Well, it's the 8th... so most probably things might be starting to crop up soon either on 2ch or on hagarenbbs. However, with respect to the latter, I think there's something wrong with their website of late... so, dunno how we'll manage tongue.gif

EDIT: Currently checking 2ch and there seems to be nothing new... yet. We just have to wait.

And, that's it for the quick over... as usual, be back later and fix typo, and other errors etc. an refine the translations later. I have a few places I'd like to think over, and might change/edit, so please don't use it as the base of your discussions yet. ^^

OLD MAN FUUUUUU!!!!!. Ah! God, this just gets better and better with every chapter!

What I'm wondering now though is who the other two sacrifices are since we can assume that Izumi, Ed and Alphonse are definitely the first three because the previews say so. This is gonna be good!!!

Thank you, fullmoon! I love this moth cover - Ed look so grown up...

Still...

Old man Fuu!

And I'm assuming Fuhrer is/will be dead soon? His wounds are not fatal, but he's got only one soul in him. And he is getting hit more...

And, that's all for now. As usual, these are very quick translations that are bound to change once we see the whole chapter, but meantime you can get some idea what is going on.... smile.gif Once again, thank you so much, Edwy03 for kindly sharing these preview pages. biggrin.gif


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

Too bad I can't read the chapter title. ^^

ETA: The pic of the chapter title page is kind of small and the letters on chapter title part is hard to read, but thanks to the phrase in one of the pages from additional preview pages posted by Paca, I think I know the chapter title now. This month's chapter title comes from one of Fu's dialogue, and, tentatively, I'm translating the chapter title as:

Chapter 99: "The final farewell" "The Final Leave"

Although, "the final farewell" sounds bit misleading, like as if Arakawa-sensei is signaling the message to readers that the end of the series is here... (though we can all sense it that the end of the series is just around the corner... T.T) So, I might change it to something closer to the original meaning of the words. This chapter's title is coming from Fu's dialogue in the chapter, and the phrase he used there is customarily used when a servant or a person with the similar status is addressing to the master that they are "taking the final and eternal leave" i.e. they are leaving the servitude, and th ephrase is usually used with the fond sentiment for their time they spent serving the master, and much respect to their former master. IMO, it's perfect for Fu to use this phrase. With the extra touch that this is such an old fashion way of saying good-bye to the former master, and the phrase fits Fu's character so well. Anyway, that's where this chapter got the words for the title from, and I like the Japanese title of this chapter very much. ^^

ETA: Still contemplating.. XD But, I think I change my tentative translation of the Chapter title, to "The Final Leave" for now. smile.gif
Michiyo-
OMG, that chapter is epic! Thanks Edwy03 and fullmoon for the pics! I hope we'll see the whole chapter soon.
Gimpyhair
OMG, that is f*!@in EPIC!!! My brain just exploded!! Finally, we will know what they are going to do with "confirmed sacrifice"!. Am I the only one who find cute seing Oliver holding Izumi's hand?


Edit: do we have to use spoilers tag?
fullmoon
Tombow, Thank you so much for the translation you posted! =D
Hehe, can i say? My urge to read is...rising XD Oh, what the heck XD

Edit: do we have to use spoilers tag?



"Chapter 99 Preview Pics: Caution! Full Spoiler Pics On The Second Post!" is a pretty clear indication that there's spoilers in here. If people read through and find things they didnt want to hear yet, I'm pretty sure that's their fault. Then again, there's always people coming to discuss yet dont read spoiler tags and spoiler pages which I find confusing.

QUOTE (JELEE @ Sep 10 2009, 08:06 AM) *
wasnt Roy a sacrifice too? Where's his special eye that pops out of the ground and turns him into nothing?

He hasn't open the portal, yet, so he's still just a candidate, but not a actual sacrifice.

And OMG!! Fuu!! sad.gif I can't say I didn't see that one coming, but it still makes me sad... sad.gif
Animeoldtimer
Wow! This is something else! I didn't expect it to come to this so quickly. I assume the forth sacrifice is Hohenheim. Maybe the 5th is a surprise since Roy was not confirmed. Also, where is Doctor Marco anyway? I thought he was with Al.
Turdaewen
Well, Arakawa is wrapping up the story and there's too many things to get settled. She can't postpone anything, now. XD
Chiyo
You can see now how 100 will HAVE to be pretty special when 99 is the start of something so epic! Thanks for translating them Tombow

Edit: Who thinks the 5th person will be someone completely unexpected (like animeoldtimer thinks) and who thinks it'll be someone like Hoho?
Kuura
Urg. This chapter looks so exciting that I can hardly take it. And yeah, if chapter 99 is going to be THAT epic, I can't even imagine how epic the next chapter is going to be... Seriously, I need the raw NOW!
paca
thanks for the pages and for the translations! I can't wait for the whole chapter >.<

here I found two more pages biggrin.gif :

<ETA: @Paca - I added my quick translations. Hope you don't mind.. ^^ ~Tombow>

*Note: The actual words and phrase used by Fu is something like... "I humbly request and take my final and eternal leave on my servitude," and the phrase from Fu's this dialogue coins this month's chapter title. smile.gif



Mad Dr. and his creepy goons

Roy: "That means," "You are someone from our enemy's side."

Usual disclaimer from Tombow: These are quick translations, and the actual translation of these pages may change when we get the whole chapter. smile.gif
Michiyo-
Many thanks Tombow for the translation and paca for the 2 more pages! biggrin.gif

The waiting for chapter 100 will be really awful, but I'm sure Arakawa will come up with something unexpected. I wonder what will happen to Ed, Al and Izumi, and who will be the fourth and fifth sacrifice.
Tombow
^ You're very welcome!! ^^ And, thank you Paca! I'm guessing these are from the earlier part of the chapter?? I have to go now for a short while, but I'll be back and try to get these later. (Or, Michiyo- or others who may be able to read Japanese, fee free to take a shot at translating these pages. ^^) ETA: I rearranged your post and added the quick translations of these pages on your your post. biggrin.gif



Just from these preview pages, this chapter already looks amazing, and I can't wait to read the rest!! happy.gif

The funny guys with Goldie are most likely the failed Fuhrer candidates.
Strange, as they seemed to be dead, but that's most likely.

Am I the only one that's crying and shivering when seeing the preview pages? (I know I'm crazy but anyway...)

Man, Chapter 99 will be terribly epic. Terribly I say!

Thanks for all for the pics smile.gif

Chapter looks awesome - not to mention fairly bloody and action-packed! Absolutely cannot wait until the full chapter is available. biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone for the pics and translations!

The ones who were tested before Bradley did die, but maybe there were some left.

Oh, god. So there it goes the hero of the story. XD

I still think that they will make Roy open the gate, one way or another. I refuse to think that this scene http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/40/09/ will simply become a plot hole. I don't know how they will make him do it (I know the theory of killing Riza, but there's other way, you know), but the bad guys have to at least try to make him open the gate. It's too much big scene for it to be ignored later. This is also the reason why I want the Greelin/Wrath fight to finish soon, I want to see some Roy/Wrath interaction.

As for the fifth person, I think there might be someone we don't know yet.

And for Hohenheim? I don't think Father wants to use him for that, he might have other evil plans for him.

i couldn't help but glimpse some of the thumbnails, im gonna try and not to look at all the spoilers in full xD leave some surprises XD but omg my heart's beating, this chapter looks absoloutly completly epic and im so excited for it!

lol ok never mind i couldnt resist temptatition XD I'm assuming hoho was def gonna be one of the others in the 5, since I thought he was one of the confirmed sacrifices on Father's alchemy board thing with the little figures representing sacrifices. I'm sure Hoho's was standing up, not lieing down, however he's currently in the centre of the circle with father right? Also I allways assumed that the sacrifices would have to stand on the edges of the country-wide circle, as in the places where the crests of blood are, since only 3 of them have been taken it might not nesscairly mean their role as sacrifice is been fufilled yet, maybe they're been taken to whereever they need to be or somethin...mm no thats kinda odd gaaaaaah i dunno! I guess actually them been on the edges of the country was just an assumption, it just never occured to me they would be needed on a smaller circle nearer to the centre but actually that kinda makes more scence xD lulz and whats father and hoho doing I wonder? as for the last sacrifice, I agree , I can't see how the Roy thing would simply just become a plot hole and yeh where is marco? is he with Al's group? *shrug*

anyway this chapter is gonna be amazing i seriously cant wait
SneakyRuler
OMG! Who's inside the circle?! Quick! Dr. Marcoh, Hohenheim, Mei Chang, Alex Armstrong... you pick your own sacrifice there... The picture with Izumi scared me beyond belief. At least we know the sacrifices which were taken away by The Truth are unharmed *for now* because Dr. Creepydude paid the gate toll with the lives of those guys in circle he activated
hand-made-city
Good god this is going to be another AMAZING chapter! Poor Fuu! What a brave man!! And the part where all the confirmed sacrifices are taken away really got to me... it was so shocking, seeing them disappear like that. Especially Izumi, for some reason... maybe it was Olivier's face and Sig's reaction.. and then seeing her disappear like that. Wow.. this chapter is going to be awesome! Can't wait to read all of it!
kkg22104
Holy crap, man. O_O I was hoping spoilers would be out by the time I got home from school but I wasn't prepared for the epic awesomeness of the chapter! Fuu was so brave T_T So it's obvious that Ed, Al, and Izumi are going to be sacrifices, and there's also Hoho Papa. Hmm...I think the 5th one might be Marcoh or Mustang XD
jacksparrow589
Royai fan that I am, part of me is happy that nothing horrible has happened to Roy and Riza yet, but the rest of me is mourning Fu, scared as all-get-out for Ed, Al, and Izumi, and cursing Dr. Creepydude back to the black pit from whence he slithered.

This chapter is going to be probably the most intense chapter, or at least it will be WAY up there after the story's come to an end. I'm sure that this is the setup for a couple of very (in)tense chapters ahead. Though, even just reading the preiew pages, I'm just going, OhcrapohcrappleasenothisisNOThappening!" and at roughly that pace. Even nearly started crying!

I seriously want Hoho to be the one to save them all, though. IMO, somebody's gotta destroy this thing from the inside out, and Hoho's probably got the best working knowledge of any sacrifice (potential and confirmed) at the moment. Then again, with that knowledge, he could probably orchestrate a take-down from the outside, as well... Hmmm... Anyway, my bet's on Hoho being the main player when it comes to averting total, complete, and utter disaster, as something tells me it's too late to avert disaster altogether.

Thank you to all you provide the pics and the translations. This chapter is going to be epic! I can't wait, and I have the feeling that the wait for chapter 100 will be unbearble too.

Poor Fuu what a brave man. I really want the whole chapter because that puts the whole chapter together.

Also that cover pic of Ed is amazing. Our little Ed is really growing up.
Alchemical
... WOAH. This chapter is going to be absolutely amazing! ; - ;

Thanks to the providers!
penguintruth
Are those the other Fuhrer candidates with the mad doctor? I thought most of them died.

Oh, god, Ling is finally really Greed-ing it up. Let's get him with the full body shield! Then I will finally accept him as Greed. (Maybe.)

Speaking of finally, I hope we finally get Father's intention soon.

Finally... IZUMI! NOOOOOOOO~!
Alzea
Yes, yes, thanks to everyone who posted scans and translated~!

Chapter is going to be just simply epic, I can see that, just poor Fuu, I wasn't expecting this, really, darn you Arakawa. Argh, yeah if this is in this one I can't imagine what's going to happen in the October...

Right now I wonder what's with Roy, I mean he also should be a sacrifice but he must first open the gate so now I wonder, are they going to make him to do it now maybe that's why Riza is there or they'll choose someone else. Gah, right now I want Hoho to appear and save the day~ T^T
Daydreamer_Alchemist
Thank you so much for posting!
OMG! D:
The blak arms took Ed, Al and Izumi into the gate!
This chapter is truly going to be an interesting and exciting one! x3
It really feels like the end is near now :'<
penguintruth
At this point, Ed should have a special spot in front of the Doors of Truth reserved for him.

Truth: Oh, hey, Ed.
Ed: I want my damn arm and leg back!
Truth: Heh, sorry, no. But hey, as long as you're here, do you have the new copy of Monthly Shonen Gangan?
Ed: I'm IN the copy of Monthly Shonen Gangan!
Truth: So... you don't have it with you?
mersaydee
One good thing about Al being sucked through the gate - he's that much closer to reuniting with his body. Wonder if we'll have that moment soon? happy.gif
Aribelle
O.O oh man...I don't even know what to say! This is just like...overload lol. This chapter looks to be amazing. Can't wait! Thanks to all for pics and translations smile.gif

Thank you very much! If you don't mind my asking, where were these pictures originally found? I'd like to stalk those sites like a hawk ...
Tombow
@Malka2009 - Yeah, this month the preview pics are kind of hard to find, and I kind of think preview pics from Edwy03 are not repost but own scans. Either way, I'm very grateful that we got those. ^^
Malka2009
Ah, okay; I'll just have to exercise a little patience. Thanks again, Edwy03 and Tombow!

O__o

Wow.... These spolier pages are just..... Wow....

SO EPIC!!!! Next month's chapter is going to be soooo good! And also terribly hard to wait for. Man, I really really want to know what's going on with Ed, Al, and Izumi, but I'm sure we won't know until next month. GAAH! And I'm hoping they'll reveal who the other two sacrifices will be if not next chapter, then really soon after that! I mean, I think that Mustang is really likely for one space-- I'm just unsure about how they'll get him to open the gate. The only theory I've heard is them killing Riza, but I'm skeptical. It's waaay too obvious.... (and Riza is one of my favorite characters, so I'm trying not to be so pessimistic about her chances of living.....) and I think that Roy knows better than to try.

Fuu.... That makes me very sad even though he's not really up there in my favorite characters. He died very bravely.... I bet Ran Fan will come in soon with a vengeance. And Greeling too. I can't wait to see more!
