ABOUT FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD
Alchemy: The science of understanding, decomposing, and reconstructing matter.
However, it is not an omnipotent art. It is impossible to create something out of nothing. If one wishes to obtain something, something of equal value must be paid.
This law of equivalent exchange is the basis of alchemy.
There is a taboo among Alchemists: human transmutation. It is that which no one must commit.
Edward and Alphonse Elric break this taboo hoping they can revive their beloved mother. As a result, Edward loses his right arm and left leg and Alphonse has his whole body taken away. The Elric brothers embark their journey to find the “Philosopher’s Stone” to regain their bodies…
