Tombow
Thank you, Michiyo- for finding those! biggrin.gif I like it that Riza's cover has other Roy gang members also! That means, we may see other "group" drawings on upcoming covers, like homunclus gang, Olivier's gang, etc. ^^
Vol. 3 & 4 are coming out in less than a week, and I'm looking forward to seeing inside drawings also! biggrin.gif
Michiyo-
A new TVCM is up on Gangan's website.
Miki Shinichiro and Orikasa Fumiko promote Vol. 3 & 4. There seems to be a funny conversation between Roy and Riza, because I hear something like "June is rainy, rain means useless..." laugh.gif

...In the vid, Roy (Miki Shinichiro) asks why his cover is used for vol 3 [that's coming out in July], after Ed (his cover was used for vol. 1) & Al (he was on vol. 2), and Riza (Orikasa Fumiko) answers that because "[vol. 1 & vol. 2 came out in June, and] June in Japan is a rainy season, and certain someone is useless in rain..." and Roy (Miki Shinichiro) cut her off by saying "No need to go further, I got it." That's the funny part. biggrin.gif ~ Tombow

Here are a few screenshots from the CM:


Kirara
Eeee I love how the Roy-Tachi are on Riza's cover <3
Tombow
^ Thank you Michiyo- for finding that vid! biggrin.gif
I added the explanation of "funny" part in the vid on the post. ^^
Kirara
LOL but doesn't Roy mean volume 3, he was after Al too
Tombow
^ Gahaha, you're right, Kirara, after listening to it carefully, I hear that Roy says Elric brothers. tongue.gif
*goes to correct* Thank you so much for catching it! biggrin.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
Thank you for the images and news, Michiyo-! And thank you Tombow for explaining what's being said in the CM. biggrin.gif

I really love how all of the Mustang's team have been included on Hawkeye's cover. That makes it all the more awesome. biggrin.gif

Love Riza's cover! I guess that means when it's Olivier's turn on the cover we'll probably get a group pic too!

If Winry is indeed Vol 5 I think we'll probably get Den, Pinako, and possibly Panina (sp?) on the back as well.
Kirara
Does anyone know a place to order Vols. 3 & 4 that doesn't charge a crazy amount for shipping. I waited too long to order from Yes Asia (waiting for Chronicles and now I don't think they will get it in at all) and now it both issues are out of stock.


Amazon.co.jp still has both issues but they are charging $40 for shipping. sad.gif


And so this doesn't happen again I already ordered Vol. 5


edit: Nevermind I found a place smile.gif
Michiyo-
The cover of Vol. 5 is out! biggrin.gif



I expected Winry, but Izumi looks great! ^^
dreamfield
Thanks for the image, Michiyo-!
Izumi looks so handsome that I almost can't resist to order one for collection TAT
Looking forward to winry's coming out ~
A Pierrot's Aria
Thank you, Michiyo-! Izumi looks awesome on that cover. I love the green colour scheme, too! laugh.gif

Mind sharing where you found them? wink.gif
Kirara
CD Japan, it's not as cheap as Yes Asia but since it has more shipping options it is less expensive than Amazon.co.jp.

Wow, I, too didn't expect Izumi, but glad to see that she got the cover! I wonder if any others share the cover with her....

Tombow
Thank you, Michiyo-, thank you, hilary!

Added info and translations of Arakawa-sensei's comments on Michiyo-'s posts above. smile.gif

A Pierrot's Aria
Thank you for the images hilary and Michiyo-! And thank you for the translations, Tombow! hug.gif

Those early design sketches are awesome! It's quite strange to think that Roy could have been a smoker (if she stuck with that idea, of course!) xP And I quite like Roy's hair in the top sketch on his early design page.
Michiyo-
Thanks for the translations, Tombow! biggrin.gif

I like the early design sketches, Roy looks great with longer hair! The Roy-tachi cats are really cute and Riza looks awesome on that page. ^^
Heza
Thanks so much hilary and Michiyo for the scans and Tombow for the translations! I can't see how I could live not knowing anything about all these wonderful books!

Holy cow, do I want these volumes. As a designer and with my love for preliminary character design sketches this is just torture! I LOVE the clear slipcovers (never realized these volumes had those) so you get all that information printed nicely, but you still have the art without all the type. The little things Arakawa mentions with her character sketches are some of my most favorite comments. It's amazing to see how the characters originally came to be and how much time and development was put into them before the actual publication was started. It's funny she considered making Roy a smoker, since Havoc was made a smoker just because of their fight with Lust. It's fun putting all these little details together. XD
Kirara
Oh wow everything is gorgeous. Thanks for the scans and translation.

The sketch of the Roy and co as cats is my favorite. So cute!
Michiyo-
Here's the HQ cover of Vol. 5 from Amazon:

Tombow
Thank you, Michiyo-! biggrin.gif

I see that staring from Vol 5, we'll probably see 1 vol per month?

michiyo, thank for the cover izumi looks great
i guess the next cover , woul be Ling?
A Pierrot's Aria
Thank you so much for sharing the HQ pic, Michiyo-!

I love it. Izumi looks fantastic; I think her hair looks awesome! xP
Michiyo-
Here's the full cover of Vol. 5:

Tombow
Thank you, Michiyo-! biggrin.gif

I was hoping Sig and Mason would join on the side, but I guess not. ^^

I hope they have Izumi's early designs. smile.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
That looks fantastic. Thank you Michiyo-! hug.gif

Although, I agree with Tombow in that it's a shame that Sig and Mason aren't on the full cover! ohmy.gif
Michiyo-
I was also hoping for Sig and Mason on the back cover, but maybe we'll see them in the sketches page.
I can't wait to see Izumi's early design! ^^


ETA: Sept. 1

The cover of Vol. 6 is out: happy.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
That cover looks gorgeous! I can't wait to see the full version!

Thank you for sharing, Michiyo-! hug.gif
Kirara
Kind of disappointed Winry didn't get a cover yet, although I am sure she still will.

And well Lust never got a spine so it's cool she got a cover this time. Thanks for sharing!
LooneyLolita
I told myself I chould buy all the unabridged, WHEN! Winry get's a cover. (Since she's my fav character)
Looks like I'll be either be waiting or not getting it D:

But Lust do look awesome on that Cover :3
Tombow
Thank you, Michiyo-! biggrin.gif

This Lust's face looks little different from usual (Eyes are too big, too round, and too close to each other? And, cheeks look too puffed up, and got too small jaws, and ears and lips are too round? unsure.gif She looks like Lust's younger sister who might be able to play Lara Croft in Tomb Raider tongue.gif ), but I like her, and glad Lust got the cover! biggrin.gif
I hope we'll get Gluttony/possibly some other homuncli on the side. ^^

This is the Lust I'm familiar with tongue.gif (Usually her lips, especially the upper lip is paper thin and almost non-existent, and I thought she had skinny & rather pointy years. xp)
Heza
Well I say heck yes! First thing I thought of was that Lust didn't get a spine, too, so this was nice. I love all that purple. And she does look a little different, but sheez it's been a looooong time since Arakawa drew her last I'm guessing, since she was killed in the manga at the end of 2004. So almost 7 years now? biggrin.gif I'm remembering a few pics where all the homunculi were together, but nothing that really focused on her.
xUltimate_Shieldx
Wow, I have to say I'm surprised that Lust got a cover, and so early none-the-less! But I love how Hiromu Arakawa drew her here happy.gif She looks good on the cover happy.gif
Tombow
This is the gift box from animate that you can get if you buy vol. 1 ~ vol 6 from animate. Volumes 1 ~ 6 will go into this box.

Cute Ed. biggrin.gif

I assume there will be 2 more animate gift boxes (vol 7 ~ vol 12, vol 13 ~ vol 18). No announcement on who will be on these boxes.
A Pierrot's Aria
That's such an awesome picture of Ed! biggrin.gif Thank you for the news, Tombow!
Michiyo-
The full cover of Vol. 6 is out, and it looks very cool: happy.gif


Also, here's the Animate box pic in a larger size:

Vol. 7 comes out on Oct. 22.
rosieechan
I LOVE THESE COVERS! :'D

The Lust one looks fantastic, and I'm glad she got her own cover (she had limited space in the actual manga! D:).

I'm surprised Winry hasn't gotten one yet...but I wouldn't like for her to come too soon, either. :3 I can't wait till all of the covers are out! ^.^
A Pierrot's Aria
Thank you for the full pics, Michiyo-! They look fantastic! I like how she added Greed onto the full volume 6 cover! happy.gif
Michiyo-
The newest volume cover is out, and this time it's May:


It looks great! biggrin.gif
Tombow
^ Thank you, Michiyo-! happy.gif

Oh my, May got the cover!!! Awesome!
I'm bit surprised that May got the cover instead of Lin, but this is a nice surprise, and I like it! biggrin.gif
Michiyo-
Here's the HQ cover of Vol. 7:


ETA: And the full cover:


Vol. 8 will be out on Nov. 22.
A Pierrot's Aria
Thank you so much for posting the images, Michiyo-! hug.gif

The cover is awesome --May looks lovely (and determined)! I'm glad she got her own cover! biggrin.gif
Kirara
Oh wow the May cover is awesome. It's definitely my favorite along with the Riza one. smile.gif

Just ordered Vol 8 today (and bah it was expensive due to exchange rate)

I am still waiting for Winry...but I guess it makes sense to have Scar after May. smile.gif

Only 10 more characters left!

Same here. Can't help but wonder what volume she'll be the cover for.
