Just got my hands on the Fullmetal Alchemist Profiles book (aka Fullmetal Alchemist Perfect Guide) and so far it looks lovely. All the omake appear to be there (as showing seen in the omake thread) along with full color pages on the front for the poll and a travelogue map showing the places the Elrics have been from volume 1-7 (except for Lior) There is also a bonus manga at the end, "the Blind Alchemist."

So pick it up! It's 14.99 and it's a nice addition for your collection.

Out already? No way I can pass this up. Thanks for the info; I thought we still had a few weeks before the English debut. Nice when they get things out the door early.

The store where I work, Borders, had copies out already. Since there really is no hold on manga to be released on the set street date it works out sometimes. I was really worried about this one too. I had started to see multiple dates for "FMA Profile" books popping up.

On Viz's site, it said mid-June, but on another site it said Novemeber. Regardless, it's nice to know it exists. I'll track it down when I can find the time.

It does say mid-June at alot of places. The thing is that I don't think Viz has black listing power against releases prior to street date that other companies do. FMA and other manga will sometimes come out one to two early whereas novel series like Harry Potter will be so insured to have a simultaneuos street release date as they will KILL YOU if you sell it early. Then again company size also factors in this. Viz and Tokyopop are often early for their release in big stores like Borders whereas manga series published by ADVfilms or Dark Horse seem to take FOREVER to come to the shelves, sometimes coming to the little guys prior to the big guys. This is my experience however and may change based on your situations.

Awesome! I always wondered what the 'Blind Alchemist' gaiden was from... but I haven't bought any manga in way too long. With two FMA volumes and the Perfect Guide, it seems that I must go this weekend.

There's a quiz in there... and I got Winry. I forced my friends to take it, and most people didn't really like the results. Especially the people who got Al because they thought he was a scary robot.

Every time you call Al a robot, Bradley kills a Chimera. Please...think of the loyal subordinates.

I need to rant here. I've checked just about every bookstore within my area, and none of them have Vol. 8 or the Profiles book. Now, not having Vol. 8 is understandable, as it came out much faster than everyone thought it would, but Profiles came out a while back, and by now it's definitely passed it previously projected welcoming gate. So my question is "What gives?" Need I scour Amazon.com? I probably will, but I shouldn't have to.

Ranting done.
