Well we don't know when that Brig General pic took place. I had the feeling that those pics were from various times in the future.
That being said I suppose a long time could be related to his whole career. But I still think it would take a little time for Roy to move to the very top. He might not have been an elderly man though since he started off quite young.
But, yeah, you're right ^^ I take it it's from around the same time as the pic of the Elrics, because Roy doesn't look THAT much older (just slightly) and neither does Riza, so, I take it to be around 5, 6 years after the Promised Day... not more then that. But it would be MUCH appreciated if someone could scan the entire Timeline for us, cause I'm really curious about many things ^^

What about Ling and Lanfan? Or Al? Anyway, I hope this book gives us a little insight into Ling and Al and the Flame Alchemist.
OT: About Roy being "above average" he's still above average. Which still makes him sexy!
<@katieelefun - Welcome to our board! C: I see you like Roy, and hope we get more info on Roy, and other characters you mentioned. ^^ As for some other part of your post, we see some mentions of end of series spoilers that are not covered by spoilers tags. We usually go ahead and add spoiler tags for these comments, then ask the poster to use proper spoiler tags in the future, but because these comments are, in our opinion, not directly related to the discussions on this book, but rather off-topic "inserted" comments, so, instead of adding spoiler tags, we simply took out these comments that are not directly related to this book. Hope you don't mind. C: ..if you'd like to talk about these topics, we do have designated discussion threads for those topics, and we hope to see your comments on those applicable discussion threads. C: Also, we took out some negative comments about some FMA characters (or a couple) which we think are also off-topic for this thread. If you would like to discuss those, we do have FMA character discussion threads where you can post and show that you don't care for these characters or a couple, etc., so please feel free to add your posts with these comments on these threads. C: If you have questions about locations of specific threads with specific topics, or any other questions about posting in our forums, our moderators would be happy to assist you. C: ~ Board staff>
The comment (one with an arrow ↓) on Ed's side of that illustration by Arakawa-sensei says: "(Ed is) standing on a platform"
There is a long conversation between Mr. Hirohito Araki (the author of "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure") and Arakawa-sensei in the book also, and part of it is currently on GanGan site(as posted on page 3 of this thread by Michiyo-) .
1.) It's a really good conversation piece, and eventually I would like to translate this, but since I'm currently overwhelmed with stuff to take care of and it may be a while before I can get to it, if anyone would like to do translations of this, or find translations, please post! Meantime, im_juice_leeposted the Google translations of this...which is sort of confusing (as in any on-line translation of Japanese material is ^^) but you can get some idea of the conversation topics.
2) There is more of this Araki/Arakawa conversation, and the rest is in the book. If can, someone please post the whole conversation! (then one day I will try to post the translations ^^). Reportedly, in that conversation Arakawa-sensei mention that in 10 years or so she would like to make a research trip to Silk Road and write manga on Silk Road, etc.
Also, there is a conversation between Arakawa-sensei and Mr. Kazuki Nakajima (author of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann/Gurren Laggan) in the book. This one is said to be a good one also. If anyone can, please post it. ^^ Reportedly, Arakawa-sensei talks about her thought on the ending of FMA in this conversation. ^^

*tries to contain excitement* That is easily hands down my favorite of the collaborations. XD I love the angle of the composition to pieces. I'm not usually one to buy anything in Japanese since I can't read it anyway, but if VIZ doesn't bring this guidebook to the States I'm buying it anyway.
Here is Ms. Fujiwara's Twitter on this, saying because she has been a big fan of FMA, she was very sad to learn that the editor of FMA Chronicle made the editing mistake and omitted Ms. Fujiwara's comments from her collab drawing page in Chronicle. On Twitter she asked others to spread this info so that as many people will be able to see the correct page.
It seems the first printing of the Chronicle has number of editing error/misprints.

Oh man that's a shame about the editing mistakes. I got my copy the other day but my Japanese knowledge is non-existent so the only thing I can enjoy is the pictures. I am happy to say there is a lot in the image department so I think the book is worth it even if you can't read it.

Arrgh,I'm gonna lose my mind! Is there any news? I mean in meaning of the news.And preferably secondary characters,military officers.
I know I want so much if we consider that it's thick and we haven't even know the full translated version of Guidebook3 but...I really need to learn what happens to the military and politic stuff okay?

^ Overall, large portion of pages in this Chronicle are spent for illustrations and messages from other GanGan/Square Enix manga artists that's congratulating the conclusion of FMA series. But, Arakawa-sensei's interview supposedly tells some interesting tidbits ...like how Ling became what he's became after the end of series, stuff like that. And the chronicle table also said to have some interesting info. If someone can kindly post the pages for Arakaw-sensei's interview, and also the whole chronological table, I can check out more.
