Fullmetal Alchemist Gets a Fullmetal Edition this May
VIZ Media is delivering the best-selling manga series Fullmetal: Alchemist in a fully remastered collector’s edition with the release of Fullmetal: Alchemist: Fullmetal Edition on May 8th.
Fullmetal: Alchemist: Fullmetal Edition is a hardcover, deluxe collector’s edition with brand-new cover art, new color inserts and color versions of select pages previously printed in black and white, and behind-the-scenes character sketches from series creator Hiromu Arakawa. Volume 1 (which contains one and a half of the original graphic novels) will be released exclusively in print with an MSRP of $19.99 U.S. / $26.99 CAN and is rated ‘T’ for Teens.

In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Their journey to restore their bodies through the power of the Philosopher’s Stone begins here. Fully remastered with an updated translation and completely fresh lettering, the Fullmetal Edition is presented with color pages on large-trim archival-quality paper.
