I got a question that the wikipedia article on FMA inspired: We all know that in the anime Envy was once a man so many consider him well... a him. HOWEVER in the manga its suggested that he (and maybe other homunculus) are genderless.

So is Envy male or nothing in the Manga?

According to the profile books, Envy's a female in the anime, and genderless in the manga. But both the anime and the manga have called Envy a male, so... I just go along with male, since his body type leans more toward male than female and because of what he used to be.

I have heard that Envy refers to him/herself as 'it' in the original manga, implying that it is genderless. It's true form doesn't imply a gender as far as I can tell.

- my two cents .

OH GAWD! I had heard in the anime profile book Envy was called female xD
Anyway thanks for answering me smile.gif
Now since I'm a fan of all the homunculi I may as well ask if we know about the age of them all.
I know Greed suggests in the manga he's about 200 and we know Bradley is 60. We know that Pride is oldest, followed by Lust, Envy,Greed(200),Sloth,Gluttony,Wrath(60),new!Greed(0).
So anyone have an estimation for the other 5? Also did I get the order right lol?

Want to know something fun? According to Hagaren DX, Envy himself (sounds better than 'it') isn't sure of his own gender XD
So the official answer is technically neither biggrin.gif

Speaking of Vol 15, I was just flipping through it and noticed 'Solf' J. Kimblee's introduction as the 'Red Lotus Alchemist.' Considering they introduced him as the Crimson Alchemist several volumes ago.... where the heck did this come from?? Is it some alternate translation of his name from Japanese or is it just Viz's propensity for errors?

I noticed this too. I'm going to give Viz the benefit of the doubt and say that some of the names can be debated as to what the proper translation is. "Zolf" is close to "Solf," and they have close to the same pronunciation. Similarly, "Riza" was translated as "Lisa," which could possibly be her intended name considering Arakawa's intent was to (I assume) choose realistic English names; and the letter "L" isn't in the Japanese alphabet. As for the "Red Lotus Alchemist..." I can't say, but it seems to me that this is too literal of a translation on Viz's part. I also think it's obvious Viz doesn't even bother to correlate itself at all with the anime.

I just recently got the 15th volume, too, and i was also confused by "The Lotus Alchemist". I don't even know what that means. Sometimes VIZ translations annoy me to death...I didn't even notice Barry and Slicer were edited out...I'll have to take a look at that later. i don't know why'd they bother changing something so unimportant!

~ Manga Rose Question ~


I've really have tried to find the answers on my own without having to start a new post, but I can't find definite answers.

I have two questions regarding Rose.

1. It is implied that she's raped and that's why she now has a child in the anime. I read on Wikipedia (oh so reliable) that in the manga she doesn't make another appearance until very late, chapter 76 or something? I was curious if the hypothesized rape occurred in the manga as well.

2. In the anime it is unclear if she was under hypnosis when she came on to Edward or if those were her true feelings. What exactly is her stand in the manga? New guy after whatshisface/likes Edward/no romantic interest what-so-ever?

I really want to know about the first question because although it's just a show, and even more, an anime, rape reheheheheHEALLY bothers me.

Thanks in advance for any posts answering my questions.

Needless to say... CHAPTER 76 SPOILERS AHEAD. It's nothing crucial to the plot as a whole, but you may want to enjoy reading the manga yourself, it's really worth it. cool.gif

No, the rape doesn't occur in the manga - Rose is (fortunately) unharmed as far as I can tell, and when we see her she's surprisingly joyful for all the horrible things going on. And no, there's no hint of any Ed/Rose.. actually we get to see her only when Hohenheim visits Lior. Small Hoho/Rose hints, if you count Hoho helping Rose in the kitchen as a hint, but I doubt there's anything serious. In the context of the manga, and especially the turn things have taken, I wouldn't bet on Hoho/anyone at the moment...

Re: Manga Rose Question

There is probably some slight Rose->Ed hints in chapter 80, though XD; If you count that as a hint, that is...

Okay, really stupid question, but I'm writing an FMA fanfic and I want to make sure I have all the details straight. smile.gif Was Maria Ross in the Ishbal war (in either anime-verse or manga-verse)?

~ Why does Lust (FMA-1) lose her heritage (i.e. her skin color changed) when she becomes a Homunculus? ~

Yeah why? From what we can tell at least the Homunculi characters look similar to how they looked as humans, other than Sloth (FMA-1) losing her wavy hair (unless she straightens it), so why would Lust lose her Ishbalan qualities/heritage (i.e. darker skin)?
(I'm talking about Homunculi in FMA-1 anime, btw)

Are all Homunculi meant to look pale like ghosts or something?

Good question, there are some FMA-1 Homunculi that look pale such as Lust, Sloth, Wrath and Envy if you consider his whiter skin.
However, Pride, Gluttony and Greed have fleshy colored skin.

I would think the paleness was to show they were "not" human and up until we knew their true origin, something otherworldly or supernatural.

Maybe it is because Dante made those 3 homunculi (Pride, Gluttony, & Greed) that they do not look like Ghosts, otherwise I find it to be another contradiction with the anime.

Oh wow, that is a good point I never thought about Dante making the Homunculi that looked different.

But I don't know if I can agree the homunculi's skin is paler than normal.
Besides Lust, the only homunculus we can compare to their human form of the same age is Trisha Elric, but does Sloth's/Juliet Douglas' and Trisha Elric's (in the picture below keep in mind her pic is "in the shadows" making her seem a bit darker, and if sloth was really supposed to be so pale, wouldn't she be almost pure white?) skin tones really differ that much? I don't think so, as you can see below.

Comparing to Sloth's former (human) form.. i.e. Trish Elric
Comparing to Sloth's current human form... i.e. Juliet Douglas



And therefore I still see Lust as the only one with paler ski.
(although I admit the homunculi's skin is pale, I don't think it is abnormally pale).
