So yes, it is really about to happen! This is not a drill. Arakawa is getting back to work, and the project will be shared in time for Fullmetal Alchemist's 20th birthday.
According to MangaMogura over on Twitter, Arakawa will reveal her new project this summer in an issue of Shonen Gangan. The tease also says Arakawa will share news that "fans don't want to miss", so that bit of information has netizens curious. It has been a couple of years since some time since Arakawa launched a new series, but her most recent debut was wildly popular.
Currently, Arakawa does the artwork for The Heroic Legend of Arslan, and she stepped out with an original series in 2011 titled Silver Spoon. Of course, her most popular series is Fullmetal Alchemist which debuted back in 2001. The story ended nine years later, and fans have long wondered if Arakawa would revisit the series. So as this big announcement draws nearer, you can place your own bets on what you believe Arakawa is keeping busy with.
