First time FMA manga readers, please post your thoughts and discussions on chapter 68 here. smile.gif


For info on the "Reading Reference", go to page 10.

======================


Spoiler party starts on page 3~~


"As you can clearly see from the charts, sir, the aerial shape of our country is actually a giant...oh...I see."

In the wake of Sloth's refusal to ask for directions, Edward and Alphonse find themselves questioning the extent to which General Armstrong's S&M fantasies control her actions, and their current scenario still sadly better off than in the bulk of most fan fiction. Meanwhile, Miles and Kimbley sit down to a chat about ethnic differences, and General Raven's world tour brings Bradley's pediatrician for a house call. Back at the Batcave, the Elric brothers explain the details of the first 15 volumes of Hagane no Renkinjutsushi to General Armstrong (not an avid subscriber I take it), and Falman comes to the chilling conclusion that Amestris is, in fact, a giant jigsaw puzzle! Kimbley decides to drop in for the open house, Oliva tries her hand at dating sims, and the Elric Brothers and Buccaneer quickly learn that there's not much worth listening to on late night radio. Finally, we end with Marcoh and Mei each going into their respective Alchemic prowess descending from Xerxes, ("Alchemy was born in the kitchen." Pfft, right), and Hohenheim is investing into some new physical therapy.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Oh god... That's so... random... and funny xD

"Back at the Batcave..." oh dear...

LOL

I should probably quote the whole thing and worship you, Nepharski but that would be stupid biggrin.gif

I want more Hoho-papa dry.gif Two pages isn't enough after about a year of waiting.

Tho, I don't think Arakawa-sensei will fulfill my wish... *sigh*

... kay, I don't see that happening in any way, shape, or form ever...
But it would make for an interesting chapter.
*is just kidding and doesn't at all mean that seriously; knows Lust is dead and dead for good*

snapping your fingers,
or by drawing an array,
copy and paste this into your signature.

Hey, might as well try and see if it works, eh?... ^^;

I think he's gonna have an ENORMOUS part in the upcoming Chapter(s). I don't think the whole "poking self with fingers and spewing all over ground" thing will be unnoticed.


Yeah, I know that we'll probably have lots of Hoho-papa very soon, but I said I don't think we'll have too much about him in the next chapter^^

Well, in reality I try to act as the worst possible thing will happen next. Because if I act this way I:
1. Will be very happy if the worst doesn't happen.
2. Won't be disappointed if I hoped that the good thing'd happen and it's the worst one instead.

That is what I'm trying to do. Be sure that Hoho doesn't appear and then I'll be enormously happy when he actually does tongue.gif

It should be interesting to see what's up and to see if the current theory is going to be proven or altered.
