As announced in this forum, the Fullmetal Alchemist forum has been retired. This is just a natural part of a forum's lifespan. It has been a while since the new episodes of the show were aired. Over the time since then, the show has seen a great reduction of posting and attention. As a result, it is no longer meaningful to have a gadzillion threads to discuss the show.

This thread is one of the few remaining where discussion can still be posted. By concentrating discussion into a few threads it may be possible to actually have a semblance of interaction once more. Please continue to show Fullmetal Alchemist your enjoyment interest in these threads.

Fullmetal Alchemist anime question.

Since it seems to me that the Fullmetal Alchemist section is dead right now I chose to ask here. In episode 15, why does Scars arm absorb the red stone. If the stone is incomplete and his arm is to absorb souls, then why? Red Stones have no souls. Also, happy first thread/first post to me!

Here's the rundown, as basic as I can make it:

Two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric try to bring back their mother after she dies, using Alchemy. They fail, and Ed loses his leg and Al loses his whole body in the process because humans cannot come back to life, and a price must be paid for trying. Ed sacrifices one of his arms to attach Al's soul to a suit of armor. Ed soon after joins the military as a State Alchemist (gaining the title of Fullmetal Alchemist) to gain access to government research into alchemy and a way to get their bodies back to the way they were. Al accompanies him, though he does not join the army because human alchemy is actually forbidden and neither he nor Ed want the state to know that they were directly dabbling in human alchemy.

The anime and manga have different storylines, but both chronicle how the two brothers face a lot of hardships and discover the dark secrets of Alchemy in their quest to regain their bodies to how they were originally.

If you want more info, you can look it up on Wikipedia or the main FMA website.

So the first FMA anime basically ended with Shambala and they're redoing it completely to stick with the manga? (So there's no post-Shambala story?)

No. Conqueror of Shamballa was the end of it. There is no post-Shamballa storyline.

Also there were rumours that mangaka wrote something exclusive for this new FMA adaptation.

Arakawa designed Isaac for the Director, because apparently the Director wants to start with an anime exclusive character to introduce a bunch of the cast at once.

If this season heads at a different direction compare to the first season. Why don't they change the name to distinguish? FMA: The XXXX, for example, instead of FMA 2

Normally, people would not want to have a try at S2 before finish S1, no?

You're wrong, the official title of the new season is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood --- not Fullmetal Alchemist 2.

I haven't seen the first anime adaptation and i plan to watch this. I've only recently started to read the manga as well.

Just adding to that. Even then, Brotherhood is just the international title and in Japan the new series is simply called "Fullmetal Alchemist".

Actually its called

Hagane no Renkinjutsushi Fullmetal Alchemist.

The original was known as Hagane no Renkinjutsushi

Which means Alchemist of Steel.

For some reason Hiromu Arakawa gave her manga two names one in Japanese and one in English.

Actually, if you want to be that pedantic, the first series was technically subtitled as "Fullmetal Alchemist" in Japan as well, so the first series and the remake series technically have the same title.

I'm confused, So Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is basically a remake of S1? not an entirely different story/carry on from the movie.

Instead of saying remake of the first series, it's a closer adaptation of the original manga.
