I actually liked that they used that scene as a cliffhanger. Because non-manga readers don't know which one of them is Envy. tongue.gif

I was thinking about that too! If I was just watching the anime (well, God forbid) I'd be driven crazy with suspense too. From that cliffhanger angle, it only looks like Roy has gotten himself into a sticky situation with Envy ^^

Oh YES! I knew it!! They couldn't just left it out!! It's the perfect moment to show this!

And, I bring more icons: biggrin.gif




Hope you like them. ^^

oh wow Michiyo, those are some beautiful Icons!! I like it! smile.gif
jacksparrow589
Okay, so I saw the screencaps for this episode and went, "Yay! Looks good!"

Then I came here and learned that that special bit of information that won't be left out, and went, "YESSSSSS! IT LIVES! T3H ROYAI LIVES ON!"

Or at least I did in my mind, since my roomie's still asleep, but I have this huge grin on my face right now, and it's not going away!

Tian Ai--Love the fanart! Ed and Ling's respective expressions are priceless!

Michiyo---Ooh, the pretty icons... Very nice!
Causmicfire
Yay! Nice work Tian Ai!Oh, and welcome back!


Wow, I hadn't really looked at much when responding a couple pages back(on a slow connection out in a small town where my gramps lives), but now I see what kind of conversation was going on. I do think they have been intimate. I wouldn't be surprised if it was when he first learned of her tattoo. She's alone, for the first time unbound from her father's rules, and she trusts him.

So glad we're getting flashbacks newt week! *happy dance* I guess we can trust Bones...

@Michiyo~Nice icons, I really like that first one.



RoyxRizaFan
I'm trying to trust BONES, but I really loved the way Arakawa placed it in earlier, so it wasn't out of the blue when the moment it came in handy arose. Oh well, maybe they'll pull it off. Maybe it'll be out of nowhere. Either way, I'm dying for this week's subs to come out so I can watch the full episode!

Adorable fan art, Tian Ai! I gotta say, Ling's reaction is my favorite XDDDD

@ Michiyo - I adore all your coloring jobs! I was wondering if I could ever use one of your avatars somewhere, so long as I credited you for it? It's fine if you'd rather I didn't, but your graphic are so great that I couldn't help asking tongue.gif You and causmicfire are very talented when it comes to this!
jacksparrow589
^I agree. It made sense where it was in the manga, but it's a powerful scene any way you slice it, and it's pretty obvious that it's going to be a "so, you're saying that meant nothing to you?" moment.

Oh, and I keep on churning out non-Royai 100 fanfic. No Longer a Cross, Not Yet a Comfort Summary: There's no escaping the rain. There never will be, and Roy knows it. But somehow, he's almost come to terms with it. Much hinted Royai. More of my post-manga imaginings. Spoilers for 100-102. (Reader be warned: you will be hit over the head with a symbol we all know and love towards the end.)
FMAobsessed
@Tian Ai: Great fanart!

@Michiyo: Cool coloring on the icons. I like them all.

Why did I let myself get so far behind in Brotherhood? Now I can't get all excited with everyone else about the Royai scenes.
Turdaewen
I'm so happy that they, in deed kept that scene ^^
Can't wait to see it, next week.
Tian Ai
Glad people like the fanart!
Haha, I think most people like the stragglers in the background more... smile.gif

I wonder how they're going to incorporate that scene with everything else that's happening?
Probably the part when Envy tries to guilt-trip and stir up conflicts about the Ishbal war?
Then it goes into flashback mode --> Roy's guilt, "burn my back" scene

I'd love it if they also included the scene where Riza says there is no way to repent for what they've done. And their conversation after the war, where Roy asks her, "So you want to continue to deceive yourself down this path?" And she replies, "We should be the only ones staining our hands with blood." Very powerful/important scene for the military, IMO.
FailToImpress
I'm a tad confused about the 'Burn my back' scence being included next week... I can't see any evidence of this? Was it in the preview? There certainly wasn't anything in the subtitles I had to suggest that, am I missing it somewhere? tongue.gif
SneakyRuler
Yeah, it was the first thing in the preview. You can see Riza and Roy in Ishbal. Riza looks sad, says something to Roy and he reacts horrified. First I wasn't sure but it can't be any other scene.

I must admit I lost hope a few weeks ago biggrin.gif I'm glad my judgement was proven wrong.
FailToImpress
*Looks back*
Yup, I missed it first time round. rolleyes.gif Since the preview was in a frame I think I was preoccupied with everything else on the screen, my bad.

Actually, that scene was already shown in episode 30. Don't think they'll go back to it.

And, my guessing is that they'll start the episode with the "burn my back" scene and connect it somehow with the rest.
ramencat
With the adding the 'burn my back' scene, they've made it even more Royai than before. And that cliffhanger, ahggggg! I know what happense, but still.... this is going to be a long week.

That's my guess too. They'll start with the flashback, and then move back to where episode 53 ended. Or they can also place it before the OP.

I was bored today (I shouldn't be with all things I have) and I made a fanvid including scenes of the new epi (I couldn't resist and I had to made another before the other im making and can't do because I want to wait to the end of the series smile.gif )

Michiyo - Ah, I forgot to say to you! Great icons, I love the one with Roy and Riza together smile.gif

rinoaebastel - Love the video! Very epic and climactic, all compiled intoone vid biggrin.gif You'll have even more material to work with in the last episodes!

Turdaewen - Thank you for correcting me, I can't believe I overlooked that >.<


Placing that scene before the opening would be good. Or perhaps when they're trying to talk sense into the Colonel, and Envy brings up the Ishbal events again?
jacksparrow589
rinoaebastel--Awesome vid! Very well timed! And the ending... I was going, "Nooooooo!" even though I know exactly what's going on. Great job!

Jeez... There are about 20 bajillion (yes, bajillion, my favorite nonexistent really big number) songs I can think of for Royai. I listen to my mp3 player and about every other song, I think "That's so Royai!" To me, their relationship can be described very well by music.

You know what guys? I think I just found out why Riza would suspect that it wasn't Roy, but Envy.

Envy's reaction was clear when he found Riza. He did not suspect Riza might be Envy himself. Sounds confusing, but I hope that you guys understand. Anyone who is not Envy but is fighting Envy will be smart enough to suspect his/her comrade. Envy did not show any sign of suspecting Riza. If it was Roy, his anger must have led him to suspect Riza as Envy.

not only that but he would have demanded to know why she followed when he ordered her to stay put
angelofsarcasm89
Actually, while it'd be great if they put the scene before the OP, I'd absolutely love it if they just took a minute and piled on the Royai. Like, Riza does the whole "He calls me Riza when we're alone, just kidding!" line, and we see a kinda inner monologue thing where she's thinking "How could I not know it wasn't him, after all we've been through?" and show a little montage of them together that includes the Burn My Back scene.
jacksparrow589
How Riza knew never exactly made sense to me up until now. I guess nobody ever explained it that clearly. I mean, that was what I'd figured, but it just didn't quite click for some reason.

As to where THE SCENE should go, at the beginning would be fine. I kinda like my flashbacks in context, though. Either way, I just hope this episode lives up to the hype! (Then again, seeing as we all figure BONES ships Royai, I think it will.)
Tian Ai
Not only the lack of suspicion, but Envy-Roy's acting is a bit off. He says something like, "Well, since you're here, you can assist me. Stay close to me." Where the real Roy probably would have yeah, been freaking out at her for getting herself into the dangerous situation and not staying put.

Sunday... come quicker!

That makes sense. I have no doubt that Riza will have sussed that out already. Even then, something was off about Envy as Roy, you could tell it wasn't him. Although maybe if I hadn't read the manga I wouldn't be so sure.

I have a feeling that the 'scene' in the next episode will be at the beginning, similar to that of episode 10 with Hughes and Roy in Ishbal.

I genuinely thought that she done it not because she knew it was Envy, but it was another one of their 'codes'. I bet Roy has some sort of retaliation to her pointing a gun to the back of his head that would let Riza automatically know it was the real him. Like when Riza tapped her cup twice, Roy replied with two taps of his pen... I dunno, I'm just speculating.

Oh, and awesome figurines, anglestar2408, I wish I could find stuff like that in the UK :/

Ahhh I totally called it when I said that the burn my back scene would happen now! That was at least 100 pages ago in this thread, but still.. XD At least they're getting around to it, and not dropping it out completely. Episode 53 was epic, and I can't wait for the next one now!

Ohh Tian Ai I meant to say, I love your fanart! Very pretty!

As for Riza guessing it was Envy, I have my own theory... Riza was able to sense Gluttony sneaking up behind her, as well as Pride... so I suppose she could sense Envy too. Not the way the Xingese do, but she still gets that feeling... dunno though. That's my guess!
Kale Mustang
Thought you guys would appreciate the significance of this... smile.gif

jacksparrow589
Kale--Thanks for the pic!

Serious Roy is serious.

Disguised Grumman is... just plain weird.

As to how Riza knew about Gluttony: he had to be large enough that Riza would hear/feel him coming. I mean, it's Gluttony! How she knew about Pride, though... maybe she does have a sort of sixth sense. Or just incredibly honed instincts. But Envy's behavior is a bit of a tip-off if you're paying attention, which Riza almost always is.

Haha, thanks Kale!

She does have extremely sharp senses, 'keen as a hawk', if you will biggrin.gif
She would have been on guard for suspicious behavior, since she knows of Envy's shapeshifting abilities.

I like what Thalogens said about the secret signal, but not for this situation. They made a promise about her being able to shoot him from the back, and I think that would be more of an unspoken, unplanned thing between them. In this case, I think she just knows it's not him, from the way he reacts and how he speaks to her.

Thank you, hand-made-city, and awesome for calling that so early on! ohmy.gif


I couldn't tell it was Grumman at all when I first saw the episode. I was like, why the hell is this random old granny getting so much footage? o.O
Katya Martin
Heh, when I was reading through that I was thinking, "Is that Grumman? Nah... someone else... WAIT IT IS GRUMMAN. WHAAAAAAT."

Roy's reaction to that was just hilarious.



I believe the term for that expression is "lol wut".
