waaaah! Kasumi, can you please tell us what really happened in the 13th warehouse on novel 1? you said roy was actually afraid so i'm pretty sure that it's not quite the same as the anime version.
wheee, thanks for the pics everyone!
The general storyline is the same, with Falman and Fury hearing "strange" noises and freaking out.
The differences in the novel is that Fury was absolutely terrified. And Roy and co. are going to investigate mostly because they pitied Fury. So, at 1:00am, they go to the warehouses. Havoc, originally in front of everyone, pushes Roy to take the lead saying "Subordinates aren't supposed to be in front of their superiors."
Roy wasn't all too happy about that.
Anyway, everyone practically clings onto Roy as the make their way to the "13th warehouse."
After being terrified for a little while, everyone realizes that they have hit the bottom of their fears, and therefore relaxes a bit. (Roy thinks to himself about how there are no boundaries to fear, but shoves the thought aside. The proves that Roy, himself, is quite anxious about this whole thing.)
Falman starts telling ghost stories at this point, hoping to get out of their fears. (How does telling ghost stories help people become less scared?)
Then, like in the anime, Roy notices a few bones beside the 12th warehouse. But Roy does not stay logical like they way he did in the anime. He starts believing that this ghost does exist and is trying to find its bones.
The next day, Roy spends 100,000 cenz on different flowers hoping the ghost would rest in peace. (this has something to do with Falman's ghost story about a ghost haunting her husband because her husband never bought her the right flowers after death)
Everything was kept from Hawkeye, because he didn't want to be yelled at by her.
And the novel ends with everyone finding out it was Hayate who buried those bones, and that Roy had wasted 100,000 cenz. Roy wants his subordinates to pay him back, but even after weeks, not a single cenz was given to him.
And that's where it ends.
That's the general overview of what happened.
By the way, I really suggest everyone to get the second novel when it is released by VIZ. The ending was so royai!
There's a part where Roy pulls Riza behind him, in an attempt to protect her (but Ed comes to the rescue.) Riza later thanks Roy for protecting her (or attempting to)... *was killed by that scene*
That scene made me love royai more than I already do... If that's possible. XD
