|Full Metal Alchemist|
Edward and Alphonse Elric, the sons of a famous alchemist, were only 11 and 10 when they attempted to bring back their dead mother. After spending much of their childhood searching and prying for answers, they finally reached what they thought was the perfect solution for a problem that had long puzzled even the most diligent of alchemists, bringing back a person from the dead. That fateful night, with the rain pouring down the windows, the Elric brothers gave it their all and were punished by the heavens. Edward lost only his right arm and left leg, but his brother lost his body. With his last breath before fainting, Edward cast his brother's soul to a suit of armor. With his arm and leg replaced by the robotic auto-mail, and his brother no longer having to worry about eating, the two set out from their hometown, leaving behind only the burning cinders of their house. Edward's goal is to restore his brother's body, and in doing so, to become a Nationally Certified Alchemist, giving him access to all the information he'd need to accomplish his goal. Alphonse, on the other hand, wishes only to restore Edward's lost limbs. But there is only one thing that can restore their parts, the fabled philosopher's stone, able to create matter instantly without having a source! Yet where on earth could they find such precious jewel, if it even exists?
Great animation, cool music and an original story. All kinds of ingredients you'd like to see in an anime series. I considered some scenes a bit brutal and groce, but overall it's very nice.
