Summary: Rated: TV-PG through TV-14 "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." -Alphonse ElricEdward and Alphonse Elric are two brothers gifted with the ability of alchemy, the science of taking one thing and changing it into another. However, alchemy works on the theory of Equivalent Exchange -- for something to be created, something else of equal value must be sacrificed. When their mother dies, Edward decides to do the unthinkable -- bringing her back to life by preforming Human Alchemy. However, both Edward and Alphonse know that by doing so they will be breaking one of Alchemy's biggest taboos.Believing they have nothing more to lose, Ed and Al go ahead with their plan. Unfortunately, something goes horribly wrong and Ed loses his leg while Al loses his body. In order to save his brother, Ed sacrifices his arm for Al's soul and attaches it to a suit of armor.Determined to correct what they have done and get their bodies back, the brothers decide to become State Alchemists to gain access to the State's enormous library on alchemy. There, they learn of the legendary Philosopher's Stone -- an item that allows an alchemist to bypass the Law of Equivalent Exchange. They soon learn that they are not the only ones after the Stone as other forces (including the Military) join in on the hunt.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Opening Theme #1: "Melissa" by Porno Graffiti Opening Theme #2: "Ready Steady Go" by L'Arc-en-Ciel Opening Theme #3: "Undo" by Cool Joke Opening Theme #4: "Rewrite" by Asian Kung-Fu GenerationEnding Theme #1: "Kesenai Tsumi (The Unerasable Sin)" by Nana Kitade Ending Theme #2: "Tobira no Mukou e (To The Other Side of The Door)" by YeLLoW Generation Ending Theme #3: "Motherland" by Crystal Kay Ending Theme #4: "I Will" by Sowelu------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Main CharactersEdward Elric: The older of the two brothers, he is also the most gifted.
