Thanks for posting the link to the preview!

I'm so excited! CSakuraS said in the comments that this chapter is called "The Seven Sins", so I wonder what that could mean...

Oh, me too!

I think we're really nearing the last chapter. ;_; On the picture of the GanGan cover, Ed and Al are both restored and eating pie (and lookin' good, might I add).

... Could this mean...? Well, Arakawa's drawn human!Al before, but has never tossed out such huge indications that he was restored...

nyaaaargh go away incredibly hot picture of Ed, I want to stay sane....

I nearly missed the small pic of Ed and Al eating pie in their restored forms... now someone tell me what's that supposed to mean. *cinematic voice* Is this a sign that the end of our heroes' heart-chilling tale is near?

Arakawa: Nah, it's just that in this chapter I'm going to (once again) torture the the living daylights out of Ed. But it's Christmas, so you get a thumb of Ed and Al eating pie as a compensation happy.gif

Well, maybe not. Man, I wish I could hibernate until the chap comes out.

=======================

And, the following is...
Spoiler Preview Summary of chapter 78!!!!!! ^^
(If you don't want to be spoiled please skip to the next page.)

(Translated from this Japanese site and this Japanese site and this Japanese site.)

-------------------------------------

Chapter 78: "Seven Sins"


10 days since the collapse of the mine shaft.
Both Ed, and Kimbley are still missing.


Elsewhere in the Amestris...
Breda in the Western Army is getting in touch with Falman in the Northern Army.

Perhaps for the creation of the Grand Transmutation Circle, there are many bloody incidents in the Western region.
In the Southern Army, Fuery is on the battle front against Aruego, and fighting for his survival.

All the informations are relayed to Mustang through the flower lady.


Elsewhere in the North.... underground.
The tunnels Sloth has been digging have been all connected.


In the town of Reole... (Note: Going by the manga spelling for Reole. ^^)
Rose is working to provide meals for people who became homeless.
Among them, Hohenheim.
Hohenheim befriends with Rose. Hoho asks Rose that he wants to see the remains of the Letho church. Rose shows the underground passageway underneath the church.

The underground passageway stops at the "Poison Pond."
Because of the pond nobody can go further.

Hohenheim constructs a pass over it with Alchemy, and investigate the passageway further by himself.
Passageway becomes dead end. Hohenheim creates a further pathway with Alchemy, and finds the tunnel Sloth has been digging.

Suddenly, the Shadow Eye (that looks very much like the Homunculus in the Flask, with the eye) appears and attacks Hohenheim.
Hohenheim defends by creating blocks from rocks with Alchemy, etc., but can't stop the Eye.

Hohenheim runs, and comes back to the pathway he had just created while ago.
Hohenheim stumbles and falls. The Eye draws near...

But... for some reason, the Eye can not go further and enter the pathway where Hohenheim is.
The Eye recognizes that Hoho looks very much like Father and asks, "Are you Hohenheim?"

Hohenheim realizes that Pride can stay alive only in the tunnel (and in the Central.)
Hohenheim: "Looks like your 'range' ends there?"
"You will die if you step out of it....?"
"Just like the flask you used to be in, if you step out of the certain lines you will die, isn't that it?"
"I hit it, huh?"

Hohenheim: "Are you angry?"
Eye (Pride): "I do not carry such emotion as 'anger'. I left all other emotions behind with Father. My name is 'Pride.'."

Hohenheim: "It is said that a man has Seven Sins. So, the first Sin that one has separated out was 'Pride', I see. They say 'a name shows its identity.' That form of yours, that is the form of 'that one' who is conceit and proud of self... your Father's true nature, huh?"

Eye tells Hoho that Father requests Hohenheim to accompany the Eye to see Father.
Hohenheim answers back that "The slave #23" will show up to see him even if uninvited, and heads back the pathway.
Back at the entrance, Rose asks Hoho what he was doing. Hoenheim answers: "Declaring the war."

For the Hohenheim's challenge Father answers... "I will be waiting for you."


In the Northern front....
Drachma has declared war against Amestris. Along with them is Kimbley!
Drachma Army and Kimbley press toward Briggs Fort.
In collusion with Drachma Army, Kimbley instigates the start of the war by passing the information to the Drachma Army that the Briggs fort is absent of it's leader.

In the absence of "Briggs' Northern Wall" (note: a.k.a. Major General Armstrong) the plan is that within the Briggs fort the ones under Kimbley will work at the same time and bring the Northern Army to the state of confusion.


Elsewhere in the North.... A refuge camp for Ishvalan people.
Al is learning Rentanjitsu from Mei.
Marcoh is giving Medical cares to Ishivalans. Yoki is playing with Ishivalan children.
A chimera soldier is chopping fire wood.

But...
Another chimera soldier secretly makes a phone call to to the Führer's office with the information about Scar and the gang. Envy takes the call, with Bradley on the side.
Chimera soldier: "My name is Zumpano. I work for Mr. Kimbley."



Caption: ...All their secrets are going straight to the enemy?! Homunculi head for the gang!!!

(End of chapter 78. Story continues to chapter 79 next month.)

(I will correct typos and other errors later, but the translations are more or less accurate. ^^)
(ETA: Note: spelling for Zumpano is tentatively made up, by me.)
