Though its aestheticization lacks the ocular gravitas of other god-tier animés, FMAB deserves its prestigious status amongst the top layers of shounen by heartbreaking emotional complexity and investable protagonists – weaved through a world of monsters, transmutation, governmental conspiracy, and divinity. 9.2/10.
Plot Synopsis: Brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric search for the Philsopher’s Stone, hoping to restore their bodies, which were lost when they attempted to use their alchemy skills to resurrect their deceased mother. Edward, who lost only limbs, joins the State Military, which gives him the freedom to continue the search as he tries to restore his brother, whose soul is tethered to earth by a suit of armor. However, Edward and Alphonse are not the only ones seeking the powerful stone. And as they search, they learn of a plot to transmute the entire country for reasons they cannot comprehend.
