Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - A Faithful Adaptation of the Acclaimed Manga Series
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a Japanese anime television series adapted from the original Fullmetal Alchemist manga series by Hiromu Arakawa. Produced by Bones, the series is directed by Yasuhiro Irie, written by Hiroshi Ånogi and composed by Akira Senju. The series was conceived in order to create a faithful adaptation that directly follows the entire storyline of the original manga, after 2003's Fullmetal Alchemist anime series strayed away from it to tell its own story after running out of published manga material to adapt.
The series follows the adventures of two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, who are alchemists - people who can manipulate matter with a science-like technique. After a failed attempt to revive their deceased mother using alchemy, they lose parts of their bodies and embark on a quest to find the Philosopher's Stone, a mythical object that can restore what they have lost. Along the way, they uncover a sinister conspiracy that threatens the world and face many enemies and allies.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood was broadcast for sixty-four episodes on MBSâTBS from April 2009 to July 2010. The series was first licensed in North America by Funimation and was broadcast English-dubbed on Adult Swim from February 2010 to September 2011. The series received critical acclaim for its story, characters, animation, music and voice acting, and is widely considered one of the best anime series of all time. It also spawned a spin-off film, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos, released in 2011.
