Seen by critics as a practically perfect work, FMAB is an example when we talk about character development and good story pacing.

To retrieve what was taken, they embark on a journey to discover the secrets of the “Philosopher’s Stone”, which can help them as they face diverse challenges.

A fun, impactful trajectory that captures the viewer’s attention in each episode: the combination of all this makes Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood be one of the best animes of all time.
