Glasskatanas Alchemy in Action Review
Hiya. This is my first review ever. And Ive decided to make it of my favorite on-going manga (if not favorite manga ever) FullMetal Alchemist. Im going to start with chapter 61. For included pics Ill be using scans provided by the group www.zomgfta.com
For those of you that dont know, Im working very hard right now to try to get FMA to become a separate section here at mangahelpers. To do that I need Manga Editors and translators. Ive already got a trust-worthy Edited Manga team, but I have yet to find a definite yes from a translator. So if you would like FMA to become a separate section here, voice your support. My quest never ends.
So here we are allow me to set the mood. We join our heroes during the War in Ishbal.
1.) Colored Pic Hooray!!
2.) Even without his right arm of destruction Scar kicks ass.
3.) Mr. Crazy.
But seriously, Kimbleys eyes in this shot are what got me. Something about them is just unreadable. I cant tell if hes actually suffering, if hes going more insane, if hes overjoyed. Nothing, all I can tell is that something inside of him is working overdrive.
If you look to the right of the panel though, it would appear that Kimbley blew everything up in a straight line for miles. Think how many thousands of people he must have killed with that. How many unexpected deaths, how many people would never see the light of day again. Makes you wonder how they ever managed to catch him later on. It also makes me wonder
4.) How did Scars brother managed to survive? He was in point-blank range of Kimbleys attack and all he got was a minor head wound? And, how come Scar got such a major wound when his brother was protecting him like that? But I digress, the true point of me posting this pic is this.
5.) Uh-Oh. Oh man, I would give the same reaction if I found my brothers arm on my body. Somethings always bothered me about this though.
In the next page Scar goes on his killing rampage and ends up destroying Winrys parents. When I first read this I was confused. I couldnt figure out a good reason for why he did that. He obviously regrets it now. At first I thought it was for revenge and that he was just killing any amestrians that appeared in front of his eyes, but then I thought of another reason. What if Scar thought that it had been the Rockbells who had put his brothers arm of sinful alchemy onto his body. I dont know what he was thinking but it was a pretty stupid move. Scars gonna have to pay for killing the absolutely innocent Rockbells sometime in the future. I guarantee it.
6.) Kimbley again. You know how I was saying that Kimbley is the source of a lot of good quotes. This is one of them.
7.) Nice last lines.
8.) Ah, there he is.
Still, Roy developed quite the philosophy on life. You serve to protect those below you and in turn they protect those below them. I wonder how long he thinks he would be able to keep that philosophy up in a war-time when he was the fuhrer.
9.) Back with the crazy again.
10.) Happier days.
Well thats all for now. I hoped you enjoyed my look at this chapter. You can find the entire thing at www.zomgfta.com and if all goes well, mangahelpers will be supplying you with the future chapters in its own FMA section.
