Question: Brotherhood end/manga end?  
So, according to animenewsnetwork Brotherhood is 52 episodes long and will air the last episode on April 11. Does this mean the manga will end in April??? Or even March?????

I was wondering how long they'd make it. if you ask me, they'll probably end the series at a certain point of the manga plot and wait for the actual ending to animate the rest in a movie or OAVs. it's doubtful that the manga will end that soon

I thought it was 64 episodes and we worked out it would end in June (leaving the manga on chapter 108).

I can't be bothered to find the previous posts we had on the subject (lack of tags makes me sad) but I'm sure we had it all worked out last year sometime.

I don't think eight more episodes is enough to wrap up the EXISTING manga material left. And I don't believe that Arakawa can end the manga in two, or one, chapters.

So...now I'm confused.

I can't say that I trust ANN as an accurate source of information!

I keep hearing different numbers - some people are saying it will be 52 episodes, and others are saying 63 or so. So who knows. I doubt Brotherhood (and the manga) will end in April, though. There's just too much stuff going on to wrap everything up that quickly. And Brotherhood is nowhere near being finished - I just can't imagine all those chapters being packed into less than ten episodes. So I think it's more likely that it will go for about 63 episodes and let the manga have more time to finish (at least, I hope so, anyway).

It turns out, I could be bothered to find the previous post!

In this post, it was mentioned that there would be 63 episodes, which without breaks, would have finished on June 15th (with the manga on chapter 108).

I think that time scale is more realistic for both the anime and manga.

I'm currently suspecting the manga will end at chapter 108, so that sounds rather plausible to me.

...Of course, that would only mean about 4 months of FMA to go. ;_;

Oh good. I couldn't imagine how either could wrap up decently in that time.

they've been doing that, they only list a certain amount past the released episode names, that's why it lists 52 and not 63. if you look here http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=10216 it says 63 episodes

I think they've mentioned that Brotherhood and the manga are going to have different endings... can't remember where I read it.

i hope that is just a rumor since if there was going to be another anime only ending then why bother remaking the series to follow closer to the manga?
