Thank you, paca!! ^^
The following is my translation of chapter 97. As usual, I'll be back later to fix type and whatnot, and may still edit and refine some parts of the translation. As such, if need to repost please try to post the link to this post rather than copy and paste the translation. The link to this post is http://www.fullmetal-alchemist.com/forums/...st&p=691272.

Thank you so much, Paca!! Now to look at the rest.

Wooh, more of Hohenheim versus Father! And Father becomes a Truth-y type thing!

Ahahaha, Greedling's going to fight Wrath! Just as I predicted!
FMAobsessed
Thank you Paca!

That cover is so cute. I love the happy FMA Gangan Covers. But only 17 pages? Weekly series like Naruto and One Piece get longer chapters. Why not FMA this time?

But I cannot wait for Tombow's translation. No pressure Tombow.

WOAH

This chapter looks so good! Thanks paca! But I hope it's not only 17 pages...hmm...

Following are the "piece meal" quick translations of the preview pages kindly provided by paca above.

And, that's it for the quick interim translations of these preview pages. As usual, I'll be back later and correct typos and whatnot, and of course these translations should be modified to fit the context better once the whole chapter is out, especially, like the last page with Ling's bubbles because right now I don't know exactly what he is referring to.. ^^



ETA: The above was the interim translation of preview pages for the chapter. Please see the real chapter translation on my first post of the page. ^^

Wow, thanks Paca for this smile.gif. And thanks Tombow for your translations. This chapter will definitely restore my faith in Arakawa (after half-assed Mustang-Envy encounter).

ABOUT THE 17 pages:

QUOTE
Paca, or anyone who can read the posts on HagarenBB, what do they say?? Are these "preview" pages?? It looks like some pages are missing in between these pages in some parts, so I'm assuming these are preview pages... correct?? unsure.gif


I have checked the pages' numbers and they haven't uploaded all the pages...
they jump from 290 to 293 for example.. the rest is very hard to tell which pages are missing 'cause I can't see the pages numbers >.<... but between 293 and 310 -not knowing exactly where- there are some missing pages too~~
Tombow
Aha, got it... thank you paca!! You're awesome!! happy.gif

On-topic:
Nooooo, Buccaneer, don't die!!!!
ETA: Whew, I'm glad the way it turned out. ^^

Also, I love the way Olivier handles it when asked about taking over the Fuhrer's chair. XD




OT:
(The cover of GanGan mag is...uh.. very Summerish. XD But, it's with another very deformed perspective... braces for another wave of "I do't like the perspective!!!" posts. XD)

Thanks for sharing!

I'm beyond curious as to what's brewing with Hohenheim and Father. I'm also very excited to see Greed and Wrath finally return. And seeing as Greed made an appearance, Ranfan shouldn't be too far off. smile.gif

What exactly is that thing on Wrath's belt, behind his back ?

Edit: Thanks for the translation, Tombow! I was wondering if Hohenheim was talking to the souls in him. It's really awesome of him to have talked to them all.
Alchemical
Thanks a bunch, paca! <3

Ah, it looks amazing! *.*
Kale Mustang
Absolutely awesome preview of chapter 97! Looks to be extremely action-packed!

Thanks paca for the pages & big thanks to Tombow for the preliminary translation of the known pages.
Aribelle
\o/ Thanks Tombow for the translation! Wow - could this battle really be the end of Father? I wonder if this is gonna be the big decisive one or if it will be inconclusive and some other characters will finish him off. I think this is it though! It's kind of surreal how these things we've been building up to are all happening!

It's a hand-grenade I think. I hope Bradley won't die. I hope he kills Olivier though, she annoyed me from the start.

I hope not, she's one of my favorite characters. Ling he can go ahead and kill, though, he's annoyed me from the start.

Yeah, Ling annoyed me too. He can die and his organs should be sold so he could return Ed the money for what he ate/destroyed.
penguintruth
To be honest, though, I almost hope Ling survives, if only for Greed to survive. Then again, it'll probably be that he survives, but Greed dies. I wonder if a homunculi can be exorcised from a body.

It's been weird having my favorite character ever (Greed) posessing my least favorite character (Ling). Am I supposed to like him or hate him?

Thanks, Paca & Tombow!

I can't wait for the full chapter...I hope Buccaneer's okay.

It must be possible in Greed's case. Since his influence comes from the stone inside Ling, take out the stone and Greed should go away.

Thank so you so much Tombow and Paca! I can't believe we've got stuff on chapter 97 already! It's quite early =D Which is great!

I'm tempted to look at the preview pages but I'll wait until the full chapter is out ^___^ but i bet it's going to be another amazing chapter!

biggrin.gif
Alzea
Ah, thank you so much paca and Tombow~~
Ah, Bradley is back~! And Father, omg, I'm speechless...
I can't wait to see everything...
Kirara
Wow epic chapter (I hate these teases of only part of the chapter though. I wish I had the willpower to wait for the whole thing).

On another note I love Ling and Olivier. I just wanted to say it because of all the character hate on this thread. wink.gif
Forsaken Love
lol poor Ed! Look how wittle he is compared to same age hoho on the cover XD
Full Metal Elf
AHHHH...I need the whole chapter NOW! lol

More Father vs. Hohenheim YES!
But WTH? is with Father? I guess the chapter will explain more.

And I knew Bradley would come back eventually! Him vs. Greedling is going to be awesome! I just hope he doesn't kill Greedling T___T

Since I noticed Armstong and his speedo on the cover that's all I can see. XD That title page is all kinds of awesome, though. I'm trying to stay strong and have only looked at the color pages and their translation. Even if the title is only tentative, it's making it harder not to look. I can't wait for it to be released.

Thanks Paca and Tombow! smile.gif
Forsaken Love
same, im trying really hard, but i just had to look at the first 5 pages XD i stopped there though, im refusing to read more, thanks for the spoilers though!!

Lol, for some reason I completely missed that when I was looking at it laugh.gif Armstrong is always in the background stealing all the attention, right? tongue.gif

I guess I have some good self control, I haven't looked at any pages besides the two color pages biggrin.gif I'm waiting for the whole scanlation to come out before I read it.
Forsaken Love
OT: on the GanGan cover pic

Winry in a bikini, me like...... while the girls get shirtless Ed, we guys get the Winry fanservice too, I hope Arkawa draws another beach picture but this time with Riza, Rose, Ranfan and General Major Armstrong, and throw in a Roy and Jean for the girls while you at it.

I don't think that you should really credit me since I just uploaded it to the few other sites and brought it here, I took raw from raw-paradise site ^^ I'm not sure but maybe you should just post link to the album on photobucket?

BTW, welcome to the FMA Discussion Board Axem_Rangers~~!
Tombow
@Axem_Rangers - Welcome to our board!! That's so nice of you for making page-by- page view album for this chapter!! ^^
BTW, we have a limit on how many images we can post on one post, and also having 40 plus pages of images will substantially slow down the loading of this thread, so... I switched images on your post to links to your Photobucket album address for each corresponding pages. Hope you don't mind. ^^
Axem_Rangers
I have to link the rest, but I guess, we'll all just have to cope.
Honestly, that was a lot more work then I thought it was going to be.

@ Tombow - Yeah, I realized that halfway through. If you could change all the links to the corresponding page numbers, like you did with the other pictures, that would be awesome. smile.gif


<Done, and added the link to page 1 (chapter title page) also. ^^ ~ Tombow>
Michiyo-
That was an action packed chapter.
I wonder what happened to Father now. That thing looks really creepy.
Poor Buccaneer and Falman. And Greedling is back! His fight with Bradley will definitely be interesting.

Can't wait for translation! ^^

@Axem_Rangers : Welcome to the board!
paca
Wow! now is greater than before!!!!
Thanks Alzea and Axem_Rangers!
and thanks Tombow for the translation ;D
Kirara
It looked to me like Father

Went back to the shape he was in when he was in the flask.....just much bigger & creepier

Also Bradley's return was absolutely epic but then so was seeing Greedling at the end.

And thank god for Buccaneer, I was getting nervous there for a sec

Although my favorite part was definitely Falman, I just wanted to give him a hug. <3

Aribelle
Thank you Alzea! \o/

This chapter looks awesome! The RAW is available to read online at Mangahelpers as well smile.gif

Poor Falman! But YAY LING/GREEDLING! I've missed him! I hope he comes out of this fight alive though. And if Greedling is there, Ran Fan must not be far behind, since she went off to find him...also, Hoho vs. Father is turning out to be intense! The tail end of their part looked crazy what with Father changing forms...so suspenseful!

Arakawa's work is epic as always...can't wait for translations ^^
stonehead
Uh.. a tank? In what year were we again?

[edit] Nevermind - after all, there was modern artillery at Briggs as well. See chapter 78, p.28 etc.

And not to mention this is the FMA world not our world so the same rules do not necessarily apply. And this isn't the first time we saw the tank either. smile.gif
Malka2009
Just thought I'd let y'all know that I've (shoddily, most likely) translated the chapter. smile.gif
