We've survived the madness that was MCM London Comic Con October 2016. There's lots of anime news for us to go through and share with you. Lots of release details and so on. One thing that really caught our eye was Anime Limited's release of Full Metal Alchemist. They've bundled the original series in an ultimate box set. Now they've been drumming up interest in this release for a while and having actually seen in at the Anime Limited Booth we can confirm it really is the Ultimate Edition.
The real insane part of the set is "The Gate" made of resign it weighs in at 5kg (that's not a typo, it's five kilograms). The set in total weighs 8 Kg!
It'll ship mid November 2016. Anime Limited's shop has it for £209. That's a £90 saving. Anime Limited are also very clear that once this is out of print that's it.
Details as follows:
In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what they’ve lost – but how far will they go to get it? From the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse quickly rise to fame within the ranks of the military, realizing along the way that the power to create is only ever a breath away from the power to destroy.
