Prepare to Relive 2010 Anime Feels With Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Trailer


Hiromu Arakawa’s popular manga series and anime Fullmetal Alchemist is getting a live-action adaptation and the trailer promises copious amounts of action, alchemy, and Elric brother feels. Directing is Fumihiko Sori, most famous for the 2002 film Ping Pong–another manga adaptation. Fans have been looking forward to this for a while and I’d definitely give an arm and a leg for some good live-action alchemy.

From the teaser, it looks like the film will follow the original closely, with the focus being Edward and Alphonse Elric’s quest to get their bodies back. Ryosuke Yamada plays Edward, and a quick glance at the cast list tells us most of our favorite homunculi and alchemists will be making an appearance (including Shou Tucker and Maes Hughes, so y’know, prepare to relieve that). How they’ll condense the series into one movie is unclear, but Sori’s experience with anime and adaptation (he also directed 2001 Nights, Ashita no Joe, and Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker) lends him a lot of credibility.

Fullmetal Alchemist is scheduled for a winter 2017 release in Japan. What do you think about it so far?
