They will most likely slap it on as an extra with the movie.

An extra with the movie or even an extra with DVD/Blu-Ray set #5?

It's short on episodes (at only 12 while the others have 13), so loading up on trailers for the movie would be an apropos route to take. Vic, Maxey, Caitlin, I guess Chris Sabat, and whoever the hell they use for the interviewer can pull this off in a little over a month, easy!

And if Trigun: Badlands Rumble can get a theatrical release, this will too, and be a LOT more widespread! (But why so many showings of the sub over the dub quite frankly baffles me...)

How original. A joke about how Al is mistaken for the Fullmetal Alchemist and how Ed gets angry about it.

Never seen that before.

It's cute and funny that we get to have a one on one interview with the main stars of the film and I hope we get to see more of this in the future.

Funimation, when the movie is released, please get this extra and dub it over because I think Edward and Alphonse definitely need a long overdue interview with Hollywood!

No! Not Hollywood! Anything but Hollywood! Wink

Can you even imagine a live-action Hollywood retelling of FMA? On the one hand, the story has a fantastical, but for the most part, Western based setting. On the other hand, it has a complicated plot with character development and depth! Hollywood can't handle that. They'd probably just make Ed emo and Al a robot.

A robot that can blow things up... (Hey, does anyone know where I can send a script outline to Michael Bay? Twisted Evil )

@Agent355

I was only being humorous! Besides, I was talking about the idea that when anime movies based off long running/popular anime/manga franchises come out, they should take it all the way and make fun interviews with the main cast of characters and asking them their personal feelings on what was it like working in the movie, their relationships with the other characters, and so forth.

When was the last time we ever get to see our favorite characters being interviewed about what shows/movies they are involved in? This small featurette is the first time I ever saw something like this.

As for FMA going Hollywood, I am intrigued and interested to see how it will work because FMA has a great story and a huge great cast of characters that all audiences should see but knowing Hollywood, the chances of it being screwed up is pretty high! Plus, I don't think Michael Bay will interested in doing FMA since it's set in an alternate past and not in the present or even future. Knowing Transformers, maybe he'll go for the mecha genre instead. Can you imagine what he will do to Code Geass? Lelouch will become more of a pimp than he already is!

The idea of a Hollywood blockbuster Code Geass is hysterical! It has tons of guns, robots and explosions, so it'll fit right in!
