Imagine having the ability to perform alchemy to create, fix or destroy with the use of your hands and a transmutation circle. This is a possibility for some in the anime series Fullmetal Alchemist. In this show, we follow the 2 Elric brothers who have lost their bodies while performing the forbidden human transmutation. Now Eric is wearing an automail arm and leg while Alphonse lives as a body of armour anchored with a blood seal. Through the 25 episodes in season 1, we follow the boys as they seek out the philosopher stone which will help give them the power needed to regain their missing bodies.

This popular series steers clear from positivity as the Elric brothers encounter obstacles thrown at them throughout their journey. When the two get a much needed break, someone just has to mess things up. Through great voice actors and vibrant animation you will get sucked into hoping for the best as the characters develop throughout the season.

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete First Season is 4 discs with the first 25 episodes of the series and 6 guide books covering bios, pictures, settings and much more. This box set is one for Fullmetal Alchemist fans to own as they try to draw the viewer into the animation world with the extra books.

Episodes: 1-25
Bonus Material: Actor Commentaries / Textless Songs / Japanese Commercials / L’arc~En~Ciel: Read Steady Go Music Video / Tofu Records Commercial / Trailers
