Fullmetal Alchemist takes place in a fictitious universe, much like Pumpkin Scissors. It focuses on two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, using alchemy in an attempt to resurrect their dead mother. However, there is a law of equivalent exchange and the brothers only realize this after attempting human transmutation, which is a forbidden act in alchemy. As a result both brothers lose something of their own (Edward, being his left leg, and Alphonse his physical body). After hearing about a philosopher’s stone that enables an alchemist to overcome the law of equivalent exchange, the brothers then meet Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye and Maes Hughes and find themselves caught in a conspiracy filled with history and war.
Much like Pumpkin Scissors, the military themes and gun warfare play out well in the anime, the only difference being the use of alchemy. In Fullmetal Alchemist, both Eric and Alphonse go against the Homonculus, just like how Section III goes against the empire. Another similarity with Pumpkin Scissors, is also the use of weapons in Fullmetal Alchemist, mainly guns and tanks in this case. Both anime take place in war eras, thus the use of gun and tank warfare is rather common. The next similarity is how both anime usually split their army into special divisions, like how Pumpkin Scissors has Section I, II and III, Fullmetal Alchemist has the Briggs Army, Eastern Army and State Alchemist (coincidentally or not, both anime consist of three divisions).
Oland displays violence in alter ego form, which is similar to Edward, as he often resorts to violence rather than negotiation to solve a problem. The second similarity we see here is how Oland seems to be like Alphonse when he is in his original form. Alphonse adores and displays affection towards small cats, and Oland also likes to feed and take care of stray cats that congregate at the bridge near his home. Fullmetal Alchemist shares a mix of comedy, action and military combat like Pumpkin Scissors does, however it focuses more on the development of the brothers instead of the other characters throughout the series.
