This is a surprise.
Humans coming out from his stomach...
Chapter 54- The Fool's Struggle
text: After they've escaped from Gluttony's stomach, what is waiting for them...?!
Are you the Elric brothers?
Aren't you mistaking me for someone?
Do you mean Van Hohenheim?
How are you related him? [As in, how do you know him? He's not asking them if they are actually related...is that clear enough?]
He's our father....
I'm surprised!! So he's had children!!
If I'm not mistaken, your surname is Elric, is it not? Mm?
'Elric' is the surname from our mother's side!!
Hohenheim and our mother haven't been entered in a family register!!
We have no familial connections to him!!
I see...I didn't realize it because of your mother's surname...
And? Where is he now?
How should I know!!
He's alive...that's right... (mumble mumble)
Wait! I don't understand!
Who are you?! You look just like Hohenheim!
There's no way it would die...but to think it's even made children...
LISTEN TO ME!!
Are you injured?
The little brother is missing his left hand
Ah...Al, sorry! I forgot your left hand in Gluttony's stomach!
No way!! Can this be fixed?
Besides that, your body...
Is this alright?
A bone fracture.
EEEOWW OWW AAGHH!!!
(Wait...just now, he...!!)
Mm? Is there anything else wrong?
Your head? Your shoulders? Mm?
Hmm, it's your ribs
Is that enough?
(He operates without any motion at all!!)
(Furthermore, without even making my armor arm thinner)
(He grew it back to its normal thickness?!)
You two are precious lives, after all.
You must take good care of your bodies.
Any other injuries?
Ling is also...
...What are you..... (cough)
What is with your insides.....
What joke is this?!
I'll ask you the same.
What are you?
You may eat him, Gluttony.
Wait! He's my friend!
For my sake! So, you know! See!
I don't care.
This human is of no use to me.
Why is a human I don't need like you here?
Friends? I know nothing of that. For me, it is only a matter of usefulness.
What did you say?!
He's the one called 'Father' by the homunculi. He's the one who created them.
In other words, a bad guy?
...Seems that way, but he fixed our bodies...
I don't like it.
Just what you'd expect from the homunculi's boss
Laughing at humans and calling them 'fools'...he has the same eyes as them.
I do not think that.
Do you humans see a beetle crawling on the ground and think of it as 'foolish'?
Even when an insect is struggling, aren't your levels so different that you don't spare any emotion?
What I feel toward you humans is the same as that.
Nooooooooo way!! Even if he healed my wounds, I still can't get along with him!!
Seems like that bearded guy over there is the source of all evil!
Guess I'll have to beat him up and leave in a flash!!
Wait! I'm telling you he's dangerous! First we should examine his approach and...
Ahh?! That's too much trouble!!
Haven't you heard the saying 'If you want to shoot the leader, first aim for his horse'?!
If you want to shoot the leader, then you should just shoot him!! (Go WHAM!)
(Is he stupid?)
This is the decisive battle, we can't be bothered over the small fry!!
You can't fight for long in that condition, right?
...To think that a prince would be given pity from a civilian
How dare you call me a small fry, you pipsqueak!!
Hahah! Do you think you can win with just that...
I said we're aiming for him first!!
You've become an adult, Brother!
We've captured the boss!!
That's for calling me 'pipsqueak' earlier!
[...and there's really not much else to translate here, I'll leave it to Kirsten]
(What's going on!!)
(Why is he able to transmute without moving?!)
This is a waste of time.
Oh, it's nothing.
If you just stand there all day it'll become dark before you reach your destination.
How much farther is it?
As soon as we cross this mountain.
But what business do you have in the middle of the mountains?
There's nothing where this X mark is, you know?
Hahaha, that's alright.
(Our alchemy doesn't work?!)
Hahahh!! Now calm down, pipsqueak!!
Envy, you bastaaaaard!!!
Shit...what did that bearded guy do?!
Why...why can't we use it?!
Really, when it comes to these lower life forms...
As soon as they obtain great power, they become delighted and overeager
They continue using it without even knowing what it is!!
They even think that they were able to create this current prosperity with their own power!!
What a laugh!!
You bastards, what are you planning?!
Didn't you promise to tell me when we got out of Gluttony?!
I don't remember any promise with you insects
You've said too much, Envy.
Oh, now...look how much you've damaged my house.
It's pathetic that you've allowed people to trespass all the way here
This one's had a good upbringing
He seems strong as well
If I'm going to kill him anyway, I musn't let the resource of a human go to waste...
I might be able to add to my useable pawns
I just happen to have an empty seat for Greed
....the Philosopher's Stone
The Philosopher's Stone, you say?!
Ohh? You're going to do that, Father?
He's going to make a homunculus.
He's going to pour the Philosopher's Stone into his blood.
If it goes well, a human-based homunculus will be completed.
Wait!! But they say the Philosopher's Stone is a physical form of energy...
On top of that, the souls inside the Stone will compete with the body
But if his body can withstand that, he will probably acquire a great power
Usually, they lose to the Stone's power and die though
LET US GO, ENVY!!!
DAMMIIIIT!! WHAT'S GOING ON!!
WHY WON'T IT WORK!!
YOU BEARDED BASTARD!! STOP!!
HE HAS SOMEONE WAITING FOR HIM!!
You won't be able to shoot if I do this
DON'T SHOOT, ED!!
I'm fine with this
Don't butt into it...!!
Don't do anything unnecessary!!
What...? What are you...?
GOT IT?! No matter what happens, don't butt in!!
So you desire my 'Greed'?
I TOLD YOU...NOT TO BUTT IN!!
(What is Ling thinking?!)
Who do you think...I...am?
I'm the man who will be Xing's emperor, Lin Ya....O GAAHHH
WHAT'S A KID DOING HERE?!
AH WELL!! HAND OVER YOUR BODY!!
GREED-SAMA WILL USE IT FOR YOU!!
You Greedy thing...
I'LL GIVE IT TO YOU!!!
Must mean the owner of this body
....*insert gasping noise here*
This is a pretty nice body!!
Thanks for birthing me, old man!!
side text: By means of the Philosopher's Stone's power, a new homunculus has appeared!!!
And I apologize to the people on my flist for spamming them all day about this. XDD;;
