For those of you who don't care for simulcasts because they don't want to have to read tiny subtitles on a small screen, Cartoon Network and FUNimation have announced that Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will air on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block starting Saturday, at 12 AM. Sadly, the broadcast will be in Standard Definition only, with no High-Def broadcast even on Cartoon Network's HD channel. Still, this is a great announcement for Fullmetal Alchemist fans - the first DVD release isn't until May 25th, so this is a good way to fill the gap until it comes out. Will you be watching?
