Wow, it looks like this chapter is going to take a completely different turn from what I originally though would happen. Although I am rather sad that we will not find out the current plight of Ed, it is rather nice to be finally turning to Amestris and the military. I was more than surprised to read that Rose has returned, and that Hoenheim befriends her. I wonder what twists and turns this chapter will provide. I'm getting anxious waiting for the raw to come out. It sounds like there is going to be a showdown between Hoenheim and Father...

Thanks for the translation, Tombow!

Whoa, this chapter sounds like it's going to be looong, which is awesome! I'm surprised to hear that Rose appears, but it sounds as though she's not going to be a key character. Hohenheim has been appearing a lot more frequently, and it seems that he's going to play a very important role in what's to come (but we all knew that, right?).

No news about Ed, eh? Well, I guess that's fair, since he appears in almost every chapter. It's time some other characters get more screen-time! But still, I'm worried about him. I hope he's alright; I imagine he's with the chimeras?

Looks as if this chapter shows us a lot. I'm glad that Envy appears, I've been wondering where he's been. It looks as though he'll have an important role, too.

Now I want the next chapter! sad.gif Another whole month of waiting, blah.

EDIT: I just realized, aren't Alphonse and Winry concerned about Ed? They haven't seen him for days, so surely they'd be worried? But then, from the spoiler summary, they don't seem to be... maybe they think he's perfectly fine? unsure.gif Strange...

That spoiler doesn't seem right to me : we see Rose, Hohenheim just left Izumi and Sigu like that, he succed to get so easily in a city in state of war? Nah, there is something off here! I mean, I have seen a spoiler for FMA two times before, but I think we musn't forget that it could still be a "fake"!

@Sannom - I hear your concern. ^^ If it makes you feel little at ease, let you know that the site that carries this spoiler summary has been providing with a near 100% accurate summary of FMA chapters for some time. (Only that we didn't discover about this site till fairly recently. I wish we had discovered about this Japanese site sooner!! XD)

It's in a Japanese blog site, and from what I read, the author of the summary buys the magazine each month in Japan as it comes out, read the chapter first, then write the summary of that chapter. In fact, I couldn't provide this summary yesterday because... the author made the entry in yesterday's Blog that he went to the bookstore but the GanGan mag was not there yet.

I call my translated version of it a "Preview Summary" (until the raw shows up) because the raw hasn't been shown up on the Web yet, but he wrote this as ACTUAL summary of chapter 78 as he read it. Yes, it could still all be fake, but from the past track record this author has, which is, like, near 100% accuracy on the past FMA chapter summaries, I think I can trust his summary. ^^

And, as far as your other concern, it has been 10 days since the collapse of the main mine shaft on Ed. So, I believe Hohenheim had a plenty of time to get to where he is in this chapter, by train, or by some other way. And, I think Hoenheim is very resourceful and can get around. smile.gif

----------

@Havanese - My guess is that Winry, Al, and others are of course very much worried about Ed (unless they already heard from him or something.. I hope he has received a necessary medical care and recovering nicely.. ) but, meantime, they should do what they have to do (yes, it's just my guess. ^^) I'm glad Al is not just all worried to bits and becoming incapable of doing anything else, but maximizing this opportunity and learning Rentanjitsu. biggrin.gif

----------

BTW, about one of the chimera selling off the information about Al, Scar and the company...
I'm guessing it could be a false information to divert the enemy to somewhere else..
Just my wild guess. ^^

Oh, and it will be nice to see Breda and other Mustang's gang!! ^^

Thanks for the translation, Tombow! <333

Wow, this chapter looks likes it's going to be nothing like I imagined. Long, too! <333 But I'm worried. It said it's been ten days. That could either mean the chimeras that are helping Ed have found a doctor (and, perhaps contacted the others) or he's gone ten days without medical attention. sad.gif Makes me anxious.

But I am so glad we get to see some of Mustang's crew again! I've missed them.

Woohoo! Looks like it's going to be a long chapter! Finally! Hoho and Rose? O.o never saw that coming. This is definitely going to be good! Oh please tell me Ed got some medical treatment and is recovering...I really hope he hasn't gone 10 days without any help. I swear if he dies...bad Celeste! >.< Can't think that way.
Anyway, it's nice we're going to see Mustang's gang back in our midst biggrin.gif It's been awhile. Still, I can't help but worry about Ed and worry for another month after this >.< Thanks for the translation, Tombow! Can't wait for the actual chapter!

Argh, even Tsubasa's new chapter is already out @_@;

*whines* I am getting really impatient >_<;;; I hope the raw will come out soon... Yes, I know i shouldn't be whiny and I know that raw providers have a life too, but I am just feeling impatient ;___; FMA is what's keeping me sane during final exam period! *has been refreshing possible raw source for 20 hours*

I didn't read the spoiler summary Tombow posted because I don't like spoiling myself like that ^^;;

*prays for raw to come out before her next exam, which is in 16 hours*

AA battery, I feel your pain. I am currently in my college's library (in the metallurgy section - I found it to be an FMA-appropriate location) checking every half hour. We do what we have to do, right?

It's strange not to hear from Ed for so long. It makes me worried. sad.gif Hope he's doing OK.

Then again, this could just be another example of Arakawa-sensei trying to drive us crazy. wink.gif

Thanks for sharing the summary, Tombow. biggrin.gif

Wow... there was definitely WAY too much going on in that summary.... and I get the feeling that Arakawa-sensei will not be making this a super-long chapter either. Interesting touches with the Hoho vs Pride thing.. I didn't think that Hoho's preperations were that complete that he can now go head-to-head with Father.. guess Hoho-Papa left Izumi with some info or instructions before he went off to Riole/Liole.

I just don't like the speed in which Arakawa is bringing all the information to light. It's like she's rushing to an ending and that makes me feel that the ending will not be up to the series' standards. And that would be a true tragedy :*(

and we could all blame Juushin Enbu if FMA ends up horrible at the end. =_=

Seriously, any one could tell that she has been *rushing* almost every chapter in the 70s range =_= I hope she wasn't serious about ending FMA in chapter 80s. If that really happens, I can't imagine the ending would be as good as it can possibly be. FMA's pacing was very good before. 4 chapters for the Ishbal war flashback was perfectly done. 1 chapter for Hohenheim's past was... ok, it wasn't too bad, but it can surely be done with more details and take up 2 chapters instead.... ok I'll shut up for the time being =_=;; *ish frustrated by both the wait for the raw and exams coming up @_@ I can't seem to concentrate w/ my studies OTL*

But yeah, bottom line is, she needs to stop throwing a bunch of information at us in such a "short" amount of time/pages! It's stressful and leaves us with a "Wha?! But but I am confused!/I want to know more!" feelings...

If she did somehow manage to end FMA by chapter 80, I think everyone of us would be O[]O;;;; shocked. I don't like the idea that FMA is ending soon D:

FMA manga is the source of keeping me as a FMA fan o.o I'm scared that I might not be as big fan as I'm now when it ends T_T

-Try to avoid reading the chapter summary because Chiisana want to 'read' the scanlation first-
