Re: Fullmetal Alchemist 108 - Final Chapter!!

Great final chapter! I rather enjoyed the last several pages because it ended in a sensible way and didn't cater to the whims of the fans so we didn't get any stupid crap like the obvious union of Ed and Winry, Arakawa did good in just briefly depicting the outcome of the events after the final battle against the homunculus. Some parts did surprise me like Mustang not being elevated to Furuer automatically and gave it up to the old man. Smart move I thought on Arakawa's part because he knows that his character Mustang still has lots to learn and is too young. But at least he got a high enough promotion that enabled him to move things around within the government for the better which was his original intent from him but most importantly to comply with the request from Hughes. It did leave on a note that begs to keep the series going but if we learned anything from long running shonen series is that its a slippery slope down hill if not executed properly or if the right mangaka isn't present (*glares at Kishi and Kubo*). But alas its all over with Fullmetal Alchemist. I will be sure to keep a close eye on Hiromu Arakawa for his future projects.

Re: Fullmetal Alchemist 108 - Final Chapter!!

I was glad that Ed didn't sacrifice Hohenheim, as that seemed too much of an obvious choice. Ed sacrificing his connection to truth, his ability to use alchemy, was great in that I didn't see it coming. I think the movie of the original Anime kind of foreshadowed Ed without Alchemy. It's good Al was able healthily recover from his condition. And Ed actually grows tall after the years.lol Now he looks just like a Young Hohenheim. I liked Greed's sacrifice, and Ling still cracks me up. Overall, I was pleased with the ending and it leaves us on a good signal, everything's answered, well mainly answered; though people can speculate on how things will turn out down the line (since Ed and Al's journey is starting up again). Other Shounen writers should take note from this; on how to end a manga.

Re: Fullmetal Alchemist 108 - Final Chapter!!

Original anime had a better ending. This was ok but a tad bit to happy go lucky. Mustang got to keep his eyesight(lame) while Ling not only got free'ed from Greed but was also able to keep a philosophers stone for himself. Al got his body back(we all knew that would happen) at basically no real cost (losing the ability to use alchemy for Ed isn't that great of a cost) while their father dies with a smile at his wifes grave. O yeah & Ed proposes to Winry & she accepts. Yes definitely to happy go lucky.


@Kakashi87; Actually Ed proposed to Winry & she basically said yes. Meaning they're engaged so I'm not sure what you mean by "didn't get any stupid crap like the obvious union of Ed and Winry" since you know they plan on getting married in the future. I guess you failed to understand Ed asking for half her life in exchange for half of his was his way of asking her to marry him lol.

PS: Mustang did become Furher while Ed & Winry had two kids based on 108/110-111. O yeah & Ling of course became emperor while Al hooked up with Mei Chan.

Re: Fullmetal Alchemist 108 - Final Chapter!!

Mustang didn't become Furher yet. http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/108/092/ The old man that basically helped Mustang stage the coup is the current Furher. Mustang got elevated to Brigadier General, this page is the proof http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/108/086/ which is a couple of pages before the old man made mention that he wouldn't give up title of Furher yet.

What I meant about that previous comment of Ed and Winry's union is that the author didn't make it too much of a big deal and didn't included a wedding spalsh page and whatnot. Of course I know Ed proposed to Winry in his weird way and the last page with the pic of him and his kids emphasizes it. I was simply acknowledging that Arakawa covered his bases and made mention of how things ended up with the rest of the cast.

FYI: Ling looks hilarious as emperor.

The final image that I posted (page 110-111) was shots of everyone in the future(as in after it was mentioned that the old man took over as Furher). Look at Mustangs clothing the stars on the side are that of the Furhers normal attire. So yes Mustang did eventually become Furher.

Yes indeed that last page is a time skip and Mustang did get elevated from Brigadier General to General. Note the stars on Grumman: http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/108/094/ and the one on Mustangs shoulders, http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_A...t/108/110-111/ he only has three stars.

This wiki page also clarifies it: http://fma.wikia.com/wiki/Military_Ranks

He's obviously next in line to become Fuhrer after Grumman.

Re: Fullmetal Alchemist 108 - Final Chapter!!

Someone wanna clear this up for me? While Ed sacrifice his ability to use alchemy to get Al's body back, does Al now still possess the ability to use alchemy? I probably missed the part in the chapter that explains this.

Yeah Al can still use Alchemy. Both he and Ed went through his own gate of truth (proof that he still has the ability to use Alchemy) to return to the human world.

Thanks, you think Ed will find a way to use alchemy again or are his alchemy days over?
