Welcome, everyone, to the week-1 of FMA manga Re-read it from beginning!" sessions!!
Please post your discussions for "Re-reading FMA: Session for chapter 1 here
For the reading reference for this session, please send a PM to A Pierrot's Aria and ask for "Reading Reference Assistance for week 1." (For more detailed explanation on this, please read my post here.)
Huge "thank you" goes to animegirl95 for "reference assistance" for this session, and Broken ChouChou for the transcripts, and also thank you, A Pierrot's Aria for all your help!! ^^
This thread is geared for those who have read the whole FMA manga, including the final chapter (chapter 108) and may potentially contain spoilers from any of chapters 1- 108.Those who do not wish to see such spoilers, please do not go any further!
For those participants who are reading FMA manga FIRST TIME, hope to see your posts on our "regular" (i.e. non-re-reading) chapter 1 discussion thread (thread will be posted shortly ^^)
For those who are re-reading this chapter, you are also welcome to join discussions on REGULAR (i.e. non-re-reading) chapter 1 discussion thread, AS LONG AS you do not post any spoiler content for chapters 2 - 108 chapters. Posting or mentioning of such spoiler contents, or even HINT of what to come in later chapters (such as "If you like seeing this, wait till how Ed will fight in chapter xx!" etc. etc) on REGULAR (i.e. non-re-reading) chapter 1 discussion thread is NOT ALLOWED, and any such content will be taken out by our moderators. However... (please read on)
For those who are re-reading this chapter, and find some info or revelations related to some chapters that are LATER than this chapter, and would like to discuss in more details about that future chapter content in that later chapter discussion thread, you are very welcome to go to the "regular" chapter discussion thread of that later chapter, and mention the information/revelation in chapter 1 and continue on with more extensive discussions about that future chapter content on that chapter discussion thread.
.....For example, say (some hypothetical situation ^^)...if you see some things you see in this chapter and you finally understand some stuff that was in chapter 67, and would like to add your newly discovered extensive analysis of something in that chapter, you are very welcome to go to "regular" chapter 67 discussion thread and add your post there with your newly discovered extensive analysis, and you can mention the connection to the content in chapter 1 there as well...
(But, please keep in your mind that even in such case, of course you can not post spoilers from yet further later chapters on that chapter discussion thread...for example in this case, posting spoiler content from chapters 68-108 on regular chapter 67 content discussion thread is NOT allowed. )
This thread is declared as "Spoiler Party" thread for all of FMA manga chapters up to chapter 107. You can mention any contents in FMA manga chapters 1- 107 without the use of spoiler tags on this thread. In addition, participants can mention the content of chapter 108 on this thread However, please note that even in Japan some FMA fans still haven't had a chance to read FMA manga's final chapter (chapter 108) due to last month's YoungGanGan mag with FMA manga chapter 108 all sold out (and in a very short time) and waiting for the reprint of the FMA manga final chapter in next month's YoungGanGan magazine. Therefore, until we lift such Spoiler tag condition for chapter 108 content, we ask you that if you post any content from chapter 108 (or even posting any HINT for chapter 108 content) on this thread, in addition to usingSPOILER tags, please give warning SPECIFICALLY stating that the the content under the spoiler cover is some spoiler content from FMA manga's final chapter.
Some notable information for this chapter will be listed on the post below, and also, for the English transcripts for chapter 1 from Viz' volume 1 FMA manga (courtesy of Broken ChouChou) please scroll down on this page.
Thank you, and now please proceed to the actual discussions that start on page 2 of this thread. ^^
ETA: "Reading reference" for session 2 is now ready! Please send a PM to A Pierrot's Aria and ask for "Reading Reference Assistance for week 2."
