Anime series Fullmetal Alchemist has been picked up by YTV for broadcast in Canada.

"This is great news for Fullmetal Alchemist," Gen Fukunaga, president of FUNimation Entertainment told "Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the most popular anime series in the United States and our fans in Canada have been anxious for the series to be broadcast in their country."

Alchemy, the precursor to modern chemistry, is the science of matter and transmutation. The Fullmetal Alchemist series follows 15-year-old Edward Elric, a prodigy known as the Fullmetal Alchemist. Due to an experiment gone wrong when they were younger, Edward and his brother Alphonse paid a heavy price for disobeying the natural laws of science. Now the brothers are on an adventurous quest of the utmost importance: to find the fabled Philosopher's Stone.

"Fullmetal Alchemist is one of those series that really captures its audience," added Fukunaga. "It has an intriguing storyline, great content and incredible animation."

Fullmetal Alchemist has already experienced broadcast success in the US market. The first DVD in the Fullmetal Alchemist series was released in the United States in February 2005 and there have been seven DVDs released to date. According to VideoScan reports for the week of February 05, 2006, all seven are in the top 25 of the best selling anime DVDs.

Fullmetal Alchemist will air on YTV Fridays at 10:00 p.m., with repeat performances at 1:00 a.m., and the Canadian debut will be March 3, 2006.
