Oops, seems like this thread died when the leaves began to fall ^^' I'd love to discuss the manga with someone, so please add whatever you think of
Mei’s introduction: she’s so cool in this chapter! The way she saves Kayal's dad from the mine is really impressive for such a cute girl. (Watch their faces after she rebuilt the entrance). The way Xiao-Mei copies her movements is adorable (see page 15 with the 'GRIN' !) Ow and let’s not forget her bishonen interpretation of Sir Edward xp The poor girl...
Another poor girl: Winry... With her 'favourite' client who likes to destroy his automail every now and then ^^
I laughed so hard when I saw/read the background used at the bottom of page 20 (evil god or something) and the “This Used To Be Him” scene on the next page XD (and YES I was actually reading this chapter in a public area with lots of people… ^^’)
+ Ed’s face when he sees Al fidgeting in the alley --> priceless :’)
Lin is very well introduced at the end of this chapter. At first he seems like a jolly and innocent guy, a new friend for the Elric Bro’s. But then he shows his ‘darker’ side and it gets clear that he is dead serious about the Stone.
The first impressions of the Xing characters: they are not to be underestimated, even though they look cute and seem to have a weakness for food ^^
