She's weak because
-What kind of dumb*** do you need to be to belive some creepy priest can bring the dead back just like that without even getting anything in return because they're sooo good and they're such saints??
Father Cornello gave weekly displays of his power. Turning a stump into a giant iron statue is a pretty convincing trick so you can't seriously hold it against Rose. Billions of people believe in Religions with far less evidence backing them than Cornellos church.
-If you follow a bunch of military guys when you're alone and you're a young girl you musn't be very smart.
1) She was taken by force,
2) Even if this wasn't the case these people weren't going to give her a choice. If she had refused odds are she would have been shot.
-She tried to save other kids from getting raped or something, yes that's very nice but haven't you ever heard of what a PLAN is?
Her whole village has been thrown into chaos, she managed to find a relativity safe hiding place and save some kids. You do better in a war zone.
-She cries sooo much - _ - it's ok to cry but errr.... *looks at 400 ton pile of tissues*
Yeah, it's not like her whole life and belief system had just come crashing down around her head...oh wait, it did!
-Everyone here knows this, in fact it's the first thing my parents told me : NEVER TRUST STRANGERS.
Which stranger are you referring to?
The kindly Preacher who has saved the Village and brought them prosperity?
The odd young boy and the guy in armour who claim the religion is false without evidence?
The military who took her by force (in more ways than one)?
Be more specific please.
-Another thing that is kind of like the last thing trust no one.
Ed trusted Roy therefore Ed must be weak...
-I agree it's hard to resist a 400 year olf alchemist but then why doesn't she start looking out for herself and use that little thing in her head called brain and say, oh until today I have not thought about how much weaker (physically) I am than alchemists, it's not safe because there's many things I don't know and overall faces we see hearts we don't, so I think I'll get far away from them for a while then plan if I want to know how and who they are,
I don't even begin to understand this.
Rose went through a traumatic experience and was in shock. This means she was unable to think clearly. You can't blame her for following someone who offered her protection and looked after her.
-Her life wasn't going anywhere, it's isn't going anywhere and probably it won't be going anywhere, what does she do all days? doesn't she have plans for her life? like I need to do something, I dunno maybe she can start a donations for the poor center or she can learn to do something or go to school or learn the way to treat with people, what kind is good, what kind is bad etc.
It's never said how her life was doing except that she was apparently happier and her boyfriend/brother (depending on translations) had died.
As for the donations statement, she helps out at the church. She appears to only be a few years older than Ed (about 16-17) so you can't blame her for apparently having no plans. Besides, none of that was a sign of weakness.
-All her reactions are stupid, very naive. nice has nothing to do with stupid.
Again, nothing to do with weakness...
All you've basically said is "Why didn't she know what the viewer knew and act in a more heroic fashion?"
