The new Fullmetal Alchemist teaser trailer ran at the end of the episode of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season that aired in Japan on Sunday. The trailer says, "New training … a fullmetal artificial limb, a body of armor … the brothers' journey begins. Fullmetal Alchemist: April 2009 Training. In this palm, is there hope or despair?"
The new television anime series was confirmed on the wraparound
jacket band of the 20th volume of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga in August. However, a document with leaked information about animators who worked at BONES had already mentioned the possibility of "Hagane 2" ("Iron/Fullmetal 2") in July. Viz Media published the 17th volume of the manga version in North America this October, while FUNimation Entertainment released both the first television series and its theatrical movie finale.

Now, feast your eyes on my NEW favorite female character from Bleach.
As you can see, she is a fanservice-oholics dream.
And, judging from the amount of fanart out there for her, she is only going to get more popular the more we see of her in both the manga and anime.
Along with the fanart for Halibel, there has also been quite a bit of cosplay done to her as well.
