I actually believed that little theory myself, but really had no source to back it up. I always thought it convenient to be ahead of the game. Like, case in point, writing fanfics. I know of a lot of writers (including myself) who write wayyy ahead of what the readers see. And if that's the case ch. 108 and ep. 63 coming out roughly the exact same month make it much more convenient and positive to us as an audience.

And so if she is two chapters ahead of the game, then wouldn't that mean that she's perhaps done with 108 and just waiting out the next few months? Which in turn means... she's torturing us!!! jk XP. But on a serious note, I feel much more comfortable knowing that the animators and the manga panels are in check. smile.gif

@Chouchou I'm sorry though I don't believe I rejected it

more info and summaries of the episodes.

Mr. Deathy
Hmm, looks like Roy vs Envy is split up between 53 and 54, like the fight starts in one ep and continues in the next. I didn't really expect that and I don't think I like it being split up. I guess it's fine as long as both sections are awesome.

It doesn't sound like 56 covers up until chapter 99 either. I'm wondering now how the hell they'll get to chapter 104 (which they supposedly have based on director comments) by episode 59.

It'd require more than 2 chapter pacing for 57, 58 and 59 just to get them to the early parts of chapter 104 by episode 59.

Chapters 100-104 would be ruined by rushed pacing too.
deet-tastic
53 and 54 were seperate chapters. Not one.
And the episodes are named after the chapters respectively.
As for 59 being 104. I was wondering that myself. I think the fighting will be more fast paced, and will take less time regarding Greed and Wrath. Manga panels aren't fast paced. Intense action is.

Yes 94 and 95 were separate chapters.

However since 53 is titled "the Flames of Revenge" it does suggest it has some of the fight from chapter 94, but the summary mentions that episode 54 has some of chapter 94 too, so it sounds like Roy will be doing a some burning at the end of 53, then some at the start of 54. I preferred the idea of it all being contained in one intense episode.

Anyway it doesn't matter how fast paced Greed vs Wrath is. If 56 only goes up to chapter 97 or the start of 98, even if 57 blazes through the rest of the fight up to the end of 99 or start of 100, it only leaves episode 58 to somehow get through 100, 101, 102 and maybe some of 103, before episode 59 supposedly covers 104.

All of those chapters are packed full of important slow moving scenes, stuff that can never blaze past in animation unless it's cut to ribbons like the early episodes in the series.

I forget who even mentioned the fact the Director's blog made it sound like 59 would contain 104. Was it Tombow? If it was, could you please verify if it DEFINITELY seemed like that, or if it just seemed like it "might" cover that chapter?

Michiyo-
I donít think episode 59 will contain chapter 104. That would be too early, and the previous chapters would be rushed.
The directorís post on March 2 says that they started working on ep. 59, and he mentioned something about Alís appearance. So I think he was referring to chapter 102, when Al meets his body. But correct me if Iím wrong.

I think ep. 57 will cover part of chapter 99 and whole chapter 100, ep. 58 chapter 101 and the first half of chapter 102. Then the other half of 102 (the part with Al) should be in ep. 59. That's my guess.
Mr. Deathy
That sounds more reasonable. I just specifically remember someone like Tombow mentioning 59 covering the events of "last month's chapter" (at that point, 104)

Hmm, if they do cover up to just 102 by 59, that gives them 4 episodes after that to do from 103- (assuming it ends by then) 108. I guess it's do-able, but the pacing will still need to be pretty quick since the last few chapters have been almost twice the length of older chapters.

Usually I'm reading Irie-san's blog.
He mentioned about "the episode 59" in an article before a few days.
He seems to be checking the storyboard of episode 59 though, the content is the last month's newest chapter!!


from http://amber1003.deviantart.com/journal/30565523/ is how the chapter 104 in ep 59 idea came about.

My observation on the summaries is that the beginning sentence is always the start of each episode and the last sentence of the summary is the half mark of each episode.

55 seems to start at the start of Ch 96, and 56 seems to start at the start of Ch 97 - I don't see how Ch 96 will be an episode by itself, and there are scenes in Ch 98 that could be moved forward to 55 (Olivier/Izumi stuff). This fits in with the "Adults Way of Life" title, too.

So that's how 56 might be able to get into Ch 99 at least, meaning 57 as 99+100, 58 as 101+102, and 59 as 103+half of 104?. We'll see, I guess. smile.gif
deet-tastic
"Al's appearence" is what I remember reading.

It would make a heck of a lot more sense if 59 was 102. That actually sounds perfect to me.
59 might be a 1.5 episode. And cover part of 103. Which would leave 104 to 60.
Blargh. I don't know. I have faith bones won't kill the ending though. The past few episodes have been absolutely pefect for me. I can't see how it would go down hill and become horrible pacing.

We'll just have to wait and see, and hope on more info from the director.

Thank you, deet-tastic! biggrin.gif Yes, he is talking about the FINAL episode. sad.gif

As posted by deet-tastic above, on his blog entry by FMA:Brotherhood director, Yasuhiro Irie for Monday, April 12, 2010, he is roughly saying....

The direction for the final episode has been decided.
It will be a quite work cut out for us, beyond all our expectations.
But, this is the last time, so we want to do our best.


Or something like that. smile.gif

FailToImpress
As always, thank you Tombow! and deet-tastic for the link!
I didn't realise the Director had a blog. smile.gif

Very exciting though, and kind of sad. I don't want it to end!
SneakyRuler
I hope all the remaing episodes go well. There wasn't a major thing for BONES to be blamed for these last two months. I admit I was anxious before Xerxes episode as the Ishbal one hadn't fullfilled my expectations but since episode 37 there was nothing bad to be said about Brotherhood.

Now I'm a little scared 53 won't be as good as in manga. I know the director for that episode is amazing (heck, he did episodes 26 & 43, all of them have Envy as main focus and especially in 43 all the characters are drawn spot-on) but still... I've been looking forward to this moment so much I can't help it...
Broken Chouchou
Sounds promising enough. Glad to hear they feel they want to put effort into it biggrin.gif

And the director of next episode is the same one as for 26? ohmy.gif 26 is probably my favourite episode of the entire series so far, or at least one of them. I rank it very high.
deet-tastic
If the guy that did 26 is doing 53, I am not worried one bit. The art in 26 was amazing. (and the story)
This guy has handled some amazing episodes.

Thanks Tombow!

When I first read this, my reaction was "Oh no, they're going to do another anime-only ending!" but then reread it figured they only recently got their hands on the last chapter (108 if she's two ahead?) when I read "beyond all our expectations". :-P

i'm glad they are putting their best effort into this. :-)

Oh, and I had to check 26 and 43 again, and while 43 didn't really impress me, I LOVE the emotional impact, direction, and art in 26, and it is also in my list of Top 10 favorite episodes, so I am very confident 53 will be even better.
deet-tastic
The fact that it's beyond their expectations.... I think I just had a fangasm.

Found pictures of a longer preview for EP53. smile.gif



The preview was apparently on this http://www.youtube.com/v/jXyuuk7QBjA but it isn't available for the US. mellow.gif

And, if anyone was interested or didn't catch, I captured this image from the regular preview. smile.gif

SneakyRuler
Thank you!

Yes, you're right, youtube vercion does contain full lenght "next episode" preview instead of the short one seen on TV. It may be viewable on FUNIMATION channel, maybe, for the US (my theory, I can see this one, but can't view funimation channel in Europe, so maybe it works both ways...)

Usually the preview speech is just gibberish but I like this one "Burn them all" seems apropriate for the next episode. It looks every scene will follow manga. Yay!

I watched the preview on YouTube, and now I'm really looking forward to watching this episode. (And ep. 54 too.) But it's still 3 more days...

Finally got to see the EP 53 preview on Funimation's subs. I think I heard new music!
Kasumisty
I think they decided to create new soundtrack specifically for the Promised Day arc. Good to hear new tracks so often. Nice change.

Yes, this is true. I saw the 30-second preview on Funimation, but Vlyse's Youtube link just says it was blocked by Panini.
deet-tastic
I just checked out FUNi's.

Heck yes. That's all I have to say smile.gif
And the new music is very amazing.

Has an umm.. 104 feel to it.
Flamez_Freak
i hope they play that music in today's episode.......it was screaming epic.......and bones does have a liking towards roy...they surely know how to make him look absolutely kickass....and thankfully theyve got the right guy behind this episode.....royyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
ShadowCat17
hrmm...didn't hear the new music this time. maybe the next one.

Can't wait for Ep54. It's crazy that I can go from hating everything about Envy, to even sympathizing with him a bit by the very end. And the Royai moment is sure to be delicious. This page right here http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/95/09/ ooooohhhh plz don't mess it up bones! lol
Vlyse
Yeah, I think that new music track will play around those pages. (Somehow I knew what page that'd be before I clicked on it laugh.gif) Though I've read before the literal translation of "Don't go where I can't follow!" is actually really something like "Don't degrade yourself to the way of an animal". If that's true, I'll brace for a different line, I guess.
deet-tastic
There were alot of changes on the translations for that chapter I know.

But I think the "Don't go where I can't follow" line is legit.

I'm trying to put the "animal" line to the images and it doesn't add up..
Flamez_Freak
Didn't know where to post this , so i've posted it in two threads . . smile.gif smile.gif

And another thing i noticed from the preview , rearrangin Riza's 'Burn my back' scene from somewhere in the weakly done ishbal flashback to a part of the series , which has been excellently developed by bones is praiseworthy . . . And i think its gonna have more impact now . . . .

The raw said something close to, "Don't let yourself fall to that level", implying not to let Roy let himself become as low as an animal.

I really liked the "Don't go where I can't follow" translation, but not sure what Bones will do... sad.gif

Seconded! Well, there's always the possibility that they were just like, Woops, forgot to put that scene in... better stick it in the next episode. biggrin.gif
Mr. Deathy
I think the back burning was actually deliberately left until now. It's the most important thing that they've ever omitted really, because it's important character development. It was the weirdest Ishval scene to completely leave out.
deet-tastic
When I saw episode 30, and realized they left out that scene, I said to myself "they must be saving that for when Roy confronts Envy"
And sure enough...
So I had guessed it would be here when that episode came. And it shows and Ishval flashback in 54's preview.
I'm really excited for next episode smile.gif For that scene AND all the royai goodness.
Michiyo-
There's a new entry on the director's blog:
http://www5.diary.ne.jp/user/538725/
They're dubbing ep. 56 tomorrow. He says it has great battle scenes. (Well, it'll be the return of the FŁhrer. smile.gif)
And he mentioned something about the final storyboard.

And I found it on another blog that he has a Twitter account too.
http://twitter.com/IRICOMIX
So we can check this for news as well. biggrin.gif
deet-tastic
Sweet!! I'm excited for 56.

*follows on twitter
Mr. Deathy
I hope someone translates that stuff related to the last storyboards, it actually sounds like it might be relevant to the possibility of them using the manga ending, going by the garbled machine translation I used anyway.
amestris_star
And this makes me think they definitely know the ending... *gets nervous*

Thanks Michiyo for the info!
Hagaren_4ever
LOL, I don't speak Japanese, so I had to resort to Google Language Tools. XD

"Tomorrow is the 56-story steel dubbing. Great Battle time. Nearly full-length Battle. I, I see so many of the recent talk of such. The only power that staff have completely stunned. Conte has been the last round on track. I speed along. So the final version of the scenario yet, but lines are adjusted. Trend will continue to make first."

...is apparently what his latest entree on Twitter was. laugh.gif
Bag of Magic Food
And "steel" is another word for "full metal", right?
deet-tastic
Yeah, When it says "steel" it's referring to Fullmetal
Flamez_Freak
sounds exciting as usual......the director is a really nice guy , coz he keeps us updated...ahahahah.....
i have a question though , has he started blogging recently , or has he been doing it from episode 1

and some info about episodes 54 and 56

ADs for episode 54 are HIROKI KANNO(for the first half)...i guess i dont have to tell u who hiroki kanno is.....and Ryosuke Sekiguchi (ep 6, 16, 27, 33, 45, 54) for the second half....

ADs for episode 56 are Masaru Oshiro (for first half)(ep 19,28,38,49) and Chiyomi Tsukamoto (ep 5, 14, 25, 36, 46, 56) for the second half......awesome..............
