I hope they won't be charging a lot for this, since there's so little actual content. I've seen these shorts, and they're fun, but not really worth the price of a normal anime DVD.

Now if FUNi can announce an acquisition of FMA 2 I can die happy (y'know, after watching it 40 times and buyin' the full thinpak set... naturally). Anime catgrin

Kinda disappointed about no second season info. Still this is excellent that they are releasing this as a seperate DVD instead of bundling it with a season set like they did with the Shana OVA. I'm hoping for late summer so I can watch it with the new series.

And across the land, there came the sounds of much rejoicing, as it was a day of celebration for many a FMA fangirl and boy.

Very Happy

So...25 minutes of content? Doesn't seem worth it.

Doesn't matter. It's new FMA material- people will buy it... Including me. Corporate sheep or diehard fan? You decide! Laughing

Even though it'll be very short, I'll still buy it. I love this series too much to pass it up.

I have to agree with you, but I figure Funimation realizes this too, especially with their movements towards economical releases lately. They're not Bandai Visual.

I started flailing when I saw this, even though I already knew that Funi had the license for it.

I thought they'd save those for when they put the movie on Blu Ray.

I'll get it, but this better be cheap, or have extras coming out the wazoo.

And the extras better not just be "dub commentary" and interviews with such "talents" as Vic Mignogna, Chris Patton, and Mike McFarland. I want to hear from Seiji Mizushima, Romi Paku, Michiru Oshima, and more of the Japanese staff and cast.

So what are they up to with dubbing Alphonse's voice? Didn't Aaron Dismuke (hopefully thats his name and I'm not thinking of a different VA) have a drastic voice change since the original FMA? I can't help but honestly be curious.
