I don't know how accurate this is, but Wikipedia has a listing of the Episode titles of Brotherhood up to ep. 5:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Fullm...st:_Brotherhood

So, it looks like our episode break down is this:

2. Backstory
3. Lior
4. Nina
5. Introduction of Scar

So meaning if they intend to follow the manga, then we've got the Resembool, 3rd laboratory, (possible Al angst arc) Hughes, and Rush Valley arcs before we even GET to Greed.

It's interesting and it's good to know what's coming.
Though i wonder how they are going to cover everything that happened in Lior in one episode X_X.
It makes me a little worried but we'll see happy.gif

Nothing happens in Lior, they can perfectly do it in one episode wink.gif So if Lior is here, I suppose we will have Yoki too? Probably in the flashback...

I suppose that it will like in the manga for Scar : we see him at the end of episode 4, killing Tucker and Nina, and then we learn more about him in episode 5 where he tries to kill Edward

I did have the feeling after I've seen the pilot that they're going to go around things pretty fast. Which isn't a bad thing afterall. I hate seing scenes that drag on forever with absolutely nothing worthy going on *caugh*Naruto&Bleach*caugh*

So has it been decided that the new series will have around 50 episodes or not? If they take thew fast pace I think they just might pull it through in 50, 51 episodes.

@fullmoon - I made your post into a new thread so that we can keep using this thread for the discussions about all upcoming episodes. ^^


-------------

And, as for the current topic, this discussion is basically based on this Wiki entry, right?

QUOTE
"List of Fullmetal Alchemist episodes"
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
01 "Fullmetal Alchemist"
"Hagane no Renkinjutsushi" (鋼の錬金術師) April 5, 2009
<.... episode summary here...>
02 "The Day It Began"
"Hajimari no Hi" (はじまりの日) April 12, 2009
03 "The Heretic City"
"Jakyō no Machi" (邪教の街) April 19, 2009
04 "An Alchemist's Suffering"
"Renkinjutsushi no Kunō" (錬金術師の苦悩) April 26, 2009
05 "Sorrowful Rain"
"Kanashimi no Ame" (哀しみの雨) May 3, 2009

My usual response (as some of you already know ^^) to any posts using Wiki as a source reference is to be cautious and know that not all articles on Wiki are correct.
But, as this being a "speculation" thread, I think it is fine to use it as a tool to help us generate our thoughts/imaginations, AS LONG AS it is clearly stated that it is NOT the confirmed fact.

As for this particular Wiki entry, it doesn't say where the author got this information. There is a reference list at the end of the article, and I checked them, but the source of this particular info is not listed there.

From I see, the episode titles for the first two episodes on the list are correct, and possibly the rest of episode titles may be correct as well. Nonetheless, I would take this list with a grain of salt as long as there is no mention of how the author got this info in the article. I will feel much more comfortable if these were the episode titles officially listed on FMA-2 JP official Web site, or any other similar sites as the titles for the upcoming episodes. Then, I can take this as a confirmed fact.

Until these episode titles appear on any of the official publications/articles/promo news etc., I advise everyone to take this as an unconfirmed Wiki article. biggrin.gif

It's an unconfirmed rumor that the new series will only be around 50 episodes. Here's a transcript of an interview stating that they have no plans (as of right now) to make it only 50 episodes: http://amestris-star.livejournal.com/28996.html.

ETA: It is now confirmed that FMA: Brotherhood will have 60 plus episodes.

Again, reminder that this list of episode titles are, at the moment at least, unconfirmed information, and I advise to take it as such until/unless someone can inform us that this is officially confirmed. ^^

I see the potential danger here, and to avoid future confusion, I ask anyone posting references as the base of his/her opinion/speculation on this thread, to kindly try to add some kind of clarification (as possibly as you can) that if your source is an officially confirmed fact, or another speculation by some others. smile.gif

Here's some information I found on AnimeSuki. It has some bits of information about the episode under the title and staff information. I'm pretty certain the information is accurate, but it's still all speculation until we can find out the source.

QUOTE
Ep2 - The day it all began

Covers the events of the failed human transmutation, and Roy Mustang convincing the brothers to be State Alchemists.

Script: Hiroshi Ohnogi
Episode Director: Kazuo Miyake
Storyboard: Yasuhiro Irie
Animation Director: Madoka Ozawa

Ep3 - The City of Heresy

Covers the story of Lior and Cornello. The miracle of the Philosopher's Stone is showcased.

Script: Hiroshi Ohnogi
Episode Director: Masao Ookubo
Storyboard: Masao Ookubo
Animation Director: Yasuyuki Noda

Ep4 - The Alchemist's Anguish

Ed and Al meet Tucker, the Life-sewing Alchemist, and his 9 year old daughter Nina.

Script: Michihiro Tsuchiya
Episode Director: Seikou Satou
Storyboard: Nanami Sanjou
Animation Director: Hiroya Iijima

Ep5 - Sorrowful Rain

Scar appears. Ed and Al's brotherly love is showcased.

Script: Michihiro Tsuchiya
Episode Director: Hiroshi Iketomi
Storyboard: Yasuhiro Irie
Animation Director: Chiyomi Tsukamoto


I don't know why Nina is cited as 9. huh.gif That's definitely strange. I always thought she was around 4 or 5. Also, I'm a bit worried about how rapidly they're progressing through the chapters.

EDIT: Oh, after searching around more, I found someone on AnimeNewsNetwork's forums cite the same information and say it's from Newtype. If this is true, then the information must be true too.

I was thinking about this today. That they'd have to do Lior, Tucker/Nina and Yoki if they're following the manga. Lab 5 too...because There's no Chimera Tucker in the manga...obviously if Scar kills him.

It would make sense if they move along a little fast in the beginning to cover what's already been covered in the previous anime, but I hope they don't rush it since there are things in the manga that weren't in the anime that change the whole story.

It's like the Hellsing OVAs. The first episode was a repeat of what was in the first anime and manga, some flashbacks covered what we got in the first anime and manga. Now it covers the manga pretty strictly and is amazing.

I was hoping FMA would go along those lines. Once they hit the manga story, it can slow down.

Also...is it possible for them to fit it all into 50 episodes? I can see why they'd want to do it...but the manga isn't even finished yet. I hope they pace it so that they don't need fillers to finish the anime off when the manga is finished.

According to an interview from someone from BONES, they haven't decided on the number of episodes yet. http://amestris-star.livejournal.com/28996...view=9540#t9540 I'm almost positive that page is accurate.

I'm thinking they will finish it somewhere between 60-70 episodes. If the first five episode titles and such are correct, then that means they've covered up to about chapter 7 in five episodes (EDIT: actually, they've excluded chapter 3 and 4 and included 23 and 24...). I'm thinking episode 6 will be the episode where they travel to Resembool and meet Marcoh, episode 7 is where we'll see Winry and Pinako again (yay), episode 8 is where they find out the secret about the Philosopher's Stone and thus beginning the Lab 5 arc. The Lab 5 arc will probably be two-three episodes, then we have the Alphonse angst to span an episode, then the whole baby birth scene, then Izumi's introduction, then the island thing, then Greed.... Wow, we have a lot to look forward to. biggrin.gif The whole Greed arc thing will probably be done by episode 19 or 20.

We'll probably see Mei-chan by episode 22 or so, and either see Ling in the same episode or the one after. So they'd have covered about 33 chapters in 24 episodes. (This is all my guessing, though, and I could be completely off!).

All I can say is, regardless of the chapter to episode ratio, I hope it is done tastefully and given enough time to develop. Ever since the debut of episode one, I've begun rewatching the first series and the experience has reminded me just how excellent the direction of the first 25 episodes was. Great humor and action when appropriate, but also excellent integration of the show's overarching themes through quiet/and or dramatic sequences. The slow build of the first show allowed for several climaxes which carried tremendous emotional weight:

1. The Fullmetal Alchemist reveal
2. Nina's death and Scar's reveal
3. Laboratory Five
4. Hughes' death

If Bones is going to take all the time and effort to do a reboot, I hope they do it right. As much as I enjoyed the first episode as a fan of the series, it really did destroy a huge amount of tension with it multiple character introductions and (perhaps) misplaced emphasis on the dark side of the military. One the one hand, it works for established fans, but on the other hand, it really hampers the artistic merit of the second season as a stand alone show.

From the episode descriptions provided, it looks like the train sequence as well as Yoki's coal mine will be cut from the animation cue. This is unfortunate, as these events really provided context to the military's corruption, as well as elaborated upon the state alchemist theme. All this is kind of spoiled, however, by episode one jumping the gun thematically.

I have every confidence that once the animators start following the manga religiously, it will be awesome, but it kind of irks me that I'll have the watch the first fourth of season one to get (kind of) a manga-ish version of the events of Arakawa's story, and the second half of season two for the rest.

At least we still have the manga itself. rolleyes.gif

According to an interview from someone from BONES, they haven't decided on the number of episodes yet. http://amestris-star.livejournal.com/28996...view=9540#t9540 I'm almost positive that page is accurate.


That's my LJ in fact smile.gif Had transcribed an interview someone from the ANN staff had with a BONES official. So yeah, that's official for sure.
I am supposing that this could go over the 50+ eps...

I don't know why Nina is cited as 9. huh.gif That's definitely strange. I always thought she was around 4 or 5.


Same here, I always thought that Nina was around four or five years old ( I know that she definately was that old in the original anime...although it was still 1910 when she met the brothers in that one) and she definately doesn't look nine years old in the manga either. O_o;

Although I have mixed feelings on that... I mean if she really is nine years old in this new series, I'll be glad because that means that she got to have a longer lifespan before...*that* event.
But at the same time, it just seems hard picturing her at that age. O.o it should be interesting to see if that rumour is true though.

I'm excited to see the EdxWinry scenes of course! But the thing is that I will have to watch them in Japanese with subs. I can't wait to see the dubbed version, (with Vic as Ed and Caitlin as Winry hopefully biggrin.gif) but I sadly that won't be out until I'm in college probably sad.gif sad.gif
