Full Metal Alchemist Vol. 01
Alchemy: the mystical power to alter the natural world, somewhere between magic, art and science. When two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, dabbled in these powers to grant their dearest wish, one of them lost an arm and a leg¢®¦ and the other became nothing but a soul locked into a body of living iron. Now they are agents of the government, slaves of the military-alchemical complex, using their unique powers to obey their orders¢®¦ even to kill. But their powers aren¢®¯t unique. The world crawls with evil alchemists. And in pursuit of the ultimate alchemical treasure, the Philosopher¢®¯s Stone, their enemies are even more ruthless than they are...
Full Metal Alchemist Vol. 02
In the aftermath of an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric became an ¢®¡Æauto-mail¢®¡¾ cyborg and his brother, Alphonse, became a living suit of armor. Now Edward is a state alchemist, roaming the land in search of the Philosopher¢®¯s Stone and the secret of ¢®¡Æbiological transmutation¢®¡¾ which may be able to change his brother and himself back to normal. But the government he serves has enemies. A deadly man with a scar is murdering every state alchemist in his path¢®¦and he has a good reason for vengeance...
Full Metal Alchemist Vol. 03
Accompanied by their blustering bodyguard Alex Armstrong, our heroes seek out a childhood friend: Winry Rockbell, mechanic extraordinaire, who can fix their battered "automail" bodyparts. A little glue and spackle, and they're ready to continue their quest for the Philosopher's Stone, both in the dusty stacks of the central library, and in the city's heavily-guarded alchemical labs. Before they find the stone's secret, they must face Number 48 and Number 66, souls sealed in undying metal and given a license to kill. But immortality is one of the least of an alchemist's powers¢®¦and a metal body is no obstacle to someone who controls the building blocks of matter itself!
Full Metal Alchemist Vol. 04
Edward Elric¢®¯s battle at the alchemical lab ends in disaster. But his enemies don¢®¯t want him dead¢®¦ they have other plans for him. As Edward recovers from his wounds, his brother Alphonse broods over the question that has gnawed at him since his fight with Number 66: is he nothing but a lifeless metal shell? With the Fullmetal Alchemist and his brother out of commission, Lust, Gluttony and Sloth are free to pursue their murderous agenda...except that the mystery man named Scar is back...
Full Metal Alchemist Vol. 05
Winry, Ed and Alphonse go south in search of Izumi Curtis, the master alchemist who taught the brothers how to use alchemy many years ago. But in the boomtown of Rush Valley, an encounter with a pickpocket turns them down a different path, in search of an auto-mail blacksmith whose handiwork is the best that Winry¢®¯s ever seen. Then the action flashes back to the past, to show how Ed and Alphonse first learned alchemy...
