FMA Novel  
I went to the Chinese bookstore in my area today and found, lo and behold, the FMA novel volume 1 translated into Chinese. Is anyone else aware of this novel series' existence, and has anyone read it? If so, is it any good? I didn't have the cash to buy it today but really wanted to. However, if it's no good, I won't read it.

I believe that the novel is Ep. 11-12 with the false Elric brothers. Can't comment on how good it is, I took German and Spanish as my foreign languages.

As far as I know, the novel is just the anime episodes with the fake Elric brothers (Russel and Fletcher Tringham), in written form and a handful of scenes that didn't make it to the anime.

Ack, too late.

I can't read kanji...The novel is sold at almost every bookstore I visit. Taunting me....

Maybe you'll have better luck with the Chinese?

I can read Chinese quite fluently, given I come from Taiwan.

YAY! Tell me how the novel is okay? ^_^

That is, if I decide to buy it. From what I've seen here on the comments I'm not sure it's worth it? XD

They look really good....The plot line they're talking about from the anime wasn't that bad actually. It was interesting.

There are three or four novels out in Japanese... I've been wanting to get them, but they're never in the NYC Japanese book stores. :-/

Do you want me to get the isbn #s so you can ask the bookstores for them?

Hm. Intresting. Did this book just come out in Chinese? *very interested*
Aimeefiredawn on August 15th, 2004 09:22 pm (UTC)
Yup. My bookstore gets manga etc. weeks before they're released, so it might not even be out yet.

Ah; I'll be stalking my bookstore then from time to time then. =)
