@DistantBlue - Nice find! ^^
Yes, that is the preview of the next month's Shounen GanGan mag.

According to that, FMA is on the magazine cover of the next month's Shounen GanGan mag, and the inside color page seems to feature Hohenheim and Father, and the caption reads: Is this Hohenheim's fate?! Or, Father's plan?! Shocking color graphic inside the next issue of Shounen GanGan mag!!!

And, BTW, for the next month, the magazine is coming out on July 10th, not usual 12th (as I already stated at the end of my chapter 96 translation.) smile.gif

OT:
Also, the magazine comes with special DVD with interview vid of the VAs of FMA:B, etc. But, this is FMA:B anime and off-topic here, so if you have comment on this, please post on FMA:B Official JP site watch & news thread. smile.gif

Which means the chapter will be out when I'm abroad... ARGH!
My despair apart, I guess it's going to be yet another EPIC chapter... thanks DistantBlue for the info!

But amestris_star, you're always a broad.

*rimshot*

I'm really looking forward to seeing the continuation of Hohenheim's confrontation with Father. I still say Hohenheim has a plan of his own.

@penguintruth: In fact I'm generally always at Amestris, but this time I have to go out of the country for a week >D I'm on a secret mission for the Mustang-tachi.

Hm, I will not be home when the chapter is released, either. =/ Of course, when I'm excited for it.

REMINDER:

Guys, I don't think we need every member reporting his/her whereabouts on or around July 10th on this thread. laugh.gif
If you have discussions on the content of chapter 96, then please post, if not, please don't turn this thread into a spam chat thread. smile.gif




OT:
Personally, I'm kind of curious that we have fewer "serious" chapter content discussions for this chapter, compared to chapter 95 or some other previous chapters, as I think this chapter contains some very interesting stuff. (I would like to write longer post on this chapter's content, once I get less busy and able to catch up with everything. ^^)

I kind of wonder ... do everyone understands what's going on in this chapter, panel by panel?? (Or, probably you all do, but not as much interested compared to some other chapters because it's not about Roy, Riza, Ed, or Winry?? tongue.gif ) Just being curious. ^^

Oh, I liked this chapter much better than the past few, mostly because there were a lot of things I disagreed about with the way Arakawa handled Envy's exit from the story, but also because not only was their the amazing fight with Sloth, but between Hohenheim and Father.

I think, though, it was a lot more straight-forward than the previous chapters. Aside from speculating on what will happen between Hohenheim and Father, there's not much else to address about it.

Yeah, I think penguintruth's got it down. I don't think this chapter had too many "OMG" revealing moments, while chapter 95 had a lot of debate over Envy's suicide. We can basically just make predictions for the next chapter smile.gif

Thank you DistantBlue for the information about chapter 97. I thought that Hohenhiem had Father trapped. But now I am wondering what kind of plan Father has up his sleeve. I wonder if both Hohenhiem and Father can predict what the other is going to do. I mean they are the same person right?

July 10 it comes out. WOW! I am already excited. I really enjoyed this chapter. So I am anxious for the next one.

@penguintruth and kkg22104 - Yeah, that makes sense. ^^ I mean, compared to how Envy died, Sloth's death was less dramatic, and much less "controversial," I guess.. Sloth didn't get much "panel time," didn't get much character development IMO, and he mostly dug tunnels, got frozen, got thawed out, dug more tunnels, then killed over and over by Alex and others, and wimped out. sad.gif RIP Sloth.

@FMAobsessed - Nooooo. tongue.gif Father imitated the physical appearance of Hohenheim, and they both have Philosopher's Stone inside that were created from the same "incident" (so there might be some connections there,) but otherwise I think they are two distinct persons and independent of each other. Having said that, they were friends at one point, and knew each other, so they might be able to predict, to a point, and in fact I'm guessing that Hohenheim can predict and knows what Father is up to, but I have a feeling that Father is not quite grasping what Hohenheim is about to do.. We'll see.. biggrin.gif

And, speaking of, now that we finally see Father and Hohenheim "side by side," I'm enjoying seeing the contrast between the two in this chapter. It's sort of like, "oh gosh, it took us so long to get here, but I can finally see (though it's still vague in many parts) Arakawa-sensei's design for this story" .. kind of way. ^^

I sort of liked Sloth's more quiet, dignified death (if you can call being too lazy to continue to exist "dignified"). I mean, he's sort of the powerhouse of the homunculi, so he doesn't need to have any sort of dramatic demise.

I'm going to have to replace my signature soon, because nearly all the homunculi are gone!

@penguintruth: It's a cool sig though biggrin.gif

Sloth actually had an important job: he dug the tunnel under Amestris. After that...was he supposed to guard Father? And then he was defeated by the Armstrongs and Shig. He never seemed to be that important to because, as Tombow said, he didn't get many panels.
