Like I say before, I think Envy could "play" with Roy...

He can't kill Roy, but he can hurt Roy, phisycally or mentaly, and he can use Riza for this. Like Pride with Alphonse and Ed.

And we can't forget, Wrath told to Roy: If u try something, your subordinates and the first lietenaunt will come into danger.
And the point is: Roy try, he mess with the Homunculi's plans, and now, all the subordinates, including Riza are in danger.

But like all you said before, Hiromu is Hiromu, always making something completely unexpected...

The only thing I want is a big and cute royai scene... And this scene with Envy, Roy and Riza totally "useless" make me think about some theorys (a little bit mad or tragic, but with happy and Royai end). biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Hakoyanagi--Ah, mea culpa. I must've been too tired to catch it. (Unsurprising right now, but I digress...)

Well, if Arakawa-sensei tends to not give us what we expect and we're expecting Riza to not be all right... Let me put it this way: I'm REALLY hoping nothing seriously bad happens to Riza. Envy makes himself out to be Mr. BigMean'n'Nasty, but I get the feeling that, well, Pride goeth before the fall. There's a lot of people there who can deal with homunculi, too, so protecting Riza isn't going to be as difficult as it was during Roy vs. Lust.

I'm still rooting for Hoho to do something to Father that renders all the homunculi permanently useless. I wanna see Greed!Ling get one off on Envy, too, for some reason. Maybe it's just that Greed in his previous form was an antagonist to Envy? Hmm...

Anyway, I'd love to stick around and theorize some more, but I'm 1) out of ideas and 2) needing to do school work, as midterm exams are coming up. Ick.

Ahhh! Hurry up new chapter! XD Lol. I know it still won't come out for a while, but I want to know the fate of Envy, Roy and Riza! And to top it all off, the new anime is coming out next moth as well! I saw the video's on the home page, and I'm so excited! I can't wait to see it! They will finally be able to animate all the Royai in the manga XD YAY.

I am really hoping that Riza does not die in any of the next chapters! She can't! Think how emo roy would go after that! Losing Maes AND Riza.... I supose it might be too much for him.... I don't think he be able to cope... Unless he can 'get over' Riza's death like he kind of 'got over' Maes as best he could.

(I know this is kind of off topic, but I just held most of the FMA manga in my libaray! So now I can read and finally understand the plot line! YAY)

I don't think he would cope with it. In a way I guess it could be even worse than Maes's death because Roy blames himself for bringing this situation upon Riza. Maes became a military on his accord. Riza was drawn to it by Roy and he feels he's in debt with her for a lifetime. He blames himself too much for what happened already. And if it brought her death on top of that, it would be too much for him. I don't think he would accept betraying her trust again and 'ruin her life' more than he already did.

I am hoping so bad that they're in the next chapter. I'm thinking that a big scene like this is one Arakawa's been planning forever, and those are the kind that writers get excited about and just want to jump into, but you never know, she could focus on Ling or something next month. In which case I would probably die, but...we have to cross our fingers.

I think he blames himself for Hughes, too, because he died trying to push Roy to the top and digging up stuff. It's probably worse for the Elric brothers, but I think Roy carries some of that guilt, too. If Riza died...ouch, poor Roy Boy...

As long as he doesn't go to the north and start rambling about seeing people dying behind his eyes and decide he wants a hot air balloon to fly around Central, it's all good. tongue.gif

uhauahuahuahuah

Yes, he does blame himself for Maes as well... but I think the situation would be worse if Riza died, because all of their previous history... but that's just a wild guess XD
FMAobsessed
I agree with Turdaewen that if Riza died Roy would blame himself just because she joined the military because of him. But after the Ishbal war, didn't Roy ask Riza if she still chose this path even after what she saw? And to me it seemed that Riza willingly said she would still stay in the military. So maybe that comforted Roy a little bit. But I don't know.

I hope that the next chapter has the Roy vs. Envy battle. And I hope it has a Royai moment. And I mean a big one.
Saving_Grace
^Perhaps he'll lay dying in her arms....

Haha, no, I think Roy's gonna kick the living sh*t out of Envy.

Which would cause a world earthquake of the 10th level of the Mercalli scale. Could you please wait until the manga is done and then jump, I want to enjoy this manga till the end, before I die! xD

Don't worry I'm sure something major will happen, including Roy & Riza. I don't think Arakawa would turn to Ling or somebody else right now happy.gif

Lol, so true XD.

You guys really made me worried with the talks about Riza being in danger or being possibly killed. I never thought about this possibility when I read the chapter. I thought Envy's arse would be quickly kicked in the next chapter, but you guys made me think otherwise! If he goes into his monster form in such a small place... unsure.gif

Hey!!! don't forget me!!! o/ sad.gif

I'm worried, but not that much... I have no idea why! lol
jacksparrow589
^I'm a firm believer in Murphy's Law most of the time, but this just doesn't worry me, either. I still say that Riza, though in danger to some extent (Who ISN'T around Envy, I'd like to know!), is also surrounded by people who can--and for the most part would--protect her should the need arise.

The only danger I can see her really being in is trying to stop our favorite Colonel who is, at the moment, hell-bent on revenge. If Envy can't kill Roy at this point, I'd hazard a guess that killing Riza and thus breaking Roy rather thoroughly is off limits.

And we've got others trying to put a stop to Pride and Father--don't forget that. I mean, we all have yet to see, but I'm actually in the hopeful camp on this one.

I respect your opinion but I think the discussions increase the fun, we have more types of theorys to think and when we'll read the manga, we'll have the same OMG. tongue.gif
(it's a way to turn into a nuts too, because we never know what is going to happen, even with the theorys!!! )
I think the forum is just a way to spend our time (wait for the chapter) and share our theorys until the chapter is launched.

But opinion is opinion... wink.gif
thanks for express yours, it's nice do something like this...

Yeah, I get what you mean.. =)
I mean I do have my own 'theories' of what might happen, but they're just speculations as a result of reading and I'm sure everyone has those. I just don't think about it too deeply, and it works for me.

It's fun talking about it, don't get me wrong.

riza'slittlesister
I'm back from England!!!

Goodness, reading the pages that were written while I was gone, I really wished I was online to talk to you guys. I had a horrible thought on the flight back from the U.K. though. I don't think this will come to pass, because of the way that the chapters have been kind of chopped up into little sections recently, but what if we don't get to see any more of the Envy battle this month?!?!?!?!

(I really don't think this will happen, just look at the number of significant characters there, but it would be awful. (I also had a dream that my mail was redirected and I couldn't get any of my college admissions decisions. See a pattern?))

I don't think this battle is going to be a short one. I mean, it would be very atypical for it to be exactly like the Lust battle where *poof* Roya appears, exchanges a few witty remarks, and then crisps the homunculus, you know? -illustrated below-
threaten.gif blowup.gif

As far as Riza dying goes, I don't think it will happen right now. It just doesn't really fit somehow. Just a feeling, I guess. When I realized that, I started thinking about people who might die towards the end, people no one would expect right off the mark. A few came to my mind. Fury (I know there are lots of ways to spell his name, don't kill me!), Rebecca, Armstrong, etc. The other, horrible idea I had was that Black Hayate might die. That would be cruel, but doesn't it seem like the dog always dies? Just an aside, but now I have another.... being to worry about!

Not long now!
Causmicfire
^Ah, don't fear for Hayate, that would really make me tear up if anything happened to him

lol @ the illustration XD

As for not getting to see anymore of the Envy battle...wouldn't that be just like Arakawa, how long did she leave us hanging about Ed being seriously injured?

I'm guessing there will be at least 100 chapters, maybe 105, because that would be timed perfectly to end right before the anime would end, if they put out one new episode a week, that is.

Also, I don't know how many of you have been following news of the new anime, but Sloth-mangaSloth- is in one of the promo pics, so yay for manga story/adaptation!

Okay, back to the discussion. If Envy does imitate anyone, it will only be to play his mind games.

As for Scar possibly going after Roy when everything is over...not going to happen. Some chapters ago he changed. One of the priests said something along the lines of you have to be the change you want to see in the world, so he's no longer hunting alchemists, but if he doesn't die, he'll have to get far away from Armestris if he doesn't want to be punished for his crimes.

I don't think Fuhrer!Roy pardoning Scar would fly after how much fuss was made over Scar.

The rest of Mustang's team probably infiltrated the lab with him, and went in different directions, or made their way to H.Q. through the lab (and the Bradley house...where they might have taken Mrs. Bradley?)


I'm not sure if there was more I wanted to say, so I'll come back if I remember anything else.
jacksparrow589
^Yeah. Scar and Roy will never have tea parties or anything, but they've (well, mostly Scar) come to a sort of unspoken "live and let live" agreement. Scar's not exactly suited to city life, either, so he'll probably be on the run. I bet the last thing we see of him is everyone turning a blind eye to his escape. Heh, heh... oops?

riza'slittlesister-England? Lucky! Your illustration made me laugh.
lorasz
Wow! So much interesting discussion going on. I guess 93 is bringing everyone out of lurk mode (including me!)

I tend to agree with the consensus that Roy is safe for the time being. Got to keep the human sacrifices alive until all five are together. Although, I keep going back and forth as to whether Arakawa will actually do this. For a while, I thought she had dropped the human sacrifice thread all together, but it seems to have come back this last chapter. I'm always impressed by how she doesn't drop plot threads. :-) Will Riza's injuries be what make Roy open the gate to truly become a suitable human sacrifice? It seems kind of likely, but maybe too likely. I like to think Arakawa will take it in a less obvious direction. In any case, it just feels wrong to kill off Roy at this point. He kind of plays a mentor role for Ed, but not to the extent that Ed can only truly thrive in his absence (à la Obi Wan Kenobi or Dumbledore). Ed triumphing in his presence is more satisfying than Ed going on to triumph with him not around. And it's so depressing for all of his plans to end here.

As for Riza, aside from her possible sacrifice to make Roy a suitable human sacrifice candidate, I like to think that Arakawa likes her too much to kill her off. I've heard accusations that Riza had practically become a MarySue during the Ishbal flashback chapters (which I completely disagree with). But I get the feeling that Arakawa really identifies with her character and would have a hard time killing her off. Plus there have been enough military deaths/incapacitations to last the series. Time for someone else to take the casualties. If I had to guess, I'd go with Hohenheim and Scar. It's almost too complicated to leave them alive until the end of the series. On the other hand, all of these "guns are useless" references have me sweating. But, of course, I'm not Arakawa. Not nearly creative enough.

And of course, now that I've written my case for these two living, I'm completely afraid that it will go the other direction. Sigh.

As for a Royai ending? I could see it happening, but probably subtly. I'm a huge fan, in fact far too devoted to this couple, but I have to keep reminding myself that this is an action manga, not a romance. I think the anime (sans movie) ultimately struck the right tone on this, and can only hope the manga goes somewhat similar. We're obviously not going to see a wedding, or if we're honest with ourselves, even a kiss. But I think (and hope) that we could see them together. Maybe an introduction to Captain Mustang? Hmm... One can only hope.

So, this was kind of a novel. Apparently I've been holding this all in for too long. Can't wait for 94!
FMAobsessed
hi lorasz! I know that FMA is an action manga and not romance but we have a lot of shippers and supporters for couples don't we?

I too don't know if we will get an overly romantic ending for Royai. But I do want closure, and good closure for that matter. Although I do wish for a kiss. If that happened I think that this thread would reach 1000 pages or more.

FailToImpress
I doubt there'll be a ~lovely ending for them somehow. Closure would be nice but same again, I dunno if it'll be quite as in depth as people want. After all, it's not really the main focus of the story. But who knows, I sure don't. =)
rainbowcatgirl
All We Can Do Is Hope ^ ^ biggrin.gif
Hakoyanagi
I've always been a little curious as to how far Arakawa is willing to go with romantic stuff. Looking at all the blatant EdxWinry stuff she throws in there gives me a little hope, but then again this is Royai we're talking about, and they are a VERY different pair. (Personally, I'd like to see a kiss, though. smile.gif )

I really agree with lorasz here, in that the military seems to take most of the hits, and some other characters will probably go next. You never know, though; for some reason, I think there's a pretty good chance of Roy having a sad ending, and I can still see Riza dying just to show that Roy has no one left. (None of this paragraph makes sense... I'm sorry...)

Even if Riza does die, though, I don't see it happening in the next chapter. Roy's already busy with getting revenge for Hughes' death and all, and he's already so angry, and - I don't know, I don't see it working.

And I like that way of thinking, that Arakawa likes Riza too much to kill her off. I did read somewhere that Riza is one of Arakawa's, like, top four favorite characters. And there are a lot of characters.

I think FMA have more space for romance as other shounen mangas. Maybe the union of the brothers and their history open more oportunities for the subject Relationships and Love in general.

In the 4koma book (a official fma book just with omakes) we have a lot of omakes with "sub-shonen" themes including Royai or EdWin, but in the most of cases they bring a comic size.
If you want, I can bring some of them. (I have translate to English before, my version is in portuguese).
Turdaewen
Awww!!! I LOVE the 4koma book! XD
And yes, FMA does have more space for 'love' in general. Maybe that's also because it has a very mature story for a shounen. Even with it's fantastic storyline, it's very realistic in terms of human relations, dreams, disappointments... Arakawa is your sort of hole author. Unlike many mangakas, she really tries to build almost a 'novel' out of her works. I remember she said once that she had a very unique formation as a mangaka and that she was taught to really elaborate her stories very deeply, more than anything else in the manga.
I also remember she said she researched people who used to be soldiers in war to be able to write FMA, which I think it's a central idea in the manga: the dynamics and troubles of a country that lives for war making. In a way, its not about the Elric brothers, they're the choosen people to embody whatever she wanted to express.

So FMA is definitely not your everyday shounen, even if its categorized as one.
And the amount of female fans is a living proof of that.

I think we translated majority of FMA 4 koma omake on our board, and scanlated most of them, including ones from "toilet 4 koma Omake book" (or whatever we called it XD) and posted the translations/ or scanlations on "Hagaren Omake Scanlation" thread in FMA manga forum of our board, like this. I think Shirokage-san might have been busy lately, so the index on page 1 of that thread might not be listing more recently posted tranlstions/scanlations, nonetheless I think they are posted there on that thread, just not listed on the index on page 1 of the thread. smile.gif
FMAobsessed
Thank you for the information Tombow. I will go read them.

If you guys want to, I can translate the hole book and put it on the Omake Scanlation thread. Or at least the ones that are not there. ^^ It would be a translation from portuguese, but either way...

@Turdaewen - Please do!! ^^ And, if the double translation would results in too far from the original meaning in Japanese then I (or hopefully other members who can read raw also) may try to help. biggrin.gif If you're so kind as to check out latter pages of "Hagaren Omake Scanlation" thread you will see that quite few of them are already translated and posted on that thread. ^^

@FailToImpress - It's one of official FMA manga related publications, and it has the collection of "4-koma (4-panel)" comics done with the FMA theme, by Arakawa-sensei and her staff. Some of them were from past publications as those are often attached to FMA Volume books, official FMA guide publications, etc. as a bonus (omake,) and they also included some new ones that were not previously shown to public. The book is fun to read, and also to me it's a wonderful material to help me understand part of Arakawa-sensei's humor.

And, according to Arakawa it's also a very good toilet reading material! lmao XD
Really, Arakawa cracks me up! XD She the one person that I know who can make fun of her own characters as brilliantly.You get to know a little about the personalities of the characters as well.
Tombow
@Turdaewen - Exactly!! happy.gif
We had a fun time translating these "bathroom comics." She is so much fun!! biggrin.gif
And, thank you for your help with the translations!! ^^

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering what does this has to do with Royai, that above mentioned "Omake" thread contains some really funny Royai related FMA omake made by Arakawa-sensei. I posted some of these on this Royai thread here previously as we finished translating them. They're posted somewhere among these 900 plus pages here. tongue.gif
Or, maybe Turdaewen can kindly repost these here again for the newer members/posters of this thread when she sees them on "Omake" thread. ^^
Turdaewen
Of course! ^^
I'm actually translating them as we speak XD

Yes, I am!
I thought I've told you that before... anyways...

I have most the FMA books myself. At least the ones Anima Régia has translated. And I have some Japanese originals as well (the Perfect GuideBook 2, for example), but since I'm not a Japanese fluent speaker just yet (but I will be!), I don't get many of what's written.

So... I'm not only a HUGE fan, I also work as a news editor for alchemistPROJECT (it's a Brazilian FMA portal) ^^ But who knows?? maybe you have something I don't have XD (That would be great!)
RoyxRizaFan
I'd love to see these translations! Thanks, Turdaewen!

You know, talking about Arakawa so much...she's SUCH a good writer, and I'm having a huge Enligsh test tomorrow, and I wish I could talk about FMA rather than something like To Kill a Mockingbird (even though I love that novel) but I can't help but wonder what will come after FMA. I know she has other works, but I've never looked into them, and not many mangas (or anything I've seen/read at that) quite compare to FMA because of all the themes and relationships that are so deep, realistic, adn relatable...

And there I go, rambling about nothing as usual...*sigh*

Anyhow, I'm almost counting down the days until FMA 94...Arakawa, please do not disapoint us! Throw at last some Roy in there...

It's interesting to think about Roy opening the gate, because even though I hate stereotypical ideas, I can't think of anything else that would make him open it rather than something happening to her, especially since Wrath decided to use him after seeing how he acted around Riza after the Lust incident, saying something like "his good heart is his stregnth and his weakness"...Makes me wonder...I know no matter what it'll be excellent, though...and shocking, probably...

This is all if Father gets that close, though. Call me strange, but I'd love it if he DID get that close, and then his plans were foiled. I love it when the pressure's on and the characters save themselves in the last second. Call me a sucker for drama, but I can't help it (besides, didn't Ed and Al mention something about going through the portal to grab Al's body a while back? Ah, I can't remember anything LOL)

So true, I'm the same. But then if it actually happened like that then the Elric/Mustang Team would have killed two birds with one stone which would be awesome! So yeah a little drama can't do no harm happy.gif

Mentioning Wrath...wouldn't it be funny if he took Riza hostage again, since Roy took his wife. I know it's childish, the logic (you took my toy, so I'll take yours, type of thing), but don't people act illogically when angered?

As for Father being foiled at the last minute...isn't that the way Hoheheim works "Heroes always wait till the last minute" (something along those lines at least) is what he told Ed said during the fight when he put Pride in that dome. XD

Thanks for the info. You too, Turdaewen, I actually didn't know about it. happy.gif
Sounds really good, though.

I can't believe the new series is almost here, and it's really nice because the whole fandom will be back. biggrin.gif I kinda missed it.

Somebody mentioned that this FC's gonna reach 1000 pages.. I say waaaaaaaaay more happy.gif Yay for RizaxRoy! <3



Oh and I have a stupid question: howcome there isn't really an EdWin FC? There is a thread 'Will Ed & Winry ever fall in love?' but that hardly qualifies as a FC (I mean the answer is obvious..). Perhaps there is an EdWin FC but it just died out..?

@Hagane no Baka - To my knowledge, we have had many EdxWin threads popped up on our board in the past, and they got posts from both EdxWin 'shippers & anti-EdxWin people (notably, obsessed young teen Ed-lovers XD) and sometimes things got rather messy. XD
So, from what I know, currently there is one EdxWin thread that's designated for EdxWin 'shippers, and that is that EdxWin thread you mentioned, and there is one designated Anti-EdxWin thread where people who are passionately against EdxWin relationship can post and express their opinions, so that each side can have own thread where they can peacefully express their opinions without the other side "crushing" the thread.

As such, EdxWin fans are free to post and talk about all kind of EdxWin stuff, and have EdxWin love-fests & whatnot on that thread, just like Royai fans do so well on this one. biggrin.gif
I've directed EdxWin fans to that thread and encouraged to make a full use of the thread as a safe harbor for EdxWin 'shippers, and have a variety of EdxWin discussions to thrive on that thread... but so far it doesn't seem to be blossoming. unsure.gif
It's really up to them to make the thread thrive, or fizzle out and stay dormant. ^^

Hi!!! surely most of you don't know me !!! I used to post here xD...when Uni wasn't stealing my freedomm~~ xD

Riza's anime profile by Animax

RIZA HAWKEYE
Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye is Roy Mustang's most trusted subordinate. She would patiently accomplish all the tasks and paperwork which Roy, out of sheer laziness, would not do. She is a crackshot with various firearms. Considered as the voice of reason, she could be counted on to temper Roy's bursts of anger and scold him whenever he goes overboard with his emotions and his obsession towards women. While their current relationship is kept at a strictly professional level, both Roy and Riza have displayed subtle hints of mutual affection for each other.

Roy's anime profile by Animax

ROY MUSTANG (The "Flame Alchemist")
Colonel Roy Mustang has the ability to create flames with just a snap of his fingers. Although possessing a strict, almost cold demeanor, and often easily loses his temper, he possesses a compassionate heart for the suffering people of Amestris. Roy is also very ambitious, using his subordinates to pave the way to his becoming the Fuhrer. This goal is not without some measure of opposition though. Since his ulterior motive is to lead a country populated with women "wearing tiny mini-skirts", he is often a source of irritation for his ever-patient aide Riza Hawkeye.

Yeah, I was just reading these character bio/intro entries on that site.
Some of the bio entries are a little questionable, like they're calling Al's armor "automail." laugh.gif
But, so far I like their entries on Roy and Riza. biggrin.gif
