I love the Roy and Riza covers! biggrin.gif As usually, Arakawa draws them beautifully.

For five? Hmm... My guess is also Winry.

So far of the 4 covers, Riza is definitely my favorite. I love how she is holding a rifle and the bullet in the air is such a nice effect.

Anyways I am hoping for Winry, Ling, May, and Ran Fan covers in the future!

Thank you, Michiyo-! Riza cover look awesome in high res!! I see she just shot the gun and she is pulling the lever to load the next bullet, and the spent empty shell casing flying is a nice touch! I love it!

All of the covers look fantastic, but as everyone has already said, Riza's is my favorite. It's such a great composition!

And I feel really awkward asking this because usually I understand the details of what all the merchandise is, but what is this unabridged release? Like, what are the contents? ^^; Though from my understanding it's just a special re-release of the manga, kind of like the omnibus editions VIZ is releasing?

Heza, no worries, I bet there are other FMA fans wondering about that, too. ^^
And, yes, you basically got it right, but Michiyo- kindly explained it very well while back, so let me re-post her explanation. ^^

QUOTE (Michiyo- @ Jul 5 2011, 05:14 AM) *
...The difference between the unabridged edition and the regular edition is that the unabridged edition's size is larger, the covers are newly drawn, they contain color pages (pages that were color in Gangan magazine, but were black & white in the regular edition). Also, they contain 6 chapters instead of 4 (so there'll be 18 volumes altogether instead of 27).
Plus, they're twice the price (1000 Yen, while the regular is 420 Yen).

Welcome to our board, redon23, and thank you so much for sharing those pics!! happy.gif

Wow, they look awesome! Having larger size book really adds the intensity of this awesome manga, IMO, and color pages really pop up!

I love the newly added Ed drawing! wub.gif

These are sketches of early design stage of Ed, with newly added Arakawa-sensie's comments.

I added translations biggrin.gif

Thank you, redon23 for posting pics of Vol. 1, I really like that new Ed drawing and the sketches. Thanks for adding the translations, Tombow! biggrin.gif

Volume 5 is up for pre-order on Amazon.jp, the release date is Aug. 22.
My guess is that Winry will be on the cover. ^^

Hilary has posted a few scans of Vol.1 on Baidu, including new sketches of Roy, Riza and Gluttony. Thank you, hilary! happy.gif


This is the cover pic with the new original drawing by Aralkawa-sensei just for this Vol. This is a removable cover, and this pic is how it looks when spread flat.



Next two are early original sketches of Ed before decided on the final character design, with newly added Arakawa-sensei's comments.
(For translations of Arakawa-sensei's comments, please see Tombow's post above)





This is new Ed drawing by Arakawa just for this vol book. It seems each vol book will have a full-body drawing of the character of the cover of that vol.



Two pics below are drawings you see in this vol book in-between chapters. The "inverted" print is how they are shown in the book.
(Vol. 2 has drawings of Scar, Lust, Maria & Blosch, Barry, then Slicer in the same "inverted" fashion.)

In the drawing Roy says: "Let me light up your heart with my flame." "Bang."
For that Riza comments: "Mind your age, sir." (both quotes are paraphrasing ^^)





I inverted the two sketches:
