BluRay/DVD News: Unaired (ie. Original) Anime Eppy + Fullmetal Alchemist Festival '09!  
c/p off ANN:

The ninth Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume of the ongoing Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood television anime series will bundle an unaired episode when it ships in Japan on April 21. The original story is included as a limited video extra along with episodes 31 to 34 of the television series. Like the first Fullmetal Alchemist television series in 2003-2004, the ongoing anime adapts Hiromu Arakawa's manga about two brothers who risked their bodies with human alchemy to unsuccessfully resurrect their mother.

The DVD of the live "Fullmetal Alchemist Festival '09" event will ship in Japan on April 28. At the November 11 event, many of the anime's voice cast members appeared for an onstage discussion panel, and they also performed live audio recordings of famous anime scenes and the four-panel strips from the original manga.

hey, has the seiyuu event been discussed here before? aww i should would LOVE to see what's on the DVD. i've seen some of the previous series' seiyuu events, i'm sure this one is just as precious with all the new big-time cast members involved. :)

So, is this like an entire, full-length episode, or is it another OVA?

...I wonder what the contents are, either way.

is this the first time a DVD release has a special ep extra?

...hopefully, the translated versions will carry the same thing? *crosses fingers*

And on another note, do you have a link to the full size of that picture? It's SO cute!

oh, that. it was off a quick google search for the seiyuu event :) that image is actually quite big and i just scaled it down here on this post for layout purposes, obviously :)

Okay, I'll see if I can find a copy of it, then. Thanks!

Original FMA Festival DVD is still out there
I have the DVD of the original FMA Festival from 2004 (Titled "Fullmetal Alchemist Festival: Tales of Another"), which is a 2 disc set--but the 2004 set is Japanese only with no subtitles, so if you don't understand the langugage you're going to miss out on a lot. However, the voice cast was wonderful and the language barrier didn't prevent me from enjoying it. Romi was wonderful, and there were live perfomances by Yellow Generation, Cool Joke, Sowelu and Anastasia and Veronica (who sang "Bratja' in Russian)
"Tales of Another" is pretty rare but occasionally you can get your hands on it.

Cool! I wonder if this unaired episode will be included on DVDs released here. Sure would be awesome if it is! :) I have a feeling that this Festival '09 DVD, should I ever be able to get a copy, will probably end up like the Tales of Another DVD I have - a cool thing to have but otherwise useless since I don't understand a word of Japanese. Love the pic btw! :)

Hi everyone! When I was in Japan for my exchange program, I was able to attend the seiyuu event. I regret not being able to post about it over here, though. I wasn't sure if anyone would appreciate my account of the event, due to my limited understanding of Nihongo. The event was held on November 1 in Pacifico Yokohama, and I blogged about it on my LJ. I'm lifting the friends-lock on that blog entry, in case anyone wants to read it. It's way too long, though: http://crystal-tiara.livejournal.com/60168.html.

If anyone wants to see the few pictures I have (not of the event itself, though... just pics of staff dressed in the military uniform and some merchandise), PM me. I haven't found the time to upload the pictures on Photobucket.
