All going well, I should get my copy tomorrow. (This is when it should arrive-- but this is Parcel Force I'm dealing with!) If it does arrive tomorrow, and no one else has posted scans by then, I'll try to get it scanned
smile.gif

ETA: Sorry guys, it didn't arrive today --I'll be getting it on 26th! laugh.gif

I found some pics on Baidu:
Warning! Series Final spoilers!
http://i53.tinypic.com/oa5el4.jpg
http://i53.tinypic.com/zlofok.jpg
http://i52.tinypic.com/o5vr78.jpg Very nice pic of Ed & Al. ^^

And, this blog entry has some info about Arakawa's comments in the artbook.
http://d.hatena.ne.jp/growfat/20110425/1303662228#seemore
Also, Arakawa seems to have made a comment on the future of Roy and Riza. Can someone translate it please? smile.gif


---------
ETA: v Thanks for the translations, Tombow! biggrin.gif So that comment implies that Roy and Riza can still be an item, they just can't get married. That’s great! ^^

Thank you, Michiyo-!! happy.gif

Here is the part of the linked blog as posted by Michiyo- above, talking about the Arakawa-sensei's comment on her Roy & Riza drawing:

(Warning!! Possible major Spoiler ahead!!)
QUOTE
アニメDVD/BDの2巻初回版特典BOX用イラスト(マスタングとリザのツーショット)へのコメント

>連載が終わった後、ファンレターで「大佐と中尉は結婚しないのか?」的な質問がけっこう来ました。

結婚しちゃうと、軍の規則で”上司とその補佐”ではいられなくなっちゃうんだよぅ。



<And, my quick translation of this blog entry>

(Warning!! Possible major Spoiler ahead!!)
QUOTE
Comment by Arakawa-sensei on her drawing of Roy and Riza for Anime DVD/BD vol 2. Special first-print bonus gift box:

> Arakawa: After the conclusion of the series, we got many questions from fans that were asking "aren't the Colonel and the Lieutenant going to get married?"

> Arakawa (cont.): [I couldn't get them married because..] because of the Military regulations, if they get married they can no longer stay as the superior officer and [his] aid....



So... that's like her (Arakawa-sensei's) round-about way of admitting Roy and Riza are an "item"? wub.gif


And for anyone being curious... more entries from the above posted blog, blogger's comment (Warning! Series Final spoilers! --->) on this pic

QUOTE
書き下ろしは、体を取り戻してから数年後といった感じのエドとアルだった。最終回掲載時のガンガン付録の時計の、図柄の候補だったもの。

対称的な構図で椅子に腰かける二人が描かれており、きっちりした服装で両者共に紳士オーラが出ていてイケメンだった。

試験管、インク、紙、マグカップの横に並んでいるのは皿と箸だろうか。並びがカオス。ご飯食べつつ研究しつつ、研究の記録を書き留めていたのか。

シーサーっぽい置物などは明らかにエドの趣味だ。舞台は、改めてリゼンブールにでも建てた兄弟の新居か、仕事場だろうか。

エドは手袋を両手にはめているが、右手首のあたりは生身の色

エドは懐中時計を持っているが、国家錬金術師の銀時計とはまた違ったものみたいだ。図柄がなく無地である...


<And, my quick translations of this blog entry (paraphrased)>
QUOTE
This drawing was done especially after the series conclusion. This was one of the candidates to be used as the image for the clock that was the bonus gift for the Shounen GanGan with the last chapter of FMA. It looks like several years after they have got back their bodies.

In the drawing, Ed and Al are sitting on the chairs in symmetric fashion. Both of them are well-dressed and looking gentlemanly and looking quite handsome.

Around them, we see a test tube, ink bottle, paper, mugs, and also a plate and chopsticks that are placed randomly, looking as if they have been eating in the room while taking notes on their research.

The statue that looks like Julius Caesar must be Ed's. IMO it's reflecting his taste. The place maybe their new house in Resembool, or maybe their new study/office.

Ed is wearing gloves, but we can see the flesh colored skin around his Right wrist.
Ed is holding a pocket watch, but it looks different from the State Alchemist's watch. It has no design on the outside, and the outside looks rather plain.




Also, looking forward to your report, A Pierrot's Aria! biggrin.gif

Mine is coming sometime next week but I'm impatient & had to look up this thread

Thanks for the translations and the picture previews. Can't wait to get mine. smile.gif

I ended up ordering mine through Animate to get the exclusive box that comes with it but gosh it was expensive (exchange rate is especially bad right now). It was totally worth it though. I've been waiting years for this art book.


edit: And I really like the information about Roy & Riza. It makes sense why they can't officially marry. But of course that doesn't mean they are not an item.

I've got mine and have started scanning it in. happy.gif (They won't be the best scans in the world --but you'll get to see what's in it, right? xD;) There really isn't a whole lot of new stuff, the image with Roy and Riza IS in it! I looked through it 3 times and must have skimmed over it...It has a lot of the calendar images and volume covers. There's about two pages of a "cow-shed" diary type thing at the end of the book.

I'll update this post with an album when I've finished. I may have to take a break in between to pick up another package, though. I was expecting another one besides this, and while this got past customs free of charge...I just got a notice to say the other didn't!! xDxD So I'll be going to pick that up and pay for it soon. (Just letting people know in case they notice a stop in updates LOL)

ETA: Done...Although, I didn't scan the pictures that spanned across two pages --except one, which was the one of Ed and Al mentioned above -- this is because they're really awkwardly placed in the book and therefore they were difficult to scan (without totally wrecking my book...which I don't really want to do....) >< I'm really sorry about that. Luckily, the one of Ed and Al was near the end, so the spine of the book was flatter. I'm really sorry about this, but I assure you that there was nothing new on these pages --they were images such as the covers for volume 23 and 13 etc and some other colour pages that have popped up now and then. I will go back at some point and try to get a decent scan of them, though.

Also, sorry for the mix up at first...I seriously didn't see the picture of Roy and Riza until I came to scanning it, so I thought it wasn't in the book to begin with! laugh.gif So I apologise if I almost gave members/guests who are Royai fans a scare! xD

The following images DON'T contain end of series spoilers. [Artbook 3 Album 1]

Warning! The following images DO contain end of series spoilers. [Artbook 3 Album 2]

And finally, these are the two pages at the end featuring our beloved Arakawa-cow. happy.gif

Sorry these aren't super duper HQ scans, though...But I think they'll do for now, right? happy.gif;; If there's an image with unreadable Japanese text, just let me know and I'll try to make a clearer scan.

Now to rest my aching shoulders and wrist. laugh.gif

Thanks for the scans A Pierrot's Aria

Would anyone be able to translate some of Arakawa's more interesting comments about any of the pictures? I don't actually know what the more interesting comments are since I can't read any of them. I would leave that up to the translator. smile.gif


edit: They did leave out some artwork I was disappointed about such as

* The B&W exclusive Animate Pictures
* The Art Arakawa did for the film (such as that picture of them all in school)
* A picture Arakawa did of literally every character

But all in all it is an excellent art book with a lot of great images included.

@Kirara - As soon as I get the chance I will check all the posted pics with the comments, and try to translate some of them. happy.gif (I've been maddeningly busy today.)
...Or, if anyone would like to take some shots at translating Arakawa-sesnsei's comments, please go ahead and do! ^^

^ You're very welcome! ^^ By far, the hardest job must have been scanning all these pages, and compare to all the work A Pierrot's Aria has kindly done scanning them, this is much easier ^^ (Except, with my slow computer it takes forever to check all the pics XD)

Update: Checked about the half of the scanned pics so far. So far nothing that reveals any important additional info about the character, or Arakawa-sensei's thoughts on FMA, etc (...except that Roy & Riza pic, of course. xp)

Oh wait...except one on Ed (Warning! Series Final Spoiler! --->) on this one
She says she thinks Ed is purposely getting struck by Winry's wrench... (note: i.e With Ed's athletic ability he can probably easily dodge Winry's wrench, yet Arakawa thinks he is intentionally NOT dodging getting struck by it. smile.gif)



...I will come back and continue checking later. ^^ After checking all, I can probably go ahead and translate them anyway, although most of them really don't have much substance....
