The rules of alchemy state that to gain something, one must lose something of equal value. Alchemy is the process of taking apart and reconstructing an object into a different entity, with the rules of alchemy to govern this procedure. However, there exists an object that can bring any alchemist above these rules, the object known as the Philosopher's Stone. The young Edward Elric is a particularly talented alchemist who through an accident years back lost his younger brother Alphonse and one of his legs. Sacrificing one of his arms as well, he used alchemy to bind his brother's soul to a suit of armor. This lead to the beginning of their journey to restore their bodies, in search for the legendary Philosopher's Stone.

Full-metal Alchemist This series follows the adventures of Edward and Alphonse Elric in a fictional, industrial revolution type of world. While it boasts great animation, fun action sequences, great acting, and a cool soundtrack, those are not the reasons I love this show. I love it because the story is great. The bond of brotherhood between the two main characters is strong, and it is the main driving force behind everything that happens. There arenâ€™t a lot of anime with magical powers that manage to pull you in emotionally, but this one does. From beginning to end you will experience all the same emotions (love, anger, sadness) that the Elric Brothers feel. This is a huge testament to great storytelling. Even though some critics say this is overhyped, I dare them to find any series that is as emotionally involving and as endearing.
