(Source: Ad in GanGan July issue that will come out in June 11)



=======================================================



I know that the new series comes out on April 5th in japan but where can i see it online?

(The following info was added by Tombow, updated as of March 18, 2010)

Available options to watch FMA: Brotherhood episodes so far:



Viewing English dubbed episodes

* In U.S., FMA fans can watch English dubbed Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood episodes on AdultSwim programming portion of Cartoon Network, every Sunday 12:00 - 12:30 AM Eastern time, then same morning 4:00 - 4:30 AM Eastern time for rebroadcasting of the same episode.



==============

Viewing raw episodes in Japan

* In Japan, the weekly airing of FMA series-2 starts Sunday, April 5, 5:00 PM (Japan time) on MBS/TBS TV networks.


* Also in Japan, starting Friday, April 10, 2009, you can watch the episode (in Japanese) on your computer through "TV shows-on-personal-computer, GYAO anime station" web site. Each Friday, 12:00 noon the showing will switch to the newest episode. For details, please check Gyao site - anime page and Gyao technical support page (Note: I checked, and the service is limited to within Japan only.)

==============

On-line streaming of raw episode same time as airing in Japan

NOTE: Please be warned that the quality and reliability of simultaneous streaming of Japanese broadcasting of FMA-2 episode on Key-hole TV and TbAnts and MM have been sketchy, and you may or may not successfully get the streaming of the whole episode.


* In the U.S., and elsewhere where it's accessible on-line (accessibility may vary from country to country, please check your local situation,) you can watch streaming of the episode (in Japanese) on-line through Key-hole TV.
KeyHoleTV is part of a project by Japanís Ministry of Internal Affairs testing out P2P (peer to peer) technology. It's free and legal, and it includes TV shows on TBS, hence you can watch FMA episode also.
You need to download and install a file to enable your computer to watch Key-hole TV. Check details on Key-hole TV site (the site is in English.)


* In the U.S., and elsewhere where it's accessible on-line (accessibility may vary from country to country, please check your local situation): TvAnts is another program to watch the episodes on P2P (peer to peer) on-line. Check for TBS for episodes in Japanese, and TBS-TV for episodes with subs in Chinese.
(This info was posted by Linkdude20002001 here. Since I'm not familiar with TvAnts, please inquire Linkdude20002001 for further details.)


* In the U.S., and elsewhere where it's accessible on-line (accessibility may vary from country to country, please check your local situation): For those who are having trouble streaming with Kay-hole, mms://stream.gundam.eu/tbs uses your regular media software (VLC, Winamp, RealPlayer, etc.) to watch streaming of TBS TV shows (that includes FMA) with reported very good results.
(This info was posted by Gukumatz here. Since I'm not familiar with this application, please inquire Gukumatz for further details.)

Well, I received a mail from dybex, which released the first season of fma in France, saying that the second season would be availaible the weeks following its diffusion in japon for French-speaking country, so France, Luxembourg, Monaco, Belgium and Switzerland, on internet. So maybe the others countries in europe will get something like that too....


I just read on the net that Taka Fansubs is definetly doing the fansub. Here's the link: http://www.takafansubs.com/?p=news&id=13

Man I'm happy I was just overreacting back there! Yay for FMA! <3

I'm a huge FMA fan but I'm also a huge fan of being asleep xD
Guess I have to go to sleep again after I watched it U_U

Just a couple of hourssss, yay! I'm so excited!
Although I know I will be really pissed of when it will be over and we have to wait one whole week for the next episode dry.gif

I heard that the funimation website will be showing the first episode subbed on their website on April 10. For anyone who isn't from the United States, funimation is the company that licensed the first FMA anime series. But I think that most people know that.

^April 9th, actually. It's nice to know that FMA is being shown in so many places around the world. For faster releases, though, I'll stick with fansubs. x3

Yeah for sure and I'm all about watching the Funimation one on the 9th. <.< I'm just an impatient little fangirl who wants to watch it now. xD Though I understand what you mean about watching the fan-subbed one. I guess that is a bit worrying, but it'll still be worth it. I can't wait to see this.

You can currently watch the entire first episode without subtitles in HD via YouTube (split into three sections of course). The quality is great and the videos are readily accessible without any fuss. As long as these videos remain active on YouTube, I think that they are the best bet for anyone looking to view the original Japanese material. A little later this week, Funimation will have a high quality, subtitled version of the first episode available for free online. Under this release structure, I honestly do not see the utility behind fansubbing. Would not the easiest route be to simply watch the footage on YouTube for the time being and wait until Thursday for Funimation's subtitled version? Messing around with IRC, torrents, and the like seems like a whole lot of unnecessary work just to obtain a technically illegal fansub that may or may not be linguistically and contextually accurate.

Overall, I believe that the simulcast setup, if utilized by default for new anime releases, will effectively kill the fansub culture in short order as its relevance will be all but completely stamped out. Thankfully the industry is finally warming up to the reality that a disjointed release structure not only impinges upon profitability, but is wholly unrealistic in an age where information can be traded in the blink of an eye over the internet.

QUOTE (Metastasis @ Apr 6 2009, 11:27 PM) *
Update: I just finished the 1st episode, and it's pretty much the definition of awesome. I'd really, really rather not spoil it, but it seems some of y'all are going to wait several months so you can watch it legally. I guess if that's your thing, that's cool, but it is really, really good. Brutal even. Skipped the intro/credits, so no idea how those are.


Funimation, the United States licensee of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, will be releasing an official subtitled version of the first new episode at 12:00 noon EDT on Thursday, April 9, 2009. This date and time is only two days and a few hours away, thus the wait is quite minimal, and of course the episode will be available for cheap-as-free online at Funimation's website.

For the exceedingly impatient (myself included), there is always the "predominately legal" YouTube option. I say that this alternative is "predominately legal" as Google, YouTube's parent company, is largely protected against copyright infringement lawsuits under the Safe Harbor provisions of the DMCA and I cannot honestly envision any reasonable attempt at prosecuting someone for accessing streaming material via a legal online content source. This could all change pending the ultimate decision in the Viacom International, Inc. et al v. YouTube, Inc. et al case (Background) which is currently being heard in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, but as of the present I believe that this construct stands.

In any event, I am glad to hear that you, as I, thoroughly enjoyed the second season pilot.

Thanks for all the info, everyone! I downloaded Keyhole TV into my computer, and I bookmarked a few other sites too, in case my connection dies while watching in stream. biggrin.gif

I love the internet. Living in Finland, I'd probably never have a possibility to see this new FMA otherwise. And I wouldn't like to wait for another year or two for the tiny possibility for the series ever reach the Finland TV. (although the first anime did get aired here two years ago, so most likely they'll take Brotherhood someday. )

Finally I have something to wait for every week again. biggrin.gif Subs or not, I will download every friggin' episode as soon as it's online! *dances around happily*

Tombow, could you add this direct stream link to the first post?

mms://stream.gundam.eu/tbs

It's a stream of the TBS channel that works with regular media software (VLC, Winamp, RealPlayer, etc.) and it shows up incredibly clear. I found out about it just a few minutes before the second episode aired last Sunday.

I barely had time to make a post at LJ before the episode started, hahaha, but those who saw it in time say it worked for them, too.

http://community.livejournal.com/fm_alchemist/6203339.html

Winamp instructions: (File -> Play -> URL... -> now input the link).

Thanks!
