At New York Anime Fest, FUNimation announced the cast for its dub of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood . The list includes many returning favorites from Fullmetal Alchemist , like Vic Mignogna as Edward Elric, but several key members of the cast have changed for the new show.

I was really looking forward to the new episodes of FMA. But wait up who appears out of nowhere... Old characters, who by my eyes, didn't live to see the day in the old episodes. If this is what to expect, Im truly dissapointed :(
Watch episode 1 Right Here! I have been waiting in suspense for a long time, like many others, for the release of the second series of Fullmetal Alchemist 2009. I'm glad to say the wait has finally come to an end. Tonight the first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will air in Japan tonight, at last. 5000 lucky fans already had the chance to see a early pre-premiere yesterday, on the Fullmetal Festival, also in Japan. In even better news, the FMA producers have partnered up with a few big brands which include Vizmedia, Funimation and Animax, to stream the very first episode online starting from april 9th.
It's official! The series is coming back. No confirmation on story or release date as of yet. More info at link below:
Full Metal Alchemist was nominated in six of the eight categories for which it was eligible at the American Anime Awards in February 2007, winning awards in five of them.
