About Fullmetal Alchemist
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. And whether they’re up against monsters, madmen, or military officials, the bond these brothers share will be the greatest weapon they have in the fight for their lives.

I was surprised by the weight of it as well as the size of the Artbook. Was expecting it to be this little thing about the same size as one of the Digipacks (Didn't actually look at this Unboxing Article until today).
Needless to say I am loving these 'Ultimate Editions' (also have 'Gurren Lagann' and 'Escaflowne') and can't wait for the next one. Also hoping that maybe one day down the line, we'll get one for one of my all time favourite Anime, 'Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still'. In my mind, an anime that defines 'Epic'.
Now I'm off to open the Gate of Truth. Good thing is, I already know what I'm going to lose when I do. Time. Specifically the time I'll be spending watching Fullmetal Alchemist.
