Perhaps I may have missed this somewhere. but has CR announced when exactly they will start streaming this?

They just recently announced that they obtained the rights or are obtaining the rights to this show.

Netflix just dropped it off their list, atleast in NA, so i am eager for CR to pick it up so i can finish watching it!

They're both really great though. The original is just it's own thing.

I hope they pick it up. I'm excited to actually be able to talk about an anime with other users for once. An anime that I know really well.

While Brotherhood is amazing, I personally just couldn't watch it all...I've tried two separate times, about a year and a half apart, and only made it to episode 37 each time...though I have watched the original and the movie.

Can't wait for it to stream though!

Unless Crunchyroll has a newer press release, I don't see a streaming date on the original PR:

- http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2016/07/01/crunchyroll-adds-fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood-to-streaming-library-plus-simulcasts-of-new-game-and-lots-more

Hopefully soon. I'd like to finish it up.

That's actually a good point to switch over. The original does that part of the storyline a lot better in some ways because they fleshed it out more. The overall plotline didn't really deviate until the halfway point (when it ran out of source material). Just watch episode 1 of brotherhood and skim through 2-10ish which covers the same part of the plot to pick out the timeline changes.

I didn't realize that Netflix had taken it down. I guess Crunchyroll now has exclusive rights to stream.

I think it more on Netflix has to come up with a deal with Aniplex. Netflix does have other anime that CR have also. Just a matter of time.

Yay... Too bad it is done forever. I'm not interested at all in the author's newest works and adaptions.

Because they haven't officially announced what date it starts streaming on CR, you're not really going to get a legitimate answer from anyone in the know.

My suggestion is, have a little patience.
