    Only 50 damn episodes? Are they planning another original ending or will there be a second season? I can't see the full story being told in anything less than 100 episodes.
    Hum....maybe they wonīt animate the episodes that were already adapted from the manga?

    ...

    Yeah, i donīt see it either but from whatīve read itīs going to use the mangaīs plot.

    Don't think so. Even some of the early episodes diverge from the manga. For example in manga Ed and Al trained under Izumi for six months not six years, Shou Tucker got killed by Scar, Ed never met Barry the Chopper, the train hijacking incident never happened etc.

    Oh yeah.....well, if they are really adaptating the manga in this new series as they said, they could easily make a 50 episode first season and then make a second season to finish whatīs left of the manga.

    The train hijacking did happen in the manga. Hughes just wasn't there.

    On the length of the new series, I guess 52 episodes might work fine, if they speed up some of the earlier events. I mean, ok, it'll be a new adaptation, and we hope it'll be more faithful to the manga, sure, but still, to see again things we've already seen, as well as read in some cases, would be a bit boring. My guess is the episodes like the first ones with Rose will go on faster, hence taking less episodes. Also, we must take into account that cutting off the different frist anime storyline, there might be plenty of room for the new show to catch up with the manga ending - assuming it's really nearing the end right now.

    Rumors (from 2ch):

    1) The series will start out with an anime-original storyline, gradually transitioning back to manga-based content.

    2) The first few episodes will recap the first half of the original anime (correcting any changes made to the story), with an anime-original storyline thrown into the mix.

    Basis for these rumors:

    1) Isaac, who is an anime-original character, will (apparently) be a prominent figure in the first few episodes.

    2) All the pictures/trailers seem to indicate that the series will cover familiar ground at first (the Elric brothers’ attempted resurrection of their mother, Ed's alchemy exam, the assassination of Maes Hughes, etc.), before finally moving on to the new stuff.

    3) Keiji Fujiwara (Maes Hughes) is on the "main cast" list.


    The latest trailer, featuring "Uso (Lie)" by SID:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IX1lAY-zbN0

    Full voice cast:

    Romi Paku as Edward Elric
    Rie Kugimiya as Alphonse Elric
    Megumi Takamoto as Winry Rockbell
    Shinichiro Miki as Roy Mustang
    Fumiko Orikasa as Riza Hawkeye
    Kenji Utsumi as Alex Louis Armstrong
    Keiji Fujiwara as Maes Hughes
    Yuji Ueda as Jean Havoc
    Kenji Hamada as Vato Falman
    Kaori Nazuka as Maria Ross
    Hidekatsu Shibata as King Bradley
    Kenta Miyake as Scar
    Kikuko Inoue as Lust
    Tetsu Shiratori as Gluttony
    Minami Takayama as Envy
    Hiroyuki Yoshino as Kimblee
    Kouichi Yamadera as Isaac

    People reprising their roles:

    Romi Paku as Edward Elric
    Rie Kugimiya as Alphonse Elric
    Kenji Utsumi as Alex Louis Armstrong
    Keiji Fujiwara as Maes Hughes
    Hidekatsu Shibata as King Bradley

    (Lin, Father, Sloth, etc. aren't on the list because the staff hasn't finalized their picks for those characters yet.)

    Magazine scans:






    The guy in the trench coat is Isaac; you can see him in action in the trailer I posted above.


    That's all I've got for today, folks.

    ^Just seeing that pic of the "Father" already makes my day.

    At last, some good FMA anime to look forward to!

    Thanks, MGB!
