SPOILERS for the game play ahead... if you're planning to buy this game and play it, then don't read the following. tongue.gif

Yeah, in fact the game story seems to be that way, that Mustang is framed for the attempt assassination of the Prince (this is indeed the part of the game story...we know that much,) and as unoriginal as this might be, it might indeed be that the "claimed" motive of Mustang, in this game story-line, is that Prince is interested in Hawkeye, and Mustang is claimed to have become jealous of that and attempted to assassinate Prince, or something along that line... And then, according to the scanned magazine article, Riza testifies in the military court, telling the sequesnce of the events or something, and the military is claiming that shows that Mustang has attempted to assassinate Prince, and Ed (and the game player) has to figure out what is wrong in that logic and hence disprove it and therefore prove Mustang's innocence and free Roy.. and hence complete the part No 3 of the game. biggrin.gif

YAY!!! happy.gif Finally... Royai is finally getting more and more canon wub.gif ..... I just hope they really don't kill the Riza/Gluttony fight on brotherhood.... that would really suck... ukk.. dry.gif
kkg22104
Thanks for the translation Tombow. Seems like Mustang has some competition XD
amestris_star
And yay for Royai getting canon time in the games too... if they keep all the Royai scene in the anime I'd be even more happy at this stage...

Thanks for the info Tombow wink.gif
Alzea
Thanks Tombow for the translation~~!

Say yaaay for Royai being canon in game! Can't wait till vids on youtube will start to pop up xD Too bad that Brotherhood's people don't think about Royai as a canon pairing, I mean honestly, they cut jealous!Roy and most parts from Barry scene T^T I'm in despair~!
Causmicfire
*goes to sulk*

Really now They went ahead and skipped the part of the re-introduction of Barry we were all fearing they'd skip over.

Though, Hayate is there, and it seems we've got more bits of Roy & Riza in the new opening than the last one.

SneakyRuler
Don't despair, there's no way the whole series could do without any Royai in it. But I'm pretty sad how they robbed Barry of the time he deserved He's one of my favourite "monsters" in the manga. Can't wait to see the new OP!

You're not the only one a bit sad about this don't worry... now the next episodes are crucial for the Royai fandom and for the whole FMA plot itself. Hopefully they don't screw up anything...

Tombow you made my day with that traslation.
black~hayate
about the new episode: It makes me, a Royai fan, pretty unpleased... I mean... WTF???????
If they hurry too much, they will ruin the whole anime!!!
At least there was a growling Hayate in the episode -.-"

As for the game:
Wow... too bad I don't own a Wii...
Hooray, canon Royai! =D

Oh god, Wii = Win biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I can't wait to see the videos online!! I don't have a wii, and even with one, I wouldn't buy a game that's in japanese. Beside, I'm only interested in the storyline, not the gameplay! I also can't wait to see Riza's reaction to when she learns that Roy is framed. In fact, I just can't wait, that's all biggrin.gif
Thank you so much Tombow for this summary, you made my day biggrin.gif

Oh god, This = Fail D: D: D:

I didn't see the episode yet, but I'm kind of scared now to look at it, with what you just said. I'm afraid I will be too disappointed...

Anyway, talking about the new opening, anyone realised how the part with Roy-Tachi really looks like the Volume 9 cover? Coincidence? I don't think so!

Yes, someone noticed that too! It was my reaction exactly! And I think there are other scenes in the OP that relate to volume covers in actual fact.
Turdaewen
Yeah... I noticed that as well... I remembered Arakawa talking about it immediately. People supposedly loved that cover in Japan.

And I'm pretty upset they cut that scene, too. sad.gif It's such a funny scene. At least they kept the whole 'Barry in love with Riza' idea.

@tombow: according to your translation, the game plot sounds so much like some kind of fanfiction. Royai just need some oil to make it blaze. and the prince happened to be the oil. HAH!
Michiyo-
Thanks for the translation Tombow! I can't wait to see more videos and screenshots from the game! The story is definitely interesting. biggrin.gif

About ep. 15: why did they cut jealous Roy and why did they shorten the Barry scenes? T_T I really wanted to see more. I loved that parts in the manga and it would have been so amazing to see those animated.

I hope Bones won't screw up more Royai scenes in the upcoming episodes. Some of them are really important to the storyline, so they shouldn't be left out.
I'm waiting for ep. 19 to see my favourite parts of the manga animated, and hopefully the ep. will satisfy us, Royai fans.

Lol exactly what I was thinking! It reminded me of fanfiction immediately.. the best part though - it's NOT! It's actually going to happen! It sounded cliche at first, and I was a bit skeptical, but hey. I'm all for cute Royai storylines! I think it'll stay within their characters. We haven't seen anything out of the ordinary yet.

Agggh. I'm leaving today for Maine, so I'm going to miss out on A LOT of discussion over the next week! (No computer for me...) I'll have to mark this page so I know where to start when I come back! sleep.gif that'll be fun. Bye guys! I'll hope for some good Royai news when I come back!
RizaXRoy
Unexpectedly, they cut Riza-made-call-to-Roy-and Roy-is-jealous-Scene. And also with the link by Gimpyhair stating that Riza is not going to the lab with Roy even though not sure whether this is a reliable source. Now I think I can figure it out a little why they cut some Royai moments.
PROBABLY :
1) This is 'shounen manga' and not 'shounen+romance manga', so they reconsider about this issue and finally decided to cut 'Royai romance + their subtle relationships'
2) They are scared of Royai popularity is higher than the main characters- Ed and Al. But still, I don't think Royai is popular than Ed so this might not the be the reason to cut...
3) No reason.

Indeed, I'm a bit frustrated about FMA:B so let me rant a bit. tongue.gif
How about think this way, we can't change the fact that all the Royai moments are in the manga, so just let it be...
Let's just concentrate on Wii FMA Game tongue.gif got Royai stuffs there! Thanks for the translation, Tombow!! biggrin.gif
Yeah! Spectator, I'm agree with you!! biggrin.gif I love that Prince now because he blazes Royai love!! laugh.gif I just can dream of having such storyline as I never thought this would happen. But now seems quite exactly the same thing that I have thought~. *Dreams come true- Dancing*

Edit: hand-made-city, I'm skeptical about that at the first place too, hehe!! BTW, We'll miss you and have a nice trip!!
amestris_star
I wouldn't worry much about the anime... I mean, it's a way they're adapting the manga at last so... I could have happened after all (them leaving out the Royai scenes). Now what I sincerely hope is that those essential to the plot are left in, i.e. Lust vs. Roy basically. Riza has to be there.

And anyway, our "bible" is the manga, not Bones work wink.gif So sit back, watch the show and enjoy the experience of seeing significant manga panels being animated (I never thought this would have happened, ever... so...). The only thing is that... the more Royai, the better smile.gif

And that game plot is effin awesome! >D
AndroidLust
I need to stop anticipating the Brotherhood episodes so much because so far I`ve been dissapointed. I guess I should be content with just the fact that the manga is being animated, but it seems like a cruel joke. It`s like: We`re gonna animate your favorite manga, butttttttttttttttttt we`re gonna cut out your favorite scenes. Not cool.
Hopefully things will turn around. If they`re alluding to Royai in the game (yay!) then I don`t see why they would cut out the hinting scenes in the anime (except for maybe time issues and if they hold no real importance to the storyline.). And even so, to eliminate stuff like that is to limit the viewer`s insight to the characters, which is terrible because Arakawa worked hard to create intricate, multi-dimensional characters and it would be a shame to see that wasted.

And then there`s the game. I want it sooo bad, I feel like an impatient brat. tongue.gif Hopefully, the language barrier won`t hinder my ability to progress through the game. Also, I want all those FMA goodies people posted a few pages ago, especially the phone stickers. Too bad the recession is hitting me hard. ;_;

First, I should mentionned that the link I provided was a short summary preview. It's not confirmed that Riza is not going to the lab with Roy. But it's not confirmed that she is going to be there either.

Second, it's not juste Royai moments that's being cut: in general, details not that important to the plot are being cut. Why? Like many other, I think that they want to finish the anime under X number of episodes. I can't see why though.

LOL! Reminds me of the first time I watched the Harry Potter movies! Now I'm trying to just seperate the books from the movies.

In the first anime series, I notice that only Riza being jealous everytime Roy is associate with some girls.

Now that we have a chance to see jealous Roy. I want to see it so badly. laugh.gif Long live Royai!

By the way, doesn't Bones scare of Royai fans boycott FMA:B and turn to Wii instead if they keep on stiffling Royai progression??

Oh boy, this reminds me of the movie again. Darn! I hate that movie!

THIS! I'm sure they are laughing at us now! Ha! I'm sure that behind this are RoyEd fangirls just as it was with the movie~! xP (no offense to any RoyEd fangirls, it's just my rambling and trying to lighten things up by making lame jokes besides my friend -RoyEd fangirl- told me this today - that she and other RoyEd fangirls were plotting this from the very beginning xP)

Argh, I should just get over it but darn, I simply can't... -.-
HannahBlack09
I was so disappointed to see that they cut it : (.. When I first read that they were doing a second anime that part was one of parts which I was reaaally looking foward seeing. sad.gif

But aaanywaay.. At least the scene is in the manga, and that is the one that matters tongue.gif (trying to be optimistic mellow.gif ) Hopefully we'll get rewarded with lots of Royai in the animation of Roy vs Lust and some of the chap. 95
Kale Mustang
Despite it being cut, I still liked that they kept most of the Barry/Riza interaction (seeing Hayate was awesome!).

Either way, I'm still enjoying the show and will continue to just go along for the ride - as it's still good no matter what.
Turdaewen
Yeah... I wanted to see it, but I don't mind it either. And I still think it's one of the best animes EVER XD lol

And I still think they're doing a great job. XD
RoyxRizaFan
*cries*

Why, BONES, why??!! Don't you know that almost every FMA fan ships, or at least supports, RoyAi? (usually the only ones who don't are from the first anime, and hell, I don't blame them...)

And what's this about her not going to the lab with him...? Tell me HOW that can be cut and not affect the story. This is where she finds out about homonculi, where Wrath sees how Roy wants to protect her and Al, how we see her loyalty towards him, and how she writes that map later and everything. I know this isn't confirmed, but the thought is just 0_0

DistantBlue
At first, I was pissed after hearing about this scene along with the others getting cut, but I have a feeling BONES is doing this on purpose.

I bet BONES is waiting for the call scene to reveal Royai.

My thinking is that they want it to be a big impact on new fans who weren't given much more than that they were close. If new fans were previously unaware the hints throughout the series, and then suddenly in 18/19 the call scene or the Lust incident crops up and they are left surprised and wanting more.

And if my theory is correct about episode 18 and 19, then that would make sense.

They obviously don't hate Royai - just look at the new game! XD (well, I don't know if BONES has anything to do with the game, but...)
Turdaewen
Actually, I just realized something:
If the call scene is cut out, how the hell will people know Riza's codename is Elizabeth?? I mean, the whole "Why don't you go play with Elizabeth" will make no sense at ALL. O.o
RoyxRizaFan
Oh, the call scene is being cut? I thought someone said that Riza was being cut from the lab scene...

Both suggestions are terrible ohmy.gif They can't do this!!!!!

I mean, Riza and Roy's relationship isn't something that is only girly girly romance. It does comen into the actual play of the shounen manga. Roy wouldn't be who he is, or do what he does if it weren't for her, and if we don't see that relationship, then...ah, well.

This isn't about Barry anymore, it's about the idea of them cutting more, b/c obviously that scene hasn't upset me to this extent. I just hope they don't cut anything else. Shorten the scene, just don't cut it all together!

Oh well. I need to be more optimistic tongue.gif

You guys are really concerned! XD
I didn't say the call scene would be cut. We have no idea whether it will be in or out. XD I just said that IF they cut it, it would make complicated for them to explain Riza's codename...

There's no real fact to confirm neither the call or the lab scene to be cut out, so you can relax, for now.
The only way we'll know what they'll do is to wait and see the episodes.
RoyxRizaFan
I can't relax when my RoyAi is at stake

XD jk, I'll be fine. Just the thought makes me go 0___0

But yeah, the call scene is the next one we have to look forward to, right? Or maybe we shouldn't look forward to it...either way, at least the game sounds good (even if I can't play it, it's nice to hear about!)

Hi I wish to join this lovely (kickass) pairing that is RoyAi.

Also, I wanted to post this link hereand see if this is true as well. The moment I read this I got really excited because it not only confirms the possibility of a RoyAi fanservice, but because since the author of the manga is involved, it adds a bit more canon-ness not only game-wise but also manga-wise as well. I mean what could be better than moments approved by the "goddess"of fma universe herself? smile.gif
jacksparrow589
zagu--Hello and welcome! Glad you want to join us!

To those who shared pictures/info on the game: I love you all. The pictures were awesome, and the game? Oh dear... well, I'll have to take a look at it. I saw some of the cutscenes on YouTube, but nothing amazingly Royai-ish. Looks like it'll be fun, though.

Awww... I need to see 15 now! What's this about cuts of... Nooo! Not possible! I just hope that they don't keep Riza out of the lab. If they do... blowup.gif crybaby.gif
zagu
*sheepish* Ah, thank you jacksparrow589! I've read some of your posts and I couldn't help but feel smug to have you as a fellow supporter of this pairing (as well as the rest of you guys). Thank you everyone who shared links of infos and pics of this beautiful pairing!


Anyway, so I won't feel like spamming, I want to share my opinion regarding this week's (?) episode.

I haven't watched it yet, but reading some of the post's from those who already did, I initially reacted with sadness (and slight irk). I won't say I'm optimistic in regards to the following episodes but I will pray that Bones had good intentions for their actions (good intentions = for RoyAi fans, and for Roy and Riza as well).


Wii game: Yes, the plot seem very cliche, but then again why is this used so much? It's because it's been proven effective to attract audiences/consumers that's why...and I guess it's proven it once again because I am so hooked and anxious to see this game! I'm not sure if they'll release it in my country but I hope someone will be able to post the goodies here soon!:D I'll be eternally grateful!

RizaXRoy
@zagu: Hello!! Welcome to Royai thread!! just stick around here more often!! And Yes, let's pray!! biggrin.gif

I copied the part of when Ed talks to Riza and Roy in Wii FMA game, you can watch the vid posted by JELLE in FMA Wii Game thread

Ed: そういや、中尉はなでいるんだ?大総統のお守りはしなくていいのか?
Riza: 大総統閣下からの勅令を手渡しで配ってるのよ。

Looks like Roy and Riza ‘argue’ over the laziness at work

Actually, I just realized something:
If the call scene is cut out, how the hell will people know Riza's codename is Elizabeth?? I mean, the whole "Why don't you go play with Elizabeth" will make no sense at ALL. O.o

IF really cut the call scene, probably they will just skip the 'why don't you go play with Elizabeth' part just like they cut the 'marrying my granddaughter' part. Of course, hope it's not like this... dry.gif

Oh, thanks RizaxRoy! Hehe, yes and thank you for posting that conversation piece here! I wish I knew what they're talking about exactly....although it doesn't need much interpreting that Riza's winning this 'debate'! I love it when Riza's seemingly wearing the pants here...wink.gif

Welcome zagu and I'd probably say that 85% of the time Riza's in control, 10% Roy let's Riza take control and... 5% of the time, Roy's in control.

Hah, inspite of this I "aww"- ed at the fact how Roy's such a gentleman! He could've hogged the remaining 15% but decided to give away the 10. wink.gif



And thank you to Kale Mustang and amestris_star for the welcome! smile.gif


But anyway...while Bones are probably having a blast mind-boggling us fans in regards to RoyAi moments, I wonder if anyone could guess if, when or what they will suddenly blow us with a RoyAi moment. Just for fun perhaps?


As far as I am concerned it's such a pity that they didn't animate those scenes (would've made some good AMV huh), but I still have faith they'll compensate this with a kick-[All hail lord Xenu] RoyAi moment (SOON!!!).


I'm thinking they'll start with the conversation between Roy and "Elizabeth". Episode 17. Yeah, some may not be so optimistic about this but I WON'T. biggrin.gif

I bet my whole month of internet time on this biggrin.gif

I really dont think that they will cut the call.. without the call, Roy wouldn't get in the battle.. and without that scene they wouldnt have gone to the underground world where the hommunculi are .. and well that scene is crucial .. they cant just cut it.

Lets have faith in Bones! Maybe they are looking for a better way to introduce Royai tongue.gif

I've been taking the wait-and-see approach with each episode. I figure if I try to watch every episode with no expectations, any surprises that happen (or don't happen) won't disappoint me.

Now if I could just let the things that annoy me slide...

I'm afraid that when the Lust vs Roy scenes come and Riza breaks down people who dont read the manga will think "Why the hell is she so upset? They dont even talk to each other..." if the scene comes at all. It'll seem so sudden as hardly any scenes of them together are being shown...

It'll all make sense to us as we've read the scene all those months ago... but still. What.

I wouldn't panic. There's no reason to believe that Bones would cut Riza out of Lust vs. Roy confrontation. I f you look at their actions this far, they rush through things but they don't shorten the amount of people. Yes, the Barry confontations were shortened, but even if there's no explanation they kept Falman there, even when he doesn't say a thing to Barry. They could've got him out of that scene and they didn't. So why not include Riza in chasing after Barry? They showed us how awsome she is with guns (she even managed to shoot Scar's glasses off!) and how well she can handle Barry and how she's always with here Colonel and suddenly she doesn't go with him? I don't think so...

(It just occured to me if they did cut her completely who would be on her place in the call scene. Havoc? "Hello, Jaqueline, sweetheart, I missed you. I'm soooo glad the Lieutenant's not here so I can call you." - hilarious, if not Royai laugh.gif )

Agreed with SneakyRuler...I'm slightly disappointed that they skipped some Royai stuff, but you have to remember that the show isn't centered around Royai. Bones is doing a pretty good job, IMO, of faithfully animating the manga. Sure, it's not completely panel by panel, but that would be boring anyway. If they skip things, it's only because it's not necessary for the plot. That being said, I wouldn't worry too much about the call scene because that's how Roy gets to the fight.

I second you on that XD

But I think that, if they were to take out the call scene, they would take out the whole sequence out and make it anew as to how they get to the 'underground'.(just like they did with the Island scenes)
It would be the smartest thing to do in that situation, if they REALLY had to change it , but it's still very unlikely, since it's a very good sequence that involve not only the 'call' and Mustang-tachi, but also Al e the first actual FIGHT with the homunculus, as well as the Xing people and the thing about them sensing the homunculus. There're too many important things in this sequence for them to think about cutting it (unlike the whole island sequence, which is VERY big, with one bottom line and that already appeared in the 1st anime)
Hey
I *roughly* translated the part RizaXRoy posted here:

Ed: Oh yeah, why are you here, Lieutenant? Is it okay if you're not looking after (?) the Fuhrer?
Riza: His Excellency the Fuhrer has issued an edict of a handover (?).
I'm mailing it, since there's someone here who's a shirker.
Roy: I wonder who that is about, Lieutenant.
Riza: I think you know very well, Colonel.
Roy: ......
Inner mind of Ed
(Lieutenant, she became the Fuhrer's aide)
(It's a sudden change, but she's able to cope well with her work, that's a great person for you (?))


(?) means I'm not too sure about those parts..I mean, so many words I've never seen before :P Yeah I suck. :)
RizaXRoy
@zagu: You're welcome!! Yeah~ it's nice if they suddenly blow us with epic Royai moments..but the chances just.... ohmy.gif

I'm agreed with you here.
On the other hand, I realized that they love to cut Royai subtle scenes. Ok, I think Riza will be there in chasing after the Barry and the call scene will be shown but probably Riza won't cry at the end as they don't want to show their subtle relationship. I hope all of this is not true!!

@Hey: Thanks for the translations!! You're good enough at translating!! biggrin.gif BTW, I still got lot of FMA Dream Carnival Royai conversations, do mind to translate too? tongue.gif I gave 1 long conversation to Tombow before so I feel embarrassed if I ask him to translate others!!
