Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa
Book DescriptionAlchemy: the mystical power to alter the natural world; something between magic, art and science. When two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, dabbled in this power to grant their dearest wish, one of them lost an arm and a leg...and the other became nothing but a soul locked into a body of living steel. Now Edward is an agent of the government, a slave of the military-alchemical complex, using his unique powers to obey orders...even to kill. Except his powers aren't unique. The world has been ravaged by the abuse of alchemy. And in pursuit of the ultimate alchemical treasure, the Philosopher's Stone, their enemies are even more ruthless than they are...

Book Review: Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa - Reviewed by GorgeL (19 Jul 2011)
Written by Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist chronicles Edward Elric and his adventure in finding a philosophers stone to restore his body. While a very simple premise, this volume doesn't exactly start with that aswell! In fact, it begins right at the middle of the story, leaving readers incredibly invested on what truly happened for him to lose his body.
The story while sounding simple, is actually incredibly deep. Uses of forshadowing are very prominent in this volume, and it pays to remember everything that occurs, to fully reap rewards of later volumes.
Drawn by Hiromu Arakawa, her artwork is simple and effective. Characters are never off-model, but can sometimes appear 'bloated' due to comical moments occuring throughout this volume. Backgrounds themselves are adequately drawn, and help to show the fantastic world of Amestris.
Overall, a very good start to what can be a fantastic series. While some readers may be put...
