Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos Screens Tuesday Night; Prepare to Be Geeked

Categories: Film
A special presentation Tuesday evening of Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos folds into periodic gatherings by devotees of anime, manga and Asian music leading up to a June convention at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The film, which opened last July in Japan, makes its local premiere at 7:30 p.m. a few steps west of the Convention Center, at the UltraLuxe cinemas at GardenWalk.

Set within the second storyline of the manga series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos was was directed by Kazuya Murata, written by Yūichi Shinpo and produced by Bones, as was the first Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa.

The second film has the Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse, tracking a fugitive to a distant valley of slums inhabited by a proud but oppressed people known as the Milos. The brothers' hunt for the criminal is complicated by a rising rebellion and Alphonse's fondness for Julia, a young alchemist at the center of it all. Actually, more than Ed and Al realize.

Fanboys know this stuff like the back of a girl group singer's plaid school skirt, so if you're bored by the fantastical, have no interest in what power can be unleashed by the mythical Philosopher's Stone or are freaked out by characters who appear Eastern Euro trashy, this may not be the way to spend $7.50 if you're a student or senior citizen or $11 if you're anyone else.

It this is right up your alley, you'll be good and primed for AM2, the animation, music and manga convention running June 15-17 at Anaheim Convention Center and nearby hotels. Unlike other conventions, AM2 requires no badges nor an admission fee.

Order tickets to Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos online through UltraLuxe.
