If you grew up on anime, you’re likely familiar with the popular series Fullmetal Alchemist. If you are, there’s some good news for you, taking shape in the form of a lovely new live action film.
After the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood series ended, perhaps some fans thought all hope was lost. But the time has come, as Edward and Alphonse Elric dive into their mystical world of equivalent exchange once more.
For those unfamiliar, the story of Fullmetal Alchemist takes you to a world where characters are able to blend elements using transmutation circles as well as resources of equivalent value to exchange for newer objects and weapons.
The main character, Edward Elric, and his brother Al are trying to find some answers to their lives and the dilemmas they face.
The secrets of this mysterious alchemy are explored as the main characters attempt to come to grips with the reality of equivalent exchange, and its true meaning.
As of now, the live action film for Fullmetal Alchemist is slated to launch sometime next year. If you’re interested in the original series, find both the classic version as well as Brotherhood on Netflix. But remember that Netflix is a paid service. Even in real life, all things are equivalent exchange!
