Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

15 minutes

Two brothers lose their mother to an incurable disease. With the power of "alchemy", they use taboo knowledge to resurrect her. The process fails, and as a toll for using this type of alchemy, the older brother, Edward Elric loses his left leg while the younger brother, Alphonse Elric loses his entire body. To save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm and is able to affix his brother's soul to a suit of armor. With the help of a family friend, Edward receives metal limbs - "automail" - to replace his lost ones. With that, Edward vows to search for the Philosopher's Stone to return the brothers to their original bodies, even if it means becoming a "State Alchemist", one who uses his/her alchemy for the military.

Back when Izumi was eighteen years old, she had traveled to meet the alchemist Silver Steiner and had requested to be his apprentice. Giving her only a knife, he had told her to survive one month on the summit of Briggs before she can become his apprentice. On the second day, she had been found by some of guards of Briggs Fortress, but had managed to beat them and take their food rations. On the eighth day, she had been close to starving to death, but then had become motivated to survive. As she had learned to defend herself and live off of the wildlife, she had realized the meaning behind alchemy, saying that one is all, and all is one. However, returning after a month, it is revealed she had been talking to Silver's older brother, Gold Steiner, who is not an alchemist but rather a hand-to-hand combat specialist. Annoyed, Izumi beats him and leaves. This ends with an exaggerated look on the first meeting between Izumi and Sig.

ONE OF THE BEST ANIME OF ALL TIME! Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is the remake of the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime. Telling the beautiful story of the Elric brothers, more likely then not if you like anime you have already seen it. But if you don't normally like animated shows, this is still one definitely worth trying out. It's well written and delivers as one of the best series in the anime world
