I do have one question related to the material quoted from your original post. You say that the new movie does not function as a continuation of Brotherhood, but what about its role as part of the larger Brotherhood continuity? In other words, would it be possible to consider this film as part of the 2004 story line? This may seem like a silly question, but to me it is rather important. I vastly prefer FMA1 and CoS to anything I witnessed in Brotherhood, and nothing would give me greater enjoyment than to hear that Milos Star can be taken as a stand alone work compatible with either anime continuity.
From official clips, I understand they've retained the brotherhood voice actors for series mainstays like Winry, Riza and Roy - and in that respect the film is a Brotherhood spin-off - but what about actual plot? You mentioned the Doors of Truth in another post. Does Julia actually interact with Truth or is her loss merely implied? Beyond this, are there any specific references to Brotherhood-only material?
I appreciate any feedback you may be able to offer, as it will likely be quite some time before I am able to watch a legitimate version of this film. Many thanks in advance.
Now that I have a little more knowledge of it with Tombow's
translations of the mini-manga, it appears it's during
Brotherhood since there is mention of Roy's recovery after his fight with Lust and Havoc's condition. What I was referring to was that it was not a follow-up story of Brotherhood like CoS was to the first FMA series. Sorry I can't provide more details since I saw it in Japanese. I wish my Japanese was better so I could contribute more!!

[BTW, if you'd like to know more detailed description of that scene or the movie's connection to the Brotherhood series (if any.. though other than that brief appearance of gate I don't find any so far xp), as RedAmaranth watched the movie in Japan in Japanese while she is English speaker with some Japanese knowledge (but kind enough to provide us with her general review ^^) may I recommend we also wait for acaray (who was lucky enough to be one of 400 French people who watched the movie in France with French sub) to kindly finish writing his detailed movie summary?
Ah! Sorry I couldn't be more detailed =/ I can't wait to read acaray's
summary so things I missed can be cleared up for me. That's awesome that those 400 got to watch the movie with real understanding. ^__^ I'm excited for the gate
issue to be cleared up as well since I only know what I saw, not what was said!<Your posts were merged. Please stop double posting! - Board Staff>
