The thing with translations is that unless a scanlation team has their own translator they usually just use what's there, and I browsed through the translators on Mangahelpers and HB is currently the only English translator doing translations of Fullmetal Alchemist's most recent chapters. If not for him, we most likely would not be getting a scanlated chapter this quickly, if at all, so let's not bite the hand that feeds and be grateful that there are so many people on this board who can clear things up when need be smile.gif

I also want to stress that OneManga is not responsible for the translations on their site. They do not scanlate manga, they simply host it. Whichever group releases their scans the fastest is generally the one that gets uploaded to OM. And, like I mentioned earlier, since there is currently only one English translation of FMA 98 floating around on Mangahelpers, translation-wise it doesn't make a difference whether the scan is uploaded now or days from now. The only difference we'd see would probably better quality cleaning and typesetting.

Really, the scanlation groups and translators are working very hard at no profit to them just so we can enjoy our favorite series without having to wait to buy the tankoubons, so I'm okay with a liberal translation and I am very thankful to the people here that let us know the more literal translations smile.gif

As for the line, I still think it's nice that Roy acknowledged Riza as the one who talked him down from from squashing Envy. It doesn't really make a difference to me whether he said "My Lieutenant" or "The Lieutenant", because he knows it was her that saved him. I still think it's cute :3

He's with one of the girls - considering the temporal setting of the game itself, that's exactly around when they show him dating his informants - does Elizabeth-chan is with another man ring a bell? XD

And why is the scarf red? OO

The red scarf looks good with the brown - reminds me of fall colors.

My friend will be getting this game for me - dunno when, but he told me he'd get it for me.

Not that I deny Royai. In this regard, the way Roy loosened Riza's grip on her weapon is way more meaningful than any royaish mistranslation.

BTW. has anyone noticed that the way he loosened Riza's gun was VERY similar to Ed talking Winry's gun from her?? Not the situation in itself, but the gentleness. ^^ So cute!

LOL

Well, on second thoughts... I suspect that he wore the white scarf with the black outfit of his... the red (and Kale pointed that out to me and made me change my opinion sort of...) goes well actually with the brown... man, does Roy have some awesome fashion sense *grins*

Ooh, nice job pointing that out, I have no idea why I missed that similarity! It's like a parallel situation to two of FMA's best couples! biggrin.gif

Oh, and @star: Of course Roy has good fashion sense, how else would he get so many women to like him? XD tongue.gif

Actually, taking a better look at it, he really looks better in brown...

See?! See?! I have a pretty good fashion sense. tongue.gif

I know what colors work and stuff. happy.gif

Joking aside, I can't wait to actually play the game - hopefully soon.

Oh! That girl does look exactly like the woman in the pub... I thought of her immediately after seeing that part in the game! So we see her (if it is her) before she even shows up in Brotherhood, I guess. He should be with Riza... lol!

Roy's red scarf doesn't looks so bad... I had always assumed it was white.. or maybe a cream color! That would be nice.

...cause I have a STRONG feeling that, if that whole 'Riza's death theory' is to become true, it's going to happen next month, on chapter 99.


OMG! Me too!

I dunno how it happens, but every time I wonder if there is going to be Roy and Riza in the next chapter, I get feelings. Like, if they are not in it, I won't feel anything. If they are, I feel all tingly in my stomach and excited. Sometimes, I'll get a little tingly like for this month and I think, 'They'll be in it a little bit.' and I was right. And back in 94, I was super-tingly all the time and I thought, 'There will definitely be Roy and Riza in this chapter, and a lot of them!' and since then I've never been wrong.

For this month, I'm sensing DEFINITE Roy and Riza, and something big happening. I just hope it's not Riza's death!

BTW, if you think I sound stupid, I feel sorry I wasn't able to say something about this three months ago to prove you wrong.

Also, Chapter 99/100 (the aftermath, probably, the death probably being a cliffhanger) would be the absolute SADDEST manga chapters EVER.

My opinion on translations: Just because one is more loose with the language does not mean that, at the core, the same thing is not being said. Just as we've all been saying, "my" or "the" makes no difference in that Riza's getting the credit. I also linked the translations of both Tombow and HisshouBuraiKen from chapter 95... I don't know how many pages ago, but I did. At the core, they're saying the same thing. Hisshou's is far more classically romantic, whereas Tombow's is not even remotely the first thing that comes to mind as romantic, even though it's about as literal as it gets. In the end, the two were saying basically the same thing: DON'T DO IT, and it made Roy finally see the light, and that's what matters.

Also, no matter what language you speak, the artwork makes it clear. (Someone else mentioned this, I think, but can I go on record as having seconded the notion?) I could read as many different translations as I wanted, and I'd still see the same expressions and get pretty much the same thing out of it. Roy getting Riza to lower the gun (never noticed that this was like Ed and Winry, but thanks to whoever pointed it out!), like you all have been saying, says everything.

On the game screencap: Yeah, the girl does kinda look familiar! And Roy looks pretty good!

EDIT: Turdaewen--You win a prize! Everything's falling into place now! (I hope Madam Christmas is in the game, too!)

OMG! I know who that girl is! XD It's Vanessa! ^^ She's one of Madame Christmas' girls! The one who asked if she had a chance with Roy after he 'lost Elizabeth'. O.O
Here. http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/62/42/
I knew she looked familiar... And she appears at the manga exactly in the part of the story this game takes place...
That was a really nice touch from the people who made the game... Now I'm wondering whether Madame Christmas is on this game, too!

Ha ha! That's what I wanted to check yesterday evening and actually didn't have the time to do that... I knew it was her XD And if you notice carefully, Roy in that manga page doesn't have the white scarf - so, they got that right too biggrin.gif
