lol..

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
In a statement, the company revealed that its publishing sector is posting revenues nearly equivalent to those of its online gaming division. In particular, the company's Full Metal Alchemist manga series has been bringing up the sector. The Japanese comic book series sold a total of 8 million copies, spurred on by the franchise's anime debut in October. A Full Metal Alchemist PS2 game is creating additional buzz around the franchise.

Glad to hear the company is doing good. It's always good to hear a company doing good like this. It usually sprouts even more great anime.

Enix has been publishing manga for quite a few years, but FMA has become a breakaway hit. Three weeks ago, fma volumes took up 4 spots on the top 10 of manga sales for that week. This was beyond even many new releases, and some of those fma volumes had been out for over a year.

But this is no coincidence. They've been pushing fma in the bookstores bigtime ever since the anime was announced. Every bookstore has some sort of fma display with stacks of all the books. Square-Enix did some very smart marketing.
