Fullmetal Alchemist is a Japanese anime television series about two brothers who practice alchemy to restore their bodies after leaving them with only one accident. The show aired fifty-one episodes total, but it had three filler episodes that weren’t based on the manga’s original plot line.
When their mother died, the two brothers tried to bring her back by using an alchemical technique called human transmutation. The attempt failed and they lost parts of their bodies as a result; Edward loses his left leg while Alphonse is less affected but still loses part of himself in the process. They travel across Amestris with hopes that it will lead them to where this mythical stone can be found so they can use its power for good purposes – since only someone without any form would ever want such powerful artifact anyway!
