Based on the popular manga Fullmetal Alchemist – Hagane no Renkinjutsushi by female author Hiromu Arakawa, this is the second version released after the first version and its movie ended in 2005. Two brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric lost his mother to an illness. With the desire to revive their mother, the two brothers violated the taboo of Alchemy – Transfiguration and had to pay a heavy price. Edward lost his left leg and his brother, Alphonse, lost his entire body. Ed trades his extra right arm for his brother’s soul and applies it to a suit of armor. With the help of Winry and Mrs. Pinako Rockbell, Ed was fitted with prosthetic limbs – automail to continue his journey to find the legendary Philosopher’s Stone to regain his brother’s body and restore his body. He joined the army and became the National Alchemist. But the story just begins here, what’s the secret behind it all? Around the Philosopher’s Stone and Amestris itself?
