I think I’ve got the manga cut you guys are looking for
FMA:B:R (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Re:edited) is a project I’ve been working on for a couple of months now. It’s not 100% manga accurate, as I elected to use some parts of 2003 that fit just as well (if not better) into the Brotherhood Storyline. I did use the Manga’s story progression though (backstory doesn’t hit until Dublith, use of the train battle and mining town in manga-accurate locations, etc.), so I think you guys’ll enjoy it!
I’m not allowed to post download links here, but links are available through my Youtube channel (under the same username) on any video in the FMA:B:R playlist
I also have some editorials and an introduction video on my youtube channel (under the same username), if you guys are interested.
P.S. since 2003 already adapted and made plot-relevant the Manga Side Stories (The military exam becoming Fullmetal vs. Flame, for instance), I chose not to include them in my edit. Otherwise, everything should be accounted for!
Apologies that the current release is only in dubbed form; reframing the 2003 footage means I can’t use any hard-coded subtitle track, so unless somebody can procure an isolated subtitle track for 2003 all I can make is a dubbed release (fortunately FMA’s dub is one of the best out there, so I think it’s still plenty watchable).
