In our country, however, the same tankobon edition was also proposed again in the Gold and Gold Deluxe series by Panini Comics, which again presented the story in 27 volumes in a larger format and with a dust jacket. Although not part of the original story, another edition, Fullmetal Alchemist Volume - Tabidachi no mae ni, number 11.5, was released in Japan, given to the Japanese who wanted to see the film Fullmetal Alchemist: the Sacred Star of Milos .
