‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ Movie to Follow ‘Brotherhood’ Conclusion
After 64 episodes, “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” saw its finale on Sunday in Japan. But just as the series’ earlier anime adaptation was followed by a feature-length conclusion in “Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa,” so too will “Brotherhood” be capped with an animated movie.
According to Temple Knights, Sunday’s episode of FMA:B ended with an announcement that production on an as-yet-unnamed theatrical film had been green-lit. There’s no word on the plot of the new film, which should be all-new given that the 64th episode of “Brotherhood” reportedly synched up with the conclusion of Hiromu Arakawa’s manga series.American fans who haven’t caught the end of “Brotherhood” might have to wait a bit to watch it on Hulu, but FUNimation has up to episode 63 available on its official site with 64 likely on the way before long.
