Eh, it's hard to say. I feel confident that all of the people of Amestris will be brought back somehow. I don't think a story where just everyone dies could be a story Hiromu Arakawa could be proud of. I dunno, it just seems... off.

Well, we all have to remember that it's a shonen manga, so it isn't really a romance-reliant thing. So, I think that it would be a little shojo-ish sweet to have an ending with all the characters "getting together" with someone. But I DO want EdxWinry. I don't THINK that Arakawa will dissapoint us there. Unless Winry gets kills off. Ooooh..... knock on wood. XD

There was actually a lunar eclipse on March 1, 1915 around 6pm. I'm not sure if it was the homunculi that said it, but i recall there being a few references to the "Promised Day" occurring in spring. March is in spring.

Edward was born on February 3, 1899, so during 1915 Edward would be 16, his age at the current point in the manga. Even if his birth date was not revealed, he burnt down his house on October 3, 1910 shortly after becoming the youngest state alchemist ever at the age of 12. This would put his age during 1915 in between 16-17.

Also on chapter 103 it shows that its dark outside shortly before the eclipse occurs on page 1. http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/103/001/

I'm not sure if anyone else has already pointed it out due to me quickly glancing over the thread... but I just thought this would be a tasty tidbit to know.


If that is the case, I love Arakawa that much more smile.gif
Knowing her, this probably actually would be true.

If she really got inspired from that for this too, my respect for the woman will sky-rocket like crazy, not that it isn't already skyhigh but... this... seriously.

Thanks for the info smile.gif

The fact that all the citizens are ''dead'' is weird to me... It has to have something for saving all those people. I don't want to see a end like this where all the characters are dying without a good reason ! I love FMA since the begining. Like every fans of the serie, I want a good end to it ! The writer can't let us like that ! Come on ! If you look closer to the chapter, you can see that all the persons really important to those who survived are dead. It doesn't look fishy to you ? I hate the fact that the writer added a so sad scene of Winry falling down pronuncing the name of her love before she totally colapse.. It makes me so fustred ! I assure you that it has to have a good reason for making us that sort of almost end !

Actually the year the brothers burned down their house was 1911, not 1910, in the manga. It was 1910 in the first anime due to the two stories having massively different timelines.

Where has Arakawa said that Ed's birthday is February 3rd? I only remember her mentioning in interviews that Ed was born somewhere in the winter.

I thought for a second that Father stole Al's body as a new container lol, just thought I'd put that out there.

I thought that, too. After all for the first time he used container, the king of Xerxes' body. And changed it shape. D:


LOL Same here! But yeah, then I realized Al's body would've been all emaciated and stuff, not super buff. I think that's like, evil-young-Hohenheim?


First off, I'm sooooo glad that I finally found someone that had that same thought. I didn't want to say too much because I didn't want to be that person that went tooo far out on a limb to suggest that. I originally thought that because of a comment that Al's body made to Al in chapter 102 on page 38, which says, "However, your return may bring nothing but despair and ruin, Alphonse." Which would make sense if the body that Al wanted so much, but didn't take, would make its appearance in a manner that would destroy every thing he loves.

I also thought about the whole emaciated vs. buff body too, but if he has the power of God, I assumed that that power would "buff" out his body.

I'm pretty sure that's not Al; the face (especially eye shape) is all wrong.

Not even talking about the body, the face isn't even a question, IMO- while it looks a little like Al (thanks to family resemblance) it looks EXACTLY like Slave 23.

Besides, I took the while "However, your return may bring nothing but despair and ruin" bit more literally- i.e. his returning from the gate to Father's lair gave Father exactly what he needed, the fifth sacrifice.

She replied that a mentor of hers told her that numbers tend to limit the imagination, or something like that. She really took that to heed and left the actual birthdays out. She does say that Ed's birthday is during the winter, but then she jokingly says that it always snows in Japan. So, it's not much of a help. dry.gif

I'd say Feb. 3rd is a pretty good estimate.

Am I the only one who has caught on to the fact that Father's new body is made up of the tolls the five sacrifices lost to the Truth?

Doesn't that kind of explain why they were "sacrifices" and why out of the entire country they were the only ones who even lost something like that?

I thought it was just a younger, more fit Hoho body. If he had the five sacrifices' parts, wouldn't he have eyes that look like Roy's? Or Izumi's girly parts? Besides, Al gave up his whole body, so what would he need the other body parts for if he already had a whole body put together to begin with?

His body looks so much like young Hohenheim's that I think it either is, or will end up being something completely unexpected.
