Created by Hiromu Arakawa for Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine in 2001, Fullmetal Alchemist is a story about two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, who learn alchemy so that they could resurrect their dead mother. However, after a terrible mistake, the Elric brothers pay a horrible price with Alphonse losing his body and linking his soul to a suit of armor and Edward losing his right arm. As the two brothers go on a quest to search for alchemy that could restore their bodies to their original forms, they join the military and deal with various ethical, moral, and political issues.
