Manga news site, Kuriousity, recently spotted a listing for a Fullmetal Alchemist manga box set to be published by Viz this year on Amazon.ca. The set will include volumes 1-27 of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga, as well as extras such as the Fullmetal Alchemist novel — The Ties That Bind — and a two-sided colour poster.

 

Amazon.ca have the box set release dated for November 1st, 2011, and list the original price as CDN $219.99. However, they’ve further discounted that price down to CDN $137.93. Viz have yet to officially announce the box set’s release.

     I would buy, I only have two volumes of FMA and this seems like a swift way to catch up. However if it releases in the fall I will have to push it off to a 2012 pick up.

      At the amazon discount, it comes out to only $5.10 American per volume.  Considering how it’s also
      a. New
      b. Comes in that neat box
      c. Comes with extras
      I’d say go for it.

    Oh, I remember finding this like last week. I didn’t know it was newsworthy or I’d have emailed. But the normal amazon.com website has the same listing. It has the price at 219.99 USD, too. Same on the barnes and nobles website.

     Ahh this is really nice i never read the fma manga :< proll1 1 random vol. but i might pick this up instead of reading online i wanna start a collection ^_^

    Oh man. I’m totally buying this. FMA manga is few of my favorite series around, and I usually don’t buy manga due to them being expensive as hell. This boxset changes things.

  • Whoomp

    I only need the final 3 volumes to complete my collection but reading the comments here it seems like this is a welcome addition (as it should be). Would be nice if there was more of these but so far only the top sellers; Dragonball, Bleach, Naruto and Deathnote, have gotten boxsets so I’m not rasing my hopes.

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      So you need only 3 more volumes but you’re going to buy the whole box set? And what other series do you wish would come in a box set?

      • Whoomp

        Yeah of course… *rolleyes* I mean’t it’s an welcome addition for people who haven’t been buying it as it came out. And I would like to see pretty much all their older finished titles (that isn’t already getting the 3-in-1 treatment) in boxes like these.

    My wallet. It cries out in pain.

    Definitely interested. I read the manga online at the same time as I was watching FMA:B, so I’ve been eager for a chance to actually buy it. At a price this low, it’s a no-brainer for me.

    Finally!! I have waited for this for so long, definitely going on the wishlist.

    Of course. As soon as I start collecting a series, the box set comes out. >:C

    I’m gonna wait 10 years for the One Piece box set which will come with a lifesized Going Merry to carry it.

  • Natabuu

    What’s the website for amazon.ca?

    • conchobhar

      Dude! The computer claims I have mail!

  • Hagareno

    I’m buying this….my wallet will cry, but by God I will own all of the best manga of all time. I’ll have to figure out what to do with the ones I already own
