Cartoon Network to Air Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
On February 13th Adult Swim will begin airing the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Essentially a recasting of the original story found in the manga of Hiromu Arakawa, the Elric brothers are back on the journey to find a magical artifact that will heal their bodies. Remember, their first experiment with alchemy, a failed bid to revive their dead mother, left Edward with deformed limbs and Alphonse’s soul permanently inhabiting a suit of armor.
Produced by Mike McFarland and directed by McFarland and Caitlin Glass, this segment marks the return of numerous original voice actors: Vic Mignogna (Edward), Caitlin Glass (Winry Rockbell), Travis Willingham (Roy Mustang), Laura Bailey (Lust), Sony Strait (Maes Hughes), and Mike McFarland (Jean Havoc).
The airing dates for February are as follows:
Episode 01 – Fullmetal Alchemist, premieres February 13
The Elric brothers adjust to military life and take part in a manhunt for the dangerous Isaac the Freezer, a former State Alchemist bent on bringing Fuhrer Bradley down.
Episode 02 – The First Day, premieres February 20
A glimpse into the past reveals the pain and desperation that drove the Elric boys to break alchemy’s greatest taboo – human transmutation – and their reasons for becoming dogs of the military.
Episode 03 – City of Heresy, premieres February 27
Science and faith collide when the Elrics confront Father Cornello. He claims to work miracles, but the brothers suspect he is abusing a Philosopher’s Stone to manipulate his flock.
