FMA Novels and artbook licensed  
Guess what I found while skimming through this month’s Newtype USA…

“VIZ recently announced that it has licensed Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist manga. The first volume arrives in stores on May 3, but that’s not all. VIZ has also licensed the Fullmetal Alchemist novelizations, the first of which lands on shelves in the US this October, as well as a full-color collection called The Art of Fullmetal Alchemist, coming in November.

*spaz* <33

This has been posted multiple times, and is actually really really old news (I think it was first announced, eh...January?)

I don't really mind it being posted now though. For the people who don't know yet and all.

Well, that's actually a lie.

The manga was announced in January, the novels were announced sometime in late March, and I'm not sure if the artbook has been announced at all yet, but I vaguely remember hearing about that too.

So yeah.

Now all they need to do is translate the drama CDs. Somehow.

No, I'm in Hughes' pants.

Because apparently he plays a big part in some of the drama CDs.

Considering he's on the cover of one, and all.

And the drama CDs come with a manga story if I remember right...


This is the one I'm referring to. XD
