Weird, isn't it?


There are clearly plenty of female soldiers in the Amestris' army, but none in the kokkarenkinjutsushi ranks.

Kinda makes you wonder...

if there were any, they'd be quite rare... or maybe, just like izumi, female alchemists strongly disagree to using alchemy for battle or for military purposes. either that or female alchemists in general are rare.

so far, in the anime, there are 4 known female alchemists: psiren, lyra, dante and izumi.

I think the same... I'm kinda paranoïd about Mary-Sues... But teh females in FMA were all done great, so, maybe... Nah. It's alright like this.

hehehe, that would be cool! if she were an alchemist, what would her specialty be, i wonder? but knowing how it is between her and roy, i doubt that he'd even allow her to study alchemy.

So true, Prinz! I'm with you~!! laugh.gif

Well, considering there aren't that many women in the army... And there are barely any (Army) State Alchemists to begin with: Roy, Armstrong and... oh drat, I forgot his name. Bomber-boy. You know. Suicide bomber? OK, and you've got Gran. But he was dead in the manga... and sucked in the anime. Ah, FMA just doesn't show many alchemists.

And yep, I'm also against the whole Mary-Sue thing. >__< Than again, who isn't? (Power to the canon characters!!)

Yeah you don't see to many alchemsits in general do you. I get very confused some times about how many there are. Like in epidsode one it seemed that nobody had ever seen alchemy before, but then we keep running into people who are like amature alchemists. Strange.
I don't recall seeing any women at either the written or practical test to become a state alchemist. Which seems a little fishy.
As a girl myself I don't really go with the whole 'men are better' theory. However I am afraid that the creators of the show might. I like some of the female characters, but they definatly are sticking with female archtypes. Even Riza, who is pretty bada$$ in her gun skills, only uses them to help protect Roy and bring his success, while terribly romantic it is also terribly steriotypical. We don't see any guys trying to push the women in their life to new heights. And the fact that Winry and The Libray Girl (can never remember her name S - something) are waiting at home to help the boys most of the series. Boooo. I'd like to see a female state alchemist, she doesn't have to be a Mary Sue, (Besides isn't Winry about as Mary Sue as you can get?).
