Edward Elric, a young, brilliant alchemist, has lost much in his twelve-year life: when he and his brother Alphonse try to resurrect their dead mother through the forbidden act of human transmutation, Edward loses his brother as well as two of his limbs. With his supreme alchemy skills, Edward binds Alphonse's soul to a large suit of armor.

A year later, Edward, now promoted to the fullmetal alchemist of the state, embarks on a journey with his younger brother to obtain the Philosopher's Stone. The fabled mythical object is rumored to be capable of amplifying an alchemist's abilities by leaps and bounds, thus allowing them to override the fundamental law of alchemy: to gain something, an alchemist must sacrifice something of equal value. Edward hopes to draw into the military's resources to find the fabled stone and restore his and Alphonse's bodies to normal. However, the Elric brothers soon discover that there is more to the legendary stone than meets the eye, as they are led to the epicenter of a far darker battle than they could have ever imagined.

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.

Spoiler

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.

      Soooooooooo like 2 years ago there where this popular challenge that a lot of one piece YouTubers made that asked what would your crew be? well since it has been 2 years and there has been a lot of new characters introduces. I thought it would be nice to rebirth it.
       
      The rules are simple
       
      PIRATE CREW RULES
      - You're the captain of your pirate crew in the One Piece world. What is your Devil Fruit power (if you have one) and what role would you play on the crew besides captain?
      - Pick 12 One Piece characters (six fighters and six supports) and form a crew that you believe could handle the New World and help you become Pirate King.
      - You cannot have any Yonko (past or present) on your crew. Kaido, Big Mom, Blackbeard, Shanks, and Whitebeard are off-limits.
      - Describe ship/fleet and theme maybe. (Optional)

      The rules to this game is this:
      1. Hinata Hyuuga is the main villain.

      2. Sasuke has to die by Hinata.

      3. Boruto has to kill Hinata.

      4. Himawari has to kill Boruto.

      5. Sarada killed Himawari.

      6. Naruto killed Sarada.

      7. Sakura killed Naruto. While dying Naruto told her his love for her was true love not a competition with Sasuke. Naruto says he was the Sasuke at the bench. "You only love Sasuke cause your competition with Ino." "Before I passed away. I always thought of you Have a Charming forehead and makes me want to kiss it." Naruto kissed it then passed on. Then Sakura pulls a Tsunade and ran off never seen again.  Sakura stole some sperms from Naruto and Sasuke's sperm bank.

      Hellloooo! (I hope I'm putting this post in the right category!)
      Tonight, I will start watching My Hero Academia.
      I thought it would be fun if anybody else is still in the beginning of the series, that we have some place to talk about it while we are watching it? (I never used a forum before maybe thats more of a chat/discord kind of topic idk)
      Anyways, it would be fun to talk about our impressions with someone who is also experiencing MHA for the first time!
