Fullmetal Alchemist

By Hiromu Arawaka/Book Report by Josh Camp

The best comic book you'll ever read!

Edward and Alphonse Elric tried to resurrect their mother using alchemy, a mixture of magic, art, and science. They had the perfect theories, everything needed for human transmutation. But the resurrection failed. Al lost his body, and Ed lost his left leg. All to make the thing that would ruin their lives. Ed became certified as a state alchemist, but the title had its downsides. Ed and Al go on an amazing journey of strength, courage, and kneeing dudes in the face or hitting them in the face with a shovel.


Edward Elric and his younger brother, Alphonse. Ed is the midgety one and Al is the gigantic suit of armor.


This story takes place in the world beyond the "gate."


I learned nothing from this book.


The conflict is that Scar is trying to kill Ed. Also, Dante is trying to take Rose's Body and kill Ed.
