Alchemists, Chimera’s, and Homonculus, Oh My!

Now that I have finally finished the two posts on the Homestuck Trolls, its time to get back to yet another anime review. This time its on the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (FMA). FMA is about Edward and Alphonse Elric, who are trying to get their bodies back. Edward lost his left leg and right arm, while Alphonse lost his entire body and ended up transmuted into a suit of armor, when the two of them attempted to bring there mother back to life by performing human transmutation.

After this series of events occurs, they begin their journey by having Edward join the military as an alchemist, so that they have access to private documents in their search for the Philosopher’s Stone. Which is a fabled stone that is said to be able to surpass the laws of equivalent exchange. These laws state that anything you create must be traded with something of equal value, and that you can never get more for less.

But the Philosopher’s Stone, is a stone able to go past that boundary, and make things out of nothing. Using this stone if found, they could remake Edwards Arm, and remake Alphonse’s complete body. However getting the stone, will be quite a difficult task. Including the Homonculus which are these seemingly immortal people trying to stop them, as well as chimera and other alchemists that will stand in their way.
