Spy x Family and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Connection Explained!
The new superhit anime, Spy x Family has had a great run, as fans have been going ga-ga over Anya’s cuteness this entire year. Yor’s fierce protective demeanor as a doting mother and Loid’s eagerness to be a good father have also been topics of discussion. Now, it seems that the tone has undergone a slight change.
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is one of the most popular manga and anime out there. The story centers around the Elric brothers, who live in a world where humans can use alchemy for different kinds of spells.
In this tale, the character of Nina Tucker played a crucial role in shaping Edward’s psyche, which even helped him in choosing the right thing when he faced Truth. Nina was fused with her Pyrenees dog Alexander by her psychopathic father, Shou Tucker, who had previously conducted a similar experiment that resulted in the death of his wife. When Edward and Alphonse got to the Chimera version of Nina, her state couldn’t be reversed, and it’s heartbreaking.

Spoiler Alert: Spy x Family
Spy x Family viewers will be eerily reminiscing about the episodes that showcase the happy bond between Nina and Alexander and her rotten father’s idea of life as a maniacal State Alchemist.
In the first episode of Season 2, we see Anya encountering a Pyrenees dog which will surely remind you of good ol’ Alex. Anya follows this dog as Loid discovers a plot to assassinate an official visitor Minister Brantz from Westalis.
A terrorist group led by Keith Kepler hopes to kill the influential figure using a group of intelligent and highly-capable dogs who were experimented upon for the sake of “Project APPLE.” This may be a Fullmetal Alchemist reference, and fans believe they are connected.
The episode ends with Yor confronting the “kidnappers” after being unable to locate her at the venue where the pet fair was held. What happens to the doggie is left ambiguous for now. You’ll have to wait a week more; we can only hope he gets better treatment than Alexander.
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Based on the bestselling shonen manga (from 2001 to 2010) conceptualized by expert storyteller Hiromu Arakawa, FMAB taught us valuable life lessons that will stick by us through thick and thin. The two Elric brothers had a multitude of experiences but triumphed against most of the corrupt Homunculi in the end.
Both the series and the animated film were produced by BONES (known for My Hero Academia, Wolf’s Rain). The manga maintained a format that read like a rollercoaster, going from humorous and light-hearted to dark and existential in seconds.
Spy x Family: A shonen manga created by Tatsuya Endo (early in 2019), Spy x Family got an anime adaptation produced by Wit Studio and CloverWorks.
