Thank you for sharing the images with us Animeoldtimer. Ed looks like he has certainly matured based off the second image; he really has some serious abs of steel there. (LOL, I think this might be Arakawa's way of appeasing her female fans of Ed.) Regardless, there is an odd sort of understated beauty in the second image.

Thanks for the image!

Wow.
Sexy Ed is sexy. 8D

He really has matured in the second picture from the first. In fact, he looks a bit older, especially around the face.

And his hair is LOVE. :'D

EDIT: Anybody notice the picture of Ed at the bottom of the cover? He has his winter hood up, and it looks like he's holding Al's armor head. I can't wait to see a larger image of it; it looks cute. xD

I think I just melted a little, no I really did. Wow she is really pushing the mature Ed image now, considering he could pass for his father at that age. There is something almost unnerving about the fact he has turned away from the viewer

I agree with the unnerving bit.
It's almost like Arakawa is trying to foreshadow something.

*sigh* I'm probably thinking too hard about it; it probably doesn't mean anything. xD ;.;

I love the way the automail contrasts starkly with the softer look of the skin and hair.

And I agree, it's slightly unsettling that he is not facing us. Perhaps it represents the fact that he might be going through the darkest part of his story or some other representation of grief or something. Or he is turning away from the world of alchemy he used to love out of disgust or shame.

Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. tongue.gif

Either way, it's an amazing picture.

WOW. O_O Ed looks so grown-up and mature! I love how Arakawa shaded his skin and the automail... wow...

It is unnerving... I really think Arakawa is foreshadowing something. I'm not sure what, but something... I think this chapter is going to be very significant, and the beginning to something very significant (perhaps a new arc?).

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Ed looks really, really skinny? You can see his ribs very clearly... does this mean he can't get proper food wherever he is, or that Al's body has really taken a toll on his body?

Hmm...We can see his ribs but I personally dont think he looks too unhealthy.

He does look very hott though:)

I love everyone's speculation about a new dark twist being forshadowed.

I cannot wait!

Life's short, so love the ones you got
cuase you might get run over, or you might just get...shot.
Never had not static I just get it off my... chest.
Neve had to battle with my bullet proof...vest.
Take a small example take a tidbit from meeee, take all your money give it all to charity.
Love is what I got It's within my reach
And this is sublime's sound straight from long beach
Punk back to you,You finally get what you deserve.
You try to test out,You'll probably get served.
Love's what i got, dont start a riot
you'll feel it when the dance gets hot.

Love isss... its what I got
(just remember that)

I dont cry when my dog runs away, I dont get angry at the bills I have to pay
I dont get angry when my smokes pot, hits the bottle and goes back to the rocks
f!#$ and fighting it's all the same, playing with louie's dog's the only way to stay sane

Havanese - I noticed that, too. I've seen in a few other pictures as well. If this picture is representing him after he was impaled, you have to wonder how much of toll that and Al's body have taken on him. Makes me anxious...

And, is it just me, or does Ed's automail look different? It looks... newerand, in a way, futuristic. Looks like he cleaned it while sidelined.

How many years can I pretend

No more sitting in this place
Hoping you might see it my way
Cause I don't think you ever understood
That what I'm looking for are the answers
To why these questions never go away

I've been changin' but you'll never see me now
I'm so far away
Now I'm blaming you for everything

*eyes pop out of head*

Haha, that Ed picture gave me the chills. I haven't had an Edward fangirling moment in a long time...

Arakawa-sensei's skills seem to be improving a bit! And the colors are gorgeous as usual.

Arakawa-sensei, please don't squash my last chance at EdWin! The anime ruined it!

I am kind of worried that he isn't facing us, though... I hope something bad isn't going to happen. This has me worried. D:

Edit - the pictures:

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

yeah um hi XD

ok.. first thing is first... BWA SUPER SEXAY! (my baby is growing up D=)

2nd... i gives be a really bad feeling about the chapter... like,,, im reading this understanding comic book right now and it explains comic artists techniques and things that they do to imply something... i could help but notice that this picture is 1. tilted on a angle 2. of ed looking down, and 3. his face was hidden. please, PLEASE, dont hold me to this but in the book it says that those signs are often used for 'a last look'.... like i said, please dont hold me to that cause i dont know weather im right or wrong... but please let me be wrong DX
