Chapter 64 translation (Umeko ver.)
So I might just use some ridiculous terms since it's going to be changed around anyway. 8D
Page 42/42 done. COMPLETE! :OOO
Still no word on Scar?
No, sir! My utmost apologies. We are working as hard as we can on investigating.
What's with that pompous-looking man?
Shh! Quiet, we need to do a full-scale cooperation. [?? Not sure what this is, or if there's a better military term for it? XD;;]
At any rate, it's an order from the bigwigs at Central.
They said that this man is being entrusted with dealing with Scar and the like.
WTF?! Didn't they say they'd leave it up to us here at Northern Headquarters?
Kimbley-dono [Umm, keeping -sama and the like is all well and fine, I guess, but what about -dono...?]
A person resembling Scar was witnessed in the vicinity of the freight train terminal at North City Station.
Surround the freight train terminal!
Send out vehicles! North City Station!
Any accomplices? [Lit. "traveling companions," but it's not like Scar-ke is headed off to Bermuda for a family vacation or anything, right...?]
We have one confirmed.
A middle-aged man with black hair,
according to information from Central.
I'm off to work.
Don't get in my way.
Surround the cargo terminal.
I can shoot them from this range.
But we're just backup.
What?! You mean we can't shoot even if they're right in front of us?!
(It's an order from Central!)
(Do as Kimbley-san says!)
They've gone into the third cargo car.
It's a military-use car.
So that means they're going to Briggs. Bastards, are they trying to stowaway?
Kimbley-san, they're in car number 3.
Doctor Marcoh, I presume?
I've come to pick you up.
You can't run away anymore.
Are you alone? Where is Scar?
You don't know when to give up...!
Didn't I say you can't run away?
So you're the rumored Ishbalan.
Do you think Scar-san and Yoki-san are all right?
Yeah. I'm sure they're distracting the military police just fine.
Thanks to them, we're off their radar.
It's a good think we took an extra precaution in detouring to the east and then heading north.
My skin hasn't cured and is sensitive to the northern winds.
I am sorry... I hope it heals into a more attractive-looking face...
Haha... it's fine. This face suits me. [Oh Marcoh you so emo!]
It's the Briggs mountain range.
Those mountains mark the national border of the great northern nation of Drachma.
It really feels as if we've made it to the remote north region. Are we at the place Scar indicated yet?
We are almost there!
This is Scar's brother's research notes...
The one with the secrets of uniting Xing's rentanjutsu and Amestris' alchemy! Do you think it holds the methods of immortality?
I'm not sure.
So these are the notes of hope.
Or they may turn out to be the notes of despair...
Eh? They've checked out of the hotel?
Yes, sometime yesterday.
Did they say anything?
I haven't been told of any message for you...
(And I was thinking of finally sending Al this good polishing oil I found...)
Do you know where they were going?
They were talking about reserving tickets for a coach train to Briggs in the north.
Well? Are the brothers doing well?
Ed is going to the north in that condition.
Oh my, that means...
BKKSCHOOOOO!!! [Hmm... I need to work on BokuxNeko.]
Brother, do you have a cold?
Oooh~~~~ It's cold~~~~
As to be expected from Briggs.
This is it, buckos.
If you go along this road here you'll find yourself at Briggs Fortress.
Ahh, the weather is changing on the mountaintop.
If you're going, go quickly.
The bigger one!
Is that automail?
No, it's just armor.
Ah, but I have automail.
Also, beyond that fence it's military territory.
If you stray from the road, you'll die.
Easy for him to say the mountain's weather is changing, but...
To think it changes this drastically!! [Hahaha, is Al protecting his privates from being exposed???? XDDDD]
Whad do we do, Brother?!! We've completely lost sight of the road!!
Ahhhhhh, don't worry, Al!
Teacher Izumi was thrown into the wintry Briggs Mountains for one month when she was training, and she came out of it just fine!
She was lying!! She was definitely lying!! There's no way she could have survived in this for one month!!
...She said she even defeated a bear!!
She was lying!! I hear the bears in Briggs are more than two meters tall when they stand upright!!
She can't have possiby defeated......
That's not a bear!!
That's an army uniform!!
Hohhohhhh, so you have automail, too.
It's so bland.
Same to you, yours is really gaudy. [Oooh, I like the buttons on Ed's collar...]
Ngh!! You don't know beautiful craftsmanship when you see it, you fool!!
Combat automail M1913-A "Crocodile"!!
If you don't want to be decimated then you'd come quietly, you Drachman spies!!
What are you talking about, we're...
You don't know what you're talking about, you big lug!!
(What's with this pain...)
(My automail isn't moving well!!)
I got you!!
You bastard... stobbit!! [I don't know what he's SUPPOSED to be saying here, but...]
Listen to what people have to say!! (I got snow down my back!!)
You still defy me! [OMFG HIS ARM IS A LAWNMOWER]
WTF IS THIS----?!!!
I've weakened your automail!!
The weakened one is...
Were you doing something?
OWAAAAHHH!! Wait, time out, time out!!
Thank you, Al!!
[No idea how to translate this...]
I'll be killed by Winry before I can die in the snowy mountains.
You've done it, kid.
Good job, for normal automail.
But this is as far as it goes.
Briggs Mountain Security?!
You still have us at gunpoint?
What is it, Captain Buccaneer?
Sir! Apologies for the noise, Major General Armstrong!!
That's who Major Armstrong said we should introduce ourselves to...
Major General Olivier Mila Armstrong...
The Major's older sister!!
(She doesn't look like him!!)
(She's not that big!!)
Who are you?
Ah... The Fullmetal Alchemist, Edward Elric!!
We were sent from Central by Major Armstrong to introduce ourselves to Major General Arm...... Arrgh, this is confusing!!
We've come to meet you, Major General!
But we'd first like you to call off your guards!
Conduct a full-body search.
I said we're not anyone suspicious!
How do I know? Anyone can rattle off the names of famous people.
Uwah, it's empty?!
It's a letter of introduction from Major Alex Louis Armstrong!
If you read it, you'll know that we're not anyone suspicious!
This is definitely Alex.
You didn't read it?!
Letters of introduction have no meaning to me.
I don't need evaluations from other people.
I judge people with my own eyes.
Come in, Fullmetal Alchemist.
A word of precaution: I will not treat you as a child.
This is Briggs, the land of natural defense.
A world of survival of the fittest.
If you aren't strong, you won't survive! In the vast land of Briggs in the north, the story is speeding up!!
