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.

Actually, it's General. We know he's already a Brigadier General 2 years after the Promised day... ^^ The Brigadier General insignia has no star. ^^ Here: http://fma.wikia.com/wiki/Military_Ranks

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! wink.gif


<@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>

Thank you, redon23 for sharing these pics! biggrin.gif

That illustration is currently on GanGan site also. biggrin.gif



The comment (one with an arrow ↓) on Ed's side of that illustration by Arakawa-sensei says: "(Ed is) standing on a platform" laugh.gif

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-) .
QUOTE
『ジョジョの奇妙な冒険』は勇気をくれる漫画

荒川: 荒木先生の作品は『バオー来訪者』から読ませていただいています。もちろん『ジョジョの奇妙な冒険』(以下:『ジョジョ』)も第1部からずっと愛読していまして。今日はお会いできて光栄です。どうぞよろしくお願いします!
荒木: おお~! そんな昔から読んでくださっているとは、嬉しいですね。ありがとうございます! 
荒川: 小学生の頃、姉が「少年ジャンプ」を買っていまして。納屋に積んであったのを何気なく手に取ったのが、ちょうど『ジョジョ』第1話の掲載号だったんです。農機具などを入れておく、薄暗い部屋で夢中になって読みました。
荒木: それはムード満点だ(笑)。
荒川: 怖さ倍増でしたね。もうハマらないわけがない! という状況でした(笑)。当時は子供だったので、波紋法をマネしたり、「こんなスタンド欲しいー!」と騒いだり(笑)。そして今回お会いするにあたって、改めて「私にとっての『ジョジョ』の魅力とは」を考えてみたのですが、やはり勇気をくれるところではないかと。
荒木: 『鋼の錬金術師』(以下:『鋼』)もそこが魅力ですよね。読んでいると、人間の根源について考えさせられます。錬金術のシステムを通じて、自然界や人間界の仕組みまで追求していく。「おお!」って思いました。
荒川: わぁ、ありがとうございます! その、人間の根源を考える時「勇気や誇りって何だろう?」という部分は外せないと思うんです。そこへいくと『ジョジョ』の登場人物は敵も味方もみんな誇りをもって、懸命に生きている。「あっぱれ」だと思います。特にイギーは……あの、ガムをクチャクチャやってたイヌに泣かされるとは……! あと、リサリサの逆さ煙草のシーンもグッとくるし、シュトロハイムのブレのなさもいいですね。本当、どのキャラも大好きです。
荒木: ははは(笑)。シュトロハイムはもう身体半分が機械鎧みたいなものだからね。『鋼』の世界にいても違和感ないですよ。僕は『鋼』ではアームストロングがいいですね。こういう、真面目でありつつ趣味に走る人は好きです。特にシグと一緒にムキッとポーズをとるシーンは楽しい。逆に、アルがボロボロになるシーンは辛いです。何かの拍子に血印が消えたら……と思うとハラハラしちゃって。
荒川: カバーしとけって話ですよね(笑)。

*********

「エルリック」は危険!?‘70~’80年代の少年漫画界

荒川: 『ジョジョ』の魅力といえばもうひとつ、独特のセリフ回しがあると思います。「ジョジョの奇妙な百人一首」のCDを仕事場で流したりするんですけど、『ジョジョ』を読んだことが無いアシスタントさんまでなぜか暗唱できるという。
荒木: それはすごい(笑)。僕は「なぜ戦うのか」とか、動機や理由づけは意識してるんですが、このセリフを流行らせようとか、読者を泣かせようとか、その辺りはあまり考えていないんです。だから、そう言っていただけると嬉しいですね。
荒川: 日常生活で、無意識のうちに『ジョジョ』のセリフが出ることがあるんですよ。たぶん荒木先生が思っていらっしゃる以上に、読者の血肉になっているんだと思います。それだけ強い言霊が宿った作品なんだなあと。
荒木: ただ、ホラー要素がある作品なので、あえて汚い言葉も使って……美しい部分ばかり描いてちゃダメって思いはありますね。「白と黒」「善と悪」「美と醜」といった対極的なものを頭に置きつつ描いているので、人間のゲスな部分も避けずに踏み込もう、と。
荒川: なるほど。
荒木: でもね、こうして認めてもらえたのは連載開始から10年くらい経ってからじゃないかなあ。当時は外国が舞台で、主人公も外国人という設定は難しいと言われていて。編集企画段階で落とされちゃうんです。うん、当時は僕も生意気だったんですかね。そういう少年漫画のルールやジンクスに挑戦したいという思いもありました。「ジャンプ」の基本原則である「友情・努力・勝利」さえ守っていれば、横文字でもいいじゃないかと。
荒川: しかも、物語の入り口はアステカですよね。
荒木: わかりにくすぎ(笑)!
荒川: いや~、私のようなオカルト好きには、もうたまらないですけれども。
荒木: 怪奇系の大河ドラマも、当時の漫画界ではヒットしないと言われていたんです。たまたま、こういう世界観が好きな編集者が後押しをしてくれて……『ジョジョ』を連載させてもらえたのは奇跡だと思いますね。だから『鋼』の「エルリック」というネーミングは、当時だったらかなりキケンでしたよ(笑)。
荒川: ははは、ボツだ(笑)。
荒木: その辺りはすんなり決まったんですか?
荒川: エニックス(現・スクウェア・エニックス)はゲーム会社なので、その点はスムーズだったと思います。むしろRPGに慣れた読者を想定していましたから、ファンタジーの香りがするネーミングがいいのかなと。
荒木: そうなんですか。時代は変わったんだなあ。

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_lee posted 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. biggrin.gif

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. smile.gif

======

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.

^ Welcome to our board, Merlyn LeRoy, and thank you for the pics! biggrin.gif

Also, thank you, Michiyo- for that pic! Niiice! happy.gif

@Heza, me, too! I love that pic! wub.gif

I will try to add info and translations for those "collaboration" pics later ^^

ETA: I got some extra info on that collab pic by Ms. Cocoa Fujiwara posted by Michiyo- above.

The image in Chronicle is missing Ms. Fujiwara's comments (mistake by Editor).
GanGan then posted the apology and the drawing image that correctly includes Ms. Fujiwara's message on GanGan site. (It states the apology and ask readers to click on teh link to get to the correct image that has the drawing with Ms. Fujiwara's messages.)

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. ohmy.gif

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. biggrin.gif

I would but I don't have a scanner. I would love to know what is actually being said in the book. sad.gif


I know someone who is getting the book and who is able to read it. Maybe she will translate some of it...until then we just have to be patient.

I ordered the Guidebook a while ago, but I still don't have it. When I get my copy and there is still no one who posted it, I can do it.
