FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST Live-Action Movie Gets a Music Video

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST Live-Action Movie Gets a Music Video

For the better part of two decades, fans of Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist have followed the journey of Edward and Alphonse Elric, a pair of brothers whose lives were upended by an alchemical experiment gone wrong. Next month, a Fullmetal Alchemist live-action feature film will finally come out in Japan. As part of the build up for the movie, Misia has released a new music video for her song from the film’s soundtrack.

Via Anime News Network, Misia’s song is called “Kimi no Soba ni Iru yo,” which roughly translates to “I’m by your side.” That’s an appropriate theme for both the song and the movie, as Misia seemingly steps into the role of Edward, and helps Alphonse put himself back together in his armored form. As fans for the series already know, Alphonse’s entire body was lost to an accident, and his soul is bound to the armor. Edward and Alphonse’s ongoing quest is to find a way to restore their human bodies.

Alphonse also gets a chance to show off some of his offensive capabilities in the video, while Misia takes Edward’s powers of transmutation for herself and appears to enter the Gate of Alchemy; which leads to God’s domain and it is said to be the source of all alchemical knowledge.

Fullmetal Alchemist will be released in Japan on Friday, December 1. It will eventually get a limited U.S. release, but a premiere date has not yet been announced.
