And, here it is!!

(Warning!! Royai Spoilers on this post!! (although, the next one is in Japanese xp) ---->) Arakawa-sensei's comment (in Japanese) (click me!)


In case anyone missed the whole stuff above, here is re-posting of my quick translations of this comment:
Comment (by Arakawa-sensei): After the conclusion of the series, we got many questions from fans that were asking "aren't the Colonel and the Lieutenant going to get married?"
[I couldn't get them married because..] because of the Military regulations, if they get married they can no longer stay as the superior officer and [his] aid....

@iAmjelly - Tehehe, yeah. Thank you for understanding me. ^^

@Michiyo- - You're my heroin for bringing this news to us! hug.gif

@Turdaewen - Yeah, this was nine (going on ten) years in making!! biggrin.gif

@RadicalDreamer - I totally agree with you; This is so very much Arakawa-sensei's way of confirming it. biggrin.gif

Oh my gosh this makes me so giddy... I can't help it!! C:

I don't know how others would read this, but in my mind, from this day on (actually, I'd use April 22, 2011, the day this Artbook III with Arakawa-sensei's comment was officially released ^^) Roy & Riza is "officially" CANON! clapping.gif

Tombow--Running off that last thought, does this mean that Royai Day should be switched to April 22? (That being the day we can probably consider it officially became canon.) Not that it would probably ever be an "official" (as official as it gets, considering it's a fan thing, anyway) change... Whatever; I'm always up for celebrating Royai! biggrin.gif

Or we can have two Royai Days. We should keep the "unofficial" Royai Day on June 11, and April 22 can be the "Canon Royai Day". ^^
We've been waiting for this for years, so we must celebrate it! biggrin.gif

Now I hope that we'll get more hints in the upcoming FMA Chronicle guidebook.

(Potential Royai Spoilers ahead!) We should keep both. laugh.gif Royai Eve on June 11th and Royai day on April 22nd. (Even though April is before June...! But it's okay because unofficial is "eve" and "official" is day. Ahaha!) laugh.gif

(Warning!! Royai Spoilers on this post!!)

Wow, I like both jacksparrow589's and Michiyo-'s ideas! ETA: And A Pierrot's Aria's also! biggrin.gif
(You know, I'm so giddy I can't think straight. XDD)

Let's see... I like the idea of having Royai "Canon" Day as April 22... and then every time we mention this, we will use Spoiler, even during the celebration. XDDD
And, we can also keep "traditional" Royai Day on June 11, as the day for Royai fans to enjoy Royai as our own, especially as the day of celebration for our "Royai creativity", with all kind of fanfics and fanarts..you know, when we can go "unofficial" with Royai? ^^

That' just my thinking now, but everyone's opinions and ideas are welcome, and then please decide whatever you guys like. biggrin.gif

Whatever we do, I'd LOVE to have some kind of celebration marking this occasion!! happy.gif

As I said, I'm always up for celebrating Royai. Always. tongue.gif

Maybe April 22 can be more focused on official art/manga/anime... and worshipping Arakawa! tongue.gif And June 11 can remain the more fan-focused celebration. (I think this is kind of what Tombow was saying. In that case, I second it!)

@jacksparrow589 - Yeah, that's more or less what I mean, for June 11 Royai Day. The day we can make our imaginations fly freely with Royai, and celebrate Royai in whatever the way, and can have fun with it. laugh.gif
As for worshipping Arakawa-sesnsei, I've been thinking making May 8 (Arakawa-sensei's birthday) as "Arakawa Worship Day" XDD
So, for this (Royai Canon day) I'd love to have something to celebrate Royai being Canon, although I'm not quite sure exactly what to do. XDD ...For example, we can have fanarts and fanfics, but for "Royai Canon Day" (or "Canon Royai Day") fics and arts have to have Roy and Riza "in character" ?? ^^

I'm not the best one with those ideas. XD Please keep brainstorming for more ideas for this celebration! biggrin.gif

Tombow--Good point about Arakawa's birthday. Hadn't thought about it like that, but it makes complete sense that we (the Royai Thread, I mean) are not the only ones who "worship" her. tongue.gif

I'd say anything "in character", be it official art or fanfic/fanart that's been kept pretty well in-character (pretty much just as long as people make a good-faith effort, really) and in-FMA-universe would be cool for Royai Canon Day, but that's just my opinion. I'm totally cool with pretty much whatever people can come up with. smile.gif

So, anyone else have any other brilliant ideas? I'm kinda out... ^^;

Jelly got me over here, and I have to say - so many familiar names from fandom! Hi everybody!

OUR OTP IS CANON YAY! I am totally up for this celebrational thing. Actually, the question about changing the date of RoyAi day induces me to ask - why was June 11th chosen for RoyAi day in the first place? I haven't been able to find an answer to that question anywhere, so I'm hoping someone here can tell me.


<js589: Hi, LadyNorbert! Great to see you here! I edited your post because of a certain word we need to keep on the down-low. smile.gif >

Oh, oops! Sorry about that.

That is because Arakawa had a tendency to put up most the major "Royai scenes" of the manga in the June edition of the magazine... We don't know if that was intentional or not, but every year, we seemed to have a "Royai moment" in the FMA chapter released in June...

Most the "major Royai scenes" were released that month, in fact!!

And, since Shounen GanGan's release date is 11th... there you have it.

So, the reason for the date is very similar to our Cannon Royai Day: the day we get "Royai". lol

Hey LadyNorbert - it's good to see you here! Welcome to the board!! biggrin.gif

As for Canon Royai Day - Hell yes! With two royai days though, it's kind of hard to decide what people want to do on both because then they'll be too similar. Plus, it's kind of hard to draw a line when it comes to "in character" when it comes to writing fanfiction. A qualitative line is just to vague.

So, I was thinking, (And I dunno if this will work exactly), but what if all the Roy centered royai fics were written on one day and all the Riza centered royai fics on the other day?

^Yeah, or quite similarly, "unofficial" Royai day could be dedicated to Roy and Riza as individual characters (because they're both amazing like that!) And "canon" Royai day could be dedicated to celebrating them being 'together'/their relationship, maybe? happy.gif

And welcome to the Royai thread, LadyNorbert!

Oh,everything's settled! I'm very very relieved and I have been walking around with a dorky smile for two days.At school everyone's asking about my weird change and I'm pretending like "Oh it's my normal mood,don't you guys know?" Being lucky with studying in a class full of geeks they all know FMA and Royai so I don't want to look like a crazy.Because for them they're already in love,I wouldn't be so happy about this. laugh.gif (yeah ...they're kinda...)

Anyways enough with my totally-not-normal-life,I'm totally for this two-days festival! And btw,April 22,June 11 22-11=11 how hilarious!

Ehem,I was going to make something for Royai and now it seems like an opportunity for me laugh.gif
I want to make a fanmix for Royai but I need you because this fanmix will contain songs in different languages. I was going to make my own but when this awesomeness happened I think we might do it together? A mix in different languages and all songs are for Royai! How's that idea ? rolleyes.gif Just a celebration thought that crossed my mind XD

And I saw LadyNorbert? OMG,Welcommeee <3<3

LadyNorbert--It's okay. You learn as you go, trust me. And, though I said it before, good to see you here! smile.gif

iAmjelly--Roy-centered for one day and Riza-centered for the other day is definitely a possibility. Any ideas on how to decide which?

A Pierrot's Aria--That's a good idea, too!

FirstMoon--Heck yes! I love doing mixes! I have so many songs for Royai that it's not even funny!

As iAmjelly pointed out, I should probably amend my idea. Official art/merchandise/what have you only on Canon day and fanworks only on "Unofficial" day... does that sound better?
