And, dude, Noad wasn't THAT BAD. I mean, it seems that all of the peeps who saw the movie in Japan HATED Noah. I fell for the poor girl. Practically EVERYONE hated her! ;___;(You have to remember that BOTH Gypses and Jews were being discrimated at that time.) Her life sucked SO MUCH. So, yeah, of course she was gonna do anything to get to the other side of the Gate. And it's not like she truely betrayed Ed or anything. She screamed when Ed was shot remember? >_> Gah, I just don't like all of the Noah hate going around.
Who doesn't mind Noah besides me? ;____;
i don't, never have.
and i don't understand everyones reason except a lot of pple are winxed fans
i actually love her role in the movie, okay so she wasn't as powerful as i thought, nor did she do anything too specific but yes,
she represents to us (and to Ed) the petty hatred, racism, discrimination that the real world (aka all of us) live and deal and inflict on others. all she wanted was to go home and thinking that alchemy world was her own is why she kinda betrayed Ed later in the movie and assisted the woman.
But she adds flavour in a way i've never seen a anime do, didn't u guys think it all too familiar, with Ed being in our
world, what with his driving (badly, lol) and drinking a popular real life scotch, and then all the WW2 history inc and to think, that cause the scientist at the beginning escaped them by performing human transmutation, he went to germany and was the cause of developing the A bomb, lol.
amusing, but a lil scary for them to mix with history like that
nonetheless, 3rd time seeing it, i loved it, was teary and truely touched when Rose dances, (the requium is so symbolic, i'm teary just remembering) i love the music and the disney part (when they all burst into song, lol)
it's another culture/flavour so uncommon in the anime world, FMA, i love you to bits!
ps: glad u guys seem to like it, although to be honest i did like it better 2nd time around, first time i was kinda upset at the annoying loose ends they left.
oh why ed kicked Al's head off, *laughs* (if this is the part i remember right)
sycia translated that in her summery, read it.
but since a few asked, when Al appears in the armour (i don't have the raw to directly tl for you)
but he says something like
'you're still the same height'
Ed then screams and says he's grown a lil bit, before they get shot at and then make their lil escape (i love that part so so so so much!)
