New Fullmetal Alchemist TV Anime Series Confirmed

Announcement to be made on Hiromu Arakawa's latest manga volume

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.

New FullMetal Alchemist Confirmed


Last month, rumors came out that a new FullMetal Alchemist series was in the works, due to supposed leaked documents. But then Bones came out & said the papers were fake. However, they didn't outright deny it either, & MoonPhase was reporting that they had received a trustworthy tip several months earlier saying such a series was coming up.

Now MoonPhase is back & reporting that a new FullMetal Alchemist TV anime series has finally been officially confirmed, according to the latest manga volume in Japan. The second series will supposedly start airing in April 2009 in Japan & run for a year, making it the same length as the original series. The old rumor that the new series will follow the manga's storyline more accurately also seems to be holding for the time being as well. Though considering the first half of the original FMA anime was pretty close to the manga as is, I wonder how they'll avoid being derivative in respect to that part of the story.

I still don't get it (maybe because I don't read some posts) but this new series will be from the beggining of the anime, somewhere in the middle, or after the end

wow that's great! I wonder how they will continue the series. I haven't read the manga but I heard it was different from the anime. Plus if a second series is confirmed then we can assume the movie as a side story. I wonder how it will turn out. Something to really look forward to.
