Yeah, when I saw the ending and the tattoo I was like "Oh... that's... um... I didn't see that coming. Wow." But, yes, I think the whole backstory thing works for any character compared to a character without one. But that goes especially for Riza- since she's not just Roy's bodyguard/assistant/shadow, etc. etc., but their own individual person. But anyways, ran.dom tattoo toss in the ending- nice touch, especially since the op didn't really give them much show.

Yes! Code scene next week! That means, of course, it'll be a while before we hear anything from that side of the story. >:\ The preview made made wonder what would have happened if Roy was so shocked he swallowed his pen cap in the process... hm...

I really am hoping that they do throw the 'burn my back' scene in there (along with the rest of you guys). Even as a filler, cuz I wouldn't mind that much. Hey, maybe in our Royai hiatus they'll throw one in or something. IDK, wishful thinking guys. Cuz we do need our Royai fanservice. wink.gif

I hope you're right! It's an important part, after all, and shouldn't be something only manga fans get to appreciate....

I love your new avatar/icon thing, by the way! biggrin.gif
angelofsarcasm89
Okay, that ending with Riza's tattoo just made me ridiculously happy. And yeah, I definitely would have preferred it if they'd kept the "Burn my back" scene in where it should have been, but eh, no use crying over spilled milk. Since they went through the trouble of sticking it in the ED, where everyone is just going to be reminded of it week after week after week, they pretty much have to address it at some point.

At this point, my dream moment for them to put that in would be in a filler episode. One that's either completely or mostly devoted to more Roy and Riza backstory. Little Roy learning alchemy, he and Riza meeting, Riza showing him the tattoo, all that fun stuff that would make my fangirl meter explode. laugh.gif
FMAobsessed
It is almost 2 am and I just came up with a theory about why the backstory of Riza's tattoo and the "burn my back thing" has not been explained. It is because Bones wants to keep on doing Riza fanservice for as long as they can. So they keep on showing the tattoo without explaining it. I mean think about it, Arakawa did one tatoo shot in the manga. And Bones didn't have any Riza fanservice in the first series, and now they do. So they will keep showing Riza's tattoo for as long as they can. You know for the fanservice.
A Pierrot's Aria
^I'd laugh out loud and never stop if that was the real reason it hasn't been explained yet. O.O But you know, somehow it wouldn't surprise me if that was part of the reason. xD!
Turdaewen
I don't know if they should have keep the scene where it is in the manga, cause I'm not in their heads to know their are up to and what they want to do to the story and how. And it may turn out to be very good.

So I'm not putting myself ahead of it, even because I'm not the one to think they should mimic the manga in every little detail exactly the way it is: For me, if they're faithful to the manga in it's 'core sense', it's enough. And I wouldn't like it otherwise, either, since that would be really poor in terms of 'artistic development'.
I just think it's a scene that's too important to the plot they're building to be left out (and THAT's why I'm anxious for them to show it), but it's useless to flame before we get further down the road and see the series as a whole and not a 'fragment'. Look at that Yoki thing, for example: people were flamming Bones for almost 6 months for leaving it out when, all the while, they wanted to create something different and make a flashback, more than an episode.

So, flamming it is just like criticizing a painting before the painter had a chance to finish it.

If it turned out better or worse that the manga is another matter, but we shouldn't flame them for doing or not doing something if we don't know what they're up to: let them finish before doing so.
Just the same with Royai: at first, people were also complaining Bones was 'anti-Royai', when in fact, they couldn't be more mistaken, as we have seen lately, with a heavy load of fanservice that wasn't even in the manga.

So, I'm not jumping to conclusions on anything just yet.


And about fillers, I don't object them if they don't interfere nor delay the story too much (which they won't, IF they actually appear). If they're aiming to do a Royai side story and it turns out to be good, on the contrary, I will be quite happy. Just as I would be happy if Arakawa decided to make a gaiden of the two.
So, I don't think fillers are bad in and for themselves. As long as they don't make a 'side quest' that lasts a lifetime (like most animes do) and do not go a road that makes that filler become OOC, I have absolutely nothing against it as I'm not against gaidens that are side stories.
Gimpyhair
I can totally see the "Burn my back" scene around chapter 95. That's the only place where it could fit.
IceSkadi
I agree with Turdaewen. If they will manage to not change the core of the story I don't mind a couple of filler episodes to introduce the "burn my back" scene.

This was my previous opinion too, but it's quite suspicious that they've introduced a scene with Riza's tattoo in the new ending when this part doesn't cover that chapter. However maybe they have used it just for an artistic/visual purpose (or as a fanservice as someone has already suggested tongue.gif).

I feel that it could probably fit in there too.... Actually, I can see it working out really well in a way. I'm pretty sure they could find a way to put it in without messing with the flow (or at least I have faith that they can), so I'm a little more optimistic now about its inclusion than I was before. Especially after this new ending!

As for a filler episode of the Roy/Riza back-story. My inner fangirl would go mad with happiness. I've always wanted to see them when Roy is actually learning alchemy from Riza's father. I mean, there's that Doujinshi that I hear about every now and then called Parallel Love that I think we've all seen images of.... But still..... Something official would be amazing! Though, the Royai we've been getting has been rather substantial in Brotherhood in my opinion!
MissPodoodle
I love the new op/ed, especially the ed. I wasn't expecting Riza's tattoo to show up in it and I was like, woah! ohmy.gif
Although is it just me or is the tattoo just a bit lower down on her back than it should be? O.o I'm not complaining or anything, I really love the art, it's just something I was wondering.

And, yay the code scene, I love that scene. Been waiting for it for ages =3

This is just a theory but, maybe the reason they didn't include the 'burn my back' scene in the Ishbal flashback was because Riza didn't tell Ed about it. I mean, it confused me in the manga when they had those flashbacks in with what she was telling Ed, I was like 'Did she tell him about that or not?' They seperated Riza's flashbacks and what she told Ed in the episode, so that cleared up some confusion.

And they might not have put it at the start of the episode because it wouldn't have fitted there.

I think that they'll have it as a short flashback in some episode (what one, I really don't know, but I don't think they'll devote a whole episode to it), but they can't not have it in. They did show it on the last op :/ But, this is just my speculation.

I'm really, really looking forward to that scene though, it really makes Roy and Riza's bond all that deeper to me.

jacksparrow589
MissPodoodle--Welcome! (EDIT: And happy birthday!) And no, you're not the only one who thinks something's weird about Riza's tattoo in the new ending. I think it's either lower down (as you mentioned), or smaller, which was my first impression. I mean, it shows at Mr. Hawkeye's funeral (at least, in the manga) poking a little above her collar.

Oh well. It's better artwork than I can do, so I'm not going to complain.

"Burn my back" around 95 would be nice. Kind of like, "You're becoming the very monster I'd hoped to prevent by burning this thing in the first place! What's the matter with you, huh?!"

Then again, this "filler" you speak of could also work nicely. *shrugs* I'm not picky so long as it's put in there somewhere.

As to whether or not Riza told Ed about that moment... I would guess she actually didn't, or at least that she didn't say it outright. The less people who know, the better, even if the tattoo is partially destroyed. While Ed is smart and trustworthy, there's always a "what if", and I doubt Riza's willing to risk anything happening.
Turdaewen
She didn't seem to tell Ed anything about her past with Roy, actually. The flashback that shows Roy is Master Hawkeye's apprendice is shown before Ed starts talking to Riza, remember?

So, she was probably remember it herself.

Even because, there was no need for Ed to know anything about it more than "we knew eachother before and met at Ishval" to understand what was as stake at Ishval. If they do have close relations before or not makes little difference in terms of what Ed wanted to know.

Moreover, it seems as if Riza wants it to be a secret between her and Roy alone. And so does Roy.

I got some nice ideads from my marvel swimsuit issues(especially the well-painted Tim ang Greg Hildebrandt that I want to inspire some nice sexy swimsuit beach fanart on the FMA couples which I posted on the Ed winry and I want to inspired Royai art.

here some examples of their romantic sexy beach times and well it's a nice excuse.

Gambit Rogue 2 examples

example 1
Lying in the beach in a very strange atomsphere. Be interesting if Arakawa explore more tropical regions of her world that similar to the south Pacific or Caribean.

Gambit Rogue 2 swimming in the sea with such a beautifully colored aquatic atmosphere. In a place like that, Roy would enjoy a nice night swim with Riza and enjoy her beauty and wonderful aquatic sights. (of course he can't use his flames)

Cyclops and Jean, sipping drink in the moonlight. sipping a double straw drink would a better idea than that picture.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2482/376937..._2364b9fed9.jpg

I'm not saying to use the same exact art, just some ideas and yeah I did look at this art and imagine Royai in that place and maybe some Edwin and Lingfan.

something like this pic drawned by hikari katsuya


jacksparrow589
Turdaewen--I don't suppose she related it to Ed through telepathy or something?

...No, I obviously didn't remember. *is sheepish*

Brotherhood can't come out fast enough now! I remember hitting this point in the manga, with the code and everything, and being all fangirly and stuff. Knowing what's coming takes a bit of the thrill out of it. But I'm still looking forward to the next episode!
SneakyRuler
Hadn't been here for a while (exam time in my country) and look how many new people appeared! Greeting to you, MissPodoodle, Ryan Hawkeye and kuro-unagi (nice avatar, by the way, Roy makes a beautiful bride!) and welcome.
@Kale: a doujinshi! Yes! Thank you for sharing pictures with us!

What I fell behind in? Yes, new manga chapter. We didn't get to see Roy and Riza that much but it made me happy anyway beacuase now Roy had recovered from his shock and acted rationally (which is quite admirable)

'Burn my back scene' will be shown, there's no other conclusion to it. They've shown Riza's tattoo on the ED to remind people how it looks like while on the background you can see the whole picture undistored... makes them wonder, huh? How come there's a big scar where the symbols should've been? Plus, the scene in which Roy finds Riza by grave of Ishbalan child she buried is mentioned in third OP.

(sorry, couldn't find any non-subbed version)

And that very scene ends with Riza asking him to burn his back. And when to show some roiai stuff if not now? You don't see much of Roy or Riza in this part of story line so it's only natural to come up with something for people not to forget about them completely. laugh.gif

Thalogens
On the Riza 'burn my back' scene... well. We'll see it when it comes... but I dunno, maybe in Brotherhood, instead of Riza remembering, maybe Roy will? In the manga, we saw the scene from Roy's point of view, as in, he as looking down at Riza... I can sort of see them slip the scene in with the code scene, as Riza is talking... S:
MissPodoodle
@jacksparrow589 & SneakyRuler: Thanks for the welcomes! ^^


And, yeah, when I first read the Ishbal chapters, I doubted that she had told Ed about it. But I did feel really confused because the flashback to her father's funeral and the 'burn my back' scene were spread through the whole volume. And then I seen a fanfiction that hinted that Ed had heard about it when she was telling him about Ishbal, which made me think that the author thought that as well :/

Anyway, I hope that scene does come up in a nearby episode. (maybe they're planning on breaking the Roiai drought with it =D )

And DoxyWings they could so do that! All the more Roiai for us XD
hand-made-city
That's interesting, that people thought that Riza might have told Ed about the tattoo... I never once thought that when I first read that volume... I caught on that while it was Riza's memories, not necessarily everything in that memory was what she told Ed. It was in the same time frame, so I guess it made sense to explain the tattoo before the Ishval stuff. But I don't think Ed knows about it at all. He has no reason to need to know about it anyway.

Ahh I could just imagine a whole filler episode dedicated to Royai. I wouldn't mind in the slightest. XD The Roy/Riza draughts kill me... I get so fidgety when I don't see them in an episode!
The_Twilight_Trinity
Yeah, I've always assumed that Ed had no idea about the tattoo. It seems to be only something between Riza and Roy. I think that's why Brotherhood showed Riza's thoughts of them before Ishval before Ed came to talk to her.
Kale Mustang
I doubt that Riza ever told Ed about her tattoo as it seems to me, at least, a private matter that doesn't really concern Ed in the slightest.

To me, her tattoo is what really bonds her and Roy together, as not only is the array on her back the array on his gloves (slightly tweaked but it's essentially the same thing), but his Truth Gate is quite similar to the tattoo as well.

The tattoo, until she decides to go the 'full disclosure route', should simply remain as something between her and Roy.
FMAobsessed
I don't think Ed know about the tatto because it is a private matter between her and Roy. I think the tattoo was shown as an eye grab for the reader. It was shown at the end of a chapter as a cliff hanger, and to have readers go back wanting to know the meaning of it.

Now Bones is doing that with the ending theme. They are stringing along the non-manga reader. And of course giving viewers some Riza fanservice.

I would not mind a Roy/Riza filler episode at all.

I'm dubious as to whether that would actually work. There are too many variables involved; how high, how far, how much fire/blast radius, and what's in the way, just to name a few, and in the chaos of battle I don't think she'd be able to communicate all of them quickly enough. Even if she holds onto and aims his arm to tell him direction, distance is hard enough to gauge when you can see. Then there's the issue of the spark; I don't know that his hands are in any condition to make any sort of spark-producing movement.

Well, he did just go through the gate. Maybe now he can create a spark WITH HIS MIND. oooWEEooo
But I figure if anyone can do that kinda double-team fighting, it's them.
Katya Martin
Yeah. They just need to figure out how to blow a hole in that black stuff...

I agree with this, it's too risky. but who knows? I don't think this is the be all and end all.

Whoa! Lotsa fanarts and such! Sweet! Thank you for sharing those! I agree with Katya--"PWNAGE" is definitely a legit sound effect. (If anyone's read "DramaCon" by Svetlana Chmakova, I'm pretty sure she uses "PWNED!" as a sound effect in a few scenes...)

As to Roy's role in the upcoming (er... current?) battle, are we overlooking that the sacrifices and May, Pride, and Father are inside Father, and the rest of them aren't? Or am I misunderstanding something here? Anyway, I think I tend to agree with... um... don't remember who it was, but over on the 103 thread, someone hypothesized that Roy would play the strategist role. Not that I don't want the gloriousness that is Royai, but Father was surprised when May managed to make it to where they are, and I'd wager there was some alkahestry going on there. Unless Riza's array comes into play by some magic, I don't see that happening.

(EDIT: Katya already pointed out the whole location thing. Sorry! I didn't read closely enough! I thought it hadn't yet been brought up!)

Okay, I officially feel like a party-pooper for all that now. But hey, beyond that, I think that Riza being Roy's eyes is the only way to go!

Oooh! Thanks rzerox21xx for the fanart! "Nice b-SHOULDERS?!" made be laugh for a good while there!

Yeah, I'm sort of with jacksparrow589 here. I think that it must have been May's Alkahestry that allowed her to get through the "stomach" thing, so I'm thinking that Riza most likely will not see Roy until the battle is over. Though, there was that panel in 103 that showed her thinking of how Bradley said he might not have made it out of the Gate all right. That might suggest that she's going to try to get in there somehow.... But I still wouldn't bet on it. I didn't hear about this theory where Roy might play a strategist role, but I could definitely see it happening if Riza can't be there to help him.

Also, the code scene in Ep. 40! It's a shame that they cut it short, but I dunno.... I thought it was better that they had all the extra time to spend in the Xerxes past. The only part I'm sort of bummed about is that they left out the "Why don't we have lunch sometime?" "Like we're doing now?" part and "I'm sorry to leave you alone." But otherwise, I thought it was all right.

Ahh, yeah, I'm looking forward to that scene. I haven't seen the episode yet (watching them on Funimation) but I saw the tease for it at the end of 39... when Roy figures it out he has the best "Holy crap!" expression I have ever seen.

Yeah the only way I can see Riza, the chimeras, etc reaching Father's room is if Scar's still fit enough to help them after defeating Wrath. Even then, it's unlikely, since Father seems to be able to negate attacks used directly on him; the only reason it might work would be possible interference from Hohenheim. I don't know.

I already posted it once here. But well, it was a long time ago.
She usually uses a K98k with sniper equipment. Great weapon. About her handgun... I don't even care, it's a usual 9mm gun and a usual western-style revolver.
