Fullmetal Alchemist Manga  
Finally caught up with the scannalated manga (after screaming and messageing my friend whose never seen/read it with vague statments that she asks about and I don't answer). I was wondering: Does anyone know vaguely when the manga will end?

Does anyone know when chapter 39 will come out? I'm killing myself right now... **Rolls on ground**

Arakawa said she had seven years to go in an interview some time ago. I'm not clear if she meant 7 years total or another 7 years to go.(anybody can inform me?) Either way, with one chapter a month, we still have a crazy long way to go.

Shonen Monthy Gangan, as the name states, is a monthly Jump magazine and is released at the 12th of every month (unless otherwise stated). Each manga volume(s) release by Gangan is the 22nd of every month (depending on the series some release thier volumes every 2-4 months). Current volume count is 8 and I *think* volume 9 is coming out this month, need clarification on this one. o.o

Chapter 39 will be published in VOL 10 of this year's Gangan magazine September 11th so says chapter 38. (Which eerieely coincides with episode 48 of the anime that has a very not so-comforting title >_>)

And yeah, the manga will go on longer simply because manga series don't have a preset timeframe. (or they do but its not aas strict as say the anime which HAS to finish up with amount of episodes they ssaid they'd do) 7yrs someone said.

I thought it came out in July? o.o;

July because I was at Otakon and had my copy a week or two prior to the event. Anyways, I remember getting 7 when it just got out in March, so it's about 4 months inbetween volumes if I'm thinking correctly.

Jump? But all Jump series' publisher is Shueisha while Hagaren is being published by Square-Enix. ._.

I usually refer to 'Jumps' as the magazines and such that publish manga chapters weekly/monthly. Sorry for confusing you ^^;

Eheh, no biggie. ^_^ I usually just call them phonebook magazines. =D

Yeah, the manga will take "7 years to finish" so either way, there's atleast another 5 years of chapters. So, they'll be maybe another 7 volumes or so, which is long for a monthly series, I think.

39 is out Sept. 11th. >_>;;

So's episode 48. Geez, a double header. Not looking forward to either one bit >_>;

But then, Hagaren isn't the usual monthly series. XD
