Thank you so much! Wow, I wish I could translate what Riza's thinking/saying. Have they... rematerialized somewhere? ohmy.gif

ohmy.gif I wish I knew what this said, but I can tell it's something big... I think. Thanks for the scans!

Edit: lol although I do like the tiny pic of Roy going 'Hahaha'. I wonder what that's about...

Ah I just noticed Hughes, Winry and Havoc. I did wonder why Breda and Fury were looking back.

LOL at Kimblee's hand and poor Yoki laugh.gif I can see Pinako's hair sa well.

Kasumisty, thank you so much! You're amazing.

AA battery: You can still look at first and third picture, they're just Gangan cover and chapter's frontpage without spoiling material - just pretty pictures smile.gif

OMG The Roy and Riza page, OMG OMG OMG.

*must resist urge to cry from the group page*

Hmm, my Japanese skills are just enough that I can READ everything, but I don't quite know what every word means. I can clearly read that the flashback is the "I don't plan to live on lightheartedly alone" line from a few chapters ago. Then the next line has something to do with the Colonel "like this." Then she says, "As for me, how could I be such a fool!"

I think she's blaming herself for Mustang's current situation?! O_o

It figures the one line I can really 100% read and understand is the one we all already know... sleep.gif

Lol, well, I'm sure the more experienced folk will have a better translation up in no time! smile.gif
rinoaebastel
Omg...why I feel that this is going to be epic?
Causmicfire
Love the face Hohenheim is making at Sig. Looks like a guy who's remembering a punch to the gut.

*can't wait to see the rest*

Also, it's Arakawa's birthday! XD
Jealous Rogo
Anyone else find it funny that Pinako's the only one not putting her hand forward, just her hair insted.

I find it funny that she included Kimblee here, it seems that Arakawa views Kimblee more favourably than the anime creators, who lump him in with the Homunculus.

Yeah this chapter is already off to a great start
A Pierrot's Aria
Those pages look awesome! biggrin.gif I'm hoping to see more pages really soon-- I'm excited!

Just a pictures with all the heroes + the title! I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT FOR THIS CHAPTER!!! X3

Here is a quick translation of the spoiler image, the second one. Hell, the one with Roy and Riza. XD

First thing Riza says: "Steady...!" (I think is something she is telling to herself, to keep steady).
Then her epic line, then "Even though the colonel became like this, he still speaks of not having given up" (or "he speaks of not having given up, but yet...", I'm not sure which to choose ^^U). And finally: "How could I, such a stupidity............!"

OK, I'm done with editing this post.
Michiyo-
Oh, wow. The color pages are simply awesome. That group pic is epic, and I wish I knew what is Riza thinking in the first page.

And the title... This will be an epic chapter.

EDIT: thanks for the translation, Kaori Ayanami! biggrin.gif

I may be asking for too much, but can somebody translate the sounds? They would give us some clues. smile.gif
Kasumisty
^I'm not an expert, but the first one "boya" seems to be the sound of the steam dropping down. The second one "bashi~" is slapping and then there are those pulsing sounds "do do do do do DO"

Oh my, thanks a lot!!! I thinks it'll be an epic chapter!!!
Thalogens
The Last Battle? Nooo!!! FMA has been an integral part of me for too short a time for it to suddenly be over D: This possibly gives us just one more chapter (epilogue and stuff) to look forward to in June. And it arrives slap bang in the middle of my GCSEs D':
MEH, who cares about qualifications anyway?!

I love the group picture, I love how Havoc is swearing slightly ahahahaa. Although I doubt that was Arakawa intended it to be like that. *shot*

Thanks everyone for the quick translation, I looove yoouu.

D: :'D D: I can't wait for scanlation!!
Sannom
Love that title page! So much emotion in it, all people who helped defeat Father showing their commitment to their task! Scar hiding his face as usual, probably because he is kinda the odd one in there. All dead characters (including F, I don't think he was mentionned already) and characters not in Central only showing one arm.

Also, I lol'ed at the size of the arms of the following persons : all the chimeras, Armstrong and Sigu, and Scar laugh.gif You can feel the huge guys behinf those!
Michiyo-
The title suggests that most likely they'll defeat Father in this chapter.
I just hope that the rest of the chapter will be out today.

BTW, that title page is so epic that I had to make a quick wallpaper: biggrin.gif

Great title page.

This is so surreal. FMA is actually ending!

Found this on Baidu:

Does this confirm that the manga will end in June?

I guess so ;.;

I will also make a wallpaper. And this scan gave me a good idea.

Please see my interim translations here.


Thank you, Kasumisty and Michiyo- and Paca!!

Yes.

I assume these are the "2 pages after the conclusion of this month's chapter" in this month's YoungGanGan.
It says:

Farewell, Fullmetal Alchemist.
In June, 2010, the unforgettable conclusion is coming,
and we will become the witness to this ending...!!

What will be the fate of Elric brothers?! Are they going to recover everything they have lost?!

Coming next month, YoungGanGan July issue (which comes out in June 12) and the final chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist!!

And, the preview page pics posted by Kasumisty:

Page with Riza

Caption at the top: Everyone is wounded all over their bodies, but their eyes say they are not giving up...!!

<Flashback of Riza>
Riza: I have no intention of going on with my own comfortable life by myself
(Note: it's one flashback panel taken out from the whole series of panels from that past chapter... this translation does not necessary represent the translation for this panel in the chapter where this panel is from ... making a special note because the varying translation for this particular panel seems to have caused some misunderstanding about the characterization of Riza in the past when this particular chapter came out. ^^)
----------------------------
Riza: (thinking to herself) The colonel hasn't given up fighting yet even though he is in such a condition. How fool of me [to have given up fighting because of my injury] ..........!!
SFX: (Riza wiping her blood on her face with the renewed conviction to fight) Wipe


----------------------------


Quick scan of raw pages on Baidu kindly uploaded for page-by-page view and posted by Paca:

(Unfortunately, the pics are blurred and many panels are cut off at the edges and can't read the full bubbles, hence it hard to even "guesstimate" the dialogue >.<)


Al asks May to create the translmution circle for him
Right page:
(First panel looks like Father in some bad shape, and Ed?)
-----------------------------
(Al seems partly unable to move here?)
Al: "(Largely guessed content) Just please make the transmutation circle for me. That will do." "You can do it, right?"
-----------------------------
May: "But activating such alchemy means Alphonse-sama will be......!!"
Al: "We don't have time!"
-----------------------------
Al: "We don't have time."
-----------------------------
Al: "Please."

Left page:
XiaoMay (?): "How can you ask such?"
Al: "(can't see the bubble in the scan)"
-----------------------------
Father: "Human...."
-----------------------------
Father: "Give me..." "The," "Energy."

Hohenheim: "Edward!!"



May create the transmutation circle
Right page:
SFX: (May creating the transmutation circle on the wall by throwing her thing at the wall) Tick Tick Tick
Left page:
Ed: "What are you doing, Al...." "Hey, stop it....."
-----------------------------
(As Al motions his arms to clap his hands)
Ed: "Al....."
-----------------------------
Ed: "Hey...."



Flashback to "after Al left his body," the conversation between Al's body and Truth
Right page:
(Flashback scene of Al leaving Al's body)
-----------------------------
Truth: "Hey," "(can't read this part..too blurred sad.gif )"

Left page:
Truth: "(can't read this part..too blurred sad.gif )"
-----------------------------
Al's body: "He is coming back," "Absolutely."
-----------------------------
Truth: "I wonder what he will sacrifice (as the traffic fee,)" "Looking forward to finding that out."



Al claps his hands and activates the Alchemy
Right page:
Al: "Win," "brother."
-----------------------------
Ed: "Stop it.....................!!!"
-----------------------------
SFX: (Al) Clap

Left page
SFX: (Al activating the alchemy by touching his blood seal) Zap



Al is back with his body
Right page:
Al's body: "Are you all done now?"
-----------------------------
Al: "Yeah," "All I have left is to ....(can't read, too blurred) my brother."



Alchemy reaction happening on Ed's arm....



And, more page-by-page view pics kindly posted by Paca, the original scan taken from the above mentioned Baidu forum.

Ed with BOTH arms
Right page:
Ed: (Realizing what Al has done) "Al, you..."
-----------------------------
Ed: "Fool..........!!!"
SFX: (Ed activating his alchemy) Clap

Left page:
SFX: (Ed aiming his alchemy attack at Father) Boom
-----------------------------
SFX: (Father) Cough
-----------------------------
SFX: (Ed) Zap

Soldier B: "It's getting to him........"
-----------------------------
SFX: (Father) Ohhhhhhh
Alex: "We can [concur him]...."



Ed goes for the kill
Greed: "These were kind of like my bodies."
(Note: I think Greed sensing his end because if Ed kills Father Greed would probably cease to exist? And kind of reminiscing that he was actually able to have buddies for a while in Ed and guys????)
-----------------------------
SFX: (Ed) Oh
-----------------------------
RanFun: "......................do it..............."
-----------------------------
Roy: "Fulmetal!!"



Last page of the chapter

Check two pages after this for more info!!!
(Note: I think these are the pages posted by Michiyo- above, see the top part of this post for the translation of these pages ^^)

(End of this chapter)
-----------------------------
(The next chapter will be out on.... can't see the part but I assume it will be out on June 12, 2010 in Japan ^^)

I like the background you made, I was just thinking that the pic would make a good background and you did it hehe.

Arakawa is simply epic. 80 and then 150 pages...

Wow... just, wow.
I expected these two chapters to be longer, but not THAT much longer! ohmy.gif That is amazing, how does she do it? Although at least now I think we can hope for a bit more closure on some issues, I was afraid that the last chapter would fall victim to a shorter epilogue... I should have had more faith in Arakawa.

Unfortunately, it's past 1AM here, so I'll have to wait 'til the morning, where hopefully there'll be scans.
Qashqai
The fact that the last chapter will have 150 pages makes me overhelmed and incredibly happy. :F
Well, it's like... a whole volume. Almost. Well, with some omakes it'd make a whole volume I guess. And this month's chapter's title is "The Last Battle", huh? So can I assume that the Father will get defeated in this chapter and the whole 108 with it's volume lenght will be an epilogue? 8D

WOW... lots and lots of pages these next two chapters, eh? I will have to pick up (or order) the issues from Kinokuniya or somewhere similar.

Thank you to those who have brought scans and translations so far! (And hang in there, Tombow! I'll wait patiently if it means quality translations!)

And, of course, Roy and Riza make me happy, as does the page with 42 characters, was it? Yeah, definitely buying this one (and the next) for posterity.
