In addition to plenty of photos starring the franchise’s main duo, Ed and Al, the collection features foes and allies alike, including fan favorites Roy and Riza.
The stage play officially premiered on March 8 in Osaka.
Fullmetal Alchemist began in 2001 as a manga series by Hiromu Arakawa, going on to sell over 80 million volumes worldwide. It was also adapted into popular TV anime series and anime films.
The story follows alchemist brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who lose their mother and parts of their bodies to a failed alchemy attempt. After this, they set out to restore themselves by finding the legendary Philosopher’s Stone.
The franchise includes multiple anime series, anime and live action films, video games, and more. However, this is its first ever stage adaptation.
Sachiko Ishimaru is credited with the script and direction. Yohei Isshiki and Ryota Hirano have been double cast as Edward Elric, while Shuto Mashima will play Alphonse Elric.
Fullmetal Alchemist’s stage play adaptation is currently running at Osaka’s Shin-Kabukiza theater until March 12. It will move to Tokyo’s Nippon Seinen-kan Hall from March 17 to 26, 2022.
