Created by by Creator/HiromuArakawa and running between August 2001 to June 2010, ''Fullmetal Alchemist'' (Japanese title ''Hagane no Renkinjutsushi'') follows the story of the Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse, who live in a world where those who know how to do so can practice the art of alchemy (transmuting one material into another or reshaping it into new forms). The brothers' skill with alchemy at an early age led them to believe they can bring their recently-deceased mother back to life using human transmutation -- a forbidden, taboo practice of alchemy. Their hubris costs Ed his right arm and left leg (now replaced with artificial "automail" limbs) and leaves Al as a soul affixed to an empty suit of armor. Years later, the brothers set out to find the Philosopher's Stone, a legendary artifact said to allow any form of transmutation without the necessary EquivalentExchange.

In 2009 -- as the manga was nearing its end -- a new anime series (''Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood'') was announced. This is the series for anyone who wants an animated adaptation of the original manga. It follows the manga's story much more faithfully (with nearly no filler) while skimming through material already covered in the 2003 series (so it could get more quickly to the point where the 2003 series diverged). When it was released in the US, nearly the entire original cast of the 2003 series' dub reprised their parts.

In 2003, the manga was [[PragmaticAdaptation very loosely]] adapted into an [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist anime series]]. While it followed the story at first, [[OvertookTheManga it quickly spun off in another direction]], and ended up with [[GeckoEnding an entirely different conclusion altogether]]. This was pretty much inevitable since the manga was released in a monthly magazine; the weekly anime would have tons of {{filler}} to make sure it didn't overrun the story.
