Yey, gotta wonder who's in the side this time? I mean, I re-checked and, IIRC, no one died in these four chapters... Who am I missing? It shall be known soon.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww poor Ran Fan(so cute, hey I know when people are making fun of me stop it! Oh you aren't errrrrrrrrrrr my bad dry.gif ). Ling you kick ass. That is one awsome cover, thanks for posting it. That tiny hand of Ed is twice the size of Winry's hand biggrin.gif .

Aw, they put crying-Winry-with-a-gun-picture on the cover. Shouldn't she feel special? happy.gif

I love Scar's Bradley's reflecting eyes on Ling's sword. It's also sweet how Ran Fan and Ling are all cuddly. I feel another "Who's the best couple?" poll coming soon...

ne ne ne!!! i heared this month a new special volume was about to come out, and it had all the omake's plus more!!! Is it this??!! I want it!!! >.<

God, I already saw that cover but I can't get enough of it! XD I feel icons idea coming in my head! happy.gif;;

<off topic< Can someone tell me when the 'Book in Figure Black' comes out? Please. Pretty please? <off_topic<
Zyric
x3 So awesome! Much love for Arakawa.

Eeeeeeeeeee! *insert RanFan fangirl wibbling here*
Dark_Fishie
I think it's King Bradley's image reflected on Ling's sword, sans Eyepatch. Ling fights King Bradley in chapter 46, which should be in the volume. It's an awsome cover though - the darkest and bloodiest one yet.

Sensenic: You're right. blink.gif Who's gonna take that spot now? *is scared*

Cloud #1: I feel lonely...
Cloud #2: Hey, we can just take some random person down there! *grabs Edo*
Ed: Hey! What are you doing! I'm not dead!! *does clappy alchemy, falls, dies*
Cloud #1: Nice to see you again!
Ed: *shakes fist* Just wait till I sue you!
Al: *gazing up at the sky* Nii-san... YOU DITCHED ME! DIE!!!! Oh, right, you're already dead...
XD

Maybe it's an innocent bystander?

It`s a beautiful cover..too bad I don`t really like any of the characters on it.
GS4Life
What? CRAZY FOO! How do you not like Ling,Ran Fan,Winry,Wrath,Ed, or Scar? Is it even possible to dislike them(well except for when one is jealous of Winry over Ed but let's not go there now.)

Firstoff, I am not not not an Ed fangirl. I don`t really care much for Ed. I could care less about what happens to Winry, Ling, and Ran Fan. I am quite angry at Wrath at the moment, and Scar is just annoying.

My own opinions don`t make me a "crazy foo!".

Not to criticize you, but if you don't care about the characters why do you read the story? That doesn't make sense to me.

It also can be a character that died in the previous volume. (Like vol 4)
Or a random character. (Like vol 3)
Hmmmm..... what chapters are in vol 12?
Kynikos
Awesome! biggrin.gif I can't wait to read it...if I could that is =_=.

o.o Oh... what a lovely cover! Best I've seen so far..... X3

And that, my friends, was the intelligent post of the day... sleep.gif

It's true it's the best cover so far plus I changed my opinion of Ling and Lan Fan so I like it even more... ~_~
Tombow
Ohhhh, this is the best cover!!
I am a Ran Fan fan, and this is so cool!!
Aoko-chan
THATS A WONDERFUL COVER!!!!! I LOVE IT!!! (it meaning... Ling x Ranfan cover pic ^^;;) Too bad... there's only one part of Ed, ha..but its touka koukan for Ling x Ranfan ^^
Sensenic
EDIT: Forgot to comment: On second looks, I don't like Wrath's face in it... It's too wide... Can be the reflection in the sword, but he still looks "fatter" and uglier.
Other than this, still... [fanboy]OMFGG!!!!!!!!!11eleven[/fanboy]

About the chapters, no remember, will check at home (bored at work, now happy.gifU)...
EDIT: it's 46, 47, 48 and, guess what... 49. sleep.gifU

But, as for volume 4, the twins "died" in vol.4 IIRC, Vol 3 ends with Lust's "fingers" impaling the older brother, yes, but you could say the character itself, 48, died "completely" in vol. 4.
And the soldier was no random character, he was explicitly killed by Barry, and was the only (complete happy.gifU) death in that volume. Same as dun-remember-his-name The Silver Alchemist at the hands of Scar in Vol. 11. The fact that they were of (almost) no importance doesn't mean they were chosen at random, they were the only deaths shown in their respective volumes. But, as per vol. 12... as far as I can remember, will check at home too, no one died, explicitly or not. Nor in 13, which was complete with this one, if I'm not miscalculated (can perfectly be, tho' happy.gifU), now that I think of it...
EDIT: No it wasn't. Next one will finish Vol. 13.

Hmm.... Arakawa's going softer.... tongue.gif

Now that I think about it... it does make sense... and for the soldier one, what I meant was that a non important character got on it. (remember his quote? laugh.gif )

Everyone is getting excited about Ran Fan appearing on the cover. Ling and Ran Fan need the spotlight, since they didn't appear in the anime. biggrin.gif

p.s. THANX FOR THE CHAPTERS!
GS4Life
I wasn't being very serious, but I too wonder why you read the story if you don't like the characters, do too wonder why you read the story. The eliminations leave just about Al, Roy, Gluttony, Envy, and Riza left to like.

Anyways Ling and Ran Fan do indeed need more spotlight *rants about it*

Those aren`t the only characters in the story, you know. I usually like only a few characters from whatever anime or manga I`m interested in, and none of the characters on the cover are the ones that keep me interested in FMA.

Is there a thread with all the cover scanlations around here?

This forum loads veeery slowly for me, so I'm asking before-hand ><

And this cover is really nice, but I like it better for the nice sum-up of the story, rather then just Ling and Ran Fan.. They make a cute couple I guess, and I really like Ling and Ran Fan, but I like other covers too. There's no BEST ONE EVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!111 for me. ;o

And I agree with AndroidLust, s/he has every right to disagree on liking certain characters or not, or liking the manga or not for certain reasons. I, for example, don't like FMA manga because of couples and all that shipping crap, I like it because of the story and the very well-made characters (Insert much much love for Arakawa-sensei here <333).

Obsessing over couples is, to me, a waste of time, since the only one that really got a saying is Arakawa-sensei, and no one can really do anything about it. =P
Nepharski
Certainly a far more detailed cover that usual. Very nice. I especially enjoy how Bradley is reflected in the sword.

I have a question: Is there a place where I can see the first 12 covers? I've only seen the first 7.

It might be the Silver Alchemist; I remember reading in this translation of an interview with Arakawa-sensei from ZOMGFTA that she was going more into his past later.

I like the canon couples of the FMA manga (Royai, Edwin, and now Lin & Ran Fan) but I do agree with this statement. That is sort of why I do love the FMA manga though because there isn't an overwhelming focus on romance, it's more subtle and in the background. And thank the gods there is no love triangles.

Not only covers, but inner covers, slips, omakes, gaidens, perfect guides...

Pasen y vean! The wonderful scanlating and compilating job done by Shirokage, armor-alchemist et al.

You could almost say the unofficial FMA.com scanlation group.

Indeed. Plus, it makes the fan enjoy less a chapter if the beloved two don't appear...

Another question tho' (not to you, but to everybody): If they're called EdWin, Ling x Ran Fan, etc. (also I've seen NaruSaku. SasuSaku, NaruHina, etc.).... Why Roy x Riza is called Royai? (I know it means "Roy love", mind you.) Been wondering about this for a while...

Yeah, yeah, I know. I meant his actual name, Jolliot Comanche, that was it. According to Arakawa sensei, out of sadic-weapon-making-and-fighting times the man is actually a really loving and caring grandpa... one never can tell, I guess tongue.gif

I've them all (Pokémon? wink.gif Eh.... Sorry sleep.gifU), I'll put the rest up when I have chance, if someone doesn't post 'em before, that is.

I found the last 3 volume covers, but there are two problems. One, they are very ruff because it was photocopied with the plastic thingy over it and some ad paper was inside it. Two, it's Korean...

Why not give it a try?

Oh, and one other request. No images necissary, but whose on all the spines? I don't mean the In Memorium, I mean the outside bind of the book. The first is Edward, second is Alphonse, and the third is Roy. I'm guessing four is Scar and five is Winry. I know that six is Izumi and that nine is Riza. But what about seven, eight, ten, eleven, and twelve? Again, no images needed...just names.
