  • Mood: Relief
  • Listening to: Brotherhood's soundtrack
  • Drinking: Cafe au lait
Today I got "The soundtrack vol.1" and am listening to it!
It's soooo greaaaaat! :w00t:
There are a relatively high number of titles which are named with actual keywords of FMA and all in English in new soundtrack.
For example,
"Resembool", "Fifth Laboratory", "Central City", "One is all, all is one", "Lapis Philosophorum", "Next Chapter" and so on.

Well, finally I finished translating "questions and answers".
It's conversational, but please accept it's only contents because it's very long if translating everything. ^^;

Why is Edward growing his hair?

He left his hair until he got to be able to move automail's arm freely. And it's a pain to cut his hair, so he leaves his hair after all.

:Codicil: Ed says "I'll avouch I was never coordinating with an ass-wipe!" :XD:

Has Al ever thought "The good thing, I'm an armor's figure"?

It's to be able to protect someone. If the blood mark isn't even broken, he doesn't feel a pain and he is tough because of an armor.

:Codicil: Al says "The inside is wide, so I can place many cats in it." :XD:

Why is Hohenheim wearing glasses? He is the philosopher's stone, so he doesn't have bad eyesight, does he?

Let's just say that it's a disguise not to be mistaken to Father...Sorry, I have never thought the reason. ^^;

:Codicil: The answer is from Arakawa-san, and Ed is saying "Blah! It's presbyopic eye". :XD:

What's going on the other side of the truth's door?

There is a same body of an identical person who opened the door on the other side of the door. However, it's unsubstantial at first. And there isn't the soul of the dead on the other side of the door, then truth's task is to receive the body as the toll fees when the owner of the body will make back it alive. Also the truth is God's formulation, so it isn't free even if the owner of door is also an identical person. It's same as a document which is sold in bookstore just because the truth is unpurchasable.

Where is Mustang living in? And is the car military's?

Mustang's residence in Central is narrow rent residence, and there is about only sofa in his living room but the car is his own.

:Codicil: Mustang is saying "I have an earning capacity to own car". :XD:

How far did Mustang decipher the secret of Master Hawkeye?

Of course, he already completed to decipher all secrets, as a result, he worked out the transmutation circle which is written on his glove for himself. The pictorial cut on Hawkeye's back isn't equal to Mustang's circle, and the analysis of component in the atmosphere and how to coordinate concentration of oxygen, and various things were in the pictorial cut. Certainly if the glove gets wet, he can't use the way which burns the dust in the air, but it's possible to transform water into oxygen if the circle is kept.

How tight was Havoc going out with Solaris?

Maybe their relationship  wouldn't be tight so much because Havoc was telling to Falman that topic a little after Barry's affair and he didn't know her ouroboros' mark.
(It's written as Mustang team's guess. :XD:)

Tucker was doing research "Chimera which can understand human language" though, why could he pass the State Alchemist Trial?

Maybe he was ostensible authority figure who was selected to distract the attention of citizen from military's inhumane research, and to show that the skill is such a level even if State Alchemist.
(It's written as Mustang's guess.)

Do every Xing's loyalties carry panda's handkerchief?

May's model is Shao May, and Ling's is generic panda.

Why did Winry's parents go to Ishval?

At first scene of a battle was around Ishval, but the area  spread to East area little by little, then there was serious harm in front of station in Resembool which is the production area of wool for military. One day at this time, the military required to open the hospital in Ishval, and her parents went to Ishval with their will. East area is a countryside and there are originally few doctors, also especially maybe there wouldn't be decent hospitals in Ishval.

How did Havoc contact Ross?

They had a little chance to talk when they escaped. Havoc said to Ross "I don't know in detail, but now get away to survive if you aren't Hughes murderer. And support if Colonel would make things happen". And Breda and Fu asked for Han that Ross can contact to Havoc, and Havoc contacted Han with a reason to buy in Xing's imported goods.

What was Ross doing in Xing?

She was living in Yao family as a sponger by previous contact by Fu. Amestris and Xing have a diplomatic relations but actually it almost doesn't function. So Amestris' sponger was rare and the story quickly became known to the Emperor, then Yao family were allowed to meet the Emperor and Ross talked about Amestris. Naturally the other families harbor ill feelings against Yao family, then they plotted an assassination of the Emperor during meeting and tried to brand Yao family with infamy. But Ross instantaneously found and shot the assassin, then the Emperor graded up the rank of Yao family which invited Ross.

Is it necessary for Homunculi to eat and sleep?

It's unnecessary because Homunculi never die even if neither eating nor sleeping, but philosophy's stone is bootlessly used if doing so.
Thus they live in like a human as much as possible. Incidentally Marco's meal was brought from the military's diner, and Homunculi also ate as well.

It seems somewhat Selim can change his appearance about age though, can't he mutate?

Selim is simply container unlike Envy who can change an appearance freely, so it's only possible to make body height elasticized at the farthest.

Has Sloth's chain been worn since he was born?

Sloth's chain was worn after he was born. He was poor at coordination of speed by nature, so "Father" prepared the chain not to break the basement room immoderately.

How rude word did Bradley say when going on a date with his wife?

Father didn't think to make Bradley go through life and marry like a human. After the dating, he came to the basement room and said he made her angry and was slapped, then the other Homunculi burst into laughter. Also he was taught woman's mind from Lust, and Envy advised him "Praise an appearance". Afterwards he praised her bottie and unnecessary things, and he resulted being slapped again.

:Codicil: Envy seems to have ever followed to see the scene that Bradley was slapped. :XD:

That's it for the questions and answers. :D

Wrath, don't take tips from Envy on how talk to women. He wouldn't know what the hell he's talking about. Lust, on the other hand, may know, but don't compliment your wife's ass until she wants you to XD so funny, poor Wrath. :D

Bradley's backstory is hilarious. So not only did he choose his wife, the very expectation of him marrying wasn't there, so he did that on his own too. Cool.. Thanks for translating the interview!

So Ross had some great adventures in Xing, I hope that someday Arakawa will make bonus chapters with all these littles stories (Bradley trying to seduce his future wife, Ross avoiding the Xing Emperor to be murdered...)

Also for the 4th question, I think Arakawa misunderstood it : the question seem to mean to know if, like in the first anime, there is another world (our world) with the alter ego of almost everybody, but instead she talked about the "thing" front of someone's door.

My sentence may be ill-written.
The question is like "What is in the other side of door?".
Then the answer is "It's simply a same body of an identical person who opened the door on the other side of the door though it's unsubstantial at first".
That is, it means nothing is in the other side of door except unsubstantial body of door's owner.

The first anime setting is unrelated to the manga.

So if I understand : on the other side of the door, there is a "copy" of the guy, but he's unsubstantial, and he "push" the door to open it. And when the alchemist came back, the "Truth" take part of his body as a fee for the trip!

But why she said that the copy are unsubstancial "at first"? Saying that looks like she's talking about the "white shadow" with the weird smile in front of the door, who become "subtancial" taking body parts!
