Get Ready for the Fullmetal Alchemist Exhibition’s International Debut in Malaysia!

If the names Edward and Alphonse Elric ring a bell — then you must have heard of Fullmetal Alchemist! The story follows the journey of the Elric brothers as they seek to regain their human form after a botched attempt at human body alchemy — a forbidden form of alchemy.

The exhibition is running at Level 2, Pavilion Bukit Jalil (near Tsutaya Bookstore) for two months — from the 24th of January to the 24th of March. Visitors are greeted by several wall scrolls of characters as they enter its halls. To the left, a figurine of Edward and Alphonse sit behind a glass case. This is based off the promotional art mangaka Hiromu Arakawa had done specially for the exhibition.

Further in, we were treated to the sight of the costumes worn during the shooting of the Fullmetal Alchemist film Fullmetal Alchemist: The Revenge of Scar (2022). Up close, the detail was stunning — each scuff mark and seam was perfect on the heavy fabric.

Fullmetal Alchemist Manga Universe Showcase

Then we entered the Fullmetal Alchemist Manga Universe Showcase that featured approximately 300 items of both manga manuscripts and colored illustrations. (Both were duplicates.) I couldn’t help but stare in awe at the story arc brought to life by the careful arrangement of the seven showcase zones. Not only that, several props from the 2022 live action film were on display. The dedication to the craft was impeccable and I couldn’t stop admiring the hard work that had gone into them.

There was also a stamp rally — at six different checkpoints crew members would stamp our booklets — each with a different character. At the end of the stamp rally, what awaited me was an exclusive Fullmetal Alchemist sticker. I simply thought that was it, but I also received an honorary Amestris Army certificate (#67, woo)!

The Fullmetal Alchemist exhibition wouldn’t be complete without me talking about the original merchandise area. You can grab plushies, art prints, and more! All in all, I had a blast and I can’t wait for you to experience Fullmetal Alchemist Exhibition with your own eyes!

Tickets for the exhibition are now available for sale through Ticket 2U. Keep up to date with event news via Facebook and Instagram!
