As I wrote before, with the way the series have completed (manga and anime), realistically speaking, I don't know how they can or could have made "sequel" and it still being a Fullmetal Alchemist
movie. That's possible but realistically I think it's quite difficult, as Arakawa-sensei made it quite clear that Fullmetal Alchemist has ended
So, this movie to be a Fullmetal Alchemist
movie, I think the most likely choice was to put the movie somewhere during (sidequel) or before (prequel) the existing FMA storyline. But, prequel might be difficult because as the FMA story starts Ed is already quite young. XD Hence, I think the obvious choice, for the commercial
movie-maker, was to make a story somewhere "during" the FMA storyline, and therefore, I'm not surprised, nor in itself disappointed that the story in this movie takes somewhere during the FMA storyline, as I was, realistically speaking, not expecting (hoping, yes, but not expecting XD) this movie to be any extension of the existing FMA storylines. And as such, if this movie is going to be, as some others put it, "one long OVA," that itself is actually fine with me.
But, to me the devil is in the details, and I hope this movie is going to be worthy of both FMA series (FMA-1 and FMA:Brotherhood/manga), and hopefully, they (the movie makers) would keep all the FMA characters in the movie as "in character," and somehow captivate us FMA fans for one hour plus some minutes, or however long this movie would be. (And, if they happen to be able to add any depth to any of the FMA characters or FMA story, that would be a nice bonus!) ..that's my expectations for this new FMA movie. ...that's not asking too much, right?
So...where are more ads/promo and info for the movie? It's already May, and I want more details of the movie!
