It’s coming! So far, in addition to US and Canada, I have seen fans from the Singapore, Italy, and the UK confirming the listing on their respective country’s Netflix, so it looks like it will be a pretty wide release.
As you already know, Netflix is all about viewership, especially viewership in the first week of release. This is like the box office numbers for them and they make future business decisions about FMA or even other films in the same genre using those numbers. Please try to watch it on Netflix (not pirated) as soon as possible. There is a 1-month free trial anyway.
In US and Canada, the shows are usually released at midnight PST. I’ve been told that Netflix released shows at the same time worldwide, so the movie may not be available until the afternoon your time, depending on where you are. You will have to check with your country’s Netflix.
Thanks for the confirmations in the comments! It is also confirmed for Argentina, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Mexico, Australia, Dutch, Sweden, and the Philippines so far. I don’t think I can keep up with the confirmations, so please leave a comment or check the comments for your country. :-) It does look like it will be available to most of the countries Netflix operates in.
Yesterday, I finally watched Hanamizuki. I thought it would be boring or too long, but I really fell in love with this movie. The song “Hanamizuki” by Hito Yo is already perfect, but the movie is so cute. I never was a big fan of Ikuta Toma, even in Hana Kimi, but now I fell in love with him too, ahaha.
Well, It was impossible for me to not share this feeling. Yui Aragaki, Ikuta Toma, Misako Renbutsu, Mukai Osamu and all the others actors in Hanamizuki are flawless.
