(( First off, you guys rock. Thank you to everyone who's being a part of this project. Uhm, hope mine's not too big... ^^; Word counts 477 words (EDIT: scratch that, now it's 1,041 characters spaces not included), I don't think it includes spaces! If it's too big I can rewrite it. It looks bigger with all the paragraphs but I didn't want it to be all bunched up together, you know? ))



Dear Arakawa-sensei,

Where should I begin? I've been an anime fan since I can remember. I "met" the first FMA anime in 2005 and I liked it very much.

Reading your manga a year and a half ago, my passion for anime was rekindled!

Never have I read such a deep story, with intense characters and mind-twisting plot.
I have never laughed so hard or cried so much with a story. You transported us into a different world, taught us valuable lessons... You got us to THINK.

Having to wait a month between each chapter was both painful and exhilerating, and each time the 11th of each month approached my heart throbbed out of expectation.

In just a year and a half a new element was added into my life and it will always be here: my fullmetal heart. It was also a privilege to watch the characters grow and your art with them!

Thank you: for all the time invested, all the happiness you brought your fans, all the deep emotions. The adventure, the friendship, the moral values, the humanity of it. The characters I love and know so well, because you INSISTED on making them all so perfect.

So thank you also for a lovely, happy ending. The best ever. Good thing Ed grew taller, otherwise Winry wouldn't have married him, right? ; )


Love from,

Nefertekas (Teresa Semedo), Portugal

I hope this is short enough ^^



Dear Arakawa-Sensei

It has been an honor and a delight to read and watch Fullmetal Alchemist. It has been a constant companion of mine for quite a few years, now. Every since 2003, when I first got to hear about it, I fell in love not only with FA, but with all the works you’ve made. It had been years since I liked any mangakas’ work this much.
I was for quite a while away from the world of anime and, honestly, was quite tired of it, but your works gave me back my enthusiasm for it. It reaches me to a level beyond my understanding.
Although I’m sad it’s over, It holds much more beauty, a story were you have a message to pass and give it a closure. It gives a sense of completeness.
You have won a lifetime fan in me, you can be sure of that. Congratulations for such a masterpiece and good luck with your career. I hope to hear a lot more about you.

From google translate:

親愛なるは荒川先生

これは、名誉と喜びを読んで、鋼の錬金術師を見ている。これはかなりの数年間、今私の定数コンパニオンをされている。すべては2003年以来、私が最初に聞くようになったが、私は愛のFAだけではなく、落ちたのが、作ったすべての作品。私はmangakasの作品をこれほど好きなのでそれは年をしていた。
私はかなり長い間だったアニメの世界から離れと、正直なところ、非常にその物語の、あなたの作品疲れていたそれを私の熱意を私に返した。これは、レベル私の理解のかなたに私に達する。
私は悲しいが、それが終わる、それは多くの美しさを保持して、話がメッセージを渡す必要があると、あなたは、それを閉じてくださいとした。それは完全感を与える。
あなたは私の生涯のファンを獲得している場合は、そののことを確認することができます。おめでとうあなたのキャリアでこのような傑作と幸運です。私はあなたについて多くを聞いてほしい。

Arakawa-sensei,
Fullmetal Alchemist has, in short, changed my life. Aside from being an wonderfully story with engaging characters, your work has influenced my daily life. Sometimes, I see a situation and think, "What would Edward do here?" Ah, thank you, thank you so much. Now, I am enjoying Juushin Enbu.
With much appreciation,

荒川先生

鋼の錬金術師が私に与えた影響を、手短かに一口で表すなら、鋼の錬金術師は私の人生を変えました。この作品は私に素晴らしい物語と魅力的なキャラクターを与えてくれたばかりでなく、私の日常生活にも影響を与えました。この漫画に出逢って以来、時々私はある状態に直面した時、「エドならどうするかな?」と考えてしまいます。
ああ、荒川先生ありがとう、本当にありがとうございました。
私は今は獣神演武を楽しんでいます。

本当にありがとうございました。

Dear Hiromu Arakawa,

I´m so glad that I can thank you of this way. FMA isn´t only a manga, it´s a great story with great characters and you can learn a lot about it. There are many moments in it that I love and I can say that this is my favourite story ever.

If I had to choose a character I would choose Van Hohenheim. He´s my favourite character, a person with a sad past that has been living his own life with all those feelings and memories... a father that couldn´t give their sons all that he would like, his love for Trisha and his sons... it´s wonderful. But choosing only one character is hard and there are many great deep characters... every character is amazing!

Oh, and I love the ending and those words of the end... "a fullmetal heart..."
And the Hohenheim´s death... wonderful...

I can imagine that you are not only a great mangaka but a great person too. Congratulations for your work, keep it up!
Good luck and be so happy!

P.S. now I´m buying "hero tales" ^^
Also, I'm sending you a present, my "thank you" fanart that is also being sent in this mail to you. It's showing my sculpture re-creation of your famous "cow" figure. I hope you like it!

DSender, Daniel Sender, Spain



<Hello DSender, since we can not make "attachment picture" on the actual letters to Arakawa-sensei, we changed your letter to as shown above. Hope you don't mind. ^^ Please feel free to re-edit the wording. ^^ ~ Project team staff>

Dear Arakawa-sensei,

Thank you for nine years of an awesome manga! When I started Fullmetal Alchemist at the age of eight, I had no idea the series would become such a considerable part in my life. FMA has taught me so much about life, learning, and determination. I hope you're extremely proud of the world you've created, because while it's technically only on paper, the life lessons you can learn from the series transcend make the series as real to me as the air I'm breathing or the chair I'm sitting in. FMA is unlike any other manga out there, because you put what really is important in life and mixed it with great character depth and plot growth. If I were to pick a favorite character, it'd probably be Winry Rockbell, because she's such a strong heroine and a role model for us girls. You are an amazing artist and writer, and I'm looking forward to your next series! Thank you so much for sharing FMA!

Sincerely,
sealy7, United States of America

Thanks for the person who will translate my letter and I do hope that Sensei will receive this:

Dearest Arakawa-sensei,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you for the great success of Fullmetal ALchemist. It was the best! Your work inspired me to overcome hardships with courage and to learn from my mistakes. FMA isn't just like any manga series filled with action and comedy but it is also a series that lectures about life and is based from some reality.

Sensei, thank you very much for your hardwork. I hope you will continue to inspire other people. Thank you for that cool pipsqueak alchemist you created.

More Power !

Sincerely,
Divine Marie, Philippines

I'm probably a bit late to the party, but hopefully I'll still have time to get this to the official mailers by the due date! Thank you very much to the person who will translate this for me since I don't have the skills to do it myself ^ ^ :



Dear Arakawa-sensei,

Thankyou for so meticulously crafting such a wonderful, wonderful manga ("Fullmetal Alchemist"), the world and its science, the characters and their feelings and the epicness of the plot! I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed reading the manga and how much I appreciate you writing such a satisfying and happy ending for the characters whom I love. ^ ^ It is so rare nowadays to come across a good manga with a realistic and yet happy ending, so I am very grateful to see you include it! Once again, thankyou for creating such a wonderful manga from Start to Finish and I look forward to your next work!

here's my letter.

Dear Arakawa-sensei,

I've been watching the Fullmetal Alchemist anime for almost two years now. I still can not find any series more intense or as epic as your creation, Fullmetal Alchemist. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making such an amazing series.
It helped me get out of a bad time during my life. In 2008, I tragically lost all my living grandparents in a 5 month time frame. It was sad, but then I discovered Fullmetal Alchemist. It has changed the way I view the world.
I loved everything about the series, from the characters, to the story, to the amazing plot twists and the alchemy. Truly amazing! A part of me died inside when I found out it had ended. The series itself is amazing, and very well written.
Sensei, there are not enough words to describe my gratitude for making such an amazing series. I wish I would have gotten into this series the day it came out in the USA, truly remarkable. I look forward to watching the rest of the Brotherhood anime and reading the manga. Thank you for making Fullmetal Alchemist.
Love,
15 year old girl, InuNaruPokeAlchemist, USA

I've been helping out with all the thank you letters that I forgot to post mine! ohmy.gif

Dear Arakawa-sensei,

I first began to read Fullmetal Alchemist in 2007, when I was starting my first year of college. Your work had such a strong ability to entertain and engage me, and gave me so much to look forward to in life, even during hard times. Like you, I aspire to being an artist someday. I will continue working towards my goal, just as Ed and Al have done throughout their own journey. Thank you for inspiring me and so many others with your wonderful series! I look forward to your future works!

Sincerely,
Victoria (United States of America)

My letter-

To Arakawa-sensei

Your works have changed my whole perspective on manga, and to date, Fullmetal Alchemist is the best story I have ever watched or read, in any language. To me your original ideas, your messages that you get across by your amazing artwork and dialogue is something that is so amazing you truly are the Cow Goddess XD

I wanted to let you know that your stories and manga are one of a kind- it is so much more than the ordinary battle shounen manga, that I think it needs a new category! Truly, this saga is even better than Harry Potter. You are so so talented and FMA has been an important part of my life. I am sad, but I am happy to see you bring to a close a complete and epic story (instead of going on for 23902802380 chapters other manga seem to have). Thank you giving me the honour to read such an amazing work, and I look forward to your next story!

I'm sorry if I'm too late. Thanks to all the people putting there time into this. Here is my letter:


Dear Arakawa-sensei,
I first want to thank you for writing such a beautiful original story in Fullmetal Alchemist. You put real emotion and intellect into the story line and created a world that was believable and characters I liked. I especially enjoyed the subtle love of Ed and Winry. I’m happy that the female characters played an important role in the story and weren’t just “eye candy”. I looked forward to each chapter as it came out. I even felt it was as epic as Star Wars! You are a wonderful storyteller and I wish you the best in the future!

Thank you,

Celia H aka Animeoldtimer (United States of America)

My word count says this is 980 characters, but it looks longer for some reason.
--------------------------------
Dear Arakawa-sensei,

I have been following the Elric brothers on their journey for nine years now, and I can not believe that such an amazing and finely-crafted story has come to an end. Each one of the characters that you have created seemed to leap off the page as I read, and it was as though I too was traveling alongside Edward and Alphonse and sharing in their struggles and triumphs. I do not think any other manga has taught me so much about human nature, love, and hope in the face of incredible odds as Full metal Alchemist has. Edward has to be one of my favourite characters in fiction as I admire his courage, optimism, and his strength never to give up until his goal is achieved. It has been such an honour to read your work, and I hope to pass this story on to a friend who can begin their own journey with some of most memorable characters in manga.

Thank you! I look forward to your next story and wish you the very best,
Kristine L (Edamame), Scotland

I am very sorry for being late, I don't want to stress you in the last minute, but I've been working on my Thank You-fanart the whole week! You are doing a fantastic job everyone who is organazing, translating and helping! I am SO glad that I have the opportunity to participate in this!
I'll try to keep myself short. (That didn't work. Sorry. 1052 characters.)

----------------------
To Arakawa-sensei

Fullmetal Alchemist brought me so many new thing to enjoy in life. I can without a doubt say that I have never loved anything fictional more than I love Fullmetal Alchemist, and any characters more than the Elric brothers.
Not just becasue of the story, that is so clever and thought out and it makes me tear up right now, thinking about it, and how it ended. Not just the characters, who are so admirable and interesting with personal developement that we can follow! Not just the artwork which makes me groan in envy (Riza's hair in chapter 58!) and inspire me. Not just the funny parts, where I finally found my kind of humor!
FA crashed into my life when I was on my way of discovering what it mean to be a fan and to be a part of a fandom. It swept me away. Fanart, fanfiction, discussions about episodes, chapters, characters, theories, and meeting other people who are just as crazy about a thing as me! Fullmetal Alchemist was my first obesession, and I will never forget.

Thank you for being so awesome,
Linn V. (MsLinn), Sweden

Dear Hiromu Arakawa,

Full Metal Alchemist is one of the best mangas ever created! Friends introduced me to it some years back and I was hooked. I couldn’t get enough of it and still can’t to this day. With the way the story transports you to a world so vast that it seems to transcend the very pages on which it’s drawn and teaches you about life and human nature, it's no wonder it’s touched my life. It felt like I was growing up alongside my favourite character Winry because I could empathise with her so well. I'm really glad she found happiness with Edward after so many trials and tribulations. It makes me feel like I can also look to the future and go forward toward my dreams, that I too will able to gain a Fullmetal heart along the way just as they did. To me, the story will never end because it lives on inside of all of us; in everything we do and strive for.

Thank you very much for an inspiring, incredible journey that I will never forget.

translation accuracy check request please smile.gif (Ack! I'm so sorry it's too long, but its been translated partway on google, maybe that'll help?)

Dear Arakawa-sensei,

I haven't been reading Fullmetal Alchemist for a long time like everyone else. This July was a year after I started reading your manga series. Since then however, I have been avidly following Fullmetal Alchemist which has been a comfort to me, even if it was only for a year. I admire your creativity and skill at drawing and if anything, I hope to draw like you can when I grow up (next to being able to use alchemy). I am glad to have came across your work while it was still in progress so I always had something to look forward to every month. Fullmetal Alchemist was inspired me, enough that I would often doodle transmutation circles and clap my hands in hope when I was too impatient to get the job done. Your character Edward Elric also inspired me, and if anything, I would want to be more like him in personality: caring and selfless. When Fullmetal Alchemist ended, I was happy about Ed and Al finally getting their bodies back (it was about time they did), but I also just realized how meaningful Fullmetal Alchemist was to me and I would never see Ed have a short tantrum, or see him use alchemy again, or see any more of the Fullmetal Alchemist universe. That it was just...done. But Fullmetal Alchemist taught me to keep moving forward and try to achieve my goals, no matter how hard they seem. Thanks for the memories Arakawa- sensei, without Fullmetal Alchemist, I would be a very different person.

Thank you very much for Fullmetal Alchemist,

Caroline Chiou (The Breezy Alchemist), USA
