Someone tell then why Hohenheim on earth looks liek Hohenheim in FMA world and also has the same rotting body. woopee doo.
The Hoenheim on Earth is dead, he died 400 years ago. He was thrown through the gate by Dante, his entire body went through.
What if Hohenheim comes from Earth ?
He may be Philippus Auréolus Théophratus BOMBAST VON HOHENHEIM,
1493-1541, a famous physician and alchemist. He lived in Switzerland and was known for his research on the Philosophal Stone and on homonculus.
He may have come through the gate into FMA world four centuries ago and met Dante.
That will explain two things :
- How well he knows our world. Even Dante knows nothing about the world behind the gate. And Hohenheim needed only a short amount of time to live in our world.
- Why his body is decaying ? But there is another explanation for this phenomenom. The weakening of the spirit is the reason of the decay. And getting a new corpse in the other world shan't be very different of transferring his spirit with the philosophal stone.
For the moment, I find FMA quite entertaining and logical.
I haven't seen any plotholes for the moment.
Even the different effects of the former body of the homonculus are logical. In fact it's normal that the homonculi don't have the same reaction every time.
If something very hot or cold is thrown at you, you won't react the same way everytime ; you can scream, be shocked, even faint or endure the pain (for that you will need every bit of adrenaline).
Only Full Metal Archer has disappointed me, not in the early 20th century mood of the anime.
