  1. Wolf Rain

    Wolf’s Rain takes place in a post-apocalyptic time when much of the world has been ecologically devastated in a form of fimbulwinter and most people live in poverty. A legend is told in the “Book of the Moon” that wolves are mystical beings who came to the world from a place called Rakuen (Paradise), at the dawn of time. It is also said that, in the future, wolves will, with the help of a mysterious woman called the “Flower Maiden”, a being created from the essence of lunar flowers, find a way to return to paradise and in doing so, bring about the end of the world. This legend is difficult for most to believe, though, because wolves were thought to have been hunted to extinction nearly 200 years before. Some wolves have survived, though, and have been coexisting with humans right under their noses. The wolves have a way of presenting themselves as being human to other humans, thus they can blend into human society with relatively little notice. This ability is in no way shapeshifting; it is a mental trick, an illusion.

    Fullmetal Alchemist
    Edward and Alphonse Elric were children living in the rural village of Resembool in the country of Amestris. Their father, a talented alchemist, had left home when Edward was very young and Alphonse was still an infant. Years later, their mother, Trisha Elric, died of a terminal illness. After their mother’s death, the two boys decided to attempt to revive their deceased mother using alchemy. They studied alchemy with a teacher and then used their father’s books and notes that he had left behind to recreate a human transmutation circle. However, this attempt failed, costing Edward his left leg and Alphonse his entire body. In a desperate effort to save his brother, Edward sacrificed his right arm to affix his brother’s soul to a suit of armor. After that, Edward’s left leg and right arm are fitted with two sets of Automail, a type of advanced prosthetic limb. In the original Japanese, the term “Fullmetal” is used to describe a person who is stubborn. In the series it is often mistakenly attributed by minor characters to Ed’s automail arm and leg, or Al’s armor body.

    A State Alchemist by the name of Roy Mustang arrives during the failed human transmutation in response to letters the boys had sent out seeking information about their father (in the hopes that they could get the attention of their father so that he would come home). (Note: This event occurred differently in the manga. In that version, Mustang was in charge of recruiting new State Alchemists after the disastrous events of Ishbal caused many State Alchemists to leave the military service in disgust. A typo in the military records sent Mustang to Risembool in search of “Edward Elric, age 31.” He was dismayed to find a crippled 11 year old instead, but wound up making the recruitment offer anyway.) After seeing their skill at alchemy, Mustang suggested that the way for the two boys to achieve their goals would be to become State Alchemists and work for him. Spurred on by the man’s proposal, Edward set out to become a State Alchemist, enabling him to use the resources available to State Alchemists to discover a way to restore what he and Alphonse had lost. The brothers eventually learn of the Philosopher’s Stone and set off in search of it as a means to restore their bodies. Along the way they discover secrets about the Philosopher’s Stone they never wanted to know; and, find other people who seek it as well, doing whatever it takes to get their hands on it.

    Both are great animes

  2. wolf rain…
    i think…
    it is mainly a story about a group of wolfs that searching rakuen and flower, i guess.

  3. Wolf’s Rain:
    In some distant future, it’s common knowledge that all wolves have been extinct for 200 years. However, it seems this is false as wolves have not disappeared but rather have taken human form. Kiba, a lone wolf, wanders into a city, trying to sniff out the Lunar Flowers that are supposed to lead whoever follows the scent to paradise. The source of the smell is Cheza, a girl who sleeps in what appears to be suspended animation in a lab. She and the wolves are drawn to each other, and Kiba hopes to find paradise once he finds the source of the scent of Lunar Flowers. However, once Kiba finds Cheza, she is kidnapped by a mysterious person called Darcia, and his search begins anew. Before he leaves the city, he meets 3 other wolves, Tsume, Hige and Toboe. All four wolves have very different personalities and ideas, and their friendliness towards each other is a little rough around the edges. However, they soon band together to continue to search for paradise.

    Full Metal Alchemist:
    After losing their mother, Alphonse and Edward Elric attempt to bring her back using the forbidden science of human alchemy. However, alchemy operates on the theory of equivalent trade, and breaking the human alchemy taboo carries a heavy price. Ed loses his leg, and Al loses his body. Ed is able to seal Al’s soul inside of a huge suit of armor, at the cost of his arm. Years later, Ed (now with two mechanical limbs) and Al (still trapped in the armor) leave their childhood home, each brother concerned with the other’s happiness. Ed, who has a natural talent and skill for alchemy, becomes nationally certified and is soon known everywhere as the “Fullmetal Alchemist.” Their true objective is to search for any information on the fabled Philosopher’s Stone, hoping it will allow them to regain their old bodies. All of their hopes rest with this mythical stone, which may not even exist at all. However, the brothers soon learn that they are not the only ones after the powerful stone.

  4. Fullmetal Alchemist

    Two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, lived in small town Resembool with their mother, Trisha Elric. Their father, Hohenheim Elric, left them when both boys were very young. Trisha died when Ed was 11 and Al was 10. They attempted to bring her back with forbidden alchemy: a human transmutation. In the process, which failed, Ed lost his left leg and Al lost his entire body. Ed then traded his right arm to bind Al’s soul to a suit of armor. Now, they travel the land in search of the Philosopher’s Stone, the legendary amplifier that may just be able to return their bodies to normal. Their childhood friend Winry and Granny Pinako, whom she has lived with since her parents died in the Ishbalan War, fitted Ed with automail limbs. The homunculi try to stop them, and corrupted military is always there to drag them down, but their bond of brotherhood pulls them through all hardships to the very end.
