full metal alchemist filler

Full Metal Alchemist is a super fun sci-fi anime series that focuses on alchemy. The series first started back in the year 2003 and concluded after 1 year in 2004 with a total of 51 action-packed episodes. Now as for the fillers, Full Metal Alchemist (FMA) has a very low percentage of fillers, out of the total 51 episodes there are only 3 reported fillers and that’s not all as there are many more to come in the future.

Full-metal Alchemist although follows the original storyline from the Manga there are some changes when it comes to its anime adaptation and therefore, I would highly recommend you to watch all the fillers too as they, unlike other filler episodes, contribute to the storyline and help build up the plot of the anime storyline and with so little fillers it’s almost a no-brainer.


What is “Full Metal Alchemist”?

Full Metal Alchemist portrays the story of a world set in a fictional universe, a country of Amestris, where alchemy is the most practiced science and the ones doing it, are given major ranks amongst the government and the military as they could create anything they want using Alchemy following the laws stated by the government.
