Quote Tombow: "Ed is about to depart from Winry for a long period, catching her saying 'reserve me,' Ed used that and blurted out his future proposal, like, 'speaking of reserving you, can I uh.... can I reserve half of your life?' ... and that's how I took this scene."

That makes Ed's expression make more sense. Ed asked for half and when Winry said 100%, Ed understood it as something along the lines of, "Why wait? Let's get married now!" And then Winry heard herself and started backpedaling, thinking she'd jumped and promised too much? Their awkwardness was cute.

I really enjoyed the ending and the closure that came with it. After how the first anime ended, I was always praying the manga would have a happier ending and I wasn't let down. Ed and Al really earned their happy ending, if you ask me.

Although, I never was an EdWin fan so I kinda rolled my eyes when he proposed, but it was still cute in a way. I'd like to see Arakawa do some short gaiden comics of his family life.

"Btw, Misty- Nala, others can probably explain this better, but yes, Mustang got his sight back. But that came with the obligations as a part of condition of him using Marcoh's Philosopher's Stone, i.e. him devoting part of his life/and the new policy of Amestris for recovery of Ishval. In a way that's so fitting in my opinion for Mustang who now lives to right the wrong done by him and others to the country. And, as for Havoc, it could be that he is learning how to use his automail legs? (...actually, I haven't finished reading the whole chapter, so I may be wrong on this. ^^) "

You don't even need to read the whole chapter to know that your assumptions are wrong =) Havoc stated quite clearly that it was his spine that had gotten injured so automail legs wouldn't solve the problem. Nerves are damaged, not the body parts.

I think Ed and Al are too hard on themselves over Nina, Scar killed her within hours of them finding out about her, so they may have been able to do something if she had lived!

Another trivial detail - what's Ed gonna do for a living now, lol?! XD Being a do-gooder doesn't put bread on the table! I guess we can assume he was well-paid enough as a State Alchemist that he's set for life. Maybe he got a reward from the State for his services during the Promised Day. Or maybe he'll make a living as a researcher somehow even without the ability to actually perform alchemy.


Sorry, I know this was a couple days ago that you said this, but I just got around to reading these posts. ^^''

I think Winry is the one that brings home the bacon. XD She still makes a lot of money per appointment. I think that even with just the money that Winry makes (which I assume is like that of a doctor) the family could be pretty well off.

I was welling up, excellent end to a very well delivered story!

It'll take something awesome to beat it as one of my favourite mangas!

Hehe, I felt like I was playing where's Waldo. For example, did anyone spot:

Fan at the left corner next to Ling's throne
Mustang is now a general
There is no birth nor death date on Van Hohenheim's tombstone
Riza cut her hair again
Ed and Alphonse both grew to be same height

maybe it's just me, but I love the subtle things Arakawa throws in happy.gif

Ed's doing research now right? Bringing in new studies and teaching probably gets you a grant from their type of government, information hunting doesn't come cheap.

WARNING! A question about Chapter 108.

If Ed gave up his alchemy skills and destroyed the gate of truth can he still learn alkahestry or not?

No, he can not. He has lost his ability to perform alchemy completely.

Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

It does feel a bit like Ed is left up in the air - Winry's closing remark of 'I'd get bored of a man who sits still' indicates that Ed is this the same old restless adventurer, I can't see him turning into a housewife very soon. I guess it's up to our imagination what field he'll move on to: physics? rockets and aircrafts (CoS style)? biology? purely theoretical alchemy? the latter just sounds a bit odd in the context of FMA, so my guess is he'll do something else...

My hope is that Arakawa will write one more work set in the FMA-verse, and we'll get an Ed and Al cameo - I love the idea of seeing Ed in the role of batty senior professor or random traveler stumbling into the storyline by accident...

Yes, the one and only, the issue with the final chapter of FMA manga!! This issue had been sold out so fast on the day it came out in Japan that not only it is no longer available from the publisher, many Japanese FMA fans who wanted to purchase this issue haven't had the chance to do so!! (Hence, the publisher is reprinting the entire chapter 108 again on the next month's issue of Shounen GanGan magazine, but this one is the one and only the original printing of the FMA manga final chapter, and we are even giving away, along with the magazine, the original bonus gift, the FMA manga series completion memorial digital clock also!!

This issue is HUGE! More than 1000 pages, with FMA final chapter alone covering 100 plus pages!!
I know some of you, even the one who normally do not order GanGan and prefer owing volume books wanted this particular issue of GanGan mag with the final chapter of FMA manga, even though don't speak/read any Japanese!! ^^

So... here is your chance to own this copy of GanGan mag with the final chapter of FMA!!!
(the following is the pic of the actual copy to be given away, except the face of "memorial clock" is kept "mystery" ^^)


Disclosure: Please note that the copy is already opened and hence in "previously owned" state, but please rest assured that it is in very good condition. ^^

And yes, we are giving away the original bonus gift, the "FMA manga series completion memorial digital clock" along with this copy!!

Please read on to find out what you need to do to win this prize!!! biggrin.gif



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



We are announcing the contest prizes for the "Thank you, Arakawa!" Fanart contest!!!

Up till now, the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd prizes for our "Thank you, Arakawa!" Fanart contest (jointly hosted by the FMA Image Gallery and the Fanart forum of our board) have been a mystery, but no more!! We are unveiling the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd prizes for the contest!!

Here are the prizes:

1st prize: 1 copy of Shounen GanGan magazine with the series final chapter of FMA manga (Yes, THE final chapter of FMA!!) along with the original bonus gift, "the series completion memorial digital clock."

2nd prize: FMA pencil case that was a bonus gift for the July issue of Shounen GanGan magazine.

3rd prize: Fullmetal Alchemist wrist band and FMA budge set that was a bonus gift for the November issue of Shounen GanGan magazine.


Here is what you need to do for the chance to win one of these prizes!!

1. Go and read July 2010 Arawaka Appreciation Fan Art Contest details.

2. Create your original fanart showing your "thank you" to FMA, or it's author, Hiromu Arakawa.
If you'd like, you can use any FMA characters from any FMA series (FMA-1, FMA:Brotherhood, FMA manga) for your fanart, as well as your depiction of Arakawa-cow figure.

3. Your fanart MUST directly show your thank-you to FMA and/or Arakawa-sensei.

4. However, no spoiler content for the FMA chapter 108 is allowed (it's because we'll have the board wide public poll as part of the judging of the winners for the contest, while many of FMA fans, including those in Japan, have not had a chance to read the final chapter of FMA manga. ^^) If you are not sure whether your fanart would be considered as "chapter 108 spoiler," then please send PM to Tombow and ask. ^^

5. Enter the contest, by posting your entry on July 2010 Arawaka Appreciation Fan Art Contest thread, and also upload the image to July 2010 Arakawa Appreciation Fanart Contest section of our Gallery by Saturday, July 31, 2010, 11:59 PM (on your time zone)



---

Are you interested? Good, then get started!!
You have only 1 week to come up with your "thank you, FMA/Arakawa!" Fanart!! biggrin.gif
