50. Fullmetal Alchemist: Fullmetal Edition, Vol. 1 by Hiromu Arakawa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My goal was to not start any new-to-me series that have many, many volumes but I couldn't pass this one up. This is a new edition of the classic manga with a new translation and added colour pages. I read the ebook version so don't get the complete benefit of the updates but I'm sure longtime fans will be pleased with this new hardback edition. For me, I loved the story. It is a very well-done first volume which covers a lot of material giving both plot and character plus also including background. An accomplishment not many volume 1s even try to do. Totally hooked from the first volume.
