Is it ironic that I had to sit through a grueling chemistry test, work hours of labor, give a psychology presentation on dreams, and eat a piece of pie before I could get my hands on a computer to read the ending? Yeah, but I was really scared I was going to blurt out "OMFG IT'S OVER!" right in the middle of my presentation!
FMA has really been almost like a teacher to me. (Lame maybe but stick with me here...) It's taught me a lot of things about being human and accepting imperfections within yourself in the world. The main bad dude is obsessed with perfection and ends up defeated while Ed gives up his powers and ends up happy and content. It makes a person happy for just being ordinary, because that seems to be what Hiromu herself values! What made me happiest about the whole ending was when Ed said to the truth "I have always been an ordinary person". We are all ordinary people, and can simply be happy with what we are - not gods - but humans. That's a powerful thing for a fantasy/sci-fi manga artist to say! *sniffle*
I read this with my friend at her house, and now her dad won't stop making fun of my reaction to it all. Let's just say it involved a ton of screaming/squealing and squeezing my Roy plushie for moral support. And now the poor man has to take us to an anime convention.
Now I just need to find another manga good enough to replace FMA in my life... still working on that.
