26 Animes Like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Elric brothers Edward and Alphonse have been left reeling by a disastrous alchemy experiment gone horribly wrong. Contrary to alchemical theory, the lads sought to resurrect their recently departed mother. For their part, Alphonse’s body dissolved and Edward’s leg and arm were amputated in the process of wrapping the massive suit of armor around Alphonse’s spirit.

Pinako Rockbell and her granddaughter Winry come to the aid of the brothers, saving them from certain death. By using “automail,” which is a durable and adaptable metal often employed in robotics and battle armor, Winry develops prosthetic limbs for Edward. The Elric brothers set out on a journey to get the Philosopher’s Stone, a magical stone that permits alchemists to break the traditional principles of Equivalent Exchange.

A burgeoning conspiracy threatens the future of the planet as Edward grows in fame and notoriety as the famed alchemist known as “Fullmetal” among the lads.
