It's PG-13 for violence and swearing and stuff...but Funimation already liscenced it...our Anime Club at my school used to show it but since Funimation liscenced it...well...
But since you got LastExile, I'm thinking about it... (Since I never actually finished it...)
Btw, my avatar is from the FMA manga and teh GIF image is from the FMA 3rd opening.
Fullmetal Alchemist has both Manga and Anime. Fortunately, FMA manga has not been liscenced yet.
Here's a brief summary: (taken from: fullmetal-alchemist.com)
Imagine a world in which Alchemy is not only possible, but used frequently. Alchemy, though, is a science, and with all sciences there are laws that must be followed. Welcome to the anime, Full Metal Alchemist. The story begins about two brothers, Alphonse (left) and Edward (right) Elric. Ever since they were young they had practiced the science of alchemy. You follow their journey of being alchemists and their quest to regain that which they have lost.
Their father was a well recognized alchemist, which is probably where their knack for it comes from. However, when they were young their father left, and they remained in the care of their mother. One day their mother died, and in their innocence and ignorance, they attempted what was forbidden, human alchemy.
What happened next, they were obviously not prepared for, and in the aftermath the brothers lost more than just their mother. In the freak accident Alphonse loses his body, and in a moment of panic Edward ties his brother's soul to a piece of armor. Edward himself loses an arm and a leg, a costly reminder of what has happend.
The story begins and details the brother's journey to find a alchemy amplifier so that they may return to their normal bodies.
