The date for the Fullmetal Alchemist exhibition has finally been announced! It will be held from 16 September – 29 October 2017 at Tokyo Dome Gallery AaMo in Tokyo and from 3-30 November 2017 in the Osaka Nanko ATC Museum, Osaka. The exhibition also revealed a visual by original creator Hiromu Arakawa.
The visual shows many of the popular characters, like Edward Elric and his younger brother Alphonse Elric, along with Winry, Mustang, and more. This is the first time in five years that a new Fullmetal Alchemist illustration by Hiromu Arakawa has been released since the final volume of the manga came out in September 2012. At the exhibition, fans will find more than 100 objects, such as manga illustrations and pages of the original manuscript. Aside from the illustrations, there will also be some artwork especially-drawn for this exhibition.
Fullmetal Alchemist will also be represented at AnimeJapan 2017 this weekend, where the new visual will be available as a poster, and there will also be flyers with information on the exhibition and the live action movie, which comes out 1 December 2017. At the Warner Brothers booth, you will also be able to see the costume of Mustang. It was produced to look exactly like the manga and was worn by Dean Fujioka, who plays Mustang in the live action movie.
Director Fumihiko Sori, who is currently busy with post-production of the movie, said, ‘The staff and cast all believe that they can make a good live action version for the story, so the motivation on the set was always high. I want to finish the work on this movie carefully and keep the essence of the original work so as to not disappoint the fans.’
