Sorry for the delayed response, but thank you so much Kale for scanning all these pages! biggrin.gif (Now if only this stupid computer would load them faster...)

About the English spellings, that's really weird...how can Fuu = Who? That's the only one that seems more off than the others.

EDIT: I'm still confused about Ling/Lin. Check out this page: It clearly says "Ling Yao" on his nametag thing.

@kkg22104 - Good memory!! ^^ Haha, I remember that scene!
Yeah, it's confusing, isn't it? tongue.gif These spellings for Xing characters look as if some English speaking person who had no knowledge on Chinese names was consulted for the English spelling of these names, over the phone, and then just randomly assigned some English words that do sound similar to the phonetic sounding of these names. >.<

@Tombow

Not a problem. Like I said, the list is pretty small especially considering how many people are actually listed in the book.

As for the names...I just copied them down, but some of them (particularly the Xing characters) just seem completely off... mellow.gif

Yeah, ever since I read that chapter, I always spelled his name "Ling" because I assumed that Arakawa knew how to spell her character's name. tongue.gif Inconsistencies really bother me...and now I'm debating about if I should spell it with the "g" or not XD

Hi! Just wanted to give you guys a heads-up. Since I'm back, I'll do the omake translations in a few days, so please check the Hagaren Omake Thread later for the scans happy.gif (Any volunteer for editing? If there is any, please PM me. I'm a little picky with editors, though! *shot*)

Yup, that's why I'll keep going with the Chinese-looking names anyway.
I mean, May, Who, Ranfun... just no. Those are clearly transcribed so English people pronounce them right.

As for Lin/g... I guess either one's fine. Personally, I'll keep going with what the manga said.
(then again, the manga has "Selim Bladley" once or twice on it. And the 'l' came from "Lebecca" XD Clearly a spelling misstake)

EDIT:
Oh, and thanks Kale and reef for those scans!

Fairy tale omakes are laugh.gif

Yay! \o/

Double post (will get merged, I guess?) for flipping over scans...

Me comments:

- Three chapters: 1- Elrics and other good guys/civilians, first Amestrians, then Xings. 2- Mustang and the military. 3- Bad guys.
In the first one characters are ordered by chronological appearance, importance and relatedness, in that order: So, for example, Rose is the third and Cornello, technically the fourth, only appears as a minor related character. XD (The bartender is the fifth XD )

- I find the Best Scene selections very well chosen in general.

- Western transcriptions are given only for the most important (main) characters. sad.gif

Chapter 1:
- Jude the Blind Alchemist has his own little spot too. The unknown-by-the-bad-guys confirmed human sacrifice! Nice.
Nina and Shou Tucker get only a minor mention (a quarter of page) in the same page. Screw Shou, but poor Nina. sad.gif

- Hohenheim appears quite early, though... perhaps because of Trisha (who appears as Hohenheim-related, since he's more important than her)

- Marcoh and Scar's "get naked" is one of Marcoh's Best Scenes. xD

- Dominic is called a tsundere XD

- The Rich Couple gets a page! happy.gif

- Scar's weakness to all things cute is pointed out too. happy.gif

- Whole 4 pages for Yoki sama! Including his cameos (Yoki Circus... XD )

- 2 pages for Mobuo Mobuta, several (if not all) appearances. At the end, Arakawa says there are other non-introduced recurring characters?! ohmy.gif

- Brother Clay/Cray does not get no name. He was named so in the first anime, but no official name here. Too minor, I guess. tongue.gif
- Yoki's minions when he was the Feudal Lord at Youswell appear working as bartenders for Kayal's father later!! (on Mei's arrival) Nice one there!
- Ishvalan kid from the slums isn't named either, again unlike anime 1.
- Guardian A who gets killed by Barry (and thus gets volume 3's inner spine) gets a mention as such. happy.gif

- Resembool station master and wife count as recurring chars too. Cute. happy.gif
(Ekio san and Ekiko san XDDD )


Chapter 2:

- To Be Continued... (or not, go figure. tongue.gif )

@AA battery - Thank you for the heads-up!! ^^

@Sensenic - Thank you for these very informative comments!! Just reading your comments makes me smile!! biggrin.gif
(BTW, I'm adding the post here so that your next one ..if your post after this one.. wouldn't get merged to the one above, as your post above is already exceeding the limit for the use of emoticons in one post. XDD)
