The nice thing about this particular manga is that it doesn’t overstay its welcome, as author and artist Hiromu Arakawa’s full series ran for 108 chapters and was collected in 27 volumes. The core plot follows the alchemist brothers Alphonse and Edward Elric as they travel the land and look for clues to the location of the Philosopher’s Stone, an object of legendary power that they believe can help restore their bodies after their disastrous attempt to bring their mother back to life. While Edward lost half his limbs in the catastrophe, his younger brother Alphonse was left without a body and his soul now resides in a massive suit of armor.

Edward joins the state military after he recovers and is fitted with mechanical prosthetics, but it’s not long before the duo discovers a sinister conspiracy that reaches all the way to the top of their government and beyond. Throw in deadly adversaries, shocking revelations, and a world on the brink of war, and you’ve got a recipe for a thrilling adventure.
