Page-by-page views of these 30 pages of Raw chapter are posted on page 2 of this thread. (Kindly provided by Qashqai.)
Tombow's quick translation of these 30 pages is posted on page 2. CAUTION: It is NOT covered with Spoiler tags.

And, the following is the spoiler summary of chapter 103:

QUOTE
Ed wonders if the homunculus are able to "force" Mustang to open the gate, why didn't they simply use that method to gather the sacrifices they needed.
He also says how it's not fair for "the truth" to penalize someone who didn't initiate human transmutation on his/her own will.
Only those who did it by their own initiative, such as Al, Ed, and Izumi, should be penalized for the sin.
Both of these points were frequently brought up among fan discussions in the past few months.

Mei declares Father to be her target and tackles him alone, and Al & Ed doubleteam Pride.

Meanwhile Scar vs Wrath is going pretty even.
Wrath manages to slice up Scar a few times, but Scar also manages to destroy one of Wrath's blades.
Wrath uses the broken blade and stabs through Scar's arm, and it seems he cornered Scar....

But then Scar reveals his hidden trump card to turn the tables!
His other arm now has inscriptions on it too... inscription for reconstruction. Newly added after studying his brother's research book.
He used alchemy to create stone thorns much like how Ed and Al does when they fight, catching Wrath off guard and damaging him.

Thank you, everyone!!! biggrin.gif

Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

Seems that Scar did finally get over his issues with alchemy. (I wonder if Mei had to do something with that...)

As for Ed's speech, it demonstrates either: a) that Arakawa lurks FMA fandom forums; b) she had thought it all along and now looks at us fans the same way Father looks at humans (well, maybe not that much, just as Ed would look at regular alchemists tongue.gif). Or even better: both. XD

Yes, yes, before someone posts and asks... I will go ahead and post the very quick translation of the posted page: biggrin.gif

(As usual, reminder that this is a VERY quick translation, and the real translation would be likely to change once we get to read the full chapter... )

Click to see the last page of this chapter with Scar and Wrath

(Quick translations below)
Scar: "I'd pondered for a long time, about what 'I' can do [to help (I guess... ^^)]" "And, finally I reached to this."
------------------------------
Scar: "This is what I recieived from my brother's study note," "The Translmutation Circle for 'reconstruction'."
Caption: Deconstruction and Reconstruction, now he has both powers among his both arms!!

I think this is not the entire chapter, actually, cause pages 2 and 3 are numbered as 15 and 16 of Shounen GanGan (in the image), then, page 6 is numbered as page 24.

So, either they have 6 pages of advertisement inside the chapter, or they skipped pages. XD

Ahhh! Now it makes sense. I thought it was quite a stupid move of Mei to tackle Father alone while the brothers were to finish off a worn out Pride... BUT, who else can fight, no, even scratch Father if not Mei? Man, I feel so dumb for not realizing that before.

Besides, now that I think about it, it's better to send the cavalry at once against that monster. It's a good tactic maneuver to wipe out the minor hindrances when fighting a powerful enemy at the same time. (Too much Japanese RPGs, I know).

Some quick photos, eh? No wonder the raw came out so soon. sleep.gifU

I would say "B" because Arakawa is just awesome like that. I am not biased in the least. smile.gif

But either way I doubt she goes to English forums. Who knows if she goes to Japanese ones and what they were saying about the chapter. But yeah I do think Arakawa thinks things through more than fans realize. Considering how sometimes even the smallest plot points come back later and can have major impact on things.
