Fullmetal Alchemist 1-27 by Hiromu Arakawa

5 stars
One of the first manga series I purchased. *sniff*
 A truly brilliant series, that is creative, funny, and spunky.

FMA, is one of my all time favorite manga series, that I own personally. All 27 volumes! Now if you're confusing this manga for a sad tale with lots of death, you're thinking of the anime, Fullmetal Alchemist, and need to watch Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood,
 that one follows the manga more accurately than it's predecessor.

Two brothers set out on a journey to right their wrongs. During an
 illegal alchemy experiment gone wrong, Edward Elric loses his arm and leg, and Alphonse loses his entire body, and is tied to a suit of armor by a rune done in blood. Edward becomes a dog of the military in order to get the research funds and information he needs in order to help Alphonse and himself get their original bodies back.

Along the way we run into many interesting characters, some offering friendship, memories, and a hand to help you up when you fall. We also eventually get a more detailed back glimpse into the boy's back story in volume 6 and possibly 7.
The villains are quite villainous, powerful, and intriguing and make for a powerful dark side to this series. If you haven't picked up this one yet, get to it cuz  
you're missing out on a really good mind blowing journey!
