There exist those with special abilities to manipulate objects and transform them into other objects called the Alchemists. However, this manipulation process comes at a price, since the basic alchemy rules state that something with equivalent value is needed to perform the manipulation.
The renowned alchemist Edward Elric loses his little brother Alphonse in an accident. Edward manages to contain his brother's soul in a large piece of armour suit, but by doing so Edward loses his arm and leg. And so the brothers set out on a perilous journey to regain their original bodies.
Louise Valliere is a second-year student at the esteemed Magic Academy High School, but all of her classmates call her 'Zero Louise'. While no one doubts her magic ability, it is just that all of the spells that she casts go wrong, usually with disastrous and explosive results. Rumour has it that none of the spells that she tried to cast have ever gone as expected, which is how she picked up her nickname — Zero.
One of the most important second-year student rituals is the summoning of a familiar. A familiar once summoned will stay with the magician for rest of their life. A mage's magical familiar can appear in the form of any creature — as small as a mouse, as a fearsome fire salamander, and perhaps even as a dragon for an exceptional mage. True to form, Louise's familiar summoning spell goes very wrong and pulls Hiraga Saito from his life as a high school student in Japan into the magic world. The ritual is sacred and once started, cannot be changed, so Louise accepts her fate and gives Saito a kiss (on the lips) to seal their bond. The other students take delight in teasing Zero Louise at having summoned an ordinary commoner as a familiar, but they have forgotten that familiars are magical creatures and by their nature — are never ordinary or common.
