Just as the title and description says, feel free to discuss anything to do with the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series. This discussion thread is ONLY for the manga. Do not discuss the 2 anime series or the 2 anime films.

You can also ask questions, talk about things regarding the manga.

Happy posting!

So, any fans still around? Hopefully I'm not the only one still enjoying the manga!

I have finally finished rereading the whole manga today. I have all 27 volumes and I have enjoyed revisiting this awesome manga series! Has anyone else revisited this great manga recently as well?

I still enjoy it plenty. In fact. i consider it to be the prefect manga in every way possible and also my favorite manga of all time.

i've re-started my annual read of the manga in september, but im only up to volume 21 because of my studies, and re-reading it is just plenty of fun.

If someone ever asked me what manga i would recommend above all else, it would deffinitly be this one.

Cool Yeah, due to real life stuff, it can be hard to read manga back to back. It's better to do a few chapters a day, depending on how much time you have. I've made it up to when Ed and Al are in Briggs, and I'm going to keep reading till the end.

Just knowing that this thread exists makes me happy. Yes, I'm still a fan, and FMA is still my favorite. I've read the whole series, and I'm now reading the light novels.

I've yet to find and read the light novels. :/ At least I still have the manga and both anime series and both anime films to enjoy.

I want to re-read the manga and re-watch both of the anime series again at some point, but work, games, and keeping up with new stuff means this is on the back burner for now. FMA was my major anime obsession in my high school days the way that Pandora Hearts and later Attack on Titan became my college days obsessions.

It's kind of hard for me to accept how much time has passed since it ended; it doesn't feel like it's been that long at all.

Yeah, it seems like it's been way longer since it ended, but not really. I miss the series, and hope that the live action film will do well. I hope it will be as good as the Rurouni Kenshin live action films. I am skeptical because I've seen some other anime live action adaptions that weren't very good, and I'm worried that the director will go the wrong direction and ruin the film. I hope he makes good decisions and won't try to put the whole manga into one movie. If he splits it up into a few films and takes the most major more important parts and condenses it into an 1hr 30min to 2 hrs or whatever, that's fine. Even if some things must be tweaked a bit like how they did in the Rurouni Kenshin live action films, that's fine, as long as it's done right.

Anyway, enough rambling from me.

Anyone having fun with the manga yet? I've enjoyed rereading it again myself.

I have been a fan since the 2003 anime came out, so you could say it has been my favourite manga of all time for 14 years now! I haven't done any reread the past couple years since I moved and I can't remember where my full set manga was hidden away lol. I actually own TWO sets of FMA manga because I love it so much and it's the only series which I own two sets of. One set is the regular official translated version, and the other set is the Japanese special collector's edition they released after the anime finished. Unfortunately my Japanese is not up to par enough for me to read the Japanese edition

Hiromu Arakawa definitely earned my respect for her quality art and storytelling. You had no idea how surprised I was about how she never took a single break and even gave birth to a baby while she was drawing FMA! Amazingly hardworking woman, no wonder she was able to write such a masterpiece.

Man, now I feel like I must find them so that I can reread them! I'm happy to hear that people haven't forgotten it. I have also rewatched the brotherhood series when CR got it months ago. I'm not looking forward to the live action though...

FMA is such a beloved classic due to Arakawa's sheer brilliance as a master storyteller. The series IMO is one of the greatest shonen action-adventure series of all time aside from Eiichiro Oda's One Piece. Solid well-established character development, fantastic plot from start to finish and amazing world-building make up the formula for a wondrous and satisfying tale about the bonds of brotherhood
