FMA #51 and fanfics... (minor spoiler)  
Ehh... watched 46 straight through to 51, patted self in the back after finishing 50 and congratulated self for *waiting* until 51 came out before watching....

.... 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?

well... you can argue that this is sort of a happy ending, since the main goal was accomplished, and even the secondary goal for a short while (what's with that anyhow? why did the arm just disappear? unless those limbs attached were not Ed's but alchemy construct, then i can understand if it disappears in our alchemy-less world). The fact that they're not in the same worlds when it's all done, and Al's lost his memory... well, nit-picky, at least they're not dead :D

But yeah, I'm wondering what's gonna happen in the movie. I wonder if they're going to try for a happy ending in a >2 hr show? (btw, now Ed's clothes in the movie was explained)
