Scarred Man of the East is the second English DVD volume of the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime series, released by Funimation on April 5, 2005. The DVD contains four episodes:
- Episode 5: The Man with the Mechanical Arm
- Episode 6: The Alchemy Exam
- Episode 7: Night of the Chimera's Cry
- Episode 8: The Philosopher's Stone
The back of the DVD cover contains the following synopsis:
- "A serial killer stalks the streets of Central, searching for his State-sponsored prey. He is a refugee, a loner from a land scarred from the wounds of war, tortured by memories of a happier time. His mandate is from the heavens: exterminate all State Alchemists. This assassin believes it his duty alone to purge the world of the cursed Alchemists defying the natural order of his Master's almighty creation.
- His body is riddled with tattoos of alchemical symbols which allow him to use the ancient art for his murderous purpose. It is his curse, and he accepts this as his fate. If he must draw upon the taboo practice of Alchemy, then let it be to redeem his people and reclaim the land stolen by the State.
- Under these pretenses, he haunts the shadows and alleys of Central. He is fearless and faithful to his creator, a willing martyr for the countless many who fell during the war. Perhaps more than fate has brought young Edward Elric to Central as well, newly certified as a State Alchemist."
In addition to the textless songs, production art and trailers which regularly appear on Fullmetal Alchemist DVDs, this volume also contains Japanese commercials as well as character profiles for Maes Hughes, Gracia Hughes, Shou Tucker, Nina Tucker, Alexander, Bald, Basque Grand, Jean Havoc, Barry the Chopper and King Bradley.
