I just want to know what you guys think about this. Supposidly this information was going around because of a Bones Studios leaked document(even though they denied it), but when the 20th volume of FMA manga came out in Japan it was announced on the cover. No one knows what its going to be about. Whether or not it will take place after the movie, or if it will be a complete remake following closer to the manga. The only problem is the first 21 or so episodes of the current series already follows the manga, and after that it splits off from the manga and goes into its own story. SO the first season would be a big stupid repeat, so who knows. Maybe it will be a new series with Ed and Al as supporting characters. Its not even the same director, this is bad. I personaly love the series how it is, I just dont want them to completely ruin it. cry mad cry frown confused mad cry sleep

Yet another needless spin-off from an already wonderfully executed series.  Some manga purists will be claiming that this will be the anime version that "Gets it right."  It's just more Yen spamming in my eye.

Fullmetal alchemist was fine, guys.  OK, so maybe Roze didn't end up with Edward, but I'm fine with that now.  Leave it alone!

Hey pitt IM curious did you like the Conqueror of Shamballa? some people argued it ruined the series, i liked it though, i thought it was great, i mean its not the fairy tale ending everybody wants but niether was the end of the series, i think it tied it up nicely, but thats what makes it great, FMA is probably my favorite series, and i know everyones like " o its overated" i dont care its amazing

Winry's a much better match for Ed.  I mean, he has metal parts and she's a mechanic; they're perfect for each other.

Anyway, I doubt that they'd remake the entire series, especially not just to follow closer to the manga.  We already have the manga for that.

Some of the shine of the series goes away after they reveal what's on the other side of the gate.  I mean, that's the kind of Sci-fi twisty plot I'd expect in a star trek episode, not the culmination of an epic saga like FMA.  Since CoS is a continuation of the parallel Nazi universe it too loses some luster.  Also, the final battle is an absolute cluster fuck.  But the series is one of the very few examples I can think of wherin the awesomeness of the story as a whole makes up for a weaker ending.

>>Winry's a much better match for Ed.  I mean, he has metal parts and she's a mechanic; they're perfect for each other.

Booooo!  You won't sink my battle-ship.   Roze deserved someone with Ed's strength and loyalty.  IMO, She gets it worse than any other character (With the possible exception of Dog-girl).  I thought she would be a perfect match for Ed.

Now, I love mechanic chicks.  Gadget, Kaylee, that scene where Leia's trying to fix the Millennium Falcon.  These things all make me very fanboy.  So please understand what I am about to say:  Winry annoyed the hell out of me.  Every scene she was in all she did was go spastic, try to break something, flirt all over Edward and be an overall nuisance.  She couldn't even spy correctly.  Then, and now, I still think she was the weakest "Major" character of the series.  I'd rather Edward paired with Izumi or Risa...Hell even Sheska over her.  Thank god I no longer read fanfiction.

I love that episode.

A reboot of the series also means one thing is for sure.

On reflection...You know this is probably the only place in the universe where FMA is being discussed by three guys.

when you say weak ending, did you also think the series ending was weak, they actualy made a 8 min ova too(takes place after the movie), i dont know if you saw it or not, you can find it on youtube its called children, im not sure if its legit, but it is interesting
