Ohman I'm just spamming this thread today, aren't I?

But there's another thing that I didn't notice until I zoomed in closer to the picture - Al's helmet is all scratched up and weathered, and well, so is Ed. He's covered in blood and scars, his shirt's torn, and his automail fell apart all together. It just shows how much the two of them have been through and had to get through, to get to this. c: It's kind of sweet.

That’s a really nice cover. Still totally speechless, not gonna repeat what everybody said already. Just add two things:

About the blood: I’m with those who see nothing wrong with it. First, because it does look a lot like watercolor; second, because not all blood has to be thick blood, you can see fillets of thick blood coming out of his mouth and left arm, but the rest is more like hardened blood that stuck there.

And about the glittery title: at first, it looked ridiculously over-the-top to me, but after reading Tombow’s and Misty-Nala’s interpretations, I’m starting to think it could actually be well-thought. To me, both ideas are correct. Well, we’ll have to wait until the book is actually in someone’s hands to confirm it, but if it is really “transparent” and glittery, that could mean something shining in glory, but fading away really quickly, the “glorious end” that Misty-Nala pointed out. And I’m already getting sad sad.gif

On a side note: don’t know if this has been mentioned already, but I bought Japanese volumes 1-25 two months ago and was quite amused by finding out volumes 24-25 (probably 26, too) have their titles in shiny metallic colors, unlike all the rest. I don’t know why, but it makes me giggle, like, what’s the point? Is it because it's ending, or they actually went out of visually-distinguishable colors? And now, we have glitter, lol, I could have seen that coming.

1) I'm too busy to turn on my computer.
2) I got shy, and didn't come back to the discussion.
3) I hate you, and I'd rather ignore you.
4) Your point got me speechless, congratz!

Thanks hilary. Oh... This is it, isn't it? *sniffle* I don't see anything wrong with the blood on the cover, I think it looks quite good. I admit, I laughed when I saw the sparkling title, but it's still a nice touch nonetheless. smile.gif

Oh, I wanted to cry all over again just looking at this!! Leave it to Arakawa to outdo herself everytime. By just showing one character and an armor head, she makes me want to bawl!!

Absolutely beautiful cover, one of my favorites by far.

...this title looks kind of transparencyish, like, as if it's fading away! ohmy.gif
Is this symbolizing fading away of the title, Fullmetal Alchemist, in part as a book title because this is the last volume book, but more so symbolizing the end of the existence of the alchemist known as Fullmetal Alchemist???


Okay, now I REALLY want to cry T____T

Thanks hilary!

I like the cover and don't see anything wrong with the blood. Probably because I don't know how to paint like Arakawa.

Tombow, as I read your suppositions for the title I started crying like a child ;_;''

It's like Hagaren is ending for the second time, so sad...;_;

*cries*
this is a beautiful cover, as expected from Arakawa Hiromu!! I love the composition and the colors AN the 'sparkling' title fonts.


--------------------
Goodbye, Fullmetal Alchemist. Thanks for the memories.

-the manga, characters, story lines, the ending, the Brotherhood series, the first anime and the movie and all things related to it, are the only things that I will always love like how I love my own life.-

There's a TVCM for Vol. 27 on the Gangan site:
http://gangan.square-enix.co.jp/tvcm/comic...en27/index.html

(Wow, the title is very glittery! laugh.gif)



EDIT:
I just found this on Baidu:
http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=937405217

A 3 pages long short story about Trisha and Hohenheim from Vol. 27!
Page 1
Page 2 & 3

It looks a touching story where (chapter 108 spoiler!)Hohenheim and Trisha meet again after his death. ;_;

Wow, wanted to post this, but I see you went before me. So sweet.

Wonder what they are talking about.


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

It may take a while.

That Trisha and Hoho omake is so...beautiful. That brought tears to my eyes. It's so short but it says so much. I adore the last panel.

I won't lie, I did shed a tear. laugh.gif

It's amazing that Arakawa has created such a strong story that just looking at the omake, without even knowing what they're saying, got me choked up.
