Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist by Ritalin

The Law of Equivalent Trade dominates the actions of Edward Elric, age 15, and Alphonse Elric, age 14. In order to gain something, one must present something of equal value, so says the Law. Ignoring these laws after their mother passed away from an illness, Ed and Alphonse researched their runaway father’s studies on the forbidden techniques of human transmutation to try and bring their mother back to life. The result: Al lost his body and Ed lost an arm and a leg. During their recovery, Colonel Roy Mustang, the Flame Alchemist, contacted them to tell the brothers to take a test that allows them to become Nationally Certified Alchemists. Ed does so, and learns of a Philosopher’s Stone that breaks the laws of alchemy. By obtaining this stone they can return to their normal bodies and a normal life. However, getting their hands on this legendary stone is no simple task.



NieA_7 is about Mayuko, a poverty-stricken student with many part-time jobs as to pay for her apartment and fooding. The apartment is above a bathhouse that receives little profit and is in constant demand of new ways to bring in the customers. Adding to this stress is an under alien named NieA, who is an “under seven” in the alien ranks (in other words, a nobody) that lives in Mayuko’s closet. NieA is constantly building UFO’s out of junk found and mooching off Mayuko’s minuscule amount of food. The relationship between NieA and Mayuko doesn’t appear to be a friendly one, instead more of one about slight tolerance between the two.
