Even if you’re not much of an anime fan, ‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood‘ and ‘My Hero Academy‘ are two shows you must have heard of. What’s common between these two great anime shows is that they are from the same animation studio. Apart from these two, you’ll be surprised to know how many of your favorite anime have been produced by Studio Bones. The studio was founded in 1998 by the staff of Sunrise and since then, it has taken the anime world by storm with some very well known titles that reflect the quality of content produced by the studio. Even to this day, many of their shows rank amongst the best anime of all time.
Every time they announce a new anime, most fans are willing to give it a shot knowing that even if the story is not good enough, the anime’s overall animation quality will always be top-notch. Now a studio that produces content so consistently cannot always come up with great shows. So considering that, we have jotted down some of their best works that should definitely be not missed out. You can stream most of these anime on Funimation, Crunchyroll or Hulu.
12. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (2009-2010)
‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood‘ is often referred to as the greatest anime show that has ever been made and all the hype around it is very well justified. It tells the story of two young brothers who try to use “human transmutation” to bring back their dead mother. But all of it goes freakishly wrong and in this taboo process of alchemy, Alphonse, the elder brother, ends up losing two of his limbs; while Edward, the younger one, loses his entire body and is forced to live as a trapped soul in a silver shield of armor. What follows is their journey to look for the Philosopher’s Stone which is the only thing that can help them regain their old normal life.
‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood’ proves that staying loyal to the source material can sometimes level-up an anime from being an above average show to becoming exceptionally great. It is one show that is almost close to perfection and can even be enjoyed by those who are fairly new to the world of anime. If interested, you can watch the entire series on Netflix.
