About Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Edition Manga Volume 1 (Hardcover)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Fullmetal Edition manga volume 1 features story and art by Hiromu Arakawa.

Alchemy tore the Elric brothers’ bodies apart. Can their bond make them whole again?

A hardcover, deluxe collector’s edition of one of the most beloved manga and anime of all time! Fully remastered with an updated translation and completely fresh lettering, and presented with color pages on large-trimmed archival-quality paper, this gorgeous hardcover edition presents the timeless dark adventures of the Elric brothers as they were truly meant to be seen. Includes brand-new cover art, color inserts and behind-the-scenes character sketches from author Hiromu Arakawa!

In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Equipped with mechanical “auto-mail” limbs, Edward becomes a state alchemist, seeking the one thing that can restore his and his brother’s bodies…the legendary Philosopher’s Stone.

If you don't own FMA on physical form, start here! .... But if you do, Still buy this IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY

by -

So we all know and love Fullmetal Alchemist, some of us grew up on the series other reading the manga, me personally I watched the reboot of the anime but I still felt like I wanted more, and it was at that exact moment when I was about to order the 3-1 editions, I witnessed with my own eyes this beautiful new artwork cover and I said "This is what I was waiting for".

I have not read the manga before, neither brought any of the single editions, and for a series like this, I didn't just wanted to read it physically, I wanted to show off as a collector piece, when I read that it was a hardcover edition with color pages I assumed it was gonna look great on my shelf, and it does. Even the red chrome lettering is included for more fine detail as a book itself

Just Grab this you'll enjoy it!

Couldn't be Happier!

5/5 stars for the shipping and handling:
- It got here four days earlier than expected (Wahoo!).
- Was packaged well on all sides, and wrapped.
- The volume looked pretty great to me, in terms of condition.

5/5 for the product:
- Paper quality is excellent.
- Some pages were given color, which was really nice to see.
- The artwork/text appeared to be darker(?), which made it easier to follow. (Could've just been my eyes)
- It's FMA... Come on!

Just figured I'd share some quick thoughts on my purchase. If you're on the fence, get it. You won't be sorry. It's well worth it!

Beautiful Book

by -

If you are buying this you are probably already a fan of Fullmetal Alchemist so I will just review the quality of the book.

It was shipped very quickly and with no damage which was a plus.
The cover was beautiful with the picture of Edward Elric glistening.
The pages are the highest quality Manga pages I have ever seen it felt like you could write on the paper I was even tempted to colour in my favourite characters the page quality was so nice.
The coloured pages are absolutely stunning.
This Manga is definitely worth the price highly recommended!!!!

A Collectors Dream!

The first installment in this glorious series is absolutely amazing. The paper quality is great (especially compared to the 3-in-1 editions!) and the binding is sturdy. The cover art is absolutely beautiful, and photographs don't do it justice. There is a clear glossy finish transmutation circle printed on the back cover, which I wasn't aware of originally. It made me so happy I spent a little extra for the Fullmetal edition!

The series is a masterpiece. But This book has pros and cons.

by -

Fullmetal Alchemist the Manga in general is amazing. If you have not read it than you should. This is actually the second time buying it because I want the Fullmetal edition format.
Pros:
First, Pages are slightly larger than standard edition.
Second, incredibly well printed. feels like a semi-gloss photo paper.

However, Unfortunately there is two Cons of this edition.
First the hard cover makes my usual method of reading manga difficult with how I hold it.
Second, the Red Metallic font on the cover actually rubs off/scratched easily. So you really have to be careful what surface you set this on to read it if you're going to.

High quality edition!

by -

The Fullmetal Edition of Fullmetal Alchemist has high quality paper and a very study hardcover. The red print on the front and spine is metallic and shiny. Definitely the way to go for collectors and non-collectors alike. Contains 1 and 1/2 volumes (equivalent to what was included in the Japanese Perfect Editions.)

Beautiful Collectible Manga

The second I saw this in a physical store, I fell in love and ran to Right Stuf to get my hands on a copy. The covers and spines of the Fullmetal Edition volumes are visually stunning. The pages are high quality and have a nice glossy feel. Definitely worth collecting if you're a fan of FMA/FMAB.
