Monologue in manga or either anime?  
 Hello there! Sorry if this isn't allowed, please feel free to delete this! 

So I need a monologue memorized to perform for my theater and acting class. We can do anything, as long as it's school appropriate, and I would love to do something from FMA - manga or either anime. I searched everywhere for something, but couldn't really find much. I even re-read a bunch of chapters and re-watched some episodes. So I was wondering if any of you guys knew of  any monologues by anyone anywhere in the FMA series.  I also need this done and memorized by tomorrow, thanks to my wonderful procrastination skills, so nothing too long. XD Please just let me know the chapter or episode and where. :)

Thanks in advance! <3

The only one that comes to mind is Ed's monologue's to Rose in the first two episodes of the anime and his short monologue to Greed in Theory of Avarice about carbon.

Those were my first thoughts too! But now I like that I have a second opinion. :) Thanks!

P.S., I love your icon. 8D

Ed has sort of a monologue at the end of the Barry the Butcher arc, doesn't he? Between him and Al, about not being gods?

If you don't find anything from FMA that satisfies you, I'd recommend this monologue from Haruhi Suzumiya, it's great.

I think the Haruhi monologue would be quite epic of a choice for your particular needs.

I absolutely love Haruhi Suzumiya and I can't believe that I forgot about that monologue! :o Thanks for reminding me about that, it would be totally awesome to do. :)

I'm thinking about what Ed says after Nina dies, in the manga. Ed also talks a lot about alchemy in Gluttony's stomach, and there might be something useful when Ed and Al talk on the staircase (before Winry mentions Ed's back looks bigger) about getting their bodies back. Multiple characters in multiple fights babble a lot, too, XD.

That's all I can name off the top of my head... good luck!

Thanks! The more ideas I can get, the better. :D And it would be really fun to do a whole thing about alchemy... haha so many epic scenes to choose from...

Ed's monologue to Greed from chapter 28.
moyrustangmoyrustang on March 18th, 2010 11:52 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, I absolutely love that whole scene, but I forgot about that monologue! :) Thanks!

Besides of that one, I reccomend Olivier's monologues from chapter 65. XD
moyrustangmoyrustang on March 19th, 2010 12:04 am (UTC)
I love that chapter and Olivier in general! XD I wish I could do more than one monologue now, there's so many good ones that I wanna do! Thanks again! :)

Ahh, we just did this in my drama class too...so let me see...

-There's Roy's monologue from Ishval/After Riza's father dies, when he's talking about his dreams for the future.

-Ed's bit to Rose at the beginning of course.

-Al when he's wondering about his existence after encountering Barry the Chopper.

-Ed after finding Maria Ross in the ruins of Xerxes and Breda asks him what he's going to do next.

-Ed's explanation of 'One is All, All is One' in the flashback of Izumi teaching them.

-A rant from Greed- either the old one when he's introducing himself, or after GreeLing kills Bido and Ling yells at Greed for it.

-Riza telling Winry about having to shoot people, how joining the military will be Ed and Al's decision, and why she joined the military.

-Ed's speech when he tries to quit being a state alchemist, before Bradley takes Winry as a hostage.

-Riza, talking about the war in Ishval.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head without consulting my volumes...if you need specific places let me know! Hope this helps. :)

Wow, thanks so much! :) This gave me so many ideas that now I can't decide what I should do... XD But that's a good thing because I'm the type that will pick one, start it, then want a new one, so I like to have a lot of ideas and options. :D Thanks!

If you're not particular which anime, there was this wonderful monologue Ed did near the end of the first anime. It was the episode "Farewell" (Sayonara) where he's talking to Roy as Hawkeye is driving Roy to Bradley's mansion.
moyrustangmoyrustang on March 18th, 2010 11:57 pm (UTC)
Ahh, this is actually probably one of my top choices now! Thanks! I absolutely adored that scene. :)

*grins* It's one of my favorite scenes from the first anime. It's so eloquent and moving, especially coming from Ed.

Good luck with whatever monologue you choose!
moyrustangmoyrustang on March 19th, 2010 10:45 am (UTC)
I agree! & Thanks, I think I'm doing the one Al says at the very end of the first anime, the one about equivalent exchange and the promise to see his brother again. :) I wish I could do more than one, there's so many that I wanted to do! XD

Chapter 95
Depending on how long your monologue needs to be--there are some pretty good speeches in Chapter 95. Roy, Envy, and Ed each have one. Envy's, of course, is pretty demented. Ed's is beautiful, though, as he talks about why Envy envies pathetic, weak humans.

There are also the monologues from Scar's brother and his teacher, about someone having to break the chain of hatred. Those are some good speeches, though not particularly lengthy if memory serves.

Re: Chapter 95
Thanks, I did look into those as some of my first choices, but they were just a bit too short. :( They were awesome though, and I really appreciate your help! :)

Recite the basic chemical ingredients of an average human body! 8D This was shown in both FMA animes, and in the manga too. I like when Ed mentioned how all of it could be brought on a kid's allowance.

I don't know if it's long enough for a monologue though, since I can't recall it that much.
