Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth. See more »
Certain characters from both the anime and the manga have the same names and faces but different origins to their stories. (I.e., in the manga Homunculi can only be made by Father. In the anime, they're the result of failed human transmutation. Etc.) The Elric brothers' father Hohenheim, is unique among these characters as his origins were vastly different from either story and his name was different. In this anime, Hohenheim of light was the first Alchemist to create a Philospher's stone and began jumping bodies in order to live longer. In the manga and second anime, Von Hohenheim was a slave who was "gifted" with an immortal body through the Philospher's stone that was bestowed upon him by Father. See more »
The classic sewer escape.
Don't follow him.
Dammit, I was about to jump in!
Nice mess! Is it over yet?
You know, you could try to help while you're here, Hughes.
Lay off, I'm as normal as they come and this is a contest of freaks. What do you want me to do, fire my slingshot at him?

Dear, Dear, anime fans who obsess over Naruto and Bleach-YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET
If I were to pick one word to describe FullMetal Alchemist, Hagane no renkinjutsushi, it would amazing, or ohmygod, or simply just a drop of the jaw and "wow." But that wouldn't do something this great justice. For those of you have heard this series can't compare with Naruto and Bleach, no, it can't, it's 100x better. This series will make you laugh, feel a very deep compassion for the characters, want to make you scream in rage, make you want to scream with happiness, and yes, even cry. Yeah. I cried a couple times. And the plot, oh yes, the plot. It's one of the best I've ever seen. Some might say it's too dark, I disagree, it's just honest. It explains that what's gone is gone, and we can't bring it back, people die for a reason, people die for no reason, life isn't fair, you only get what you give, all good things come to an end and we can only make the best of what we're given. Now the Characters, from Edward to Envy, Winry to Hughes, Scar to Rose, Riza to Roy, all characters have something special about them, and it will make you feel a deep compassion for them, weather it's Edward or Roy. Each character is developed and deep to it's full extent. The music is great, the Japanese voice actors are amazing, and the English Dub is one of the best I've seen. In short: If your an anime fan, or just dipping your toes, FullMetal Alchemist is a showcase of wonderful characters and plot, action, drama, tears and laughs.
