New Fullmetal Alchemist's 9th BD/DVD Adds Unaired Anime in Japan
posted on by Egan Loo
The ninth Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume of the ongoing Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood television anime series will bundle an unaired episode when it ships in Japan on April 21. The original story is included as a limited video extra along with episodes 31 to 34 of the television series. Like the first Fullmetal Alchemist television series in 2003-2004, the ongoing anime adapts Hiromu Arakawa's manga about two brothers who risked their bodies with human alchemy to unsuccessfully resurrect their mother.
The DVD of the live "Fullmetal Alchemist Festival '09" event will ship in Japan on April 28. At the November 11 event, many of the anime's voice cast members appeared for an onstage discussion panel, and they also performed live audio recordings of famous anime scenes and the four-panel strips from the original manga.
Funimation began streaming the television anime series in North America last April, and it will release Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Part One on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on May 25. The Blu-ray Disc version will be based on "HD masters of FMA: Brotherhood from Japan."
