Bargain omnibus editions of one of the bestselling manga series of all time! 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. Contains Volumes 16, 17 and 18! The Elric brothers head north to Fort Briggs in search of May Chang, whose Xing alchemy may contain the answers they seek. But as Ed and Al soon discover, the only thing less forgiving than Briggs’s weather is the regiment of hardened soldiers assigned to defend it. Matters grow even more complicated when Ed and Al get thrown in lockdown and the sadistic Kimblee arrives from Central with Winry as his hostage. But even Kimblee’s cruelty pales in comparison to the evil of the new homunculi watching from the shadows... Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen audiences.

A junior high loser enters the vivid world of his dreams where, at last, he is a hero! Ginta Toramizu is a 14-year-old kid in junior high school who doesn't have a lot going for him: he's near-sighted, doesn't do well in school, he's not good at sports, and to top it off-he's short! But Ginta is a dreamer and has had the same dream 102 times: it's always in the same fantasy world where he is a hero blessed with all the special abilities he lacks in real life. Then one day a supernatural figure appears at his school and summons him-to the world of his dreams! In this strange universe filled with magic and wonder, he is strong, tough, agile-and he can see without his glasses! Thus, Ginta begins a quest in search for the magical items known as Arms, one of which may have the power to send him home. Joining him on this epic journey are his companion Jack and the valuable living, talking, mustachioed iron-ball weapon known as "Babbo", which everybody wants but, it seems, only Ginta can possess!
When an alchemical ritual goes awry, causing Edward Elric to lose limbs and his brother to become trapped in a suit of armor, Edward begins a quest to recover the one thing that can restore them, the legendary Philosopher's Stone.
