The Japanese anime television series Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is adapted from the original manga series by Hiromu Arakawa. The total number of episodes in this show was sixty-four, and one reported filler episode existed.
The story follows two brothers who attempt to use alchemy (the science of understanding and changing matter) to restore their bodies after the Elric Brothers’ mother passes away from an illness. Her soul was transferred into another body before Al could save it with his newly discovered abilities as a State Alchemist.
However, when they fail at reviving their dead mom using human transmutation, which would be illegal under military law if caught, Edward loses his left leg. At the same time, Alphonse’s whole body disintegrates apart except for his right arm, and Brother has no choice but to seal him inside of a nearby suit of armor until he gets revenge on those responsible.
