Crunchyroll Loves (Crunchyroll’s in-house streetwear brand) has launched a new collection for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. The limited edition line includes two long-sleeve T-shirts and four hoodies, featuring Ed and Al, as well as the Homunculus! Preorders are already open and will last until October 4, 2021, exclusively in the Crunchyroll Store. Check out 2 of the hoodies:
The anime by studio Bones has 64 episodes and is no doubt one of the classics. The franchise also had an older 51-episode run. However, the manga was not yet finished and so the anime had to stray from the source. You can watch FMAB on Crunchyroll.
The story goes:
The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo – human transmutation. Four years ago, two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al’s body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al’s soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist – the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.
From more recent news, there will be a mobile game, as well as a new manga from the FMA creator Hiromu Arakawa.
You can sport the new streetwear from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood if you preorder it from Crunchyroll until October 4!
