I've been thinking...what are the chances of an Arakawa side-story compilation? You know, a tankobon with STRAY DOG, all three (four) chapters of Shanghai, Bat in a Blue Sky, etc. Otherwise I doubt we'll see any of them state-side.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

I've found the raw of Volume 5, and it has a short gaiden that takes place right after the end of the manga.

Taito: "Damn you, Laila, is that how you treat the brother who has come home after Seven years?!"
Laila: "For making me wait that long..."
Laila: "You deserve another one!!"

Village people A: "Ah.....?" "Is that Taito?"
Village people B: "Taito is back!!"

~ End of Juushin Enbu 5 ~

I don't know what they're saying, but it's still sweet. ^^
(I added very quick translations. I don't have much time right now, so this is not 100% precise, but you get the idea. ^^ ~ Tombow)

I still hope an English scanlation of the last two chapters will come out someday, I only found them in Italian, so I couldn't understand much of it.

ETA: Thanks for the translation, Tombow! biggrin.gif
