Manga Entertainment UK have today announced, via the latest podcast episode, that the previously confirmed complete Blu-ray box set of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will now be released as two separate parts.

Originally the idea was for Manga UK to release the complete series on one eight-disc Blu-ray set, however due to distribution rights it will now be released over two four-disc Blu-ray sets, which mimic’s how the series was released in America last year. The first half of the series will contain Episodes 1 – 33 and it will be released on the 27th May 2013, where as the second half of the series will contain episodes 34 – 64 and it will be released on the 14th October 2013.

Furthermore the first half (i.e Part 1) will include a UK-Exclusive art box / carded sleeve which can fit both half-season sets into it, thus giving the impression that you own a complete series box set.

Both half-season sets will be priced at a SRP of £45.99, but online prices will be slightly cheaper and Manga UK will continue to release the individual volumes (parts) of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood at a SRP of £24.99, with Part 4 also being released on the 27th May 2013.

The first half of the series will be released on the 27th May 2013, but for the mean time Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Part 3, which contains Episodes 27 – 39, has today just been released onto Blu-ray (you can read our review here).
