About Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood:

Disregard for alchemy’s laws ripped half of Ed Elric’s limbs from his body and left Al’s soul clinging to a suit of armor. To restore what was lost, the brothers seek the Philosopher’s Stone. Enemies and allies – the corrupt military, the Homunculi, and foreign alchemists – will alter the Elric’s course, but their purpose will remain unchanged and their bond unbreakable.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the second anime adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s manga series Fullmetal Alchemist and animated by studio Bones. Manga Entertainment has released Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood as a complete series box set for Blu-ray & DVD (Region B/2 compatible only).
