Chinese Fullmetal Alchemist manga?

Is there a chinese version of fullmetal alchemist manga? I have been searching for ages in many comic shops but the staff said there are no such titles.

As far as I know, FMA has not yet started publishing in other countries & languages yet...

However in Malaysia, you can find Chinese FMA published by 天下 (Note: this is not Hong Kong's 天下出版社 ) which is also seemingly sold in Taiwan (it has the Malaysian and Taiwanese prices on the covers).

I'm wondering if they are a manga bootlegging company... Anyone can verify their legal status?

I never heard of tian xia publisher before... I wonder why no one pick up FMA? I thought the taiwanese/hkers are very fast in such stuff.

It could be that Square-Enix is asking for a high royalty fee that so far no other publishers are willing to pay. Another factor could be negotiations with censorship beauraus to see how much could be left in uncensored. Many many factors.

I see.... thanks for telling me. I don't think there's anything to censor (maybe nina's story?) I hope a legal version will come out soon.
