I loved this chapter
By the time the next chapter comes out, the new animes series will have started
So there's two things to look forward to.
Wow, I didn't even think about that! Now I'm even more impatient, lol.@Claudius
- Perhaps, Roy will take care of Envy most of the way, and Ed will combo up with Toad!Chimera to freeze him, thus giving him no chance to absorb more Zombies, Dolls, whatever they're being called, while they finish him off.
I like the Armstrong siblings fighting Sloth... but I wanted to see an epic fencing match between Olivier and Wrath...maybe still???
So, with Pride's words about Kimblee living on in him, does that mean that Gluttony can still be said to be alive? That would mean his punishment is starting...being forced to eat rat, toads, and snakes. Kimblee has to qualify as one of those. If Pride gets the chance he'll devour any of the other homunculi, because he's Pride, he can't let any of the others survive over him, and he's more than likely on his way back to central to devour some Zombies/Dolls. Eh, it was probably just a metaphor, and it wouldn't be unlikely that Gluttony ate some actual rats, toads, and snakes during all his battles.
I think the snakes are the Zombies/Dolls, because Sloth's punishment is to be thrown in the snake pits. These things are quick, and when Sloth is focusing on one thing he seems to have a one track mind...he'll end up surrounded by those things.
The fact that we have no clue where Wrath is, or what he is doing is bugging me, and will he tell his wife what he is if he sees her before his final battle.
I also want to see Grumman and Miles again. It would be entertaining to see Grumman battle Wrath. Page 16
& Page 17
...I literally could not stop staring, and I was thinking about seeing it animated.
As for Olivier and Alex squabbling mid fight...so like siblings to do that when faced with high stress situation.
I adore Olivier's face when the soldier asks if the Dolls are Briggs soldiers...
I'm shooting them, but they don't go away...
Therefore, they must be Briggs soldiers! XD
This manga still reminds me of Frankenstein...when you bubble it all down, for each main character it was the thirst for knowledge and immortality that created the whole mess.
Roy and Riza banter <3
These last two chapters have place extra emphasis on the uselessness of guns...First, Olivier throwing away her borrowed gun with a look if disdain, her telling Alex, the soldier saying shooting the Dolls doesn't work, and Hawkeye mentioning it. I doubt Arakawa felt the need to mention it so many times, because she feels like we just won't pick up on the fact that they won't work, we learned that long ago with Gluttony and Lust.
I'm glad May is safe(for now), but I'm also glad Scar seems to be chastising her.
Thanks to everyone that brought this chapter to us!
