I agree Sannom. Manga!Marcoh is definately more of a likeable character than his anime counterpart. The latter just moaned about how he deserved death because of his actions during the Ishbal Rebellion. But this manga version, well, he did moan a lot at first, but he seems to have pulled himself together. Just when Envy thought he had him dead to rights, Marcoh. Fought. Back.

But, Ling did warn Envy not to take humans too lightly. Did Envy listen? Nooooo. And look what happened. Now he looks like a king prawn, ready to be peeled and eaten.

I agree with a lot of people here, just read the chapter about an hour ago and I was surprised how rushed it felt, it sorta pisses me off because it reminds me of Lust's death in the anime. Sudden and not too awe-full. I hope Arakawa isn't getting tired of the story or something and just wants it done with sad.gif

Last thing we need is a plotholed to death ending like in the anime.

Also just thought of something, if I remember correctly the punishment for envy is to be dunk into freezing water. So it doesn't surprise me he was beaten in a land covered in "freezing water" aka snow.

First, some of us have already said that Envy is still alive. Second, If the chapter feels rushed that's because Arakawa wanted it that way. She's said before that once the brothers came to Fort Briggs things would be moving more quickly toward the conclusion. As for the series' ending, I'm sure she's had it in mind all along. It's her story, after all, and she knows what she's doing (unlike the anime staff, who rushed ahead too far and had to make up an ending of their own).

There are many threads in this story that still need to be woven together and it's pretty complex, so I'm pretty sure Arakawa has it all sorted out already, and just needs to put it down. The pace is certainly increasing, but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing.

Well she can want whatever way she wants, I respect her and everything, doesn't mean I'm going to like the rush myself blink.gif. And I said Envy was beaten, I said LUST DIED and it reminded me of her death. Never said Envy died at any point as far as I read. And if I did I think I wasn't paying attention because at the end I was aware from the fact he was still speaking that he is still alive... however he still got his [All hail lord Xenu] handed to him in this chapter.

edit: All hail lord Xenu? that's quite a censorship D:

A- I think brain-fetus!Envy is adorable. He's squirmy and pathetic, just like I'd imagine a lame brain-fetus version of Envy to be.

B- I get the feeling they're going to keep him around for some reason or another. Hostage, information, something like that. Xiao-Mei just isn't cutting it for the cute animal mascot.

haha. agreed.

I really liked this chapter, I don't think it felt rushed at all actually, I hate when fights take 4 chapters to end, I feel that's ridiculous and people get bored easily.
