y'know when Ed's wearing his boxers and you see that piece of black peeking out from underneath? what is it? i heard somewhere that it was spandex, but that seems just plain impractical to wear spandex AND boxers, especially when wearing as tight pants as Ed does. before i thought it was just some kind of censorship thing, but now i'm not sure. little help? huh.gif

I've wondered that too. Probably for his own modesty so Winry and Granny Pinako can work on him without worrying. And he doesn't wear them all the time. I think in a later episode he is just wearing his boxers, but I don't remember correctly. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Or maybe it's just the sunlight from above casting a shadow.

Light does that, you know.

Exactly. Just so you know, everything does not have to be something. It is just the shadow from his boxers. I think that the animators did that so you don't think you see something that isn't there.

I don't think so, because if you look at the pic above, it looks like the sun is casting its shadow over Ed's skin BELOW the area in question. You can see by the somewhat darker shaded area of his skin.

There will always be some places where the viewer can see but the sun will not reach. Those places will always be in the shadow.

i thought it was a shadow too, but why make the shadow completely black instead of the darker skin color, like they normally do for shadows on the skin. it would look lots better and would just make more sense.

thats definately the shadow because when he would squiggle on the ground the black would go away then come back.

They may have made it completely black to show the contrast between those shadows and the more "visibly obvious" shadows elsewhere.

And a little logic lesson for the littl'uns:

(1) Humans are sometimes lazy beings.
(2) Animators are human.
So, (3) Animators are sometimes lazy beings.

I always just assume shadow for most of these things.

I can see where you would think it was spandex though.

Heh heh, spandex.

I don't think they even had spandex back then, in their world.
