The site I was (very very slowly) reading Full Metal Alchemist on changed their site and the series is no longer available. ACK!!


I might have to buy them now. That's a LOT of manga to purchase.

There are manga sites going down all over the internet; very sad times. But *cough* I might be able to hook you up with downloads of the online version...

There was a notice put up a few weeks ago that OneManga would be closing (I had rather stupidly forgotten that you were reading there or I would have forewarned you) so some rather dedicated people in one of the FMA LJ comms compiled all the scanlated chapters and offered them for download. The original post is locked to the comm (and you probably don't want to join. It's weird there), but these are the links, which hopefully are still live:

Chapters 1-20 (
Chapters 21-40 (
Chapters 41-60 (
Chapters 61-80 (
Chapters 81-100 (
Chapters 101-108 (

If you can lay your hands on the official translations I recommend them- there are some annoying persistent mistranslations of certain words but overall they're very well done, and you get all the silly extras at the end which are unfailingly hilarious- but the cost does rather add up. I have all 23 volumes currently out and I don't like to think about how much I've spent on it overall...

Also, should I happen to be in Wales for a week in early October, might you also be around...?

Why yes! What ever would you be doing here? Where in Wales will you be heading?

And thank you!

Well I haven't had a proper holiday in several years and given that I actually earn money now I'm thinking of indulging myself. I have my eye on renting a teeny place in Laugharne, on the Carmarthenshire coast, for a week.

Enjoy the manga! *g*

That sounds great! Wow, a whole week! I could meet you in Carmarthen one afternoon and we could walk around. I think Carmarthen is a bit of a hole, but well, beggars can't be choosers.

I'll have my car so if there's anywhere nicer that's convenient for you it shouldn't be a problem! As long as it's not halfway up a mountain or something; I am not the best with little country roads.

Lampeter University has an Anime society. There should be someone you can borrow them from.
You could see if you can get them from the town library or put in an inter-library loan request.

Ceredigion doesn't have FMA, alas. If bravenewcentury's offer can't work out then I'll track down the Anime society.

I hope that you can find another site to read the series on. If you can't, buying the manga will be an awesome investment. It's one of my favourite series of all time. :D
