I cannot believe I forgot about this. Shame.

I'm glad to hear people responded so well to the footage of the film. I feel pretty good about this. Hopefully Funimation/Aniplex can get it state-side for showings. If they did, I'd go in a heartbeat.

My only question: is Rie Kugimiya voicing Alphonse? That's the only thing I'm still worried about at this point.

Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist franchise remains one of, if not the most popular anime series in the last 15 years alongside Death Note and Shōnen Jump staples.

The way this is worded seems to imply that Fullmetal Alchemist is a Shonen Jump series, it's certainly a shonen manga, but it didn't run in Jump or any other Shueisha publication.

This is what I want to know too. They changed the voice for Koro sensei in the Ansatsu Kyoushitsu movies so there's the possibility they may change Al's voice.

I didn't think there was anything wrong with the wording.

I'm curious how far in the story the movie will get. I mean, this is a long series so it doesn't seem very possible to fit everything into two hours.

Wow reading this making me have my hope up even more! When I saw the trailer, I was already excited honestly..Wish I was there though to witness Ryosuke Yamada in person!! He's such a cutie! and he definitely fits Ed's role. I hope Funi or someone license it in the US and release it in theaters here when December hits!

How did you get in the mindset of playing a character that's experienced so much tragedy?

Yamada: For preparation, I obviously studied a lot of the anime and manga but I also took a lot of people's input and just let it come to me.

How does working on this film compare to working on the live-action Assassination Classroom film and can you compare Edward to Nagisa?

Yamada: Both works are from anime and manga but they are just so polar opposite characters. Nagisa is much more quiet and shy while Edward is much more manly, and outgoing.


Gad dang it, Yama-chan!

So that's why your Nagisa was so fricking meek. If you thought Nagisa was shy then you didn't actually read/watch the source material. Sure, Nagisa was quiet but meek & shy he was not.

I adore Yama-chan, his acting was really good as a kid, but nowadays it makes me sick sometimes...
