But I don't understand how they are going to do it because the story diverted a lot from the manga (>_<)?

Wonder how they'll start the series

I'm a follower of the manga so I'm pretty excited to see those awesome fight scenes animated

(btw, everything in FMA is the same until Hughes's death)

Suprised but not thrilled, even if it's a sequel or a remake, I'm having double thoughts about this one =/

YAY!
I never thought they would actually make a second series, since they differed the ending of the anime to the manga.

Well not exactly. The story outline is similar but how events are executed and how they should have happened differs. Its like comparing Tsukihime(there's no tsukihime anime, there's no tsukihime anime...) anime to Tsukihime game or TC (Studio Beetrain, burn in hell) anime to TRC manga.

The execution is different, scenes are different, character reactions are different.

begin from anew and redo the entire series :) (like Hellsing Ultimate)

So, is it a whole new series following the manga more closely, or is it a continuation from the original anime?

Hope it's a remake. If they are going to make another world-transfer for Ed and Al to return to amestris, it will be a complete filure, imho.
Made me curious.

FMA based entirely off the manga will be nice. Bones did a good job writing their own original story line once they were forced to diverge from the manga, but the manga's story is just much much better IMO.

l'm going to squeal.
Maybe the series would be about another person [like how YGO 5D and GX is].
