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 Japan’s 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
Unown
It will air at 5:00 PM in Tokyo right?
Gosh, that means I have to watch it at 8:00 AM if I want to watch it live O_o
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
Makika
Well, that's a lot of fansubs around here... It's a fact.

But if u can't wait for the subs u can download those "tv online programs" and watch the first ep. in TV TOKIO at the same time as the japanese people. biggrin.gif
*But I still prefere the fansubs*
FMAobsessed
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.
Mistress of Misery
^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
Kyelinn
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.
Tombow
I updated the first post of this thread with all the available viewing options we know so far. smile.gif
Edward Cardinal Elric
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.

Still nothing for the UK?
Damn, we suck.

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.
Trakonda
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*
Gukumatz
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.

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

Thanks!

You can watch it subtitled on Hulu now, too, officially. Only the first two episodes are available now, though.

Provided by Funimation, but streaming faster.

....Cantonese dub of "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" is airing on TVB's anime specialty channel J2 and TVB-Jade. ....
And just to let you all know, TVB has aired up to Episode 2 at this point. They're not too far behind the Japanese broadcast. They didn't replace the theme song like they did last time either! So far, so good!

Hi, tinlunlau, nice to see you again! ^^
So, TVb is airing Chinese dubbed FMA as well as Chinese subbed FMA??
Or, are they aring only Chinese dubbed FMA? Do you know the airing schedule?
here, that will be appreciated, and then I will add that info on compiled info list on th efirst page. Thanks!! biggrin.gif
tinlunlau
From what I gather, J2 airs it first on Wednesdays at 11:30PM while TVB reruns it on Fridays at 12:30AM. It's dubbed in Cantonese and yes, the Japanese audio track is also there (nicam, go figure!).

But I'm not sure, though. Will have to check again.
Tombow
QUOTE (AA battery @ May 2 2009, 04:52 AM) *
It is indeed dubbed in both Japanese and Cantonese. If your Hong Kong television supports the different audio channel function, you can switch the Cantonese audio into Japanese audio instead. They have the subtitle up for both version anyway, so...
Tombow: Cantonese, not Chinese. I know that they are not exactly different with the fact that Cantonese is one of the 20+ Chinese dialects, but still. =P If FMA is Mandarin dubbed I would NEVER watch it. xD



@tinlunlau and AA battery - Thanks for the info!!
So, it's Cantonese dub with Cantonese sub, with the optional choice of switching to original Japanese dub audio, and it's aired first on J2 channel, then repeat of the same on TVb channel later on the same week? Am I getting it correctly? biggrin.gif
tinlunlau
Yeah, you basically got it right.

J2 is a pay TV anime specialty channel affiliated with HK-TVB. TVB-Jade is their main free access channel. There is also Jade-HD, their new high definition channel. But I am not sure if they air the full 720p HD version of FMA:B.

And I think J2 is on digital cable. So the subtitles can be turned on and off.
Animax Hong Kong also airs FMA:B in Hong Kong but they are two weeks ahead of TVB's airing.
Tombow
@tinlunlau - Aha, thank you so much for the info!! biggrin.gif
I added the info on Honk Kong broadcasting of FMA: Brotherhood, provided by you and AA battery to the first page of this thread. ^^

Anakishi
Yep, 5th episode is done streaming. Nevermind about the problems I've had with Gukumatz's link, the streaming started working as soon as the episode was about to start.
I could hug you right now, Gukumatz. Thank you so much for the link!!
Tombow
@Anakishi - Glad to hear that it's working!! Thank you for letting us know!! biggrin.gif

sigh...need to find another reliable fansub group subbing FMA:B now.
especially one that presents the show in full HD and playable on PS3.

otherwise, i am stuck with the cantonese dub.

Hiya there. You can also watch FMAB at Animefreak.tv They got good quality as well smile.gif

Here Dont be misled by the link title it says "dubbed" haha... smile.gif
tinlunlau
I was checking the TVB's adverts for FMA: Brotherhood and noticed that there should be a correction to be made.

TVB-Jade actually airs it on Fridays at 12:15am.
The airing time for J2 remains the same on Wednesdays at 11:30pm.

Anyway, I'm still waiting to download the Cantonese dubbed version of Episode 3. MKV version's out but waiting for the rmvb instead. Computer's too slow to support mkv and it sucks enough that the PS3 can't play mkv files. So pfffffffffffft.......
ultimatesheild4ever
Funimation.com FMA: BrotherhoodYou guys know you can watch FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood at Funimation.com right? They're not dubbed because they're not out in English yet but that's better than nothing, atleast they're subbed. All you gotta do is look there and it has the first 5, they come out every Thursday.

For Filipino fans out there (we're only few sad.gif ) TV5 will air FMA episodes starting May 22 at 7:30 p.m (Philippine time).

More details here: http://www.tv5.com.ph/mediacentre/pr17_052009.html

I just found this out this morning on my way to school. I saw an ad of the TV station and I thought I was hallucinating laugh.gif

@sToRm GodDesS - That is an awesome news!!
Thank you for letting us know!!

We used to have a good number of Pinoy FMA fans as our members during the first series. Hopefully we will get many active Pinoy FMA fans here again. ^^

ETA: This info is added to the compiled list on the first page of this thread. smile.gif

ETA: May 28
As posted by asunder here, according to UK Anime News site, the streaming of English subbed FMA-2: Brotherhood episodes may become available in UK starting sometime in July. (Also, English dubbed DVD of FMA-2: Brotherhood episodes may come on sale Feb/Mar 2010!!)

Well, not really.

I just figured this out last Friday. FMA:B is in Filipino/Tagalog dub. huh.gif Don't get me wrong. I love my country and our language, and I can't blame the station if the translations are too short or too long or too confusing. But most of the voices don't fit with the characters. And the way their voices acted... it made me want to turn off my TV. My friend even told me that Riza's voice sounded so flirty. Sigh.

Ok sorry for the rant. That's all I wanted to say. I also understand that it would be for the convenience of the viewers. But still...
Tombow
@sToRm GodDesS - Wow... they actually make Tagalog dub? ohmy.gif That's the first dub of FMA: Brotherhood episode in ANY language!! (as far as I now...)

Sorry to hear that the dubbing VAs are not good. That's too bad... sad.gif
Maybe you can watch English sub somewhere, somehow? unsure.gif

Anyway, thanks for letting us know. I'm going to edit the info accordingly. ^^

Really sorry if this has been asked before, (I've checked the last few pages and they have no mention of it), but has the Funimation website taken down their videos? I checked the main website and used the searchbar but I couldn't find it at all!

(This might be just my computer, but I did want to check.)

Funimation is airing a new epsiode of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood every week and has the 8 episodes already released.

Something happened on Funimation.com. I can't watch any FMA episodes. It tells me I have the wrong page or something like that.
I think it may have something to do with some jerk hacking into their website and uploading One Piece episode 403, before they were supposed to do it. There's an article about it on animenewsnetwork.com.
I hope they don't start not having FMA:Brotherhood!
Tombow
@mingzi - No, it's not just your computer. I think we are all having trouble viewing FMA: B episodes on Funimation.com right now. sad.gif

@The Frozen Alchemist - It has been, but not now, unfortunately...

@Jen_Elric - I'm also assuming One Piece "incident" and FMA: Brotherhood episodes not being viewable at Funimation.com right now are somehow connected. (If anyone would like to read the news article on ANIMENEWSNETWROK about the incident with One Piece, it's here..)
If so, this is very unfortunate. Hopefully (crossing fingers) this would be just some temporary inconveniences while they are dealing with the security breach issue, and the on-line viewing of the FMA: B episodes at Funimation.com would resume sometime later.
So far, FMA: Brotherhood episodes on HULU are still accessible. They carry episodes 2 weeks behind Funimation.com's schedule, and the site has up to episode 6 at the moment.

Some idiot "leaked" the One Piece episode last night, and as a result One Piece's streaming was disabled.

As if that wasn't enough to make me really disappointed I just learned that FMA Brotherhood's videos are gone from the FUNimation site as well.

I don't know what's going to happen from here, but it's sad that both series got hit... and it's especially bad for me because I'm keeping up with both. T_T

EDIT: I'm sorry for not reading above. Why do I always do this. >_<

I'm a bit perplexed as to why they also removed the FMA: Brotherhood episodes. Nobody was leaking the FMA episodes. =/

I'm afraid this means that we're losing all of our rights to legally stream these series because of some idiot.

I am not happy, not happy at all. I waited to watch that One Piece episode, and now I don't get to watch it.

Damn. Neither TvAnts nor KEYHOLE works this week. I have nowhere to watch the episode...
