I didn't even notice Al's shoes. Are they the same as Ed's were? The only reason Ed wore them was because they made him taller. biggrin.gif

Well, Al is something of a dork you have to admit, albeit a really cute one!

XD When you mention it, Al is pretty much a dork...XD But his brother's a nerd. >.>

Has it occured to anyone that perhaps nobody else knew that Edward was gone, thus Al imitates Ed as much as he can so that he can use the state budget under the pretense of being the Fullmetal Alchemist? His travel expenses can't be cheap.

Dosen't Kimbley clap his hands when he's using his splodey circles?

I never really understood the movie in the first place, I just make assumptions after reading what everyone else has to say...But that would make sense...XD;

I don't think so. Al isn't in the military, there's absolutely never a single mention of him joining and he doesn't have a pocketwatch to set him apart as a state alchemist. Also, how much money does he need? A. He needs water and he uses alchemy to create a well. B. Ed mentioned in one episode that he could use alchemy to turn grass into bread so it stands to reason that Al has the same ability, C. He can probably repair or create new clothes using alchemy and D. Ed made enough friends that Al could easily call on any of them for transportation purposes. Actually he could call on any of them for ANY purpose. There's no way the friends of Ed (who include Rose, Armstrong, Pinako, Winry, Russell, Fletcher, etc.) are going to allow Al (the brother Ed sacrificed his life for) to suffer in any way. The boy's practically golden thanks to Ed! He's also golden thanks to his own efforts but he doesn't remember them. biggrin.gif

I try. biggrin.gif I also remembered that Al is always called Al in the movie, never "Ed" nor is he ever referred to by the title "FullMetal" or by any other title.

Also, the biggest thing, is Al is an extremely honest and ethical person and would never steal money from the state by pretending to be Ed. He stops Ed at one point from rummaging through Marcho's belongings because he says it's not right, and in the episode where he runs away from Ed he tells the two Ishbalan kids that "you shouldn't take things that don't belong to you." Just because he's lost his money doesn't mean his fundamental personality would have changed. He was honest before and he'd still be honest after.

Last, many people don't what Ed looked like but THEY do know in general what he looks like ie. blond hair, short, automail arm. It'd be obvious Al isn't him. And also the people in the military DO know what Ed looks like, they've worked around him for several years. They would know Al wasn't Ed as well.

Isn't it cool though? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

yeah, but he'd need SOME watch in order to pass as Ed. He couldn't get access to Ed's money without it I think. When Ed pays Sheska he gives his watch to the guy as proof so he can get the money out. In the Manga he gives his watch, ID number and pin number. Al would need some combination of those three things (and he's lost his memory so he's not going to remember Ed's ID number or pin number) to get at the money AND he'd have to go to central where people know who Ed is and what he looks like. biggrin.gif

Al has a lot of friends and several of them are quite well off financially (Armstrong and Winry/Pinako). At the end of the series Al is 10 years old (he has no memory so as far as he knows he's mentally ten as well) and has no home and no family. Yet, he's well fed, well dressed, and is clearly relaxed and enjoying life. There's no money worries to him because he's being protected and cared for. Even if Al had been a jerk he'd have been taken care of just because everyone knows that's what Ed would want. However, Al has a naturally loving and innocent personality and is the type of person that people just want to take care of. In the movie, Rose endangers herself by tackling Al before he can go through the gate so it's obvious he's cared for.

Another thing, we don't know how long Al's been traveling. It's been two years, at the end of the series we see Rose's baby is quite a bit older so it's clear Al stayed at home with Winry and Pinako for quite a while. Then he goes to Izumi's and trains there for more time. For all we know (and this is just speculation of course) Liore (where he ends up at the beginning of the movie) is the first place he'd traveled in the entire two years.
biggrin.gif

Hey Toby-chan- Yeah, the first time we see Kimbley (in the lab 5 incident) he doesn't clap his hands to use alchemy. His hands are shackled and he just activates the circles on his hands much like Roy does with his gloves and so forth. Then in the episode where Izumi breaks Wrath out of the military compound, Kimbley DOES clap his hands together to blow a hole in the wall. Then later when he tries to kill Al and Martel he doesn't clap his hands to kill that soldier, and he doesn't clap his hands when he turns Al into a bomb before Scar saves him. I guess it's just personal preference. In the Manga, Al loses his memory of what happened in the gate and then, once he regains it, can transmute exactly like Ed can. What's really funny is Ed's reaction to it. He has this little mental image of a scale with taller, better fighter on Al's side and transmute without a circle and brotherly pride (or something like that) on his side. When Al reveals he can transmute without a circle, the scale suddenly tips in Al's favor and Ed nearly passes out because he thinks his brother is now cooler than he is. It's hailarious! biggrin.gif

It think that the reason kimbley doesb't clap his hand is because the circle is already on his hand and he has been activating it for like...forever.

Roy clicking his fingers is his substitute for claping his hand. or else it can't be done.

i do wish to know how al looks like with braids. i also think that al's hair is too long for 2 years. even ed's hair doesn't grow that fast.

plus his cloths, it think one of the reasons why al wore ed's clothes is because he doesn't have any other that fits him XD... kidding
