The English Alchemist (Part V)  
Well, you're still showing interest, so I'm still scanning! Today's lesson is being taught by the lovely and talented Winry Rockbell, who seems determined to set the record straight on a few of her fandom issues. There is also a reasonable amount of fanboying--apparently the author considers her a close second to Riza. Since someone commented on it in the last post, THESE ARE SCANS OF AN ACTUAL OFFICIAL TEXTBOOK, not any attempt by me to write my own lessons. And they are hilarious. XD

(Once again, here is a SPOILER WARNING! This book draws on the ENTIRE SERIES for its examples, which means it is chockablock with spoilers. You have been warned.)

And so, without further ado, I bring you, scanned and translated where necessary...the fifth installment of The English Alchemist!

Winry's unintentional sex appeal is a sin.


Haha. These things are hilarious.

Her heart throbs when she sees a piece of good Automail, not Ed in his underwear.

......YAY XD

Winry's unintentional sex appeal is a sin.

Oh, is that in reference to that part in Episode 45? XD;;;

Ed's fans view Winry with neurotic hostility.

I just pictured a pack of rabid fangirls chasing after Winry, screaming things like, "BRAAAAAAINS! BURN THE AUTOMAIL HO!!!!" XDDD

I've seen it. -_-;; Well, not the chasing, but the comments? Much worse out there.

As someone from the Midwest, I must say that the thing Winry is wearing on page 3? Pretty sure that's not a parka. That's a sweatshirt. Parkas are fluffy, unsexy, and made for keeping people from freezing to death in January.

As a fellow Midwester (Hoosier, specifically... NW IN), I noticed that too... you'd think they knew what a proper parka was in Japan, most of the country gets similar weather to our particular part of the US

I looked at your user info and realized that we very close to each other. (I'm a Valparaiso brat.)

On second glance at the picture, I can see that she is wearing a hoodie. A zip up hoodie. Wow.

I love this book, and I love you. That's all I have to say. XD

The quote "Her heart throbs when she sees a piece of good Automail, not Ed in his underwear." is...well, all I have to say is The Judge has spoken: Automail PWNS Edward. Poor boy, better luck next year.

It seems as if they are aware of the Winry-bashing Ed fangirls. Dearie me...I wonder if they're more or less common in Japan. Hmm...

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Well, she's quite used to Ed in his underwear by now, isn't she? Considering the boy spends most of his time at the Rockbells' house wandering around in boxers... -_-;;

Whereas automail NEVER gets old! XD
