Two brothers lose their mother to an incurable disease. With the power of "alchemy", they use taboo knowledge to resurrect her. The process fails, and as a toll for using this type of alchemy, the older brother, Edward Elric loses his left leg while the younger brother, Alphonse Elric loses his entire body. To save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm and is able to affix his brother's soul to a suit of armor. With the help of a family friend, Edward receives metal limbs - "automail" - to replace his lost ones. With that, Edward vows to search for the Philosopher's Stone to return the brothers to their original bodies, even if it means becoming a "State Alchemist", one who uses his/her alchemy for the military.

This is the first Fullmetal Alchemist related anime to not have Aaron Dismuke as the voice of Alphonse in the English dub. This is due to his voice changing from puberty after the dubbing of the first series and was replaced by Maxey Whitehead. However he is still part of the cast as the voice of Young Van Hohenheim in Episode 40. Making this the first time he voices a Fullmetal Alchemist character who isn't Alphonse. See more »
Better than the earlier version of Fullmetal Alchemist
I have seen both versions of Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood) and both are good to watch. In the first version (Fullmetal Alchemist), the first half of the series is really good. The fight between Edward Elric and Roy Mustang & the State Alchemist test taken by Edward Elric are notable ones. In second half, the story takes lots of twists and turns and I find it is not as impressive as the first half.
The second version (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood) definitely strike the target. In the first half, the characters were explained and moves in normal pace. In second half, the story takes it fast pace with more action. The action, comedy and sentiment were properly mixed. The decisions/resolutions taken by the Elric brothers were clearly justified. The action sequences are good compared to the other version. All characters had their importance in the series, especially I liked Armstrong siblings.
I have seen many anime series and I think Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood series is the best in overall. So I give 10 out of 10.
Suggestion: If you don't know what is Alchemism, then please watch episode 2 and then watch episode 1.
