This show has such subtlety- visual and verbal pauses can really say a lot.
(Ed/Armstrong/Station attendant, Ed/Grandfather, etc.
A few questions and observations (sorry in advance for lameness
1.) What the HECK is LUST, and the rest of the other 7 DEADLY SINS?
Are they human?
They have tattoos
, and appear able to do Alchemical Transmutations- BUT ON/IN THEIR BODIES
, unlike a "regular" alchemist, who seems to "influence" OUTSIDE OF
(I understand revealing a lot of this right now could qualify as one helluva SPOILER
, for most of us just starting out with FMA on Cartoon Network... so, if no one answers, well... that's OK.) Just curious.
2.) Al's soul is in the armour, right? Where the heck IS IT
I mean,... is it in the amour's METAL
? Contained in the EMPTY SPACE
inside the armour?
Is it like an AURA
When that kid stole the armour, then put it on- I was, like... WHAT THE... ( ! ), AL'S STILL IN THERE!!
I didn't think anyone could put the armour on, while Al's essence was contained somewhere within it.
3.) You can tell Roy's superior is up to something
Cliffhangers at the show's end are storyline stock-in-trade,... but, OH MAN, they're KILLERS!
Especially, for a show that seems to go by SO FAST
(time flies when yer havin' fun... )
And THEN,.. you gotta wait a whole week for a new episode! (No,.. I'm not complainin'
Yeah, he's up to something... anyone wanna venture a guess?
Is the ARMSTRONG CLAN
one HUGE, ONGOING EUGENICS EXPERIMENT!!
Let's lock up Hughes and Armstrong in a room, let them talk to each other about their families- Ad Nauseaum
, and let's see who keels over first!
5.) Yeah,... Al really got to shine- in a really funny light, in this episode! Great!
I also think Ed had a strong, decisive moment of clarity, there at the table, with Gramps.
