Greetings anime fans! I got some good news for you if you are in the mood to watch a classic or try a series you been wanting to try. Funimation announced today that today, fans will be able to watch two Aniplex anime: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and seasons 1 and 2 of Black Butler. Black Butler fans will be able to even watch the 7 OVA episodes. All 64 episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist will be available for fans. Both these anime will be in English Dubbed and Subbed. In the past, through a deal, Funimation teamed up with Aniplex and released these anime through the ownership of Funimation. However, once the license to these anime expired, Aniplex took these anime and sold them through their markets. If you want to watch these anime without having to spend money on the Blu-Ray sets, you can start watching today through Funimation. These anime will be available on 11/20 at 4pm ET.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood synopsis:
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an updated adaptation of the original manga, sticking close to the source material. The series follows Edward and Alphonse Elric on a search for the Philosopher’s Stone after a terrible accident costs Al his human form and Ed his arm and a leg.
The beloved series, which aired from 2009 to 2010, is heralded by fans as one of the greatest anime ever made. On MyAnimeList, it’s the highest-rated series and #4 in popularity, proving its staying power over the years.
Black Butler seasons 1 and 2 synopsis:
Ciel Phantomhive was born into a life of luxury, only to have his beloved parents brutally murdered before his eyes. Wrought with grief and tortured by the very fiends who killed his mother and father, Ciel summoned the services of Sebastian Michaelis, born of the fires of hell.
Together, they’ll turn merry old England on its ear while hunting the mysterious villains who made Ciel an orphan.
Huh, that’s a surprise!
Definitely is a surprise. I bet Funimation is trying to get back the anime that was shared with Aniplex.
