Very mad world

Late night stuff *yawn* and episode 5 post.

Well, episode 5 raw has been released by |33t fansubs, and I think they're better than Saiyaman ^^;
You can get it here.

And so...being extremely bored, I took random screenshots of stuff that amused me easily. XD

Oh yea...icons and review thingy under the cuts as well. Credit, etc. if you take icons. They're not that good but, oh well.

Religion in Fullmetal Alchemist

Seeing as I can't offer icons, screencaps or fanart, I figured I could at least contribute some musings: anyone else get the feeling this mangaka has some serious issues with religion to work out?

In other news, an idea I've been playing about with since episode three is the identity of the man with the X on his forehead. I showed FMA to my sister last week, and she took to it instantly (but of course! ^___^ ) However, her entirely unprompted view was that Mr. X was Edward and Alphone's father, an idea I know has been bandied around here - but that I'm going to have to disagree with. Personally, I think it's far more likely that this man is the single successful case of human transmutation as referred to in episode 1(?) when Edward's reciting the chemical components of a human to Rose. Now that I've (finally!) read the fifth chapter, I'm even more convinced that he is the transmuted human. If nothing else, the X on his head just screams of symbolism, marking him as a man who shouldn't exist.

Definitely looking forward to finding out more about the relationship between Edward and Mr. X. Thoughts, anyone?
