As it seems my previous post with both "on-topic" and "off-topic" content was moved to another thread, I'm posting the "on-topic" content again:

On-Topic: regarding "FMA manga re-reding from beginning" project.
I think 2 chapters per week is good time wise. However, I think there should be flexibility with the schedule to allow weeks with one chapter discussions so that we are not splitting up two episode arcs into two separate weeks.

^ @Dark_Fishie - Yeah, I was posting "moved-posts note" when my Net connection went down. The connection is still bad and I can't do copy-pasting of destination thread where the moved post went, etc. at the moment, so I'll finish that post later. Sorry about that. ^^

And, along with it I lost my almost-done-composing reply post for the project related discussions when my Net connection went down.
I will re-write it later when my Net connection improves. smile.gif

When the re-reading will start?


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

It may take a while.

Maybe we can start it after the next two episodes are aired, so we don't have to worry about spoilers...??? And that way we can drag out the FMA experience just a little bit longer tongue.gif

First off, I apologize for my tardiness and the late late reply! So sorry.... sad.gif
I read the thread, and would like to thank you everyone for great inputs!!
I agree with others that it will be a good idea that we will basically proceed with 2 chapters per week, but also maintain the flexibility... that sounds reasonable to me also. ^^

As for the starting date, I agree with RoyxRizaFan's opinion above and considering that we'll have the final episode of FMA:Brotherhood (Japanese) on Sunday July 4 in Japan, followed by the official English subbed final episode of FMA:B being uploaded on Funimation website on Thursday, July 8, and hence I would like to suggest the starting date to be the week of July 11th. This will give us the first week of July (week of June 27) and week of July 4 to concentrate on the discussions for the final 2 episodes of FMA:Brotherhood anime series. smile.gif

I will address Vlyse's question later and explain how we may proceed with the discussions.
Also, Broken Chouchou and a few others, please wait for my PM. ^^

Thanks, Tombow. The 11th sounds good. Sorry for going off topic there.

^ No problem, Animeoldtimer! ^^ (Actually, that was a nice topic, and if you'd like to open a separate discussion thread for that, I think that night work. ^^)

I (seem to) remember a re-read project on LJ from ages ago (3 yr ago, maybe?) that is no longer active. Will anyone be offended if the LJ re-read project's info and data are used here, or is this re-read project going to be a pure, fresh project?

@Dark_Fishie - Yeah, I really wanted to join that one, but never got around to it. ^^
I think we'd like to do fresh, but anyone was participating in that LJ re-reading project, and wouldn't mind sharing info and inputs from that project, please do, and such sharing would be appreciated. happy.gif


QUOTE (Vlyse @ Jun 5 2010, 06:29 AM) *
Would each discussion be a spoiler party for all 108 chapters, or just the chapter being discussed at the time?

@Vlyse - Excellent question! ^^ And, here is my current idea on this.
"Read it from chapter 1" project will be open to all FMA fans, including those who have not read FMA manga yet and this is their first time reading it. However...

We'll have SEPARATE discussion threads for those who have already read later chapters, and for those who are reading it first time.

For those who are reading FMA manga first time, we'll bring up our regular Chapter discussion thread for that chapter. Yes, we'll dust up and bring up old chapter discussion threads XD (if any.. because in the early days in this forum we did not have discussion threads for every chapter. In those cases, we'll create a new chapter discussion thread for that chapter.)
For those who have read later chapters and participating in the re-reading of the chapter CAN post and join the regular chapter discussion thread for that chapter also, such as, "I love how Ed talks to Roy here..." etc., etc., but NO REVEALING of later chapter content such as "You see a couple in that train station? Wait till you get to chapter so and so..." or "Pay attention to what Ed says in page 27 because later on... " and so on. Making those type of SPOILING postings on regular chapter discussion threads will be absolutely prohibited. Period.

Besides that, each week, we'll open "Now I know! re-reading chapter xxx" (this thread title is tentative XD) discussion thread for each chapter we re-visit. Those who haven't read later chapters and willingly wish to be spoiled can read and join the discussions there also, but these threads are geared for those who have already read FMA at least once and hence, while we are discussing that week's chapter content on that thread it is all right to bring up related incidents etc. from the later chapter on that thread, as long as the main focus of the discussion is still the content of that chapter we are reading that week. The thread will be "Spoiler Party" as far as the use of Spoiler tags for the content for any chapters, meaning if you refer events from later chapters you don't have to use Spoiler tags, except for the content from chapter 108, the final chapter, and we ask you to use SPOILER TAGs if you bring up the content from chapter 108, at least for now.

We'll probably open separate such thread for each chapter we read, for example, if we read chapter 1 and chapter 2 in the first week, we will open "Now I know! re-reading chapter 1" discussion thread and "Now I know! re-reading chapter 2" discussion thread at the beginning of the project week. And everyone is free to post on these threads whole week, and later on also if anyone wishes. Eventually, tho, we might bunch/merge these discussion threads later... undecided on this yet. ^^

In addition, you CAN revisit the regular chapter discussion thread (as in, not "Now I know" threads) for later chapters and point out events in the earlier chapter that may be connected to the events in that later chapter, and if you wish, you can delve into further discussions on those later happening on those later chapter discussion thread as we "discover" new twist/hints/clues/additional info etc. in the earlier chapters.

EXAMPLE: let's say, if we are doing "Re-reading" for chapter 15, in addition to "Re-reading chapter 15" discussion thread, we can bring up what happened in chapter 15 such as, newly discovered "connection" to the later events, etc. on relevant regular chapter discussion threads for chapters 16 - 108, IF that event has any relevance to the content in that later chapter. But, you can NOT bring that event and post that on regular chapter discussion threads for chapters 1 - 14.

...

Sorry for the lengthy/wordy explanation. Hope this clears up some questions and not making everyone confused even more. xp

Any questions and/or if you have more thoughts and inputs, that would be appreciated. ^^

ETA: Anyone who has Viz' s official English volumes for vol 14, 15, 21, 22 (any part of these) please post here or PM me and let me know. ^^

Omg this really is the best idea ever! These forums make me so happy! I don't know anyone in my area who reads FMA so... It's kind of hard beacause I want to talk about every FMA thing, but I just can't ohmy.gif
Sorry for going off topic ... I needed to say this smile.gif

I do not know if we are still in need of official volumes, but I have volumes one and nineteen on hand. (Yeah, odd combo there. I will have to search my room and see if I can find some of the other English volumes that I bought.)

A re-reading is just what the doctor ordered now that the fabulous series is, regretfully, coming to and end! *sobs*
Hiromu Arakawa is right up there with the greatest writers of all time! Count me in for the re-reading session!
