Newb to this thread but asdaksdsf this looks like my kind of place 8D

But...I've been more into Royai recently...it's weird, because I've never actually listed them as one of my "top" relationships (it's always been EdWin and AlMei 8D), but I've grown a stronger liking to them just by watching the scenes portraying their relationship. It's very sweet. :3


I started out a lot like this XD I was a big EdWin fan at first when I watched the first anime, but then I watched Brotherhood and read the manga and was like "THIS" and converted my top pairing to Royai. In the first series she didn't really do nearly as much, haha.

My, so many newcomers! ^^
Welcome to one of the most infamous topics in the forum, everyone!

She's absolutely right ^^ Riza is, probably, the best portray of "woman" in all Arakawa's work, alongside Rin Mei (from Juushin Enbu) and Henpukumaru (from Souten no Komori). They're woman who show all the great aspects to a female character: they have principles, are strong, but they're also caring, wise... Not entirely without sins, but always taking responsibility and, more than anything, always available to give support and advising, no excessive weakness or softness, but with no excessive of toughness as well.
It's no wonder Roy calls her "Queen", cause she sure acts like one. XD


Heck, all of the females in FMA are just so amazing. You don't find females like them in other anime/manga. ^^

But...I've been more into Royai recently...it's weird, because I've never actually listed them as one of my "top" relationships (it's always been EdWin and AlMei 8D), but I've grown a stronger liking to them just by watching the scenes portraying their relationship. It's very sweet. :3


Yes, the are! ^^ Arakawa is very good at creating female characters, isn't she?

When I first started watching FMA 1, I was a EdWin girl, but, since Royai was a little inexistent until like half the anime, that wasn't exactly surprising. lol In fact, I only stated to really notice and enjoy both Roy and Riza at the manga, since, during the anime they were like the "cool supporting roles", but that's about it.
In the manga, on the other hand, although I do love all other cannon (and some non cannon as well) couples, Royai just seems more natural to take the role of OTP of all times OTPs because I've never seen a couple that are neither a teenager couple or a couple that act like a teenage couple in anime and it kinda got into me. XD

EdWin was always more "meh" to me because it was so obvious. I wanted them to be together, of course, but I wondered about Royai all throughout. "Are they...? Nah..." (51 episodes later...) "Wait, what?" huh.gif Then I read the manga and died of sheer happiness. laugh.gif

Welcome Lisamustang and Pananan! So exciting to have so many newbies! smile.gif

Well, I didn't start as an EdWin fan. I honestly didn't care for any pairing in FMA1(or in any anime) before since I wasn't into romance. And while I know now that the manga/brotherhood has tons of RoyAi in it and portrayed the characters better than FMA1, I don't dislike how the first anime handled RoyAi, especially in episode 51 (which made me crave for more and (maybe) indirectly told me that "you want more RoyAi? Go read the manga"). laugh.gif

I'm not sure if anyone's gonna agree with me, but I honestly prefer the "It's going to rain today" scene in FMA1 than in Brotherhood. In the first anime, when Roy said that line, it was as if she understood it instantly, while in the brohood it took her a moment to realize what he meant. I'm not complaining though. So yeah, I don't know why I brought this up. XP

Whoaa...I watched the second anime series, even though there's a few things that isn't showed up in the anime, I think it's better, 'cause I heard that the first anime series is very different from the original ones, they changed all over the plots and even their character development..

is that true?

^Yeah, that is true...I agree with (I think it was jacksparrow589 who said this) that the façade that Roy puts across in the Manga/Brotherhood sort of becomes his personality in FMA-1. Not to mention he's very guilt ridden and suicidal; he simply isn't like that in the manga/Brotherhood --sure, there's guilt, but I think this acts more like a 'motivation' for him to get to the top, rather than something that gets him down like in anime-1.

And Riza kind of stands there looking serious most of the time. laugh.gif And it's probably where people get these common misconceptions of her, like being a tomboy or just generally being super serious and all that jazz.

(Someone will surely offer some better explanation later. laugh.gif)

ooh, I'd never really thought of it this way :0 Maybe this was because they started production of the first anime and defined the characters before Roy had shown his true colors in the manga?

--Interrupting the discussion for an important announcement--

SamusTheHunter--You're not alone--a lot of people don't read the rules at first! So, now that you know, I'd very strongly suggest that you read either A Pierrot's Aria's Newcomer's Guide to the Forum or A Newcomer's Guide to Forum Decorum, as well as our spoiler policy.

Anyone else who's new--if you haven't taken a look, please do! Lots of useful stuff.

---Back to the discussion---

A Pierrot's Aria--I can believe I'd say that, but I get the feeling I wasn't the one who actually did. tongue.gif

Pananan--Yeah, nothing, especially not Royai, was very well-developed in the manga when the first anime came out. The lack of this amazing pairing is almost forgivable in light of that. biggrin.gif

GhyZe--Yes, the first anime is very different, but worth watching. There isn't as much Royai as I'd like (but I'd love a whole series about them, so I digress...), but there are a few moments that just made me melt.

SamusTheHunter--Ah, yes, but if they were to be all over each other, it would kind of wreck it, in my opinion. One of the reasons I love Royai is because they're not that sort of couple. It's amazing to watch them go through what they do, and still remain able to maintain that collectedness and not give into all those feelings we're so convinced they have for each other. smile.gif

("...we're so convinced..." = "we all totally know", by the way. biggrin.gif )

@Reverine Methernlance Are you talking about anime couples on general or Royai? I'd say certain couples have different ways of making people..."squee". Like jacksparrow589 touched upon, if Roy and Riza were all over each other it would ruin the kind of relationship they have. So in terms of making people "squee" when it comes to Royai would most likely involve a way which shows their deep relationship or bond without going too over the top. I guess whatever you do you'll have to write it in a believable way that suits their type of relationship. (I hope that makes sense).

Also, I hate to be the ol' English/grammar/spelling Nazi, but could you avoid using "text/chat speak" and use "your/you're/you", "to/too" rather than "ur/u", "2". (I'm not trying to be nasty, but you'll see this type of thing in the guides jacksparrow589 kindly posted. happy.gif )

@jacksparrow589 I'm almost positive it was you. tongue.gif

Personally I think it's because they're so composed, the bond between them, and their horribly tragic past that just screams "star-crossed lovers." (*needs to tvtrope less*) I agree that it would be ruined if it had been intentionally made obvious or they were all over each other. What makes it Royai is that the shippers insist it's clearly there, and some people just don't understand that's it's a fact what we see, haha.

Yes, you're right! I don't understand when they're thinking something bad about Riza or Roy...
I think FMA characters are well done and their personalities are so amazing...

*sigh*

I bet Roy's personality in first anime series is not like in the manga version/second anime series, and it really makes me dissapointed...
