Fullmetal Alchemist is a Japanese manga*** series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa. The world of Fullmetal Alchemist is styled after the European Industrial Revolution. Set in a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques, the story follows the brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who are searching for a Philosopher’s Stone to restore their bodies after a disastrous failed attempt to bring their mother back to life through alchemy. It was adapted into an animated television series and films.
I surmise that these playing cards were designed by “0nly Y0u” (on the basis of artworks of Hiromu Arakawa ?).

Ah, I own these cards! Got the entire set including the case for 50 cents at a flee market in Tokyo! There isn’t any information on the producer on it, though…

I googled it for a bit, turns out that it came with some sort of special edition of volume 13 of the manga 🙂

Do you know where I can find one of these decks? I had one in high school, but it’s lost. I have such good memories, using them with my friends. Please email me, if you can! Any information would be appreciated! (-||-)

Welcome on my blog, Jabberwocky.
The post is about one deck. So I do not understand your “…one of these decks…”. I think the deck is a fan project. I am not sure it was printed. Anyway all contacts I know are mentioned in the post.

Now I know that this deck was printed. But I don’t have any information about its producer or seller 😦
