To Challenge the Sun - Ep. 01: As children, brothers Ed and Al used the clandestine science of Alchemy to try the unthinkable- resurrect their dead mother. They failed, unleashing an alchemic reaction that ripped their bodies apart. Four years later, Ed and Al are combing the country for a rumored stone that could amplify their alchemy and bring their bodies back to normal. And it appears they may have found it-in a strangely prosperous desert village.
Body of the Sanctioned - Ep. 02: What is the meaning of a miracle? Or compassion? Is it right to leave a girl and her village in blissful ignorance, or take away all their comforts for the sake of telling the "truth"? These are the questions Ed and Al must face, as they battle against the false prophet Cornello, who is using the science of alchemy and parading it as acts of God.
Mother - Ep. 03: An old book takes Ed and Al down a painful spiral of memories. Childhood-- a time of war for their nation, when every week, news from the front lines could devastate the family next door. But Ed and Al had their mother, a pillar of strength who always made life okay. When she died, they would try anything to bring her back.
A Forger's Love - Ep. 04: On their way to Central City, Ed and Al hear of a man named Majhal living nearby - an alchemist who not only knew their father, but wrote to him about creating human life. Ed wants to learn from him, but Majhal has other problems: Rumors of a young woman ghost wandering the outskirts of his town, taking the souls of young girls.
