First time FMA manga readers, please post your thoughts and discussions on chapter 64 here. smile.gif


For info on the "Reading Reference", go to page 8.

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


~ Chapter 64, Pride Watch: Day 1038 ~

Democracy at a 520 Cenz discount? That's a steal!

As GreedLing ponders the merits of single flesh-colored glove, Trinity...I mean, Ran Fan seeks medical attention. While Knox has a pep talk with God, Kimbley, tired of being just a plot device for 50 chapters and running, begins his new life as a trick watchmaker with some assassinations on the side (Cover the bills, you know). Elsewhere, Roy meets with a very-much-Gummerman-and-not-very-much-Pride-whatsoever-nope-no-Pride-here in a dress; Immortal armies, religion 101, and Raven's inherantly creepy smile will never be the same. Finally, Edward and Armstrong meet in a library (also mysteriously not Pride ), deciding to head for the northern boarder, guarded by Sir Not Appearing In This Manga for generations.

Yeah, I probably overdid that.

So discuss!

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Sorry for the offtopic, but I just saw it and I must say it (and not that there's much "topic" to go off from here for now, anyway... sleep.gif):

@Neph: I openly declare my love for Tim Schaffer too! Specially DOTT and Grim Fandango... are so "almost-offensively" good... m(__)m
Well, you can see in my sig too happy.gifU

Haven't played Psychonauts, tho'...


And I'll end it here.

Not that I have much to say about ch.64 except that I'm paciently waiting for it happy.gifU

Full Throttle and PsychoNauts for me, a little dash of Monkey's Island here and there. I've been thinking of finding Grim Fandango on Amazon.com, so that'll hopefully be another excellent installment.

Well we will probably be getting plenty introduction to the 'new crowd' we spy at the end. Although it is carrying on its almsot starting a new tale so scenes will be set more and such. Otherwise, no idea.

I vote for Nepharski!

In the new chapters ahead; I wonder if we'll get to see what Drachma is like. I'm curious about these other countries outside of Amestris. Besides Drachma, the only one that hasn't been spoken of yet is Aerugo in the south, and I'd bet good money that we're going to hear about it soon. Could these nations be helpful to the cause against Father? Are they already allied with him? Do they have their own forms of alchemy?

Maybe I should wait for answers to the old questions before I start thinking of new ones. rolleyes.gif

@Antimony - Those are intriguing questions!! I'm also curious about Drachma, and welcome the chance to see what it's like in chapter 64!! biggrin.gif

About Grumman's mention of Lior...do you think it will take some importance from now?

Aerugo, good point! I can imagine Aerugo allied with Father (I don't know, but that short scene of the Ishval arc...)
But Drachma, I don't think so. Drachma isn't in good terms with Amestris...I bet that if Edward says something about Bradley there, the people of Drachma would be glad to help...

I haven't been on in a while, what with college and all that, so I apoligize in advancce if I repeat something said in the previous thread.

First of all, love the intro, Nepharski! happy.gif

Second, wasn't Aerugo the country near Ishval that was selling them weapons? Or am I just getting my facts mixed up again?

@ElvishVamp - Nice to see you again!! Yes, I agree about Nepharski's intro!!
And, second, yap, I think they did. Or, they might have "given" arms to Ishval. (Says Aerugo was Ishval's "Patron," in chapter 58, page 30.) smile.gif
Oh, BTW, the same page has this map also:

(It says: Aerugo's plan was/is to incite Ishval to cause trouble, and tire Ameristris. smile.gif)
