5. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Synopsis: The laws of alchemy are no joke. No matter how you put it you cannot obtain something without sacrificing something of equal value – those are the laws of equivalent exchange. Edward and Alphonse Elric learn this the hard way. Ed loses his leg and arm while Al loses his entire body while trying to bring their mother back. By the small chance of a miracle Ed managers to bind Al’s soul to a suit of armor. Years later Ed becomes a “state alchemist” in order to find a way to get their original bodies back. The main characters of the two shows are both willing to be ‘military dogs’ for a greater cause, realizing what exactly the true motives of the military are. Both contain a comedic atmosphere at times as well – and oh let’s not forget about the action!
