Wow! That is... unbelievable. Sure this setting was to be expected, I mean, it is the end. But the lightning, the armor head, the ripped automail. Beautiful, It seems like human Al will be in the spine, in full clothing and all.

The blood looks weird. I don't if it is because this is a painting(?). Okay, it probably isn't a painting. The blood just looks like watercolor. In manga, Ed seemed to be bleeding out, thick blood and everything. Well, the thick blood is visible coming from his mouth.
Sorry, I'm ruining the mood, I know! It just looks like rash.

Ooh, I love how the logo is all glittery this time! (at least it looks like it?)

Anyway, that's just really beautiful. But I have to agree with Misty-Nala, some of the blood actually looks a bit weird. (especially what's on his forehead and hair, I dunno. The rest of it looks okay though)

Other than that, perfect. So this is the last volume that will come out, huh?

Nice cover!! Thank you, hilary!! happy.gif

Here we are, volume book for the final chapters! And, appropriately, Ed is on the cover (of course! ^^)!!

And, ....glittery title? Haven't seen that coming. XP I guess it's for the final vol. book.
(ETA: oh wait, they may not be glitters... please see my next post below for my second thought on how this title looks.)

About the blood looking like water-color-paintingish, as mentioned in posts above... maybe they did not want it looking too gory because this is the cover pic? unsure.gif

Anyway, great looking cover! ^^

Hm, I see nothing wrong with the blood...

The cover is beautiful. It really gives the feeling that it's the end. And, I like that the final volume has a glittery title. smile.gif

I expect Ed on the spine, as human Al already got one.

About the "glittering" title, I'm getting a second thought, that these may not be glitters, but like, kind of sparkles of illuminating lights...

I just compared this book's title to all the previous cover tittles on Japanese volume books.

(Warning: MAJOR series final SPOILER below!!)

And, I see that previous volume books all had the title in SOLID colors, whereas the title in this volume is in Gray, and....

...this title looks kind of transparencyish, like, as if it's fading away! ohmy.gif
Is this symbolizing fading away of the title, Fullmetal Alchemist, in part as a book title because this is the last volume book, but more so symbolizing the end of the existence of the alchemist known as Fullmetal Alchemist???

If so...wow, another clever way of showing the content of this volume, but not surprising, knowing how smart Arakawa-sensei has been in this series, with her way of hiding story hints in many ways throughout the series.



(But, looking at that way, looking at that title cover makes me kind of sad.. T.T )

Yay! Glittery glitter!

But the first thing that came to my mind is that Ed has strange looking face...

The cover is allright in general.


--------------------
Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

Wow, what a beautiful cover. <3
It's really touching, and Ed just looks so happy.
I love the door of truth behind him, and how his metal arm is just kind of falling apart, and what Tombow pointed out about the fading title. ;_; You really just get the feeling that this is the end.

Glittery logo???
I didn't pay much attention to the title tongue.gif Yeah, it does look glittery. Despite what Tombow said, I don't think it is fading away. I really like to think that it is glittery like "a glorious end". Well, we'll make a bet and see who wins, okay biggrin.gif

Yeah, the blood looks weird in the hair, as you pointed out. I have two theries:
Either the blood was like dabbed into the hair
Edward's hair is transparent.

But it does look weird.

Again, about the title. Some of you keep saying that fading title is another way of showing how things were thought out. I want to ask: Did Arakawa have anything to do with the covers, other than the cover and spine picture?

Agreeing with Forsaken Love here, I don't see anything wrong with the blood. It just looks kind of like watercolor paints, which I think looks really nice.
I think Arakawa does use paints for the covers, so it could actually be watercolor.

I forgot to mention.. I'm with A Pierrot's Aria on Ed's expression, that he looks very serene. happy.gif
I like how he looks on this cover, with his golden eyes looking straight at us with his serene expression. smile.gif



OT (kind of ^^):

@Misty- Nala - Gahaha, sorry, but no bet from me. XD As you know, this isn't a "competition," nor "who would win or lose" XD (At least, not to me, anyway. To me, it's about sharing/exchanging views and through it, possibly multiplying the "viewing pleasure/joy" for all. ^^ )
Some people may see this title and view it as "glitters to decorate the last volume book" and that may make them happy, and if so I'm very happy to know that. ^^ Or, others view this title and may find yet other completely different interpretations, and if so I hope they can share their interpretations with us, and I would be glad to learn those also. smile.gif
