Dub OP  
First of all, I *LOVE* this new layout! Props to powercorrupts for an amazing job.

Anyway, from the L'arc En Ciel's profile page on the Otakon website:

“FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST” will begin airing on Cartoon Network in November 2004 with the L’Arc~en~Ciel song as the theme song.

So does this imply that Ready Steady Go will be the OP for all 51 episodes on CN? I bet that's the case because:

1. It's too expensive to pay royalties to four singers (or eight if you count the ED)

2. L'Arc en Ciel's the only singers from FMA that have an album released in America

3. The L'Arc En Ciel opening was the one posted at Funimation's site when it first opened

I don't mind, Ready Steady Go is my favorite OP and unlike #3 and #4, it's spoiler free. Still, the multiple OP's were great since not everyone liked Ready Steady Go.

I'm thinking there may be only one ED too, though this might be tricky since the first two were sewn into the last few seconds of the show. Y'know, I kinda miss that effect, too bad they stopped doing it w/ #3 so they could add more commercials. :P

Yeah, it's been confirmed already that Ready Steady Go will be the only opening they'll use for the entire series. ^^;;

It'll be on Cartoon Network...? ;_____; I'm-sad-now. I wish I lived in the States so I could squee over being able to see FMA on TV. XD

All right! Ready Steady Go was my favorite OP for the longest time. (Then REWRITE came out and seduced me with it's fast beat and catchy guitar.)

Hmm...I liked Ready Steady Go but then, but then Rewrite came along and then..well..I just don't listen to it as much anymore >>;..

I wonder though, what if after all the money they get from this franchise if they'll buy the royalties for the other OPs and EDs. That would be nice. (It'll be popular here no doubt about it o_o)

Read Steady Go is, IMO, the best out of all the ops anyway. I think its a good choice for tv broadcast...and the fact that i love L'arc En Ciel isnt a factor. ^^ Its just catchier and fits the action theme of the anime more. Its easier to get someone to like the anime with that opening i think.

Im very happy that Funimation got it instead of ADV. Otherwise...it would be appearing only on DVD or that PPV anime channel.

Funimation has been doing very well with its TV airing on CN (Blue Gender and Detective Conan are pretty much uncut). Their voice actor pool needs to increase, but overall, im very happy.
