eh? EH? has the new character song aired? who's character's songs are those? riza's or roy's? OwO
A Pierrot's Aria
^They haven't aired, but the CD with them on is coming out on the 26th May. : )

In fact, I just found out which new song is whose:

Bonne Nuit - Hawkeye (Bonne Nuit means "Good Night," for those who are wondering!)
Inochi ~Mei~ - Mustang (I have no idea what that means...LOL)
Look up the sky - Winry
Determination - Edward

Just looked up Roy's song title for the heck of it. Apparently Inochi is 'life' while Mei can actually have different meanings when paired with kanji. Hopefully someone can give us a better translation.

Both "inochi" and "mei" (by itself) mean 'life' in Japanese. ohmy.gif Sounds like it'll be epic!
Er, that is, the single kanji for "mei" means life.


Welcome to the Royai thread, brotchen! smile.gif

I think he knew what was coming before she showed him, yes. I think he was probably a little shocked by the scale, and that someone would actually do that-- but not enough to register an outburst. (Alternately, he may have reacted more, and we just didn't see it.)

Yeah, and he's probably already seen his share of horrors in the military. I'd like to think that the reaction was off-screen though smile.gif

Turdaewen
I didn't think Roy was not giving a reaction to the tatoo. Xd quite the contrary: THAT was his reaction: getting 'frozen'. He didn't move a muscle.
That's something more realistic, cause responding to shock isn't always being noisy, or showing expressions. Most of the time, it takes time to process information.

Now that you say it, I agree. If he was too exaggerated it might've come off as cheesy or fake. Maybe if his eyes had widened a little at least... or he'd twitched. Hahaha, now I'm just getting picky!

Mmm, but it would have been nice if we'd seen a close up of his face, to properly see his reaction, (or lack there of). Maybe just like a step back...
But yes, on the whole, I agree; personally, I freeze when I see/hear something shocking, then I explode with 'WHAT? Nooo!!'

I'm thinking more like this:

Roy (upon seeing Riza's tattoo for the first time): *thinks* Oh wow... that's really beauti..fu- *FREEZES* SHE'S NOT WEARING A BRA! SHE'S SHOWING ME HER NAKED BACK! MUST RESIST NOT TOUCHING OR WILL POTENTIALLY DIE...

Roy's actual reaction: *stands silently to process information and out of fear of getting hurt*

wink.gif
IceSkadi
Roy's actual reaction to Riza's naked back:

"HYDROGEN, HELIUM,LITHIUM,BERYLLIUM,SODIUM,OMG,MAGNESIUM,POTASSIUM,CALCIUM (etc...)"





Ok it's a bad joke, but it's the first thing that I thought after seeing that scene tongue.gif

Tbh I think a male perspective on this is the most accurate. laugh.gif
amestris_star
^ Well considering that Kale's male... that's what you got tongue.gif

And you all know Roy wasn't actually thinking at all when he saw that wink.gif
Turdaewen
Yeah... considering this is Roy we're talking about... yeah.... that's probably about right. XD
jacksparrow589
Tian Ai--Part 6 made me smile! smile.gif

Kale--laugh.gif I can totally see Roy having that sort of reaction, but just being frozen (as Turdaewen said) for whatever reason seems the most likely at this point.

IceSkadi--Ed and Roy are similar in some ways. I wouldn't be surprised! biggrin.gif (Hey, I go through similar lists when I'm anxious!)

I dunno... being female, my reaction was more, "Why is she wandering around bra-less? That's downright uncomfortable!"

Now I'm wondering what that would have been like if it was Roy who had the tattoo and Riza who was studying alchemy... I can just see Roy being all manly about having a tattoo. And that's leading to an Armstrong-esque ripping off of the shirt, complete with sparkles, and Riza just going, "Oh dear God, why am I stuck with this guy?"

Considering how everyone was fangirling at Roy's abs during ep. 19, I guess he's more than justified in pulling an Armstrong and stripping his shirt off at will. But if he were to have the tattoo and Riza the alchemist? I think Roy would probably be as he actually is - modest.

While chatting with amestris_star yesterday, I'd made the comment of how often Ed and Alex will go shirtless while Roy doesn't (the partial exception being during his fight with Lust and even then, he was still fully-clothed). The thing I've noticed is that save for that one moment, he's always covered up. Now, that's probably due to him presenting himself as a proper gentleman and whatnot, but still, even when in the hospital recovering, he still would cover up.

So again, if Roy were to hypothetically have the tattoo - despite having a body that would easily compliment it - he'd probably still hide it out of both modesty...and perhaps shame. For all his bravado, Roy's not really one to show off like that, and he probably isn't really comfortable in doing as such anyways.
jacksparrow589
^True, very true. That was more me being a crazy Roy fangirl than anything, but I can see Roy being just a little less modest than Riza. It's just that when I thought about it, it was so ridiculous that my crack idea was the first thing that came to mind.

Nah, I totally get what you were saying...just that my mind couldn't quite jump to that thought. Riza being more like Olivier is much more plausible in my mind than Roy being like Alex. wink.gif
jacksparrow589
^Well, we all have our (not-so-)little fantasies, don't we? Roy in a miniskirt, anyone? tongue.gif I'm pretty sure that that was what got me through that month.

Although, I must admit that (on the fly, at least) I can come up with more similarities between Riza and Olivier than between Roy and Alex.

Or she was planning on seducing Roy with the jiggling all along. >.>
Hagaren_4ever
^LOL The same "why no bra?" question popped in my mind too. Although when i tried to imagine the same scene with her trying to unhook the damn thing I came to the conclusion that I should just do what I've done with dozens of other FMA scenes. Just accept it. laugh.gif
I was actually sort of hoping that Bones would show Roy burning Riza's back. How do you think that scene would look?

Roy: *gawks at Riza's response regarding the tattoo* Yo-you mean I have permission to touch you?! YES! I've only wanted to do this since the last time I accidentally opened the door to the bathroom to fix that squeeky hinge while you were showering... I-I mean, I'm only doing this for scientific research purposes and the good of the people - yeah.
StormGoddess
Roy's lack of reaction was probably because he was waiting for Riza to take off her skirt too lololol just kidding. But judging by the distance, I think she already told him earlier. I mean, he's quite far that he can't reach her with his hand. If he didn't know, he'd be like standing next to her or just a step behind her.
Katya Martin
I think if anything, Roy'd actually be angry (at Hawkeye-sensei) at first-- that had to have hurt tremendously, and I doubt he'd like the fact that Riza had been hurt so much just to become secure file storage.

@Actually showing the burning? Well, on the one hand, it'd be all angsty and such, which would get fan attention... but burns are incredibly ugly injuries, so I don't see how they could show it without it getting really squicky. The recovery period, on the other hand, could be good for some drama.
angelofsarcasm89
I'd like to see the burning scene if they did it well. Like, we see her taking off her shirt and him pulling on the glove, but then it cuts away to the wall or something and we just hear him snapping and her crying out. And then it switches to him taking care of her and wrapping her bandages and things like that.

Yeah, I'd pretty much die and go to fangirl heaven.
Kale Mustang
Oh and another thing I saw while watching ep. 54 with amestris_star, though I didn't notice it while i was fighting with my comp during playback, they totally kept my 'Riza drawing both her guns booty shot'! biggrin.gif

For those who are wondering what I mean, this is the shot in question:
FMAobsessed
Episode 53 and 54 were amazing. I thought the "burn my back scene" fitted in just fine in episode 54. It felt like a long wait though.

Anyone else think that Roy was a tad angry in those episodes? XD

I noticed. They weren't gonna just pass up a good chance for some fanservice.

Speaking of that, I rewatched the episode where Barry tries to attack Riza and noticed that there's some...jiggling...when she shoots at him. Clearly, the animators are trying to show that she doesn't wear a bra.

...God bless you, BONES. tongue.gif

Plus, no bra lines, she wears quite the tight shirt

With well endowed women, there's almost always a jiggle.can't believe we're actually having a conversation about boobs...


Well, back to Roy's lack of reaction.

Not only is there a half-naked Riza in front of him, but he's probably being torn between feeling disgusted at the lengths her father went through to "protect" his research and complete and utter fascination for what the tattoo means.

He went back to his teacher only to have his hopes and dreams crushed when the man died before his very eyes, and days later he finds out that he still has a chance to make achieve his goals. Shock enough for anyone.

I imagine they must get in the way a lot, with being in the military and all.
So if Havoc is a boob-guy... is Mustang? wink.gif

Speaking of which, I'm curious as to how far Mustang's womanizing actually goes.
I suppose Riza's mature and loyal enough not to show her irritation, but did he really like... sleep around East City?

No no no, Mustang is a leg man. cool.gif
About the womanising... hm I'm not sure. Since he can't have Riza because of the position they're in (umm, ahem) I can see him doing what any other man would do to satiate his needs. I was going to say I'd hope Riza was able to meet other men, but there's the whole issue of the tattoo and realistically I think it's too risky. She might date, but I don't imagine it gets very far. In an ideal world I'd like to think that if they love each other, they wouldn't see anyone else in the meantime. But their situation is so different to anything we would experience that it's hard to say what their stance is on this.

So yeah, I can see Roy seeing other women. I suppose if he has all these women fawning over him, a regular man wouldn't say no. laugh.gif Although Roy is certainly more of a gentleman than any man I've ever met... dry.gif
angelofsarcasm89
I like to think that at least 99% of his dates are just for information gathering and to keep up appearances. When you think about it, most of Christmas' girls are probably more like family to him and he doesn't see them like that. And I thinkRoy would probably encourage Riza to go out and enjoy herself and maybe even find someone who doesn't constantly put her life in danger.
I read a fic once, that for the life of me I can't remember the name of, that described how I think it goes with them well. Basically, they were both feeling like "We love each other too much for something like a play date to really mess us up, but I still don't really like it. I'm not jealous because I feel threatened, it's because your dates can be affectionate with you in public and could give you the relationship you deserve."

Of course, my optimal scenario here is that all his dates are just for show and they manage to get together with some help from their friends. I could imagine Grumman pulling a "You should go out on a date with my granddaughter! Oh yeah, I "forgot" to mention that you already know her! Isn't that funny!" trick to get them out together. Actually, I could see Grumman encouraging them like crazy and making excuses for them.

"Mustang, so nice of you to come have dinner with us! Oops, I completely forgot that I have some official business to take care of tonight. No, you two stay here and finish your food. And I hope you don't mind the dim lighting and the candles everywhere, the electricity seems to have gone out. Feel free to help yourselves to my fine wine and chocolate strawberries, I don't want them to go to waste. I'll be gone for awhile, so if you get tired the guest bedroom is just right upstairs. Okay, you two have fun! laugh.gif "


...I should really get more than three hours of sleep a night.
SneakyRuler
I think Riza told Roy beforhand that she'd show him a tattoo on her back... doesn't mean he was not shocked because obviously he was. When taking off her jacket there's nothing underneath, meaning she had to undress her bra and her shirt before and thn put on her jacket for modesty sake, called Roy in, turned her back to him...

Evidence: her father's funeral, Riza in two layers of clothing the least.



Roy dating in Eastern City? I believe he did. Why wouldn't he? It's not like he'd already confessed to Riza and had babies with her. If a male officer as young, popular and handsome as he is doesn't enjoy company of beautiful women it can mean only two things. One - he's taken, two - he's gay. Neither serves his image right.

Mhm, my sister-in-law was on a special ops force(retired, last year) in the military and always complained that the military refused to acknowledge that woman have boobs. So, all of her gear was always tight in that particular area.

Apparently bras don't exist in the FMA world. When Winry was shown undressing, she didn't have one, Lust obviously doesn't wear one, and... I can't think of anymore instinces where you can tell, because FMA isn't a fanservice anime, but you get what I mean. XD

angelofsarcasm - Woah, great viewpoint, it's very realistic. I suppose our stressed-out Colonel needs some form of relief from all the craziness that goes on in the FMA world.
And I love that concept that the fanfic expresses - I think it's spot on. With the way their personalities are (especially Roy's), I definitely see him thinking along the lines of, 'I don't deserve her'.

I can see why you'd think that, it's probably the viewpoint of most people. She doesn't seem like the type to go for just any man, but I do believe she dates. Or at least I hope she does. Waiting on the man you love is romantic, but can only get you so far, you end up needing to satisfy yourself of the things you can't get from that person, even if it's just a bit of affection from a few dates.

They both understand each other, they have to, or else a relationship could never work between them. Even in their situation, neither person can possibly expect the other to remain single all their military life. smile.gif


About bras, well, this was the 1900's/10's, which was around the time when corsets etc were still quite popular, if we're basing their world on ours. Correct me if I'm wrong, I know that corsets began to decrease in popularity around this time. They certainly wouldn't have had anything like we do today. The military women probably have to make do with camisoles or something similar...

@ Kale : man, I loled so hard reading your comments about Roy's reaction.. yeah, that might be one of the reactions he might did.
she wears no bra! she wears no bra! ._. that's gping to be uncomfortable. except if she did use it and open it also with her blouse and use her coat and tell roy to come in? somewhat like that?

@_@ and we do all these bra and boobs conversation
about that, I aggree with Hagaren_4ever , that bras don't exist in FMA world. OwO imagine that. Riza, Winry (I just realized that she doesnt wear a bra! wth) wink.gif and ofcourse Lust. but it's 1914.. they should have invented bras. ==''

@Tian Ai : mustang is a leg woman laugh.gif when king bradley is a butt-woman, if i recall O__o i wonder does Riza have nicely shaped legs.

this thing spinning in my head last night: yeah. MAAAAN I WANT THE BURN BACK SCENE SO HARD ; A ; aaa TTwTT I mean, after he burned her back, he couldn't be just left her alone and told her to take care of her wounds by herself!! =A= Roy is a gentlemen, he might go taking care of her first, I mean, it's BURNED.
hmm.. did riza cried when roy burn her back? ' w '
what would he do after all those wound-caring? hohooho (if you know what i mean) *slapped*

i just have the feeling that the scene would be there because of this:
it's the same pose when she exposed her back to roy, that's what I mean biggrin.gif
StormGoddess
LOL this talk about Riza's body and bras make me question my gender. laugh.gif

I know you guys have seen this, it's some proof that they don't wear it XD XD XD

About Riza dating someone, I'm not sure. Before and after Ishval she seems like an admirable woman, but it looks like she doesn't think about relationships with men that much. I think it's possible in Anime1 though.

About Riza: First, it makes no sense her using no bra. I mean, she's in her late 20's, so there's NO way she would look like she does without bra. I mean, unless she put some silicone... NO. Gravity is cruel, my friends XD lol If she was Winry's age, ok, but being around 27... no way... XD They do it only for 'visual' aspects. XD
But she's not only well endowed, she's very... curveous woman. She does work out a lot, so... it makes sense.

About Roy, he's definitely a "thigh" man XD He said so himself. XD

And about Roy dating many women, I really don't think so. He may have a few dates, but I don't think it's out of the ordinary. From the way he usually acts around people, it seems as if he's only someone who likes to flirt, but not someone who actually has time for that sort of thing. I mean, we don't see him in a single date the entire series, and, when we do, it's always a cover up. Just like Ed, Roy likes to think of himself as a Ladies' man, but I really cannot picture that being actually true, from the rest of his traits. He really doesn't fit the womanizer profile. But he sure has fun pretending to be.

And about the burning the back scene, I would definitely NOT want to see it. It's too damn sadistic for my taste. I mean, it's not because something happened that we actually have to watch it.
And I don't picture it at all as being a 'sweet' or romantic moment whatsoever. lol Even because, not only of 'kiwiness' do we live. XD

absolutely. she's a mature woman, and she couldn't be walking around everywhere and fighting with no bra -.- that would be weird.
oh yes, i was wrong, he's a thigh man, not a leg man biggrin.gif GYAHAHHA

yes, that's also what i think. he has no dates, just some information sources that is LOOKS like his dates or such. -w- he's a womanizer, yes, but not the type that loves to play women XD
Kale Mustang
Wow, quite the anatomy discussion we're having, hmm? tongue.gif Personally, I always stare at Riza's thighs (the skirt she wore when confronted by Barry *drools*) and her butt (as seen above); her boobs...I notice because they're just there.

Anyways, I think with Riza's uniform shirt, there might be hidden support for it - it's tight enough so maybe it's like a camisole? But for going out in public, she probably wears one (during that shot her bra might've been black and releases in the front so it fell with her blouse) as I doubt she'd go out without one. Besides, woman can still wear a bra and have that 'jiggle'.

The burning of the back scene... I have mixed feelings about it. One one hand, it's just cruel and painful to watch - as seeing human flesh burned is really disturbing (the bistering and peeling...ugh). On the other hand, the potential for them to practically re-learn how to live normal lives once again within the civillian population while healing together? It's something that I wouldn't mind seeing told.
shanryelric
^ oh I always that scene when she pulled her gun from her skirt and I noticed that her skirt button on the thigh is opened @__@ she looks so sexy *w*

maybe she wears something so thin? I mean if we look again, yeah, there's no bra lines even when she wears tight clothes.
wait, that means the same thing happened to OLIVIER?? O____O

well don;t show when he practically burned her. so just like the sounds? still scary -,- but I realy want it TT.TT
Turdaewen
It's not that I wouldn't like it being told, but I don't see it in the least as a 'romantic' scene! I just can't picture myself looking at that scene and going "How cute they're together!" O.o
One of the things I like more about Royai is precisely because they're a very natural, real looking couple, with no exaggerations. They act like a real, adult couple, not an 'anime couple', if you know what I mean. So, not every scene they have together will be an 'ode to Royai' or even have a romantic edge to it. It's just like wanting Ed to kiss Winry when she was talking to scar in the mines... It's just not the time nor the place for that sort of thing!!

And about the uniform, I just think they do that because bra's are a little hard to 'draw' and still be visually good. Drawing a bra always seems a little... Hentai?? lol
So, I don't think Arakawa actually cared enough to pay attention to 'such a small detail', as she herself would probably say. Which doesn't mean the women in FMA don't wear bras. XD

And, Kale, you don't have to apologize for looking at Riza's legs, butt or boobs... XD she's a beautiful woman! (in my pov, the prettiest woman in FMA aside from Lust) It would be hard for a man NOT to look. XD
Animeoldtimer
I think that braless picture with Riza is just for show, it also could be a pajama shirt she's wearing.---Maybe Roy gave her one of his shirts after 'burning her back' and she likes to wear it for pajamas as a reminder.

Also, isn't the shirt under the uniform black, right?

I think this would be good, even though we're most likely not going to see it (unless, perhaps, there's a gaiden/OVA?).

Regarding Roy dating around: I think he certainly did. Sleeping around? No. His career depends on people thinking he's a womanizing, lazy jerk, so that they don't take him seriously enough to work out what he's up to. I think his dating is maybe six parts keeping up appearances, three parts information gathering, and one part messing with Havoc. (Right, that last wasn't entirely serious. biggrin.gif )

I think Riza probably didn't date (not much, at least.) She's just too work-centered for it.

Re the other Riza question:

Not necessarily, she looks like she just woke up there. At work, she most likely does wear a bra: gravity/pain/suffering/etc. I mean, she spends the days running and shooting things. And running some more. (And tripping the Colonel.) That specific scene may have just been for convenience (it would have obscured part of the tattoo).

OwO NICE THINKING!! could be so. yeah, but does roy ever wear pajamas? o__O

and maybe not a burn the back scene, but just a gaiden about when it starts (with SFX, etc (not with scenes)), and how the wound heals together with the end of the war thingie (???) something like that, yes.

Haha! With this conversation, I was going to say that there's more guys in this forum, but when I look at the members' gender, it's nearly just female! XD

In the first anime, the shirt was almost a brown color. In Brotherhood, it's black.

Wow... two pages I had to plow through to get here! You guys are crazy! (Yes, yes, so am I.)

Kale--I must say that I find it amusing that you of all the people on here didn't catch the booty shot in 54 the first time. tongue.gif Seriously, though, it's not like Arakawa's trying to hide Riza's curves at all. I swear, every chance she gets... (And as a girl, I'm forever sighing about why I can't look like that. I mean, I know she's really physically active compared to me, but there's also just plain differences in body types... and this is going OT, so I'll stop there.)

I think it's pretty much been determined that Riza wears some sort of support most of the time... Let's see... what else is there to talk about? *runs down the last two pages again*

Roy's dates: Information gathering. Doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy it, but I'm totally for the idea of info-gathering, since every single time we see him out or pretty much even just flirting, he's gathering info. I doubt he sleeps around, too. Didn't we have some sort of discussion about him being a gentleman about seeing Riza's back? I know people can change, but Roy seems to be very upstanding. (Though I think one of his reasons for gathering info the way he does is to mess with Havoc, Katya. I'm sure he could do it some other way, but it's far more enjoyable the way he does.)

I can actually see Riza going out on a date or two--it's not like she has no life whatsoever. She's just busy a lot of the time, and then she gets Hayate... Well, I like to think Roy shows up every so often just to surprise her, but that might just be me.

Anything else?

Hmmm... I'd really want to see Riza healing after Roy burns her back. That would totally make for some prime Royai angst! (Oh, why did I use "prime"? Now I'm thinking of Roy and Havoc in the hospital: "You got off medium-rare! I'm well-done!")

shanryelric--I'm pretty sure anyone would cry (at the very least) after having their back burned that extensively. Heck, people even go into shock, get sick, and pass out. I tend to wonder if Roy had someone on hand (say, Knox, though that's not at all likely) to help just in case things went wrong. Roy's not a doctor, after all.
hand-made-city
OMG you guys, this conversation. XD Can't believe there's already 2 pages of it! Hahaha! I love you all.

Err.. well here's a bit of feminine advice (lol anime1 reference), women don't/can't wear a bra with every top they wear.. On some tops you'd be able to see the bra straps, which is not good. But yeah, I'd like to avoid that conversation, since I think you guys have already discussed it plenty! lol!

As for dating... hmm... Roy I could see going out with a woman every once in a while, but nothing major. Probably wouldn't sleep with her either. He's not like that. Riza is more reserved and way too dedicated to Roy's goal to think about herself and dating other men. She hasn't even unpacked her belongings in her apartment, so how would she have time to date? I'd like to think that she at least went out and enjoyed herself sometimes, but I honestly don't think it would happen very often.
