Fullmetal Alchemist New Mystery Project Announced
Square Enix has launched a new website titled ‘Vengeance-Scar’. The website was launched as part of the 20th-anniversary celebrations of the manga. The website will release all official updates on the coming projects from the Franchise. A new visual was launched on the website, hinting at the next big project. The visual included a close-up shot of the Ishvalan anti-hero Scar. The caption below the picture read, ‘if there is a creator, there is also a destroyer.
Copies of these visuals were handed out as flyers in the local movie theatres in Japan. Furthermore, the website added a countdown that will end in March 2022. After the countdown ends, the franchise will reveal a big surprise project. It is still unclear what the new project is going to be. However, fans predict that it could be a new live-action film or stage play.
Is The Anime Returning?
As of now, there is no official news regarding the anime returning. However, given the popularity of the series, it is possible. Square Enix confirmed that the new website would release news on the upcoming projects from the franchise. So, it is possible that FMA will return with an anime soon. The recent light novels by Hiromu Arakawa are proof that the author could return to work on some future projects. With the manga celebrating twenty years of completion, now is the perfect time to unveil updates about a new anime. We will update the website with the latest news, so keep an eye out.
Fullmetal Alchemist New Project: Expected Plot Details!
Based on the visual and the title of the website, it is clear that the new project will center around Scar. The caption under the visual was a nod to the unique method of Alchemy that Scar uses. His right arm has the alchemy tattoo that belonged to his brother. Scar uses this arm to destroy things instead of creating. The true form of alchemy that the other characters use is for creation. However, the advanced method that Scar uses pauses midway in the transmutation and only destroys things.
Hence, the new project could be a stand-alone film that retells the story of Scar from his childhood to his present. Despite being a recurrent character, there are many things that are unclear about Scar. The new project could attempt to address these mysteries around the character. Another character from the series Windy also received a light novel series told from her point of view. So, the franchise may do something similar with Scar.
