Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Fullmetal Alchemist

Show Summary

Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Fullmetal Alchemist is an alternate retelling of the story, based solely on the manga. It is not directly connected to the first Hagane no Renkinjutsushi series, and thus has a deviating storyline. Alchemy is the science of transmuting something with the use of raw materials. The basis of alchemy is known as equivalent exchange, which demands that the materials you use be of equal worth to what you plan to create. Edward and Alphonse Elric are two brothers who spent their younger days studying alchemy from their forsaken father's textbooks. After their mother passes away, the brothers attempt a human transmutation; a forbidden form of alchemy, in hopes of reviving her. Their attempt fails miserably, which costs Ed his left leg and right arm, while Al loses his body entirely, but has his soul affixed to a suit of armor. Years later, Ed and Al are searching for the legendary Philosopher's Stone, which is said to be capable of bypassing equivalent exchange. With it, Ed and Al intend to restore their bodies, but they'll first need to fight those who seek to destroy the already suffering country they live in.

  • One of the best anime out there.

    This show is truly superb from start to finish. It has great plot and character development and it really tackles a lot of large issues in a simplistic way through great storytelling. Even if you aren't a fan of anime or don't think that this is for you I recommend that you at least try it and watch the first couple of episodes. A truly fantastic show.
