ADVANCED WARNING: Starting in September, the new FMA episodes will start...(UPDATED!!!!)

Green_Bird 03-25-2005 09:55 PM
Just giving everyone advanced warning of the impending break in-between Episode 26 and episode 27 of FMA. This due in part FUNi only has 26 of the episodes done. So....The show will be off the saturday block for a while and PROBABLY come back sometime at the end of the year.

The above information I have gathered from the ANN forum and the FMA LJ community. Will update if events warrant (If there are any updates). To see the full AS press release, go here. To see the new anime shows go here....

This sucks...I mean sure...theres always a break in-between shows due to having only half of the series dubbed or otherwise. I'll miss the show in its break seeing as how I never seen the fan subs....Oh well it will be back, Give the VAs time....


See my latest post.....

Seesh! What is up with these channels showing only half a series and stuff?

First ROD the TV, then Full Metal Alchemist?

Bloody fracking heck!

I know, it's very disappointing, especially in a series like FMA where you need to see each episode to get the most out of it. If they weren't done dubbing it, they should have waited to air it until they were. We do have a plan in mind for the meantime, but I hope the break isn't too long for anyone seeing the series for the first time... Frown

Crying Noooooo!

I guess it makes sense but I've been enjoying the show and I just can't wait to see more of it. I guess I'll live... barely. Tongue

guys dont forget adult swim extends to 6 AM on March 28th, so there is still a chance that it might stay on, just at a later time.

Great. More reasons for this community to hate Adult Swim.
Instro 03-27-2005 10:57 PM
Well, that does blow chunks. BUT, as an artist who understands what goes into doing something right, I will apply the necessary patience needed.

I'll just keep buying the FMA DVDs as they are issued and wait with great anticipation until it comes back on AS.

It's amazing how things get fudged up when there are too many cooks in the soup.

Hey, I just got laid off by a place where there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians!

Let's all take a deep breath and let Clinkenbeard and Company do their jobs well at Funimation and enjoy the result when it's done, whenever that will be.

Either way, those will be repeats, since the dubbing is incomplete. Also, if it is on very late, it's unlikely that anyone will be able to catch it consistently.

What peeves me the most is that, because of the break, the flow of the series is thrown off. I think this is the problem the majority of people have, too.

Ideally, when the new episodes are put on they will be preceded by repeats of all the preceding episodes. That generally tends to be the case, though, so hopefully it happens.

I do not really think it is intelligent to start hating AdultSwim over something like this; it is not their fault the series has not been completely dubbed. The only alternative, then, would be waiting to air the series until it has been completely dubbed, and that would have had a negative reaction, too.

I think this whole Adult Swim problem can only be saved if they show Adult Swim 4 hours earlier, it seems they either get screwed all the time or they just want to show later and later and no one to sleep at all.

But that won't happen, due to the fact that content of that nature can only be shown at that specific time slot.

That is my theory of why Adult Swim is screwed and should have there own channel that would be great.

The Adult Swim Channel...now that would be awesome! It would probably only be available through digital cable or on demand, though.

From this FMA site:

"I thought this was worth mentioning, reruns of FMA will start airing, no not in Japan again.

Reruns will start from Episode 1 and will air weeknights [Monday-Wednesday?] at 1:00am [and 4:00am] starting May 16. Also, Episode 26 will air on May 7."

"Weeknights" in this case may possibly mean just Monday - Wednesday, because Sundays are reserved for the comedy Adult Swim stuff, and Thursdays are reserved for the rebroadcasts of the episodes first broadcast on Saturday. At three episodes a week, it will take approximately 9 weeks to complete one lap of episodes. If they wait until November to pick up from where they left off, they will have aired 3 laps of episodes. Smile


So....it looks like episodes 1-26 will start again on weekdays. (The title of this thread has been change to reflect that.) So...if you missed any of the first half of the series....May 16th will be the chance to catch them again.....Guess we won't be seeing Wrath, or find out who Sloth, Pride and the boys' father really are anytime soon (I know alredy having been semi-spoiled. I don't know how it fully ends, but I know things...)...At least we will be seeing Izumi and Sigu before it takes a break....

Just wanted to let everyone know about this. Though it does still suck....
Captain Maw 04-18-2005 12:31 AM
well, that's good. most likely mon-wed. they play all rerun things on that time (like big-0)
i haven't seen the first episodes, so my prayers have been answered. but near the end of the year?!?! that's so long. it does blow.
Advinius 05-09-2005 02:18 PM
great, i just start watching this great show a few weeks ago, and now it's switching over to 1:00 in the morning on days i work.

*sigh* time to try and exorcize the demons from the vcr again... maybe this time it'll actually record the right way.
Green_Bird 07-04-2005 01:56 PM
Good news, new episodes will start in August! Many are thinking that they will start the 27th, the Saturday right after Paranoia Agent ends it's 13 episode run on 20th. But that date isn't offical yet, only speculation BUT 27-51 WILL RUN IN AUGUST...Just thought that you guys might like to know some important news.....

Woohoo! That is awesome news. I am so glad that the rest of the series is going to be running soon. I'm dying to finish watching the series. I just hope it comes on at the time it originally aired, because I'd like to be able to pay attention to the show without being distracted by things like sleep.

oh well ill take what i can get.
