Me: yay first page "Homunculus dayo~~~"
Kirsten: Wait, just a sec, Manga Viewer freaked out because it couldn't find Kojika.
Kirsten: *should probably find a better manga reader program*
Kirsten: Okay, got it open. EW SCANS.
Me: HAHAHA third page

-Ling confirmed that Greed's cut off ties with the Homunculi
-Father will open the Doors on "that day"...

Kirsten: *on page 7*
Me: lol Ed's the only normal human there
Kirsten: Hahahha 8D
Me: I love how Greed is all O_O
Kirsten: He makes awesome faces
Kirsten: Then he basically tells Ed to screw himself, nice.
Kirsten: sldkfjhlskjhsfds awwww Eddddddddd ;_; He looks so sad
Me: it's so sweet though, he understands Greed now ;_;
Me: fjkasjfois YES more Ling and Greed talk *_*
Me: I find it interesting that Ling is still wearing his clothes from before in his mind
Me: dude is Ed really THAT much shorter than him now?
Kirsten: Holy crap Ed's face on page 14
Me: oh god I'm loving this so much
Kirsten: Awwwww Winry's earrings
Me: omg Olivier
Kirsten: Omg do we get to meet the other sisters?
Me: ...wait, I need to take a moment to revel in the awesome of the past 15 pages first
Me: DEVIL'S NEST 2.0! IT'S OFFICIAL! AND ED IS IN!
Kirsten: I want to see Louisko and Arme.
Me: I guess this solves the problem of who's on top for the Ed/Ling shippers now
Me: ...I just noticed that Olivier is SPARKLING now
Me: even she can't avoid doing it when she's in her family's house!!
Me: OMFG WHAT

Me: A HOUSEWIFE <3
Kirsten: fdlkjhshsddfhs she's locked up
Me: omfg now she's in prison

Me: it appears that Izumi and Olivier must never cross paths or else the universe will explode
Kirsten: Explode from SHEER AWESOME
Me: this is so friggin awesome. THEY'RE ALL IN CONTACT AND WORKING TOGETHER *__*
Kirsten: Goddammit this chapter really IS everywhere
Kirsten: Why is there an asterisk by Hayate's bark?
Me: uh...I dunno
Me: maybe Arakawa meant to make a translation note for his bark somewhere but forgot? "Bark!*"
*"Bark" means Hello
Me: this chapter is really going a mile a minute
Me: at this rate I wonder if it's gonna be Spring by the time the final battle comes XD
Kirsten: WHEN IS ED TURNING SIXTEEN
Me: MAYBE GREED-TACHI WILL THROW HIM A BIRTHDAY PARTY
Kirsten: WILL HAVOC BE IN THIS CHAPTER
Me: WHAT WAIT
Me: I wonder if Pride is still keeping an eye on Riza in East City?
Kirsten: Lawl "CENTLAL STATION"
Me: hahahaha Black Hayate XD
Me: ohhh okay so Rebecca came to Central, not the other way around
Kirsten: Yeah :O
Me: HAHAHA THEY'RE BEING SO SNEAKY
Me: HAVOC~ *___*
Kirsten: skjdflhkjafkhadf FINALLY
Kirsten: I bet next we'll see Roy
Me: YOU WERE RIGHT
Kirsten: Oh man
Kirsten: HOW DID I GUESS THAT WAS THE CHAPTER TITLE.
Me: ...wow. the chapter title at the END of the chapter?!
Me: ...that was pretty EPIC *__*
Kirsten: EXACTLY WHAT I WAS ABOUT TO SAY
Me: okay, so this info went from Al & Hohenheim -> Mason -> Izumi & Sig -> Briggs -> Grumman -> Rebecca -> Riza -> Havoc -> Roy? THEY'RE ALL CONNECTED I'M LOVING THIS
Kirsten: ... *goes back to playing Apollo Justice omfg*
Kirsten: I have to finish it TODAY so that I don't suffer through work tomorrow yearning to play it.
Me: are we going to do a scanlation this month? :O
Kirsten: Maybe if we get better scans?
Me: I might start translating this chapter today then
Kirsten: Okay *_*
Me: "Toshi wo koshite raishun...."
woah, so the final battle WILL take place in the Spring! *___*
Me: no wonder there's been so much time-jumping lately
EDIT: I just realized...if Volume 20 ends up having 5 chapters again, then this will be the chapter that it ends on. PERFECT ENDING. Does this mean the build-up chapters are over now? Should we expect to start seeing BIG things happening from now on?
