There was simply no way I'd be able to avoid looking at the images.

I already know I'm going to be satisfied, even with the out of sync, out of order, jumble of images currently.

QUOTE (Irena @ Jun 7 2010, 08:34 AM) *
^ Don't give up yet!

Personally, I'm content with the ending, although I can kinda see why people don't like it, what with the Harry Potter-esque photos and all (at least nobody has a son named Albus Severus, right?)

Arakawa tends to balance things out; I guess she's making up for all of the really sad stuff throughout the series by giving us a nice big dose of happy at the end - plus she has to thwart as least some of the fanficcers xD

It seems to end on a hopeful note, but it looks like everybody still has some work to do.


LOL, I was about to post something very similar about Harry Potter right before I read your comment! XD I was even going to comment on Albus and/or Lily (makes me wonder if Ed and Winry have a Maes or Trisha... it would be slightly fanfic-esque and predictable, but also, again, like Harry Potter...). Well, better a Harry Potter ending than a Lost ending, at least for me! Heck, I already got one Lost ending this month, I don't need a second one. O_o

I also agree with the "equivalence" of the ending. If there are people out there who think it's too happy, well, I say keep in the mind the story as a whole. Plenty of terrible things happened and a lot of characters died. The Elrics and the Rockbells are still parentless (even if the Elrics got to make up with their dad). Gracia is still a widow and Elicia will grow up without a father. Ed and Winry's kids won't have any grandparents (well, one great-grandparent... but she can't last too much longer, huh? tongue.gif ). Fuu and Buccaneer died. Mrs. Bradley lost a husband. Ed still has his scars (and automail leg?). Ed can't use alchemy (or at least clappy alchemy, so it seems). I could go on...

If you try to say it's an "unrealistic" ending, that makes no sense to me. Look at "real" life. Very few people have suffered the way these characters have. How realistic is it that they NEVER get anything happy in their lives? After all, people move on, they grow up, they get married (hopefully to the right person) and have kids. That's life. It's not like the future pics are from the day after the battle; they clearly take place several years down the road.

Oh, and my comments on the latest pages! biggrin.gif We get to see Ed cry, after all! And well done, I might add - he's really letting it out, as per the song. wink.gif But then, in a very Ed-like fashion, he only lets it last for one panel and then toughs it up again, lol. happy.gif But huh, I expected to maybe see him cry over Hohenheim's death, but Hoho is not yet dead in this scene... hmm.

And we get both the trio group hug AND a separate EdWin hug. The EdWin train scene as a whole seems a bit like a reversal of the first EdWin train scene we got back in chapter 48. What makes it even more satisfying to me is that thick-headed Edward seems to be the one initiating the hug. He started out predictably red-faced and stammering, but by the time he got around to actually hugging her, it was pretty smooth. happy.gif I can tell some of what they're saying (calling each other idiots again, Ed thanking Winry), but not enough. Gah, I can hardly wait for a translation! Does any of it amount to a confession?! XD

EDWIN HUG! That is amazing! I need this chapter to be translated now! (No rush translators that's just my excitement, thanks SO much for doing everything you do). Plus now I can't wait to see this all animated.

I'm getting so excited for this chapter. But this whole thing is so bittersweet, because it's finally the end. It's extra hard for me right now too, because I just graduated yesterday, and now this is happening! It's a happy time but a weird one as well.

But now that my OTP is taken care of, I'm really curious as to what happens to Roy and/or Riza.

All right, my Net connection is slow/on/off, but give me about 20 minutes or so of head start, and then hopefully I can start posting translations of some of the posted pages. ^^

Meantime, please be kind and avoid making off-topic postings and also not to post any chapter 108 content on any other threads in the forums except on those chapter 108 designated threads. If you see other members posting chapter 108 content on other threads, please make a report by posting on The Forum Mod Station thread (please try to AVOID using "report this post to Moderator" button) and then we'll take care of that as soon as possible. ^^

WOW!! It's been over 5 years of me following this manga! I am so happy with the ending so far!!!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif Thanks to everyone who has brought the manga, translations, and scanlations to us! Thanks to Tombow and Chiyo for working so hard as moderators I'm sure it's been a challenge lately. biggrin.gif
Loved the EdWin hugs! Can't wait to see what is being said.
biggrin.gif
A few comments on the last page:

Yoki runs away with the Chimera's and joins the circus? That's funny! Scar seems to be with Miles and is sporting a ponytail? Ed and Winry with kids and Al and Mei together is so sweet! Havoc's rehab made me smile.

I want to know about Roy and Riza too!! sadangel.gif
