Hello~ I recently received my Perfect Guidebook in the mail. I'm still trying to decipher it. Anyway, this is a comic on the back of the book. Can anyone translate it? (I apologize for the cruddy scan -__-) Thanks~

"The manga that talks about itself under the cover"
Narration: Fullmetal Alchemist is a shounen manga.
Al: But we don't seem to have a lot of that "shounen" essence...

Al: ...like "effort"
Ed: Haven't made any of that, I've been level 100 from the start.
Al: "Friendship" ...but we don't have many friends.
Ed: ...don't say that.
Al: "Allies?"
Ed: Buncha old men...
Al: "A cool protagonist"...you have a pug-nose face---

Ed: Ha! Hard work and friendship are the little things! I'd say I'm overflowing with charms a normal kid doesn't have!
Al: What!? What are they!?

Ed: MONEY and POWER. (Little banner underneath him: "National Alchemist")
Al: What a horrible manga. (You're supposed to say "brotherly love.")

That bit about Ed being level 100 IS because lots of shounen manga are like RPG games XB This is HILARIOUS. Thank you for scanning it.
