 of my 10 bit HEVC / x265 reencode of [Shady Crab's](https://nyaa.si/?f=0&c=0_0&q=shadycrab "Shady Crab's uploads") 100.2 gb release of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and its OVA, with all audio encoded to AC3. English audio and signs/song for dub subtitle track are default. This release should now be playable correctly by everyone (my first release, while working totally fine for me, received some comments stating that it would not play correctly on some devices).
Here are some comparison shots of my encode vs [Shady Crab's release](https://nyaa.si/view/932413 "Shady Crab's encode")
Obviously there are some reductions in visual quality compared to the original in all my uploads, these screenshots should help you decide whether the reduction in quality is worth my far lower file sizes.
Keep the file size differences in mind.
Huge thanks to Shady Crab for uploading such a high quality release!
"In order for something to be obtained, something of equal value must be lost."
Alchemy is bound by this Law of Equivalent Exchange—something the young brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric only realize after attempting human transmutation: the one forbidden act of alchemy. They pay a terrible price for their transgression—Edward loses his left leg, Alphonse his physical body. It is only by the desperate sacrifice of Edward's right arm that he is able to affix Alphonse's soul to a suit of armor. Devastated and alone, it is the hope that they would both eventually return to their original bodies that gives Edward the inspiration to obtain metal limbs called "automail" and become a state alchemist, the Fullmetal Alchemist.
Three years of searching later, the brothers seek the Philosopher's Stone, a mythical relic that allows an alchemist to overcome the Law of Equivalent Exchange. Even with military allies Colonel Roy Mustang, Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye, and Lieutenant Colonel Maes Hughes on their side, the brothers find themselves caught up in a nationwide conspiracy that leads them not only to the true nature of the elusive Philosopher's Stone, but their country's murky history as well. In between finding a serial killer and racing against time, Edward and Alphonse must ask themselves if what they are doing will make them human again... or take away their humanity.
