And there might be people who already know it though, Kanno-san who took charge of character design says he doesn't continue it at the movie. By some way, if the movie has new "character designer", it means the movie isn't absolutely "live action film"...? It's a pity that Kanno-san plays no further role in FMA, but I'm really relieved if his mention will clearly mean "the animation movie". Then I wish Arakawa-san would take charge of character design...and the plot also would be written by her.
The phrase I underlined has made me leap with joy already! x3 I was so hoping for this movie to be animated, NEVER live-action... Perhaps my prayers were answered. As for the possibility of a new animation style, hey, I'm looking forward to it as long as the characters look like in the manga. They have to be faithful to the character's original designs, even while improving/changing the animation style.

I saw some hope when I read that journal a while back. The only thing I'm worried about is if there is no new character designer that steps up after Kanno, which in turn could suggest that it is live action. >.< Unless Live action movies need some form of "character designer" too? I really don't know. But judging by what she says in her journal, it appears as though having a character designer is only something an animation would need. xD

I wouldn't mind if they did it in the art style of the first series. Mostly because I'd be curious to see how some of the characters who weren't in the first series would look in that style.
Yes! (I'd love to see Olivier personally) That's be very interesting to see, but I don't see it happening that dramatically different... it might only be slightly different like between the art of anime1 and CoS.

Bud I don't know where you're getting this info about it for sure not being about side-story. It feels like to me like I'm missing something. Like there were posts above and below my previous one. I feel like I'm missing part of the conversation.
