Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the second anime series based on the Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師, Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) manga series created by Hiromu Arakawa. It is a more direct adaptation than the first series, directly following the original events of the manga, whereas the original series deviated from the manga. In Japan, it is differentiated from the 2003 series by the inclusion of the English language title.

The series was directed by Yasuhiro Irie and written by Hiroshi Ōnogi. The series premiered in April 5, 2009 on MBS-TBS' Sunday 5:00 pm JST anime timeblock and ended in July 4, 2010.

Synopsis

After losing their mother, Edward and Alphonse Elric try to revive her using the forbidden science of human alchemy. However, alchemy operates under the theory of equivalent change and breaking the taboo of human alchemy carries a heavy price. Ed loses his left leg, and Al loses his body. Ed manages to seal Al's soul inside a great armor, at the cost of her right arm. Years later, Ed, now with two mechanical "automails" limbs, and Al, still trapped in the armor, burn down their home, each concerned for the other's happiness. Ed, who had a natural talent and ability for alchemy, becomes a nationally certified alchemist and is soon known everywhere as the “The Alchemist of Steel”. The true objective of both brothers is to search for any information about the legendary Philosopher's Stone, in the hope that it will allow them to recover their bodies. All your hopes rest on the mythical stone, which may not even exist.

Additional Voices

Animax Dub

A separate dub was presumably done for Animax Asia, as various roles have been listed on some of the actors resume's.

  • Muriel Hofmann as Edward Elric, Winry Rockbell, Riza Hawkeye, Izumi Curtis, and Lust
  • Lily Truncale as Alphonse Elric, Lan Fan, May Chang and Paninya
  • Matt Bailey as Roy Mustang
  • Mike Brooks as Alex Louis Armstrong

Notes

  • Unlike the Japanese version, the English dub retains most of the voice cast used for the original dub of the first series. Although for various reasons, there were recasts for a few roles.
    • As Aaron Dismuke had grown up since voicing Alphonse, (Dismuke was 12 at the time of recording for the original series) he was replaced by female voice actress Maxey Whitehead. Dismuke still appears in this dub, this time playing young Hohenheim.
    • John Swasey replaced Scott McNeil as Van Hohenheim, as McNeil is not a regular in FUNimation's voice cast. McNeil is based in Vancouver, though he has occasionally voiced in a few FUNimation dubs from time to time.
    • J. Michael Tatum replaced Dameon Clarke as Scar, as Clarke had moved onto his live-action career.
    • Jerry Russell replaced Brice Armstrong as Tim Marcoh, as Armstrong had retired in 2009.
    • Robert McCollum replaced Bill Townsley as Scar's Brother, due to Townsley departing from voice acting and moving to New York.
  • In the original Japanese version, The Truth is depicted as having the voice of whoever encounters him with a slight effect added to differentiate, which is more in line to its role as a literal 'part' of whomever it is engaging with. In the dub, Truth is voiced by Luci Christian, the voice of Wrath in the 2003 anime.
