FULL METAL ALCHEMIST By Arakawa Hiromu A long awaited 4-volume manga series that tells the story of young brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric who attempt to use the science of alchemy to bring their mother back to life, with life changing and action packed results. (June) ==============================
If you look at what they said about the Hagaren Manga its said to be a 4 volume series period. But if you remember the news surrounding the full length of the books its likely to have a 20 volume run. My conclusion - bullshit unless the company comes out and says they got it
Well give Viz, the benifit of a doubt with Hagaren; look at how well the core fans enjoy their translation of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto. Wait who am I kidding they completly poo-pood the translation of the Jutsu (Techniques) so Hagaren is in good hands .... hehe hehe he.... RolfKaese, bryantq put those knives back now!!!!
even if they do license them and everything, can't you continue translating? cuz i mean the people completely screw up almost eveything they say. just like that Horus person said about the naruto series, they completely changed the names of the jutsus so i dont think most hagne fans would like them changing what they say and stuff
Hey, would you look at that.. It seems that Time changed it.. Now it says that Full Metal Alchemist is a 9-volume-manga series....

...... How about they say 'ongoing', and get this volume count over with?
And Horus does have a very good point. I am still recovering from shock on what had changed. Not only the jutsus, but the personalities, character names, etc. Next thing you know, VIZ will become like 4Kids and start editting out blood.
Sorry.. I'm a cynic for these things.
Ah, and for the previous post: I suppose legalities prevent many from even daring to make a translation. But then again, sites like Naruto Fan aren't unknown to the world, and VIZ surely knows about it, but it doesn't seem there has been an action to remove the manga from Naruto Fan..
My question: Will distributing through the IRC Channels be happening?

could scans of the originals still be posted, in that case? at least for those of us who can speak japanese, can't we at least be humored with the real thing if a translation can no longer be provided?
