Oh, that caption... such a little caption to an illustration, so difficult to read in that scan... But it was good enough!

I hadn't checked it all, but if Tombow says so... Royai is indeed canon. I'm not such a shippy person, but hell, I'm happy with this!

^ Oh no no, that's just how I feel. ^^ (I'm in no way the authority in Royai matters XDD I'll leave that to Turdaewen and others xp)
But, it seems this comment is generating reactions among FMA fans on the Net, including Japanese readers, so I'm guessing the sentiment might be mutual among others.

As for the festival/celebration, I'll leave it to you guys' capable hands... jacksparrow589 and everyone, please come up with some good way to celebrate the occasion. ^^

This is what I think:

- First, if Arakawa didn't think the reason for Roy and Riza not getting married to be note worthy, she wouldn't have mention that in the first place.

- Second, she wouldn't put up a reason for 'impediment' of them getting married if they didn't even like eachother... if Roy and Riza weren't a couple (or weren't thought as a romantic pair by Arakawa herself), she would have answered that question differently: she would say there's no such thing, or that they were "not like that", or something of the sort.
Meaning: if she said they couldn't get married because of Military Regulations, it means they would probably get married otherwise. They not being an item would be a much bigger 'impediment' for marriage than Military Regulations! So, it's only logic to think that, in Arakawa's mind, the biggest impediment for the marriage is Military regulations.
That can bring a lot of questions about specifics, like "are they postponing their relationship until Roy gets to the top?" and "Is there also one of the reasons Roy wishes to get there so much?"

- Third, I've always found a little weird for western fans of FMA always question so much the cannoness of Royai... I mean, I know it's not explicit as many other western-like animes would put it, but being subtle and implied is such a stablished caracteristic of Arakawa, already, so where's the big surprise?

Moreover, I don't know about you guys, but I had my share of contact with Japanese people while growing up (being born and raised in a city where there're so many of them as I was) and one of the things I found curious about them (and got accostumed to) is the fact that they are NEVER "to the point". You'll never get a straight, forward answer "Do that" from a Japanese... it's a cultural thing for them to be subtle... When they ARE straight forward, it's for western influence (or they're really pissed lol). Unlike most other asian folk, the Japanese are very sleek when it comes to "saying their mind" (very differently from Koreans or Chinese, for example). So, it's sorta normal for Arakawa not think necessary to be "explicit" and expect that people would just "get it".



About the celebrations, I only have one fear about only having "fan stuff" on the June 11th: that would probably mean that, in about 5 years, we would stop celebrating April 22nd altogether, since we'll hardly get anything new on Royai when the whole series is over! If don't produce things ourselves, there will not be anything new by next year...
But I'm still thinking of a satisfactory solution... lol

I LEAVE FOR A FEW DAYS AND THIS.

OH. MY. GOD. ICANNOTEVEN.

All right, guys, you're definitely right, this calls for MAJOR celebration...right now I can't even...my sister thinks I'm insane...well, after years of speculation and clinging to subtle moments (the best kind!) for proof and reasurrance...it's real, we now have proof tongue.gif And from the cow goddess herself!

And if she had been direct, it would have lost all the charm of being a RoyAi fan...we'd lose the chance to dissect each and every word (our fave passtime) and we wouldn't have the pleasure of arguing over what she really meant for years to come (our fave...well, it's just our job, as RoyAi defenders...lol!)

I knew that picture was special the first time I saw it! XDDD Thanks so much for all the info, Tombow and everyone involved! A year after the manga's (seemingly, and I say seemingly because, after all, we knew they'd be together forever...that sounded cheesy, you know what I mean) ambiguous ending, it's been confirmed! It's not like we didn't know they were canon already - it's obvious, and we all knew it to be true - but i still think this is very special, because it's just...it's just NICE to have confirmation, especially a subtle piece like this, in the way we RoyAi fans love it!

In celebration, a picture of some cosplays I met at Anime Boston this weekend! I said, "give me RoyAi fanservice!" and when I usually say that, I get a hug or something...but they actually kissed!...it was awesome, and all their fellow FMA cosplayers were huge RoyAi fans like me, so we just fangirled for like 10 minutes (Roy kinda wandered off, poor guy...)




<js589: Edited because of words that "give it away", as it were. Also, if my usage of spoiler tags is too liberal, please let me know! smile.gif>

Awesome photo, RoyxRizaFan! laugh.gif Great looking cosplays, too!

And I personally wouldn't mind if we kept it simple and used both days to celebrate the general awesomeness of Roy/Riza/Royai via any means, like fanfiction, fanart, discussion etc... tongue.gif

It makes me very happy to know that Royai is now cannon! smile.gif I think it would be great to have 2 days to celebrate the occasion.

@RoyxRizaFan: That's a very nice picture!

OHHHH MYYYYY GODDDDD.

Sooo i have not been 'active' on the site for about 6 months, but I check the site at least once a week for any news on the movie and in general. Naturally the day after I check in THIS GLORIOUS NEWS was posted.

OH MY GODDDDDD ha ha ha ha. anyway, sorry if I'm misunderstanding this, but isn't there going to be a new guidebook or something and in the guidebook there is going to be new scenes from the manga that Arakawa had to cut out because it made the chapter to long or didn't fit in? Again maybe I'm so out of the loop I'm confused but yeah.

I seriously hope that one day she'll make a oneshot centered on them (i think she did say she wanted to do one about Roy one day) and maybe elaborate more on their relationship after the series end.

I think we should celebrate Canon Royai Day just like the traditional one on June 11 (posting fanarts, fics, etc.), it's just another day when we can celebrate that they're confirmed canon. biggrin.gif

@DistantBlue: That's what I also hope, that the FMA Chronicle will have a few more scenes with Roy and Riza that we didn't see in the manga yet . We only have to wait 3 months for that. ^^

@KimbleeWorshipper: Amazing pic of you and your boyfriend, your cosplays are great!

OHMYGOSH!! OHMYGOSH!! OHMYGOSH!!
This is the best news I have ever heard in my whole entire life~!!
Better than the time I passed my test for skipping a year in highschool!!!!

Hahahah! My dream actually came true! ( well sorta..xD)
Ok, I'm serious! I literally dreamt that Roy confessed his love to Riza!
And the only thing that I was ticked about that time,
other than it being all a dream, was that I WOKE UP! >.<
I tried to go back to sleep to see if it would continue to a wedding scene
but all I got was black and a headache...xP

But now it's real!! Way better than the dream!
I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. TwT
I kept reading the comment over and over again on Tumblr then I immediatetly came here to confirm if it was true.
What she said was just perfect. Arakawa-sensei you are just EPIC in every single way~!! <3

@Turdaewen
I agree with what you said from top to bottom! biggrin.gif
You have a really good point. If fan-stuff is on June then we won't have anything new for the next
"Cannon Royai Day"
hmmm...*brainstorms*

@RoyxRizaFan OMG! That pic made me squee and blush 10 shades of red! That was so adorable! thank you so much for sharing ^///^

@KimbleeWorshipper You and your boyfriend look really cute together~! Can't get over how you guys look so like them! Epic job! xD

@ KimbleeWorshipper - OMG, really? XDDD This just reached a whole new level of epic...honestly, you and your boyfriend were *no surprise* the best picture I took the whole weekend...no, ever, I mean XDDD I absolutely love you guys for that!! Best Roy/Riza cosplay pic I've ever taken by far!!!

@ Dark-Winds - Gah, how did I not know that was you?? XDDDD I love that we were fangirling about RoyAi that whole time and didn't even know we shared the same (epic) forum...that is amazing XD Imagine if we had known about this canon news then, how much crazier we would have been!! laugh.gif (and your cosplay was not lame, it made me giggle for the epic improvising!)

I'm so excited about all this, not only because RoyAi is canon, because in our dedicated little RoyAi hearts we knew that already, but because Arakawa has confirmed it just adds to the amazing...and makes it easier to win arguments against nonbelievers XP

<js589: Edited for use of a certain word or two. Please be careful! smile.gif >

Okay, while we've been pretty good about this, I'm going to pull a Tombow here and insert a special plea:

I know we're all excited. Like, really, monumentally, crazily excited. But, if you're going to mention anything specifically concerning the news about (or the actual words) Arakawa's confirmation of Royai being canon, PLEASE use spoiler tags for at least that much! If you can't decide what's okay and what's not, just ask myself or another mod, and we will try to help! Not everyone has had the chance to look at this newest artbook, and so, as a consideration, I'm going to reiterate my plea.

Thank you for your understanding, and now, back to our regularly scheduled fangirling/fanboying/general euphoria. smile.gif

Couldn't get back here for a day or so (I was distracted working on The Game of Three Generals), but wow, thank you for all the welcomes! I recognize some of these names, and being recognized in return makes me all giddy.

Of course, the entire content of this THREAD has made me giddy. Love that picture! And @Turdaewen, I completely agree with everything you said, to the point where I had to double check that I didn't write it myself!

I did want to let everyone know that, as a registered addict over at TV Tropes, I pretty much ran over to the FMA pages to update them with the glorious news. Everything's hidden under their spoiler tags, of course, but it's there! It's mentioned once in the main page and once in Riza's character profile.
