The 21st century pushed the anime industry to another level. Anime has developed over several years to accommodate several genres as well as numerous characters starring in thousands of TV shows and Movies. Some of the most popular anime characters include:
The young character starred in the TV series ‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood’ that graced the TV screens between April 2009 and July 2010. Elric, who is as a young alchemist prodigy, is primarily motivated to return his younger brother to his original body. His brother, Alphonse, was lost in a failed human transmutation.
