Blurb: Using a forbidden alchemical ritual, the Elric brothers attempted to bring their dead mother back to life. But the ritual went wrong, consuming Edward Elric’s leg and Alphonse Elric’s entire body. At the cost of his arm, Edward was able to graft his brother’s soul into a suit of armor. Equipped with mechanical “auto-mail” to replace his missing limbs, Edward becomes a state alchemist, serving the military on deadly missions. But their powers aren’t unique. The world crawels with evil alchemists. And in pursuit of the ultimate alchemical treasure, the Philosopher’s Stone, their enemies are even more ruthless than they are…………Now, the two brothers roam the world in search of a way to regain what they lost….
My Thoughts: I give the FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood series 5/5 stars. It has just the right touch of emotion and action. You’ll be sure to be sitting on the edge of your seat throughout the entire 26 volumes. If you don’t like manga your sure to after this series. There is a balence of humour, seriousness and a touch of romance to top it off. If you don’t like manga your sure to after this series. I recommend all 26 volumes to anyone who’s up for action, adventure and nail-biting suspense.

Here are some funny parts from the anime…
The FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood series is written by Hiromu Arakawa and it has a anime. So if don’t like to read you can still enjoy it by watching. If you like FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood you can watch the movie which takes place between the volumes of the Brotherhood series and is called Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos or the Conqueror of Shamballa(takes place after the FullMetal Alchemist- the first series).
