I thought about it too, that we can discuss 2 chapters per week, and maybe when we'll get to the final arc of the story (from Vol. 21, the chapters after the timeskip) we can do one chapter per week.

My other idea is that chapters which belong together, for example the Lior arc (chapter 1-2) , or the Rush Valley arc (chapters 17-19) can be discussed on the same week.

^I think its better we start when its finished, it just makes sense... it would be like a circle (I like circles); we finish the last chapter and then start with the first. Like an ouroborus tattoo.

I like the idea of grouped discussions, though it might not work near the end where it's just one long arc that moulds into itself blah blah... I suppose by then we could resort back to a 1/2 a week thingy.

I'm definitely up for this.

I think the suggestion about 2 chapters a week for starters, then one a week as they become longer/deeper is a good idea. If we only did one a week we'd be here for 2 years and I can't say for definite if I'll last that long! I'd just end up impatient and reading them all consecutively over a very short time. tongue.gif

Count me in! I'd love to re-read the whole manga and discuss it entirely... that's something I wasn't able to do, since I came into the fandom when we were around chapter 80-something.

Oooh discussing the manga from the beginning sounds fun. Because even though I have been following FMA since like 2004, I didn't read the chapters online, I only bought the manga volumes.

I (seem to) remember a re-read project on LJ from ages ago (3 yr ago, maybe?) that is no longer active. Will anyone be offended if the LJ re-read project's info and data are used here, or is this re-read project going to be a pure, fresh project?

^I think I know which LJ community you're talking about. I really enjoyed reading through their thoughts on the chapters, even if I didn't participate in it.

As for a re-read of the whole manga, you can count me in. I didn't get into the manga until fairly late in the game (around the time of the Pride reveal) so I'd love to discuss some of the early chapters with the people here. Besides, with no more chapters coming out, I'm going to be suffering serious withdrawals, so having this to look forward to will help wean me off gradually. laugh.gif

Doing two chapters a week to start with sounds like a good idea, otherwise, as people have said, we'd be here for over two years.

One question: Will we be doing the gaidens too, or just sticking to the main chapters?

I think it is better to re-read from the start, as this is meant to be done AFTER everyone has read 108. For the old project, people didn't re-read the FMA story in its completion, so the previous re-read project and this new re-read project is totally different.



I agree with starting at 2 chapters per week and then eventually switching over to 1 chapter per week idea.

Sounds like a fun idea. I'm marathoning the entire series through 107 right now before getting to 108 (just started chapter 29) so a lot of the earlier chapters will still be fresh in my head by the time this project starts. I too got into the FMA fandom relatively late, first watching it maybe a little more than a year ago and only caught up with everyone on the manga come chapter 101.

I like the idea of two chapters per week. It will keep the discussion lively and give time for those of us with other commitments. I look forward to it especially since I didn't start here when chapter 1 when it first came out.


OT:
I'm curious to know what chapter the manga was on when everyone first came to this site. smile.gif
