Fullmetal Alchemist Volume One by Hiromu Arakawa

Title: Fullmetal Alchemist


Author: Hiromu Arakawa


Published: Viz Media LLC, 2006


Series: Volume One, Fullmetal Alchemist


Summary: Dabbling in alchemy carries a price. When brothers Edward and Alphonse played with the mystical power to alter the natural world, they both paid dearly. One lost an arm and a leg; the other became a soul locked into a body of living iron. Now these siblings are slaves of the evil military-alchemical complex, using their unique powers for dire purposes. (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Fullmetal Alchemist is a really cool manga. I've heard so many good things about it that I decided to read it for myself. I must say that I quite enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist.


The story line of Fullmetal Alchemist was really engrossing.  I found myself wanting to know more about what was going on with the two characters and basically, I just thought the whole story was set up really well and I look forward to reading more of the series.


The illustrations were pretty awesome.  They're definitely engaging and add to the entire story.


I'm intrigued by the two main characters. I'd like to know more about them and their back story and I look forward to it.


Overall, I believe that Fullmetal Alchemist is a great manga to check out, if you're a fan of science or alchemy and manga then I think you'll definitely enjoy Fullmetal Alchemist.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of the series! :D

    P.S- You should read the Fruits Basket manga and watch the anime. It's so freakin' heartwarming and incredible.
