Volume 15's cover has been revealed. No word on the spine. Bets are on Hughes, Kimbley, or Envy.
Yesterday, while I was trying to sleep, for some reason (go figure...
) I started to think, among other things, of Volume 15 and I thought of 2 things.
The 1st one is sth I forgot to comment back then: that I hope Hughes makes it to the spine... even if for some (pessimist?) reason I tend to believe Kimbley will be the one to appear
U. I think both of them are important enough to deserve a spine, indeed (same goes for Envy), but, unlike Kimbley, who still has much to say in the story (same goes for Envy, again), I don't think Hughes gets many more chances to "shine"... what with him being dead and all
U... And since here he had quite an important role, I think now is his time.
Therefore, Hughes for spine! ( >o<)-o
Whatever, just a little ranty opinion I wanted to share. \( u_u)/
And, number 2 would be... the inner spine. From not having anyone dead on the last 3 volumes, we move onto one with more corpses than all the other ones altogether x_x so... who do you think will make it there? or how will it be?
Possibilities I came up with:
- Only the important characters are shown: Hawkeye sensei (from Roy and Riza's Flashback-within-the-flashback
U), the Rockbells... Scar's Brother? (he wasn't shown dying though...
there might be sth there. Or not.) etc.
Even with only that, it makes up already for a quite full one... x_x And, considering how Arakawa drew also the animals from the island or the people from Devil's Nest, the other possibility I thought of would be...
- A blackout. That is, sth like all the souls going to heaven altogether, the picture so full it would just be some black blob/s. Or some note saying... "so many deaths we couldn't fit them all here" or similar, just like volume 7's read "all the people in Devil's Nest. Too many to draw them all".
So? Your ideas?
Oh, and, for the record, I also noticed no one died for volume 16 -IIRC-...
Unless you count the chimera used to fake Marcoh's "death"... So another empty spine, it is, I guess.
Where's the fun, then?
EDIT: little touches for a better
