    http://geek-news.mtv.com/2011/04/11/...ching-in-june/

    Can anyone confirm this or deny that this article is actually true?

    It should be true. Here is an image. Unless the image is faked, it's real news And if so, I can't wait

    Neither Can I, It's weird how my friend found out about it through MTV, but I wonder what it is going to be about, maybe the movie?

    From the word "prototype", I wonder if that is equivalent to "pilot"? Like the test chapter Arakawa had before the real FMA? That was the impression I got from the title... But you may be right and it could be related to the movie... Or something totally unrelated altogether After all if it was movie related I think they would mention it (to hype the movie)...?

    Quite possibly, Maybe you are onto something about it being the pilot? The only problem I see is that we already know what happens to cause the start of the manga, so it might feel a bit rehashed.

    Re: Full Metal Alchemist "Prototype" One-Shot in June?

    It depends, really. Some pilot chapters are very much similar to the real thing, some are very different. Basically a pilot chapter is used as the mangaka's testing ground. For example, some differences between Death Note and its pilot chapter:
    Spoiler show


    It might feel a little rehashed, depending on how different it is, but I miss FMA so much I probably wouldn't feel it Anyway, I expect we will get more info soon, then we'll be able to say what kind of story it is and whether it is even a "pilot" chapter

    Yes you are right, time will tell? Is the Death Note "Pilot" up somewhere?

    Old news but since it wasn't mentioned in this thread... Yup :3 Can't wait to see it!

    Also, kdowns, the DN pilot is available on some online manga readers like Mangarush

    Here's the cover for this month's Gangan



    It seems that this prototype chapter is basically a manga drawn from the 61 pages of names (drafts, rough sketches) of a one-shot Arakawa had submitted before finally drawing FMA as we knew it. I hope someone scanlates this! Anyway, here's a summary from the news article I read:
    Spoiler: FMA Prototype show

    This makes me happy
    I am really interested in seeing this scanlated by someone, because I know there probably is group somewhere doing it, even though it is just a pages that were just names at a point...

    I think MangaStream might do it, since they did the epilogue chapter. Though really, I'm sure any group would jump at this simply because it's FMA *crosses fingers*

    Having to draw the manuscript for this might have been why Silver Spoon had to take a one-week break

    I think that's why Silver Spoon took a break also, but then again we got 2 chapters when it came back.... And Are you reading Silver Spoon also?

    Re: Full Metal Alchemist "Prototype" One-Shot in June?

    Oh? Is it coming back with expanded pages? I didn't know that! Sweet. Yep, I'm reading it

    I'm pretty excited for this "prototype" and to see how close it is to the FMA we know. I'm most interested to see if alchemy is the same as what Arakawa invented for the FMA world or if it's different, and if so, in what ways. Plus, I wanna see what pre-FMA Ed and Al (and if this Major Alzen was the basis for anyone in the series) look like! The cover of the magazine show Ed and Al as we know them (but then again, the thing about the brother being an armor suit and Ed having metal limbs is not mentioned in the synopsis), but they might have totally different character designs in the prototype. Can't wait
