About the queen thing:
Sure, she's the strongest piece on the field. Sure he thinks strategic, not like we espect something else >D
But... uuuh... strongest piece... it's not like Riza can kill some homu's all alone. Or do something more powerful (at least that's how it looks like for now, since she's not an alchemist and bullets ain't allmighty).
It's just like he needs his queen, needs her to be there >D.
Besides. King and queen are a pair >D. He could say "They took away the queen" or something like that.
That scene also screems Royai to me! *screeeaaam*
We will see if it's gotta be animated.

About the episode Royai:
I need to get that picture with Roy (where he's all shocked) and do something with it...
EDIT:
Here is my tasteless humour!

Yeah, the chess scene is soo Royai! Can't wait to see it animated! ^^

Can anyone suggest a really good Royai fanfic to read??? I'm not really a fan of the pairing, mostly because I don't see a lot chemistry, or maybe because their lives are so fully involved with the military, that I can't see a whole lot happening between the two. Yes, I am a fan of the unpopular pairing of WinRoy, and I've read some really great fics about this pairing. However, since Royai has SOOOO many fics, I would rather you guys suggest a few that are actually worth reading. Maybe I can finally be a fan of this pairing too.

Other pairings I like : EdWin and LinFan

Thanks! biggrin.gif
Aribelle
If you click the fanfiction link in my sig and look through my favorites you can see which ones I've liked...there really are a lot out there though lol. I haven't really had time to properly look through them all ^^;

This one is probably my favorite though \o/
hand-made-city
Haha you say that you don't see a connection/chemistry between Roy and Riza, but somehow there is one between Roy and Winry? Not meaning to put down your favorite pairing or anything, but I find it kind of odd! Anyway, a friend has been writing Royai themes, and I think they're really good, so give this a read if you want! http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5058742/1/Black_and_Blond
And of course.. this one had me crying: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3319966/1/Apotheosis

Well to be very specific, I didn't like Royai very much in the first series. I didn't see much there. The manga and Brotherhood are quite different though, and I feel like the manga shows Riza in a more personal light (which is a very good thing). It was like the first anime only showed her as a tough sniper, rarely did you get to see any vulnerability. Thats why the manga works for this pairing.

As for Roy / Winry, I loved the pairing after CoS to be perfectly honest. I know most don't get it, but there are a lot of fans of my fav pairing. Of course WinRoy does not work in the manga, that is pretty obvious. In the manga Winry and Ed have a much better dynamic. tongue.gif

However, I am happy to see these suggestions for Royai fics, I can't think of a better place to ask! There are just so many, and I want to weed out the best ones. I have no time to waste on the crappy ones.

I can see how people would like Roy/Winry from the first anime...it never did anything for me, but it's angsty as all get out and I am a huge, HUGE sucker for angst, so I definitely get the attraction, post CoS (which I always think of as Chamber of Secrets XD) anyway.

And Royai really wasn't as blatant in the first series...they really didn't do much to develop that relationship or Riza's character. It really is way different in the manga.

But all the Royai fanfiction out there does seem a bit daunting if you don't really know where to start (and even if you do XD)...you can probably find lots of good ones if you look through the communities too though biggrin.gif
hand-made-city
Ohhh I see. Yes, when you base it off the first anime, it makes sense why you didn't see much chemistry. DX Apparently I did though, because it's how I first became a Royai fan... I just knew there was something more, so I read the manga!
Turdaewen
I didn't like Royai in the first anime, either.
Roy didn't appeal to me at all and Riza.. well, we kinda don't know anything about her, there ^^

so, I don't blame you for not seeing the chemistry, cause it isn't there, practically. But, in the manga and brotherhood, in the other hand... well, that's a different story, and, if you want to get started in Royai, that's where you should start.

That's exactly what happened to me, too! I loved the idea of Royai in the first anime, but there wasn't nearly enough of it so I ended up going straight to the manga to see if there was more behind them as a couple. But even though I expected that there might be more Royai, I didn't expect to find nearly as much Royai as I did. By the time I got to chapter 39, I had almost completely forgotten about the first anime series, and had converted completely into a manga geek. My friends can hardly stand to watch the first series with me anymore because I'll go off on: "That's totally not what a homunculus is...." "HUGHES WAS TOTALLY IN ISHVAL!" "God, there is SOOO much more Royai in the manga...." "Why can't Winry be tolerable like she is in the manga version?" etc.
Aribelle
I was the opposite way; I read the manga and had no intention of watching the anime, but my friend convinced me to give it a try and I did...and meh lol.

I almost always start off with the anime first, because it's usually more accessible for me, and I love animation! But it usually leads me down the path of the manga sooner or later. But since I do discover series through the anime, I always give them credit for sparking an interest in the first place!

Now that I look back on it, I don't know which episode it was that started my Roy/Riza fangirling... all I remember is that by episode 37 when I heard Riza in the bedroom (and flipped out accordingly) I automatically thought she was with Roy. So it must have started sometime before then... XD

I think that I didn't even realize Royai until my friend said that they'd be a good couple. At the time, I just agreed with her, but after that I started thinking about it more and quickly became a huge fan (which is funny, because I'm such a rabid fan and she never passed the "wouldn't that be cute?" phase). I know that she must have said it before Hughes died because we always said that we'd hate it if Hughes died, and that Mustang and Hawkeye could die as long as they hooked up first. Ironically, Hughes did die and Roy and Riza never hooked up but lived.... Funny how those things work out.

Oh.... I loved that episode! I know that I was already a Royai fangirl by the time I saw that episode, but I remember thinking the exact same thing. But alas, it was only Hayate....
Illuminating-Darkness
Ep. 37...
It was one of the funniest times of watching anime I'd ever had... XD
Me and my friend were like staring a each other going WTH IS GOING ON???
I've been a Royai fan since I picked up FMA XD
zonkiethegreat
Ah yes Ep. 37. That was kind of a fun filler episode! I totally loved Havoc in that episode! His blank spaced out stare, with the cigarette in his mouth and the quirky sound effect everytime the camera shot him. I always laugh, I think he was the star of that episode! And Roy's facial expressions were priceless!

Hayate screwed around with everyone in that ep too! (The bone in the dirt and licking Riza's feet)

Causmicfire
I saw bits and pieces of the anime first, cartoon network was being a pain changing timeslots and lineups around like it the only joy they got out of life was messing with their viewers when I started watching the anime, I got fed up with the shenanigans and them not showing the episodes in order and decided to look into the manga, which is how I found out I could watch it online...but by the time I saw the series all the way through I was already caught up with the manga, lurking here and there. I think I was a RoyAi fan from the moment she kicked his legs out underneath him XD

@zonkiethegreat - Definitely pimping my fanfiction to you, there's a link to my ff profile in my sig, my best work probably being my most current collection of the RoyAi 100, Back to Back.


runs off to finish adaptation of chapter 21

I'm super excited to start adapting chapter 24, and the "someone I need to protect" moment XD
Turdaewen
I only fell in love with Royai in the manga. I thought they were ok on FMA 1 and I was like "aww, that's cute" at the end of the anime (before CoS).

But I don't know... I didn't like Roy all that much in FMA 1. He wasn't that charismatic to me. I liked Al better XD, but along came the manga... and a new world open up in front of me XD
I just connect too much with the idea of a character like Roy the way he's in the manga, cause I love the idea of idealistic leaders and all the obstacles and disappointments along the path...
FMAobsessed
I am a sucker for those professional workplace type relationships. And Roy and Riza seemed like one of those to me at first. But at the same time it was different from the rest. I fell in love with their relationship very quickly. I started to read the manga first before I saw the first anime series. I began to ship them after Riza knocked Roy down in his fight against Scar. She then said the infamous line "You're useless" to him.

After that I began to theorize that they had a history together or something because Roy didn't say anything like "I am you're superior. Don't call me useless." Instead he looked in shock. And I thought it was interesting that Havoc and everyone else just acted like Riza calls Roy useless all the time. That to me made it seem like they had bickered before like a married couple.

Then I saw the first anime series and still liked them as a couple. Enjoyed the few moments we had. Then I saw CoS and yelled at my TV that they had no dialogue and acted like they didn't even know each other.

Now I am reading the manga where it is full of Royai goodness. And Brotherhood seems promising too for it. They better include all the moments because they have plenty now.

So in conclusion I have been really obsessed with Royai for awhile. And Arakawa better deliver an amazing conclusion to the Royai relationship and FMA too.

i do read romance,but i cant stand a lot of cheesy lines..and i like relationship that's kinda of subtle and unspoken.
i read the manga first,and it suddenly dawn upon me that they both have a relationship/bond between them ,it wasnt writen explicitly,nor shown directly ,but i do feel something not like the only superior-subordinate relationship..i think it's a gradual realisation.i dont quite like roy at first,and when i start to like him,roy apparently kills ross ,i start to hate him alot until at the time he saves riza vs gluttony part,and my hate level start to drop,till the part where ed's at xerxes-->i think i really like royai at that time

for anime,i like the parts anyway,although not exactly the feelings in here,but i havent finish it yet so....but yeah,i prefer him in manga where he's a fine strategist.


for useless part i think roy suffer the most when hearing riza calls him useless,more than anyone else.smile.gif
angelstar2408
I started watching the first season last year because my English teacher encouraged me to.... I don't even remember when I started being a Royai Fan.

Then this May I saw in animax the Brotherhood trailer I researched and found out that Brotherhood is going to follow the manga series so I decided to marathon the whole manga series... (Personally I like the manga more...)

Umm I think i started to like the Royai in the episodie 16 of the first anime when Riza is saying maybe you need a punishment or something like that.. her first look at him made me think...those two are going to get involved xD

I thik I saw it so soon? lol.

well about episode 37 was awesome, I think i watched it 13 times and it still made me laugh hahahaha well...by the way, I was like O_O when Riza was moaning in the bed.... xD

Anyone remember the glasses scene? that was like...aww Royy you smack so bad in your head to do that in front of all?? xD (it was so cute )

Aw.... I remember that part too! It was adorable.... (though I think it can also be interpreted as Roy trying to gauge if Fury could successfully impersonate Riza) Of course, I prefer to think of it otherwise. biggrin.gif

I might have noticed the pairing in FMA1, just can't remember what episode it started. And I didn't lose my insanity on the pairing until... episode 51 I think? LOL took me so long.

Yay I remember that glasses scene and when I first saw it I was like "wth is Roy doing to her lol".

And it just reminded me the scene when the nurse found out that it was Mustang cosplaying disguising as Havoc. Jealous Riza is jealous laugh.gif
hand-made-city
^Oh yeaah, she was definitely jealous. tongue.gif I didn't pick up on it the first time I watched the whole series... I had forgotten a lot of what happened during the 40-something episodes, but after re-watching it (with a more Royai-colored lens lol!) then I noticed it!

RoyxRizaFan
I was at an anime convention about three years ago, and the AMV had RoyAi in it (a various anime thing) and I freaked out, because I was only on the second volume and screamed to my friend, "Are they really a pairing?"
"Yeah. They're kind of cute."
"But, like...she's so smart and he's so stupid."
Ah, first impressions XD
After that, I was so curious that I kept such a close eye on them (picking up on the subtle things from then onward) and then suddenly LE GASP I was in love with the pairing!!!

Then, about a year later, I watched the anime and couldn't stand Roy's character. I was like, "Where's the Roy I love?" but I've grown to realize they're two different people. RoyAi didn't appeal to me in the anime. In fact, if I had seen the anime first, I don't think I would have liked Roy or Riza...IDK.

I just watched episode 25...that was just as straightforward as you guys said 0_0 WOW. I'm not complaining, though LOL it creeped my sister out for some reason.
zonkiethegreat
Well I watched the First Anime series before reading the manga. Honestly, I love both!!! I think the manga is fantastic on its own, and the first series stands great as its own thing as well.

As far as Royai, like I said before, its definitely better in the manga. I mean WTH happened at the end of the first series??? So it looked like they were kindof together and had something special at the very end. Then comes the movie. Although I was a huge fan of the movie, I felt like they should have focused on the characters we loved more, rather then Hitler and "our world".

Like what happened with Roy and Riza?? Why were they separated? I'm guessing it was a moral choice that Roy made. Roy in the first anime was very remorseful (still loved him). The manga Roy seemed much stronger, and ruthless. (also love)

Just like Riza in the first anime, seemed only like a sidekick, kind of just there. She's so much more involved and interesting in the manga, and seems to have a softer side in it too.

Oh man i can't wait for the next chapter of the manga!!! I sense some Royai or even LingFan coming up!
amestris_star
@Kale: You know hot pink is so fitting for Roy *laughs*

With respect to discussion, I really can't find myself to like the first series. Not at all.
Turdaewen
I liked the first anime just fine. I just don't like Roy and Riza in it. XD
They only really appeal to me in the manga XD I don't think they were that charismatic in the anime. Riza almost didn't appear!
So, what I like about the first anime is something completely different: the environment, the music, the art of it...
RoyxRizaFan
It makes you wonder how the anime got them SO WRONG. I mean, I guess it's because Roy and especially Riza didn't have much in the first seven volumes, which is what was out when the anime began...but still, I find it funny that they could have ended up so totally different.

I wonder what anime!Roy and manga!Roy would think of one another LOL

Interesting thought.... I think that manga Roy might be slightly disappointed in anime Roy. That's just my point of view on it though.

Kind of off topic, but I've been thinking... You know how Riza tells Ed that once Amestris is a democracy, she and Roy will probably be taken to court for the crimes they committed in Ishval? Does that mean that there's really no possible happy ending for the two of them? Not as a couple necessarily (though we can hope....), but as individuals even. Is there any way that either of them can live a peaceful life after Roy has accomplished his goal? This, of course, is assuming that Roy will indeed become Fuhrer and change the country because with the foreshadowing and whatnot, it seems that he will be (let's just assume for now). So if that happens, does that mean doom for the both of them or is there some sort of alternative I'm missing?

So if that happens, does that mean doom for the both of them or is there some sort of alternative I'm missing?

I totally have wondered the same thing. Since it's Arakawa we're talking about I don't think that she would just leave it out after Riza said all those things. I think she'll make mention of it at least and let us know what happened with that whole business...

bleh, sorry if I'm not forming coherent sentences, it is the end of a long and stressful day -__-"

But they won't be put on trial if Roy is the fueher when Amestris is a democracy...

My response to that question has always been to bring up the 520 cenz promise. Ed made it with Roy with what Riza told him in mind. I think as long as Ed and Al both make it through to the end (which I'm assuming will happen) then Roy will do everything he can to keep that promise made.

With respect to discussion, I really can't find myself to like the first series. Not at all.


Me too... I mean I don't hate it nor do I love it... It's just okay for me.... I only realized Royai after the last episode and when the movie came up I was like 'WTF?!'

I wonder what anime!Roy and manga!Roy would think of one another LOL

At which point of their lives? In Ishval, MangaRoy would have understood Anime1Roy's killing the Rockbells, realizing he could have done the same thing if ordered. MangaRoy would be saddended about Anime1Roy's attempt to rescue Hughes while he did nothing. In the present events of Brotherhood, Anime1Roy would look down on MangaRoy for letting Havoc get crippled and his moronic 'blackmail the Fuhrer' plan. Post-series, Anime1Roy would be shocked to learn about MangaSelim, considering what happened to his Selim. MangaRoy would be mixed about AnimeRoy getting revenge, seeing the consequences (with the latter very pleased at MangaRoy making the right decision).
Interestingly, I'm completing a fanfic about Chapter 95. In his apenuts 'kill Envy and anyone else who opposes him' state, MangaRoy gets a visit from post-CoS AnimeRoy. Actually, the visit occurs in some metaphysical realm within Roy's mind, where his anime1 counterpart tries to persuade him not to give into vengeful anger.

I like anime1!Roy. I watched anime first and though the final part was illogical, to say the least, I still liked it. Not sure when did I start to like Royai as such but I remember when did I and my sister start to pair them. Whenever Hughes called Roy, it always ended with Roy slamming the reciever and Riza telling him not to do that. And once Hughes finished their coversation with "Hurry and get merried!", Roy almost crashed the phone to pieces and Riza scolded him, my sister turned to me and said: "Those two are sooo getting married, no doubt about it!"

And then I read manga. It made sense more, all the characters were more detailed but I think anime1 already presented them to some depth well enough, so I came to love them, even if they barely appeared.
Couldn't understand Roy putting all his supperters to danger. I mean okay, he may have carried some of the way as well, trying to kill Bradley, but hey, all his folks could've been slaughtered by Bradley's loyal troups for all we know.

Recently I watched the last episode of anime1 again and oh, what a change:

First time: Bradley, you bastard, he's your son! Put him down! He's just a child!

Second time: Yeah, just strangle the little bastard. Go, Bradley! biggrin.gif

Then, about a year later, I watched the anime and couldn't stand Roy's character. I was like, "Where's the Roy I love?" but I've grown to realize they're two different people. RoyAi didn't appeal to me in the anime. In fact, if I had seen the anime first, I don't think I would have liked Roy or Riza...IDK.


I watched the original anime series first and I loved them both... Idk, I've always liked the first series. For me, it's more of a nostalgia thing now I look back on it, it was long ago that I watched it and it was what made me love FMA in the first place. It's not perfect by any means but I still love it.


On another note, SO glad Travis is coming back to play Mustang in the new series.
I just love his voice... rawrr.

Yeah, but keep in mind that Roy probably wasn't thinking right (like when he failed to consider Selim returning). Too much revenge on the brain...

A lot has been said about the Roy Mustangs of anime and manga being different, but there is one strong similarity: Both were VERY hurt about Maes Hughes' death, so much so that they were willing to throw everything away in order to make the murderer pay.

...You do know Anime1Selim was an innocent human? Unless you're putting the scene out of context whenever MangaPride makes his appearance. Sorta like watching the last episode every time MangaBradley does something nasty...

Haha, this is so true! I love how completely different this character is, depending of the version!
Illuminating-Darkness
Haha, I totally agree with the comment above me ^^

But there were a few good Royai moments in teh old anime...

I agree, but it's still nowhere close even to the amount in Brotherhood, and they're only about halfway through the series, right? So there's plenty more to come!

By the way, official subs have Bradley saying: "She can be used to get to you." biggrin.gif I liked "She is your greatest weakness" better, but as I understand no Japanese at all, I couldn't say if one is more accurate than the other. Really, I don't mind as long as it's Royai.
Reffer Lift
Hey all, I've been lurking around here for a while, and finally decided to join. XD

I remember when I watched parts of the first anime, I just really liked the couple. I think I had also heard that they were a couple or something. tongue.gif

In more recent years, and more recently reading the manga in it's entirety (I never watched the first half of the first anime, only the last 15 episodes or so for some odd reason. tongue.gif), I really grew to love the pair. When I read chapter 39, I fell in love with the couple (not to mention Roy with his shirt half ripped off. : D). I have also learned in recent years that I'm a sucker for anime military love, and seen with Dominic and Anemone in Eureka Seven. XD
Forgiven
Anybody else seem to notice a resemblance between Roy and Tim Marcoh?
