Launch Date: November 13, 2018
Revealed by Viz Media—who is recognized for publishing many manga in addition to anime, I trusted that this was going to be a very good product. Whereas notably I by no means owned an artbook made by Viz Media, however often from Udon Leisure, however I used to be greater than keen to present it an opportunity as a consequence of their good document of their merchandise. The artbook rocks a pleasant and strong hardcover, like their Fullmetal Version releases. The web page paper materials is properly made in addition to it doesn’t wrinkle or bent too simply. Moreover, the artbook is ready to learn proper to left, which I believed was a pleasant contact.
As you open the e book, you’re launched to the FMA timeline, starting from 2001 to 2010, with many alternative quotes hooked up to it. As you proceed, you will see the very first covers of the FMA graphic novels, in addition to the G-Assortment comedian poster. Apart from every paintings’s title, I want there was some commentary within the white areas close to paintings to present extra details about the creative course. Nevertheless, it’s not detrimental.
The artbook is split by 12 months, with 2011 containing a coloured cowl illustration of the primary chapters of the manga in addition to early covers of Shonen Gangan (the collection’ manga imprint) of that point. As you undergo the later years, you will notice the chapter covers for chapters launched throughout that point. Nevertheless, what I discovered actually cool was that the artbook solely contained manga covers however had different illustrations, resembling covers for his or her drama CD, pre-order paintings for the PS2 recreation Fullmetal Alchemist 3: Kami o Tsugu Shōjo in addition to the paintings used for the announcement of the Wii-exclusive recreation Fullmetal Alchemist: Prince of the Daybreak. Too unhealthy a number of the sport by no means launched exterior of Japan.
The top part of the artbook had character artworks used because the frontispiece for the Fullmetal Version releases, although they don’t solely look the identical evaluating them to those I’ve. Lastly, you see Hiromu Arakawa answering how he was capable of create such compelling character designs explaining the method and the instruments that she used.
I actually love The Full Artwork of Fullmetal Alchemist artbook because it covers the whole cover-art historical past and different paintings and illustrations of the franchise. It felt like going by way of reminiscence lane of the collection. The artbook is sturdy and appears nice aesthetically. In the event you’re a giant fan of Fullmetal Alchemist, then do your self a giant favor and add this to your assortment.
