Yay! That was most definitely a fun chapter Olivia is a scaaaary lady- she's most definitely joined the ranks along with Izumi and Riza (and Winry to a lesser extent.) I'm really looking forward to seeing the translation- I could pick up some of the general dialogue, but the finer points tend to escape me. I saw that the journal is written in the language of Ishbal... so Marcoh can't read it. Plus, it will undoubtedly be encoded. I wonder if Marcoh will be able to discern the contents on his own, or if Ed and Al will need to help out...

I'm unclear on exactly why Olivia killed Raven... I mean, obviously he's a bastard, but more specifically. I'm also not sure why she decided to wait until after they'd put Sloth back in his hole- if she was going to kill him, she might as well have done it beforehand. Additionally, Raven seems to have upset Ed and Al- saying Olivia had joined with the homunculi, I think? I'm again not sure if they were 'faking' surprise or if he had lied to them and made them think Olivia had actually turned traitor. This should be a great chapter to see translated! Unfortunately, we may not get a scanlation within the next few days as Umeko's livejournal mentioned that she has some commitments... but the translation should be out soon enough, and that'll be wonderful.

(Aside- AA, wondered who you were for a minute- I *highly* approve of Shaoran-kun!)

Winry looks adorable; it's good to see her back.

AND THE ROY FANGIRLS REJOICE!

[Hey, Tombow wanted me to repost, so nyeah.]

If Sloth's back after a few chapters, it makes me wonder when Greed!Ling will be seen again, and I know I'm not the only one wondering that. I digress though, pwnsome chapter, and I shall be eagerly awaiting the translations.

One last thing -- I now know that I don't ever want to piss Olivia off. Ever.

Thank you so much for the summary of chapter sixty-nine Tombow. I must say that is was rather nice to see Roy once again. (It appears that he has another lady friend yet again.) However, I am rather confused regarding Olivia's current intentions and why she murdered Raven. Kimbley escorting Winry to meet Alphonse and Edward seems rather shady; I have to admit that I am rather worried for her well-being. I have a feeling that something is definetly brewing and will soon come to the surface.

Oh yea Tombow, you might want to fix the "Chapter" typo in the topic. ^^;

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v317/Alp...aren12_0122.jpg

and here is the page that backs up what I said about "Winry's promise to Al that she would get him polish oil." on Post #2.

Top left panel.
Winry: This time I will get you nice polishing oil, Al.
Al. Okay.

and it's from volume 12, chapter 48.

Man, that page took me 30 minutes to found cuz nepharski doubted that Winry said it.

Because there's Kimbley there too. And he must not know what's going on.
Apparently she has everything planned now, so it seems at that point she could afford to "discharge some tension" happy.gifU

But this chapter felt like the previous one to me... We're being hinted at many things but none of them doesn't quite come yet. The story barely advances. The fact they both end with basically the same cliffhanger for the reader (OMG, Winry's in DANGER!!!111one) should illustrate what I mean.
Hmmm... It's as if I were on the first ramp of a rollercoaster that keeps going up and up and up... Of course, this means that if done well the going down afterwards can be... uh... grand, epic (and I still believe it will be). But it also has a higher risk of becoming frustrating.
Or, come to think of it, like when you're about to sneeze but end up not. That's the sensation both last chapter's and this one's endings left me.

Dunno how to express it better.

I'm glad Raven's obsession fired back at him, though. In the end, as Armstrong put it in the last chapter, "he was just an idiot". Kimbley's the real deal here.

Oh, and another Pride mention (when, oh, when... T_T) and another Mobuta sighting to the list (third panel of Mustang's scene).

OMG ROY'S BACKK!!!! It's about time! But I really want to know what's happening to Riza and her new post.
I also gotta add that Olivier is the coolest female character alive, along with Hawkeye. I'm happy she killed that disgusting pervert.
I've been noticing that Arakawa really like strong female characters and always gives them major roles. That's cool. Girl power!! laugh.gif

I agree. This chapter was much like the previous one. I felt disapointed, waiting something big, then comes this. It is frustrating. Altough, I can't say for sure, because I don't know what they are saying. But, by the looks of it, this chapter only started showing the things, but again didn't show nothing conclusive. It is sad, but, this chapter also had some surprises. Olivia killing Raven, for an example, wasn't expected. I though he'd stay for more time in the series, but Arakawa decided to cut him off. It is good, I like to see character dying, makes the story different, it is surprising. Again, humor comes back with Ed and Al. And Winry is so cute! I just wanted to know what Kimbley said at the end of the chapter. And about that alchemy, I think we will not see the conclusion of that for a very long time. I'm hoping the Ishbarian guy whose name I forgot discovers about Xiao-Mei and relates to Armstrong that, in turn, tells the brother, and the go to learn about alchemy. But I only want to see what Kimbley will do when he finds out about Raven's death ;D

@Brittdvorak - Someone usually posts the chapters in a seperate thread, or we go to a scantilation site [such as ZOMGFTA] for RAWs and translations. As for how we know the exact date is coming out, I'm not too sure on that one, though some LiveJournal communities have info on it.

And, I don't know when chapter 70 is coming out, but chapter 69 just came out today, so we have that to enjoy right now.


EDIT: Okay, so the date of the next chapter is on the last few pages of the chapter. Shows how mucn I pay attention. Lawl.
