QUOTE
ラースVSグリード
ラースは持ち前の視力の良さで瞬時に安全な逃走経路を判断し
列車事故からもそうやって逃れていたとのこと
しかし寄る年波には勝てず、全盛期は過ぎているらしい
が、それでもなお(リンと協力して対策を取っている)グリードを押すし
白服が援護(邪魔)すりゃ、即血の海ができあがる
ついでに時間がかかったもんだから、中央兵が息を吹き返しつつあり、形勢はさらに不利に

アームストロング組は、政府高官を(正座で)尋問
言葉で誤魔化そうとするが、要は一般庶民は俺らが不老不死になるための踏み台になれとの世迷言
便所サンダルとブーツの裏で制裁
さすがに軍人たちもついていけなくなり、襟章を外す

そして鋼の一向はメイを見失い、ついでに迷子になっていた


Ps : I'm Dofla, and i'm very confident about them happy.gif


ETA: The following is the quick translation of the above by Tombow, with some paraphrased contents.
QUOTE (Tombow @ Aug 8 2009, 10:06 PM) *
There is a fight between Wrath vs Greed.
Wrath uses his special ability to see, and instantly judges the safe escape route. He tells that that is also how he has escaped from the explosion of the train he was on.
But, he seems to be feeling his age. It seems he is past his peak.
Still he overwhelms Greed who is fighting together with Ling, and when *the ones with white cloth try to help them also, he sends them to a pool of blood also. (Note: I can't tell who this "White clothed one" is, nor whether that's single or plural...)
To make matters worse, because this has been taking time, the Central soldiers who were knocked unconscious are waking up also, and the situation is getting worse.

Meanwhile, Armstrong and the gang interrogate the Central brass officer. He tries to explain away his actions with excuses, but eventually spits out that the common citizens of the Amestris should be sacrificed to become the stepping stone for these brass officers to turn immortal, and he gets whacked by toilet sandals (Izumi) and boots (Olivier.) Eventually, he admits his wrong, and resigns from his commission.

Meanwhile, Ed and the gang have lost May, and themselves are also getting lost.....

The best I could do was use Babel Fish and it didn't make much sense to me. What did make sense didn't reveal much as far as I can decipher.

^ Thanks. ^^

@Edwy03 - Thank you for that SPOILER!! happy.gif

The following is the quick translation of the spoiler preview posted by Edwy03 above: Translation by me, with some paraphrased contents.

There is a fight between Wrath vs Greed.
Wrath uses his special ability to see, and instantly judges the safe escape route. He tells that that is also how he has escaped from the explosion of the train he was on.
But, he seems to be feeling his age. It seems he is past his peak.
Still he overwhelms Greed who is fighting together with Ling, and when *the ones with white cloth try to help them also, he sends them to a pool of blood also. (Note: I can't tell who this "White clothed one" is, nor whether that's single or plural... Ranfan and Fu, maybe? )
To make matters worse, because this has been taking time, the Central soldiers who were knocked unconscious are waking up also, and the situation seems to be getting worse for Greed and the gang.

Meanwhile, Armstrong and the gang interrogate the Central brass officer. He tries to explain away his actions with excuses, but eventually spits out that the common citizens of the Amestris should be sacrificed to become the stepping stone for these brass officers to turn immortal, and he gets whacked by toilet sandals (Izumi) and boots (Olivier.) Eventually, he admits his wrong, and resigns from his commission.

Meanwhile, Ed and the gang have lost May, and themselves are also getting lost.....


==============

That's all from what's posted by Edwy03. As usual, this is the translation of the someone's summary of the chapter, so this may differ in some minor details from the actual chapter content (it's known to happen ^^) but I think we are getting a fairly good idea of some of the chapter contents.. ^^
Thanks again, Edwy03 for the SPOILER preview!! biggrin.gif

FINALLY!! ~

Wooow... I cant wait to read it! biggrin.gif
Turdaewen
Yay!!! \o/
Can't wait to read it!!! XD

Thanks for the spoilers, Edwy03, and thanks Tombow for translating! biggrin.gif Is it just me, or did spoilers come earlier this month? It's only the 8th today tongue.gif
SneakyRuler
Wow, so early! Thank you both Edwy03 and Tombow for the spoilers and for translating them. And now we have to wait... thanks heavens for Brotherhood so we have something in between chapters laugh.gif Let's hope Falman won't be harmed I felt so sorry for him.
RoyxRizaFan
When I typed it into a crappy translater (before Tombow gave us a real translation) I had no idea who 'toilet shoes' was LOL

This seems real promising! Hopefully this means we'll at least see Roy and Riza. I'm concerned about his condition after the emotional rollercoaster, and Riza's physical condition.

Poor Mei...I hope she's all right.


Thanks for the spoilers and translation!

My thoughts exactly, as this is one of the major things I'm worried about. Thanks for the translation! It gave me hope tongue.gif
Aribelle
\o/ Thank you all for spoilers and translations!!

Poor Mei! ;^; I hope she's okay...

LOL at Izumi/Olivier slapping the military guy with their shoes. I love them as a team. So much win.

I'm excited to see Ed and co. again!!
fullmoon
Thanks Edwy03 and Tombow!

Man, i'm excited! =D but I"ve got to resist the temptation to read the spoilers XD
Alchemical
Thanks a bunch!

*cannot wait*
FMAobsessed
Time to start waiting in anticipation again. For the new chapter and the new episode. This is going to be a FMA obsessed week.

Thank you Edwy03 for finding the spoilers and Tombow for translating.
jacksparrow589
Ah, so much to look forward to! I was kicking myself about Wrath's eye helping him escape the train wreck, and now helping him to navigate the fight with Greed. Totally should've seen the first bit coming, but I wasn't paying enough attention.

And, like a few others, I'm excited at the possibility of certain people being in this chapter. Izumi I can see throwing shoes, but Olivier? This is gonna be good! The thought of seeing Roy and Riza again is great, as well, but they're getting lost? This does not bode well...unsure.gif

Thank you, Edwy03 and Tombow!
Michiyo-
Thanks again Edwy03 for the spoiler and Tombow for the translation!
The spoilers came out early, so I hope that means the RAW is close, too! biggrin.gif Can't wait for it!

And Roy and Riza will be in the chapter! I'm really happy now.
DistantBlue
Squee! I'm so excited! The spoilers sound awesome!

We get Ep. 19, Ch. 98, Prince of Dawn and the comic preview (which will be in the new Shounen Gangan along with Ch.98) all in the same week!

I hope we get preview pics and the raw soon!

LOL, toilet shoes and boots. Also, Riza and Roy! Yay!
bluwim
Thanks a lot for the spoilers ^^ Waiting for pictures!
Makika
Wow, I'm happy, the last anime chapter was amazing, I hope the manga chapter would be the same!

Roy and Riza *----* Oh boy, I want this chapter!

Ehm... guys... we have allready the 10th today...
So we allready should have tons of preview pictures and all this...

Yes, that was my question. I'm aware the chapters actually come out on the 12th in Japan, but we have gotten them on the 10th for quite a while now (9th last month). So, even if it's coming out "on time" this month, shouldn't there at least be a crapton of preview pics from the Chinese scanners? Have I just become too spoiled? sad.gif
amestris_star
I'm actually happy that it's taking time, generally that means that Roy is in it LOL

Has anyone had a look at the Chinese forums per chance?
Hey
I checked Hagarenbbs and there doesn't seem to be any new stuff there..

I hope Roy is in it. After the awesomeness that was ep 19 I just have to have more Roy, lol.
amestris_star
Check out the preview pages from here:

Malka2009
Looks like the title is "Endless Greed".

Thank you Amestris! Wow, I want that title spread in HQ. O.o

Also, I am so waiting for a new artbook. It's been years! xD

Aha, yes, in case some peaple forgot, allow me to remind again that the raw was scheduled to come out 2 days earlier than normal scheduled date of 12th for last month. This happens time to time, and so the raw come out on 10th of July in Japan for the last chapter, and hence we had the preview pages and the raw pages earlier than usual last month. But, for this month the raw is scheduled to come out on the normal scheduled date, 12th of this month, and the preview chapter title page showed up already, so, hopefully, we'll get to see more of this chapter sometime soon. smile.gif


And, speaking of...
@amestris_star - Thank you for the link fo LJ to see the chapter 98 title page!!

I love the title page!! And, according to that, the title of Chapter 98 is "Bottomless Avarice"?? (or something like that. ^^) And the caption for the pics (with the 7 Homunculi) is: "Seven Sins, those who were born from the depth of dark abyss."
Wow. Can't wait to see this chapter!! smile.gif

You're welcome ^^

I read someone's translation of that as "Endless Greed", and I think it could make quite some sense. I think it was in that same link ^^
Tombow
^ @amestris_star - Yes, I agree... "endless" is indeed a good way to describe greed. ^^ I like that, and I would probably change to something like that for the actual chapter title (once I read the whole chapter) ... But, for now, I'm kind of enjoying the "connection" between the caption for the pic.. "..born from the depth of dark abyss" and the chapter title "bottomless Avarice(Greed)" as that was probably the intention of the original also for this chapter title page, as the original Japanese word used for "bottomless" part of the title is kind of word to be usually associated and used to describe seemingly bottomless nature of the depth of some specific topographic object such as abyss, deep swamp/pool, cliff, stuff like that, and indeed the caption and the chapter title go very nicely in the original raw chapter title page, and it sounds even poetic, IMO. ^^ It's too bad that this is one of those nice stuff that would get lost once translated into English and other languages. smile.gif
kkg22104

I love that title page. ORIGINAL GREED! My favorite FMA character!

Any chance of Ling coughing up the original Greed? Or, alternatively, wearing cool shades and spending time with whores in a rundown bar?

amestris_star
Guys, someone needs to check the Chinese forums coz I think something new has just been posted wink.gif
Matsui
Oh my. That's many preview pages! I can't wait for the Denny, Maria reunion och to se Roy and Riza again!

Thanks. smile.gif

Say, isn't that old man at the end Kimbley's healer?
I love Brosh. <3

Man Greed vs Wrath is scary.
Thanks for the pics. ^^

Not like translation is needed to understand what is going on... but it would be nicer =D.

Riza is thanking Scar for something? Looks like a nice moment. I want it.



And also... Denny's face... Aaaaw... T^T
amestris_star
Such an epic chapter it seems!

Thanks Kasumisty for those ;D Ha ha, I raced back home from work to see these... hopefully chapter will be out soon.
paca
Awesome chapter! thanks!

Oh! Fu is really angry and he wants revenge for her grandchild's arm!!!!:O

Mrs. Bradly finds out that her husband is alive! ohmy.gif

Isn't the old man that appears in the last page the one who 'turned' Bradly into a homunculus ??!!
(http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/53/04/ )OMG! He is saying`then... Shall we start?`
So it seams that we are approching the end , aren't we?
Kuura
Aaaah, that chapter looks so EPIC! I think I just died (because of all that awesomeness)... Oh god, I love Denny laugh.gif

Wow, Greelin vs. Bradley looks exciting, even a little scary... I wonder how that battle will turn out now that Fu has also intervened... Man, they all looked furious!

And what was going on at the end of the chapter? Is it already the time to activate the circle?

rzerox21xx
Wow Denny looks more like a grown up Ed in this pic wit that face.

oh look at the pic, how wrong I was, Ed would never make that face or cry like that
