I have no idea ....

However, the first teaser trailer for the second Fullmetal Alchemist film titled "Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Sei-Naru Hoshi" has leaked, with presales beginning this month (November) on the 22nd and premiering next summer. The following staff have been confirmed to work on the film:

Creator: Hiromu Arakawa

Script: Yūichi Shinpo (Whiteout novelist, Doraemon: Shin Nobita no Uchū Kaitakushi)
Character Designer/Chief Animation director: Kenichi Konishi (Tokyo Godfathers)
Animation Production: BONES

"Edward Elric and his younger brother Alphonse tossed by the waves of destiny, the two are still on their journey?." According to the teaser's tagline, the movie will "finally tell the story of forbidden bonds." 

Watch the trailer

Advance tickets will go on sale at participating theaters on November 22, the same day that the 27th and final volume of Hiromu Arakawa's original manga goes on sale. The first round of advance tickets will come with a bonus Edward Elric rubber strap. People who bring the final manga volume when they buy the advance ticket will receive the rubber strap, a special board (shikishi) illustrated by Arakawa, and the opportunity to have their manga volume's "Memorial Stamp Page" imprinted with the "Hagaren Memorial Stamp."

The manga ended in Square Enix's Shonen Gangan magazine in June, and over 50 million copies of the manga have been published.

Hatsune Miku getting a English Version!

Last month at New York Anime Festival, a panel was held with regards to the future of Crypton's Vocaloid series. It was there were plans of a possible English version of Hatsune Miku Vocaloid software would be under heavy consideration if there was enough demand for it. Fans would be able to display their interest in the idea by visiting Hatsune Miku's Facebook page. If her Facebook reaches 39,390 "likes" then we'll soon be hearing the now international virtual idol sensation sing in English. That very goal has been reached today.

According to these two sources(IT Media and Dengeki News), Fujita Saki (original Hatsune Miku CV) has already been in the recording studio for sometime now working on the English project. She did study and learn English phonetics by request of Crypton. Last reported, about 1/3 of it has been completed.

2011 is looking to be an exciting year for Vocaloid fans throughout. And even if it did seem like Crypton had already made their decision for the English software prior to this campaign, you have to admire the supporters for reaching that magic number.

There may have been a number of attempts in the past to have Miku sing in English/Engrish, see sample below, but soon you?ll have access to software dedicated to producing that very task.
