Viral Fullmetal Alchemist Cosplay Brings the Series' Saddest Moment to Life

One surprising Fullmetal Alchemist cosplay has gone viral as one artist has brought the series’ saddest moment to life! Hiromu Arakawa’s original manga series will soon be celebrating its milestone 20th Anniversary, but while it’s been complete for some time now, the anime and manga releases are still held in high regard by fans as some of the most notable releases of all time. It’s not hard to deduce why as the series is home to some of the highest peaks of action, and some of the lowest and heartbreaking depths in all of anime and manga.

While Fullmetal Alchemist has plenty of huge moments that could qualify as the series’ most tragic reveal, but there’s hardly any argument that Nina Tucker and Alexander’s eventually chimera fusion and transformation is one of the series’ biggest. It’s become a meme among fans at this point for how these darling characters get such a twisted and tragic fate, and now artist Dr. Span Cosplay has gone viral with fans on TikTok for stirring up all of these feelings once more through some genius cosplay! Check it out below:

If you wanted to check out Fullmetal Alchemist for yourself, you can now find Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood streaming with Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and HBO Max. The series is officially described as such, “Brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric hoped to resurrect their mother’s corpse when they attempted human transmutation, but their reckless defiance of alchemy’s Law of Equivalent Exchange resulted in no miraculous reunion. Their experimentation with forbidden science plunged the boys into a hellish nightmare; half of Ed’s limbs were torn from his body, and Al awoke to discover his young soul transferred to a suit of armor.

There is but one way the Elrics can restore what was lost – find the fabled Philosopher’s Stone. In a land marred by war and persecution, where truth comes only with tragedy, they undertake their desperate search. Every step closer to the mythical Philosopher’s Stone brings the broken brothers deeper into the darkest shadows of reality. Sinful abominations, both unnatural and human, will try to keep the boys from their redemption – but the Elrics must forge ahead if despair is to be transmuted into peace.”
