The Aniplex+ online store unveiled two sets of exclusive Fullmetal Alchemist merchandise on Friday. This latest wave of manga- and anime-inspired goods includes sumi-e (ink wash painting) prints and leather cases.
Sumi-e artist Okazu created special paintings of Edward Elric, Alphonse Elric, and Roy Mustang that appear on Japanese washi paper for the the sumi-e prints. The prints come framed and cost 7,560 yen (about US$67) each.
Japanese leather brand Ojaga Design created two pass cases and one coin case for the collaboration. The inside of the pocket watch coin case include Ed's reminder to himself about the day he burned his house down. The inside of the Al pass case features one of Al's beloved cats. The pass cases cost 12,960 yen (US$115) each, and the coin case costs 14,040 yen (US$125).
Aniplex+ began accepting pre-orders on Friday, and the pre-order period will closes on January 8. The items are slated to ship in mid-February.
Sanrio also debuted a variety of Fullmetal Alchemist goods this fall to celebrate the live-action film inspired by Hiromu Arakawa's manga. The film open in over 190 countries and territories around the world, including in the United States and Europe.
Okazu created Rurouni Kenshin sumi-e prints last year.
