Currently, the first volumes of Fullmetal Alchemist and Soul Eater are available on the site, as well as the first two volumes each of The Record of a Fallen Vampire and Yumekui Kenbun: Nightmare Inspector. Each volume is on sale for US$5.99, a limited-time launch sale price. Square Enix has not announced what the regular price will be.
