"Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" huh? Does this mean I have to stop calling the new anime FMA 2? *snerk* XDDDDD I personally don't care for subtitles but in this case I'll make an exception! :) The countdown is on! w00t! 21 days and counting till subtitles are here! Only 16 days till "Promised Day" gets here! XDDDD I can't wait! squeee!

I mean, technically the series original (I guess?) title is "Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Fullmetal Alchemist" but I suppose "HNR:FMA" might be a bit long? Or "Hagaren:FMA"? o.o;

There's nothing wrong with calling it Hagaren:FMA. I kinda like it! :) Makes you wonder what they'll shorten Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood to. FMA:BH? O_o? That just looks so weird! :)

I think the name sounds cool! A '2' at the end would've been laaaammmmeee, but that makes it cound more new series-ish! 8D
