Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師 Hagane no Renkinjutsushi?, lit. "Alchemist of Steel"), commonly abbreviated as FMA or Hagaren, is an ongoing Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa. The story centers around a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques, resulting in different technological developments. The world of Fullmetal Alchemist is based on the countries of Europe during the Industrial Revolution period as well as several experiences from the author's life.[1] The plot follows the adventures of two brothers, alchemists named Edward and Alphonse Elric, who want to recover parts of their bodies they lost in an attempt to bring their mother back to life.

Plot

Edward and Alphonse Elric are brothers living in the village of Resembool in the country of Amestris. Their father Hohenheim left home when Edward and Alphonse were still very young. Years later, their mother, Trisha Elric, dies of a terminal illness. After their mother's death, Edward becomes determined to bring her back through the use of alchemy.[10] However, this attempt failed, ultimately resulting in the loss of Edward's left leg and Alphonse's entire body.[11] In a desperate effort to save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm to affix his brother's soul to a suit of armor.[12] After that, Edward's left leg and right arm are fitted with two sets of automail, a type of advanced prosthetic limb.[13] Edward Elric ) is a fictional character in the Fullmetal Alchemist universe created by Hiromu Arakawa and developed into a media franchise, consisting of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and even collectibles. ...

Edward sets out to become a State Alchemist, enabling him to use the resources available to State Alchemists to discover a way to restore what he and Alphonse had lost.[13] The brothers eventually learn of the Philosopher's Stone and set off in search of it as a means to restore their bodies.[14] Along the way they discover secrets about the Philosopher's Stone they never wanted to know, and find others who seek it as well, doing almost whatever they can to get their hands on it.

The stories of the manga and anime separate soon after the encounter with Greed, and weave vastly different tales. The most prominent of the differences is the primary antagonist. In the manga, this is a man known simply as "Father". Father is the creator of all the homunculi in the manga series and commands them from behind the curtains of the High Command of the country Amestris.[15] It is suspected that Father plans to use Amestris as a gigantic transmutation circle to create a Philosopher's Stone, but the homunculus Envy hints that, although close, this is not the whole truth.[16] Father healing Al, apparently ignoring the Law of Equivalent Exchange and using no alchemic array or hand movement. ...


Father's counterpart in the anime is a woman called Dante, a former lover of Hohenheim. Centuries ago, the two were masterful alchemists and perfected methods for making the Philosopher's Stone and a form of immortality in which they use others' bodies until they age. Hohenheim eventually fell in love with another and left Dante, taking with him the perfected Philosopher's Stone formula. Although Dante is still able to jump from body to body to cheat death over the centuries, she is able to spend less and less time in each body as it decays faster with each jump, and each jump results in the stone she possesses to lose its power over time. She uses the Homunculi to spur Edward and Alphonse, along with other Alchemists as desperate as they are, into creating another complete Philosopher's Stone for her.[17]


Main characters

See also: Minor characters of Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Edward Elric (エドワード・エルリック Edowādo Erurikku?), commonly nicknamed "Ed", is the main protagonist of the series. Edward is famous for being the youngest State Alchemist of the country winning the title of "Fullmetal Alchemist". Edward is of short stature, and typically reacts in an exaggerated manner to any remarks about his height. After losing his right arm and left leg as a result of a failed human transmutation and the binding of Alphonse's soul to a suit of armor, he received automail prosthetics.[18] He starts searching for the Philosopher's Stone in order to recover the body of his younger brother as well as his missing limbs.[14] In the anime, Edward is voiced by Romi Paku in Japanese and Vic Mignogna in the English dub.
  • Alphonse Elric (アルフォンス・エルリック Arufonsu Erurikku?), often nicknamed "Al," is Edward's younger brother and Fullmetal Alchemist's secondary protagonist. For most of the series, his soul is trapped in a large suit of armor as a result of performing human transmutation,[18] causing other characters throughout the series to confuse Al with the "Fullmetal" Alchemist. Alphonse is the calmer of the two, and can be seen as a foil to Edward's character. He starts the search for the Philosopher's Stone with his brother hoping to recover their bodies.[14] Alphonse is voiced by Rie Kugimiya in Japanese and Aaron Dismuke is his English voice actor.
  • Roy Mustang (ロイ・ムスタング Roi Musutangu?) is a State Alchemist known as the "Flame Alchemist" due to his ability to create fire with his gloves.[19] He is Edward's direct superior officer in the military, but has his own goal, mainly to become the Führer, leader of the military. During the series, his friend Maes Hughes is killed after discovering the secret of the Ishval Civil War resulting in the start of his search of Hughes's murderer.[20] Roy is voiced by Tōru Ōkawa in Japanese, while by Travis Willingham in English.
  • Winry Rockbell (ウィンリィ・ロックベル Winrī Rokkuberu?) is a mechanical expert who is a childhood friend of the Elrics. She, along with her grandmother Pinako, built Edward's automail, and she also helps maintain the automail when it gets broken.[21] Her parents were called into service as doctors during the Ishvalan Civil War and were killed while treating the injured. In the manga, they are killed by the Ishvalan Scar;[22] in the anime, they are killed by the State Alchemist Roy Mustang.[23] Winry is voiced by Megumi Toyoguchi in Japanese and Caitlin Glass in the English dub.
  • Scar (スカー Sukā?) is one of the few surviving Ishvalans. His real name is never revealed, but he is referred to as "Scar" because of the X-shaped scar on his face. Scar's right arm, which is tattooed with a rare transmutation circle, was given to him by his brother shortly before he died.[24] Scar believes himself to be an instrument of God, and kills State Alchemists using his alchemical skills, despite the fact that he believes alchemy is an abomination against the natural world.[25] Scar is voiced by Ryotaro Okiayu in Japanese and Dameon Clarke in English.
  • Father (?) is the main antagonist of the manga storyline. He was originally a small ball of shadows inside a round flask with the nickname of "homunculus" created with the blood of a man named Hohenheim. He goads a king into performing Human Transmutation, resulting in the destruction of the country Xerxes. As a gift for helping him, Father made Hohenheim immortal by rebuilding his body with half the souls of the population of Xerxes; he used the other half to create a body for himself in the likeness of Hohenheim. "Father" is the creator of the Homunculi and of the country Amestris itself, which, along with special alchemists he calls "human sacrifices", is a piece of a far-reaching plan.[15]
  • Dante (ダンテ?) is the main antagonist of the anime storyline. She is the leader of the Homunculi and made the first Philosopher's Stone with Hohenheim, Edward and Alphonse's father. Her desire to create another sets the events of the anime into motion.[17] As an old woman, Dante is voiced by Kazuko Sugiyama in Japanese and Cindee Mayfield in English; after taking over Lyra's body, she is voiced by Yumi Kakazu in Japanese and Monica Rial in English.

Terminology

Alchemy 
Alchemy within the Fullmetal Alchemist series is an advanced scientific practice. Unlike historical theories of alchemy, the alchemy of the series is essentially modern chemistry without traditional reaction mediums, and does not attempt to manipulate forms via their accidents; this principle, called Equivalent Exchange, means that an alchemist cannot create materials from nothing. Using a special inscription called a "transmutation circle", an alchemist changes matter in three steps: "analysis", understanding the physical properties of the substance to be transmuted; "decomposition", breaking the substance down into a rudimentary form; and "reconstruction", rebuilding the substance under the alchemist's direction.[26] These circles can be drawn on the fly or kept inscribed on a permanent medium; some can even be used as seals, such as the blood-written circle that Edward used to tether Alphonse's soul to a suit of armor.[27]
Human Transmutation 
A forbidden art in which one attempts to create a human who had died. Considered taboo for moral reasons and the consequences revolving around it, it takes something from the person who performs it, usually a part of the user's body.[28] However, instead of creating a human, the alchemist is taken to a place called the Gate of Alchemy, where he or she gains knowledge proportional to what was given up in the transmutation.[29]
Philosopher's Stone 
The Philosopher's Stone is a legendary stone said to allow the holder to completely bypass the law of Equivalent Exchange.[30] As with all things, however, to create a Philosopher's Stone requires the expenditure of raw materials: in this case, human lives.[31] In both manga and anime Philosopher's Stone is thought to origin from legend that mentions that a kingdom and its population were destroyed in order to create it.
Homunculus 
A homunculus is a human-like creature that carries pieces of the Philosopher's Stone inside it. They are named after the seven deadly sins and act as primary villains in the series.[32] In both the manga and anime, there are seven homunculi, but with a large number of differences, including their creation and identity. In the anime, they are a result of Human Transmutation and have a high resemblance with the human intended to be brought back to life; as such, they are weak when in proximity to any part of that human's original body. In the manga, they are creations of Father and do not have a notable weakness.
Chimera 
A chimera is the fusion of two or more different species into a single being created using alchemy. These creatures are seen as monsters by the general community, because the creation of a chimera is seen as most lowest form of alchemy by some.[33]
Amestris
Amestris (アメストリス Amesutorisu?) is the nation-state that serves as the principal setting of Fullmetal Alchemist. Amestris is ruled by a military dictatorship, headed by King Bradley, who holds the title of "Führer". An alchemist serving in a special branch of the state military under the direct command of the Führer is called a State Alchemist (国家錬金術師 Kokka Renkinjutsushi?). State Alchemists are selected by a series of examinations and are regarded as some of the most powerful and talented alchemists. The position of State Alchemist also holds considerable authority and influence, automatically being promoted to the rank of Major.[34] In both manga and anime, it is revealed that the military dictatorship was created in order to get sacrifices needed to create a Philosopher's Stone.
Ishval
Ishval (イシュヴァール Ishuvāru?), spelled Ishbal in the Funimation adaptation of the anime and in later volumes of Viz Media's adaptation of the manga, is a region of the Amestris nation. Natives of Ishval are characterized by their brown skin and red eyes. The Ishvalans feel the science of alchemy is a sin because it insults their God, Ishvala, by implying that humans can better His creations. At the start of the series, Ishval was recently attacked and annexed by the Amestris military to get human lives to create a Philosopher's Stone. Because of this attack, the land of Ishval is reduced to ruins and a barren desert.
Automail 
A kind of prosthetic, made from metal and linked directly to the nerves of the body.[35] Some forms of automail include ballistic devices or other enhancements.[36]

Production

As commented by Hiromu Arakawa in an interview, she became attracted by the idea of using the alchemy in the manga after reading about the Philosopher's stone. She liked it so much that she started reading books of alchemy, which she found very complicated due to the fact that some books contradicted others. She was attracted more by the philosophical aspects than the practical aspects.[1] For the Equivalent Exchange concept, she was inspired by the work of her parents who had a farm in Hokkaidō and always had to give all their effort in order to earn the money to eat.[37] Arakawas Self-portrait from Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 6. ...

Several social problems of the have been thought by Arakawa after talking to people who had suffered them, such as refugees, war veterans and former yakuza, or simply by watching news about those issues. Due to all those problems, Arakawa made that in the story, Pinako Rockbell took care of the Elric brothers after the death of their mother, as well as she made the brothers help people from all over the country in order to give an understanding of "family", in a larger sense of the world.[1] For other uses, see Yakuza (disambiguation). ...


When creating the fictional world of Fullmetal Alchemist, Arakawa designed it inspired after reading about Europe during the Industrial Revolution period, which she was amazed by how different were the people from different countries, regarding their culture, architecture and clothes. As commented by her, she was especially interested in England during that period and "added to it her own original flavor to make it into a fantasy world.[1] A Watt steam engine, the steam engine that propelled the Industrial Revolution in Britain and the world. ... For other uses, see England (disambiguation). ...


When the manga started being serialized, Arakawa had in mind how would the story end. However as the plot continued, she felt some characters were growing up and so she decided to change some scenes, therefore, some draws of the faces of the characters were improvised. Arakawa made the comedy in the manga to be very recurring as she thinks the manga is made for entertainment and so she tries not to focus in sad scenes.[37]


During the development of the anime, Arakawa let the anime staff work by themselves and also requested that it should have a different ending from the one of the manga as she commented that she would not like to repeat the same ending in both media, as well as to make the manga longer to work more in the development of the characters. When watching the ending of the anime, she was amazed about how different the Homunculi were from the manga and enjoyed how the staff speculated about the origins of the villains.[1]


Reception

As of March 2008, the Fullmetal Alchemist manga has sold over 30 million volumes in Japan.[4] The series is also one of Viz Media's best sellers, appearing in several polls.[38] The manga also appeared several times in the "USA Today Booklist".[39][40] The English release of the manga's first volume was the top-selling graphic novel during the year 2005.[5] Along with Yakitate!!

Fullmetal Alchemist has generally been well received by critics. Though the initial volumes were felt to be formulaic, critics noted that the series grows in complexity as it progresses. Arakawa was praised for being able to keep all of her character designs unique and distinguishable, despite them many wearing the same basic uniforms.[42] The characterization of the protagonist Edward balances between being a "typical clever kid" and "a stubborn kid", successfully allowing him to float between the series more comical moments and its underlying drama without seeming false.[43] Reviewers celebrated the development of the characters in the manga, with their beliefs actively changing during the story forcing them to grow in maturity.[44]

Fullmetal Alchemist has every right to be among the most successful properties to hit the States in recent memory. The narrative power of Edward Elric's story rivals that of any literature currently in print. The journey he takes is action-packed, but is also filled with moments of humor, success, failure, warmth, and despair. All these things come together to make a story filled to its considerable depth with realistic moments and characters. The precision in storytelling here is ridiculously good. Arakawa knows exactly where she is going from the very first page, and what an excellent first page it is.

Square Enix has released three RPG titles—Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel, Curse of the Crimson Elixir, and The Girl Who Surpasses God—and one fighting game, Dream Carnival, for the PlayStation 2; Bandai has released two RPG titles, Fullmetal Alchemist: Stray Rondo and Fullmetal Alchemist: Omoide no Sonata, for the Game Boy Advance and one, Dual Sympathy, for the Nintendo DS; and Destineer released a game based on the trading card game in North America for the Nintendo DS.[97][98] Of the seven games made in Japan, Broken Angel, Dream Carnival, Curse of the Crimson Elixir, and Dual Sympathy have seen international release; the others have not been released internationally.

Other merchandise

Action figures, busts, and statues from the Fullmetal Alchemist anime and manga have been created by leading toy companies. The primary of these companies are Medicom and Southern Island. Medicom has created high end deluxe vinyl figures of the characters from the anime. These figures are exclusively distributed in the United States and UK by Southern Island.[101] Southern Island has also released their own action figures in 2007 of the main characters Edward, Alphonse, Gluttony and Lust. These figures and a 12" statue were scheduled to release in 2007. Southern Island has since gone bankrupt, putting the figures on permanent hiatus.[102]
