Why This Must Be Read: Winry Rockbell is an adult with her own problems, in that she's secluded and has no real life. However, she's needed by the military, as she has something known as 'perfect blood' - she heals from any disease. Now someone is threatening her, and the military assigns her a bodyguard - a man named Edward Elric, who's a military assassin.
So, yes, this is very much an alternative universe of FMA, taking place more or less in modern times. It's a very enjoyable read, and you don't need to know much (if anything) about FMA to read it, it's that far off of the source material. The characters are a great deal of fun, and the storyline is very enjoyable, along with the mystery behind who is actually the threat to Winry.
