Wow, that's interesting. Don't really get why Olivier is in it, and I am mixed about the type of 'fanservice' that we see here of Hawkeye and have been seeing, but overall its a very cool scan. Thanks for the link rzerox21xx!


Nooo DistantBlue don't skip out on "Dinner a Deux"! How could you pass up Barry crack fics? XD Well that's okay..

And as for the scan, I don't think every shot of Riza without a shirt on is considered "fanservice". I think the picture is tasteful enough not to be labeled as such.
Irena
Hmmm . . . . That's an interesting scan. I guess what bugs me (and other people have mentioned it as well, I'm sure) is that Riza's tattoo is being portrayed as something obviously important despite the fact that there hasn't been any explanation of it. If I hadn't read the manga I'd be a little confused; not everyone may make the connection that "important research = tattoo."

And Roy's expression makes me think it looks like he's being forced by Olivier to watch some horrendously bad soap opera. xD

amestris_star
I actually tend to like that scan... maybe the lesser thing I like is Roy's expression, too dramatic, but the rest is pretty symbolic and can actually be considered as a hint at Chapters 100 and 101 I suppose.

Miverel
A nice scan it is wink.gif
I especially like the page with Riza and Bradley! And just like Amestris_Star wrote, it's quite symbolic...

Well since it seems that a few people are now reading the heavy and depressing "Apotheosis", here's a few light-hearted fics that I dragged out of my favorites on ff.net!

Bright, Unfinished Sky


I loved it! Again, it showed Breda and all the Mustang-tachi as real personalities and I liked the tone of it (as when you get an overall feeling of a story that goes with throughout reading it)

There's never enough Barry! Crack fic while everybody still acts like themselves for most of the time!

Thanks a lot for the scan, rzerox21xx. I like it, especially the way it's hinting towards manga chapter 100 while it's meant to be mostly about Brotherhood. I don't thing there's any fanservice icluded (not telling fanboys won't like the picture) as it shows the tatto and is not trying to over-sexualize Riza at the same time.

Pfft, fine. I'll read it, LOL. smile.gif

I guess so, since there is no boob shot or anything. Hmm....now that I look at it, it really is more 'tasteful' as you say then erotic.

Now that you mention that, it's kinda irksome. Hopefully we get a flashback or something in the upcoming episodes, because waiting until....what, 94 to hear of it again will be hard on the anime-only people who only have been briefly introduced to it in the Ishbal episode and the magazine scans.

*pops her head in*

I've been busy with conventions and the flu, so I haven't been around in a bit... *waves to everyone* What did I miss?

@ the magazine pages - Roy needs to calm himself down, but I like the picture of Riza and Bradley for the reasons mentioend before. That's cool!

Right now I'm getting myself to catch up on Brotherhood...I think I'm behind, like, five episode T_T I'm trying to suffer through the Ishbal flashback so I can move on to the other episodes...

BTW: That BarryxRiza fan fic is awesome XD It's always been one of my faves~

that pic is made of awesome. it looks like bradely is holding riza hostage with his sword while she topless while Roy is agnozing. not sure to make of it.

Wow, what a picture is all I can say... Riza's super gorgeous (at least Bradley isn't looking at her chest O_o) Roy is rocking the face of ultimate-angst (or in the words of Kit-chan, angry constipation). I see this picture as showing the great pressure Roy and Riza are under, and how tied together they are - tattoo flash says it all. It's also kind of cool how Olivier is shown in cold light while Riza's lighting appears warmer.

And hey, I've never posted here, so I'd just like to say... I LUVS Royai! 'nuff said. dance3.gif (Please excuse bad spelling moment)

One last thing... I drew a picture in the true style of Hiromu Arakawa of what would Roy and Riza's daughter would look like if she grew up and everything. I know some people don't think they'd go and have kids, but it's fun to think about anyway! tongue.gif
Clicky if interested>>> http://EveningAlchemist.deviantart.com/art...x-Roy-141997082
Hagaren_4ever
^Yeah, yeah! I like the idea of black hair for a daughter as well, I drew some similar concept art (except she was like, 5 lol) Great job! wink.gif
The_Twilight_Trinity
Nice scan! It looks pretty intense.... SO MUCH CHAPTER 100/101 FORESHADOWING!!!!!

Despite Riza's *gasp* nakedness in front of Bradley I rather like the pic! I was sort of freaked out by the aforementioned reason before, but he's not even really looking at her, so it's less creepy that way.
FMAobsessed
Isn't it kind of soon for Bones to be posting foreshadowing for chapters 100 and 101?
But still I like the picture. I also feel like the first series never had any image like it.
alicechen
Man, this thread is blasting with posts!! And I have no complaint.

I'm in love with them as well. Heck, they're one HOT couple indeed. Favorite episode has to be episode 19 when Hawkeye is devastated thinking that Lust has killed Roy. And the way she always cares and reminds him NOT to save her. Also, that episode when he runs quickly to save her!! Sweeeeeeet! smile.gif
Irena
^ Yes, episode 19 was srsly FULL OF SEXY along with a topping of Royai goodness. x] I don't think any other episode has been so consistent when it comes to good-quality animation.


@FMAobsessed - Well in the first series we barely saw anything of Riza at all. Most of the time she was just a side character who just stood next to Roy looking all " >:| "
Whenever I'm watching Brotherhood and see Riza I'm like "OMG! What's this?! Screentime? And *le gasp* lines?"

jacksparrow589
^And a personality to boot? No WAY! smile.gif

Been following... just haven't been posting for a while.

Foreshadowing was the first thing I thought of when I saw that scan, too. It's very... interestingly arranged. But rather well-done, I'd say.

But seriously, are they EVER gonna show the "burn my back" scene? I know we've been given hints and stuff... and it's kinda obvious what happened there if one pays close enough attention, but still, that scene is an integral part of Roy and Riza's relationship.

Yeah, I've been wondering that too. I was really hoping they would sneak it into one of the episodes that followed shortly after episode 30. I thought that they might add it to the scene where Riza came in to "pick up the things she forgot" in episode 31, but of course, they didn't. It seems like such an odd thing for them to cut, but at the same time I don't really know where they might add it in anymore. Mrrrrr....
Turdaewen
Maybe they'll put it when Riza discovers about that certain person... *hint*

Anyways, I still hope they'll fit it somewhere. They showed it on the opening, for Christ sakes!!! lol
Michiyo-
I really hope that they'll fit that scene somewhere later, because it has an importance in chapter 95. Or maybe they'll show it then as a flashback?
hand-made-city
I don't know if they'll ever show that scene, at this rate! None of the lost material has popped up at this point, so it seems as if they're just dropping bits and erasing them from existence. sleep.gif But this scene in particular is bad, because I've noticed that a lot of the fans who haven't read the manga couldn't understand the idea behind tattoo, or felt that the manga-fans were making a big hype over nothing (which is NOT true! It certainly is something important!) So for the anime-only fans... they're really missing out on something noteworthy, and as a result, I don't think they can understand the characters as deeply as they could.

If anything, I sorta like Michiyo's idea of it being shown as a flashback for the episode based on chapter 95. I'd prefer it in its original place, of course, but since that can't happen, the chapter 95 scene is the only other logical place to put it.
A Pierrot's Aria
I'm not saying it's unimportant and I understand where everyone is coming from, but you're all being so negative and impatient! xD

Everyone's making this huge assumption that it's never going to appear just because it hasn't appeared when they wanted it to; sure, that would probably have been better, but they may have chosen to reveal it later on and in a slightly different way or something. I think it's best before anyone goes ridiculously up in arms that we just let the episodes continue and THEN if it doesn't show up ever, complain about it- then we'd have more of a reason to complain about. Doing it now isn't going to make the scene magically appear. >.>;;

Seriously, I bet if they added that scene in the Ishbal episode people would have complained because there was less of Ishbal. xD

Personally, I think it will appear later on; I don't believe they'd just randomly show Riza's tattoo and never bring it up again. xD;

(I don't mean to come across hostile in anyway, it's just a thought. x.x)
SneakyRuler
I'm very optimistic on this topic. It'll be just like Riza eyecatch. When you think there will be none of it at all, you get more than you hoped. Not the next episode, not the one after it but hey, they HAVE to show it. What justice would be in showing her scars if they're not explained? They explained Scar's scar so why not Riza's? laugh.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
^Huzzah!

I was beginning to think everyone on this thread were being negative nellies on the subject of Riza's scar. I've found new hope. xD

And I forgot to mention before, the scan is really cool. : D
Aribelle
Wait, what? They didn't show that part in the anime? That's really weird. It makes no sense to me why they would want to leave that out. Or even put it out of order. DX

I'm sure they'll put it in somewhere. It's an important plot point and it's important for character development. I mean...it makes no sense leave it out. The only possible excuse I can think of is maybe that it was one of those things where the flow worked well on manga but didn't translate well to anime...? But that doesn't even seem like a valid reason.

>.> seriously. Where is the logic in this?

Also, nice scan :3 thanks to those who posted it.
RoyxRizaFan
There's a reason why Arakawa put the tattoo scenes in Ishbal instead of putting them in chapter 95. It not only established the depth of their relationship, but having it beforehand foreshadowed to future things. Did they even mention her tattoo or flame alchemy in episode 30???? If they didn't, showing it all into chapter 95 material will be overload, seem forced, and come out of nowhere. It just wouldn't flow right dry.gif
Turdaewen
Yeah... that's exactly why I'm not worried at all. There's still about 30 episodes of FMA:B ahead. That's almost half the anime! I don't doubt they'll tell about it at some point.
Just like people were flamming about Kimbley's flashback didn't appeared in episode 30 and everyone was overreacting and, then, in ep. 31, it showed!

So, don't put yourselves ahead: I'm sure everything will fall into place no problem. And if they don't show it, well, THAN, we can complain about it.
jacksparrow589
Patience =/= my strong suit. Sorry 'bout that...

I know it'll show up eventually, but it's kind of like if your dentist were to eat something totally delicious while cleaning your teeth: You've got this lovely teaser right in the opening sequence (at least, that's what we're assuming it is), but where's the scene? I want to see it so badly!

I showed this picture to my brother, and of course he has to try to ruin the awesomness of the picture XD. But don't worry I took care of him. And what I mean by that is that I yelled at him.
black~hayate
Oh holy s...gun! That cover is awesome!
8 more days and we will have 102 wink.gif
rinoaebastel
oh, they did a nice cover XD

PS: Only 8 days? sigh...I will be in the middle of the hell of exams. But at least it can be a relief
Michiyo-
I already posted it on the other thread, but I'm sharing it here too: biggrin.gif
HQ version of the box cover:


And it wasn't made by Bones, it's Arakawa's work. smile.gif

Chapter 102 will be out next week! Can't wait for it! I hope it will be as epic as ch. 101.
FMAobsessed
That picture needs to go in an artbook. I just love it!

8 more days until chapter 102! I have the feeling it will be coming out over next weekend, which is also the weekend I have to study for my math final, and do my political science final. Ch 102 will be my well deserved study break.

The chapter should be epic.

hand-made-city
Love that scan! Thanks for the HQ one, Michiyo!

I have a feeling I won't be able to read chapter 102 until way after it comes out.. I'll be so busy that week that I won't have time to read it! A friend is coming to visit me for the week and she's the kind that needs to be entertained constantly... plus my flight back home is around that time!

>_< Ohh I hope I'll find time to at least take a peek at the chapter when it comes!
The_Twilight_Trinity
Oooh! Epic box-cover! I want....

Yeah, this thread has been quiet for awhile. Or maybe it just seems extra quiet because there isn't nearly as much hype as there was over 101. I'm still excited for chapter 102 though! Not much longer at all...
BirdieNumNum
I said this over on the other thread where the scan was posted but I'll say it here too. I love that cover! The fact that it's drawn by Arakawa makes it even more awesome. Apart from the Figure Blue cover it's the only bit of Arawaka-drawn work to feature just the two of them on it.

Well, the chapters don't "officially" come out until the 12th, so I make it 9 days until 102. This month has gone by so fast. A lot faster than the last one did. Although I guess it's helped that I've had exams to distract me.
Thalogens
Figure Blue? What is this Figure Blue? Noo, I am so misinfomed D':

And again, NOOO - 102 will come out in the 2 weeks of exams I have. Great. Oh well, we all know FMA is higher in my list of priorities.

Thanks for the picture thing c:

^ It's a figurine set that was released in Japan. Arakawa did some artwork for the box that it came in.

I've already set that as my desktop background tongue.gif Thanks for posting that, Michiyo!

102 comes out this week, right? *does happy dance* Wait, I shouldn't be dancing: it's all going to be depressing...I'm positive that Roy won't die at this point, though. Same goes for the Elric Brothers. Something bad will happen to him, though, I just don't know what, just that it won't be fatal.

@ Hagaren_4ever - Thanks for posting that, since I didn't know what it was either. *drools* I'd looove to have that figurine. I wish there were better stores nearby T_T that is so amazing...the RoyAi fan inside of me is screaming out for it XDDD Hayate is even there!

Here's the Figure Blue pic without all the writing on it:

I CAN'T WAIT! I woner what it will be named :/
Our last hint from the previous chapter was "the Elclipse"
someone save me -.-"
FMAobsessed
I want that figurine, and I want the book too.

The wait between 101 to 102 was much faster than 100 to 101 agreed? I am positive that Roy will appear in the chapter. And I hope Riza at least appears in the beginning of the chapter, maybe she could be concerned for Roy.

Besides I meant you when I said " I know someone who has it"

Oficially the manga chapter will come out on 12th.
Unificially we might get it the 10th xD So it's... one week to wait, I guess...

UPD: The figure is dusty! D= U haz 2 clean it alot! Ya know, such awesome piece of Royai needs to be clean! xD

He'll apear, but maybe in the second half, she didn't include Ed+co in chap 101 as far as I remember (?) so hmm, I spose she'll put something of them in it. Meaning less Royness. And lesser Rizaness seeing as Roy is priority now.

BTW, I didn't say that I just looove the art from DVD box~ Please, let this art be also on American release~
Well, I think we won't see Riza for a while in the chapter but Roy will be there for sure. About wishful thinking, we already saw some nice Olivier&Izumi fight/interaction, now it's time for Riza&Olivier fight/interaction, I'd just love to see this~

Ohhh yeahh, have we ever seen any Olivier/Riza interaction before at all? Have they ever been in the same panel? Ahh, they'd be good friends, I imagine.

Olivia talks about Riza in chapter 67:

"We often trained with the soldiers from Eastern HQ. I know of Hawkeye and Havoc. It would be a shame to lose them. There must be something we can do."

She seems to respect Riza's abilities as a soldier and believes she is worth assisting. It would be great to see them working together, but that probably won't happen in FMA. Perhaps after FMA it would happen, if that makes sense. Though it'd be awesome if we could see it biggrin.gif I'm happy she met Izumi, at least.
