Always love you Ed, you too Al. You both will be ok, won't you? Take care now. Say hi to Winry and Grams. If you guys run into Hohenheim, don't be tooAlways love you Ed, you too Al. You both will be ok, won't you? Take care now. Say hi to Winry and Grams. If you guys run into Hohenheim, don't be too harsh. He's old, and broken hearted, and only have one life to live. So be gentle, right. And Ed... drink your milk!! You do want to grow taller, don't you?!? ;p
I wonder, what will happend General Amstrong? Will she and Mustang fight for "The Chair"??!? Naaayy... she isn't that political type anyway. She's back to north I guess. Haha...Major Alex got the mansion anyway... that a scene worth seeing.
And Roy.... It's not cheap to be where you are right now, so don't take it for granted, OK!!! Oh yeah, you should listen to Riza more often, she was your eyes once, she will always be your eyes. And guns. And conscience too. And I think Havoc will be ok soon, he always has that strong will. Soon you'll get your full team back again. ---Psstt..... had he already knew that Scar still alived??? No?!? Where is he anyway, scouting women on Madame Christine bar's again, I figure. What? Ohh, really? He's visiting Colonel Huges grave. Wow, that's very decent manner of him. *suprised*---
Hope Dr Marcoh finally got his peace among those people. He earns it. With Mustang covering the aid from central and Lin's trading line from east, people of Ishvar should be on it's own in no time. They have good leaders and always in high spirits.
I heard that Lin became Emperor at the end. Some times I thought of that last Philosopher's Stone. What greatness -or sadness- will it brings to him and his family? Hmmm... but he also got a she-warrior next to him, he would do just fine.
Meilin and her "black and white cat" were soo cute, weren't they? I'll bet she will become a very beautiful and cheerful princess someday. Hey Al..., you're lucky guy..... *_^
Bubye everybody. Nice meeting you all. *waving and smile*
One of the BEST shounen manga I ever read. No. I take that back. It is THE BEST shounen manga I ever read! It has action, it has drama. It has magic,One of the BEST shounen manga I ever read. No. I take that back. It is THE BEST shounen manga I ever read! It has action, it has drama. It has magic, but it based on scientific rules. It has politics, it has philosophy (uhm... marxism in manga, gosh!), and it has idealism. It has war maker, it has peace seeker. It has story as crucial as fate of the countrys, it has delicate story of children need their mother's care. It has dark background stories, it has hillarious way of story telling. And most of all, it has an ending. A really-really-really good ending, not a perfect happy ending nor a shabby tragedy, it just.... solid dovetail end, and life goes on.
Ed and Al Elric are brothers who had talent for being alchemists from very early age. When they were 11 and 10, their mother passed away while their father had been gone wondered for years. So with ability but without guidance, they did something taboo, try to "human transmutation" a.k.a bring their death mother back to life. This caused them dearly. Not entirely learnt their lesson, they promised each other to seek for the Philosopher's Stone which said to be carried a great power to alter the equivalent trade's law, and will have the power to restore their body back. At age 12, Ed sign into military, and got his name The Fullmetal Alchemist.
In the bigger scope, the land was at war with the Ishvar, a race that believed in one mighty God. At one time, King Bradley - the highest military commander - commanded an Ishvar Annihilation, which caused almost a wipeout of the entire race. A handful who could survive hide themselves in the slummy villages holding their grunge. But these burden not just carried by those survivors, but also by some Ametrys soldiers, doctors and scientists for their hand were tainted all over with ishvarin blood. These people, then, spent their life to made things better.
As the story goes, some secrets will revealed themselves, eventually. What is Philosopher's Stone really made from, who was Ed and Al's father, who were the seven deadly sins and what creature are they, and above all, what is the big plan behind all these riots and wars. Will they do it, is it worth it, to sacrifice so much -his leg, his arm, his entire body, her womb, her limb, his living body, his eyes, their friends, all people of Xerxes, in order to satisfy Equivalent Trade condition, and gain the true power?
Uhhmm... have I said, I love the ending. Ed's choice was a very much unpredictable, one last twist in the story, which was really equal to the result. He learnt his lesson, finally.
