Hagane no Renkinjutsushi
Episodes: 51 Start date: End date:


There exist those with special abilities to manipulate objects and transform them into other objects called the Alchemists. However, this manipulation process comes at a price, since the basic alchemy rules state that something with equivalent value is needed to perform the manipulation.

The renowned alchemist Edward Elric loses his little brother Alphonse in an accident. Edward manages to contain his brother`s soul in a large piece of armour suit, but by doing so Edward loses his arm and leg. And so the brothers set out on a perilous journey to regain their original bodies.

If you liked Brotherhood, but like darker and grittier anime, this is for you.

This version isn't as faithful to the manga, due to the fact that the manga wasn't finished when this was released. It changes large parts of the story, adds new characters and has a very different ending.

In this version, alchemy uses souls from our world. At the end, Alphonse gets his body back and Edward is transported to our world. The show ends on a cliffhanger, but is concluded in the film

In general, I like this anime adaptation more than FMAB. It focuses more on morality and the consequences of the actions that happen through the story. Also, the death of a certain character (you know who) impacted me a lot more in this version, so if you want to suffer that event again, watch this!

This show is hands down a top ten favorite for me. It has everything. Feels, action, humor, and a magic-like central theme. It's a good watch or re-watch.
