~ 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.
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...
