This is one of those anime that I could not stop watching until I had gotten a hold of every single episode. It is a long series, but still I was sucked in and waiting anxiously for each and every Netflix disk to arrive in the mail. The story has the type of heroes that most of us cannot get enough of. The sweet boy trapped inside the body of a robot, a feisty older brother who makes up for what he lacks in height with true grit and magic, to boot.
Below see a summary of the manga/anime copied directly from Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia: Fullmetal Alchemist.
“Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師 Hagane no Renkinjutsushi?, literally “Alchemist of Steel”), is a Japanese manga series (and anime) written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa. The world of Fullmetal Alchemist is styled after the European Industrial Revolution. Set in a fictional universein which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques known to man, the story follows the brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who want to restore their bodies after a disastrous failed attempt to bring their mother back to life through alchemy.”

Hope you enjoy the episodes as much as I do.
