@Summoner Colette - Those are cute pics!! Thanks for posting them!!!
Here is a translation of one of your pics!! [attachment=7621:c_sukamei1.jpg]
Mei: "His face looks scary, but his is a good kind man!!"
Scar: *Let's keep the town clean!!* *Picks up trashes* *Gives to the charity (red cross)* *Kind to the old man (that's Grumman!! XDD)* *Let me take your hand!!* *Carry your bag??* Old man: *Oh, thank you!!*
Yoki: "What??!!" *Who??!!*
XDD Thanks for the translation, Tombow! It sounds like something Arakawa would say, that's for sure.

^ Yeah, Mei can be bratty in a way sometimes. But, I guess that helps sometimes, dealing with being out in the foreign land by herself at that young age with a mission. And, I assume some of her attitude is coming from her social status, like how she treated RanFan when they first met. And, her sometimes naive way of thinking is probably coming from her young age and lack of life experience, I guess. Especially about her fixed view on her dream boyfriend. XDD Like most of FMA characters she has her imperfections, but I think her heart is in a good place, and she provides many comic moments with her unrealistic pursuit of her dream mate. XDD And, I think she will have some important role in the remaining chapters of FMA manga.

Imperfect? I don't think so. She's too perfect. Somehow I think Arakawa accidentally made her a Mary Sue. But still, it's sweet seeing her and Scar together sometimes. Reminds me of Sesshoumaru and Rin.
And the first time I saw her name, I kinda got a heart attack. It's my mother's name for Hoenheim's sake... Oh mommy, mommy...

My opinion of Mei Chan is somewhere between "I like her" and "Meh." I think she's very cute, and I really like the way she interacts with the other characters (especially Ed; their interaction is usually hilarious), but I think she seems a bit out-of-place in FMA.

...But yes the fandom seems to have an irrational dislike for Mei & Winry. I suspect because they don't meet their messed up idea of how a strong female character should be.
I like Mei as well. I can understand why some people might not like her, but I really don't get the irrational hatred directed at her by certain parts of the fandom.
There seems to be one in every anime fandom, unfortunately. A female character that is singled out by the fangirls and hated on for no good reason And it's always girls that do the hating as well. Thankfully that seems to be minimal on this forum.

The entire fandom hates Mei. See the anime/manga fandom picks certain girls from every anime series and just hates on them. For dumb reasons too. It's the way of life.
i love all female characters... except for Fiory from the game, I guess. can't really uderstand why should they hate may and winry... they're both strong young ladies!! may maybe a bit childish but she's smart and brave, winry is yes, a cry baby sometimes but she's a great girl too (well not as great as riza, i think )!! she's ed's 'woman'. or maybe those fandoms hate them because of having a big attention from ed and al? jealous? hmm.. i even found a site when the owner blabbing around telling all winry's bad sides and even winry grew too fast in bath scene in book 20. (you know what i mean)

Goodbye, Fullmetal Alchemist. Thanks for the memories.
-the manga, characters, story lines, the ending, the Brotherhood series, the first anime and the movie and all things related to it, are the only things that I will always love like how I love my own life.-

I love that girl! She's funny, adorable, clever, nice and heartwarming. But the ending confused me a little...was May living with the Elrics or something? She was shown with Alphonse, and I actually kind of doubt she'd want to go back to Xing...

I think Arakawa included Mei in the family portrait because she was hinting that she and Al had some type of relationship. (AlMei - 'tis canon!) This could be that Al brought Mei back with him, you never know. btw, are we allowed to discuss chapter 108 topics on other threads now?
