@Causmicfire: AAH! Thank you so much! I couldn't follow the Royai festival because my stupid computer crashed, so this is awesome! It'll save me sooo much looking. Wow... Everyone did such an awesome job!
Miss MP
It looks as if I missed this festival by a couple days . . . =( I joined a tad too late.
jacksparrow589
Miss MP--Well, at least you don't have to just look all the way back through every single post. Not that those conversations weren't fun in and of themselves, but it's all there for you! And, of course, there's always next year!

Causmicfire--Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for putting together the album! You are wonderful!

Kale and amestris_star--I STILL haven't gotten around to reading your fic. I promise I will at some point this summer! It's just been really hectic.

No worries. Read when you can. Then you can witness the sheer craziness of our fun little story. Also, with this fic, you can try to figure out who's writing who. smile.gif

Same here! I'll try and find time after all my summer homework is done to sit down and read the whole thing (I hate rushing through reading)

@ Miss MP -
I don't think I've welcomed you yet, so it's great to meet you and have you on the RoyAi forum!
Hakoyanagi
Wow... so much discussions... *is too lazy to go back and read anything*

@Miss MP - Welcome!

@Causmicfire - Omg! Thanks so much for the compilation! That must have taken a LONG time! Yay, now I can go read everything I missed/was too lazy to read before!

As a side note, I was finally, FINALLY able to go to the bookstore today to read the new book 18, with that EPICAL Royai scene in it, and upon reading the 'how does he have such good timing' scene, I fangirl-squealed so loudly that I was told by 3 or 4 staff that I was 'making a scene.'

IT'S ROYAI. DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND...?

@Hakoyanagi - I was actually out with my family shopping when I picked up my copy of 18, and was smiling like a loon as I read through it while walking through the mall with them, RoyAi, Edwin, & Oliveer, my heart was oh so very content. Also adding some love for your sig in there with armestris_star

The scene I really can't wait to see animated is the moment in chapter 56 where he panics because she was waiting for him and runs back to the car only to find Armstrong there, and hopes she's safe. Then out of the blue she returns, they have short little conversation, and she follows him to the car.

Probably my favorite moment because Mustang's facial expressions crack me up, Mustang's aside about finding a "mustachioed"* muscelman in place of Hawkeye, and Hawkeye throwing his "never give up" attitude back at him.

Also, there's a link to the album in my sig in case we get too far away from the page where I posted the link.

I got around to watching ep 13, I'm a bit sad I missed the live streaming, first one since it started, and it had to be the one where Yoki was introduced with his hate for Edward, and Greed was introduced...I love the original Greed & Devil's Nest. I am a bit saddened by the fact that they gave time to Havoc's girlfriend woes, but not the marry my granddaughter bit, though the chess scene was done quite well.
hand-made-city
Oh, I LOVE that scene, where Roy rushes back to look for Riza and he's disappointed that she's gone. And then he starts to worry that she's already been called away... it was really cute, and he looked so relieved that she was alright! Gosh, ALL Royai moments are the best!

Please Bones, no more of this leaving out potential Royai-ness!
Tombow
^ I love that scene, too!! ^^

Now I need to go back and catch up on the past week or so.

Causmicfire, you are beyond awesome!!
Thank you sooooo much for compiling the Album for the 2009 Royai Day Festival!! That was one huge Album!!! That must have been tons of work!! ohmy.gif
Also, thank you so much for organizing this year's Royai Day Festival!!
It was a huge success, and I had a great time, and now we can easily go back and enjoy it all over again by visiting the Album!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! *bows down to your greatnesss* happy.gif

@Causmicfire thank you so much for the album, I can watch now and don't get lost biggrin.gif

Oh, that scene always made me jump in a cloud of happiness
jacksparrow589
I'm in agreement with Causmicfire about loving that scene in 56. Another priceless expression from Roy. I'm used to seeing him a bit more composed, though a lot of what he's feeling does show on his face, if only for a panel or two. (Glaring exceptions to this being Lust vs. Roy and Roy (& co.) vs. Envy.) But when Armstrong appears in that scene, I'm always reminded of episode 37 (from anime 1, of course) where Havoc sees Armstrong's mom and goes, "She's a freakin' giant! That's not normal--That's not normal at all!"

Hakoyanagi--They actually said you were making a scene? And here I am, miffed when I'm practically whispering into my cell phone with no other customers around and I'm told to be quiet! Royai demands respect in the form of fangirlish squealing!

Forgiven--Thank you for sharing those arts! I love the "useless" one, and the collage of manga bits. That collage reminds me of an mmv on YouTube--"Until the Day I Die". Can't remember who did it, but it's a pretty awesome Royai mmv.
Saving_Grace
Ah! I'm so annoyed at myself for missing Royai day! I was all, "la-de-da," then all of a sudden BAM! Oh dear! It's the 16th of June! I've missed it! Ah well. Looks like you guys went all-out this year.

I LOVE that mmv! I am in a Royai mood right now - so here are some mmvs (BTW, I made NONE of these) -

Rise - Mostly about the gang, third favorite after two at the bottom.


Valentine's Day


Requiem Aeternam

We are Responsible - Kinda Royai, with more about the Ishbal War


So Contagious


Slow Dancing in a Burning Room - Probably my favorite.

and finally...

Until the Day I Die - Favorite along with above.

I think I'll make some mmvs when the series is over. I don't want to make an MMV and put so much time and effort into it, and then come to an epic chapter that fits the song even more. So...yeah. I already have at least 4 songs I wanna do. XD

Yes, sadly I was actually told that at the bookstore. XDDD At least you guys understand! I think the salespeople were also angry because they expected me to buy the book after all that, but sadly I only have the first 4 books. In which there is hardly any Royai. Except for epic-Hughes-funeral-scene.

And thank you to the people who complimented my sig! It was made by the awesome tasogare-san!

And omg I looooooved that chapter 56 scene. It was one of the first scenes where it was Roy thinking about Riza, instead of the other way around. (does that make sense?)

Except, not that I mind it or anything, but Roy's one line in that scene has always bugged me a bit. The part where he says something about seeing a muscleman in place of the "young woman he's expecting." Something about the way he referred to Riza just seemed the tiniest bit OOC. Does anyone else see that?

I love Riza's expression when she shows up, though. It's so cutesy!

@Forgiven and DistantBlue: Thanks for sharing the pics and mmvs, respectively!

As for episode 13, maybe the anime people didn't know about Riza being Grumman's granddaughter, so they didn't think that part was all that important. Or maybe they're just continuing on their sad little quest to suck all the Royai out of FMA. Thankfully, most of the upcoming scenes CANNOT be left out.

EPIC LONG POST! I'M SORRY!!!
angelstar2408
I agree!!! If they dare take out the upcoming Royai scenes they are soooo dead... Joke! tongue.gif

I think the reason why they didn't emphasize on the scene is because they(I repeat THEY) find it unimportant(yeah right... dry.gif) Probably they're saving on air time and adding more Elric siblings scenes... pfft...dry.gif
Aribelle
Yeah, it sucks that some of these good manga scenes are getting cut. I know that FMA is mainly about the Elric brothers, and I do like them, but they're not the reason I got hooked...I'm much more interested in the military/Xing people biggrin.gif...and Royai of course! \o/ if they cut out some of the great Royai scenes I will weep.
The_Twilight_Trinity
I really can't think of Royai moment that they could possibly cut. Not any of the big ones anyway. And I totally forgot about the scene where Roy freaks out when he finds Armstrong! And also the "I'm proud of my pig-headedness" line which comes before that. Really, I don't think that they can cut any Royai moments at all, but if they do.... *cocks a handgun* I'm going after them.
hand-made-city
Thank you DistantBlue for all those MMV links! Can't wait to watch them!

Lately I've been inspired to make a Royai AMV or MMV... but I don't know what song, or what footage/images to use.. any theme ideas that anyone would want to see? And someone convince me to do it! XD

Me neither! All the most important Royai scenes are major plot line scenes. There's no way they're cutting Lust's death, nor the tatoo, nor Ishbal, 'cause they're all vital to the 'Envy' part (which is probably the most important Roy scene so far). They're all a big build up to why the hell Mustang listened to Riza at that scene even against his grief towards Hughes' death. It's all a big chain of events that have no meaning without any of those scenes, so... I'm not worried at all.

The tops that they can remove is the scene Roy saves Riza from Glutonny, but, even so, he'll have to get there somehow, cause Roy needs to follow Barry with Riza and Havoc to get to the lair... So, I don't think they'll cut that scene either, since it was the fear of loosing Riza that drove Roy there. Unless they change the whole development of that 'plan' of theirs.

But the chess scene, though very cute, has no consequence whatsoever. In fact, if you're not familiar with the Perfect Guidebook 2 you wouldn't even notice it as a Royai moment, since nowhere in the story they mention Riza to be Grumman's granddaughter.

Agreed. I think that it’s possible for them to cut that scene without ruining the plot progression too much, but at the same time, the removal of that scene means a lot less Royai. The only reason I can think that they’d cut that scene is that they’d want Roy to be there during the mission to save time. But if he’s there, then there would be no “Elizabeth” scene… And that would be terrible. And also, if he didn’t come onto the battle field when he wasn’t supposed to, Riza wouldn’t have to yell at him, which isn’t such a big deal as the loss of the “Elizabeth” scene, but I really like it anyway. So really, I really hope they don’t cut that part either. Too much good Royai!
Turdaewen
Or they could come up with another way to make Roy want to go there in the middle of the fight, but then again, that wouldn't make much sense since it would take probably as much time as the 'Elizabeth' scene as it is.

But, taking into account they're condensing 2 to 3 chapters into each episode (and the sequence of Elizabeth, is very 'short'), there's enough time for that scene, so they might put it the way it is.

No way to tell, but I'm also happy that it won't take long for us to find out, since it's probably 3, 4 ep till we get there.
Aribelle
Yeah, all of the Royai moments are important for the plot development, and since the point of this anime is basically to show events in the manga that the first didn't, there is really no reason for anything to be cut. Especially if they don't want to catch up with the manga. I mean...what would be the point of a second anime that's supposed to follow the manga if they cut things out? It makes no sense. And since we're finally getting close to manga only material, things should slow down biggrin.gif

And if they do cut any of my favorite scenes, Bones shall feel my fiery wrath rain down upon them D:

And you would have to count me in for that... *evil laugh*

No they shouldn't considering that they are finally close to the manga-only stuff (only an ep to go after all!) so... nope they shouldn't cut things out. They left details in, why should they cut important scenes out? Let's have faith... at least I hope that such scenes are kept there in their entirety, after all that's their epicness tongue.gif
Forgiven
I don't think any Royai moments should be cut out. Hahaha.
Miss MP
The new season / show has a chance to redeem itself if it executes its Royai well; I haven't liked it, at least, not more than the first anime, but I'm hoping once the pace slows down there will be less to criticize. After reading the manga and loving it, the scenes cut out whether important or not, I missed and felt it made the entire story choppy. If they follow the manga closely enough, most of the "big" moments occur in the flow of the plotline not only due to being important, but the "hints" are interwoven incredibly well into the progression [which is common for action-like genres].

And since the Royai hasn't slowed or faded in the manga [if you are up-to-date], it will not likely be downplayed in the new episodes to come, either.
FMAobsessed
If the Japanese staff leaves out any upcoming Royai moments. Then they must have a death wish or something. But like everyone else has said, they really can't leave out any other Royai moments. I mean the manga shows so much growth with all the characters. It would not do the manga justice if Brotherhood just decided that only Ed and Al should be allowed to grow.

LOL! I agree with what you said..... tongue.gif
Turdaewen
Nah, I'm loving this anime either way and I'm enjoying it LOADs better than the first one... but I agree that they shouldn't cut down so many scenes.

But I'm sure something will have to be left out, I just don't think it's going to be anything Major (as the Royai scenes) because they're way too important to the story.
Michiyo-
Yeah, some Royai moments, for example the tattoo, the Ishbal flashbacks are really important to the story, and have connections to the present storyline, too. So those shouldn’t be left out.

Royai moments in the upcoming episodes: first the Roy-Riza-Barry meeting, then we’ll finally get to the phone conversation scene (biggrin.gif) and then the Roy vs. Lust battle. Those will definitely be awesome.

By the way, only one week left until chapter 97! I hope we’ll get to see Roy and Riza now. I really wanna know what they’ll do after Envy’s death.
Hakoyanagi
I've never had much faith in the FMA anime people, although the new season is good. They seemed to be on, like, a quest to cut out Royai wherever they could. (except, of course, for ep. 51 of the first season, which I still disregarded because it seemed OOC.) Ed and Al are the main characters, but they're not the only characters.

They BETTER make Roy super-jealous in the Barry scene. But really, just seeing Barry coming on to Riza is going to be the funniest thing ever. I hope they keep anime-Riza's reaction the same. Yay for whipping guns out of shopping bags!

And I'm not expecting Roy and Riza in chapter 97, honestly. We just had a few chapters of HUGE Royai moments, so it seems like it'll probably be someone else's turn for a while.

I'm probably just being a pessimist because I'm ticked about having to leave for a weeklong camping vacation. The morning of the 11th. Of course.

Nah, don't worry, I have your same thoughts exactly, even on the anime related matters. They'd better do him VERY jealous <3 It's just how he is in that instance biggrin.gif

And... me too, I suspect it'll focus on Hoho and Father of course, and Al and Mei and co. We haven't seen much of them lately... so... there. I suspect it'll be difficult for us to see our sweethearts... *sighs*

PS. I'll be leaving for a week, so I'll be missing in action till the 9th. I'll be back on board on the 10th! Will miss ya all! *hugs*

By the way, only one week left until chapter 97! I hope we’ll get to see Roy and Riza now. I really wanna know what they’ll do after Envy’s death.

Already?! The months go by so fast ^^'' well, I guess that's a good thing biggrin.gif

I've never had much faith in the FMA anime people, although the new season is good. They seemed to be on, like, a quest to cut out Royai wherever they could. (except, of course, for ep. 51 of the first season, which I still disregarded because it seemed OOC.) Ed and Al are the main characters, but they're not the only characters.

They BETTER make Roy super-jealous in the Barry scene. But really, just seeing Barry coming on to Riza is going to be the funniest thing ever. I hope they keep anime-Riza's reaction the same. Yay for whipping guns out of shopping bags!

I totally agree, I mean I like Ed and Al and all but there are other important characters!! Other characters! And yeah, I hope they do justice to the Barry scene! That is one of my favorite scenes :3 I really don't think they can overdo it, so they better go all out.

Yeah, I don't think we'll see any Royai in 97 sad.gif but it's okay, since we got so much a couple months back. I would love to see some Lin/Greedlin/Ran Fan action though! If I can't have Royai I want Lin x Ran Fan lol.

Oh nooo... suddenly I'm not getting email alerts for this thread, though I'm still apparently tracking the topic. I get alerts for other threads, but somehow not this one. And it sucks because this is my FAVORITE thread!!! What is the problem? *cries*
EDIT: Oh... I suddenly got an alert. Jeez. It's only been about a week!

Ah well. Anyway, I'm very excited for chapter 97, but I suspect we'll still have to wait until we'll see Roy and Riza again. I imagine Arakawa has moved on from that and is focusing on other events right now. The wait will make their next appearance even better! Even if it's torture for us now.. heh.

And Hakoyanagi, I agree, I want to see Riza pull out all those guns when she's approached by Barry! She's got guns hidden all over the place!!! laugh.gif The shopping bag one was the most epic. I wasn't expecting that!

And bon voyage to amestris_star!!! Have fun wherever you're going!

Ha ha! I love that part! I hope it's just as epic in the anime! And I think they'll definitely play that up, so most likely it will be super epic.

I'm not so optimistic about seeing Royai in the next chapter, though it's possible. We really do need to see where Al is, and also Mei, but still because Ed is with Roy and Riza's group I'm not completely ruling out a scene with them in it.... Which is to say that I'm praying to myself that they will be a Roy/Riza scene next chapter. Realistically though, I'm pretty sure we'll see what's happening with the other groups and not Royai. *tear*

Been around Artist Alley at the Anime Expo, and the number of FMA merchandise has definitely risen, unfortunately not a lot of Hawkeye, what's that about?

Aww that sucks. If I ever manage to nab an artist's table at a con near me, I'm going to have prints with LOTS of Roy and Riza!!! <3

So, there wasn't a lot of Hawkeye, but what about Roy?
Causmicfire
Lot's of Roy, some really good life-like prints, I did get an artist to say they'll comission a Hawkeye poker-face sticker, I bought all her other FMA ones, Roy's is great, I'll take and post pictures when I get home, but I hope I get there in time to request a Hawkeye, Fuery, & Havoc from her, so I'll be able to crack up when thinking of them and the paintings of dogs playing poker.

Got one of the cool Roy miniature Brotherhood figures, so did Kale Mustang.

Here's a post with the picture of the figures, both of us we're lucky and picked the Roy ones (they're a blind boxes, so you pick and hope you're lucky). I got Roy with his eyes closed, and Kale Mustang got the snapping Roy.
hand-made-city
That's awesome! And lucky that you both got Roy! Really cool!

I just checked the website for the NY Anime Festival, since that's the nearest one to me... and the artist tables are kind of expensive, but one day I will save up for it! I noticed that one of my friends from school has a table. o_o I didn't know! I wonder if maybe he likes FMA too.. I'd love to see lots of FMA stuff at a con... if I ever go to one! Jeez! I've never been to one. But I will certainly be a Royai advocate if I go one day!
Hakoyanagi
Yeah, I have a feeling they'll play up the whole Riza-whipping-guns-out-of-everywhere thing too. However, I am not so optimistic when it comes to the Roy being jealous thing. But COME ON. He was threatening to TTL-FLAME-PWN him. And he looked SERIOUS. *grumbles*

@amestris-star - Have fun on vacation! Lucky, you won't be missing 97... *grumbles more*

And omg, you guys are sooooo lucky to get those figures! But yeah, what is with the lack of Riza? I'm talking everywhere, in general. She's apparently one of the general public's favorite characters; I mean, she ranked higher than, like, Al and Winry in the last popularity poll, didn't she?

Normally, in most manga I see, the 'main' characters and the general most-well-liked characters seem to match up for the most part. Riza's pretty much the only character I can think of that's gone against that. So why don't people get that WE WANT MOAR RIZA?! (does any of this make sense?)

FMAobsessed
At anime boston there wasn't too much Royai stuff in the artist alley. There was a done of Naruto.

I WANT ROY AND RIZA TO AT LEAST APPEAR IN CHAPTER 97!!!!!! MAYBE IF I TYPE IN ALL CAPITALS IT WILL COME TRUE!!!!!
black~hayate
Well, let's see...

The next chapter will have Hohenheim, we all know this.
And since the Sloth battle is over, Izumi and her husband wanted to leave...
So there might be some "empty space" in the chapter, that can be filled with fresh Royai...
FMAobsessed
@black~hayate: I like that idea a lot. I like Olivier and Alex and their fight against Sloth was amazing. But it is done now. Lets fill that space with a Royai moment.
