For any FMA fan, this box set makes the most sense economically. Of course, it's annoying that most fans would likely have purchased a few books from the series already before finding the box set and so will have repeats of volumes. I had the first nine volumes already and now I want to sell them, which might be hard to do.

The poster is rather small and not particularly impressive. The extra book is designed for a young reading audience but is still nice for a fan to read. I have been storing the box upright and the velcros holding the side flap closed have stopped sticking (though it's not like the books will fall out even without the velcro).

I don't know anything about the translation history for FMA, but I think there must have been a second release of some of the first volumes. I remember reading, for example, that in volume 8 page 66, the original Japanese panel was changed from a cross to a stone slab to avoid offending a Christian North American population. But in this version, it wasn't changed, which makes me think a second release was done at some point. The box set would then appear to contain the most recent release. I've noticed a few typos in translations and some inconsistencies in name spellings for people and places. "Kimblee" is once spelled "Kimbly", for example.

Despite what I've noted, I am incredibly happy with this purchase. To anyone who became interested in FMA through the anime FMA: Brotherhood, I recommend buying this. The original manga story really fleshes out and adds to what we see in Brotherhood. In particular, Brotherhood edited out a lot of the humour from the manga.

I loved the anime, whether it was Fullmetal Alchemist or the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.
Picking up the entire manga set was a definate must but buying them individually proved to be more expensive than I could afford (although they are worth every penny!)
When Amazon offered it at a 50% discount, I could not resist purchasing this baby.

You do the math, 27 books for 110$ + taxes with Free Shipping. That is a steal plain and simple.
In addition you get a novel, the complete manga set of the series (unlike Bleach and Naruto that are just incomplete manga sets since they are still on-going series)
The case is amazing and draws attention, some friends of mine were impressed by it and it makes transporting them much easier when you think about it, especially if you are moving.

If you are a fan of the FMA and/or FMAB, GET IT! You will not regret this beautiful full set in your collection.
