The Facts are These:
Edward and Alphonse Elric lost their mother and to bring her back they commit a taboo for alchemists, Human Transmutation. This failed with Edward losing an arm and a leg and Alphonse losing his body. Now they are trying to find the Philosopher Stone the only thing that may be able to get them their bodies back.
This show is amazing that is word that can be used to describe it. The show overflows with creativity and use of ideas that were not as common till the show started. Before fullmetal alchemist no one thought twice about alchemy or how it could be used in a different sense. The characters are well developed and there are times in the show you feel genuinely sad. The use music and the history put into the world is important to the story and if taken away the show would lose some of its charm. Even the villains towards the end for some of them are pitiful and it can make you feel uncomfortable.
Behind the Scenes:
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is based off the manga Fullmetal Alchemist created by author and artist Hiromu Arakawa. Her other works include Hero Tales and Silver Spoon, both of which have been adapted into an anime. The series was directed by Yasuhiro Irie, with his other works including Kurau Phantom Memory, Code: Breaker and the opening songs for Fullmetal Alchemist. The series was composed by Hiroshi Onogi, with his other works including Birdy the Mighty Decode and Shangri-La. The series is a spin off of the original series Fullmetal Alchemist. The original series was developed while the manga was currently ongoing, making for a different storyline. This was changed in Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, where the story stays faithful to the original source material.

A Brief View of the World:
The series takes place primarily in the country of Amestris, a country that resembles Germany. The series though visits other countries in the world such as Xerxes and Xing. In this world through the use of equations and drawings known as Transmutation Circles allows Alchemists to perform science experiments that follow the laws of Equivalent Exchange.
The series is great, with a great story, characters and overall a great time. I could not recommend this series enough, with just a fun and great time. The story can get dark, but it is overall a great time. This is all I can really say about this series, this show is an example of what is different about anime compared to other visual mediums.
The series has a great story which help with the idea of rewatching the show, though the length makes it hard to rewatch. With a length of 64 episodes I have rewatched the show and I think it is worth a rewatched.
Fullmetal Alchemist – I like the original series and think it would be good to watch it.
D. Gray Man – For an overall enjoyable shonen series.
