Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Based on Hiromu Arakawa’s manga Fullmetal Alchemist, the Japanese anime television series Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (Japanese: Fullmetal Alchemist, Hepburn: Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) was produced.
The series is directed by Yasuhiro Irie, written by Hiroshi nogi, and scored by Akira Senju, and it was produced by Bones. After the 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist anime series deviated from the manga’s plot to tell its own story due to a lack of available adaptation material, the current series was conceived in an effort to create a faithful adaptation that directly follows the entire storyline of the original manga.
In 2008, production began on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. From April 2009 until July 2010, MBS-TBS aired all 64 episodes of the show. From February 2010 until September 2011, Adult Swim aired the series with an English dub when Funimation licensed it for the region.

Critics praised the finales for their action sequences and moral lessons, as well as their fidelity to the manga and the fact that they included new characters to the story that weren’t in the 2003 anime.
