Anyone ever really sat down and tried to figure out when and where FMA takes place?

I have been in a nice discussion on adultswim's board and I think I am right about the location of Amestris, and a few thoughts on when it takes place....

Well we know from both the manga and anime that when Ed and Al set out on their journey, and Ed first became an alchemist was in 1911. So you can work out from their age approximately what year the series takes place and goes to.

And Amestris is entirely fictional, if you look at the maps of Amestris shown in the anime and manga, it does not resemble any real-world landmass but most people assume that it's based on western-Europe (Germany, Britain, France).

Yeah the Dubbed verion of the Anime really fails to tell you the name of the whole country. They refer to it as the state. They mention it, its just rarely they do.

Well, we do know when it takes place. Itīs around th early 1900, but we donīt exactly know where it takes setting. I always thought that Amestris kind of remembers me of the old Europe though.

And in the Manga doesnīt seem like a real country we know.

Looking at the Acroyan Police,they are heavily based on 1950's British police.Alot of the places a reminisent of Germany/Austria and the State Unifomr seem sheavily European.
The East very much resembles the Middle East.Infact one of the still's of the Ishabal uprising (when Marcoh is explaining how it kicked off) is just an anime version of a photo taken during Laurence of Araibias day IIRC.

Help me out... I'm kinda confused...
I just read the manga and watch the anime and never really mind about the timeline of fma...
I just know that in the fma movie, ed was in the year 1921...

Your logic that Aemtris must be a version a Germany is flawed.
By that logic if I got on a rocket from Russia and landed on Mars I must be in the Martian version of Russia.
Just because he ended up in Germany dosen't mean he started in the Ametris equivlent of it.

Also while I have the floor I'd like to ask if Ed even went to another dimension and didn't just travel through space to Earth.

Amestris is heavily German-based, but it also has a lot of Japanese themes (the food they eat, the swords, and even some of the armor that you see the Blood Sealers have).

Well thats just my opinion tongue.gif
