Who wuoldn't want a full set of FMA Manga. I'm currently in the process of writing a panel discussion purely about Ed's arm and it's relevance to modern steampunk!

This is my absolute FAVORITE anime, so being able to read it would be fan-freaking-tastic. I already have Fruit's Basket (the only other manga I really *love* enough to own), and having this would just be... holllly crap. :D

Pleaaaase, Santa?!

I loved this manga and was glad the second anime followed the plot, as it is way superior to the original anime plot where they made up the second 2/3rds themselves.

I am a huge Fullmetal Alchemist fan-I love the manga and both animes (especially the newest one, Brotherhood, as its a mostly faithful adaptation of the manga, albeit with a few tweaks here and there). I really, really, REALLY want this-and so would my wife, who's a big enough fan of FMA that she's crocheted at least a dozen plushie versions of some of the characters, complete with embroidered faces (Ed, Al, Roy, Riza, Ling, Van Hohenheim, Izumi and all seven of the manga Homunculi, in case anyone's wondering-she plans on doing other anime/manga characters and Doctor Who characters in the future). We've had to check the manga out of the library, being poor retail drones struggling to get through college and raise a five-year old son at the same time, so winning all 27 volumes would be incredibly wonderful-especially as I've filled something out for these contests plenty of times before and the universe(the Truth?) hates me and gives all the prizes to other people (who are equally deserving, of course, and likely all very nice and all-but they're not me...) Anyway, glad to see some FMA-love from Tor.com anyways, especially on Oct.3rd (a significant date in the FMA-verse, for Tor.com goers who aren't familiar with the manga). If I don't get the manga collection, well, here's hoping whoever does enjoys the gift greatly, especially if you're new to manga and are curious about the series-it's one of the best you'll find, and deserves a re-read/re-watch on this here website some time...

I found the film to be much more steampunk that the anime(s). I'd be interested to see if the manga is any more steampunk than the shows, though. Definitely been on my to-read list for a while now!

^ like hubby said, do want.

I am such a huge FMA fan that I actually did my (required) two-year project at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts on how translations of the animé that made it to the U. S. were heavily Americanized. Sooooo much research, but it was worth it to be able to spend a day telling the judges (who were much older than me) how awesome animé that comes straight from Japan is and how interesting it is as an art form. I placed first for my backboard and paper, but third for my presentation because stage fright caused me to have some hilarious goofs. But every one of the judges came back afterward and told me that they never knew all that stuff about animé. This was before Studio Ghibli's stuff was imported, so that was a big deal. Best experience ever.

So, FMA holds a happy place in my heart.

This series probably amounts to one of the best anime/manga in the last ten years, not just in the steampunk genre. Tight storylines, great animation, and a plethora of references to some wonderful historians, scientists, and brilliant minds: what's not to love? Put your hot little hands on a copy if you have a chance, and you won't be disappointed. Even animation-shy friends have become fans on recommendations for FMA, especially since the humour and themes are just as enjoyable for children as they are for adults. It's well worth the time and investment! In that vein, I hope to be in consideration for winning the series. I have only been fortunate enough to beg, borrow, and rent (some time ago).
