al forgot about what happened for four years, and everyone probably told him stories about ed, so he probably really was amazed by what ed did. so al might have wanted something to remind himself of ed. i'm not sure though.

Well,I love Al's movie appearance.It's cool,and cute at the same time.I think the reason Al's wearing Ed's clothes is to remember him by,because Al remembers his brother,even though he lost memory of a lot of the story.Either way,I love Al's human form so much more than his armor.I've never been a big fan of suits of armor,anyway.

i didn't care, because, well, i kind of agree, it makes al look a lot like ed and makes him look more professional, but on the other hand, it makes ed look kind of sad and not flamboyant when they meet...

I think it was another example of the no creativity nonsense that this movie represents. Sorry I'm a hater well more of a strongly disliker. I don't know I was hoping Al would come into his own, or maybe have some very subtle nod at his armor look maybe even have slicked back hair and a pony tail coming out the end kinda like the helmet a little bit.

And, if you have the combination of pics and text then the combined total should stay within 300 pix high. Your current sig pic is 345 pix, and a bit too tall for our board. You can shrink it a bit, right? Thanks!! ~ Board staff :)

I down-right loved it. Alphonse really looked like he was following Edward's footsteps. Besides, if Hiromu Arakawa had to make an entirely new costume design for Alphonse and it was like amazing, then that would be a waste if it was only for show in one movie. It makes more common sense for Alphonse to wear something similar to his older brother's outfit, and I think that had fit his character anyway since he's already similar to Edward.

I think at that point when Al lost his memories, he was told all these great stories of their adventures and what of Ed did. It's Al's homage to Ed and following in his footsteps. Maybe a bit too similar, but the general idea behind it was nice.

I liked Al's new look, though I also thought it was Ed at first. I thought Ed had crossed dimensions or something. XD I also like that Al has a hairstyle similar to how it was when he was young, with the hair curved on the side more. Also I thought the clothes were a bit different, I wouldn't say an exact copy. But I wished Ed would have kept the braid so he looked more similar to his appearance in the series. so they'd compliment each other more, course Ed might have stuck out in Germany. XD

I thought Al, wearing Ed's clothes, looked AWESOME!!!!! In my opinion, Al looks so cute wearing Ed's old clothes (If thats what they are). I think Al should have kept the ponytail! He looked so much better than he did at the end of the movie! I think Ed's clothes suited him. Made him look.... much more older and mature? Much better than his short hair and normal clothes! XD
