Well, it's not that I expected it to be aired in the Netherlands.
But there are DVD's of FMAB with Dutch subs so that good too!

Norway? The fuck? How did I not know about this until now? Oh, whatever. Eclipse subs are best.

OK. I'm not sure if I am, but sorry for the rudeness, but fuck off. What's with this Bulgaria thing on top. OK... I can watch the series in you tube which is grate, but how the fu*ck they expect me to know Finnish, Danish or Italian... Nothing against those countries, but I don't know those languages. I know english and Bulgarian. And yes, right, there's no english nor Bulgarian subs. Thanks for the legal way to watch this. And thanks for the stopped DVDs of the first anime.
Really - fansub will prosper with this kind of licenses...

I wouldn't watch it on TV even it if was aired here in the Netherlands, I prefer watching it online / RAW. I just don't like rushing home just to watch a show, because I'm not home most of the time if I have school.

Wait a minute, Portugal is actually going to get a airing anime licensed O.O I am speachless.

Still official subs suck, I remember they translating Ed being angry because he is short by ED being angry because he his thin.

Exactly my reaction... Can't believe an actual AWESOME anime series is being licenced in Portugal. Both in youtube AND in a TV station! Something must be wrong here.

After I lol'd about the ' Former Yugoslavia thing' I cried about the Netherlands not being on that list, we're still stuck with that damned pokemon stuff -_-

Yeah... now thing about every manga you have in your language. We have... yeah right - NONE
I'm glad I can watch FMAB legaly here in Bulgaria. After DVDs of original FMA, and few Ghibli movies, thiis is very nice.

I'm not sure what to do with this. I just noticed that this is the official and (thus the legal way?) to watch FMA, even though a friend of mine linked me to an episode when it was hot stuff. I didn't pay much attention to the uploader or anything, just thought it was a bunch of fansubs thrown together (and had a hard time figuring out how to even get the correct language to show).

Anyway now I'm faced with a moral dilemma. :P The Youtube stream is very much watchable and the Finnish subs don't seem too awkward, but I still feel uneasy with them. :/ English has been the way to go for all the anime so far, as I figure is the case with many others too. But but but but, aeeehh what to do what to do... ;_;

ROTFL, 3 days late and they still can call this "simultaneous broadcast"?
V3gas said:
Simultaneous broadcast =/= 3 days later? Right.

Simultaneous in Europe. Three days later than in Japan yes, but the broadcast is done at the same time in every country they're broadcasted in (in Europe). If someone starts following the series through Youtube or whatever, it's the same one week interval between episodes anyway.

Great news, but I still prefer English fansubs over Norwegian subs.
Also, they translated the Japanese alchemist titles into English, instead of keeping the Japanese titles or translating them to Norwegian? Nice.

Simultaneous broadcast =/= 3 days later? Right.

I am from Israel and I don't care.
Also like that I am watching FMAB (Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhod) in the day after it airs in Japan (With fansubs of course) ^___^

It would be bad to waste such an opportunity, wouldn't it? I'll probably marathon all available episodes at weekend (not specifying which weekend it will be :P )

It's probably first anime to be so quickly available in Poland through legal means. Normally, it would take at least one year.

Dear anyone living in the UK, works in your country, stop complaining.
