Michiyo-
Many thanks, amestris star! Chapter 100 will be really epic, I know it.
Can someone translate the spoilers, please? I didn't understand much.
Tombow
ETA: It seems the possible spoiler summary, posted earlier below was not correct. XD
Instead, I edited in my chapter translation here. It's at the "quick translation" stage right now. I will come back and refine it later. ^^

ETA: I just re-read the translation, and it really needs refinement! XDD I'll be back later and clean up my quick version of translation. (Right now my cold medicine is making me feel too foggy to think clearly for this. XD) Till then, please don't take this one as the final version. ^^

Next chapter will be out in Japan on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009



Here, the quick translation is done, and as usual I'll be back later and re-read it and make finer adjustments. For now, you can get the fairly good idea of what's going on in this chapter with this, I believe. ^^ Wow, I'm pooped out, mentally, from translating this chapter (in a good way.) Be back sometime later and check for typos and all that jazz. ^^
amestris_star
And by the way, forgot to mention that poster should be a reliable source... (at least I hope).

You're welcome Tombow.
Kasumisty
Well, Elrics getting locked in the Doors of Truth and Wrath dying were predictable events. But I can't say the same with Roy opening the gate (what is his reason? Okay, I know that Ed is here and he doesn't want to loose a subordinate buut...) and that white fog o.o I'm trusting you, Arakawa! Please, make reasonable things!
Gimpyhair
Oh god, I just read this: now I will TRY not to read anything else, especially after seeing this royai stuff!! *will try to make comics compulsively instead*


Edit: And yet, not even 5 minutes later, I'm already going back on this thread just to see if there's not something new, god help us!!
Michiyo-
Thanks for the translation, Tombow! ^^
We got early spoilers, so I hope that means the preview pages and the raw will be out soon, too. Can't wait! biggrin.gif

Thanks for spoilers! So I guess Mustang WILL open the gate after all, and Riza goes with him too.

I want the chapter sooo bad XD

Thanks for the spoilers, guys!

Dammit, I can't wait for the chapter! I guess it's another couple of days of constantly refreshing the thread!
DistantBlue
Thanks so much amestris-star and tombow!

I knew that Mustang's gate-thing would pop up, but that was unexpected. It sounds like another horrible cliffhanger! Especially since Hawkeye is in there too! And that ALL the sacrifices are there! D: D: D: D:
The_Twilight_Trinity
Oh good! I'm glad Roy and Riza are still sticking together.... But Riza barely makes it? Huh....

Oh, god, I want this chapter soooo much right now!!!!!!
Mindy
Oh gosh, a white fog? ohmy.gif

Riza always told Mustang "don't go where I can't follow!"


DistantBlue
@Mindy - If that was the correct translation, that would have been so true. (According to Tombow, it was 'Don't degrade to the way of animals', I think)

100. GAH, I can't wait. I wonder what it is meant by 'barely makes it'. O.o

I thought about the same thing the whole evening! This will be heartbreaking T_T

I just hope that while waiting for something to happen, Riza (and Scar) won't just hang out and do nothing. But I just can't see what they could do (except Riza shooting Crazy-Scientist)

I'm also wondering what Roy will lost as equivalent exchange for opening the gate. I'm getting worried!
DistantBlue
Gimpy - according to the spoiler, Riza FOLLOWED Roy INTO the gate, as in, she is now in the gate with Roy. I don't mean to be annoying or anything, but you seemed to imply you thought Riza was still with Scar, and I didn't want you to be confused later. smile.gif

I'm going to dig around 2ch and other forums while I do my homework and post anything I find.

OT: At the rate the story is going, by Ch.101 or 102 (by b-day chapter!) things are going to get EPICALLY EPIC.
Tombow
^ Yap, DistantBlue is correct. According to this possible spoiler, Riza followed Roy and she is inside the gate at the end of chapter 100. I can't tell whether she is with Roy or not, because she might have gotten separated from Roy once inside the gate, and we probably don't know till we read the NEXT chapter (chapter 101) but at least she is inside the gate. smile.gif

Just in case... Before anyone would start spreading "Aha, another foretelling panel by Arakawa-sensei!!" or something, allow me to reiterate.... ^^
As DistantBlue mentioned above, that particular phrase supposedly spoken by Riza in that particular bubble in that chapter was CONCOCTED by the translator who happened to have translated that particular version of scanlation you read. In REAL FMA chapter, Riza NEVER SAID THAT in that bubble in that chapter in the raw. What she said in that bubble was, in far more "literal" translation, "Please don't degrade to the way of animals," meaning, Roy descending into madness with the pursuit of revenge for Hughes's murder, and turning into a revenge crazed animal, and in the process losing his human way.
Now, I know that "more closer to literal" translation sounds rather "awkward" in English, and I'm sure changing that to "Don't go where I can't go" made the completed scanlation more "nice and fun" and "smooth" reading as a scanlation, and I'm glad you enjoyed (I assume ^^) reading that particular scanlation with that part. Just please know that Arakawa-sensei never wrote that in REAL FMA chapter. ^^
Gimpyhair
O.O


Wh-what??


*re-reading*
"Riza tries to follow Mustang into the gate and barely makes it."

I did read this, but my second-language English failed me: I thought "barely makes it" meant she nearly got there, but just miss it.



Now I see: you people just want me to die from a heart attack!! My heart is bumping so fast that I will have soon an hole in my chest XD


Distantblue and Tombow, thanks for correcting me! Sorry for spreading false rumors, also, Riza going in the gate is waaaaay better than being left behind ŕ-la-CoS biggrin.gif As for the "don't go where I can't follow", yeah, now I remember this conversation about different translations.

I'm now wondering if Riza will act as a sacrifice, or it really has to be an alchemist.

Ahh. Just like Casablanca's most famous misquoted line "Play it again, Sam." It was never said it the movie, but many people mistakenly thought so. happy.gif

Anyway, back on topic I do hope Roy and Riza are together in that "white fog." I also am wondering what payment Roy had to make and if Riza lost anything too. It sounds as though this will be quite the cliffhanger.

I'm not sure how much speculation I should make, considering the fact that the chapter is not even released, we know near to nothing of the details, etc. But anyway, I'll do it and I'll be damned... I think Riza is in the best position to be the payment for Roy opening the gate. That's it, I say it, I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself, I won't say it again until we have the scanlations!



Oh lord, the next few days months are going to be full of farfetched speculations: from Edward turning into the Truth to a RoyRiza body-soul fusion (don't ask, it was in my head for a couple of seconds)!
Turdaewen
But, Gimpy, Roy already opened the gate and Riza got inside with him. So, he won't be using her for opening the gate: he already did it. XD
Probably, Dr Creepy gave Roy a philosopher stone. Ed did that, once, when he left Gluttony's stomach, so we know it's possible. And, since we know both Roy and Riza ended up inside, I don't think there will be any more loss of limbs because of that.
Frostrevenant
Me thinks Riza should be fine...going by the chapter where Ed opens the gates inside of Gluttony, doesn't he say something like all the rebound effects will be borne by the person who did the alchemy? And Ling and Envy jumped into the gate that Ed opened and they're alright.

Whoa. First post after God Knows How Long. Thus is the effects of chapter 100 spoilers.
Kale Mustang
Exciting times are straight ahead. biggrin.gif

If Bradley really is on his last legs, I tip my hat to him as he's been a great villain but also, in a way, he's been a pawn for Father as well as Goldie and the other mad scientists. I almost feel sorry for him, as it's hard to say how much of his own volition he's been operating on.

Regarding Roy & Riza, it'll be interesting to see how Roy was able to open the gate. Also, it sounds as if Riza just managed to enter the gate just after Roy was taken - definitely shows just how committed they are to not only the Elrics, but also each other. They're definitely a team to be reckoned with when they're together.

Father, Hohenheim, and the White Fog sound really interesting as it seems that the fog and the Truth are somehow connected to one another. And for the Fog, I wonder if it'll only stretch as far as the transmutation circle's boundaries or if has the potential to go out further.
penguintruth
It's mighty nice for Roy to open the gate in order to retrieve Edward, but I hardly expected him to actually do so. Also, will this mean he can do alchemy without arrays after? Isn't this guy already overpowered as it is?
QueenTiria
Ahh... my birthday chapter!! (is hyperactive)
Actually, I hope it does get released before my birthday, which is the 19th ^^.
Honestly, I think this chapter would make a brilliant birthday pressie lol.
CAN'T WAIT, except a little bit disappointed in the spoiler as apparently this chapter actually doesn't reveal too much, but we'll see when the scanlation is in ^^

Wow, FMA has reached Chap 100 and the plot is still epic. Arakawa-sensei is a genius.
amestris_star
Well, strictly speaking, the tattoo could come in handy here... for entering the gate I mean, after all Riza still has alchemical symbols on her back.

Kaleidoscope
Wow that would be really cool! I've always sort of hoped that the tattoo would play a role in the climax of the story, even though its already served its purpose well for back-story/character development.

I really did not expect that the plot line will go in this way.The shortness and the ambiguity of this early spoiler surely have something to do with it; I deem the "white fog" thingy weird, and possibly lame...who knows. Since it's a tradition (Is that so? huh.gif ) for Japanese manga composers to celebrate their 100×n episodes, maybe I just want to see something in a even-better-than-average quality.

Please, Arakawa, give us a good reason why Roy open the gate, and why Hoho was not devoured by the gate in the first place together with Izumi, Al and Ed, and what is this "white fog"... sleep.gif ... My head is totally messed up.

And, Ametris-star, do you mind if I borrow this piece of information to Chinese hagane forums?

I didn't see Tombow's translation there, so I went to Google Translate (since my Kanji knowledge isn't good) and it didn't make sense at all. XD

Chapter 100 sounds so epic... ;A;
paca
pages!!!
I uploaded the images like this because it was faster I've got to go to school now =.=


Tombow
Paca, these badu links are not working... sad.gif
These are working now. Thank you!!! *big hugs!!* happy.gif

Oh but... Holly smoke!! Riza!!! sad.gif This was totally unexpected!!! blink.gif

Umm... I guess Paca is gone for school... can someone who has the access to badu forum and hence knows the order in which these pics were posted, could you put these pics in the right order??? They seems to be out of sequences, but with my slow connection it's almost impossible to figure out the right sequences.

Also, right now, these pics are direct-uploaded to the board.
Could someone upload them to Photobucket or some other site and get URL links? unsure.gif
(I would do it in a heartbeat if I my connection were normal and working right, except it isn't right now and it takes forever for me to do that, if I can at all... )


ETA: Raw DL link is posted by Ezupio here. ^^

All right, since no one is helping me, I tried it myself to put posted pages on Paca's post above in what I think is the possible correct sequences. (So that I can start translating..) And, since I can't upload them to Photobucket due to my slow connection problem, and Paca direct-uploaded pics to our board and I can't make them into [IMG] tag, hence I can't post them as image, only links. But anyway.... below is my "guesstimated" sequences of how these scanned pages posted by Paca on her post above would go....

Arakawa autograph give-away

Chapter title page


Zuzuzu everywhere (don't know where this page fits in, in terms of the story for this chapter XD)



Ed still falling, possibly COLOR page 1

Ed still falling

Ed finishes falling, meets up with Izumi. Al's armor falls

Ed & Izumi meet Father/Truth

Ed meets Truth/Father, Al not moving

Truth/Father with Hoho?



Wrath hold on to Greedling

RanFan gives hand to Ling from above

Wrath falls off

Wrath falls, Ling asks for a doctor for Fu

Ranfan asks Ling to duck

Ling asks Greed to help him

Greed "I don't fight woman"



Roy, Scar, Riza, they are all cought

Riza getting her throat cut

Roy calls: "Lieutenant"

Last page of this chapter
edo little kid

I first want to apologize for yesterday evening (right now it's my morning @_@), since I was totally over-exciting and I wrote messages impulsively without thinking sleep.gif


Now, back to the subject:

QUOTE (penguintruth @ Oct 8 2009, 01:07 AM) *
It's mighty nice for Roy to open the gate in order to retrieve Edward, but I hardly expected him to actually do so. Also, will this mean he can do alchemy without arrays after? Isn't this guy already overpowered as it is?


This brings another question: will he be able to do alchemy without an array right after opening the gate, or does he have to wait coming back in the world before making alchemy without array? Does opening the gate automatically means seeing the truth?


QUOTE (amestris_star @ Oct 8 2009, 01:34 AM) *
Well, strictly speaking, the tattoo could come in handy here... for entering the gate I mean, after all Riza still has alchemical symbols on her back.


Maybe there's more to her back than meet the eye dry.gif When I first thought of the tattoo becoming handy in the gate, I thought it was more Roy activating it because a) he doesn't have his gloves anymore, cool.gif he doesn't have something to write. But then, if Roy can now use alchemy without an array, not having an array is not a problem. Papa-Hawkeye is some kind of crazy genius, so it wouldn't be surprising that the tattoo have something more than flame alchemy.


Paca, thank you, the links are working for me biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Omg no!!
Arakawa cant kill Riza :<
Thanks for the images!
hand-made-city
WHAAAT THE HELLLLL. This is chaos! My god, Riza!!!! O_O I absolutely cannot wait to see this chapter!
chuchuhorse23
God...God...Oh this is just...I am spellbound.

The earliest spoiler is wrong, to my great relief. A fatal cut on the neck for Riza...Hoho got totally devoured by the Father...Al's soul was severed from its metal body...Oh these, these are groundbreaking, headexploding plot lines...
QueenTiria
Thank you paca for the previews and OMG RIZA AND AL!!!!!!!
I KNEW they were totally going to use Riza against Mustang, except using Riza as a damsel in distress really doesn't suit her. And Al... is decomposing... I have a feeling he'll reunite with his body very soon lol
_Jelly
I cant stop staring at the page where Roy shouts "Chuui!!!"

I am offically dead because of that picture.

*brb crying*

*cries with amestris_star*

There's definitely a chance that this guy missed her jugular, yeah?
Animeoldtimer
Wow! Now that's a disturbing picture of Hohenheim! Here's hoping Riza has only a little more than a flesh wound. The spoilers did say she "barely" makes it. But she does make it right? I want to know what Ling is crying about.
StormGoddess
T_T

hope she still survives. Please don't die Riza T_T. And I'm still hoping that her tattoo would somehow help her live. And if she really dies I'm gonna go hunt down Arakawa. Oh wait, let me think about that again.

Well, looking at the bright side, Wrath is dead so yeah. Ok he's still alive. why can't he just dieeee? T_T
Michiyo-
OMG! *cries* Riza can't die!

These first spoilers were fake anyway, none of what they say happens.
What would you think Ling is crying about? Fuu's death, of course.

It's sad, but the theory of Riza dying and Mustang trying to save her is most likely going to happen.
This man would not have stabbed her this way if it was only for hurting her, it's a death blow. BUT MAYBE it was a simulated death blow for Mustang to go human transmutation, but that would be unlikely...
Something more has to happen to her, she just can't die...

And Wrath ISN'T dead folks, we can see that he is glancing with his other eye to the pipe underwater.
Alzea
Holy sheep! O_____________O *speechless*

Riza...No, I'll wait for the chapter...maybe, just maybe...darn...T^T
Tombow
Yeah, with my slooooow connection it's taking forever to open these pics, but from what I read so far, Dr. Goldtheeth slashed Riza's throat to make Roy do the human transmutation, to open the gate.

I'm trying to find the right sequences of these posted pages so that I can try to get some translations. As I posted above, if anyone has the access to badu and hence can figure out the correct sequences (that is, assuming the pics there are posted in the correct sequences) then help us by letting us know the correct sequences for these pics.

ETA: Currently awaits page-by-page view of the chapter raw. ^^

And, yeah, the reported "(possible) early spoiler summary" was totally wrong. XD
Ezupio
The Raw is out :
Raw Paradise
So early? Fake? Currently downloading.
Chiyo
Never seen so many members on one thread at once, wonder why thats is...

Oh yes of course....because of the EPICNESS of the chapter. Arakawa delivered a heck of a 100 as promised. Wow
Turdaewen
If Riza was to die simply like that, Arakawa wouldn't make such a big deal about it... That doesn't mean she can't die (threreá a high possibility she will), but, it won't be so... quick, if I can put it this way.
