It's 'jutsu' as apposed to 'jitsu'... this is an extremely common mistake when converting Japanese to Romanji, as 'jitsu' is mimicking the speech but 'jutsu' is the actual hiragana, but yeah. Hagane no Renkinjutsushi. ^.^

鋼の錬金術師, or はがね の れんきんじゅつし, or ハガネ ノ レンキンジュツシ xD The first is in kanji, the second in katakana, and the third in hiragana, and prolly not ever be written that way but I was bored and very easily amused playing around with internet japanese stuff.
(Well, you DID say in japanese, but didn't specify which way to say it...) =D

Except the second is in hiragana and the third is katakana. ^_^

oo;; You're right, you know! Gosh, my brain really isn't working tonight... I blame it on the java! Darn java xD
Lol, that's what I get for typing without thinking about what my fingers are doing, I suppose. xD

As stated above, and just a random translation note -- to the best of my knowledge, it simply means 'metal alchemist', not 'Full Metal Alchemist', but they officially have an English title for one reason or another, as well as the Japanese one (you can find it on a lot of the Japanese merchandising and the like). The Japanese seem to have a thing for the words 'Full Metal' right now... wonder why.
