"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth." -Alphonse Elric Edward and Alphonse Elric are two brothers gifted with the ability of alchemy, the science of taking one thing and changing it into another. However, alchemy works on the theory of Equivalent Exchange -- for something to be created, something else of equal value must be sacrificed. When their mother dies, Edward decides to do the unthinkable -- bringing her back to life by breaking one of Alchemy's biggest taboos and performing Human Alchemy. Thinking they have nothing more to lose, he and Alphonse make their attempt -- but something goes horribly wrong. In the process, Alphonse loses his body and Edward loses his leg. Ed manages to save Al by attaching his spirit to a suit of armor, but at the cost of his arm and leg.

@rjmendus This is stupid. Because you think that the one show is better than the other one, doesn't mean that nobody should watch this show. Like, I consider Love Live way better than the K-On!, but I never told anyone to not watch K-On!. They both are really cute, heart-warming anime and deserve to be viewed. So is it with this show. I really like it and so does a lot of people.

Not as good as Fullmetal Alchemis Brotherhood, but very, very creative.
