Interesting post, Sannom. I agree with your take on Scar 100%.

Depending on the manner in which Arakawa chooses to end her series, I could accept two possible resolutions of Scar's character:

1. The first would be his death while defending Winry. Although this could occur in any number of ways, perhaps the most fitting would be in a battle against Kimbley. It's not so much that I want Scar to get revenge - in fact, I would prefer if the battle unfolded in such a manner that Scar was forced to fight out of necessity resulting in Kimbley's accidental death or his demise at the hands of another character - but it would be a fitting resolution for Kimbley's character.

2. The second would be more in line with a 'happy' ending for Scar - that being his survival and participation in the rebuilding of Ishbal/Armestris.

Either ending would afford manga Scar's character a resolution beyond the endless cycle of violence of his former lifestyle begot. In my opinion, the theme of casting aside vengeance would be far better illustrated by Scar's death while defending Winry, but either conclusion would be appropriate. Only time and Arakawa-sensei will tell for sure. happy.gif

Yeah, this one would be cool too. But there is something about it that bugs me : Winry already said that she still considered him a human being, and I can't see her forgiving Scar. And Scar already did a good job of protecting her and his crew. So I don't know if seeing him save Winry is really that "important"...

A third ending could be that he surrenders and is judged for his crimes...

Personaly, I would like a happy ending, but one where Scar is still punished in a way. For this to happen, I think he would have to leave behind the effort for reconstruction and exile himself from his beloved land. This in order to avoid being arrested and sentenced for his crimes against State Alchemists.

I could actually see him go to Xing with May and work as her bodyguard/servant. This would still present him as someone whose morality and sense of self-sacrifice is not all "white", and it will be a kind of punishment for him to be away of his land while it's being reconstructed.

If this was to happen, somehow I could see a battle with Bradley. Because Wrath is the most likely character to bring Winry back into the fray.

Okay, so, sorry for bragging for such a small thing, and probably no one will care but... but...

But I have to take it out! >o<

Armstrong vs Sloth, I friggin' called it... More than 3 years ago! >o<

QUOTE (Sensenic @ Oct 14 2005, 10:42 AM) *
As for what he'll do in the future... yesterday while going back home it occured to me... Wrath and Father "took care" of Greed, Roy "took care" of Lust... Seems Envy will be Ed's "job" (well, not that much now, but still...), etc.
So, on the other hand, who put up a more than decent fight against the big muscle guy -somewhat- Scar and made him decide to retire? Who was the only one who could "confront" Sig Curtis in order to get to see Izumi -ehem sleep.gifU-? Who was the one who beat yet another "Big Guy" Roa and didn't kill him just because was such a good person? wink.gif See where I'm going?
And now... Given how much Arakawa sensei and her crew love Armstrong, that meaning he'll much probably get more stellar moments, and one could be "taking care" of an hommunculus... And which is the big-muscled hommunculus who looks like his main power might be "Ultimate Punch/Strength"?
SLOTH!

That's my bet: Armstrong will be the one to beat/kill Sloth.

Time will tell.

Garf...
With that taken out I feel a lot better.

What I most certainly didn't see coming was Sloth's power... laugh.gif
Another great coup d'effect!

Awesome chapter as usual.
This chapter was quite battle-shonenesque, but FMA is high-quality stuff even when being typical.

lets face it, it would be kind of mellow unless it was Scar who got to deal his revenge. I think he`ll either somehow survive that or he`ll use the philosophers stone to turn the tables again.


Well, Kimblee can't heal himself with the stone, that much we know.

And for Scar getting is revenge, I could see it not happening, and I actually don't want to see it happen. Before, I wanted Scar to beat that bastard for all he did to him and his family. But now, I'm not so sure about it. Scar has "matured" : he is no longer bent on revenge and revenge only. He has new objectives, new allies, things that are more important than his selfish revenge, especially when what he does and what he is now is most likely what his brother would have wanted him to do and "be". Scar is no longer obsessed by Kimblee. But the contrary isn't true : Kimblee is obsessed by Scar. Two times, Scar escaped him. One time, he nearly killed him. The other, he flee and humiliated Kimblee, even commenting how their positions were now the complete opposite of what they were the first time they met. And that is true even on the mental level : now Kimblee wants to catch and kill Scar, he doesn't want anyone else to do it. But Scar isn't that much interested in killing Kimblee anymore. So i don't want Scar's development to be wasted by a fight and talk of revenge against Kimblee. Nor do I want that Kimblee bastard to get what he wants. And I think that Arakawa doesn't want it either. I think she despises revenge.


Now, that was a nice one.
I also wanted Scar vs Kimbley to happen, but you certainly do have your point...

Either way, I don't think Kimbley's done with yet, though.

Is it wrong that one of the first things I noticed when Sloth grabbed Olivier was her breasts being crushed and pushed up? blush.gif

I'm so worried for what is going to happened to Olivier! I really don't want her to die!
I was really looking forward to see the fight between Father and Hohenheim, so I'm a bit disappointed for that.
And I kind of missed Ed.

Haha, I noticed that too. |D

This chapter is awesome. Great battle scenes.
And that is definitely gonna hurt, Kimbley. Good luck with that...

Spoilers I guess...

On last page that you see Sloth charging towards Armstrong/blood spraying upwards, you notice that that same sound effects seen on that picture pops up whenever the Major throws projectiles towards an enemy or punches the ground which pikes then shoot out afterward (seen in Chapter 7: when Armstrong is attacking Scar).

My guess is that Major Armstrong actually got Sloth with the pike, then him/his sister getting killed off by Sloth.

I think Kimblee is going to live through this one... I mean the last page, last pannel you see Heinkel isn't actually bitting into Kimblee (he hasn't made the final squeeze)... I hate thinking this way, but I think Heinkel might already be dead... his eyes are white too... no pupils
I could totally be wrong too... its just this feeling I have... to me it seems like something isn't right...

unsure.gif o man... chapter 93 will be interesting...
