Bones is taking care of Fullmetal Alchemist "the true version" For 2009 it will be better to find another studio

I don't think we'll ever see a new Full Metal (Main series) anime adaptation guys. I remember reading the DVD sales were pretty grim.

They were bad for a KyoAni anime but they can be considered pretty good for most other studio.

Iv'e never even heard of Harhui.
I was always under the impression that FMP was a fairly successful anime, (sales-wise), and had been saving it for later, and finally got around to watching it. I'm not a big manga fan, and i just hate how people leave the endings to anime discontinued for what ever reason. This is the case with alot of animes, ex. elfen lied.. They should really try to atleast make a final season to provide some conclusion, as of right now FMP is great, but it's unfinished, so there's a level to the epicness it can deliver. Maybe another studio should step up and finish it, because it does have potential. Even funimation noticed this when they originally licensed it.

Theres going to be prolly two Full Metal Panic! series. One for sure, but I think theres going to be another one also. Because the FMP series are based on the novels, and theres at least one novel that has not been made into an anime and/or manga. I've read a little the english version and I know that !SPOILER! Tessa's brother kidnaps Chidori !SPOILER! And when you watch the end of The Second Raid, it gives you a feeling that theres going to be sequels, right?

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was the big hit of 2006, one of the few anime able to sell has much DVD as a Gundam series.

FMP, in Japan, can be considered an average to good seller for most studios but for Kyoto Animation (the one who have animated TSR) FMP was a poor seller.

It's definitely not content that is keeping this series from being made.... I would go on a ledge and say it is more or less a financial reason.

Also, in response about Haruhi.. it skyrocketed in popularity enough to be called a "phenomenon." and as mentioned before continues to make loads of money.

well.. not exactly true. although there is a lot of content, every book ( except one ) ends on a cliffhanger. Anime only endings ( as far as i know ) isnt kyoanis style, and I sure as hell wouldnt want to see one

It's not really cliffhanger (except BOMF) but it's more like the end of a chapter than the end of a novel. It's like all the novel coming after DVMC are part of a single novel.

I don't mind if they end it on a cliffhanger it shows that the anime is still coming but at this point I'm worried that it will never come out. We have to wait until the last novel to come out to find out if the author put any new information in it.

American release have no impact on what the Japanese company will do, if you want hint from Japan then the three series have been released in Bluray box following the re-airing.

And from all the indications, all three box-set series' on Bluray are selling extremely well (Fumoffu only having just being recently released).

and when exactly is that last novel coming out? I heard that it would be released in November, but I guess it was delayed. any1 got any info on the release of the last novel? Also, as a side note, is Tokyopop delayed in translating the novels into English? They translated the first three and they said the fourth would be coming out in December, but I've looked on bookshelves and haven't seen it....
