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.

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

Much like the original with an engaging plot and characters, but with a broader view of the world in which it is set. Both series are interesting and compelling but I personally prefer the original.

The second anime of FMA. This one is based on the actual manga and has one of the best storylines of anime history. A must watch! 5 Stars

So special to me. It doesn't matter if you're not a fan of anime .. this is one of the best shows full stop, and you will love it! Storytelling, character development, art direction, humour, action and emotion FMA Brotherhood is everything you could want a show to be and more.

Much better than the prequel.
Much more interesting and didn't start in the exact same way.
Made the viewer guess a lot more and had more satisfying ends to individual stories.
A really interesting show and a must watch especially for anime watchers.

A bit better than the original and it follows the manga a lot more closely, but its a bit fast in the beginning so I think thats it's expected that you either A. read the manga or B. watched the 2003 version. I'm not completely sure about the manga though as I have not read it yet.
