FMA Scans from Japanese magazine  
I was shopping around Mitzuwa today with my friend and by chance, I bought a magazine that came with a clear paper-protector thing with FMA people on it.

Here's a page I set up with big, high quality, scans of about every single FMA-related tidbit I could find (I can't read Japanese so the articles I decided to scan might or might not be related. XD;)


Fanarts, comics, sheetmusic, articles, etc. Enjoy, mes amis. Just don't hotlink; it uses bandwidth. And uh...I'd really like it if you ask me if you'd like something for a site or something. Most likely, I'll give an ok. I just like to know where the images are going.

One request: Can anyone translate/summerize a few things on there? I'd really like to know what the heck they're talking about Thanks! ^_^

I'll help summerize some of them... my jap sucks... @_@

number 8: *ed transmutes a bag of chocolates and gives it to roy.*
roy then says something like "well, it's somewhat homemade..."

number 24 left:
ed: I may be a dog of the military, but i will never trully sell my soul.
random person: so... have you sold your body!?
ed: ((>.< i can't read it... sorry...))
((can't read right...>.>))

sorry... i'm so useless... @.@

Re: mya~
Hey! You're better than I am! I can't read anything beyond "ah" and "no". XD;

Thanks so much! Don't apologize! I was really wondering what Roy was talking about...and why he was running away from a bag of chocolates. n.n

Yeah, some of the scans came out small or unreadable, dispite my trying to enlarge them. Too tired to enhance them at the moment.

Re: mya~
^^;; anyways, now i have some extra time, i'll look them over again.

number 16: pretty easy to get, I think the words are saying that roy are saying are "when are you going to grow up!?"

number 17: there's a show in japan in where the people say random facts, I'm not really sure how it works... but the drawing says "Full Metal can't do his hair, so he gets someone else to do" or something like that. -_-;; It's supposed to be a random fact. and they got 0 points for it.

number 22: ed "al? you didn't get anything right? here." <-short summering, can't see all the words.
al "nii-san... i can't eat it though..."
ed " that's alright, just take it."

right beside above: winry's reading a book on how to make chocolates. there's banging noises coming from the house, ed "what is she doing?"
al "I think she's making shoes (?)"

the fletcher one: ed "you can't go around stealing peoples name!"
bro (forgot his name) "then how about this?" *kisses ed*
bottom parts too blurred, I just see al going "nii-san!"

Hey, thanks for sharing the scans! ^__^ Sorry, but I can't read Japanese, otherwise I'd love to translate them for you.

But I was wondering, what Mitsuwa do you shop at??? I go to the one outside of Chicago. I'm wondering because I really want April's magazines, but usually they don't have them out until the first weekend of the month there - and I don't want to drive an hour and a half for the store not to have them. (like I did last month XD;; )

I go to the one near South Coast Plaza in....Santa Ana, CA....I think (amazing that I STILL never know which city it's in dispite its being a 20 minute drive..). So it's nowhere near Chicago. Meep. I hope you find what you want though! n.n;

I originally went to get FMA manga but they had sold out. WTF. First time I've been to a place where they actually sold out of everything of one series! I did see the TV guide there though. Would have gotten that if I hadn't already gotten it through Amazon.jp...

Yaaaah...that's no where near Chicago. ^_^;; And I wanted to get the FMA manga there too - but like you they had sold out and were getting another shipment in 3 days! I was disappointed to say the least. I'm thinking now of having them order it or just wait until ACen or Fanime. ^__^

Hmm... from what I can see they're mostly fanart. I don't care about fanart so I skipped to the important stuff.

You also included the sheet music to 'Tobira no mukou e'. Thanks for that! I've been looking for it. ^__^

And on some of the color pages, there are March 2004 'Character Rankings' for the most popular anime characters of all time. I'll just include the ones with FMA characters.

1. Edward Elric (up from 2)
3. Winry Rockbell (up from 18)
12. Roy Mustang (New Entry)
14. Riza Hawkeye (up from 29)

although I'm mildly disappointed Al's not in the listing.
