And I just remember this game was supposed to happen just before Briggs, which means Riza would already be the Führer's secretary... Maybe that's why she sticks so close to the prince???

Ohhhhh. Great point!! Maybe that partially accounts for Riza's sad face?? (Just making some wild guess. ^^)
Full-Fledged Alchemist
-gasp- !!! What game is that from?

Oh, true but I like more theory about Prince hitting on Riza and jealous Roy. But darn, Roy in prison I really need to know what's going on there~! I wonder...Riza is saying something in this trailer...anyone knows what is it? Gah, I'd love to see this subbed... I need to know what happened between them, I mean something happened, I'm sure of it (just look at their expressions!)
Ah, you're welcome^^

jacksparrow589
Ohh, this new game is fascinating! Riza!Envy? Say it ain't so! I have to know more about what's going on with this story! The screencaps are great, but, like Turdaewen, I can't get over Roy in a Hawaiian shirt. It... almost works. Just not quite enough to really make a go of it.

Riza looks beautiful, but she also looks so sad! Come on, Roy, cheer her up!

Off-topic: Hah! Found the Silver Alchemist in the preview! Still need to get my eyes checked, though.
Michiyo-
I really wanna see that trailer subbed, too.
I wonder why Roy is imprisoned. Maybe he had a conflict with the prince?
And why is Riza so sad on that screencap? Something must've happened between her and Roy. By the way she looks really beautiful in that purple dress.

We have to wait a whole month until the game comes out in Japan and someone uploads more videos or gives information about the story. This will be a long wait.
AndroidLust
Those scans made my day!!!
Soooo excited to play this game, I can`t wait for it. And Hawaiin shirt Roy. :3
But poor Roy in jail? And Riza looks so sad in some scans, it makes my heart hurt. ;_; I don`t know how I feel about the Prince...:<

And Kale, I`m super jealous over the Royai goods you got. I`d add all the phonestraps to my phone. (I`m one of those people whose amount of phone charms weigh more than the phone tongue.gif) However, when you compared Roy to Ken, the first thing I thought of was Roy being nad-less. I couldn`t help it! laugh.gif
hand-made-city
WOWWWW! I am so excited for this game to come out so we can see what the heck is going on with Roy and Riza! I was pretty sure that the game took place after Riza became the Fuhrer's assistant, otherwise we probably wouldn't have seen nearly as much of her in the screencaps... so I guess her being taken by Bradley was a blessing in disguise, in some twisted way. tongue.gif

Gaah I can't get enough of those screencaps! Riza in a pretty dress... Roy in........ prison gear? That darn prince whose motives we have no idea of as of yet... so much!! I'm excited to hear more about it!

Thank you! I wish I had a Wii...but my friend does! biggrin.gif
Alzea
You're welcome^^

Ah, lucky you. I don't have Wii and I don't think that any of my friends has one or maybe... I'm not sure since I don't really play video games. Still even if I'd somehow get a game, it's in Japanese, we just have to pray that someone will release this in Europe/America then I will find someone with Wii xD And we will be able to enjoy royai stuff from this game (since I'm sure there must be royai even if there is none we still get Roy in prison or some Riza-centric events)~

Still I'd like much more to see this story in light novel or manga~
Makika
Oh boy.. This game will be excellent! *---*

This new trailer..
Winry friend of Armstrong little sister? WT?

I think the party when Riza is in purple dress is like a
reception party for the Aerugo's prince...

Maybe this game can have Royai, but I won't expected anything,
this games in general are projected for boys/kids.. They always put
just action, missions and cut all the feelings, it's sad.

But... BTW, we have to wait to get some more information...

Changing topic, I hope they don't cut parts of the Barry scene, or the chess scene
but I don't know... This anime is so fast, I hope they stop with this "fast style" now, when
the anime it's in the manga point...

Winry and Catherine being friends=Ed's worst nightmare

*imagines*
Catherine (to Winry): "You should go for someone tall and muscular like my brother!"
Ed: "Who you calling so short you can't even squash them with you shoes!"
Winry: *throws wrench* "Don't yell at my friends."

Okay, okay, back on topic...

I do agree that the pace is still quite fast, but they've just got to the real separation from the first anime, and were probably rushing to get there, so people don't get bored. We'll see in the next couple weeks, but the manga is also quite fast paced to begin with.

I'm not too worried with them cutting stuff...yet, it's seems they've proven able to bring back in what they've left out...take Yoki for example. The further they get though, the more careful they'll have to be about cutting stuff...I'm sure Arakawa is working closely with them, just as closely as she did with the creators of the first anime.

Also, trying to find the business card of the place we got the figures from, and then when they update the site you guys can buy it, too! XD

Here's one site that sells fanmade stuffs: I Hate Leeks They make a lot of cute charms, right now their inventory is low b/c Anime Expo and other conventions, but keeping checking back, they made some adorable FMA charms, and they do commissions! My friend bought Roy, Hughes(who was on the phone), and Riza.
iAmjelly
OH WOW, those screencaps made my day. I have a sudden urge to go and blow all my money off on a wii just so I can play that game when it comes out.

Btw, hi guys - newbie on the forums here!

Hahaha, I like the site! *so cute things in there *---*

Wellcome iAmjelly!

Hi iAMjelly! welcome to the site!

Roy in a hawaiin shirt. If he had a fanny pack and a camera he would look like a tourist.
Turdaewen
Welcome, iAmjelly!!

And I don't think they're THAT fast with the anime... I mean, of course they're faster than FMA 1, but, than again, the 1st anime was REALLY slow motion.
I think Brotherhood is closer to the pace of the manga than FMA 1. And maybe that might give us, the old fans, the impression that things are moving way too fast because we're used to the speed of FMA 1.

That combined with the completely new features from now own and the importance of the scenes ahead, I'm not concerned at all.

Helloo all~ 8D
I've been lurking for who knows how long... tongue.gif I made an account a couple of weeks ago and only started posting today. e__e;

Anyhow, I got a dream yesterday and it was Royai themed [about freaking time e_e]. It was a cute fluff. Perhaps I'll type it up and pass it off as fanfiction. tongue.gif

hand-made-city
Hi new members!!!

I've had about... two or three dreams with Roy and Riza. They were adorable, but I can't remember much of them anymore. My latest dream involved Bradley though. It was scary. o_o

Speaking of him, when's he coming back in the manga? He's definitely alive.. Is he done pulling Hawkeye's strings to keep Mustang in line? Cuz that plan didn't seem to work out anyway. laugh.gif She's too devoted to Roy.

No clue, when's the last time we saw him? I just started reading the manga and I kinda rushed up to this point. x_X

@hand-made-city -He's actually back in 97, a mention of Roy, but no Roy and/or Riza.

Oh, you should come to China then. Fanny packs are apparently all the rage now for men. Almost all of my uncles have one laugh.gif

Hello, iAmjelly and Leafspire!

Hm, Royai dreams... I had one a few years ago where they were in a collapsing cave, and I honestly have no idea whether they made it out alive or not. Sounds like something I could make into a fanfic later on, but it was just that little bit, even though it seemed to go on for hours.

Concerning chapter 97: (spoiler tagged just in case) He's ba-ack! I was pitying Falman there for a moment, but it looks like things will be okay on his front. I gotta wonder what he'll do about Mrs. Bradley, though. Something tells me he'll be all, "Thanks for saving my wife, but I still have to kill you." to Roy if they ever meet up again. Or he could pull a Greed and help everyone out for his own gain. If he survives this encounter with Greed, that is.
FMAobsessed
I had a Royai dream. It was the end of the manga and Roy and Riza are working together. And they both seem really close. And they have wedding rings. At the end they both leave together. But they go in different directions saying that they have to go home to their spouses. So it was more like a nightmare to me. Because they were married to different people, and not each other.
RizaXRoy
@iAmjelly and Leafspire: Hello~Welcome to Royai thread!! Enjoy your stay!! biggrin.gif

@Kale: wow..thanks for sharing!! I like the last figurehead Roy!! It's funny to see Scared Hayate with Riza laugh.gif

FMAobsessed: This is truly a nightmare!!

Thanks for the link, Alzea!! I'm so curious about what are they doing!! Riza looks sad..she probably does not want to leave Roy and I'm definitely agree with your theory!! hope our dreams come true laugh.gif

Why Roy is imprisoned? Probably Prince is really fall in love with Riza, Roy is jealous and does something to Prince so Prince imprisons Roy!! laugh.gif *Royai fangirl dream*
Alzea
Welcome iAmjelly and Leafspire to the Royai Thread!!

Mwahaha, royai theories about game=love biggrin.gif

FMAobsessed, oh, I feel sorry for you, this is real nightmare xP

So, it look like there won't be any Roy/Riza in the next chapter since there is Greed!Lin vs Bradley fight coming and who knows, Arakawa will probably show us something more about Hoho and Father or so I hope since I need to know what's going on there
Michiyo-
Welcome iAmjelly and Leafspire! It's nice to have more and more Royai fans here. happy.gif

I have the same theory as RizaXRoy about why Roy is imprisoned . Who knows, it may be true. biggrin.gif I'd like that.

About Royai dreams: I don't remember it exactly, but once I had a dream when Roy asked Riza to marry him. And there was Grumman and Madame Christmas, who said "Finally" biggrin.gif But then I woke up. T_T

I really hope we'll see Roy and Riza in chapter 98. But until then, we'll have Royai moments in Brotherhood. ^^
amestris_star
OT: I'm back at last! Missed ya all! smile.gif

@Kale: I'm envying you getting the RAH figure like... WHOA.

As for the game screenshots, I'm positively surprise that Roy and Riza are centre-stage. Now I can't wait for more info to arrive smile.gif

Regarding Chapter 97, we should have known... I can't wait for the next chapters myself wink.gif

And... Brotherhood... *grins* Next episode I need you smile.gif
Alzea
Oh, hi amestris_star, it's been a while~!^^

Ah, I wonder about this Brotherhood now...I mean there were so many scenes in the preview and I have no idea how they are going to go on with this without messing up few great moments. I hope that they will just end episode 15 with a cliffhanger - when Barry attacks Riza....Still I'm worried - Lust fight within 4 episodes?!WTH?!
Michiyo-
Welcome back, amestris_star! ^^

I'm curious about the next episode, too. But we'll see it the day after tomorrow, so we don't have to wait too much. The long-awaited Barry-Riza meeting... biggrin.gif

About the Roy VS. Lust fight, I read it in an interview a while ago, that it's one of Arakawa's favourite scenes, so I hope the creators will do an awesome job. But ep. 19 is a bit early for that, so I'm worried, too.
iAmjelly
@everyone - thanks for the welcomes guys!

Anyway, about the anime - is the Roy v. Lust fight really coming that soon? 19's a bit early isn't it? - although I did read somewhere that the new anime's only supposed to have sixty-something episodes. I reckon it's still going pretty fast considering they're doing all the stuff that wasn't shown in the previous anime.

About chapter 97 - I'm so glad Wrath is back! I missed him! I'm a little worried about Wrath v. Greedling though - I don't want either of them to die - they're both way too awesome to die fighting each other.
FMAobsessed
Welcome back amestris_star you came back in time for chapter 97 and the new episode. Good timing.

@RizaXRoy and Alzea thank you for the sympathy about my Royai nightmare. The only thing my brother said was "Wow, you have dreams about drawings." He wasn't very sympathetic.

When the Roy vs. Lust fight comes I will drop everything and not move into the episode is over.
rainbowcatgirl
Hi guys ! i know its been awhile. The screencaps made my day too, I love Riza in purple she looks so pretty ! Roy in a hawaiian shirt was so cute ! I hope those too will be together in the end of the game.

Does anyone know why Roy is in prison?

I can't wait for the story line !!!!!

biggrin.gif
Hagaren_4ever
I don't think any of us know why, and I don't know when more info comes out, but the game comes out August 13 in Japan. You can probably expect the cut scenes and game play on Youtube not too long later.

@everyone: Thanks for the welcome back smile.gif

As for the anime, I'm getting kinda worried at the fact that the Lust vs Roy should be coming up so soon... mmmh... can't really understand what they have in mind now. I'm sort of confused.

Yeah, It'll be just right to sit there and stare at the screen when it'll be streamed online then again with HQ raw and again with some subs and again with Eclipse' subs and again with Polish subs with my friends then few more times just to watch it and when it'll be finally released on DVD I'll watch it again and maybe if FMA:B comes to the Polish TV I'll watch this again xD (no matter how much they are going to cut, this scene is so epic that it'll be hard to destroy it, same goes to chapters 94-95)

Agreed. I never really liked the first anime so I had high hopes for the second anime, seeing how the manga is on-going and all there isn't any need to rush.

At the moment, the manga chapters:FMA-2 episodes ratio is ~2.2. Which means the Roy vs Lust fight will be around episode 17.56. So halfway through episode 17. This is only a rough estimate though, since there are so little episodes to base this on and Bones may decide to add or delete certain parts. :/

Basing on this ratio, it'll take about 44 episodes to get to where we are now in the manga. Since we're on 13, that means 31 more episodes. So 7 more months, if Bones decides to consistently release episodes every week.

Gah, what the heck. I'm only confusing myself.

If they don't, I might be getting a homicidal streak.

As for the Lust vs. Roy event, I hope they explain everything well... too many things happen in just a few chapters. I am hopeful at least.

The Lust vs. Roy fight is so important for the story and everything that I can't see why on earth they would even consider rushing through it...I mean this is the reason they made the anime! To tell the story in the manga! It would be a complete waste not to slow the pacing down. They've gotten through all the overlap, so it's now or never! I suppose that this next ep will let us know whether or not we all will need to buy tickets to Japan and storm Bones' studio laugh.gif

Probably what annoys me more than the pacing is the fact that they've flipped the stories around... reveal the truth about Maria before the Roy v. Lust fight?

Not cool as I liked the whole 'murder mystery' part of the story - which made the reveal all the more awesome.

But, I'll just wait and see... *prays that the telephone scene makes it*

^Argh, don't even tell me. We probably will never understand why they are doing this, rushing everything like crazy and trying to improve something what is already epic good >.< What's annoying me is the fact that they don't really care about these details which make everything so awesome~~

Ah, maybe I should just get over it? I mean it'll be hard to destroy such epic moments like Lust fight or Envy vs Roy&Riza, but I'm worried that they might be able to mess up this pure epicness >.<

So~we just have to wait and see and pray and I should go calm down, maybe it won't be THAT bad (yeah, riiiight~)

They're not doing it to 'improve', they're doing it so that the hole story of the manga will fit in a reasonable number of episodes. They're not made of money, after all. And Bones is not the type of company to make a series that's 150 episodes long, like Naruto and Bleach.

And really don't think discussing over something that hasn't even come out yet is very productive. They might end up doing something completely different from what we think they will. In the end, we're complaining over conjectures.

And, once again: they're probably NOT cutting ANY of the real important Royai scenes since they're not just there to be 'cute and funny', but actually are vital to the understanding of the manga.
The Lust death scene, for example, leads up to Roy complaining to Riza that she cannot give up 'protecting him', which leads directly to the scene of the promise with Havoc, and, later to the promise on the underground, that also has reflexes up to THIS chapter 97!
See?? It's not like the scenes they cut out so far, that had a meaning in and for itself. The Royai scenes lead to a chain that, without it, would make about half the manga meaningless.

And complaining about them 'not being there' makes no sense at all, since it hasn't even come out, yet! The Lust X Mustang scene is in the beginning of the manga, so it's not unreasonable for it to appear in the 17th - 18th episode, if we take the perspective of a 50, 60 episodes anime, which will probably be the size of Brotherhood.


I don't know why people are complaining so much about it, actually. I mean, would people really rather NOT have a new series at all? Or are they expecting an anime that's the exact copy of the manga?
There will always be changes, being them big or small. But I also have confidence that Bones is wise enough to keep on their word into 'following the original plot of the manga', so, even if they change or take out some things, it won't be anything that will compromise the flow of the story. They wouldn't be stupid enough to do it otherwise since they already made a 'public compromise' on that. They're not Gainax.

I like what you say, I do agree that the series can't always follow the manga and the can try and be creative. I was worried but yeah with the new game, the new team will have more of a Royai focus and show it in a enhance scene and do it justice. I'll take your word for it. I already like Shinichiro Miki and Fumiko Orikasa Royai team better than the previous. Not saying that the first team was bad athough I do read somewhere that Riza first voice actress didn't think Riza liked Roy in the first series.
Turdaewen
Well., I wouldn't blame Riza's first VA, since we don't really get to see Roy and Riza REALLY interact and their sort of relationship until chapter 30 foward, which wasn't released by the time they dubbed FMA 1. XD
