<Edited to add "in episode 4" to the thread title to better describe the content of this thread. 02/21/07 ~Tombow>

So, I was just watching episode 4 again and I've come to the conclusion that it is by far my least favorite episode in the series. Majahal was a totally unnecessary side character and the whole "oops I bumped my head" explanation for what happened to Karin was utter crap.

But really, my reason for starting this thread was a question raised by what Majahal said to Ed (see topic description). Did Majahal actually attempt human transmutation? and if so... [spoiler] why isn't there a homunculus that looks like Karin? [/spoiler]

If anyone has an answer to this, that would be awesome! Otherwise, I guess it's just a contradiction I'll have to deal with.

Very, very interesting question.

Now, Majahal first tryed to "ressurect" Karin using alchemy. When that failed, he tried to attach other townsgirls souls to dolls.

FMA contradicts itself alot (ex: homunculus is a doll to the whole human transmutaion thing). One thing you can do is just ignore it. This episode is so irrelevent to the plot it's not even funny.

Second, my theory: Majahal was trying to ressurect Karin and nobody else, but Karin was alive, thus it failed from the start and no humonculus was born.

Third, spoiler (don't know how to make the box)

Dante didn't nessesarily know Majahal or his love Karin, she knew about or made all the others and thus fed them the "red stones". Maybe Dante had no idea that Karin existed, and the homunculus withered until it was no more.

Ed: You're...Izumi's...
Wrath: ...I'm Wrath

Hey! Sorry to whoever i stole this avy from. I've been on so many FMA boards and i'm not sure which one i got it from so if it's from this one and you have a problem with me using it then contact me and ill get rid of it.
