Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist series has launched a new 20th anniversary project, and a visual featuring Scar was released alongside a special website with the domain vengeance-scar.jp. On the website, it’s teased that Scar will play a key role in the new project. Check out the visual:
In addition, there is a line saying “If there is a’creator’, there is also a ‘destroyer'”, along with a countdown that says “IN 13 DAYS”. This means some more information might be revealed on March 2, 2022.
Fullmetal Alchemist is the most popular manga from Hiromu Arakawa, who also returned with Yomi no Tsugai after over 10 years. Square Enix publisher’s Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine was publishing the FMA manga from July 2001 up until June 2010. The manga had 27 volumes in total and sold over 80 million copies. The series also received 2 anime adaptations: Fullmetal Alchemist in 2003 and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood in 2009.
Alchemy: the mystical power to alter the natural world; something between magic, art, and science. When two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, dabbled in this power to grant their dearest wish, one of them lost an arm and a leg…and the other became nothing but a soul locked into a body of living steel. Now Edward is a agent of the government, a slave of the military-alchemical complex, using his unique powers to obey orders…even to kill. Except his powers aren’t unique. The world has been ravaged by the abuse of alchemy. And in the pursuit of the ultimate alchemical treasure, the Philosopher’s Stone, their enemies are even more ruthless than they are… (Yen Press)
The new project for the 20th anniversary of Fullmetal Alchemist seems interesting, and it seems like Scar will be the center of it! Let’s look forward to some more information in March.
