My husband and I started watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood on Netflix and we watched the entire show in 4 days. It was awesome. So I decided to try reading the actual Manga. This is my first foray into reading Manga and I’m loving it! The art and story of Fullmetal Alchemist are awesome. This is such a creative series and I’m enjoying it immensely. I don’t know how many of you are into anime or Manga, but if you are, I would read these and watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. They are awesome and fantastical.
Side note: I would watch the show in Japanese with English subtitles. More fun that way.
Alchemy: the mystical power to alter the natural world; something between magic, art, and science. When two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, dabbled in this power to grant their dearest wish, one of them lost an arm and a leg…and the other became nothing but a soul locked into a body of living steel. Now Edward is a agent of the government, a slave of the military-alchemical complex, using his unique powers to obey orders…even to kill. Except his powers aren’t unique. The world has been ravaged by the abuse of alchemy. And in the pursuit of the ultimate alchemical treasure, the Philosopher’s Stone, their enemies are even more ruthless than they are…
