OMG, he's depriving you of oxygen, like in that Perfect Guide 2 explanation! ohmy.gif biggrin.gif

Also: Another comment for this chapter: I love that Arakawa gave us a more detailed view into Mustang's alchemy. I always wondered how the long-distance explosions worked. He has said something before about manipulating the concentrations of the gases in the air, but that didn't explain how he was able to light a fire without getting burned at his end.

Now I'm wondering what exactly from the dust he is combusting. If it were household dust, it would obviously be carbon since most of household dust is dead cells and stuff. He could also transmute the phosphorus from destroyed DNA in dead cells, since elemental phosphorus is crazy-combustible (P.S. add The 13th Element: The Sordid Tale of Murder, Fire, and Phosphorus by John Emsley to your reading lists, everyone).

Sand, though. Sand is mostly oxidized silicon. How the heck does that work for combustion? Unless he separates the silicon out of SiO2 and then recombusts it, which is what he did with the hydrogen in water when he burned Lust.

Oh my goodness, you guys, I'm totally going to calculate the enthalpy of silicon combustion when I get back to my pchem textbook. laugh.gif

Edit: Oh wait, it just occurred to me that sand is heavy. That's probably not what he used to funnel fire through the air in Ishval. Hehehe, nvm.

Like I said before, it was good to see Maria Ross again. smile.gif
I had wondered what was going to happen to her.

I like her character better in the manga, somehow she's more... likeable as a person.

YAY! Maria and Denny are back in the story.

And Denny has younger siblings. It doesn't seem like there's any parents though. Wonder if Denny is taking care of all of them. Hmmmm. he works nights, sleeps all day and it looks like his house is a mess. Hopefully Child Protection Services dont hear about that. tongue.gif

Ooh, the return of...well, everyone. This chapter could pretty much be summed up in one word for me: epic. Seeing everyone fighting and returning (Maria! Denny! Jean!) is amazing. I do especially like Riza's role. She didn't speak, but she didnt have to. Her sniper skills do all the talking for her.

And the red coat is back! I've missed seeing Ed wear that red coat. *sigh* This chapter was amazing.

With so many characters returning, I wonder if the end of the manga is now in sight.

I think it's because everyone's returning that we know the end is coming. Not here, but coming. I heard tell somewhere on one of these threads that Arakawa wants to keep the series relatively short. (If anyone has references to/sources on this one, contradictory or otherwise, please share them!)

My point is, we're at the beginning of the end. The homunculi are steadily shrinking in number, Mustang's put his plan into action, and everyone and their brother (mother, aunt, sister, cousin, nephew, grandma, 4th cousin thrice removed, goldfish, etc.) is coming back. The first clue is a lead-in, the second clue is a main reference point, and all the characters seem to show up in the end, if certain recent teen novels are any indication.

It won't be over in five chapters. Maybe not ten, but judging by the amount of content in each chapter, it's a slight possibility. But, as much as things are winding up, they're winding down, too.

^I think you guys are right when you say that the end is quite near, with all the characters showing up.
Maybe the end will be a nice round 100 chapters. tongue.gif Not too sure if that's achievable though.

Wow I didn't think people read that far into the story. I just saw the pretty fire and swooned.
