Well, I mentioned this a month ago when chapter 76 came out, but now another has joined me in my belief.
I think the Full Metal Alchemist manga is coming to its conclusion.
Yeah, yeah, yell, complain, cry, whatever. Honestly, if you look at the events occuring in the manga, they're all building quite rapidly to a climax. Whether this climax is indeed the final one is unknown, but all the homunculii are known, Father is about to make his own move for the first time, and Al's bond seems to be weakening. All of this adds up to one thing in my eyes: the end of the series.
Yes, I too would be sad if this is true, but I want to know how it ends. A series is only as good as how it is ended. If it drags on forever, it loses its grandeur. Only time will tell, hmm?
