Funimation gets Fullmetal Alchemist premium~  
Funimation gets Fullmetal Alchemist premium.

And they're going to make a "special" FMA-related announcement at Ohayocon later this month. I'm guessing they've already licensed the second series or they're going to re release the first one to blu-ray.

They're probably gonna announce that they already have the new series. Which. Really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone so I don't know why they'd make a big deal out of it, but it's FUNi, so.

I'm honestly not going to be surprised if they did indeed get it. They were going to get it at some point or another. And they love making big deals out of things like that.

My bet's something to do with the second series, since the first made them a metric shitload of money.

That said, I don't as yet know what they'll be doing with the series initially. And I'll be out of the country for when the announcement is made.

Meh... no one should be very surprised to be honest (considering I didn't watch the first series in English, I won't be watching the second one in English either :D).

Hey! This means we finally get an official version of those OVAs we all love (and, in the case of Hagaren Kids, cry over) so much! That's cool if nothing else. :) I hope that Funimation is going to announce that they got the rights to FMA 2 but it will probably just be them saying when the premium collection will be available. I don't know about anybody else but I'm hesitantly anxious about FMA 2. Will it be good, will it be bad, will it split the fandom - who knows. We'll just have to wait and see. :)
