In conqueror of shambala, Alphonse has transmutation circles on gloves, that let him perform any kind of alchemy without new circles kinda like Ed, what's up with that?

I'm still yet to watch eps 43 - 51, did I miss something?

Guys, Guys, GUYS?!?!?

*Spoiler alert*
Has everyone except xHearter forgotten that you can perform alchemy without a transmutation circle once you have seen the GATE?!?! And Al obviously did, he said so - Edward brought back his body from behind that gate, right? So that explains Als alchemy without a circle. After all, their teacher could do it too, she was at the gate because of her baby.

I think the circles on his gloves are just some sort of symbol or something. Maybe he just wears them because they remind him of his brother (Ed always wore some, right? To hide his metal hand...?)

As for Roy Mustang: He doesn't perform alchemy like you or I (haha -.-'). He snaps his fingers, and because of the synthetic fibres in his gloves, a spark appears. (Nothing to do with alchemy yet.) Then he changes the air around him in order to make the spark bigger. That spark isn't alchemy, anyone could do it with gloves like that. what makes Roy an alchemist is the changing of air - whatever he does with it. Maybe he is able to do that because of circles in his gloves, or maybe, he, too, has seen the gate. That, I don't know. But I do believe that Al doesn't need transmutation circles on his gloves to perform alchemy.

And as for Al being a state alchemist - I don't think he is one. Firstly, he never wanted to become a "dog of the military", as Ed put it. He wanted to be free. And secondly - in the movie, when Ed is finally back in their world and they're fighting on that aircraft - Mustang shows up and keeps calling Ed "Full Metal", his title. Then, when Al runs after his brother, Mustang doesn't say anything. One could read between the lines here that Al doesn't have a title at all. That would make sense, since Mustang says "Full Metal" (with an emphesis on it!) three times in total in that short time - and nothing at all to Al. Of course, you could argue that he doesn't say "Alphonse" either - he just doesn't call Al anything - but if Al were a state alchemist Mustang would definitely have said something to him. That's why I doubt that Al is in fact a state alchemist.

Well, that's just my opinion - hate me for it if you must ^^
