.... very... unexpected ending... I don't think anybody saw this coming, I certainly don't, and I do believe this is one of the very few endings that neatly collect all existing fanfics and drop-kick them all into the AU field. Hrmph. And hey, calintz was right, Ed did gave up his braid and use ponytail instead!
Nevertheless, quite a satisfying end, it managed to wrap up some very important issues nicely, and some aspects it wrapped up *very* satisfactorily indeed. Very rare for an anime for which the originating manga's ending is not yet known. I can't wait to see how the manga will do its own ending.
What do you all think?
