What You Will See On The Back Of The 20th Volume Of The Fullmetal Alchemist Manga
What it means: BONES is not very good at keeping a secret as we’ve come to learn recently, but apparently they aren’t very good at keeping a white lie up for long either. Remember that leaked document about a Fullmetal Alchemist sequel that BONES went on record to vehemently deny having any truth. Well apparent BONES were actually the ones keeping the truth and there is a sequel on the way. That bit of text on the back of volume #20 is the announcement for a new animated TV series, date, plot and cast unknown.
What I think about it: Oh Bones, why did you have to play out the Anasazi episode of the X-Files, why couldn’t you just admit it straight up. Whatever though, I forgive because I am excited. I can’t wait to see what I hope is the inevitable reunion of Romi Paku and Rie Kugimiya as the Elric brothers and more thinly veiled lesbian tension between them in DVD exclusive interviews. Now all that’s left to speculate is the plot. I can’t wait to go back to that early 20th century based alternate universe Germany setting though. That was one of the most interesting parts about the original series for me. Seeing the differences and similarities between our universe and the Elric brothers universe all because of the absence of advanced technology in favour of alchemy.
Whatever the case BONES is continuing it’s roll of interesting series to look forward to and even to watch as Xam’d proves interesting as any of their shows are. They don’t maintain the tie for my favourite anime studio by sitting around twiddling their thumbs, that’s for damn sure. 🙂
