Thank you so much for the preview page AnimeOldTimer! It looks like we are in for some good old Prince Ling and Ed interaction. Heh, it looks like Ling took no time at all consuming their food rations. (I kind of like how Ling says "I'm a homunculus so nonchalantly.) I am kind of curious to see if Ling is finally free from "possession" by Greed; I wonder if he can be fully trusted now. Hopefully, we will get to see the military gang in this chapter.as well I am also kind of interested to know the current statuses of all the secondary characters. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the preview summary and raw.
Alchemical
Thanks for the preview, Animeoldtimer!

I'm glad to see Ed and Ling talking without trying to kill each other again. xD I wonder if Roy, Riza, and the others will return in this chapter... *crosses fingers*

Thanks a bunch! i want to see the raw soon ^^ I don't read the summaries to avoid spoilers T.T
The Frozen Alchemist
Thanx!
The translation should be out in 6-9 days.
Animeoldtimer
You're all welcome!

Is that sarcasm I sense? happy.gif or are you referring to the scantlation?
ehxhfdl14
Ah, Ling. It just seems so natural that he'd consume so much of someone else's food like that...lol.
I will be depending on a scanlation group to make this chapter readable for me, as always tongue.gif

I don't know what you mean.
Animeoldtimer
I was referring to your comment about it taking 6-9 days. Usually its less than that, but it seems like it's longer. Usually, we get the Raw about the 12th of the month and someone has a translation around the 13th. The scanlation takes longer of course because it takes more work. I'm sorry, I'm just a bit flustered today. I am actually very grateful to have people to scan and translate the chapters for us. If I only knew Japanese I would do the same thing.
jacksparrow589
YESSSS! Ling's eating everyone's food again! There's hope yet! And possibly some more comic relief on the way, too, seeing as it's Ed and Ling having a conversation.

On a different note, I do hope we get to see what's happening with everyone else soon. I know it's called "FullMetal Alchemist", but there are other characters in it, too!
Tombow
Thanks, Animeoldtimer for the preview page!! ^^


Chapter 83 Preview Spoiler Summary!!!!
Translated from the summary by a blogger who already read the chapter in Japan, on this Japanese site. ^^


Chapter 83, "Day of Promise" (This is a very very tentative chapter title till I read the real chapter. ^^)

Caption on the side: Reunited with Ed, and he is not Greed, but Ling...

It's Ling who showed up in front of Ed. Ling took control of his body back when Greed was in mental turmoil.
Ling tells Ed that Father will open the Door on the Day that's coming sometime in the near future.
He suggests that if Ed and Al would jump into the gate then they may both get their bodies back.
He wants to continue talking, but Greed is coming back and starting to take over the body.
But, before Greed takes over, Ed learns of "Day of Promise".
Ling is happy to know that his message to RanFan was safely passed on to her.
Then, Greed takes back the control of the body again.

Greed is not fighting Ed. He is simply leaving the scene.
After that attack of Bradley during his mental turmoil, he does not know what happens if he goes back to the Central underground. So, he decides to just go away.

Seeing that, Ed offers Greed to join Ed and the gang.
Although being surprised of Ed's suggestion, Greed is tempted. But, he declines and leaves.

Now being alone, Greed mutters that even with many souls within him, he feels empty.
Ling entices Greed that if Greed gives back the control of the body to Ling, he will become the Emperor of Xing, and fill that emptiness.
Greed tells that it's small being a leader of one country, why not becoming a leader of the whole world....

While they are talking to each other, Ed catches up.
Ed tells that he can't let his emotion run and miss this chance and the vast information. Hence, he would let Greed be the boss if Greed would agree to join them.
Greed agrees.


Central. At the Armstrong residence.
Olivier is talking with her father. She requests her father to yield the position as the head of the family to her, and retire to the foreign country.
The father tells Olivier that he is intending to pass on the position to Alex.

Alex happens to be there. Olivier and Alex fight over the position.
While they are fighting, the father is busy getting ready for his vacation abroad.
Olivier comes out as an winner of the fight.

Alex questions Olivier why she has joined the group of upper Army officers.
Olivier answers that so that she can see and judge about them herself.
"And, seeing them by yourself is resulting in your suggesting our father to escape to other country for safety?" asks Alex.
Olivier smiles back.


Dublith. At Sig's meat shop.
The military soldiers keep visiting the meat shop in search of Izumi. Mason deals with them and send them back empty handed, then communicates with Sig. He passes on the message from Al and Hohenheim about the "Day of Promise."


Briggs fort. There is Izumi.
Someone attacks the sentry soldier.
Asked who's there, the voice answers, "A wife."

With the report of the attack, Miles and Buccaneer head to the brig where the attacker is being held. Izumi awaits them there, as meeting them was the reason for her attack of the soldier.
She passes on the message from Al about the "Day of Promise," and other information.


Farther on, the information is passed on from Buccanear to Falman, then Falman to General Grumman in the East Headquarters.

General Grumman passes on the information to a Second Lieutenant, Hawkeye's friend, Rebecca.

Second Lieutenant Rebecca goes shopping with her friend, First Lieutenant Hawkeye, and they have a nice friendly chat while shopping.

After shopping with her friend Rebecca, Hawkeye pays a visit to Havoc in the hospital.


Havoc tells Hawkeye that once his body condition becomes stable he intends to move to the military hospital in the East army. Hawkeye gives him cigarettes as a care package.

Hawkeye leaves.
From behind the curtain in the Havoc's hospital room, Mustang appears.
Havoc tells Mustang that he didn't have to hide behind the curtain. Mustang answers that with eyes on both of them it's better to be cautious and avoid having personal contacts in private setting.

Havoc offers Mustang the cigarettes just given by Hawkeye.
Havoc pulls a cigarette from the package half way so that Mustang can pull out one easily from the package.... the one with the message on the rolling paper.
Thus, Mustang learns about the "Day of Promise."


Thus, after the year turns to the next one and comes next Spring, on that promised Day, the Eastern army will make the move, the Northern army will make the move.....

The day of showdown is approaching.....!!!!


(End of chapter 83)
---------------------------------------


OMG, "The Day" is approaching!! I get goosebumps!! ohmy.gif
And, I love how the information is getting passed on in this chapter!!
I can't wait to read this chapter!!!

I have to go now, but I'll be back and correct typos and whatnot later, but the translations are pretty much accurate. ^^
Sannom
What's that nonsense about the siblings fighting for the position laugh.gif ?!? Lol, that's great Arakawa to me biggrin.gif

Hum, Lin is gonna be influenced by that silly Homonculus and will end up losing everything if he continues like that : his ambition, his friends, his servants. It's with this kind of scene that I seriously think that May will be the one who will gain the Emperor's trust in the end dry.gif
Cherry Blossom Alchemist
EPIC ohmy.gif







EDIT: Btw, thanks for the summary translation as always Tombow! And good luck on your exams if you havent done them already!
ehxhfdl14
Tombow, thank you for the translations as always. This chapter is... wow. The end really is approaching, isn't it? I can't wait for the chapter, either smile.gif

I would offer to correct the translation, but sadly I'm burnt out from beta'ing thirty-something pages this weekend on four hours of sleep D:
Tombow
Thanks ehxhfdl14. Your thought counts. ^^ Although, I think the translations are pretty accurate. XD But the typos and syntax errors can use some corrections. I'm on short sleep because of the exams and papers also, so I bet typos are bad this time. XD I'll come and check them later. ^^

I forgot to mention...
Roy will be back!! And HAVOC!!!! Nice to see him again!!!!
Alchemical
Thanks for the translation, Tombow!

This chapter is... woah. It's epic. Ehxhfdl14 is right, the end's getting really close.
Winry Chan
Thank you, Tombow! Wow - Ed being nice and letting Greed take charge? O_O
Causmicfire
Thanks for the translation, Tombow! I'm very excited for this chapter. We get Roy, Riza, and Havoc! So much to look forward to.
jacksparrow589
Thanks a million for the translation, Tombow!

Oh wow, now I'm SERIOUSLY EXCITED! I just did yard work all day and am physically on the way to sleep, but now that I've read this, I'm going to be too excited to let myself go to bed early!

I think things are going to come to a head very quickly from here on out (i.e. Day of Promise starts occurring withing the next... say... five chapters), and that's very exciting, but also maddening because we have to wait a month between chapters, and it's depressing because it's coming to an end! ('Course, I've been saying that for the past... lots... of chapters, but now, I really do think that the end of FMA is near.)

*fangirl squee* I CAN'T WAIT!

I'd like to know exactly where you acquired this information? Who's your source that says she's doing 100 chapters and is your source legit?

Other than that, YAY! Roy and Hawkeye are back! And Ling! I'm so GLAD he's pulled out his "Ling" side while with Ed! Hooray! This looks to be a promising chapter! I can't wait! >.<

Tombow, thank you so much for the preview translation happy.gif Now we wait for the raw!

Actually, I think Arakawa said there'd be around 100 chapters. It was going around this forum before, but I can't remember the thread. D: But that's what most people are going by.

Yes, I believe she said around 100 chapters. Didn't that come up in the "FMA Manga Ending" thread last year?
It'd be a bit of a pain to dig it up now XP

Welcome to the board, noodlenouille! smile.gif

*Paces for a few minutes* ..... dry.gif I hate waiting. Anyone have any clue as to when this one is coming?



Causmicfire I love your bio pic, classic laugh.gif

I feel really happy about this chapter. The missing characters are back, Greed joins the gang, and LOL Olivier laugh.gif

I'm really hoping to see more Roy and Riza scenes in the next chapters. And I wish May would show up very soon. smile.gif


Thanks for the translation Tombow! happy.gif

Thank you very much Sto and Cherry Blossom Alchemist for the raw! I was anticipating the raw to come out a bit latter, but this is a pleasant surprise. Thank you Tombow for both your summary translation and your translation of the raw. This looks like one heck of a great chapter; I am getting anxious waiting for the raw to download to my computer. (All right, I am looking at the raw now and I have to say that page 24 makes me happy. Izumi is the scariest housewife ever. Sig must be proud.)
Tombow
Ok, here we go... (For now, this is my quick translation, and subject to editing later... ^^)


Chapter 83: "The Day of Promise" (This is still a tentative title ^^)
(Page by page view is courtesy of sto)

Page 1 (Click for the view of the each page, click again on + for the enlarged view of the page)
Tons of empty food containers....
Ling: "Bhaaaaah!!"
------------------------
Ling: "Finally, coming to my senses! Thanks! That was good!"
Ed: "As usual, you eat like a horse, damn it."
Lion Chimera guy: "He emptied out all our emergency rations."
Caption on the side: Reunited, and he is not Greed, but Ling...
------------------------
Ling: "And, those fellows are your company?"
Ed: "This is Mr. Gorilla, and..."
Monkey Chimera: "I'm Darīus."
Lion Chimera: "I'm Heinkel."
------------------------
Heinkel: "We used to belong to the Army, but now we are accompanying this kid."
------------------------
Heinkel (Lion Chimera) to Ed: "Who is this one?"
Ed: "Ummm, how should I explain..."
Ling: "I'm a homunculus."
Ed: "Yeah, he is homun... Eh?" "You can just say like that?"


Page 2
Darīus (Monkey Chimera): "Homunculus... Are you serious?"
Ed: "Yeah... It's a long story, but yes, it's true."
----------------------------
Ed: "Why are you here?"
SFX (In small letters) You surprised the heck out of me.
Ling: "Greed cut the tie with Homunculi gang, and I took over the control of my body again during his mental turmoil."
---------------------------
Ling: "I thought about a place to hide out near Central and this place was... " "Eh!!"
SFX Agh...
---------------------------
Ed: "What's happening?"
Ling: "This is not good......"
---------------------------
Ling: "Greed is appearing again..."
Ed: "Hey, hey, hey. Wait, wait!!"
Heinkel: "?" "What?"


Page 3
Ed: "Fight! Don't lose! Stay with us!"
SFX Bonk Bonk Bonk Bonk
SFX (Ling) "......."
----------------------------
Ling: "Listen, Ed!"
----------------------------
Ling: "That so-called 'Father' who is in the underground Central," "He is going to open the door on the forthcoming THAT day!"
----------------------------
Ling: "This is just my guess as an amateur, but..." "Maybe, if you two brothers would jump in there then, you both might be able to get back your bodies again?"
---------------------------
Ed: "...!!"


Page 4
Ed: "Eh, wait," "That could be so, but......" "To open the door, the passing fee will be required, and..."
---------------------------
Ed: "That one, why is he opening the door?" "What about the 'the forthcoming that day'? Is there a certain day to open the door?"
Ling: "That is..."
---------------------------
SFX Zap
SFX (Ling) "...!"
Ling: "Aw?!"
---------------------------
Ed: "Ling?! Hey!!"
Ling: "This is not good..." "Damn... Don't you show up yet..."
---------------------------
Ling: "The message..."
Ed: "?"
---------------------------
Ling: "Have you given..." "My message to RanFan?"


Page 5
Ed: "Your message...?" "Ah! That one!"
---------------------------
Ed: "Yes, Al gave that to her!" "RanFan is safe!" "Although, I don't know where she is now..."
---------------------------
Ling: "I see..." "That is good..."
---------------------------
Ling: "Ugh..."
Ed: "Ling?!"
---------------------------
Ling: "Sorry... That one's consciousness is becoming stronger..." "I can no longer...."
---------------------------
Ling: "...stay out....
---------------------------
(Greed is coming back)


Page 6
Greed: "....Hmmm" "Ah..."
---------------------------
Greed: "That damn Xing prince... Blabbing out things unnecessarily."
Ed: "!"
---------------------------
Ed: "Greed?'
Greed: "That's right."
---------------------------
Greed: "Hey hey, stop it." "You can't kill me with that thing."
---------------------------
Greed: "Excuse me to have intruded you."
Ed: "H.. hey!"
--------------------------
Ed: "Are you going to let us go?"
Greed: "Huh? Let you go?"



Page 7
Greed: "As the other one has just told you," "I cut the tie with Homunculi gang." "I had a confusion with my memory, and attacked Bradley."
---------------------------
Greed: "Now, I have no idea what will happen if I go back. Therefore, I decided to just walk away and...."
---------------------------
Greed: "I'm going to live as I please by myself." "Bye."
----------------------------
Ed: "Then, wouldn't you like to join us?"


Page 8
Ed: "If you don't have a place to go, come with us."
----------------------------
Greed: "What kind of silly talk is that." "You know I am a homunculus, right?"
Ed: "Heh! If you want to talk about that, these guys are Chimeras!"
Darīus and Heinkel: "Whoa, you..."
SFX (Ed) Heh
----------------------------
Ed: "I don't make a big deal if the person is not a normal human!"
SFX (Darīus) He just blurted out about our secret...
----------------------------
Ed: "...Aw, wait. Um? Am I the only normal human here? I am the minority?"
Heinkel: "As I said, stop inviting every abnormal ones you encounter to be your company at the whim."
---------------------------
Heinkel: "Let me be clear. We came along with you only because we didn't like the way Kimbley has treated us. That's all!" "If you'll let it come to your head, we will just walk away and leave you alone behind, get it, kid?!"
--------------------------
Greed: "Be your company, you say...?" "Company, huh?" "That's a good one!"


Page 9
Greed: "Don't be fool!" "I'm going to own everything in this world!"
----------------------------
Greed: "If you are going to be my underlings, then I will consider joining your gang."
SFX Creak Creak Creak Creak
----------------------------
SFX creak creak creak creak
----------------------------
Darīus: "Should we let him walk away?"
Heinkel: "He may change his mind, and let our enemies know about us here."
Ed: "It will be fine."
----------------------------
Ed: "That one doesn't lie."


Page 10
Ed: "...........'The forthcoming THAT Day' ?"
-----------------------------
Ed: "That beard bastard is going to open the Door...?" "Is he?"
----------------------------
(Meantime...)
----------------------------
Greed: "I wonder why..." "Inside me are so many souls. Yet, ever since that turmoil with my memory, I feel empty inside myself."
---------------------------
Greed: "I am..." "Alone."
---------------------------
Ling: "Then, you should join Ed and the gang."


Page 11
Ling: "Or, if you don't like that option, give me back the control of this body." "I will become the Emperor of Xing and fill in your emptiness."
---------------------------
Greed: "Becoming the leader of a country, you say..."
---------------------------
Ling: "It's a big ambition, isn't it?"
---------------------------
Greed: "Ha! You, kid!" "That's small, small!"
---------------------------
SFX (Ling) "Ding"
---------------------------
Greed: "If you're going to be a leader...
SFX Grin

Greed: "How about becoming a leader of this whole world?"
----------------------------
Ed: "He~y" "He~~y!"

Ed: "Hey, Ling!" "Wait!"
Greed: "What, you again?


Page 13
Greed: "I told you. I am Greed."
Ed: "Yeah, yeah, Ling, or Greed, whichever." "How about calling you GreeLing!"
Greed: "...Whom are you calling GreeLing?"
-----------------------------
Ed: "I will become your underling."
-----------------------------
Greed: "....................................Huh?"
-----------------------------
Ed: "I'm saying, I will be your underling. " "And, that means, these guys who are following me will be your underlings also!"
Darīus and Heinkel: "Huh?!"
----------------------------
Darīus: "You damn kid, what are you deciding without even asking us?!" "Who are you referring to by ones 'following you'?"

askljasdkjXD awesome chapter! Oh, and Ed still has her earrings/incoherency



¿?
How is that incoherence? huh.gif

She gave them to him before they separated and they haven't met since...

I... don't know what to think about this chapter...

On one hand it was very well executed. Gotta love seeing all those characters back, even surprise Rebecca appearance! And the putting the title at the very end (don't spoil it putting it at the beginning, Tombow tongue.gif ) was a really masterful touch, indicating that things are gonna get serious from now on, that this chapter was but its own prologue but...

On the other hand this time it felt so friggin' fast it's not funny. The damn message travelled all around the country in a blink of an eye!
Yes I know that time has passed whatsoever, but still....

Greeling is made of awesome and badass, and he's back where he belongs, but... There goes another one that changed sides so quickly and easily...

Eh, it's going right but at the same time giving me an unpleasant feeling.

Dur. ( ·_.)


Oh, and talking of incoherences/plot holes.
Too early to say it is one (still lacking full translation and all), but... out of the whole message transmitting chain, I missed one part: How did Al and Hohenheim get back in contact with ever-traveling Izumi and Sig? blink.gif
Guess you could say they gave Hoho a contact number... but that doesn't quite convince me.

I guess Hohenheim and Al send the message to Mason, then Sig makes periodic contacts to Mason and get the message? ^^

I thought it was the other way at the first read.

It's as you say indeed. happy.gif
However, how convenient for them to be going north. Maybe they had told Hoho about that already, though.

Soldier2: We don't know!
Base: How many units?
Soldier2: One!

Point P, respond!
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU FIGHTING?!

Izumi: A housewife <3
SFX: HYUOOOOOOOOO

Soldier2: ....you heard her...

Page 25:
Miles: Frontier troops ramdomly assaulted by a mystery woman?
Sounds exactly like that incident about 20 years ago...
Buccaneer: And it had to happen while Major General Armstrong is gone...
SFX: Step step step step step

Buccaneer: If she comes back now, we're dead meat.
SFX: SWING

SFX: Clink

Izumi: Ah, the Ishvalan with the black sunglasses and ponytail, and the giant with a mohawk.
Just like the descriptions.

Page 26:
Izumi: I've been waiting for you two.
Miles: Who the hell are you, lady?

Izumi: Just a simple houswife passing through the area
who has a message for you from Al!

Can we speak in private?
There things you need to know about the "Promised Day."

Falman: It's about the "Promised Day..."

That's right, General Grumman.

Grumman: Ho ho ho!

Page 27:
Grumman: The "Promised Day!"
Beeeeeeeeautiful.

Things are getting more and more interesting.
SFX: Smile!

SFX: Bang

SFX: KACHICK

Grumman: Yoo-hoo! Your butt's as tight as ever, Becky!
SFX: Slap
Rebecca: EEEEK!
SFX: BANG

Page 28:
Rebecca: What do you think you're doing, General Grumman!

Grumman: Muhahaha...You can't let ANYTHING distract you on the battlefield, you know!

You're friends with Lieutenant Hawkeye, aren't you?

SFX: Chug chug chug
Bubbles: Blah blah

Rebecca: Yooooo, Riza!
How's it going?

Hawkeye: Nice to see you, Rebecca.
Hayate: Arf!

Page 29:
Rebecca: So they postponed the North/East joint winter training until the spring.

You heard about how they got into a rumble with Drachma up there, right?
Things are still iffy, so they're halting all non-essential exercises.

AND they moved the operation out East, so they'll be doing the join training out our way next time.
Riza: Hunh...

Rebecca: So since I'll be busy as hell during the spring, I thought I'd take a little vacation and kick up my feet while I

have the chance!

Are you getting enough leave time?

Riza: I suppose...
Actually, I earn more now than when I worked for the Colonel.

Rebecca: Hunh...jumping from Colonel Mustang to the Fuhrer...
How exactly are you tricking people into promoting you like this, Lt. Riza Hawkeye?
Riza: I'll thank you not to imply I didn't earn them, Lt. Rebecca Catalina.

Page 30:
Riza: Aren't you Lieutenant General Grumman's favorite?
Rebecca: Please, I'm being sexually harassed to the point where I can't even work!
I hate men who don't do their job!

SET ME UP WITH A NICE CENTRAL GUY, RIZA!
Riza: Here, he's a nice male.

Rebecca: Male...
SFX: Slurp

Rebecca: Hayateeeeeeeee! Your master is so cold-hearted!!
SFX: YIPE YIPE YIPE YIPE YIPE
Hawkeye: You're not going to miss your train, are you?
Tower SFX: Gonnnnng

Rebecca: I'll show you! I'll land a real hunk and retire early!
Hawkeye: Riiiight...good luck.

Rebecca: Oh, tell 2nd Lieutenant Havoc I said "hi!"

Page 31:
Hawkeye: Roger that.
Rebecca: Later!

Hayate: Arf?

SFX: Jingle

Hawkeye: Say hi to Havoc...
Yes...

I've got plenty of time, and I haven't visited him in a while.

Havoc: They're thinking of moving me to the Eastern Hospital once I'm a little more stable.

Page 32:
Hawkeye: That's too bad, we'll all miss you.
Havoc: Well, it's close to my family, so they'll be happy.

Hawkeye: Well, I'm glad I came by today, then.

Here's a present.
One per day, all right?
Havoc: Whoo, thank you! I JUST ran out!

Hawkeye: Oh, Rebecca says hi.
Havoc: Uh huh!

Oh yeah, have you seen the Colonel lately?
Hawkeye: Not really.
Just a few casual conversations in the cafeteria.

Tell him I said hi if he comes by.
SFX: Kreeeee

Page 33:
Havoc: Gotcha.
SFX: SLAM, step step step step step

Havoc: See, Colonel?
She totally knew.
SFX: Flap

Havoc: You didn't have to hide.
Mustang: We're both being observed very carefully.
I don't want to give Bradley any more reason to suspect us.

...I see YOU'RE not worried.
Havox SFX: Suuuu-Aaaaaahhh...

Havoc: Want a smoke, Colonel?
Mustang: No thanks, I don't-

Havoc: Aww, come on. Take one for the road.

Page 34:
Mustang: ...Sure, why not.

It'll remind me of my youth.
SFX: Slip

Mustang: Central's gotten cold again.

SFX: Slip

Mustang: After the new year...

Page 35:
Boxes: After the new year...next spring...

Comes the Promised Day.

Page 36:
Box: The North and the East will make their move!
sto
Tombow and HisshouBuraiKen thank you for the translation~!
This chapter is great!
And with a special ending


The problem in the manga helper is fixed biggrin.gif
I feel sorry, because I posted this raw at other forums about 3-4 hours before(at 18:27[GMT+8 hours]) I did it here, but someone took it and upload at other places, so that KaNx don't know the raw is by me
With the problem of SS, the larger file(13 MB) cannot be download(may be someone can got it), so that the one most people have is the smaller one(5.5MB)
I will try once more to fix it later rolleyes.gif

YESSSSS! Awesome chapter! Thanks for the translations, guys! I can't WAIT! *fangirl squee*

(This gave me a big energy boost after the AP Chem test I took today. That was... ugh...)
Animeoldtimer
Thank you everyone for bringing the manga to us! biggrin.gif

This was a good chapter. It had a little bit of something for everyone. I loved the Armstrong fight along with the parents in the background discussing retirement plans-That was classic!

My favorite comment was from Ed:

"Ed: WHAT?! I'm not short! I just live in a big world, goddammit!"

Did Grumman smack Rebecca on the butt?
askljasdkjXD awesome chapter! Oh, and Ed still has her earrings /incoherency



¿?
How is that incoherence? huh.gif



Sorry, I think I confused you. I meant /incoherency as in end my incoherent little ramble, since my mind wasn't fully functioning yet. I missed a space there, my keyboard needs replaced DX


Thanks for translations Tombow and HisshouBuraiKen!

Hope all of you like it rolleyes.gif
I had a bad scanner, so that the pics are not clear dry.gif

The files from KaNx from Mangahelpers also are my files.
I feel a bit sad about KaNx has not posted the file is from here huh.gif


*pats* It happens. We all appreciate your hard work here, though! Thank you very much for scanning!
To be honest, I actually found these files on P2P networks before coming here and realized that you scanned them! Really, thank you so much!

I don't quite understand why there is problem with sendspace though. If you originally posted on a China forum, then this would be the case, because sendspace bans user from China from downloading from sendspace. Is that why people weren't able to download the 13MB version?

==========

Anyway, awesome chapter omg *o*
It totally gives the fill that "yup, the final battle is up. Everyone is ready!" thing...

I never expected Riza's friend Rebecca, who only appeared in the Red Gaiden to actually appear in the story! (I think...? I don't recall Rebecca appearing at all, except for that brief mention of her name in the SELIM BRADLEY IS HOMUNCULUS message...)

Finally, all the people I miss appeared!
Well, except for Gluttony... well, I don't exactly miss him... I am just curious about how he is doing XD; and he has got nothing to do with the "human" side anyways =P
Yay UselessRoy? 8D
I wonder where exactly is Scar and Marcoh? It seems they are in a desert... so maybe they are really heading to, or are at, wherever that place is called... uhh, where Ed met Maria Ross before she leaves for Xing?
Totally didn't expect Izumi to reappear like that! It's totally made of awesome-ness!
Greed and Lin's personality change reminds me of Yugioh!... XD lol the hairstyle
The part where Ed gets beaten up by the chimeras were very lol XD
And of course the fight between Alex and Olivier~~~ =w=

Too bad this chap is back down to 36 pages. OTL
