After reading chapter 35 I no longer think Roy will survive this story. I think he's made 2 very significant mistakes, both of which deserve retribution.

Spoiler:


Shame, as he's such a cool character...

I agree. While that didn't cross my mind, as soon as you mentioned Roy might not live out this story, I think you're right. He's done some pretty bad things and he's a little irrational. And I think it's that irrational attitude that will take him down. It is a shame...

But I can't say I like him anymore after what happened with Maria Ross.

Spoiler:


Truly is too bad. He used to be cool. But it's very FMA-like. The good guys are not that good and the bad guys are not that bad. Several shades of gray exist. I love the complexity.

Yeah, I'm thinking this one was pretty final. It's too bad. -_- I know FMA likes to play with our minds so much, but I think in this case, it's not.

In my opinion what Roy did was inhumane....but is also kind of correct.

<spoiler>I mean your important best friend died, several evidence points out that it is Ross who did it (of course its not but i'm thinking in Roy's view)...and the news paper just "confirmed" that it was Ross who killed Hughes (the newspaper was bs-ing...it was obvious that the military has planned for Ross to be blamed for this incident).

Well now that Roy knows (thinks he knows) who killed Hughes...of course he would revenge......while he was moving to the prison. Ross escaped, which gives Roy an even bigger opportunity to revenge.

Oh and this was what Roy said before he fried Ross.

Farman (is this his name?): *just recovered* That bastard...so this was what "lend me the phone" meant....to bash me in the head. *talks to Riza* Where is the Colonel?
Riza: The colonel is out. He said that he would not be back in a short while. *the camera then zooms to Ross engaging Roy*
Roy: Are you Maria Ross?
Ross: ?
Roy: *snap*
explosion occurs...Ross fried...FMA finds Roy.
Ed: What..? Whats the meaning of this?
Roy: Yo, Fullmetal.
Ed: WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!! </spoiler>

What Roy did was inhumane and unbecoming as a disciplined soldier.

He is turning into the disgusting, inhumane, alchemist stereotype that he himself loathes.

I pity him if and when he realises the truth of who killed Maes.

Yeah, he has a tendancy to self-guilt like Ed does.

Put me in the group that thinks Roy pulled a fast one and didn't actually kill her. Just the way the events there played out leads me to think that maybe Roy is covering for her for some reason. I don't don't think Roy is that cold-blooded, he knows there are strange events going on. I doubt he will believe everything is as it seems, especially when it came to the events surrounding Hughes death.

The charred body with the convenient wrist ID tags remaining makes me think that is a subbed body. Roy might not let on to Ed that he made such a switch (at least until Roy figures out more about what is going on), but I figure the audience will at least see that he pulled the switch.

Roy pulling a fast one is highly doubtful. If you look carefully at the scans, you would notice there would be precious little time between the panel where Roy starts his flames and where Ed reaches that alley and sees that charred body.

I would hope he did, but since FMA is getting a dark turn, I would think Maria was sacrificed by the FMA creator to add more angst to the story...

Having read FMA Chapter 36 in July's Gangan, I am more pleased in the way the manga is developing.

Spoiler for about Maria Ross in 35:


Anyway I think the FMA author took a very dangerous step here, it's most likely a lose-lose situation for him, unless he can pull out something miraculous in the next few chapters...

Hmmm, I am not too sure what you mean by this. "Lose-lose"?

Well at least that happened to me

Heh sorry, just bear with it till I get the time to translate it (should be quite easy since a Chinese scanlate just got released recently that I can verify/compare my own translations against his, time will then be taken up by editing).

I don't know if there is a quantitative way to measure their power (power can mean quite a lot of things). But in terms of combat ability, I will put Wrath as the one that can kick all their hineys to kingdom come, and Envy shall be the one sculpering away whimpering like the worm he is

Well if anyone is curious enough, someone has put up the first 15 scans (bad quality) for chp 36 with their own Chinese translations at http://cs01.xfzx.com/bbsxp/showtopic...umid=2&page=10

This site is pretty unstable though...

Beware: if you decide to navigate around there, it is primarily a FMA fangirl site...
