The Italian version has two extra editions:

Fullmetal Alchemist Gold Edition:


It has a bigger format than a normal volume


Fullmetal Alchemist Gold Deluxe Edition:
http://www.paninicomics.it/web/guest/produ...?viewItem=30582

It's bigger and with an extra cover


Both the editions are for collectors so they are quite expensive tongue.gif


And we have volumes 1-22 available (of the normal edition)

I'm surely not the only one who thinks that all the european and asian designs looks sooo much better than Viz's, right? Viz's cover design feels a bit over the top and cartoonish, while these are more clean and subtle.

I do prefer the traditional black background designs over the grayish tones used by Viz.

Also, one thing I like about at least the Korean and Japanese versions (not sure if others do this as well) is the way they vary the font color of the title in every volume. Volume 1 is red, vol. 2 is green, etc.

They do that with the Swedish versions too biggrin.gif It's a nice touch, and sometimes the colour they choose goes so much better with the cover art than the big, bright red and grey lettering that Viz uses.

(Actually, the red/grey "FMA logo font" looks pretty good on the Italian Gold Edition above. Probably because it's smaller and because of the black background.)

Yup, I can confirm that Finnish editions have this too biggrin.gif It truly is a nice addition.
And I never was a fan of Viz's use of grey in their volumes, either. The black colour just suits well with the artwork.

And just checking the previous page, wow. France has even omakes as their own little editions? I sure hope these would get released in other countries, too, I would love to have them in my collection! happy.gif

Okay so I'm in Japan and on a computer that won't let me start a new topic. I figured this was the next best place, but I saw an ad in a subway car for the 26th volume. It had the cover and everything, but not who was on the spine, nor how many chapters was in it. I will describe the cover to you. It was the 5 sacrifices standing in a circle on what looked like prides shadows. It was a really amazing cover and I loved it. I only have a short amount of time to post this, but I thought you'd all love to know smile.gif

Yeah, we have that cover in here.

Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

I'm french but I think I can't add my contribution since DinstantBlue and Sannoms' . I think people from France can be happy because Kurokawa is great (although Gunnm's french editor sucks but this is not the right subject).
The french editor also published the two artbooks (as said), the novels but doesn't want to publish the perfect guidebooks. It will publish soon Hero Tales (Juushin enbu).
BTW I'd like to discuss about english (UK and USA) version's of FMA, I hope this doesn't matter or harm the topic, because as someone who doesn't live in Japan or USA I'd like to know how it is for you ^^
Is VIZ only an american editor or is it the editor for people in UK ? Is it true that they don't release omakes or Gaidens ?

FMA was licensed in Russia by Comix-Art not so long ago, and they published the first volume in January!
Here is the cover

I'm going to buy it in a day or two, and can write a kind of review if anyone's interested happy.gif

I got my grabby hands on the first volume today (payed 7$), so here is the promised review. Never done that before, actually XD

There are several manga publishers in Russia, Comix-Art being the largest one with a variety of popular titles such as Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Dragonball, X/1999, Claymore, Death Note, Shaman King, Berserk, Love Hina and more. C-A's releases are always of very nice quality, so I'm really glad they are the ones to publish FMA.
Now, getting to the point - that is, the book itself. It's slightly bigger than the Japanese volume (I guess almost all C-A's books are like that), and the colours are somewhat deeper too. I also like the fact that they used the "metal" design of the first Japanese title hieroglyph (with steely colour and screw heads) for the word "Стальной" (fullmetal).

The book has a dust-cover, which isn't a common practice for this publisher - for example, Naruto, Bleach, Claymore, Dragonball, Death Note and some others are simple paperback, with mangaka's comments printed on the inner side of the cover (or not printed at all, especially in the earlier releases). FMA, on the other hand, is lucky to get one with Arakawa's commentary and volume synopsis on the flaps. Inner covers are also translated, images on the spines (Ed's portrait and Cornello) are present as well.

Print quality is pretty decent, images are sharp and clean, black areas are black, white are white and so on. The volume doesn't feature any colour pages, just as the original Japanese edition didn't - they are black-and-white. The binding is solid, so the book isn't going to fall into separate pages anytime soon.

Bonus pages at the end of the volume are translated as well, and there is also a preview of the next volume.

As for translation, I must say that apart from a couple of minor mistakes (in SFX translation mostly) they did a great job here, managing to correctly convey Al's politeness, Ed's rather brash attitude, and speech peculiarities of other characters, and to keep the humour. There are no Japanese honorifics (which makes sense, as they are not in Japan), and C-A also stayed true to their policy of not redrawing sound effects, but mainly putting small captions beside them (as can be seen on the third and fifth photo). I personally don't like this method that much, because sometimes the frames can become too cluttered. But that's just my opinion =) Besides, they do redraw some of the smaller sounds, such as laughter or sighs.
One thing that bugs me as a translator is the fact, that the names of Homunculi are translated and not transcribed. Lust is "Похоть" (meaning "lust" as an actual sin) and Gluttony is "Обжорство" (meaning "gluttony" as a sin too). But it's actually a pretty tricky linguistic question, so I'd better keep my complaints to myself ^^ Though I do wonder how they are going to play out the "GreedLing" joke that way. Well, we'll wait and see.
All in all, it's a very enjoyable high-quality release, a definite "must have" for every Russian FMA fan. I'm really glad that I bought this book and I'm looking forward to getting next volumes!

If you have any questions about Russian edition of FMA (or just any questions at all), I'll be more than happy to answer *v*
