In this world, there exists people with special abilities to manipulate objects and transform one object into another. These people are known as alchemists. This process does come with a cost though, the basic law of alchemy states that to gain something you have to sacrifice something of the same value.

The main character is the famous alchemist Edward Elric - also known as the Fullmetal Alchemist - who almost lost his little brother, Alphonse, in an accident. Edward managed to contain his brother's soul in a large suit of armor. While he did manage to save his brother's life, he had to pay a great price himself.

To get back what they've lost, the brothers embark on a journey to find the Philosophers Stone that is said to amplify the powers of an alchemist enormously.

I like this anime. basically I agree with the term "in order for one to gain, one has to sacrifice something of equal value".

It's like a combination of chemistry (mild) and alchemy, the conversion of a substance to another.

Elric and Al tried to revive their mother who died, by studying the compositions of elements of a human body carefully, they tried to transmute their mother back to life, unfortunately, they saw the gate while doing so. They unwittingly lost their body parts, but in turn, got massive knowledge of transmution (they are now able to perform a transmution without a transmution circle)

However, their attempt wasn't a failure. Her mother became a zombie like creature known as homunculus, a being which is capable of self animation, able to transform any of their body parts, but it has no soul and cannot perform alchemy.

And just as one was going to believe that the homunculus was out to kill every last human alive, the story twisted. The humunculus was, too, trying to make a philosophical stone, to archeive eternal life...

hohoho. well, even with the basic theme of "the Law of Equivalency", you must remember that in the end, it was all BS!
(insane giggle) YES, that is RIGHT!!!
This show is deeper than you can ever imagine in the beginning! Pulling you in with only the first two amazing episodes, this series sets you on a path that will throw your emotions around like a hacky sack.
I freakin love this show, but seriously, more unconscious tears flowed down my face throughout my history with Ed and Al than any other pair. It's INTENSE!!!!

Full Metal Alchemist really is a superb anime. It's one of my all time favorites. But I've also seen the movie, and my own personal suggestion is for people to not watch the movie, because I found it to be very dissapointing. It was very lacking in a good plot and character development like how it was in the series, and I found the way that they tied everything together was very odd. I wished I had not seen the movie and had just left the bitter sweet feelings I had for the anime alone, because it was much nicer than the disapointment that I felt after watching the movie. Anyways, going back to the anime, not only does it have fantastic humor and action in it, the deeper meanings that lurk underneath the surface of the story are just mind boggling. A pleasure to watch from the first episode to the last.

This anime is qute good...Although the ending is not match for what I hope
I like the main character and also the concept that this anime brings. It`s unique and new.
The humour is fun, I like it very much but, again, the story(in anime) too complicated and somehow confusing, and boring
I prefer to read the manga instead watching the anime because the anime doesn`t has really good basic in the end, not like the manga is still continue...become more interesting but, again, little bit confusing(but I still like it)
