Do you think that Arakawa-sensei loves playing with our perverted minds when it is about Roy and Riza? Or that she just draws scenes and that we are so crazy about Royai that sometimes, when there is nothing, we manage to find something.
For me, Royai is obvious in the manga, but I would have really liked to be in her mind when she drew the scene with the car! Do you think that she drew that scene thinking : “There you go Roy and Riza fans! A scene in a car just for you! Imagine what you want”.
Maybe she just thought “Errr…I don’t have enough pages to make the colonel and his lieutenant go to their respective houses and change…oh well…nevermind! Let’s draw the scene in a car! It will be easier for me”
I do believe that she drew that on purpose just for us, Royai fans! But maybe my mind is to perverted.
I repeat that I’m a Royai fan and that for me, it is obvious that there is something between them. There are so many scenes in the different chapters where we see that Roy cares about Riza and that she cares about him, and she, in the last one, wants to stay (again!) in case he has a problem.
I was just wondering if sometimes, we were finding Royai scenes were there were not (when I saw our reactions about that scene “ They changed in the same car!”), and if Arakawa-sensei was really expecting our kind of reactions when she was drawing.
For me, the scene after they get out of the car has more Royai than the one were they change. In the car, they are in a hurry, Roy is hurt, so I don’t think that they really are in the mood of thinking of anything else. When they are out of the car, she tells him that she can’t leave him and that she will wait. In the car, they are focused on their goals, so there are no feelings, and out of the car, words are said and we know that they understand each other.
What do you think about what I wrote? I hope that I am clear enough…because it was not really easy for me to put my thoughts in English…
