Um, a clarification of my earlier rant: I don't mean to say that Ed's emotions aren't legitimate. I don't think he's reacting wrongly to things, exactly, and I agree with Kirara and Vagrant when they said that it's all part of Ed's character. What bugs me is the *way* it's been portrayed and the *speed* with which Ed is going through all these emotions. It's not Ed's fault, per se, it's just the directorial decision to rush through these episodes, and hence have Ed act like a human pendulum with his emotional reactions. And the director *has* to rush through this, so it's not anything anyone can help. When the pace slows down, the problem is going to disappear, simply by virtue of Ed having more screen time to get over each situation.
And, Vagrant, I'm with you on the whole cutting out of Ed peeking over Winry's shoulder but then, I'm not a fan of EdxWin, so I'm saying this is all purely sibling-y behaviour. Yes yes. None of that lovey-dovey stuff. Denial, I hear it's nice this time of year.
I'm very excited about the appearance of Plot in the next episode!
