I know many people are unhappy with the Roy ending, but I like how he's not a Fuhrer just yet - it gives the story a sense of movement and doesn't slap a sense of finality to it.

And let's be happy Ed doesn't have to return the 520 cenz, being unemployed and everything. If I could draw, I'd make a small strip of him washing dishes and changing nappies, with the caption: 'I am... a housewife.' The legacy continues smile.gif

How does he even have money to travel? I can so see him ending up broke and starving in a comedic way, like Hoho in Lior.

...and so, the story ends as it began...

The cycle of the great Philosophers from East and West begins again, as the sons of Hohenheim begin a new quest for the sake of mankind. A quest, not to nullify the horrors of alchemy with an equal trade, but a quest to move beyond the principle of an eye for an eye and to replace Equivalent Exchange with Unconditional Exchange.

What a fitting conclusion. I think I'm going to shed manly tears. laugh.gif

My thoughts:

-Ok..did anyone else cry when Hohenheim died in front of Trisha's grave??? Because I had a STREAM of tears rolling down my face.

-When Al felt his father's touch, that made me tear up a bit too.

-I wish there was a little more resolution for the Xingese. (I'm also a big fan of LingXLanFan....but I knew that wouldn't happen!)

-I am not a fan of Royai, (obviously) but I am VERY VERY annoyed with the lack of resolution for both characters individually. I feel like there are just too many unanswered questions for them!!! Riza's tattoo, Roy's sight, his role, his past, Roy's promise, ROY ROY ROY!!! I just wanted a little more ROY!!! **shakes fist**DAMN YOU ARAKAWA!!!

-SELIM....REALLY??? meh...

-I don't know how I feel about Ed giving up his ability to perform alchemy....I understand WHY it had to happen, but I guess deep inside I know that this is REALLY THE END, And because he lost his ability, Arakawa will not continue their story in any way shape or form.(I know I know...but a girl could hope, right??) It's like she left the story of the other characters open, but the main ones CLOSED FOR BUSINESS. sad.gif

-LOVED LOVED LOVED THE EDWIN!!!! Unlike many other people, I LOVE WINRY!!! I think she's just a great, sweet, and loving character. I love Ed X Winry, even though I'm not really a shipper of the pairing. Ed's "proposal" of sorts was just so special, and made me smile! biggrin.gif

-The final photo montage....well...I dunno how I feel about it. Basically, the photos brought closure only to Ed, Al, Hoho, and Ling. But Roy's photo.....*sigh*.....oh well....

In comparison to the first anime series, I gotta be honest. I prefer the way the first series ended over this one. Of course, I have my own personal reasons for it! haha...

However, what I loved about the manga was its broad cast of characters. Especially, Ling, Lan Fan, and Olivier. Those characters really made the whole manga series stand apart from the first anime for me.

I think I'll manage getting over the loss of FMA, by continuing my fanfiction. (of which people keep asking me to finish! lol)

I'm soooo going to miss it...



The last page:

"Thank you for reading all these years. Please look forward to Arakawa-sensei's new work."

"NEW WORK"....I can't even.....I.....****CRIES****

well, this is the end beautiful friends.

9 years...and now it's over sad.gif

EdxWin fanservice, EdxWin babies, happy.gif

I am, however, disappointed at how Hoho went away, I always thought he'd give himself up for someone and there would be an emotional outburst from Ed, but *shrug* Arakawa knows best.

As for the Royai, here's my feeling: their future is left to our imagination, and perhaps fanfiction will take over.

overall though...the message of the last page was clear and summed up the whole series, and is actually similar to a lyric sung by singer corey taylor

"The only way out is through the pain."

Guess I'll pop in for my once-a-blue-moon-epic-manga-chapter-sqee.. =]

I'm still in shock... Read the final chapter earlier today, and I'm still stunned. I don't think I've quite absorbed everything that's happened, so my input is mostly emotional.

A lot of things that were on the edge of my mind were said earlier in the thread, with a lot more expansion and eloquence on the topic(s), so I don't have much to add.

I wished that a little more time was spent on the epilogue part - another chapter, at least. I think the quick wrap-up is the reason why the ending seemed somewhat inconclusive. It went too fast and brushed by a lot of characters, and that's my main complaint.

I'm so glad, though, that Ms. Arakawa gave the manga a happy ending. It might not have tied up everything, but I don't know if we ever really expected it to... The Reuniting/Tears of Joy panel with our favorite Resembool Trio was enough for my sentimental heart. Really beautiful. I love the smile on Ed's face. I couldn't think of a better reunion between them... and Ed's proposal and his hug. Brilliant. So in-character, and the photo of the Elric family followed that up very nicely. It's nice to see them all grown up.

I know certain other things were left hanging intentionally, and I think that was a good, sensible move. With the Elrics, the ends were a lot neater to wrap up (as it only involved a small amount of people), thus a more conclusive ending. With Roy and Amestris, however... I like what Anomia Grey said about a sense of movement and not total finality. But it also reflects a sense of realism. It wouldn't have been possible for Central to recover so quickly, even after two years... A country through so much political turmoil and upheaval would certainly take longer than two years to get back on its feet and functioning normally.

So in that regard, Arakawa did the right thing. Although... I'm still not so sure how I feel about this new Selim. And I can't say much about the lack of a Roy-Fuhrer or Royai conclusion... although someone mentioned that Ed's and Winry's romantic relationship/non-relationship? developed over the course of the manga, whereas Roy and Riza have always been on the same page. So I guess I can accept that.

Right now, I'm still trying to process everything, but I feel at such a loss. I've only been in the FMA fandom for about four years, and it was almost the entire duration of my high school career (kinda weird it ended right after grad...), but damn...

A lot happens in four years, and I'm definitely not the same person who started reading this all those years ago.. So, Hiromu Arakawa, thanks for being there every month, without fail. I'm sure as hell gonna miss this.

Not sure if this thread is the place to post.

Even though a lot of things did not get settled, I like how it ended. It opens up the opportunity for Arakawa Hiromu to expand more in a guidebook, something like "All the things you want to know about HAGAREN. Plus, a 10-page never-before-seen 'special short manga' exclusive to this guidebook!"
(I hope. ^^wink.gif

Though Scar's birthname I think should be kept unknown. I know some people are disappointed, but I feel that should Arakawa Hiromu reveal his name, and it doesn't live up to fan standards (It might be something like Jabaal or Nikhil. Those are the names of two of my classmates who are from the Middle East, where maybe the Ishval influence is from?). There would be three groups of fans: fans who like the name, fans who hate the name vehemently and/or will change his name in a fanfic they will write to something they think is extraordinary (but is probably a simple name like Jon), and fans who dislike the name so strongly the only mention of the manga they will mention to others will be "a story about two brothers who travel blahblahblah, but the guy's true name is [INSERTNAMEHERE], WHICH RUINS THE WHOLE STORY."
So even though Arakawa Hiromu mentioned she would reveal his name, I believe she prevented a useless debate among the fans. The choice is given to the readers. If they want to give him a name, okay. But that's their own opinion and it isn't canon, so other fans wouldn't be upset.

But back to the "10-page never-before-seen special short manga" I mentioned above. My friend who helps me with English came up with the idea that:
o After years pass and Grumman has passed on, Mustang becomes Fuhrer. Ed tries to see him at headquarters, but Mustang is in a meeting, so he hands a small envelope to his secretary (maybe Hawkeye?) to give to him, and when Mustang returns, he opens the envelope to see the 520 cenz and a note that says "About time, idiot."
o Cut to Ed going back home where his eldest child is celebrating his birthday party. For a present, Ed gives him an alchemy book. His other child looks over the elder's shoulder at the book, and the two share a glance that says "Can't wait for the guests to leave so we can study this!" It is implied that Ed has been teaching them alchemy (along with "friendly reminders" not to attempt human transmutation).
o Ed then looks over to the corner where Al is standing, munching on a slice of apple pie that Winry made for the occasion. Al is wearing an outfit of Xingese origin. ("No idea where May is - no matter what I come up with it would be too shoujo and non-Arakawa that people would immediately shun me for the rest of my life" - My friend who came up with the idea).
o The last page is Ed napping under a tree, with Winry doing maintenance on his automail.

The above is my friend's idea, I take no credit for coming up with. I only bring it up here because it would be nice if that happened. ^^

Perfect.

Hopefully I'll write more coherent thoughts when I reread it again.


This is me right now. 5 days of waiting sure made for a lot of pent up emotion.

All I want to say at the moment is... I loved it.
Could've done with a lot more Roy, but I can't complain.

Nope, Arakawa has stated in interviews that the Ishvalans were inspired by the Ainu. smile.gif

But I agree with you about Scar. As I said earlier at this point giving him a name would be anti-climatic. I doubt it would tell us anything more about his character.

So, the manga has ended now. I have always been more fan of the first anime than manga and the brotherhood. Yet, I had always thought that the end of the first series was too sad and not to my liking. Now, after reading the last chapter, I think of the first anime even more fondly. The end of the manga wasn't bad by no means, it was only too happy. I had thought that someone would die or lose something important but, as many have complained, it was very similar to the end of Harry Potter. The happy ending doesn't seem to suit FMA. This was a series about sacrifices and the harsh reality of the world. Yet, as I had feared, the inner theme of the true meaning of family must have been the aim.

Yet, there is sill one thing I don't understand: Did Mustang get his sight back? It's pretty difficult to tell from a picture of that kind. Yet, we see Havoc in rehabilitation.
Many responses I've read said that Mustang used the Philosopher's Stone to get his eye sight back. If that was the case, Havoc wouldn't be able to walk. Havoc said clearly that the nerves were damaged so there was no way of moving his legs again. I'mso confused by this thing! Musatng wouldn't be able to become Fuhrer if he remained blind, yet he was so willing to make Havoc able to walk again that he very well could have given the Stone to Havoc.
Anyone got information?

I'm sorry but I don't understand why you think the message about sacrifices and reality wasn't reached in entire series and the ending. Yes, the ending left off on a positive note, but in the end...


-Father got dragged behind the gate because he got too conceited and tried to trick Truth and was punished because of it
-Ed gave up his gate/alchemy to get Al back
-Hoho was ready to give up his life for his son


And that was just in the last chapter! Throughout the whole series it's been an overarching theme. Just because sadness or sacrifice (and I still think that's debatable) wasn't heavily prevalent during the last chapter, doesn't mean that wasn't the theme.

Also there can be more than one theme in a major work. In fact, there often should be, in my opinion.

I would argue that the series was never about sacrifice or the harsh realities of the world. Well maybe the first series but not the manga. What I mean is Arakawa seemed to reject needless sacrifice. If you remember during the first Scar incident Al is angry that Ed is willing to throw away his life. At another point Ed makes the 520 Cenz promise with Roy also in attempt to stop Roy from needlessly throwing away his life too. No FMA was never about sacrifice it was always about instead of needlessly throwing away your life think what you can do with your lives to give them meaning. Many characters in the end are following this path" Ed and Al trying to find way to fix the bad things alchemy has done, Roy and Scar dedicating their lives to fix Ishval, Ling is working as emperor.


And while the manga certainly does not deny harsh realities it also doesn't say those harsh realities are the end. No the manga has always said despite these realities there is still always hope. The reason these characters succeeded is because they worked for what they earned. They certainly did not earn anything by taking the easy path and they all learned a lot along the way. I think Ed's lesson that he no longer needed alchemy was especially potent and for me it really tied everything together beautifully. In the very first chapter Ed told Rose "Alchemists are the closest to god" and in the end of the story Ed realized his true conceit. I wasn't really sure about Father but now we see that he was the opposite of Ed. He wanted to obtain perfection and the ultimate truth, but Ed realizes in the end these things do not matter. It's okay not to know everything, it's okay to rely on your friends, it's okay to take your time. Because Ed can no longer rely on alchemy he now discovers the beautiful view and who knows what else he will discover.


Also I am tired of the Harry potter comparisons. JK Rolwing does not have a copyright on married main characters with children. If anything this just shows the full cycle of life. And after following these characters for so many years I for one am pleased they got the happy ending they deserved. And yes they did deserve it.



On another note Mustang healed his blindness using the P.Stone. He would not still be in the military otherwise (which the series indicates he is). However he is not Fuhrer yet although he has been promoted.

As for Havoc being able to walk even in real life there are cases where a patient who is told they will never walk again ends up recovering.

Why do you think so? Maybe there was enough Philosopher's Stone for both of them.
Besides, Roy was clear when he gave his orders: he called ALL his subordinates (key word: "subete"). That means Havoc too, regardless of the army's say on that.

And as I predicted... Hiromu surprised me as always. Ed using the gate itself as the toll... I would have never dreamt it in a thousand years. Like my friend said "I didn't even know that was allowed!" For a shining second I thought Hohenheim was going to live, but his life was ended. It felt more like a happy ending for him though, since his immortal life was more painful to him than a normal life span. And Al... crying_anim02.gif I've never been so powerfully happy for a fictional character before! It's like a small weight was lifted off my shoulders.

I don't feel a need for any further Royai happening, especially after all those powerful previous chapters! Roy stopping revenge for Riza's life, and the magical hug of awesomesauce is my conclusion to their relationship. There's a lot in the future for our minds to fill in. (Besides being Fuhrer at 30 would be crazy young!) Glad Roy got his sight back - both physically and mentally. heart.gif

In the very last panel with all the pictures... did anyone notice that Black Hayate had puppies?! (it's above Ling as emperor) Also - did Riza cut her hair again? She must have because Roy's got his fancy new stars for his rank there... (that looks like a General rank too) Anyways, I think that whole panel is great. It made everything feel so genuine!

Edwin FTW. Loved how the characters can be romantic but still be themselves and slightly cute/embarrassed! I'm really glad that Winry was content to let Ed and Al travel the world again, and wait for them once again. This time she won't have to worry about an apocalypse!

Love for Hiromu wub.gif I believe her message from all this is - you can still be an ordinary and small human, and be content with yourself. Not only that, but be a legend and a hero to the people. Perfection is for no-one, and happiness can be attained by all through hard work and endurance. Those lessons are valuable to me, and I'm glad I was able to enjoy through them this amazing work of art and soul.

Apparentally, a lot of people misunderstood my message. I don't know where to begin...

I'm sorry but I don't understand why you think the message about sacrifices and reality wasn't reached in entire series and the ending. Yes, the ending left off on a positive note, but in the end...

Yes, the meaning of sacrifice was a major theme in the series and those parts, in my opinion, were the highlights of the manga. I'm just saying that the ending was too clean. No one really lost anything that they would miss. Ed lost his ability to do alchemy but he seems to be okay with that, he enjoys his life. In anime 1, Edward got sent into a different universe, wasn't able to do alchemy and couldn't be together with his brother. In anime 1, Edward sacrificed his life in Amestris in order for Al to get his body back.
I had hoped for something more dramatic, something no one had expected. The last chapter was okay in explaining what happened in Amestris after the upheaval, but it seemed like Arakawa lost her interest in the series. Actually, the thought first came to my mind when she at the end of one chapter took away the souls of all of the people in Amestris but at the beginning of the next chapter, the souls are reunited. That soul-taking, in my opinion, was an excellent plot twist and I would have loved to see more of it. It's as if Arakawa wanted to end the series so that no one would be asking for more FMA because they're satisfied.

Also there can be more than one theme in a major work. In fact, there often should be, in my opinion.

I agree with you; complex stories are the best. FMA had many themes; sacrifice, the value of life, family, determination, love... That is one of the reasons why I love the series.

What I mean is Arakawa seemed to reject needless sacrifice

By sacrifice, I do not mean the kind of things you referred to (like the Scar incident). By sacrifice, I mean that something must be given up for something bigger and more important to take place. Like, if Hohenheim had given up his life for Alphonse to get his body back, that would have been sacrifice. Hohenheim loves his sons and he already was dying and longed to be with Trisha.
I hope I explained it better this time. tongue.gif

As for Havoc being able to walk even in real life there are cases where a patient who is told they will never walk again ends up recovering.

This Havoc thing keeps bothering me! I have heard of those cases but wouldn't that be kind of cheap? One day he would just walk to HQ and say "My nerves connected themselves." Gosh, no! The man has spine injury and the nerves there do not just heal by themselves. Those nerves never heal, they haven't got the ability to do so. No physical therapy is going to help Havoc to walk again because the nerves are damaged.

Why do you think so? Maybe there was enough Philosopher's Stone for both of them.

I want to believe that. I hope Mustang let Havoc take the share so they both can recover enough to be in the army.
Oh, I hope Arakawa will explain that.

No offense but it seems to me you wanted the manga to end like the first anime. That might have been fine for the first anime but that would have been absolutely horrible for the manga because none of these things fit the manga at all. These characters struggled throughout the series. I for one am happy they found some happiness because they worked hard for it and they did deserve it.

As for Ed being content without alchemy that is just manga!Ed for you. The loss of alchemy is a big thing because this was something that defined him throughout the series. However instead of seeing the negative side of things Ed gets something positive out of it. To me it shows what a wonderful character Ed is and how much he has grown throughout the series.

And I am sorry it seems a little silly that because you personally didn't like the last chapter that Arakawa lost interest. I personally thought the last chapter was absolutely wonderful.

Hohenheim did offer himself as a sacrifice but Ed did not want to use his father's life like that. And in fact pretty much everyone predicted this would happen. I feel what Arakawa did with Ed giving up alchemy was unexpected yet more true to the nature of the series.

And once again this story is not about sacrifice. It never was. If you think it was then you missed the point.

In the first series Ed and Al sacrificed themselves for one another which I strongly disliked. In this series Roy said it perfectly


Edward isn't going to sacrifice himself. He knows all too well the horror and despair of being left alone. He wouldn't subject Alphonse to that.

Again it's not cheap because it happens in real life and if you pay attention it's not that one day he is like yay look at me I can walk again. In the picture he is moving but you can still see he is clearly struggling. It's probably something that will take a long time but that doesn't mean it is impossible.
