Book Overview

Breaking the laws of nature is a serious crime

In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Equipped with mechanical "auto-mail" limbs, Edward becomes a state alchemist, seeking the one thing that can restore his and his brother's bodies...the legendary Philosopher's Stone.

In the midst of a heated battle, Ed and Prince Lin of Xing are...

Favorite Volume Thus Far

Translation is a little sketchy on this volume, but as usual the mangaka did a beyond awesome job. My favorite volume in the series because I love the interaction between Ed, Lin, and Envy that goes through most of this volume. Very funny stuff, and lots of revelations in this volume. Great read for any fan.

Big ugly battle time!

Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist, vol. 13 (ViZ, 2005) Ed and Al continue the battle with Scar in order to lure one of the homunculi out so Lin can capture it-- but Greed shows up to the party while Lin is off tangling with Wrath. Once that mess is sorted out, then comes the real fight, where greed encounters Roy Mustang, from whom he holds a very deep grudge, and the battle between humans and homunculi rages anew. As if that's not enough, there's another huge revelation at the end of the volume. Arakawa's really cranked this one up; can't wait for vol. 14. *** ½

Great Manga, acceptable translation

This volume is enjoyable for any fan of FMA, since it contains scenes with practically all of the characters sans Major Armstrong. The five stars is for Arakawa's writings and drawings, which are superb in this consistently excellent series. The translation, however, is not perfect. From time to time it seems a little rough, perhaps going for a literal translation when an intent-based translation would feel more authentic. Don't let that stop any FMA fan from buying this volume and supporting Arakawa, though, because it's still a fantastic manga even with this translation.
