"do not attempt" xD

this is so absurd, but in a really good way! The only sad thing is that it's so short, you should really make some kind of sequel.

Loved it!

As both a math teacher and a geek, I do apreciate these kind of jokes. I like to tell my students that dividing by zero will make their calculator explode, cause I'm immature like that. I also liked the little infinity symbol that appears at the end on the chalkboard. Although I'd like to add that infinity does not really work as an answer to a division by zero, I'll roll with it.

Overall cute, keep the math jokes alive!

P.S. I thought the voice over was great, true to the actual anime, which elevates this flash over the 'parody' class.

Like the parody

Not so much the initial joke. No, I don't mean the math in place of science one, I mean the "divide by 0" one. Yes it's a popular meme, and yes I understand how it works(0=infinity in division), so it cannot happen, making it the mathematical equal to reviving the dead with alchemy, but it's just overused and it is just math, even in an alternate world where dividing by 0 makes you lose your little brother.
FMA is some weird ass shit...
I will say I liked the animation, I never learned how to... do it well... or really at all, so I know saying "good" or "bad" will be looked over, but I liked how it looked, even with a style different from the actual show.
Hell, I'm just a sucker for parodies, and this one had the same "What the hell am I watching? Is this SCIENCE[math]!?" feeling coming from it. I feel the need to go soak my head in water and pretend I didn't just see what magically dividing by 0 would cause. Love this flash, matches perfectly with the show(except in animation and ridiculous-amounts-of-win voice cast), and frankly, everything is spectacular at 4 in the morning. Bless this with all the power of infinity + 1... So i is a number in their universe's English?

I can't believe I never thought of that...

Nice! Anyone who doesn't like this simply doesn't know what this is from, I'm confident anyone who's seen Fullmetal Alchemist would like this animation, possibly even one of those trolls that thinks of you see even a single good anime show that you're an anime nerd. (but really, everyone re-watches the original Pokemon episodes!) That was the best possible joke anyone could have possibly thought of for the show. Good job!

Mediocre.

This isn't a BAD flash, don't get me wrong. You say in the comments that you will disregard the reviews of those who haven't tried flash, and I have. I know how hard it is, and I would be proud of this piece of work. I'm not sure what it's based on, or any of the back-story. I am merely judging the work.
The voices were okay; good voice acting but bad quality. That is most likely just down to a bad microphone. The expressions were okay, but the hair seemed a bit stiff. The music did fit the piece well, but in time only; the mood didn't REALLY seem to match the music.
My main criticism is that the story is in bits. You have the boys at the blackboard. The boy with the blocks... eating him? Then him with no leg, and then the picture on fire.
This is NOT a bad piece of work, and with only two months of flash experience you could become a great animator. My advice to you is to keep working and watch other peoples work. If you learn to take different things from different works then you can put them together in your own style and improve the overall quality of your work.
Quick note: Please, as a request, do not be so hostile in your comments. It acts like a meeting point to trolls, and will only piss people off. Just ignore people who hate on your work.

If you aren't familiar with the source material I can understand how a lot of this seemed out of place, or just cobbled together strangely

I watch a few flash animations from time to and time, and usually am able to gather some ideas or inspirations on techniques.

I will however, never stop being hostile to those who I feel merit it. We here at BoobMarley do not negotiate with terrorists.
