The Fall of Ishbal is the fourth English DVD volume of the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime series, released by Funimation on July 26, 2005. The DVD contains four episodes:
- Episode 13: Fullmetal vs. Flame
- Episode 14: Destruction's Right Hand
- Episode 15: The Ishbal Massacre
- Episode 16: That Which Is Lost
The back of the DVD cover contains the following synopsis:
- "The Elrics return to Eastern Headquarters to report their progress — which, as mustang points out, is none. Ed and Al leave for the countryside to search for Doctor Marcoh, a State Alchemist who deserted during the Eastern Rebellion and is now a fugitive of the state. Unbeknownst to the brothers, Marcoh possesses secrets that could prove invaluable — if they can keep him alive. On the run from both Scar and the military, Doctor Marcoh confesses to the Elrics the reason these tragedies are happening.
- A decade ago, State Alchemists were called into Ishbal to end a seven-year civil war. What followed was a wave of unspeakable atrocities that neither the Ishbalans, nor the State Alchemists who committed them, can forget."
In addition to the textless songs, production art and trailers which regularly appear on Fullmetal Alchemist DVDs, this volume also contains the first episode of the anime series Spiral and the music video for Ready Steady Go!, as well as character profiles for Scar, Jean Havoc, Vato Falman, Kain Fuery, Heymans Breda, Tim Marcoh and Envy.
