About Fullmetal Alchemist:

Fullmetal Alchemist is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa.

It was serialized in Square Enix’s shonen manga anthology magazine Monthly Shonen Gangan between July 2001 and June 2010; the publisher later collected the individual chapters in 27 tankōbon volumes.

It has been adapted into various anime. These include two television series, Fullmetal Alchemist in 2003 and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood in 2009.

The series also inspired two anime films, released in 2005 and 2011. All these adaptations were done by Studio Bones.

The series has generated original video animations (OVAs), video games, supplementary books, a collectible card game, and a variety of action figures and other merchandise.

In 2017, a live-action film based on the series was also released. Later, two sequels to it were released in 2022.

Crunchyroll describes the overall plot of Fullmetal Alchemist as follows:

Disregard for alchemy’s laws ripped half of Ed Elric’s limbs from his body and left Al’s soul clinging to a suit of armor.

To restore what was lost, the brothers seek the Philosopher’s Stone. Enemies and allies – the corrupt military, the Homunculi, and foreign alchemists – will alter the Elric’s course, but their purpose will remain unchanged and their bond unbreakable.
