Okies......  
Ummm....
Don't suppose I could get advice on this...?
Where is a good place to order the FMA manga tankubons?
Preferebly places with english on them (the website).... I'm afraid I cannot read Japanese.

There's no place to buy the manga in English.
However, SasugaBooks sells them in Japanese.

Also, you can rely on scanlations, like the ones from Toriyama World for reading reference; I'm sure that FMA translations will start popping up sooner or later.

Anyways, even if you don't know Japanese, tankubons are a great way to learn. I'm a first year Japanese student in college, and I memorized all of my hiragana (and some of my katakana) by reading Pretear, TB, and X tankubons.

Either way, good luck! <3

Thankee.
I've been able to find some at www.animaxis.com actually, but I don't know how reliable they are.

As for Sasuga, I've had problems when paying them with Paypal; usually the order recipt will not send, and I have to re-submit my order.

That's really it, though. They sometimes take awhile for shipping, depending on if the stuff you want is in stock or not, but they're really cheap.

Thankees. That didn't work before for some reason. (Title or author.)
Must've misspelled...

Nah, it's fine. <3

I can never remember to type everything before I hit post...
Actually, I'm not too adamant about finding it because of Toriyama's World. But I also understand that they can send you text trranslations if you request it and have the tankubons. I read at somepoint that they had text for through volume 04...
So that was what I was dependent on.
Thank you!

Hey, where in Animaxis did you find the FMA tankubons? *is stupid and can't find it*

Otherwise, I'm probably going to buy myself the entire set after Christmas and I'd be glad to attempt to translate for you. <3
