While not well versed in the Anime realm, I am thrilled to represent Fan Fest News in what appears to be a most exciting event! Anime NYC is the perfect opportunity to immerse myself into something new and introduce our readers to this colorful world. I must admit, after having heard rave reviews, I am most looking forward to the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film’s exclusive US Premiere on November 19 as the Closing Film of the inaugural Anime NYC convention!

Fullmetal Alchemist, which tells the story of two alchemist brothers seeking the Philosopher’s Stone, is one of the year’s most anticipated films in Japan and for anime fans around the world, with its original manga series has sold over 70 million copies worldwide! Fullmetal Alchemist Director Fumihiko Sori will make a rare appearance at Anime NYC to introduce the film and sign autographs for fans before the debut, which will be the film’s first screening in the US ahead of its premiere in Japanese theaters later this year. This special ticketed event is sold out.
