FMA-Brotherhood wins the race, it's official!  
In the race to be the first new anime to premiere on [adult swim] this year, the tickets I had on "Soul Eater" to win are now worthless.

Anime News Network and LA Weekly's TV blog have now confirmed: the English dub of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will indeed premiere on February 13/14 at 12 midnight Eastern/Pacific, with a rerun later that night at 4am Eastern/Pacific. At least the first 26 episodes will be shown on the network; the series is in the 40's in Japan, en route to a 63-episode series run (so far). (Per a recent interview at a recent convention, there will be at least 63 episodes of the show in total.)

This means it's appointment television once again for [adult swim] at midnight in about 1 1/2 weeks! :)

The best part is I'll be on heavy medication. The best way to watch FMA, ever.

Yeah I noticed it was on the adult swim schedule. Pity it's on a separate night than the Boosh. :( I wanted to see them back to back, just for the brain hurting shift between 70's retro-acid comedy and FMA B drama goodness....

Thank goodness for DVR. I never had much luck with VCR's . . .

Can't wait to hear Ling--and wonder who Aaron's playing--btw, have you heard Aaron's voice in the dubbed "Chibi Party"??

heeeeey exciting!

but question:

anyone know how FMA:B is doing in Japan? the last I heard (which was way before christmas) it was doing poorly. I'm guessing it's doing better now??

Damn. I figured, but it's still depressing as hell.

But thanks so much!

Curses! Oz pay TV no longer has Adult Swim. Just hafta wait for the DVDs, I guess. :\

Thanks for the heads up!

God, I hope the DVDs are out fairly soon after they get a US release.

I hope so too. *prays with your icon*

Maybe we should, like, send lots of emails to Madman. Or spam them with questions at conventions or something.

Idgaf about the other anime. Holy fuck I am so happy. FmA was really the only anime series that I ever invested any kind of emotion into. My sister and I never missed an episode of the original all those years ago. @_@
