In conqueror of shambala, Alphonse has transmutation circles on gloves, that let him perform any kind of alchemy without new circles kinda like Ed, what's up with that?

I'm still yet to watch eps 43 - 51, did I miss something?

Probably common snese, this way he doesn't need to waste time making circles. It's not hard to embroid a seal onto gloves or even tattoo them on the hands.

I was wondering that as well. In my opinion it seemed as though Alphonse had become a more powerful alchemist than his brother. (Transmuting the fountain in the dessert was a bit much) Perhaps seeing the gate had something to do with it, but why then would he need transmutation circles on his gloves?

Hmm. Remember that guy from 4 ep, called Majihal? He also propably could do many kinds of transmutation with just one circle, drawn on that bandana [yes? O_o'] on his wrist. I can't remember was he a State Alchemist, but maybe the mechanism of those gloves' working is similliar?

Maybe Al's circles are very advanced to allow for more varied abilities.

Al did not join the military. He saw the gate and began to remember everything, thus giving him the knowledge he needs to expand his alchemy. He probably made a circle on his gloves that can do a variety of things. Just becuase He can with his knowledge he now knows. Reason why he needs gloves is becuase he's not like Ed or Izumi, who have both got something taken from them but still had a body. Since Al got his NORMAL human body back with everything BEFORE The human transmutation,He needs gloves. He's not that advanced yet. But he is indeed WAY up there. >.>; but that's just me, I don't know what you guys think. laugh.gif

I think they are special circles that he uses wen he wants to transfer part of his soul into the armors.

If you have tried using alchemy by clapping your hands together put this in your signature.
*sigh* i know it's sad.

fullmetl_alchemistwater have you ever typed, or spelled a day in your life?



I agree. That just hurt my eyes. >_<;;

I was used to the circles on the gloves, but the way he could transmute almost ANYTHING with the same circle confused me, as well. Hmm...maybe a "universal circle"?

I like the 'universal circle' idea; though I think it might be a bit tricky if you had to account for every possible variable... (and there I go thinking of FMA-esque alchemy as though its real rolleyes.gif ).

I think that Al's gloves are a sort equivalent of Izumi and Ed's ability - clapping is quicker then manually drawing a circle, and therefore a great advantage in combat. Maybe these gloves would be useful things for, say, all State Alchemists to have.

Hello this is my fist time posting.

I find this wierd bc there is obviously no single circle that can to anything. Otherwise they wouldn't have to study circles or use specific ones like Mustang uses (I think his actually has a little flame on it and for some reason a lizard...) or Armstrong's. As far as I know these ones can only work for their specific purposes and do nothing else.
The only thing that seems to work for everything is the hand-clapping that Ed uses. Which makes it strange that he had to use an array when he was going to make the pholosiphers stone out of the people this might be because it was very complicated work. But he was going to split Tuckers Chimera using it, which is also complicated.

Mustang has Circles on his gloves does he not? Why not alphonse? Personally i think the circles on his gloves have something to do with wind because when Armstrong was in lior during the earthqiake he looks as though it's something special when he see's al transmute a tornadoe.

well...one thing i don't understand [spoiler]is that if in the series Alphonse saw 'The Truth' when Edward touched him, why would'nt he be able to use Alchemy without a circle in his human form....is it because he does'nt remember when he saw the gate since his memories are gone in the movie? ....AH-HA! that must be it a i answered my own question laugh.gif;; ...oops [/spoiler]


Well to the topic though, the reason i think Alphonse wears the gloves, is because i think it's all the 'I want to look like Edward' look , he has the coat ,hair ,gloves, and since he has transmutation cicles on his hands he can transmute without drawing a new circle just like Edward smile.gif

Al can't do alchemy without a circle because when he got his body back he had lost all his memories of those three years.

Thank you so much Milky for the Siggie. You are the awesomest!
