Not sure where to post this: it's a little Roy video from the Gangan site (with the cover from the next Tank coming out in August). I figured you guys would especially like this.

Thanks Kirara!! I am drooling at this biggrin.gif Unfortunately, your link doesn't work (at least for me)
DistantBlue
That's got to be my favorite cover yet. If only Hawkeye was looking bad-arse with her gun right behind/next to him *obsessed Royai fan*

I can't wait for a bigger scan of it to come out!!! biggrin.gif Thanks so much Kiara!
jacksparrow589
Kirara--That cover definitely solicited a "Whoooo!" from me. Not a whistle--an honest-to-goodness Whoooo.) Oh, I cannot wait! If Uwajimaya allows returns, I might have to purchase it just to see the cover. Or... what chapters does it cover? I might just have to buy it if it's the most recent stuff. (It is, isn't it?)

About Roy, Riza, and civilian attire: I LOVE seeing the both of them in civvies. The uniform's okay, but only without the jacket. There's something highly attractive about men in button-down shirts, preferrably with the sleeves rolled up. (Not just Roy, mind you, but he's a particularly fine speccimen.) He looks very dashing in suits, too. I'm still sort of warming up to the scarf, but it works. As for Riza, she's got it, she should flaunt it. And flaunt it she does, if inadvertantly. Okay, a product of Arakawa's choice of angles, but still... The skirt with the slit suits her well. I like her hair down, too. Clipped up is okay for work, but I'd kill to have hair that nice.

So, of course, since they both look wonderful, and they look wonderful together, they obviously belong together! (No logic in there whatsoever, but work with me, people!)
DistantBlue
@Kirara - Actually, I looked up on mangafox and it has the last chapter in 22 as Ch. 93. If that's correct (it could very well be wrong), my guess was that vol.23 covers 94-97, so four chapters. biggrin.gif Sorry if I sound nit-picky and annoying, I don't mean to be. XD

Yeah, Envy's probably on the spine....
jacksparrow589
Kirara--Ah, many thanks. I'm DEFINITELY buying it then. I don't particularly care that I can't read Japanese, I'm still buying it. (Not to mention translations exist on this site and elsewhere.) Too much Royai in there to give up, and I'll be waiting for a while for the English version to come out. A bunch of my friends took Japanese. I'll make them read it and convert them to the goodness that is Royai! *evil grin & laugh*

Envy on the spine makes sense, too, since this is where his active involvement in the story ends. Then again, they didn't do that for Lust, but Envy's figured more prominently in the series, so it's definitely possible. I'm surprised more of the homunculi haven't been on the spine.

In a twisted, sort of roundabout way, I now like Envy a little better. If not for him, we wouldn't have one of the most powerful, defining, and heart-wrenching Royai moments on record. Still hate him, but it's a love-to-hate sort of thing, with a little bit of grudging acceptance in there.

EDIT: Ah, crud. Just read DistantBlue's post, and it looks like 92 is in fact the last chapter of 22. HOWEVER, I'll still buy 23 for the reasons stated above, and Roy reuniting with everyone is pretty good, so I may as yet get that one, too. Still, thank you both (Kirara and DistantBlue) for the info!

I own Vol. 22 and the last chapter is definitely 91. smile.gif
Tombow
Thank you Kirara for the link for the vid and the pic!!! It's squee inducing!!! biggrin.gif

And, yes, I concur with Kirara. Volume 22 contains chapter 88, 89, 90, & 91. smile.gif
Reminder that Vol. 19 & Vol 20 contained 5 chapters each, not the usual 4 chapters. ^^

And, upcoming Vol. 23 contains chapters 92, 93, 94, & 95, I guess.. ^^


=============

<Program Note>

@Kirara - I moved one of your posts about the cover of Vol. 23, and opened as "Vol. 23" thread in FMA manga forum. smile.gif
kkg22104
Wow Kirara, thanks for sharing the picture!! biggrin.gif I want that volume really bad now. When is it coming out in Japan?
Kale Mustang
Thanks Kirara for the video link - it was a nice recap of Roy's quest to find Maes' killer.

I was already going to buy vol. 23 when it came out, but now knowing what the cover looks like - cemented the deal. Can't wait.
FMAobsessed
Thank you! thank you! thank you Kirara for that awesome Roy video, and the image of him on the manga volume. That is volume 23 right?

@jacksparrow
Your logic makes perfect sense to me. Roy and Riza look wonderful seperatley, they look wonderful together, they work together perfectly. They should just get married for crying out loud.

I find it odd that FMA has Roy and Riza in civilian clothes that fit the 20's. But Ed and Winry wear clothes that could be found in today's society. Even Al too before he became armor wore outfits I have seen boys wear today.

Roy's scarf does look comfortable. I know how to knit, but I haven't done it in a while. @Kale I thought San Francisco was always sunny? Or is that another part of California that I am thinking of? Anyways it has got to be warmer than Massachusetts. If anyone is from Massachusetts, you know what I mean.

It's usually sunny and warm in California (especially in the Bay Area) but San Francisco can actually get foggy and cold - even during the summer - the upside is that San Francisco's temperature is roughly the same all year long. It also gets windy so a scarf is pretty handy to have.

What Kale says is true-- I live in San Jose, about an hour's drive away from San Fransisco. My family and I go there every ~month. The weather's really unpredictable and since it's so close to the ocean, it can end up 10 to 30 degrees cooler than the cities around San Fran.

And there's a lot of tall buildings there, so 50% of the time you're covered in shade. tongue.gif

Though, being in San Jose, it's horribly sunny and horribly hot and horribly boring. 83 degrees at night at the time of postin'. e__e

I'm currently cooking out here in Dublin, temps roughly the same as it is down there. It'll probably be in the low 70s/high 60s later tonight... -.-
jacksparrow589
*rant*Rawr! I just can't seem to get anything right tonight! Geez Louise! (No offense intended if anyone here is actually a Louise or any variation thereof!) Anyway, curse my inability to understand and/or type things properly! I think I will just give up trying to sort out which volume has which/however many chapters and just find the one I want by some other method. I swear, it should not be this complicated! I JUST WANT VOLUME 23! That's all I ever meant to say!*/rant*

(Really, though, thank you to all who tried to sort it out properly. I'm just angry with myself for getting so easily mixed up.)

Anyway, Kirara, I never did thank you for the link to the video. I didn't actually watch it up until now. I really like it, though. There was one picture in there I didn't recognize, a bit before the half-way point, with Riza, Falman, Havoc, Fuery, and Breda in it and they're all saying something together. It's a few shots before we see Havoc and Roy meeting Lust. What an amazing video. Thanks again for sharing the link! (Am I the only one who was reminded of The Matrix while watching this? It was the music that did it.)

Back to civilian clothing: I don't think that Roy and Riza's style necessarily belongs in the 20's so much as it is 20's-inspired. A lot of the clothing seems pretty modern to me, but then again, I don't have much of a critical eye for fashion. They're still some of the classiest manga characters around, though.

Kale--Where have you been looking for plain white scarves? I can find them everywhere here! (Then again, I do live in Seattle, which isn't exactly the bay area... That may or may not have a bearing on things.) The public markets, the little stores, even Target and other big department stores have them at the right time of year! Try looking in a couple months, maybe, when the stores are getting their winter stocks. That's the best advice you'll get from me!

Side note that has nothing to do with anything else: I've been writing a ton and a half of Royai lately, and am just going to post it in Second Chances one chapter per week, just in case anybody cares. Is it just me who's been feeling the urge to write Royai lately?

I've been thinking about writing some fanfiction but I never had the time -coughtoolazy- to do it.

--------------------

Anyhow, I was glad to see that Riza was wearing such a revealing? skirt. It makes up for part Bones cut out from Roy. Sort of. No. Not really. Bleh. At least we had some form of compensation.

On the topic of clothing, does anyone have a picture of Roy/Riza in civilian clothing? Kind of hard picturing things in my mind if I don't have some form of reference. tongue.gif

Does anyone know exactly how many guns Riza has on her person? o__o I can estimate five, but knowing her she'd probably have more...

Lucky. It'll end up high seventies to low eighties by the time I hit the bed. And my parents hate using the air conditioning.
Kale Mustang
Knowing Riza, she probably has at least five guns... I'd guess she'd at least have one hidden in each boot, one in a rear holster, one hidden on a thigh holster, and one obviously in her purse.

...as for the scarf, don't worry I'll make it happen. Now, finding a vest... *sighs*

I envy you people who are experiencing warm weather this summer. I went to the beach yesterday for the first time this summer. And the water was freezing.

Hey-- I have a question not so related with our ongoing wardrobe topic.... I've noticed in several fanfictions that Riza has a liking for romance novels....? Has anyone else seen this anywhere, and if so, where did it come from? If no one knows, that's okay. I'm just curious.


Yeah, I'm trying to figure this out, too. So since no one replied to this question, I'm just restating- does anyone know? Cuz it has been a little thing that's been bugging me.

Anyways, in regards to fashion, I'll admit I am not a fashion guru, but I know classy and sexy when I see it. Roy in his civvies has always been one of the minor things I appreciated from him (as well as Arakawa, who of course drew it) as a character. Long before I started watching/reading FMA I always appealed to guy who dressed sharp and classy. XD. In regards to Riza, honestly, I really don't have an eye for women's clothing even though I'm a girl. I'm weird like that. But what I can say is that it's nice to have her in something other than the uniform every now and then. -cheesy smile-

You guys complaining about how chilly it is wherever you live should come down here to Texas. Here, it's been over a hundred degrees every day since summer started pretty much. So come on down and sweat to your heart's content! XD

Honestly, I have no clue. I've seen the romance novel thing in a couple of fanfics here and there.

But eh, who knows. All I know is I is that I've never seen any hint of Riza's little fiction appeal cannon-wise.

...So it's possible that some writer wrote it up, and then some other writer came along and read that, thought it would be a neat little thing to add to their story [or get convinced it's canon] and add it to their story. Then we end up with a couple of fanfics thanks to that little antic. It's like the great game of Telephone gone terribly, terribly wrong. 8D Things like this happened before.

So this can only mean... we get Roy in the next chapter. And behind Roy is allways Riza... finally, hahahahahahaha >D

Edit: This video is rly awesome O__ I liked it.
Michiyo-
OMG, that pic is awesome! I was sure that Roy'll be on the cover of vol. 23, since it will contain the fight with Envy.
And that video is really cool, too. Thanks Kirara for the link!

Can't wait to see ch. 94-95 animated! But it's still a long time.

I'm guessing it COULD be from one of those drama CD's (??) that have been released. Uploaded the track here (Riza starts talking what is below at 2:54)

Riza : Of course. I'm a romanticist. Is there something?
Roy : No, not really....

I own Vol. 22 and the last chapter is definitely 91. smile.gif



QUOTE (Tombow @ Jul 14 2009, 07:34 PM) *
^ I concur with Kirara. Volume 22 contains chapter 88, 89, 90, & 91. smile.gif
Reminder that Vol. 19 & Vol 20 contained 5 chapters each, not the usual 4 chapters. ^^


Whoops! Just another reason why no one should take my word for it. XD Sorry about that!

Anyway, I never saw this part when watching the video, but I was kinda expecting it, so....yay! XD Thanks to whoever posted it. smile.gif

So this can only mean... we get Roy in the next chapter. And behind Roy is allways Riza... finally, hahahahahahaha >D


I'm confused - why does that mean we get a Roy/Riza chapter? They could very well be in it, but my thinking was that a majority of the chapter would be focused on Bradley v. Greedling, after reading Tombow's translated post of the preview of next month's Shounen Gangan.

I'm guessing it COULD be from one of those drama CD's (??) that have been released. Uploaded the track here (Riza starts talking what is below at 2:54)

Riza : Rainbow....perhaps it is the crown of the sky, heralding the new age...

Roy : (tentatively) First Lieutenant...do you read that kind of stuff?
Riza : Of course. I'm a romanticist. Is there something?

That was the longest dramatic silence of all time. I had to check if my comp froze. xD Ed's laugh is so awkward it's like "Aha.... hahaha... hah... haha... you're a psycho... hah." But I think I remember this. It used to be on my comp, I didnt understand a word so I deleted all the tracks. D:

They made fun of her for being a romanticist ):

I miss Riza's old voooiiiiiicccccccceeeeeeeeeeee.

Not sure where to post this: it's a little Roy video from the Gangan site (with the cover from the next Tank coming out in August). I figured you guys would especially like this.

THIS!
Some things are just made of awesomeness~ (and it happens that most of these things are FMA-related xD)
Anyway, I love this cover and vid, thank you, Kirara for bringing it~!

I didn't know that FMA had a drama CD. And what exactly is a drama CD? I know other animes have them. But what is the purpose of them?

A drama CD is exactly what it sounds like: it's a radio play (one of the most famous was 'War of the Worlds') that is performed by the voice actors and instead of listening to the performances over the radio (I think some of them are still performed over the radio before they're put on a CD), you listen to in on a CD. The purpose of the drama CDs is usually to tell little side-stories - like the gaidens in the manga.
Hey
Drama CDs are like animes except there's like no animation, just voices and music and sfx.

Purpose...there really isn't any, but drama CD stories tend to be non-canon side story stuff. I think FMA's drama CDs are more serious stories from the titles (I think, of the drama CDs I've only heard like only like half of Tenjou no Houkan and Youtube deleted them and I'm lazy to refind it since...) but some anime drama CDs are made of gag stuff.

But man, FMA has a lot of Drama CDs. I can't find them online (lazy) and I'm unsure where to buy them (especially those that come with Shounen Gangan)...
Tombow
@Maliza - Thank you posting that!! Nice find!! biggrin.gif

Adding to everyone's nice info on FMA drama CDs.....

* Some of the reported FMA Drama CD titles that have been out.... though I don't quite understand some of them XDD

Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD Itsuwari no Hikari Shinjitsu no Kage
Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD Ogtare of the Mist Part 1
Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD Ogtare of the Mist Part 2
Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD Sareki no Daichi
Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD The Crown Jewel of Heaven Part 1
Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD The Crown Jewel of Heaven Part 2
Fullmetal Alchemist Drama CD The Scars of the Unforgiven

And, yes, Roya and Riza are in them. I think there was a "comic collection" drama CD, and I remember translating the part that had Roy and Riza, and posted the translation somewhere on this thread. Though, of course I don't remember where. tongue.gif

I know you can buy ones in Japanese from Amazon and other places, but for the ones comes as a bonus gift for GanGan mag, I guess you have to buy the mag that month..

Finally seen it.
And it killed me. Of the awesomeness. Music was just perfect, and it's really very well made *grins* I love that man.

Thanks Kirara for posting it so much!

Huh...That makes sense. Really funny track! (even though I can't really understand it...) I loved the long, dramatic pause especially. I can just imagine them all looking at her and thinking: "....what?" biggrin.gif

So I'm guessing it's either this, or it's what someone called a "telephone game gone horribly wrong." That made me laugh!

The effect is almost like:

Everyone: NO WAI?! HAWKEYE'S A GIRL?! ...I thought Hawkeye was like a guy - but with boobs...?

I actually thought Hawkeye WAS a guy when I first read the manga. It was only Ch. 48 when I realized she was a girl. Boy was I in shock. XD

....I hadn't even noticed her boobs before, LAWL.

http://media.onemanga.com/mangas/00000010/00000048/04.jpg <--- When I first started thinking MAYBE she wasn't a guy

...Wow... that's...wow. Well, at least you know better now. laugh.gif

I mean this: http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/30/45/ was pretty much a dead giveaway to me.

Oh, wow, this whole thing about not knowing that Riza is a woman... priceless! I was actually laughing aloud. Now my mom thinks I've gone crazy.

Leafspire--Kudos to you for noticing the smiliarity in those pictures! That really hit me when you included that link. They're so in synch with each other that even in battle they have the same little habit! *stops to marvel at the beauty of it all*

These drama CDs are giving me something else to think about the next time I go to Uwajimaya. Riza admitting that she's a romantic... It actually works. That little exchange just made me laugh. Roy must be very confused now.

Now I've got "Ame No Hi Wa No Thank You" stuck in my head. I would say it's annoying, but it's pretty catchy at the same time... and it's Royai.
The_Twilight_Trinity
@DistantBlue--Huh. Wow. I suppose I knew because I saw the first anime before I read the manga so I can't exactly judge.... But I thought at least with the hair and the boobs.... And also Barry the Chopper like Kale pointed out. Well, what's important is that you know now. I bet that that that was one heck of a revelation for you!

@DistantBlue: Hahaha. A guy with hairclip. Now that you have mentioned, I rarely see any guy with long hair uses a hair clip.

I have no problem recognize Riza as a 'she'. Maybe it's because I watched the anime first. When I first saw Riza, I wonder what's her name. Then, every once a while, I heard Mustang and co. mention Lieutenant Hawkeye. At first, I thought it was someone else, possibly a guy. It impressed me so much that a woman at that time would rise in the military. I don't know. But besides Olivia, I think she had climbed quite high in rank. I remember Rebecca teased Riza what she did to rise so fast in the military (when she had been appointed as Bradley's secreatary). Oh! She's my idol! Even with the fact that I'm not interested in joining the army, she had inspired me a lot.

^ Well, I can understand why people would initially want women on the front lines, because let's face it. Women are generally weaker than men. But that only made sense back in the days where there was actually a lot of hand-to-hand combat involved in war. Now that we have sniper guns that have better aim than ever, it's actually good to have a few women on the front lines because they naturally have better peripheral vision and aim.

Now to make this post on-topic, I was actually curious as to where Roy and Riza are right now in the manga chapters. They had great moments before, and they just kinda disappeared. I haven't seen them since Envy died, where are they?
FMAobsessed
@Hagaren_4ever Don't worry you haven't missed anything with Roy and Riza. Chapter 95 has been their latest appearance in the manga. So here to chapter 98, let's hope Roy and Riza make a little appearance.

Thanks to all that answered my Drama CD question. Much appreciated! smile.gif
