Summary: After losing their mother, Alphonse and Edward Elric attempt to bring her back using the forbidden science of human alchemy. However, alchemy operates on the theory of equivalent trade, and breaking the human alchemy taboo carries a heavy price. Ed loses his leg, and Al loses his body. Ed is able to seal Al's soul inside of a huge suit of armor, at the cost of his arm. Years later, Ed (now with two mechanical limbs) and Al (still trapped in the armor) leave their childhood home, each brother concerned with the other's happiness. Ed, who has a natural talent and skill for alchemy, becomes nationally certified and is soon known everywhere as the "Fullmetal Alchemist." Their true objective is to search for any information on the fabled Philosopher's Stone, hoping it will allow them to regain their old bodies. All of their hopes rest with this mythical stone, which may not even exist at all. However, the brothers soon learn that they are not the only ones after the powerful stone.

Compared to FMA Brotherhood this alternative 2nd half was too chaotic and confusing. Despite great the action being well done, the finale of this series is rather dumb...

pros
+ good concept with interesting characters & development
+ good voice acting, hd design, and well-selected op/ed pieces
+ good story with drama, emotion, psychology, action, comedy
cons
- story differs from the manga alot and the end may just drive you up the wall
- doesn't go into depth concerning e.g. 'the father'
- dialogue isn't quite amazing

conclusion: so you might need a bit of patience on this one as it does differ from the manga. e.g. it spends a lot of time talking about politics rather than on the mc's and their cause. (read more)

Hearing a lot opinions that 'Fullmetal Alchemist' and 'Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood' are similar but first is not following the manga and that funs were dissapointed I had a hard time thinking- which one first? I couldn't find the answer in reviews so I'm writing a one to help others hestating. :)

FMA is a good story, you can feel the bond between brothers, but since I watched FMAB first, I've felt the lack. It is really different story than FMAB.. Although it starts with an introduction to the presented world and brothers' circumstances (read more)

This anime simply rocks.... From the bond between Ed and Al, it shows how deep our family emotions can be.... And the way all the other characters support the heroes is well shown.... The comedy mainly revolves around Ed and Al ( not to forget, Winry :P ).... And it especially stressed well on this point "Each and Every thing is not going to have the same price to be paid by all.... But that doesnt mean that we have to stop working hard to reach our goals"........
The part which i don't like in this anime is that, Winry finally becomes alone..... (read more)

Whenever someone asks me what anime I'd recommend, without any hesitation I say Fullmetal Alchemist. This anime totally captivated me that I watch it in great concentration, not wanting to miss any word or action. The characters are well thought of and are memorable. Each episode is substantial, indispensable, and just makes you want to see the next one- immediately. I wouldn't be embarrassed to say I sacrificed sleep, skipped a few meals and cried several times for this. The dialogues are not always direct but they're always witty. I think it's (read more)
