Was this really necessary? did they reaaallly need to ruin such an amazing and popular anime? The answer is no….but it’s happening anyway! Fullmetal Alchemist will be a live-action movie. Easily one of Arakawa Hiromu’s best works, they had no choice but to squeeze out the success it had and make it live for us to see!
It will be interesting to see how they transfer the magical elements, the suit of armor that Edward’s brother Alphonse is trapped in and other Alchemy being used into a live adaptation. Since I had just finished seeing Attack on Titan live-action and it was a big disappointment….I really hope with this movie they do not leave key points out and put an effort into catering to the fans needs and doing better job.
The movie is set to premier this summer sometime, not sure of the exact date as yet. So far the Role of Edward Elric will be played by (Sigh) Yamada Ryosuke from the Idol group Hey!Say!JUMP. He also starred in the live action adaptation of Assassination Classroom. That is all that is known for now!
Thanks for Reading!
