This chapter is too awesome for words *___*

Is it just me or did this chapter finally got back the "hagaren-feel"?
Not only the drawing style... (for previous chapters I always felt the drawings were rather "juushin enbu-ish", while I don't feel it for this chapter)... but omg, the CRACK.
The awesome crack.
Awesome kidnapping. Awesome doctors. Awesome couple (that has appeared for numerous times). Ed's awesome (?) tastes. Hoho-papa and Al's awesome conversation. Al's awesome loincloth that's like Doraemon's pocket XDDDD
Poor Mr. Chimera ;-; and totally, WELCOME BACK GREED. WE MISS YOU. Welcome back, Lin, as well. It's sooo-Lin, to poke Ed right away for food XD I totally love the fight between Wrath and Greed *_* Haven't felt this hot-blooded in a while... I think this fight is even more awesome than Envy x Dr. Marcoh (well this fight is awesome too! Of course).

and of course... CONGRATS TO FMA FOR GETTING 42 PAGES THIS CHAPTER!

PS. Roy, where the hell are you?

I think Pride will probably get to the hideout where Ed and Lin are... man, the part where Ed was like "AL IS GONNA BE HERE, TOTALLY!" and then Al isn't here... argh, this sure breaks the heart of elricest fangirls XD

I am loving this chapter, totally. =w= *grabs a McD's burger*

QFT'd!
As usually, relying on aa's words for me humble opinion.... happy.gifU

*ehem*

Eeh... got nothing to add for the moment, you just said it all, darnit. XD
Oh yes, one thing: Totally lol'd at the first failure of the Elric Telepathy after quite some time. XD
I think we all expected (except for those of you impacients, who spoiled yourselves such an awesome chapter beforehand) him going to Reole after so many cases of brotherly synchronized thinking lately, but then... FAIL! T'was a good one. XD

Aaand let me pay my respects and give my goodbyes to Bido. ( u_u)n
He did play his expected role (I knew he would be important TuT ) and "brought back" his old master (and Ling with him XD ), but he had to pay it with his life too.
Why did all the Devil's Nest chimeras have to die? sad.gif

Well, there goes one for the Volume 20 (21? lost the count) spine.

Some more curious thoughts...
- Ed's taste keeps getting worse and worse.
- Poor "anonymous rich couple", losing yet another car... XD
- Oh, and that was yet another fast trip too, back to Central in a few pages worth. sleep.gif

PS: Oh, yes, and... what's with Ed cosplaying as Winry in the cover? XDDD

EDIT: Several retouches for better readableness!

I DID NOT SEE IT. *puts it on ignore*

*fangirls w/ you* LIN LIN LIN LIN LIN LIN LIN LIN LIN */fangirls*

And yeah totally, I am glad I didn't bother with reading the FMA spoilers this time except for looking at the cover anbd refreshing my P2P program and mangahelper for the complete raws *_* and that's cuz I have recently been addicted to Nabari no Ou so I didn't bother to spoil fma for myself lol This is totally one of those chaps that would've ruined the fun by spoiling one-self before hand. <3

My nose went a little sour at Greed's flashback scene ;_;
and got so creeped out when the "camera" was focusing on Pride @_____@;; the creepiest fakeshota in manga history...

Oh, another thing... Ed appeared to have grown taller in the previous chapters, right? Is it just me, or did he looked tinier in this chapter...? *gets automail-ed for saying tiny* I am totally not complaining. Tinier Ed looks a lot more natural to me than the taller/bulkier looking Ed.

Whoaa, thank you Cherry Blossom Alchemist and Tombow, that's really great to finally have the raw and to be able to read what's going on... tongue.gif

I can't believe Ed thinks that the new car is "cool", he really doesn't have any artistic sense, hurgh... wacko.gif
But seeing him again in action is great. He seems to love his bread, and his face while he was a "hostage" was priceless....Hoo, and it seems that he will stay a while like he is : hair not brained, with no red coat...I can't complain ^^.

Lin is back !!! But poor Bido....and the fight between greed and wrath was awesome, go go go greed/lin !!! tongue.gif

And the elric connection didn't work...lol. Or Eward wasn't really thinking of Al but of Lin, and that will be strange..lol. But it's great to see them together, I can't wait for the next chapter !!!

Ho, and concerning the birthday thing, personally, I thought that Ed was already 16. I mean, it's been a while since winry told him that he was going to be sixteen...but I can be wrong, I won't deny that it could be great to have Ed remembering his birthday during a big fight, or better, if it's Hohenheim who thinks about it when they meet again....I can totally imagine the scene ^^.

I'm going to call this the 'dirty looks' chapter, Ed, Hoho and Greed (he count) all give that whole 'filthy look' feel. Though as AA put it, it gives it that classic Hagaren feel.

Heeee, no complaints from me this time round; even I thought that this was an awesome chapter! ^^

I actually almost cried after Bido was murdered ;_; and the memories of all the Devil's Nest chimera's got to me too...it may of only been in memories, but it was great to see those guys again...until we see that infamous 'river of blood' that Bradley/ Wrath created back in the Devil's Nest massacre chapter. >.<`

It's good to see Ling back to normal ( well for the moment) too...that last page with him doing that nervous smile of his is just adorable. happy.gif

Thanks for the raw!!! ^^

For my translation of chapter 82, please go to this page. ^^

Lots of action scenes in this chapter!!
The scene with Bido is so sad!! When he died he had tears in his eyes!! Poor thing!!

Ed is back to being good old Ed, including his sensitivity to "S" word. XDD
But, I will probably never buy a car designed by him!! laugh.gif
Post more of my thoughts later, but overall very satisying chapter!!


HisshouBuraiKen, thanks for your translation! I like having your company, but as I edited my translation that was posted right above your post before I moved it, I almost hit the edit button on your translation. XD So, I moved mine away before I absent-mindedly do anything to your translation by accident. XD

Someone asked me why I use "Lin" instead of "Ling." My answer is because that's what's written in the character intro page at the start of every Japanese tankobon. It's been retconned. I don't care about the bracelet in chapter 35 smile.gif

Page 1:
Title: Chapter 82 - Soul's Family

Page 2:
Lion: Hurry, hurry!

Ape: Thanks a million, Doc.
Ed: Yeah, thanks.
Doc: Save it, just get outta here!
Text: Ed's healed, and he's already stirring things up!

Ed: So they're looking for a guy in a red coat with a ponytail, huh...
Guess I'll stick with these clothes for a while.
SFX: Munch munch

SoldierS: Freeze!
SFX: Click click

Lion: Hehehe, we couldn't let such a great hostage get away!
SFX: Ghehahaha!

Ape: Now YOU drop YOUR guns!

SFX: Dash!
Soldiers: Ah!
Ape: Haha!

Page 4:
Soldiers: Stop!

Around back!

Doc/Wife: Oh mister soldier, thank goodness!
We were so scared!
There was nothing we could do, they were so horrible to us!

Don't leave us!
SoldieR: Let go, damn it!
Doc: We were REALLY REALLY scared!
SFX: Cling

Ape: Those two sure catch on quick...

SFX: Slam

Lion: Get us some wheels.
Ape: On it.
SFX: BANG

Preppie: Nice, eh honey? It's brand new, specially made for driving up here!
Girl: It's SO cool! Let's take it for a spin!

Ape: Get away from the car, NOW!
SFX: Chachick
Preppie: O-Okay!

SFX: Dunkadunkadunka

Page 6:
Soldiers: The fugitives have stolen a civilian car and are moving south!
The car is an EZO-16!
Small bubbles: EZO-16?
That's the latest status symbol for the rich people.

After them!

Ed: ...., they're on our tail!
SFX: VROOOM

Ed: You drive like an old woman, Donkey Kong!
Ape: Don't call me that!
They're used to driving in snow, of course they're driving better!

Ed: Take that right!
Ape: Huh?
Ed: Get on that street!

Ape: Why?!
Ed: Just DO IT!

Page 7:
Ed: Do a U-Turn the second we're past the corner!

Soldier: Where'd they go?
They DID turn down here...didn't they?
Berzerker car SFX: Vrumvrumvrumvrumvrumv
Other car SFX: Bruummmmmmmmm

Berzerker car text: YESSSSSSSSS
Soldiers: Step on it!
Don't lose 'em!
SFX: VROOOOOOOM

Ed: ...That was close.
Ape: Whew...

Lion: All right, transmute this car into something more practical.
Ed: Why? This look is totally badass!
Ape: Just do it.
PLEASE.
SFX: Brumbrumbrum

Ed: What the hell? You two have a problem with my design?
Ape: Yeah...too many to list.
SFX: Brumbrumbrummmmmmmm

Page 9:
Lion: Where to?
Ed: We need to figure out what's going on first...

I hope Al managed to find Winry and the others...
So we need to join up with Al.

Lion: Weren't you two staying at Briggs while you were up there?
Ed: Central's taken control of the fort, we can't go anywhere near it.

Where would Al go in this situation?
Think...
Think...

Hohenheim: ...And that's about it.

Page 10:
Hohenheim: Hello?
Al: Ack!

Hohenheim: Did you...understand everything?
Al: Ummm...
So you were a slave who became a Philosopher's Stone?

Hohehneim: Well...Yes.
Al: Ah...okay...

Hohehneim: ...you don't believe me.
Al: You leave us, I don't see you for over 10 years, and your story is so out there it's ridiculous. I'd have to be crazy to believe you.

Page 11:
Hohehnehim: ...I know...
SFX: Sigh...

Al: Oh well...

I guess that makes me crazy.
SFX: Sigh

As they say, "Nothing is impossible."

Hohenheim: You really process things quickly.
Al: Actually, if I had pants, I would've peed them by now.

Maybe...
Maybe I believe you because the story of my own body would sound just as wild.

So...
what does not being able to die feel like to you?

Hohenheim: What does it FEEL like? Uhh...I mean, this body comes in handy for a lot of things, but...

I can't take seeing my loved ones die any more.

Page 12:
Al: I...
I'm tired of being alone all night, every night.

I know what you're talking about, too.
Grandma Pinako had a picture of us all.
It was taken when I was just a baby, but you still look the same.

She said, "Hohenheim and I were drinking buddies back in the day."
And when someone her age says, "Back in the day," they don't mean 10 or 20 years.
Hohenheim: No...I guess not.

Pinako and I knew each other from...it must be 50, 60 years ago by now. She introduced me to Trisha...
Al: ...and you two got married?

Hohenheim: Oh, boy. I took one look at her and totally swooned.
Al: ..."Swooned?"
Small text: How can he say this stuff with such a straight face?

Hohenheim: ...Trisha died before me, too...

Page 13:
Al: Uhh...sssso...
If you're a Philosopher's Stone, that means your body isn't like a normal one, right?
Does that mean we're...ummm...I mean, are-

"Does that mean we're not human," is that what you want to ask?
Al: ...Yes.

Hohenheim: You're fine.
I've essentially been broken down and rebuilt as an entity merged with all the souls used to make the Stone...but the core, the part that's still ME, is human.

But the man...the THING you met in Central...

It's only wearing a shell that resembles me.

Al: Him...oh yeah!

Page 14:
Al: He's trying to do to this country what he did to Xerxes, right?
We've got to stop him!
Small text: PLEASE don't pull stuff out of your crotch...

Hohenheim: Wow, nice work. You've discovered a lot.
This is the inverted transumtation circle, correct?

Al: The first thing we have to do is destroy that tunnel. That's why-
Hohenheim: Don't even think about it. There's an extremely powerful Homunculus, "Pride," lying in wait down there.

Al: But-
If we don't do something SOON, they'll finish the circle!

Hohehneim: Actually, it may already be complete.
Al: Then why are you acting so calm?!

Hohenheim: "The Day" hasn't come yet.

Al: Eh-
So we should-
Hohenheim: Alphonse.

Page 15:
Hohenheim: Don't be so focused on what's at your feet. Look up.
There are things to be seen above you, too.

Al: Look up?

The sky?
The Sun God, Let?

He's waiting for "The Day" to come.

... This chapter was AWESOME! Thank you, Arakawa, for giving us 42 pages of utter WIN!

QUOTE(AA battery @ Apr 14 2008, 03:16 AM) *
Oh, another thing... Ed appeared to have grown taller in the previous chapters, right? Is it just me, or did he looked tinier in this chapter...? *gets automail-ed for saying tiny* I am totally not complaining. Tinier Ed looks a lot more natural to me than the taller/bulkier looking Ed.

You're absolutely right, I think Ed looked tinier than he has in a log time (or maybe he just looks tiny in comparison to the huge men). But, aw, he looked cuter than he has in a long time, too. I want Ed to be taller than Winry, but I missed seeing the "chibi" Ed that we've all become used to.

And oh, the CRACK in this chapter was amazing. Arakawa hasn't been including many funny moments recently, so it's great that she added some humor and brought back the old "FMA feel." I love Arakawa's sense of humor.

Poor Bido and Greed. I'm glad Ling returned back to normal, I never liked Greed!Ling much. I much prefer the original Ling with his ridiculous grin and antics. tongue.gif

Selim looks creepy... you'd think his mother would notice the weird look in his eyes, but I guess not. She's too blinded by her love, or maybe she's too oblivious to notice... or there could be something more going on. ohmy.gif (But probably not).

Thank you Cheery Blossom Alchemist, Causmicfire, Tombow and HisshouBuraiKen!

laugh.gif Poor Ed is always hanging around with giant people who make him look like a dwarf!

I just figured out that if you use [Ctrl]+G on CDisplay (the manga-viewing program that I'm guessing a lot of us use to see the .zip files), the raw doesn't look so light.

[Ctrl]+G turns gamma correction on/off. If you turn off gamma correction, you can kind of see the back of the scanned pages, but at least it's not so dang light!

Thank you Tombow and HisshouBuraiKen for your translations. I always read them both to try to get a better sense of what the manga is saying.

I love the hostage-taking, Ed's style, and Lin/Ling's return! YAY FMA!

The return of Ling! God, I love that guy.

I really enjoyed the whole Ling x Wrath interaction. It was cooooool.

And thanks to everyone that made it possible for us to read this.. It was really a great chapter. :0

Thanks for the translations Tombow and HisshouBuraiKen!

This chapter was awesome!

Greed inner turmoil was done wonderfully. I like that it brought back the themes of kinship, full force. I Wonder how hard it will be for Ling to keep control of his body.

Such a great chapter, Edo is back and it's oh so gooooood, we get some of our LING back, yayz! (Although Pride looks pissed, which makes me worried for our friend the garbage disposal), Papa Hoho loves Alphonse (and Al seemed so much older too), all is almost good in the world.

That's one of my favorite things about FMA, is how Arakawa ages the three "child" characters, i.e. Ed, Al and Winry. I finally bought my own copies of the books and have been re-reading them, and I'm amazed at how young they look, and how mature they've become - even Al, and it's hard to show maturity in a suit of armor. But I really feel like the three of them have grown a considerable amount since the beginning of the series, and I absolutely love it.

Now let's see, in the most recent chapters, we've caught up with Edo, Al, Papa Hoho, Ling, Envy, Mei Chan, Marcoh, Scar, Winry, Major General Armstrong, King Bradley, Father, even Rose......now who are we missing.......oh yeah, ROY AND RIZA.

I'm going through serious withdrawal here.

*crosses fingers in hopes that at least ONE of them appears in the next chapter*
