The cover of the July issue (coming out on June 11 in Japan) of Gangan is out!

(Warning! The image on the clock contains series final spoiler!)
FMA Gangan cover

It's great to see an FMA cover on Gangan, that image of Ed & Al looks very nice. I can't wait to read the Prototype! biggrin.gif

Thank you, Michiyo-! I love the cover! biggrin.gif

Captions on the magazine cover (translated... this actually sounds more dramatic in Japanese XD):
QUOTE
He is back!! At a desert town of クロワトール(kurowatooru)... a boy arrives, accompanied by a suit of armor!!
This is the root of one of the most powerful fantasy comics! Fullmetal Alchemist prototype, a special 61 page one-shot drawing by Hiromu Arakawa, with magazine cover and color pages.


And, yes, the July issue (coming out on June 11) of GanGan comes with a bonus gift, Fullmetal Alchemist special clock, and also a huge collection of info & article on Fullmetal Alchemist Sacred Star of Milos movie that will premier on July 2 in Japan. smile.gif

So, according to this, I assume it's a story with Ed and Al, by Arakawa-sensei. It's a NEW story (at least, new to us ^^), and it's the prototype for FMA, and it has Ed and Al, not a flying squirrel. And, it's 61 pages long. biggrin.gif

Anyway, the cover looks GREAT (yes, it's so nice to see FMA cover on GanGan again! ^^), and the clock looks awesome, and I can't wait to read this one!!!! biggrin.gif

Perhaps the thing about the flying squirrel was actually something else.

Although that would have been neat to see this sounds great too biggrin.gif

And the cover is gorgeous! I am glad I pre-ordered mine. smile.gif

GAAAH, I almost forgot about this!!! biggrin.gif Have had kind of a rotten month, so this totally makes my day, hahaha! SO EXCITED. And so glad I live in a major city with multiple Japanese bookstores where I can get the issue for a mere $10, even in my broke state. Must call and reserve a copy tomorrow! smile.gif

Had not checked the manga section of the site in a while - so much news to catch up on! For shame! biggrin.gif

Thank you, loicos! biggrin.gif
Also, if you happen to have (or run into) some "preview" page scans from this prototype story, please post and share!
That would be much appreciated. ^^


ETA: I don't have time to put up full translations now, but here is the complete spoiler summary for the "FMA Prototype Story":

Warning!! Complete total spoiler below:

The story starts with Major Aluzen* in his residence in desert town of CollioureToul*. (*Spelling are mine and probably not correct XD) A dead body of an alchemist lays besides him. Aluzen is holding Philosopher's Stone (it has a "boxy" shape xp) and wondering where he can find an alchemist who can fulfill his wish (= obtaining immortality).

Next scene is CollioureToul train station. This is the end of line, as the railroad track got buried in sand in the area ahead because of the year-long drought. Ed and Al get off train.

Ed and Al stop by at the dinner so that Ed can eat some lunch. Dinner now only serves one menu for lunch, a bread with a slice of lunch-meat looking stuff on top.

The owner of dinner (Rose is his daughter) tells Ed that if he doesn't like don't eat it as there are others in town who can't even get that slice of bread. Ed asks if this is the town called "CollioureToul, the Oasis of Desert" and the owner of dinner explains that it has changed because of the year-long drought, and crops are dead and farm animals are dead, and to top it off, the Major Aluzen of Amestris army who is controlling the town is ruthless (like Yoki used to be XD) charging high tax and anyone complains would get captured by his soldiers, and now the town's people are forced to choose between waiting here and die, or leave town, or complain and get captured by Aluzen's soldiers. Rose tells his dad to stop making useless complains to some travelers.

Ed finished eating, and as Ed & Al are ready to leave, Al knocks off a vase. Al fixes it with alchemy, and that gets the words out that they are Alchemists.

Of course, next comes the usual "We are the famed State Alchemist, Fullmetal Alcheist and his brother..." followed by towns people mistake Al for Fullmetal Alchemist and Al tells that small one is the State Alchemist, and Ed gets mad, blah blah ...scene.

After that, town's people ask Ed to save the town, and Ed tells them that he would do it for 100,000 sens, because you can't get something without losing something.

Ed and Al leave disappointed town's people behind, and Rose, being mad at Ed's attitude, follows Ed and Al, and as she's calling Ed with names she gets restraint by Aluzen's soldiers.

Turns out, Aluzen wants to meet Ed, and Ed's brother and "friend" are invited as well. Rose goes along, hoping to get the chance to directly complain to Aluzen.

They arrive at Aluzen's huge mansion. Ed is invited to dine with Aluzen, and Al & Rose are escorted to "other room"

As soon as Aluzen starts talking about getting Ed to give him immortality, Ed immediately turns it down, saying that's the area humans should not invade, and Ed starts to leave. But....

Al and Rose is imprisoned. To enlighten Rose, Al transforms an wild mushroom he found in the cell into a flower and gives to Rose. Rose is impressed that Alchemy can create anything, and Al correct her and tells her the basic laws of Alchemy.... about the same time Ed tells Aluzen about the Equivalent Exchange and explains why Ed can't give Aluzen immortality.....

Just then, Aluzen shows Ed his Philosopher's Stone.

Aluzen tells Ed that even with the stone, so far all the alchemists who have tried to give Aluzen the immortality ended up dead, and Ed explains that that's the rebound effect, as these alchemists were not skilled enough to handle the Stone properly.

Ed names the price: if successful, 1.) release Ed, Al, & Rose, and 2.) Ed will get the Stone, and Aluzen accepts.

Ed asks piece of Aluzen's hair or nail, and Aluzen, reluctant to lose his hair, gives Ed his nail clippings.

Ed swallows the Stone and performs alchemy to turn Aluzen with the body that never ages.

It was successful, but then Aluzen changes his mind and attacks Ed, and he asks Ed to return him the Stone.

At the same time, Al is attacked in the cell by Aluzen's soldier.

Al falls, but shortly after, gets up and takes down the soldiers. Al explains, to astonished Rose, about him being body-less, and why.

Meanwhile, Aluzen is finding out that his attack on Ed's shoulder was useless because... Ed has an automail arm. Soon, another soldier finds out that his attack on Ed's leg is also useless because Ed also has automail leg.

Meantime, after they escape from the cell, Al tells Rose about how Al lost his whole body and Ed lost his limbs, about their failed attempt to bring back their mother.

Ed takes out the soldier and then counter-attacks Aluzen, but Aluzen now has a hard body that does not get old nor rot, and Ed's attack is being useless.

Just then Al and Rose, escaped from the cell, arrive and enter into the room.

Alzen is about to cut down Ed to get his Stone back, and then... Aluzen's body starts to stiffen. Ed tells Aluzen that he might have accidentally infused a screw or two from his automail into the transmutation equation, while Aluzen's body turns into steel.

As the transformation of Aluzen's body completed, Ed tells to hardened (and dead) Aluzen's body that he got he wished for; the body that would never get old nor rot.

---

Aluzen is gone. Rose explains that soldiers were deemed that they were just following Aluzen's orders, and therefore they were not punished, and soldiers were happy to be freed from Aluzen's reign. Also, food and other supplies that were cached at Aluzen's castle were released to town's people.
Yet, that would not help the town from vanishing, because of the drought.


As Rose sheds tears, Ed tells Rose her tears shed for something she truly wished to save is worth 1000 bars of gold, and as he wipes her tears he tells Rose that he has received his fees, and then he performs alchemy.

Town is abuzz, and town's people hurry to the edge of town where they find Rose standing in the shallow in the lake.

Ed is amazed that the Stone could create a lake from a drop of Rose's tear. (Al is amazed that Ed's stomach could regurgitates the stone that easily, like some human pump)

As Ed is saying "Finally, we can get our bodies back...and while I'm at it, maybe I can extend my height about 10 cm or so also..." (For that, Al mutters "aha, so he DID mind his height...) just then the stone desiccate into sand. Al explains the obvious that because Ed used the Stone to perform such a huge transformation (of making a lake) it used up the Stone, and Ed realizes his stupidity. But then they look at how happy that transformation made the town's people, and they accept that that was worth it, and continue their journey in search of the way to get their bodies back.

End.

Thank you so much for the extra scans, hilary!! hug.gif Looks like interesting stuff...and I really wish I had that clock!!

And thank you very much for the summary, Tombow!! hug.gif You guys are awesome! biggrin.gif

It's interesting how certain, small details can change/stay the same from prototype to finished product...and I think that "boxy shape" should be the new technical term for stones that have that shape. xP And I'm by no means a EdxRose fan, but that is really sweet when he wipes away her tear. smile.gif
