Thank you, Michiyo- for the news! biggrin.gif

I'm so looking forward to finding out the covers for Vol 3 & 4!
I agree with Michiyo-, one of them got to be Roy. biggrin.gif

Thank you for the news, Michiyo-! And I agree with both you and Tombow. One of the covers must have Roy on it. biggrin.gif

Amber1003 has brought news that you can get special collectible postcards with volumes one and two, depending on where you buy them. ohmy.gif

From JBOOK you get an homunculi postcard (and two others have question marks on them. laugh.gif)



From Yurindo you get two postcards featuring Ed, Al, the Xingese characters, Team Mustang, Olivier etc.



And from Futaba tosho there's a postcard with Armstrong, Sig, Izumi etc.



Like Amber1003 says, it's a little harsh for those who want to collect them all! laugh.gif

Thanks for posting those postcards, A Pierrot's Aria, they all look great! ^^

A CM promoting the books is up on Gangan's site:

Some screenshots:




Also, here are the full cover images:



There's a special page on amazon.jp with a list of all FMA publications and a small history of FMA.

And, a wallpaper from Gangan Online:

I will be getting them from Yes Asia, unfortunately that means no special gifts but I am in financial straits right now so I have to go with the cheapest option.

I miss when free gifts just came with the book no matter who you bought it from. Well who knows maybe I will get lucky and be able to get something from Yahoo Japan.


Btw I also heard that if you get the all books from Animate they will be giving out a box for the first six volumes.


And does anyone know how many volumes are in 1?

<6 chapters in Unabridged edition Vol. 1., total of 18 volumes. ^^ ~ Board Staff>

Thank you, Michiyo- and A Pierrot's Aria for the news and pics of these cards and bookmarks! They look awesome!! biggrin.gif

But, yes, I have to agree that it's cruel that if we want to collect all the cards we have to buy the vol books from all these different sellers!

ETA: I think it's already out in Japan, considering the time difference, and I just checked Amazon.jp and animate, and Vol 1 & 2 are currently all sold out and out of stock! ohmy.gif

ETA 2: Yeah, it changed to "stocked" today (June 22, 2011.) biggrin.gif

What exactly makes these unabridged versions special and different from the regular manga?

Hi, im_juice_lee, welcome to our board! ^^
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).

Here are some photos I found on Japanese blogs:





More pics from this blog:
It is bigger than regular volume books. This one is from Bunkyodo bookstore, and comes with bonus FMA postcards and a bookmark you can get if you buy from Bunkyodo.


The blog entry says it comes with 2 detachable covers, the first one is this full size color poster.


Then on top of that, this clear cover with logo & vol. title goes on


Blog says the first page of each volume is a new color drawing by Arakawa-sensei, done especially for the unabridged version.
Vol. 1 is Ed full-body view drawing, Vol. 2 is Al full-body view drawing.

Inside the main cover, there are rough sketches of characters before she decided on final character design, with newly added comments by Arakawa. Her comment on one Ed sketch says that it took her more time to decide on the design of his Automail than deciding on the design of Ed's face.

Between chapters there are rough drawings of characters in "negative (reversed Black and White)." Vol. 1 has Gluttony, then Roy & Riza, Vol. 2 has Scar, Lust, Maria & Blosch, Barry, then Slicer.

4-koma omake comics that were included in regular volume books are not included in unabridged version of volumes.


Btw, Roy and Riza will be on the cover of Vol. 3 & 4. (Just as I expected happy.gif)



<Added the translated comments from the blog, as this blog author is known to be trustable with FMA facts. ^^ ~ Tombow>

A friend of mine posted the Roy & Riza covers on Live Journal (they look awesome)





Sadly with my financial situation I am not sure if I will be able to collect them all (I was kind of hoping it would be 2 volumes in 1). But I guess I will buy what I can.

I wonder who will be on Vol 5, Winry maybe?

Thank you, Kirara! biggrin.gif Ohhh, I love these covers! wub.gif And, that means, we'll probably get full body size new drawings of Roy, and Riza for each edition in these volumes!? That would be awesome!

As for the cover of Vol 5? Hard to guess... we'll have 18 covers in total, and 4 are already filled (Ed, Al, Roy, & Riza) I'd like to see Winry, Olivier, Ling, Hohenheim, Bradley, Kimblee..... hard to decide. xd

Thanks for posting the covers, Kirara, they look awesome! biggrin.gif

Also, thank you, Tombow for the translations! ^^

I'd love to see those extra drawings, sketches, and the character drawings between the chapters! Hopefully someone will scan them. ^^

And I remember Amber1003 mentioning a while ago that volumes 3 and 4 whould have Roy and Riza and I couldn't wait to see them ever since. And as expected, they look absolutely awesome! I especially love the way Roy is drawn in that picture! Thank you for sharing those, Kirara! hug.gif

Knowing Arakawa, Armstrong will definitely be on one of the covers too LOL XD
