Plot idea: Nowadays there are in existence alchemists, those who learn and perform the art of alchemical transmutation—to change objects and transform one object into another. They've been bounded by the basic law of alchemy: so as to earn something you must sacrifice something of the same price. The protagonist is the well-known alchemist Edward Elric—also identified as the Fullmetal Alchemist—who almost lost his little brother, Alphonse, in an alchemical incident. Edward was able to attach his brother’s soul to a big suit of armor. While he did manage to save his brother’s life, he paid the horrific price of his arms and legs. For getting back what they’ve lost, the brothers start on a journey to search for the Philosopher’s Stone that is believed to enhance the powers of an alchemist hugely; however, in route, they start revealing a conspiracy that could risk the whole country, and they recognise the misfortunes brought upon by the Philosopher’s Stone.
