For those of you ditching the manga for this unnofficial sequal, keep in mind that the manga is continuing because the story is very different. There's a bunch of other characters, and at least one I can think of off the top of my head who isn't in the manga. And because of that, some of the humunculi are different.

But thanks for the news, I hope FMA 2 is really going to be made n_n I really wonder how it will be picked up. My guess is a whole new cast though....new main characters mixed in with older ones and mostly supporting characters...Becaus Ed and Al seemed pretty at peace with death. It'll be too odd without our familiar characters though.


This will be on the real world right?


dunno?*thinks about where the anime left off*...I suppose that'd make sense

New Fullmetal Alchemist TV Anime Series Confirmed

The wraparound jacket band on the 20th volume of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga will confirm on Friday that a new television anime series is in the works. A new anime series was a topic of much fan discussion for several months, but it was thrust into a more public spotlight last month when a management document was purportedly leaked from the BONES anime studio. The document listed Fullmetal Alchemist animator Yasuhiro Irie as "Hagane 2 kantoku" (Iron/Fullmetal 2 director).

After the purported leak, BONES President Masahiko Minami posted an official statement that said that no file with this same formatted information existed within the company. When asked about the possibility of a sequel to Fullmetal Alchemist or Darker than BLACK (another BONES anime), Minami told ANN, "It hasn't been decided yet. We are interested in doing them. As original science-fiction works, they were extremely fascinating. With these kinds of dramatic story lines, I feel that there's a lot we could do potentially."

Viz Media will publish the 17th volume of the manga version in North America this October, while FUNimation Entertainment released both the first television series and its theatrical movie finale.

I'd love and FMA 2! But it'd be hard to pick up the story from where it left off though.

First off, don't get me wrong here. I'm a die-hard FMA fan, so don't tell me otherwise after my rant please.

I. SERIOUSLY. AM. NOT. LOOKING. FORWARD. TO. SEASON 2.

Mainly I'm just super scared about it.
I mean, sure, the movie ending left a lot of questions such as "What happened to Winry?", "What did they all do after Al came across?"
But it's just that I've ACCEPTED that to be THE END. As in, the one and only end to the anime. I'm just really scared that the second season will be a complete mess, seem like filler... and basically just ruin the reputation of what FMA is NOW.
Agh.. actually. I don't really know what I'm saying anymore. I just can't wrap my head around the concept of FMA anime continuing!

What a pleasant surprise. Fullmetal Alchemist is one of my favorites and I always thougt it had room to continue. Considering how popular it is a new series doesn't surprise me.
