or maybe that ed and al are brothers maybe he felt like they are not the only ones in the series that should be brothers.
Um, maybe it's just me being a bit dim, but I don't really understand what you're trying to say. sorry!
The idea that this reinforces the theme of brotherhood makes sense, and i feel a bit dumb for not realizing this. Maybe it's also a bit of a backlash on Arakawa's part, I read that she has four sisters, so maybe she just wanted a change...
