Ed: “Oh, First Lieutenant Hawkeye.”
Hawkeye: “What are you doing here so early?”
--------------------------
Ed: “Uh...um...” “I wanted to know...what’s going to happen to Tucker and Nina?”


Page 8:
Hawkeye: “Tucker was scheduled to have his license revoked and then taken to Central to be put on trial...”
--------------------------
Hawkeye: “...but they both died.”
--------------------------
Hawkeye: “Or, to put it more accurately, they were killed.” “You guys would have found out eventually, even if we tried to hide it, so I might as well tell you now.”
--------------------------
Ed: “What...why? By who!!?
Hawkeye: “I don’t know. I’m on my way to the location right now.”
--------------------------
Ed; “I’m coming, too!”
Hawkeye: “No.”
Ed: “Why not!!?”


Page 9:
Hawkeye: “It’s better that you don’t see.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “Hey, hey, Colonel Mustang.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “We came to get Tucker alive...”


Page 10:
Hughes: “Are you telling us to put this corpse on trial?”
--------------------------
Hughes: “Man, we didn’t com all the way out here from Central to do an autopsy.”
Mustang: “Lieutenant Colonel Hughes...you don’t need to remind us of our mistake. Please just take a look.”


Page 11:
Hughes: “Hmm...If this guy really used his own wife as an experiment, it must have been divine justice.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “Eww. Just as I thought.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “Are you thinking what I’m, thinking, Major Armstrong?”
Armstrong: “Yes, there’s no doubt about it.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “It’s him.”

Lust: “Look at that, Gluttony.”
--------------------------
Lust: Humans are such fools.”
Gluttony: “Fools. Fools.”
--------------------------
Cornello: “Quite right.”


Page 14:
Cornello: “But when things work out like you plan them, that foolish quality can be so nice.”
sfx: tmp
--------------------------
Lust: “Well, well, ‘Your Holiness’.”
Gluttony: “Holy. Holy.”
--------------------------
Lust: “Sorry you had to come out here.”
Cornello: “Yeah, well...when this is over, I’m going back to the city that I’m in charge of.”
--------------------------
Lust: “Really, I was a little bit worried that Fullmetal boy messed up our plans, but as a result our work will be finished ahead of schedule, so he was actually a big help.”
Cornello: “Heh, heh, yes.”


Page 15:
Cornello: “All it took was for you to spread some propaganda among my ‘followers,’ to get them started, and this is the result.” “Humans really are simple creatures.”
--------------------------
Lust: “Bloodshed begets bloodshed. Hatred begets hatred.” “The rage and emotion sinks into the land and stains it with the crest of blood.”
--------------------------
Lust: “No matter how many times they repeat themselves, they never learn. These sad fools...”
--------------------------
Cornello: “That’s why we can do anything to them, right?”
--------------------------
Gluttony: “Will a lot of people die again?”
Lust: “Yes, I guess they’ll die.”


Page 16:
Gluttony: “Can I eat all the ones that die?”
Lust: “No, you can’t eat them.”
--------------------------
Lust: “By the way, Envy, how long do you plan on using that voice and that body? It’s making me sick.”
--------------------------
sfx: pzzp
Cornello: “Come on, I’m just setting the mood, that’s all.”

Envy: “Are you trying to pic a fight, Lust?”
--------------------------
Cray: “Y-you’re a monster!”
--------------------------
Cray: What’s going on here.” “His Holiness...what happened to the real Father Cornello?”
--------------------------
Cray: “What in God’s name are you?!!”


Page 19:
Lust: “What should we do?”
Envy: “He called me a monster. I am so insulted.”
Gluttony: “Can I eat him?”
--------------------------
Envy: “By the way...”
--------------------------
Envy: “I heard that someone killed Shou Tucker from East City.”
Lust: “Tucker...Oh yes, the ‘Sewing Life Alchemist.’”
sfx: crunch rripp smack gulp rripp
--------------------------
Lust: “ Who cares? He was just a minor alchemist, anyway.”
Envy: “I don’t care about Tucker, but the killer.”
sfx: snap krak gulp crunch gulp
--------------------------
Envy: “It’s that guy from before again.”


Page 20:
Lust: “East City is where the Flame Colonel is, right?”
Envy: “Uh-huh. Apparently the Fullmetal Runt is there, too.”
--------------------------
Lust: “The Fullmetal Alchemist. It makes me mad that he got in the way of our work, but we can’t allow him to die.”
--------------------------
Lust: “He’s our human sacrifice.”
--------------------------
Gluttony: “Lust! That was tasty!”
Lust: “Wipe your mouth after you eat.”
--------------------------
Envy: “About this man...I don’t know who he is or where he’s from, but we can’t allow him to interfere with the plan.”
Lust: “All right, we’ve pretty much finished with this town, so I guess we’ll go take a look.”
sfx: wipe wipe
--------------------------
Lust: “That killer of ours, what was his name?”


Page 21:
Mustang: “Scar?”
Hughes: “We don’t know his name, so that’s what we call him.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Not only is his background a mystery, but we don’t even know what kind of weapon he uses or what his intentions are. It seems like he’s everywhere.” “The only information we’ve received about him is that he has a large x-shaped scar on his forehead.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “This year alone, he’s killed five alchemists in Central. In the country, he’s killed a total of ten.”
Mustang: “Yes, we’ve heard the rumors out here in the East as well.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “Between you and me, I even heard he killed old man Grand.”
Mustang: “Brigadier General Grand, ‘The Iron-Blooded Alchemist?’ He’s a military martial arts expert!”


Page 22:
Hughes: “It might sound crazy, but believe it or not, a guy this tough is roaming the city.” “Let me give you some advice. Double the security staff and lay low for a while. I’m asking you this as a friend.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “The only well known people out in these parts are Tucker and you, right?”
--------------------------
Hughes: “With what happened to Tucker, you really can’t let your guard down.”
Mustang: “Oh no.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “Huh? Hey, what is it?” ?
Mustang: “You! Confirm whether the Elric brothers are still at their lodgings. On the double!”
Hawkeye: Oh “Colonel.”
--------------------------
Hawkeye: “I spoke to them as I was leaving H.Q. They were walking down the main street.”
Mustang: “At a time like this.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “Bring the car around! All spare hands report to the main street area!!


Page 23:
Al: “Big Brother?”
Ed: “Huh? Oh, my head is just so full that I don’t know what to think right now.”
--------------------------
Ed: “Since last night, I’ve been wondering what this alchemy that we trust in really is.”
--------------------------
Al: “‘Alchemy is the reconstruction of matter in new forms based on the knowledge of natural laws.’”


Page 24:
Ed: “‘This world flows by obeying these laws. Death, too, is a part of that flow.’” “‘Accept the flow of the world.’ Our teacher really beat that into us.”
--------------------------
Ed: “I thought I knew what she meant.” “But I didn’t. That’s why Mom...”
--------------------------
Ed: “And that’s why I’m wondering what I can do about something that nobody can fix.”
--------------------------
Ed: “I‘m a fool.” “I haven’t grown up at all since then.”


Page 25:
Ed: Sigh “I thought that this rain would wash away all my doubt.” “But all I know is that this rain on my face is starting to bug me.”
--------------------------
Al: “But...”
--------------------------
Al: “I don’t even have a body that can feel the rain.” “It’s lonely inside here. It’s hard.”
--------------------------
Al: I want to get my body back.” “I want to go back to being human.”
--------------------------
Al: “Even if that means doing the impossible and going against the flow of the world.”
