Michiyo-
I'm in a crazy Royai mood now, I can't stop grinning. This epic chapter made me so happy. biggrin.gif

Now we just have to wait for the translation.
RizaXRoy
Hello guys!!!! It's really been a while!!

All I can say about the chapter 101 is .....perfectly AWESOME because it's really full of Royai!! *dancing+screaming*
Yeah~can't wait for this chapter to be animated!! *OMG*
I love this chapter so much!! Can I say this is the BEST chapter of Royai moment?!
I feel like Roy is almost in tears. If I am Roy, seeing Riza is bleeding and lying there, surely tear up my heart.
Roy keeps 'hugging' Riza closely to his arm until his fight with Wrath
! I love such adorable scenes! biggrin.gif
Well, I LOVE Roy's anxious expression, Riza's eye signal, of course the hug and.....Arakawa-sensei!!
And I would be more happier if Roy calls 'Riza' under his breath. Hehe tongue.gif

Sorry if overreacting!

A long wait again to know what's gonna happen to Roy.

See ya guys~ Bye!! take care!!
Kale Mustang
Getting away from the chappy 101 talk, I noticed something while watching ep. 31 last night - and it struck me as funny after our eyecolor debate.

Madam Christmas' eyes are blue, and even though Roy's her biological nephew, I'm guessing that the Mustang family had blue eyes.
Turdaewen
Lol And back to the blue eyes... lol

I want to see the translations. ^^

But yeah, I want the translations nao, plskthxbai.

Well, the plus side of not feeling well enough to sleep was that I was up when the raw finally surfaced XD Maybe having seen it will help me sleep some...who am I kidding, I probably won't get proper rest until a translation is posted. not to mention it's already been 5 hours since it was posted and I'm still not asleep...10 am here

Loved that how close he held her after helping her up...I think I melted the moment I saw it. *feels like such a sappy girl*
hand-made-city
*faints*

I LOVE THIS CHAPTERRRRR!!!! And for the record, I think all of us Royai fans turned into saps the moment the preview pics had come out... I certainly melted into goo!!! Cute hug, cute hug!

What freaked me out was the way that guy dragged Riza across the ground like that... the trail of blood she left behind was shocking... >.< Poor Riza.

Yay I downloaded the raw.
This chapter is in the top 2 or 3 for me. tongue.gif

I was horrified as well... even though I more or less knew the outcome! Poor Roy! Really, even if Riza was giving him "eye signal" and he was sure what he was about to decide would be right, I couldn't help but feel sorry for him. How helpless looking he was just before he refused to perform human transmutation and sent Dr Goldtooth to hell.
Miverel
Kale! You're even better than Prozac for me biggrin.gif Thank you for another amazing image!
Irena
Just finished reading 101. Wow, I was anxious for Riza even though I knew she'd be okay - that sure says something about Arakawa's storytelling skills.

I loved that little smile Riza gave after Roy hugged her; for me that was even more "d'aww" worthy than the hug itself.

Of course now everyone is worried about Roooy. sad.gif My poor fingernails might not survive the next month.
hand-made-city
Okay so, I don't understand much Japanese, but I can read it... so I've been trying to make sense of a few of these pages...

Starting with page 12, Roy yells 'LIEUTENANT!'

Page 13:
Roy: "Lieutenant, hang in there!"
"Can you hear my voice?" "Answer me, lieutenant!"


Goldtooth (we still... don't have his name?): Kimete kureta ka ne Mustang-kun... what's that mean? (It means I'm useless at translating..... @_@ )

Ehhh this is hard...

Page 14:
Roy's still yelling for Riza to answer him... still yelling "lieutenant!"

Goldtooth: *says something about the human transmutation*
"Who will you transmute? Family? Friend? Lover?"

(Kono onna ga shindara rensei suru ka ne? Sore demo ii yo.) For some reason I can't phrase this right. Something about 'this girl would die without the transmutation. But that's okay."

Page 15:
Riza: "I won't die/I'm not dead."
(It's one of these... Riza, you're too awesome.)
Next phrase is "Meirei de shinne nai koto ni natteru no yo" which is something like "I was ordered not to die" though that's not the direct translation....


Okay I... I give up. There are plenty of people on this board that can translate, so I'll leave it to them! It's so useless to be able to read Japanese but not understand it! XD

EDIT: haha whoooa.. Someone posted a scanlation already? Screw this, I'm never translating anything again! *dies*
Michiyo-
^That's what I could understand, too.
And on pg 31, Roy said: "Hang in there, Lieutenant! Open your eyes!"
Kale Mustang
Ahh, nothing like seeing Riza's "I've been ordered not to die." line in the ch. 101 scanalation to put me in a good mood. happy.gif
hand-made-city
Yes, that line was perfect! I knew that would come back into play, after Roy gave that order to his team!!
Michiyo-
I knew it! I said it a month ago that the underground promise will be mentioned again and I was right! biggrin.gif
And Riza keeps the promise he made to Roy. smile.gif

Ah so royaish happy.
I have to tell you that I won't be here from tomorrow till friday. Thx to London. I'm glad that the chapter came out before I went away. The Royai mood will guide me through the trip =D Haha love you all ~ Bark.
And that Anticlimax or how the guys in the manga called it, really annoys me! Rrrrrr.....
Blue_Haven
I loved how he just kept holding her for a second and looking into her eyes right after May had saved her. There was like a huge scuffle going on between the rest of the crew but it was like Roy and Riza were in their own little world for a moment. *meeelts* Thank you Arakawa! I feel like I need to write a letter of gratitude to that woman or something. *sniff* Such a lovely chapter.

Ok, get it. I was expecting some other words, but probably I'm just too GREEDy for more Royai moments biggrin.gif Arakawa is spoiling us ^^

I see I don't need to answer it, Tombow just did smile.gif

Anyway I must admit I'm not that worried about Roy (he'll be with the four best alchemists in Amestris, what's to fear?) but man, do I want to know what shall happen! When you read the chapter scanlated, it seems shorter sad.gif

How long was it? Five seconds? So Riza and Roy got five seconds of happiness and then everything went more complicated...

NEW. FAVORITE. CHAPTER. EVER.

THE ROYAI IS WORTH THE CAPS LOCK.

Ha ha! I totally love whoever said that Mei is a Royai fan too! It's so true Royai>Philosopher's stone. I'm sort of surprised she had to think about it at all, actually. It's sad that they couldn't enjoy more time together before Roy got taken out, but I'm not worried about him too much. I think he'll make it, and now that Riza is okay, I don't think that she'll have anymore trouble. Of course, we can't be sure, and I hate that..... But this chapter is so amazing. I can't believe they managed to surpass all of the Ishval Royai, chapter 94 and 95, and 39, which was my favorite chapter up until now.

CRAZY AWESOME!

ROYAI LOVE TO EVERYONE HERE! HUGE (CANON!!!) VICTORY FOR US!!!!!!!

cheers.gif

FMAobsessed
Arakawa I am sorry for ever doubting you when it came to Royai.

I wish I could have stayed in my "Royai Fangirl Bubble of Happiness" all day. But I couldn't because I was too busy trying to make appointments with people that could not be found or reached at all today. Sorry if I digressed. But my day was stressful and frustrating. But at least when I come here, I can join in on the Royai celebration.

Doesn't anyone else think that Roy and Riza have a "Royai telepathy" like the Elric Brothers have their "Elric Telepathy?" Cause I do.

I love how the dog at the end was named Anticlimax. LOL!
BirdieNumNum
I think this is my new favourite chapter biggrin.gif I'm supossed to be studying for my exams, but I can't stop reading the chapter. It all seems too good to be true.

Yet I've been seeing some negativity concerning Royai in various forums I've seen.

People are starting to say that Mustang and Hawkeye are just friends, and their relationship is purely platonic.

hand-made-city
Mmm I've seen some of that too. It's so silly... as soon as something Royai-ish happens, people start denying it? Why's that?
BirdieNumNum
Beats me. You would think people would be doing the opposite- celebrating the fact that we got some awesome Royai this chapter. I can't believe some people's faith is so easily shaken.

I guess they just think it's too good to be true.

Yeah, there was a comment like that on the 101 Spoiler board that I noticed. I can sort of see where that might come from at first glance. If you haven't been keeping up with all of the subtle hints throughout the manga, it could be interpreted as friendship, but there's something in the way that they interact that suggests something far deeper than a platonic relationship. For instance the "shouldn't you go play with Elizabeth" line and "marry my granddaughter" suggests that both Roy and Riza's closest family members know that there's something going on underneath the exterior. Also, when Roy calls Riza and expresses such a deep concern for her after the Pride ordeal and the way she responds to the call makes me feel like there's more than friendship. Her facial expression in particular and the "How does he manage to have such good timing" line. I also really can't imagine that Roy would have reacted similarly to how he did in 101 if he had been present when Hughes died. In those first panels, it really seems that he's going to lose it all over again. As for chapter 101, the body language, again shows a deeper bond. You can really see it in the way he holds onto her so tightly (Mei even comments on this). He also keeps her close just before Wrath comes in (see my avatar). This just doesn't seem like a friends-only pose to me... And then, of course, there's the matter of how Riza reacted in chapter 39 when she thought Roy was dead. That, to me, is proof that he was not just a friend. I have a lot of close friends, but I would never give up my life simply because I heard they were killed. I would be devastated, yes, but I wouldn't just give up like she did.

...And there's a lot more than that, but honestly I think I should stop before I get too far into it.....
Irena
Royai is one of those relationships that you don't really see unless you look for the subtle hints.

I watched the first anime before I started reading the manga, and at the time I wasn't really interested in the romance, so by the time the last episode rolled around, I was like, "wait, since when were they a couple? I thought they were just good friends." Then when I started reading the manga, something clicked and I finally figured it out - "Oh yeah, that totally makes sense. They do have the hots for each other!" Although for a while I had to keep rereading chapters where I missed some little hints the first time. xD
spectator
Just read the RAW,

Really, Riza gave Roy that 'if you open the gate, I'll kill you myself' look. It's really deadly. I felt like laughing. She mentioned it before, no human transmutation is needed. She kept on emphasizing that and that she won't die. Riza is strong!!

And Mei, you're my new hero!!!
Lt. Misha Mustang
I'd already seen the chapter, but he is holding her for every minute that he can throughout this WHOLE CHAPTER!!!!. Thank you, Arakawa-sensei!!! Only took like...SIX YEARS, but I guess that's better than never Also it looks like Riza's referred to as his lover by the enemy
Miss MP
Considering it looks as if Riza was referred, by proxy, as Mustang's "lover", it would be really silly to deny that their relationship is platonic. In fact, it would be downright ignorance of the context. But hey, if people want to IGNORE it, whatev.

The best part is that every subsequent panel after the embrace shows Mustang not letting her go; he is holding her until he absolutely HAS to let her go.

We werent talking about anyone in particular. I was just commenting that I've been seeing a lot of people starting to question the nature of Mustang and Hawkeye's relationship on other forums I've visited.
Miss MP
I simply don't understand that mentality, only because . . . the relationship has always been such, and it likely will continue to be subtle. Unless of course, the author decides to a throw in a twist that could enhance it, flesh out a new dimension for the pair, or, make it seem out of character. Truthfully, I believe it will continue as it always did; subtle but strong, reinforced by what ISN'T said rather than blatant action. Though Mustang clutching Hawkeye to his chest is a moment that we can all admit is adorable, this was a direct response from him [because the male side always seems to receive less spotlight on specific feelings, particularly romantic] that drives home how close this was. But what element is ever-present? Hawkeye's glare. The connection is shown through what /wasn't/ said, what was not obvious: The invisible connection that is just as important as anything else.

I think kisses and saying I love you to each other isnt in them at least not yet. I like how they are now with the little looks, how they protect each other and the hug was so cute. I was squeeling throughout the entire chapter. I love May's expression too its was funny.

I was going to write what I did in the ch 101 thread here but I would of been slaughtered or at least "die to death". xD I'm not saying I dont want them to be together, I'm just confused about what kind of relationship they actually have in the manga. We'll see.


Ah... I think that the post that I personally responded to was yours. Don't get me wrong I do see your point and rational me isn't going to deny the possibility of it being simply a platonic relationship (though rational me also much prefers the romantic one...) Still, at the same time the Royai fangirl in me flipped out with a "ZOMGNOWAINOTHEYDIDNT!!!!" sort of reaction. Sorry about that.... When it comes to Royai I really can have multiple personalities. It's actually.... rather disturbing..... huh.gif

I hope you don't think I want to "KILL YOU SO HARD YOU DIE TO DEATH" (I still love that! biggrin.gif) It was sort of like a knee-jerk reaction for me.

Kinda freaky seeing my exact quote from there posted here. huh.gif I wanted to make it myself as I was headed this way...I thought I'd already posted for a second... dry.gif

Either way excellent chapter biggrin.gif .


Ooo that was kinda spooky until Lt. Misha Mustang explained what had happened! XD

But yes, it did take a veryyyy long time for us to get a nice big reaction outta Roy and have him show his feelings for Riza. Which he definitely did, there's no doubt... that reaction was huge. In the panel where he's struggling to break free from the soldiers, he just looked so desperate.
