Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, commonly referred to as FMAB is the second adaptation of the hit manga series Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa. In 2003, shortly after the manga began its run, the first adaptation titled Fullmetal Alchemist was made. Being an early adaptation, the first animated series outpaced the manga and veered from the original story early on in its run. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, having been made later in 2009, is thus a more faithful adaptation of the events that are depicted in the source material that was nearing its end by then. Despite being the second anime adaptation, the series was very well received and garnered much praise from its audience.

Overall Synopsis

Equivalent exchange. To create one thing, another of equal value must be given up in return. That is the principle behind alchemy in the world of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Having grown up in the absence of their father who left earlier on in their life, Edward Elric and his younger brother Alphonse Elric were raised by their loving mother. Their time with her however, was cut short when an epidemic took her life and left the two without parents. With the overwhelming desire to see their mother again, Edward and Alphonse delved into their research on alchemy by studying their father’s notes on the subject. Through their tireless research they discovered what is considered to be the greatest taboo of alchemy, human transmutation. Having learned of this, they decided to use alchemy to create a human being. Their intention was to use the constituents of the human body to bring their mother back from the grave.

On the day of the ritual, the Elric brothers gathered the materials and performed the transmutation. However, what they managed to create was not their mother but a mere shell of what a human should be. Under the pretense of equivalent exchange, their transmutation ended in disaster; the brothers unexpectedly lost Edward’s left leg and Alphonse
