This is my all-time favorite AMV. Short, yet tons of fun to watch. The effects are brilliant, and not in any way overdone. To top it off, the music used is from Gravitation - all Hagaren fans should check this out.
Another fun, up-beat action video. Although a lot of footage from the opening and ending themes are used, the visual effects combined with the dance/techno music (put together with perfect action-sync) make this FMA vid the one you'll want to watch over and over again.
This is your best source for FMA drama. Very unique song choice, and the effects are extremely well done. And although this is a drama vid, the scenes flow very quickly - you'll see something new every time you watch it.
I absolutely adore this video - most of the effects are rather simple, but the message that's conveyed is very touching and depressing at the same time. The quality of the video is excellent considering it was made with fansubs, and although it isn't really "action-synched", it follows the lyrics perfectly. As stated in the video description: "This isn't a fast paced fast cute video it's more typical in nature but with an artistic side to it."
There are quite a few AMVs that combine FMA with Hoobastank, but this one is definitely one of the best. Excellent lyric/action sync put together with original effects makes this one of the top FMA vids here.
Well,this has been quite a surprise. Just yesterday I was thinking of posting in Site Feedback in order to ask for a topic of FMA recommended AMVS.And today,the topic is ready without me doing nothing...
Concerning to what inverse said,I totally agree with the first four mvs recommended.I have downloaded them over 3 months ago and they were magnificent. About the last one,I'm gonna download it for sure.It even has my favorite song from Hoobastank(Crawling In The Dark).How did I miss it?
Now,I would like also to recommend some other FMA mvs even though *inverse* mentioned the best FMA mvs.
1)Alchemist's War by shippochan - its only drawback is the quality.But everything else is way above good,especially synch,editing(fades from black rules over there) and the song used(Nightwish rules!!).It doesn't have much of a concept though.But it's very good as a starting point in order to enter FMA world...
2)Alchemist's Trade by kiarrens - ok,first of all,<Somewhere> as a song matches the personality of Edward perfectly.Generally,a very good use of effects(the use,not the effects specially) and a good synch also.
3)Lost Soul by *inverse* - One of the best character profile music videos ever made.Alphonse Elric is given an excellent tribute that combines both drama and action very well with a perfect use of effects and fades.The lyrics are also included in this amv since they match so well with Alphonse's character and life.Nemo is definitely a must hear song...
4)Don't Forget by Purelyshin - a FMA music video different from the majority.The song <Das> from E Nomine and the scenes used give it the position of the best FMA sentimental mv(my opinion always).I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed by its excellence.It leaves you with an undescribed feeling...A must download definitely.
5)Alchemist's Job by bked88 - welcome to the dark side of FMA.I would say it is more like a horror music video but it has some characteristics of a character profile mv.Anyway,Mitternacht rules as a song(yes,once again E Nomine ),as well as the mv.
6)It's Maes Life by fortune cookie productions - another character profile music video,dedicated to the funniest but also my favorite character of FMA,Brigadier Maes Hughes.Every fan of him must have this music video.A good friend,an extra-caring father and a faithful soldier.Let's take a look in his life and his tragic end...
7)Those Cursed Memories by Roccket- a very good japanese song(by Asian Kung Fu Generation),an excellent editing and a lot of good scenes used.A must see drama/action music video with very good effects.
There are a lot more music videos that deserve your attention,though...
This is actually done by *inverse*'s sister (who has done Lost Soul and other vids) if I remember correctly. A very good Nightwish video, this focuses on the tragedies of the Elric brothers and Roy very well. The clips she chose for the dark atmosphere worked very well.
This is in somewhat of the same style as Tsumibito no Kashou, with some of the overlays and fast effects. The lipsyncing is <i>very</i> well done, and so are the effects. It's the kidn of video where you'll find something new everytime you watch it!
Non-Spoiler Vids (up to ep 30 as of now):
A hilarious video that twists the EdWin couple around. Completely hilarious, even if you're not an EdWin fan Uses eps past 30, but nothing spoilerish.
One of the few videos that focuses on Young!Ed, Al, and Winry. An excellant video on the suffering they had to endure before the age of 15.
Roy and Hughes on the phone. Nough said. No music, but the lipsyncing is EXCELLANT and the conversation is hilarious
I'm a little surprised Ileia's Date Rape hasn't been added to the list yet. It's a fun video using Sublime's song of the same name that tells the story of why date rape is not something in which State Alchemists should participate.
Besides, who DOESN'T love metal penises?

Ok, here it is my post for this topic, I really like the possibility to edit this to add videos without post again. I'll start with a serie of two videos, that I really liked a lot, especially the second, really wonderful, but here there are links and stuff:
One of the best FMA videos out there and surely the best Homunculus one I ever seen, and that probably will ever be for a good amount of time. Give it a chance, it's worth downloading. Same goes for the first part, fully oriented to the fun category. Instead of this one, that is nearly a complete drama amv.
It's definately one of my favourite FMA videos and one of my favourites of all time because no matter how many times I watch it, it's as funny as the first time I saw it. Not the best editing or selection at times, but the lyric sync is brilliant.
It's a powerful, well-crafted vid. Made to the Indigo Girls song of that name, <I>Kid Fears</I> deals with Ed and the eternal question of what price his goals are worth.
Technically and emotionally right on the mark. Krypton288 really knows how to make all the parts of a vid work together for a powerful and effective result, melding music, lyrics, and visuals into a single whole. Highly recommended.
Tribute to a fallen comrade – Played at Anime Next 2005, shortly after ep 25. Not a dry eye in the house. Now my new favorite Jimmy Eat World Song.
- a must see
Awesome song, Great editing.
First heard this song to a Ruroni Kenshin vid. Thought, Dude, that rocked. What else would this fit? This’d fit FMA like a glove! But I don’t have the talent or the footage to make FMA Action vid. Fortunately, my wish was granted.
Can you believe it? Someone made a song tribute to FMA's Nina! This person brought the song to life telling her story and the lives she touched.
very emotional, and I love this song.
Totally Awesome Action amv
Best version of this combo

Great Al vid

Making an amv, is rather like being the director of a Broadway show, where you have a million dancers and each of them only knows one step.
