FMA manga......( and some fanart )  
Hmmm - I ordered the first 4 volumes of the FMA manga on Amazon the other week, and they came this morning.

I am thoroughly impressed! The manga is actually better than the anime......so far.

One thing though - volumes 2-4 are all first editions, but the fourth one doesn't have a shiny cover. O_o Oddity. The third one also came with a Lust trading card - which I wont open. XD Apparently the card was limited to 25,000 copies....

Do any of the other volumes have trading cards with them? And why isn't volume 4 shiny?

On another note, I forgot to post a link to this piece of fanart I did - GreedxEnvy. XD

It's not 'first edition' or anything. The first three have shiny covers then the rest are like four. Don't know why really.

And yes, the manga is much better than the anime. Just wait 'til volume 8 and the plots become two completely different stories.

I got the trading card with my copy of vol. 3 too. At the moment, it's still in the manga, as I refuse to open it. As for the "shiny" issue, I doubt that it has anything to do with the first three being a first issue or not *shrug*

And I agree - the manga is so much better ^___^

Mine are exactly the same... and I bought them from the store. I don't really know. I did open the one with the card, though not the card itself.

Yeah - exactly. Thats what I did. XD

I wonder if the card is shiny? I'm guessing the rest of the volumes are not gonna be shiny though....... T____T

It's just the first three. I already have up to volume 7 (because I ask Howie to let me know when one comes in...I'm not obsessed, I promise!)

I think they just decided to stop making them shiny after 3. I really don't know why. *shrug*
