And the chess scene! Woot! Do we know for sure that they're keeping it in? I guess they have to, as an introduction to Grumman and the chess thing shows up later, as well (in another one of my fave scenes)


Yes because it was in the preview of Ep. 12 *grins*

ah...now that we are talking about "papa Hawkeye" there is something bothering my head, I just watched again the new anime and I think that Hawkeye's father was in one chapter...well, he looks like him a bit....
Im just not sure and well and i want to know what you think about it xd
http://img99.imageshack.us/i/hawkeyesensei.jpg/ i think that it was the chapter when they are searching about the truth of the philosofal stone.

PS: I just want so mad that they animated the figth with lust and the isbhal part Omg I just going to die when I see it xD


Yeah. I noticed that one to. I didn't really think nothing of it because I think they were talking about Doctor Macho (Or however you spell his name.) And if I remember correctly, Papa-Hawkeye had blond hair. I think. At least that is what he looked liked in the Manga.

Actually, I don't think that was Hawkeye-Sensei, but rather just some guy they drew to represent an alchemist...

Then again, it'd could've actually been him as well. ::shrugs::
amestris_star
That should have been a reference to a curious alchemist... no no, Papa Hawkeye is very much different than that *nods*
rinoaebastel
Umm..the thing is that he have a similiar face and similar clothes...and it's like No way, he can be him? the different thing is the hair but...well XD

Ps: anyone know when hayate is going to show up? I want to watch that scene and what roy said about you know who x)
Gimpyhair
I don't think it's him: the hair are too different.
In the manga, Hawkeye-sensei's hair in side face looks a bit like Riza's http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/58/03/
http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/60/03/
See, the forelocks? Plus they are kinda spikey yes.gif

While here: http://img99.imageshack.us/i/hawkeyesensei.jpg/ the man doesn't have the same side-forelocks and the are more "bouncy" than "spikey", if you know what I mean. And I also think that papa have blonde hair.
rinoaebastel
Umm...yeah, it looks so diferent smile.gif
so...no papa in the anime for now, (im not going to say that he can have had an hair cut and dying hair xD)
hand-made-city
Wow seriously? The chess game scene is coming up that soon?? I haven't seen the preview for it yet.... I haven't even watched episodes 11 or 12 yet, so I'm going to do that now! Ohhh I'm so excited! I just watched the episode with the chess game in the first anime last night... it was so different though, and so impersonal. The conversation between Grumman and Mustang was so short... and of course no mentioning of marrying Grumman's grand-daughter!! ^^ This time around will be different!
sidekick.kep37
Yeah, I'm with most people as the curious guy was just it- a curious guy they made out to be an alchemist. I neverreally speculated on that image, but I'm pretty sure that's not Papa Hawkeye (this guy needs a first name...seriously...=_=).

Ps: anyone know when hayate is going to show up? I want to watch that scene and what roy said about you know who x)

I've been wondering that for an insanely long time. I mean, if they're cutting out all the little extras and whatnot, I was wondering "how are they going to bring up Hayate?" I'm dreading that Hayate just gets himself a curious snippet of a shot in one of the eps (with no backstory whatsoever) just to say "Hayate is here now! YAAAAY!" Wait... wait... o__0 Oh my God, an even worse case scenario would be cutting Hayate out of the series altogether- even though he is pretty vital to the show, IMO. I mean, they even cut out that guy Mason in Brotherhood... seriously now

And yesssh!!! Chessgame! Yay! I hope to God they put in t5hat little royai-gushy-goody-snippet we've all been wanting to hear so badly so we can all squeal with delight... XD... yes, even me.
Turdaewen
Why? They should make just like they do in the mangas: Hayate shows up and in the gaidens, Arakawa explains how he came to be.
They're making special OVAs for all of the DVDs, anyways, they might as well put it just like the "Blind Alchemist"

And the 'chess game scene' it appears in the preview. XD I believe they'll put it hole.
And about the scenes they're cutting down, they haven't cut anything 'relevant' to the story up until yet and, since most Royai scenes are vital to the story, I'm not all that concerned.
Gimpyhair
What I think could happen for Hayate, is that they put a short video at the end of a credits's episode and introduced him this way, kinda like Maes's "get a wife" *see my avatar scene*. Or else it could be an extra inside a DVD.
FMAobsessed
@Tombow Thank you for teaching me how to put up spoiler tags. smile.gif

I too thought Hawkeye-sensei had blonde hair like Riza.
Aribelle
I really hope they don't cut out Hayate. I can't imagine they would though...I mean, in the manga, aside from the gaidens, he was never officially introduced, and I really didn't think anything of it other than "oh, Riza has a dog". When I did read that gaiden it was kind of like a nice add on, but I personally think it will be okay if they show Hayate without showing his origins, or perhaps they'll work it into the episodes somehow. *shrug*
spectator
about Roy's hair, I think he looks super handsome in the new series during Maes's funeral. haha

Anyway, I'm still thinking on the manga ending, and it led me to recall the whole movie.

Oh man, the movie Roy is too 'emo'. He's like running away from comfronting Riza. I'm speechless to the fact that he could pull it out by saying: 'there is not enough room for two" (In chibi party, he even said: "cool, right?")

Were I in Riza's situation, I would pull out my gun and shoot at the hot air balloon. 'Is that so unbearable for you to face me?"

In that movie, I don't think the Elrics needed Roy's help. IMO, he was avoiding Riza. Really! If I knew the movie would turn out like that, I rather watched him die in the finale of the first series.

What! Just a second ago he was flirting with Riza and then he was avoiding Riza??

Phew! So much ranting for this morning.
FMAobsessed
@spectator I felt the same way during the movie too. Here's to a better manga ending for all characters. *Raises glass for a toast*
amestris_star
And this is just making me so happy for the sole reason that I haven't seen the movie *grins*
jacksparrow589
Aribelle--I hope Hayate's intro isn't cut out either, and the dog himself cannot be completely cut from the show--he's got some pretty important moments!

spectator--I wonder if it was Roy that needed the Elrics' help. You know, to feel like he could actually help someone. Regardless, Roy was pretty emo in the movie, and I like him better in the manga. He doesn't give up as easily.

FMAobsessed--Here, here! *joins the toast*
Kale Mustang
They'll probably introduce Hayate in some upcoming episode - probably after the whole crew move to Central - as he's already been featured in the production art work as well as in the merchandise. I like his coloring in Brotherhood more - he's more black and white than the black and gray from the first series.
spectator
@jacksparrow589: Well, everyone knows that the only one who needs help is Roy. Did the overthrown of Bradley traumatize him that much? I wonder if the military had hired a psychologist to counsel him. If the movie Roy is so scared of confronting Riza, he could just follow the Elrics and came to our world. If this story happened in real life, I guess his name in our world would as notorious as in the alchemy world.

@amestris_star:Good for you! I would warn any Royai fan who hasn't but wants to watch that movie: you'll get high blood pressure.
RoyxRizaFan
My sister wanted to watch the movie because she's never seen it, so I watched it with her the other day, and yeah, it wasn't as bad as the first time because I was expecting the Roy 180 (from the finale) and the terrible hot air balloon thing that makes my blood boil...but it still bugs me everytime I see it. Hughes as a Nazi always bugs me as well, because he's so solemn in the movie. I guess it's realistic that someone would be a Nazi considering the time and place, but why Hughes?

Ah well, this is getting slightly off topic.

It's strange that they cut out Mason, since he shows up later when those people are looking for Izumi, and Biddo is there...but that's not on topic either.

I won't be upset if they don't do a Hayate thing, but they better have him in the anime (yay for sorta on topic-ness!)
Aribelle
The movie is something I try not to think about too much laugh.gif it was just awkward, and Roy was really awkward, and yeah...not much else to say there haha.

But yeah, just having Hayate show up in a scene out of nowhere would be better then introducing him the same way they introduced Yoki, with a picture and a "oh BY THE WAY...this character might be important later so we're tossing him in the mix for continuity's sake, even though if you aren't familiar with the series you probably have no idea why this is relevant." Lordy.

But I've finally watched FMA: B 12, and yay for chess game next week!! I'm excited to see more Roy in general, I'm more interested in seeing his subplots than those of the Elrics, although that might change once Ling and Ran Fan come around and join up with them biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
Kale Mustang
Honestly...I can barely remember anything about the movie - though the art book for the movie has some really good pics.

I'll say this though about the movie - it does wrap up the loose ends for the first series quite well - but as a stand-alone movie, it could've been much better.

If they ever did a movie for Brotherhood, hopefully it'll be based off one of the manga gaidens or something...
rinoaebastel
I'm going to be sincere. I just want to see the chess scene and freak a bit and say wiiii I love it xDDDD

....Ah...better going to draw more fma comic...Im losing my mind thinking on that scene

He's on the sticker/cover for the Uso single (yes, these are my actual pics):

And here's the link on the official site for merchandise: http://www.hagaren.jp/products/etc.html

So he's in for sure...they just haven't introduced him yet in Brotherhood.
sidekick.kep37
Yay for Kale for reassuring us paranoid, overcritical Black Hayate fans! Super thanks! ^^ Now all that's left to do is wonder how they will go about introducing the beloved pup.

As for the movie, oh God, -headdesk- That made me go "Huh? o___0" at the end of it. That was really the most curious ....ake mushroom BONES could've ever pulled out of their asses. I bought the movie.. and the deluxe edition of the movie because I was that into FMA at the time and completely disregarded the fact that Riza had like... what, three lines in the movie? even though I was a mad-crazy Royai fan back then.

But, amestris star, avoid that movie unless you're really that curious. That movie really killed me cuz I really expected, like others, for there to be a royai scene after that "squeeeeeeee!" moment that happened in ep 51. Teensy weensy bit of a royai moment spoiler that lasted probably 1/2 a second: But the most we got was Riza giving Roy that "relieved yet passionate" look when Roy returned from his... emo world

FMAobsessed
Those pictures are cute. The one with Roy, Riza, Hughes, and Armstrong looks awesome.

The one with Ed and Winry back to back makes Ed so short. It makes it seem that he is younger. Although they are the same age. I always had the feeling the Ed was older than Winry.

Can't wait for a tech savvy person can make the pictures bigger.
Turdaewen
Did you see the little Riza keychain with hayate?? *.* it looks so cute!! XD and it's so Riza like, to fold her arms like that XD

And for the question some people where having about Roy's eye color, I guess it's safe to say that they're black, since all the original stuff from the manga and FMA: Brotherhood shows his eyes as being black, not blue or even a dark blue.

I could re-read these chapters all day!! It's sad that a lot of Royai moments happen when one of them is either in danger, in pain and injured, or mentally unstable. sleep.gif I could make up a list of them right now!! Sheesh!

I've noticed that, aside from Roy in 94-95, Roy and Riza really only lose their heads when it's something concerning either of them...like in 39, and before that at the end of the phone conversation. Coincidence? I think not. Fufufufu.

100% not coincidence. Definitely, and I agree with you on that with all my heart ;D

It's because they wuv each other... wink.gif

But seriously, I think it goes back to how their relationship is defined - they're so in tune with one another that just knowing that the other's in danger will cause them to do everything they can to see that the other is safe. It's like they don't even need words to really communicate with one another.

For example, when Riza tells Roy that Selim Bradley is a Homunculus, there was a shift in Riza's posture and tone that Roy seemed to pick up on and began to write down everything she was saying - for it seemed like he knew she was speaking in code.

To me, that illustrates just how much they trust one another implicitly.

Yeah, I definitely noticed that. They're really in tune with each other and can pick up on the most subtle of movements/tone etc. in each other. They're the perfect pair, really! Same with the phone conversations, both the incident with Gluttony and with Pride. The scene with Gluttony's attack was particularly amazing, because Roy absolutely knew that he had to get to the scene as soon as possible or something awful was going to happen like with Hughes. And he made it in time!

Umm... no. Roy picked up Riza's signal when Riza TAPPED the coffee mag TWICE. That was the sign that the code was coming, and at the end of "code talk" Riza taps the mag again (only ONCE this time,) and that was the signal that that was the end of code. That was clearly indicated in the use of SFX in the scene. There was NO change in Riza's posture, etc. there, and my guess is almost the other way, and I think Riza was trying to keep everything (her posture, voice tone etc.,) as SAME/UNCHANGED as possible when starts talking in code (that's my guess, reading that scene) because Riza was trying to AVOID being detected by Pride in the shadow. smile.gif

Yes, I did notice the taps...though it's probably my subconscious that noticed the shift in her demeanor (the way she drank from the mug and the way it looks like her right foot is up slightly - like she's bending her foot - I tend to do that motion before I shift in my seat) laugh.gif

Still though, the code scene was great moment in Royai moments. Can't wait to see it animated.

@ Tombow: Oh... well I'm not gonna lie. I probably would've never noticed the SFX in that page mainly because I can't read that stuff.

Initially, I thought exactly as Kale did- that the two of them were just so in tune with another they could pick up on something right away. I didn't actually think that it had something to do with Riza's posture or any sudden movements, but more like how she acted. But, hey, it's all wishful thinking- for me anyways.

And I can't wait to see that animated. First time I read through that, I was like "What's with the curious names all of a sudden?" And I really didn't feel like playing decoder and just wanted to read and absorb the chapter as I do every month, knowing that it will all make sense sooner or later.

Wait... wait... yeah, I can't wait to see allthe Royai scenes animated. XD
