  • 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. ^^;

Q1.
Why is Edward growing his hair?

A1.
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:

Q2.
Has Al ever thought "The good thing, I'm an armor's figure"?

A2.
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:

Q3.
Why is Hohenheim wearing glasses? He is the philosopher's stone, so he doesn't have bad eyesight, does he?

A3.
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:

Q4.
What's going on the other side of the truth's door?

A4.
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.

Q5.
Where is Mustang living in? And is the car military's?

A5.
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:

Q6.
How far did Mustang decipher the secret of Master Hawkeye?

A6.
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.

Q7.
How tight was Havoc going out with Solaris?

A7.
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:)

Q8.
Tucker was doing research "Chimera which can understand human language" though, why could he pass the State Alchemist Trial?

A8.
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.)

Q9.
Do every Xing's loyalties carry panda's handkerchief?

A9.
May's model is Shao May, and Ling's is generic panda.

Q10.
Why did Winry's parents go to Ishval?

A10.
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.

Q11.
How did Havoc contact Ross?

A11.
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.

Q12.
What was Ross doing in Xing?

A12.
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.

Q13.
Is it necessary for Homunculi to eat and sleep?

A13.
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.

Q14.
It seems somewhat Selim can change his appearance about age though, can't he mutate?

A14.
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.

Q15.
Has Sloth's chain been worn since he was born?

A15.
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.

Q16.
How rude word did Bradley say when going on a date with his wife?

A16.
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

I'm a member.

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.

:iconamber1003:
amber1003 Featured By Owner May 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

:iconattila1987:
attila1987 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010
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!

:iconamber1003:
amber1003 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Umm...I imagine it's not one's copy but the sense as if seeing own figure in a mirror.
"At first" this is unsubstantial, but it's viewable by paying "toll", and viewable part is only body parts which have been taken as toll.

And I think unsubstantial figure and white shadow are equal meaning.

Is Solaris the woman that Lust was disguised at in one of the manga?
It's weird, because there's a Solaris that's like an insanely powerful Fire Demon in another media ^^; So I know two people who are called "Solaris" :XD:
I like Ed with long hair, so I'm glad he doesn't cut it. I've been used to Al's human form with both long and Short hair so I dont complain on seeing Al with Short hair. And Wrath being slapped by his wife. That was hilarious xD

amber1003 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're welcome!

Yeah, I write about FMA, so naturally Solaris points Lust.

I like Ed with long hair, too. :D
Maybe Ed will leave his hair long because Ed's rough sketch of each ages by Arakawa-san was long hair.

Yeah, Wrath can't catch up with wife's slap even if he has "most powerful eye". :XD:

:iconxanxalchemistsxlovex:
It's a fascinating name, even though I have no reason to like Solaris from Sonic 06 at all. ^^;

I hope so =D
It fits him perfectly! Plus Ive ALWAYS seen Ed with long hair. Never short except when he was a child and the FIRST anime's other side of the gate Edward.

Hahaha! I agree :XD:

Well, you know, another Edward is modeled on Arakawa-san's rough sketch as well.
Arakawa-san had ever drawn a sketch, "If Edward would have short hair". :D

Ugh.. Did Hawkeye die?
My friend was just telling me that somebody stabbed her and showed me a picture of it. And she also thought that Alphonse died as well. It's making me sad thinking about it.

I can't say anything in the situation that I'm not sure whether you're OK about a spoiler or not, so I'll give you a hint...I think FMA isn't simple story to be able to find out the answer easily by only a glance of the scene. ;)
Reply
:iconxanxalchemistsxlovex:
Wait so there's a chance they're alive then?? I hope they are me and my friend were really sad when she read the chapter 100 and the guy stabbed Hawkeye DDDDDX

Im okay about spoilers :nod: I knew that Edward was going to have a pole stuck through him like 2 years before it came to the US here o__o

This chapter ends with the situations that Hawkeye was stabbed and Al was no reaction.
Rather you don't think judging their death by only those situations is too hasty, do you?
Your friend seems to read the recent chapter though, I didn't think they died at all.

First, Ed, Al and Izumi were sent to Father's place at the same time with human transmutation by old scientist-cum-alchemist who has "gold tooth" and made "Wrath" in past times, and Ed is together with Mustang, Hawkeye and Scar and meets that old man.
And that "gold tooth bastard" had kept the other soldiers who couldn't become Fuhrer, and he used some soldiers as a consideration of human transmutation.
This way seems to be just same as one that Ed escaped from Gluttony's belly.

Well, about Hawkeye.
The gold tooth bastard requires "opening the truth's door and coming back" of Mustang to make him final human sacrifices.
Mustang rejected with saying "I never do. I heard human transmutation is never succeeded from Elric brothers." or something.
So Hawkeye was stabbed by one of soldiers as a threat to Mustang.
This is my assumption though, if she would be killed, Mustang must not make human transmutation but wipe out all enemy.
That's because he knows human transmutation is never succeeded.
Maybe the gold tooth also knows Mustang never makes human transmutation if Hawkeye will die, and he wants to make Mustang make human transmutation, so what this means will be like "Make human transmutation just now, otherwise she'll bleed to death. It's not too late yet".
And he is saying it's okay to use soldiers as a consideration.

And about Al.
Al was sent to Father by human transmutation.
This means it's possible for Al to meet Al's truth who has his body in front of his truth's door like past Ed.

That's why I don't think they would die at all.

thank you for the translation!! I'm a little confused by answer to question 4. does that mean that when someone opens the gate, a double of him is created? or does it reffer to the form of Shinri-kun's 'body'? in brotherhood, after all, they showed that the Truth Ed and Izumi were facing was different... I'm a bit confused^^;
Reply
:iconamber1003:
amber1003 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're welcome! :D

Well, it's completely my interpretation though, I thought "the other side of the door" is like "a mirror" when reading this.
There are as many Truth-kuns as the number of people, so Ed's truth and Izumi's truth are different form because they see the truth through "own mirror" though the meaning of the truth itself is same.
And at first, it's blurry and superficially doesn't look like present like actual Truth-kun, but it gets to see as an entity by being taken own part of bodies, I think.
Because Al was taken whole of his body, and the minds of Ed and Al will be getting crossed, Ed could see Al's truth which forms Al...maybe.
