So someone said there was a float in this year's parade to represent Fullmetal Alchemist.

I was playing FFVII occupied elsewhere while the parade aired so I didn't get to see if there was one or not.

Just wondered if anyone saw it or possibly had pictures. ^^

I'm looking up info on Google, but all I see is that there was a "Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi" float at the parade. I'll check again, I think. >>

I didn't see anything, and I sat through the entire telecast. The only thing Japanese in the parade was the Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi float...

Frankly, that joke of a cartoon show doesn't deserve to be a float in the Macy's Parade. Sadly, what appears at Macy's depends more on familiarity with the public, and not so much actual quality of the product.

Though that makes me wonder - do enough people actually KNOW about Amiyumi? How could they be so mainstream that they would appear in a Macy's Parade? oO'

I didn't see any Fullmetal Alchemist float. Me and my sister were saying that they should have an Ed baloon, then nobody could call him short.

Anyway, I didn't see Fullmetal Alchemist float but I did see the Puffy Amiyumi. -_-

In the Macy's parade? Hahaha, no they didn't. They had Pikachu and Puffy Ami Yumi, but no Hagaren.

I watched the whole thing and i didnt see a FMA float. If there was i would probably pass out from happiness.

If there was I'm sure someone would take a photo...

Yes sir, it was such a small float no one noticed it! Truly a accurate representation!

Ugh, I was in my room, and my mom called me down by saying, "Hey, there's Japanese people in the parade! Look!"

...I was sorely disapointed. I hate that freaking group AND their freaking show.

;_; They dooooo need a haragen one, right? That'd roxxor my boxxorz.

*agrees* I have such a hatred of them AND their show -__-; Isn't making a cartoon about yourself kind of...conceited-ish? And in English, no less, when they don't even speak it fluently? They have to have SEPERATE VAs for their characters, which is just silly >_>;

FMA deserves love, too...

Given what NBC's broadcast of the Macy's Parade is like, we should be glad there wasn't a Fullmetal Alchemist float -- Ed and company would have to share their stage with a second-rate, badly lip-synching celebrity, which NBC sticks on EVERY. SINGLE. FLOAT.

Would be cool to see an FMA float in *another* parade, though. My first-ever glimpse of Sailor Moon was a float in the Toronto Thanksgiving Parade, which at the time was taped by CBS and broadcast in America for the *American* Thanksgiving (along with parades from other cities).
