If there's one thing I will never understand, it's how new people ever manage to find and uproot such old threads.


And then it's completely off-topic. rolleyes.gif

I agree, I should end when it end without the rush and all thing fitting perfectly. Actually, that's why I love when you re-read it you see all the little hits and foreshadowing.

We even see Izumi and Sig at the train station being Ed in central! Before, he evens goes to see her.

However, it is nice to have an idea of how long it will be just to see know when it will be over.
Like everybody else, I'll enjoy the ride until then!

Right now, I'm just kinda like.... get to the end already.
I don't know, I feel like somehow they're stalling.
I mean, I thought it was close to the end, like, 10 chapters ago.
I don't want this to be another Naruto or Bleach or Dragon Ball... or any other never ending manga.
I hate to say it, but I want a final battle already.

I am personally thinking we are going to get between 110-115 chapters. I see twelve to seventeen chapters a good amount to wrap up the story. But of course, I'm not Arakawa, and it should end when it ends as long as its done well and the way she wants.

Although I admit I am kinda at the point where I want the main battles to occur and then the end comes with the stuff that ties everything together. Even though I have only read it for about a year compared to a lot of you who have read it for, like, 3-5 years, LOL. That's mostly because I too feel that Arakawa is stalling for the last 5 chapters.

I am not sure how people think Arakawa is stalling with the only villains left at this point being Father, Bradley, Pride, and I guess Truth (if you count him.) It hardly feels like she is stalling to me. And of course we have to deal with Al getting his body back.

Everyone is in Central or heading towards there so it is obvious to me that we are already in the final battle. All these fights we are seeing are pretty much the final battles of the series. It's pretty clear that the story is heading towards its conclusion. Now I don't know how many more chapters are left but I wouldn't want to see the story rushed just so we can get to an end. I am sure Arakawa knows what she is doing.

Anyways Bleach is 365 chapters, Naruto is 455 chapters, FMA is 97 chapters. Even taken into account that FMA is a monthly series I hardly see how these series can be compared. FMA is quite average when it comes to the length of shounen series.

I bets 108chapters or anything close to that, I don't think it will be less and if it is not by much, because it seems that there is still a lot left to be explained and tied up, whatever the climax will be is still to come and that will probably take a lot of chapters, the build up to the climax i think should be a few more chapters, the conclusion and everything else, yeah 108 at least i think

^On another forum I belong to, some people were predicting that the manga will end at 108 chapters because apparently the number 108 has some significance in Buddhism, but I don't know how religious Arakawa is tongue.gif Anyway, I'm personally hoping for 110+ since there's a lot of stuff to wrap up with each character's conflict.

omg lol really? XD well 8 is my favourite number (born on the 8th) and other lucky/favoured numbers are 64 and 108, so i placed my guess at 108, maybe the Budism thing is because Buddah was born on April 8th (<--MY BIRTHDAY TOO! XD lol)

Anyway ye I agree, I'd like over 110 chapters just because FMA is too awesome to end, and I'm sure Arakawa won't leave things unexplained, such as scars name and Roy's heritidge im hoping to be explained, how father was created in the flask aswell as loads of other things, aswell as the climax and resoloution. I think 108 would be the right length for everything to be tied up, but we'll see, Arakawa may have some massive twist planned that may suddenly lengthen the plot or something.

I still think people are expecting too much... Scar's name will certainly come on the table somehow, even if Arakawa doesn't reveal it. I'm not quite sure about how Homonculus came to life. And I'm adamant that Roy's origins will not be explored since they bring nothing to the plot, Roy doesn't care and Madame Christmas was good enough of a mother to raise Roy like he is now, so no need to know more tongue.gif

Well.... I guess 'good' things like Naruto or FMA shouldn't be rushed so I'm fine (just as long as it doesn't get an over run like one piece)

I guess it'll last for 120 chapters... Hopefully... laugh.gif

I remember reading somewhere that Arakawa was trying to end FMA soon, so she actually couldn't draw some scenes and stuff that she had wanted to.... sleep.gif so it will probably end soon.

I'm thinking at least 105 chapters because she has to begin the Father v.s. Hoenheim showdown and kill off Pride, Wrath, sum up Ling's story, Ed and Al's story, Roy's story and somehow link them all together. She can't do that by chapter 100. No way.

At this rate the anime studios will be ready to animate the last episodes before Arakawa is even finished.

They're virtually halfway through all the existing manga material already...by episodes 23. If the current pace continues they'll definitely be ready to animate the parts of the story that are happening now by maybe the end of this year or the start of next year (remember animation studios are working on episodes months before they air on TV, with a bunch of teams working on different episodes at once. It's the only way to get episodes out at a weekly schedule).

I think the only way the anime can go on a weekly basis and still follow the manga to the end is if Arakawa ends the story by chapter 104. Otherwise they'll have to either make up their own ending or do a "temporary" ending and finish the series with a movie, like last time around...except this time canon.
