I liked it.....but

Ed also lost an arm in the anime.

"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.

People find this review helpful!

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!
