hey, two volumes went by without anyone dying! the thing i like about these is that things are actually progressing with the plot; it isn't treading water or posing contests. real motion on the main stories of the characters- alphonse's body, colonel mustang in the worst meeting of all time with king bradley fuhrer president, ling becoming greed, scar finding out about envy & the isbalan civil war, the little girl revealed as another princess, the whole shebang. plus, the super-creepy cover of edward with the the eye of the portal inside of his silhouette is just great; is it just me or is the automail's attachment to his clavicle a new addition to how he's drawn? from what i hear, the manga is up to volume seventeen (17) in japan, & still ticking; i would like for it to come to an end though.
