About the series:
Fullmetal Alchemist follows the story of the Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse, who commit the ultimate taboo of attempting to use alchemy to resurrect their deceased mother. As a consequence, Edward loses an arm and a leg, while Alphonse’s entire body is lost. Determined to restore their bodies, the brothers search for the powerful talisman known as the Philosopher’s Stone, but their journey ultimately leads them into the sordid world of government corruption, racial intolerance and mass genocide.
