Buccaneer. The pairing shall be called Oliveer, her names got to be first, because we all know she'd be the more dominant one.



Yeah.... but.....
Okay, you're probably right.
They did seem pretty close during their chat (after Buccaneer and the crew got out of the tunnel).
Very Izumi/Sig though.... not that that's bad at all!

Even if she may not become Fuhrer, I think Arakawa's definitely gearing us up for a battle between Bradley and Olivier. What a nice little sword fight it'll be.

Couple things:

1) Arakawa did have some say on the ending of the anime -- she insisted that it ended DIFFERENTLY than her plans for the manga. So, assuming the manga will end at all the same way is probably a mistake. That being said, I do think it's possible a democracy will replace Wrath without either Mustang or Armstrong as an intermediary.

2) It seems like Mustang wants to be Fuhrer out of duty to help the country, rather than a desire for the post itself. He was planning on turning the country into a democracy (so he'd no longer be Fuhrer) and facing persicution for his crimes. With Ed's wish that Mustang and Hawkeye could just live their lives, maybe Arakawa will spare them from having to complete thier plan. So, Armstrong as Fuhrer might actually be really good for Mustang.

3) The only problem with this, is I'm not sure Armstrong would work towards democracy (though we don't really know her well enough at this point). If she intended to maintain the power structure, I think Mustang would fight her.

Yeah. I SERIOUSLY doubt she'd turn it into a democracy....

Oooo, I just thought. Maybe if Armstrong becomes Fuhrer, then a fight between Armstrong and Mustang, Mustang wins, turns country into a democracy and then faces persecution for his crimes...

I'm still of the sad belief that it is very possible that Roy will have to face the death penalty at the end of the manga. sad.gif

Hey, having the military overturned runs the huge risk of getting into the other extreme - in the exagerrated desire for justice, the State Alchemists could end up as scape goats for the long reign of terror. We saw how many people in the country felt for State Alchemists, there's a chance there will be a huge trial for the Ishbal matter, employed by a faction of ambitious parazites of the former system, who now wish...ok, I know, this is just my own political speculation biggrin.gif My point is that Roy would be pretty vulnerable if the system fell anyway.

What makes me wonder is how come Armostrong didn't make the high board seat in the first place. She's a tough and brilliant general, an outstanding leader, a powerful and ambitious personality, and come from an influential family on top of that - so what the heck is she doing in far-away Briggs!? She takes her job seriously, but my feeling is that she may have been pressured at first to take it. Maybe because she's a woman? We haven't seen many high ranking women in the millitary except for her - could the generals have feared her so much so as to send her to freeze her a** off in Briggs, in the hope that she'd break down from the cold and the Drachmans? Could be... but remember how Miles said that in Briggs everybody has a secret. What's Armstrong's? What kind of mistake could she have made to compromise her carreer so badly?

I think they know she's aiming for the top, which is probably one reason she was sent away, like Anomia said, in hopes that she'd break down from the cold and Drachmans.

Her secret...looks like we do have a lot more to learn about her.

Argh, but then we'd have another Hughes case. Roy and Riza get married, have a baby Roy dies in the line of duty leaving Riza husbandless with a child. Honestly, I can't see Roy dying in the manga, but I could be really wrong. You just never know what Arakawa has up her sleeve.
Also I could totally see Armstrong being set up for future Fuhrer here.

My opinion? Armstrong got sent away to Briggs for the same reason Grumman was stationed in the East-- they showed no interest in Raven's "immortal army" and therefore were a threat to the plans that were afoot in Central. They couldn't be kicked out of the military, but they could at least be stationed far away where they wouldn't have as much influence over the upper-brass.

But she JUST found about the "immortal army", right? And it was probably at least 10 years ago that she was stationed at Briggs, maybe close to twenty. At least that's how it sounded when she mentioned that crazy woman (Izumi)...

My bet is it was something that happened a while ago. I really hope we find out what that may be, if there even is anything...

She did *something* to piss off the upper brass. At some point...

There was some sort of plan she didn't go along with, which lead them to believe that she wasn't part of their 'circle' and would best be stationed far from Central--- where she wouldn't have as much influence.

I hope to see her, too. She's got to know what's going on if Mustang's gang is using the flower lady to pass messages.
