Don't know if this is old news (sorry, I don't know much about English FMA hype.. o_O), but VIZ has their online viewer for the licensed English FMA manga up. Just a few pages, but you do get a feel of how they're translating it.

Yes it is out.

I live in Canada, but I saw it last Saturday or so ago at my local Anime Store.

And I didn't buy it.

Why didn't I?

I already have most of the Japanese versions. Thus I prefer the Japanese ones compared to the English because Edward swears (I like swearing happy.gif).

The only reason I would buy it in English is because I can't read most Japanese, thus I'm lazy to figure out the words, then translate them into English. But hey, I'm lazy. happy.gif

i'd rather settle for the chinese versions and they were available in Toronto. kinda hard to find vol. 1-8 again, tho.

EDIT: My grammar sucked so I edited this lol

The two languages Chinese and Japanese are quite similar so I guess the Chinese ones are better for me ^^
Or of course, fan-translated English ones.

it's acully pretty much the same as the fan one @_@ aka...i just got it today.

i heard from some people that someone workin on it is a FMA fan, so teh chances of them messin up are less.

From what I hear, I wouldn't buy the english one... One, because its expensive, two because I'm more comfortable reading the chinese

Actually, I think Viz did a good job translating FMA. It's just like the one here on fm-a.com. ^^

What do you mean by that?
miss_neko
i think Viz did a pretty goob job. Though i think they should have put the rating to OT so then they won't have to edit out some of the cursing. some of you suggested the chinese one but you know.. not everyone is chinese or knows how to read chinese x.x

I just bought the Viz comic book. Its got the first four manga in one volume. It reads from right to left to keep it a little original at least. 'Tis a shiney cover....love it. The next one is out in July (arg, like the movie)

The first manga for FMA just came out in America.
I'm going to buy it soon.
CosmicMoon
I bought it, but I still don't like the english sound effects, it makes it look funny. -.- I guess that's the only problem I have with it lol.
dragonmaster2476

I think Viz did a nice job from what I could see. smile.gif Like reading the scanlations again. (Maybe I should take a shot at reading the manga again from where I left off...)

@dragonmaster2476: Maybe you should take a look in the General Manga section of the forum. I'm sure you'll be able to find your answer there.
