Well, I think so too. As PrincessElir says, fanfictions keep mentionning that. I know it's fiction, but still, I don't think so many people would make up something like this.

Here's the page from the guidebook:



The text above Grumman's pic says that he's Hawkeye's grandfather on her mother's side.

QUOTE (Hey @ Jun 10 2009, 12:23 PM) *
There's currently no mention of it in the series, only in Perfect Guidebook 2.
The page with the pyramid-thing of the military ranks, the text above Grumman's headshot mentions this.

Thank you, Hey!! biggrin.gif Yap, this is the correct answer, and we have the page scan posted, along with the answer, on Q&A thread also. (BTW, I changed your post to larger font to show you had already posted the answer. ^^)


ETA: Thank you Michiyo-!! You're a wonderful help!! biggrin.gif



Closing the thread.
I will merge this to Manga Q&A thread later.

If anyone has more questions on FMA manga, please post on FMA manga Q&A thread. smile.gif


ETA: June 19, 2009 merged thread.

~ How Are Mei And Ling Related? ~

So here's something I don't understand;
Ling is the twelfth prince of Xing and Mei is the seventeenth princess of Xing, so that would make them brother and sister, right (maybe different mothers)?
But that's never been made clear and with them being enemies, they being in different clans etc... I'm kinda confused.

Re: How Are Mei And Ling Related?

@Yikie - I'm assuming they are half brother and sister, and the current Xing emperor has lots of lots of wives and concubines, and one of them is May's mother from Chan clan and another one is Lin's mother from Yao clan. smile.gif

I don't recall seeing farther details on this in manga, but if anyone has better info please post and help. biggrin.gif


BTW, I will merge this thread to FMA manga Q & A thread in a while.

Anyone who has any other questions on FMA manga, please post your question on FMA manga Q & A thread, and we'll try to help you there. smile.gif

Re: How Are Mei And Ling Related?

Yeah, you know, this is also something that I've thought about. But they are only physically half brother and sister, they don't come from the same family. The king has a child in every clan, I THINK there are 24 princes and 19 princesses.

Re: How Are Mei And Ling Related?

mm I read some stuff up on this a long time ago, I can't really remember much of it now, but the system is apparently based on an ancient chinease system where the Emporer takes a wife (concubines) from different clans in the country and has a child with them. There could be loads of children, waaay into double digits. Anyway Ling and Mei share the same father but will have different mothers, so are only half-syblings, the reason for the enemyness, is that the succsor of the throne will be able to provide a better life for their clan, so there is a lot of competition between the syblings,since they're from different clans I expect they will have had very little to do with each other growing up.

Re: Which senses does Al have? Which body functions can Al "do"?

I never really thought about it before...I guess I sorta thought of Al a bit like your typical ghost, ghosts as people usually portray them can hear and see, in other words 'observe' but are frequently invisible to other people and can not interact physically with objects. They don't breath and therefore can not smell either. It's not 'Al' people are seeing, it't the armour hes locked in, sooo yer thats how i thought of it.

It was never mentioned in the manga I am pretty sure but it's in the 2nd perfect guide book.

@Goral - Yap, Kirara is correct. ^^ Please check out my post on this thread here, then click on posted scanned page of Perfect Guidebook 2.
There is also another entry in the character encyclopedia section of the same book, and under General Grumman it again says he is Riza's Grandfather on her mother's side. And, since Perfect Guidebook 2 is one of the few official FMA guidebooks, I tread this as semi-canon fact even though this was never stated in the manga chapters. smile.gif

Thanks for replies Kirara and Tombow. I regret though that I've learned about this via non-manga source. It would be so much better to read it in one of the chapters. My jaw would be definitely on the floor for a longer period of time. I'm sure Arakawa had a reason for not informing 'casual' readers like me about them being related (for now at least).
