~ Chapter 62 Manga Spoiler Party Thread!, Beyond the dream! ~
Since I just download'd and read it (at work, but I certainly couldn't wait), I thought I'd start this one masel this time.
So, after the badass (north-themed!) cover, what do we have?
Some ethical discussion involving Ed and Riza, no can quite understand... (and will wait till scanlation to read it in English, to make it more enjoyable)
With Ed telling Riza that they should seek their own happiness too, not only the next generation's whatsoever, and Riza telling Ed that there's surely many people who want to see the brothers with their bodies back (how nice)
Al (successfully) picking on Mei! XDD "I'm taller than my brother!" "And I have a gentle face!" "And I have golden short hair!" "And I'm better at fighting than my brother, but I'm not as much short-tempered! I'm more of a gentleman (sic)!"
LOLness. Certainly after the Ishval chapters, the hilariousness is certainly welcome back...
Afterwards, Ed and Al... eh.. in Spanish we say "haciendo puesta en común"... telling each other what they have learnt, that'd be it
Al remembers about the apple pie! (since I just got volumes 11-14, I'm rereading the whole manga, and all those flashback scenes et al in this chapter were really fresh to me. Nice!)
They decide, then, to have a chat with Mei Chang (mame onna - bean girl Ed keeps calling her XD), no surprises here.
Scar doesn't kill Marcoh! ("like I'd let you get get away by just mercifully killing you!" ph33r teh scarman!) Also quite expected. Instead he told him about that "sth strange about this country's alchemy" line, and asked him to read some part of his brother's reasearch notes that he couldn't understand. yay!
Scar: "We're going away, so get nekkid"
Marcoh: "Eh?!"} (ºAº )
And they get away from there "with a VENGEANCE" (LOL)
Envy is fooled by Scar's plan, but Daddy is not.
Mei Chang is a little naive/stupid, ain't she?
Knox: "What are you doing going around with a serial killer?!"} \(`A´ )/
Mei: "Isn't he a good person?"} (·_. )
Ed talks about using his State Alchemist privileges to find Mei... and a reference to that old yonkoma "then what is all this "money and power" good for, eh?"
Al: "But the hommunculi will notice"
Ed: "Oh, you're rite. As expected from you Al, always calm-minded"
Al: "Of course, Im cooler than you"
(Now, now, isn't Al getting kind of rebel as of late?)
Mei Chang is told about Marcoh making Philosopher's Stones and she pulls a Ling: "Immortality?!" XD
Marcoh: "It could get troublesome if military people recognise me" (note: he doesn't actually say that. In fact, he says nothing before....)
Scar: "here, lemme help you" *splorch*
"Mei, stop his bleeding, but leave him faceless..."
ph33r teh Scar indeed. Poor, poor Marcoh
And the most important revelation on this chapter?!
Scar: "We're going"
Yoki: "where to?"
Scar: "Where I hid my brother's research notes."
Yoki: "And where would that be?"
(Do I see a pattern here?
And, to finish, military-team touching farewells
and an unexpected ally! Also, we get to see where did Roy get his "disguise everything I do as ladies' man actions" tactics come from! O_O
Come to think of it, when Roy went to Central he thanked the old man Grumman for all that he taught him... Now we see it was certainly NOT a retorical phrase...
EDIT: Oh, and on the last panel, LOL @ Ed's POV...
But for some reason this chapter felt kind of short... ME WANT MOAR!!
EDIT2: Renamed it "Beyond the dream" as per CSakuraS translation. "After" sounded kinda wrong...
