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.

90to5 Editor Bio: Hello! my name is Umika!
I’m 20 years old and I’m working on getting my Bachelor’s in Animation and Video Editing. I’ve been making music videos for anime (called anime music videos or amv) since I was 14. And now I’ve decided to share my talents with you all! I hope you all like it!
I actually chose an anime called Fullmetal Alchemist, and created a music video using scenes from throughout the whole series. I think it summarizes it very well. It is my favourite anime so I think I know enough about it to make it accurate.
