Fullmetal Alchemist Movie Coming to Blu-ray

Posted May 4, 2009 06:35 AM by Juan Calonge

FUNimationIn an early announcement to retailers, FUNimation has revealed that it will bring 'Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa' to Blu-ray on September 29. No technical specs have been announced at this time, though you can expect to see an AVC 1080p video presentation accompanied by Japanese and English Dolby TrueHD soundtracks, with English subtitles.

No special features have been announced at this time. When this title was released on DVD in 2006, it saw two editions: a one-disc release, and a two-disc limited edition.

'Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa' is a 2005 Japanese animated film, which acts as a continuation of the highly-popular 'Fullmetal Alchemist' anime series.

Still have the limited edition 2-disc set and probably keeping it plus I saw it at Anime Expo 2006 before it even went to dvd in America. I will double dip for a Blu-ray version just to listen to the movie in lossless sound. But if I remember correctly Funimation was going to release this a long time ago but then got cancelled they even had a trailer of it in a couple of releases I have.

Not sure if it's a good choice for the non-anime viewer. What was there, 2 seasons before the movie? That might be too much for some to just jump into. Now if Funimation would release the series on blu-ray...

I've already preordered the first two Bluray editions of the new FullMetal Alchemist:Brotherhood series from Amazon Japan, so i'll skip Funi's Bluray version of the FMA Shamballa movie in favor of the new version series Bluray editions.After the way Funi botched the 7 Samurai Bluray set, i doubt i'd ever buy a Bluray set/edition from them again.They've also been letting good properties escape them and have been licensing some real crap instead, which is part of the reason why i've been opting for Japanese DVD/Bluray editions of anime instead.

Never saw the movie, but I'm a big fan of the series. I'll have to check this out!

I'll probably get it, especially if it has all the same extras and stuff as the 2-disc DVD I have now.

Can't wait until they put the series on Blu-Ray too!

Excellent news! Now if FUNimation could issue other titles on Blu from its catalog--Trinity Blood comes to mind...

I have bought every Anime Blu-ray released so far just to show my support so I will buy this too.

BDAcolyte: I second Trinity Blood!

Question is: How come Funimation & Bandai are the only companies releasing Anime Blu-rays? I'm looking at you ADV Films...

Kevtronn,

ADV has been on the verge of collapse for over a year now, and has lost most of their licenses to Funi.If it wasn't for Funi half of Geneon USA's(Geneon Japan is still very much alive and well)and ADV's half released serie(Karin,Kanon,NHK etc.,etc.)would never have seen completion.

ADV is stil alive however and will be(hopefully)releasing a handful of the properties they still own the licenses for on Bluray starting with the Lady Death movie on Bluray sometime next month supposably(their first Bluray).

Thanks Tezs! Now that you mention it, I remember reading about that last year. I really should just start buying the Japanese Anime Blurays but I'm never for sure which ones are subtitled. I read that Macross Frontier (my most wanted) does not have English subtitles so I had stopped there.

Not really interested in Lady Death movie, but will buy to help ADV.

I remember an announcement from ADV several years ago that they were considering Noir to be their first hi-def release (can't remember if it was for HD-DVD or Blu, it was that long ago), but later David Williams backed down at a convention panel, saying ADV had developed a wait-and-see attitude vis-a-vis the format war. You'd think by now ADV might be getting its act together. (I may get a chance to ask David Williams in a few weeks at Anime Boston 2009.)

By the by, I saw FMA: Conqueror of Shamballa at an ordinary neighborhood theater, and thanks to the fangirls and the cosplayers, that ended up as a must-tell story for the grandkids...

Interesting news about ADV. I hope they do start releasing new stuff (especially if they'll release "Noir;" it was one of the first shows I've ever seen, and is still a favorite!).

Tezs Lady Death Blu-ray was cancelled by ADV so don't expect for it to come out within the next few months which is quite sad because even though I also have no interest in that movie but would of bought it just to have ADV bring better series such as Full Metal Panic, Noir, and since Sentai Filmworks is still technically considered as ADV I will add Clannad, and the Tsukihime Lunar Legend that they rescued from Geneon. But Funimation needs to release Kanon, Shuffle, and Air TV plus movie on Blu-ray. Also I can has When They Cry, Shakugan no Shana, Elemental Gelade, Rozen Maiden, and Ergo Proxy on Blu-ray?
