~ The Golden State Watch: Original idea or translation error? ~

Hello, I've noticed that in the early manga volumes, there was one scene where someone says the state watch (or whatever that watch is called that amplifies alchemy, given to state alchemists) is golden. But in later volumes and in the anime, the watch is silver. Was the state watch originally supposed to be gold, or was it just a translation error? huh.gif

Sadly it was a translation error on the part of Viz. sad.gif

It was and always should have been a silver watch.

@Mhacy - Chapter 97 will be out in Japan on Friday, July 10, 2009.

(Usually the new chapter comes out on 12th on each month, but once in a while the date gets earlier like this for National Holidays in Japan around that date, or whatnot. ^^)

To find out the scheduled official release date of next upcoming chapter, go to my translation of the current chapter, and at the end of the chapter translation I normally include official scheduled release date of the next chapter as an added info. smile.gif

Can someone explain the whole "Al losing his body" thing? wacko.gif I read something about Al's sould being rejected from his "mother's" body (that big thing that the bro's transmuted) and that his body was used as a fee for going through the gate. Also why did Al faint in the snow after seeing his body? Sorry if this question has already been asked before.

Well, when we are talking about al already...

Which senses does he have? Which body functions can he "do"?

I mean, he can certainly see, but not taste, he can think, but not (well can't come up with a good example at the moment...

Hope you understand my question^^
(Sorry if I am acting a little bit dumb by asking such questions...)

I'm pretty sure that in addition to being able to see, he can also hear... Logically, he doesn't have a sense of touch, nor can he smell or taste anything... because he's made of metal. So if there's a forest fire or something, he wouldn't be able to smell the smoke, but he could see and hear the flames and the smoke.

From this we can conclude that any movements he makes are purely eye-hand coordination.

As for bodily functions... I think we can safely leave out all eating and... waste procession related. He himself stated he can't sleep BUT he can apparently lose consciousness when his (real) body pulls his soul. He can't bleed... but you can break his arm la Scar...

I can't think of anything else dry.gif Hope that helped.

@Reta McClain - well... I thought about it... But how do we know that he can't feel stuff, or smell them? I mean, a metal body shouldn't be able to see or hear, but yet it does....

_Mat: I just put those things down to a fact that it's a manga sleep.gifU But about feeling things, in chapter 6 (I think) he said something about not being able to feel the rain drops hitting his armor. I just came up with the smelling things part, because I see it and tasting things very closely related to each other.

Now I'm confusing myself. Maybe I'll avoid this thread for a while...

@Reta McClain

um... now i recall the thing about the feeling, and your answer seem to be resonable. I think I will just accept it^^

But still... Why does he see and hear, but not feel or smell?

Eyes are the windows to the soul, and since his soul is connected to the armor..... he has sight! Hahaha I just made that up, but I guess it's not a totally bad theory.

As for hearing.... I guess it's just for convenience. I mean, if Al couldn't hear, anyone who wanted to talk to him would have to use sign language. That wouldn't be convenient at all in a manga. I guess it's just up to whatever Arakawa finds to be most logical.

Alphonse being able to see, hear and speak is probably mostly there because otherwise it would be very inconvenient for the plot... So Arakawa decided that in the FMAverse, if you're a bodyless soul, you don't have sense of feeling, smell or taste, but you can see and hear and talk.

Also, seeing and hearing are sort of less "physical" senses than for example feeling - you don't have to physically touch something to see or hear it. Okay, you don't neccessarily have to touch something to smell it either, but since bodyless souls don't breathe...

How long did it take for Ed and the others to go from Resembool to the Xerxes ruins?

I was wondering the other day how big a kingdom Xerxes was and remembered Ed was at the spot told to Hohenheim as being the center of the circle. That would mean Ed and the others traveled to approximately the center of Xerxes? Now would that mean the boundaries of the kingdom could have reached what is now the Eastern area of Amestris? Or was Xerxes just a small place?
