Um... I think Ed was more realistic. In a certain way. Looking back at the Barry episode where Ed almost killed him... He admitted that event scared him to hell and back. It was touching in a weird sorta way.
the anime is more human, indeed. especially because they had an applied timeline (Ed turned 16 already... still waiting in the manga). I like how the Elric brothers show that despite their maturity, they are still kids (uhm, i still consider being 15 yrs old as a kid)... not a lot of anime with 15 year old characters could portray this fact so well.

I like the military guys...You know, the people under Roy's command, himself included. Then there's the xing guys. Ling, Lanfan, and the old dude are great characters. Even little Mei-chan. I even like Barry the Chopper. He's too funny with his "little" chopping fetish.

well Ling could left her in Xing, considering his journey is dangerous, then Mei just go out and escaped with her Mei-chan (which is so adorable by the way)then she dreams about tall and sophisticated Ed.. then the real small brat Ed crushed her dreams... remember that she was also lying flat on the ground?

Actualy, when I first saw Mei, I had this notion that she was his fionce (afterall, this is a chinsese based culture and they (chinese) like arranged marriages), and Ling found her too anoying and left her there in Xing for a moments peace... being so dedicated, Mei secretly folowed him, and got lost on the way... and then she decides that if she was going to get Ling's heart then she would have to get the way of immortality for him... and got side tracked thanks to her 'Ed illusion'.

No matter what anyone says, I like Ed. For some reason, I always like the most annoying people in the show. Who is almoot always the main character... Let's name all my favorite characters from different animes... Naruto from Naruto, Tai from Digimon season 1, Yoh from Shaman King, and there are bunches of other characters that I'm too lazy to list. Actually, I think I almost always like the main characters the best because usually, they are the ones most characterized. They also have big dreams that almost seem impossbile... I like that they always try so hard, because I am nothing like them. This was annoyingly long...

Ed and AL naturaly, for different reasons. Everyone's fav homicidal teddy bear Barry. The... there is no word to describe him - Ling. Evil winry and Roy whenever he's not being dignified (wet match, getting squashed in the car, being told off by Riza, the miniskirts, phonecalls with Hughes)

I love Ed, he's so cute and he's the sweetest guy in the world.. even though he tries to act tough and mean sometimes, he's sooo nice to Al and besides, I love his attidtude and his ego. I reckon it's really cute.
