First time FMA manga readers, please post your thoughts and discussions on chapter 69 here. smile.gif


For info on the "Reading Reference", go to page 26.


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

Spoiler Party starts on page 2!!



"...American Gladiators should be on right about now."

Last month on Desperate Alchemists, time for a clip show! Hohenheim questions his long-term health plan, and things do not improve as he blinks during the family photo-op. reaffirming his potential for a career in carpentry, Hohenheim realizes all too quickly what it took everyone else 67 chapters to figure out, and takes leave of Trisha for an extended camping trip.

Fast forwarding to the present, it is dark in your base, and your doods are likely to be eaten by a Grue. As Olivia fishes for Raven, he tries to convince her that all the cool kids are doing it. Informed of a disturbance in the force, the generals run off to see what happen, Fallman demonstrates the proper way to package your shrimp, and Ed meets the infamous Micheal Jackson. The situation at hand (lol) not improving, will Olivia find a way to deal with Pierrot le Raven? Why does Bradley keep his secret scotch bar so close to the phone? Will the fans ever realized that Winry isn't Lust?

We'll just have to find out.

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.

Nepharski, I love reading your witty introductions! Tombow remarked that this chapter is going to be entitled "The Other Side". Could this possibly be a referance to the Gate and our dear friend Truth? Anyways, I am defiently looking forward to the chapter.

Chiyo: I love your siggy!

For reference.

I think it's rather a reference to wikipedia, where Tombow would have gotten that info from. happy.gifU
(Correct me if I'm wrong, Tombow)

This chapter title just appeared there without no backup whatsoever from the usual foreshadowing pages (according to those at LJ who check them, at least)

So, in short, take that chapter title with a grain of salt. Or a whole bag.

EDIT: Awesome Kimbley!Jackson (or viceversa?) pic, Nepharski XD

I almost died laughing @ the summary. 8D

As for the "The Other Side", someone wrote it on wikipedia, and personally I think that's just a prank/random guess by people... I really don't think that would be the next chapter's title... (but hey, who knows... maybe Arakawa really pulled out something nice that fits that title) so we will have to wait for a few more days to find out if that's really the real title. ^^

I miss Riza, Gluttony, Lin!Greed, and Ranfun. D:

I loved that summary XDD I laughed a lot in the "Michael Jackson" part. When I saw him going out of the prison, with that hat, I almost heard "you've been hit by a smooth criminal".

But, apart for that, I think I must put what I expect from the next chapter. I really don't believe in this "The Other Side" from Wikipédia. If it were from another site, maybe I would, but I already had a heart attack when I saw the Tsunade (from Naruto), where they describe scenes that never happened (and it was so well written I almost believed XDD). But, anyway, let's wait for the chapter.

In the 69, I'm hoping that Arakawa satisfies the Ling's fan, and make him appear. Who knows. But my hopes aren't very high. She must show Raven and Armstrong, focus on them. But I don't know, I'm smelling an appearence of another Homunculus (aka. not Sloth), but I must be wrong (I always am). Hoho-senpai shouldn't appear, he must be put still more two chapters, only in chapter 71 we must see him again. But I think the chapter will end with Dr. Marcoh seeing what is wrong in the alchemy (by the way, Scar's Brother saw something wrong with Rentanjutsu or Renkinjutsu?). As for Winry, I have no clue, but I think the Führer will call her to eat apple pie.

One thing I noticed previously is that Winry did find out that Ed was heading North and Garfiel comments "oh my, he's going to die." We never see Winry's reaction to that but as an automail engineer she had to know Ed would be in trouble in that cold with automail. I wouldn't be surprise if the Fuhrer tells her Ed is in trouble and needs her help. She'd believe him of course since she already knows Ed's somewhere he shouldn't be with automail. She then shows up at Briggs to try and help him (putting her in potential danger with Sloth, Kimbley and Raven there) and also demonstrating quite clearly to Ed that "lookie, I have control over your friend's life, still want to mess with me?"

And, since it's from wiki, I'll take it with a spoonful of salt!! laugh.gif

Winry=/=Lust... I don't get what's everyone's obsession with human going homunculi. It was done with a certain Xing Prince if Arakawa keeps doing it stuffs going to get repetive and boring like the Pokemon series .___.


Great Summary :3, its lol-goodness!

I agree with Jedi28, it makes sense to lie and get Winry to scurry off there to prove a point.
Also I believe we might get a glimpse at Father's plan some more.... really Father needs to do the whole villain evil plot sililoque (or however it spelled) sometime D:
