Just curious here...  
This discussion came up twice today in my irc channel.

The movie which isn't supposed to be out until *next* year, supposedly takes place 2 years after this series ends. What about what happens in between all that time?

See the biggest difference between US cartoons and anime that really stands out is when the Japanese decided 'so-and-so anime will be X-amount of episodes long' that's all you're gonna get. No matter how big the fanbase is, or how many requests they get, they really stick to their decisions on cut-off amounts.


Knowing where in the story the movie takes place, and knowing there's only 5 episodes left. It kinda makes you wonder if maybe there would be something in between, to answer the questions and fill in the gaps.

...wouldn't it be nice? Ya know.... another 40 weeks of FMA leading up to the movie? ^_^

How about they do an OA--*is hit by a brick or two...or five-hundred*

...Ow. x_o;.

Or maybe a 2nd se--*is pelted with rocks*

ow. ow. ow....

(The movie is planned for Summer of 2005. Says so on the anime site =) )
Perhaps what happened will be covered in the movie? (Like episodes 3-12 all over again)

You know, I don't think I could take any more eps. I'm already impatient for it to be over because I can't stand the stress every week.

I know what you mean:


I'm half relieved that I'm not watching it during the school year (I got into it near the end of the year, so I didn't have to wait for cliffhangers since I needed to download them all XD). At least not very long in the school year. I'd break down in the middle of class.

Teacher: How much Carbon is in the human body.
Everyone else: *Stares**
Jeshi, who's in my Chem class: .... *Headdesks because she'll actually know what I'm talking about...somewhat**

My friend was telling me all sorts of things about FMA before I had a chance to see it (first 3 episodes) at a local Univ. organized low-key con called Otafest. Then I began like d/l'ing all the episodes and watching them in one go xD;. Actually I started d/l'ing after I had heard about it being lisenced but french subbed. *cackles* I think though, after episode 13 from a group I had been d/l'in from, I d/l'ed episode 32 before having found an english group for 14+. So whee~~ I had somewhat joined the fray in the up-to-date 'ZOMG STRESSAGE!!' people XDD.

*imagines you doing that in a class of hers*
...I'd join your friend in the headdesk...even if I have a chance of like knocking out both my eyes with the nose-pads of my glasses. xD

I joined a couple of weeks before it got licenced. I think it was up to episode... 26, maybe when I started watching it. I borrowed the first 20 episodes from my local anime shop, waited a day for them to get the next four, got impaitent and downloaded the rest.

It's the first anime that I've ever downloaded!

XDD I'm just crazy like that. In said chem class, I admitted to looking off of Jeshi's paper for some measurments that I couldn't get down in a report/conclusion paragraph thing (My exact words were "The problem with the paper was, I didn't do it. I looked off of Jeshi's measurments, so if you wanna know the errors, look off her paper"). XD I love my Chem class.

SHINRA !! KAIRA =D. I butt in to bug the world. Ah,you guys are lucky. I don't know anybody else who watches downloaded Anime (well,except Naruto)...and actulally started off with Toriyama WOrld's scans of FMA manga(I'm SURE we all wanted to know that =D).
Oh,just curious Shinrai and kaira, what class are you in? And you boh need nicknames! Shinrai, you can be Izushin or Raizumi (both with Izumi! teehee! STOMP music =D)and Kaira you can be...Kaivyrara =D. Kai-enVY-rara.
ROFL! ...ah,chem class...bad,bad memories -.-
Yah, I'm finished shamelessly butting in! WAHAHAHA!

XD Actually, I don't have many friends. I did have one, but her WinMX got taken away, so she doesn't download anime any more. *Sigh* None of my friends have seen Fullmetal Alchemist yet.

...YET! XD

What sucks the most is for cosplay -.-;;. SO far, no one can cosplay Hagaren with me -.- DID show it to a friend but he was like 'wtf thats weird'*kills him*...showed a few parts to my younger cousins(10 and 12 respectively)..they ROFLed and loved..only it's now to them 'the cartoon with the lady who shoots her doggie and the armor who runs around with a cat'.
T_T.We are not alone.

We should have some sort of fic/art/stuff challenge related to "OMG ONLY 52 WEEKS UNTIL THE MOVIE!" to help relieve the "OMG 52 WHOLE WEEKS UNTIL THE MOVIE?" pain.

Maybe all those games cover the span of two years? *dies*

It might as well turn out to be like that:
*end of series* *few sins are still alive, go away and try to "build their lives as humans"...

two years later...

Oh no! Something strange is happening to the Sins!

..Lowly inspiration, I know ^_^. But there's something I wonder, if the Sins COULD be made 'human', what form would they have? That of an foetus? A baby? Would they still have the looks of the person they 'incarnated' as Sins and before?...Then, that wouldn't be very satisfoctory, would it, they'd still be relics of the past...
hmm...Moofy can still be loved by his papa and his mama without problem =D. But well, the future wil tell us.

Ummmmm....If only, another 40 episodes of FMA....*dreamy eyes*

Is it really true with the season-amount-of-episodes-absolute-cut-off? I mean, audience does play a part I would think - for example, to bring up another Square-Enix cartoon, Final Fantasy Unlimited, the crappiest show EVER, was supposed to have twice as many episodes, only it was so bad they were never made. Slightly different I know to extending a series, but what about say...DragonBall GT, continuing past manga creation?

Besides, if they were going to do it for any series, it would be for FMA, because it became way more popular then they expected XD. Still highly unlikely, but we can always hope.

From the one promotional pic for the movie, I thought it would be about a young Hohenheim ^___^, because it sounds like there's quite a bit of backstory between him and Dante.

5 episodes only left...so very sa----d...

I'm actually really quite glad that FMA is stopping at 52. If they kept going, it would be a good guess that it would not be as popular. Hell, look at Inuyasha, they could have stopped about a 100 episodes if they moved like FMA did.

The thing about FMA that MAKES it good with 50 episodes is that its just so *INTENSE* so it has the ability to move for 50. If it went on any longer, I'm afraid that it would quickly wither because of the lack of space to move. =/

Another 40 would be nice though. (We could always pray that a spinoff series could be made like FMP:Fumoffu <3)
