A weird point.  
So due to a recent post in the community which shows the new Animage scans ( as seen here ), I came to notice something slightly offish that I don't think anyone else has quite picked up on yet. If they have, my apologizes I over looked it. Anyway, check out what I notice and tell me I'm not going crazy ... or prove me wrong. Spoilers abound, that should go without saying.

All right so anyway - the thing that stands out to me the most in the new Animage scans are namely about Hughes, with all the talk about something being up with Hughes I can't help but keep my eye on him. That's when I noticed as I was looking over the scan that something didn't seem quite right. Then it hit me like a ten ton weight. His eyes. His eyes are still gold. Now why you ask is this a weird issue, Hughes eyes are gold! Well, yes -- Hughes does have gold eyes in Ed's World, but in the Alternate World aka "Our World" people don't have gold eyes except for Hohenheim and Edward - people who have crossed through the gate from Ed's World into ours. Even post series Al you can see he doesn't have Blue eyes like Our World Al.

Maybe it's just me... but~ I thought it was a point worth bringing to light, since we spent a good portion of an anime episode viewing it through Ed's eyes. Something that seems like a small detail but things often get over looked in this series and get thrown back in your face later. I just wanted to hear some other opinions about this. Seriously, am I going crazy for nothing?

Much love to asuki for quickly clipping these shots of Ed and Al together, she rocks. <3

There is hope for the Hughes fans out there! :O

As much as I'd love to get our Hughes back, I have to say that would be very stupid and a plothole we really don't need. Hoho and Ed went through the Gate with their bodies while Hughes's body is rotting underground, so it can't be on the other side. Er, unless you're saying Hughes' soul went to his alter's body like it happened to Ed? But I don't like that much either.

I'm not really saying anything, just making a valid point. The eyes. I can accept a character's death just fine, but this is making me creeped out regardless. Something as the masses seem to be saying "is up with Hughes". Whatever the hell that means.

I don't mind being wrong in the least, I just think it's odd to see an Our World character with a not so normal eye color, as were all the other our world people have normal ( blue, brown, hazel, green ) colors. That's really the point I'm bringing up for dicussion.
Kalika Maxwellkalikamaxwell on June 14th, 2005 12:44 am (UTC)
Oh, sorry, I didn't mean to say I think you're wrong. Bones brought us terminator!Archer so I can't put anything past them. I'm just tearing my hair out at how plothole-ish that would be.
devils_devotion on June 14th, 2005 05:45 am (UTC)
...Seconding the Fullmetal!Archer bit. I wouldn't put it PAST Bones, but, erm, I wouldn't really forgive them, either. ^^;;

Urg, why wasn't Hughes' death more POIGNANT?! *grumble* Then we might not've had the fruitless urge to wish he'd return... Or, you know, that urge would've multiplied threefold. O.o

What color were London!Ed's eyes? (I don't want to go to the episode and check, since I have a paper to write, and my procrastination would only get worse...) Because I'm sort of assuming he's the our world version of Ed, and that movie!Ed is in his Edworld body. Didn't London!Ed have all his limbs?

I mean, if there's more than one Ed double running around, then I fear for the future... o.O;
Feria: [Hagaren] Hellowithout_reason on June 14th, 2005 01:04 am (UTC)

He's dead though, so there will be only one Ed running around. ^^;

slitherer-outergazelle on June 14th, 2005 01:12 am (UTC)
Yeah, I know he's dead. There would have been two at one point, though, if Ed had been put into an Earth body, instead of keeping his own.

But I just wanted to check, since him having gold eyes means that normal humans can have gold eyes in our world too, not just weirdos like Ed and Hohopapa. So Hughes having gold eyes isn't suspect. (That doesn't mean I don't think there's something up with him...)

hagaren world al has grey eyes. our world al has blue eyes.

His eyes look the same to me... It's just the coloring and the clothing that make it seems more gold-ish.

The first full day in Tokyo, this is what we're seeing. I'm glad I don't have to endure a few days of seeing posters and agonizing. X.X

But I think I kinda want Hughes to be a bad guy, it'd certainly put Ed into an interesting position. But I'm just sick like that.

Actually, Ed'sWorld!Hughes has green-gold eyes, while Ourworld!Hughes seems to have golden-brown eyes.

So I don't think they're the same person, but I'm sure Ourworld!Hughes is going to be quite important.
devils_devotion on June 14th, 2005 05:47 am (UTC)
I bet he's a member of Interpol or Scotland Yard! XDDDDD

(If they were even around back then. I'm just amused at the image of a British Hughes. Ha. *shot*)

Indeed, Hughes's eyes are a really bright green, and I HAVE seen people with eyes of a similar colour. From what I can see, his eyes haven't changed hue(ghes? sorry X3) much at all.

>> That makes me feel a little better maybe it's just the scan and the fact that I was up at like 3 am looking at it that threw me off. ~_~ *still half asleep* I'd rather be wrong - it made me all twitchy.

Have you guys thought about it, that you usually can't tell a character's eye color by scans and not even screenshots if said eye color is green?? On my monitor, Hughes' eyes are green. At a friend, he seems to have golden eyes. In the school, he had greenish-golden. It really depends on the monitor.

Ahh, I managed the second (our world Hughes) Here in the office, he has beautiful green eyes! XD
miki05 on June 14th, 2005 07:55 am (UTC)
So what basically you are saying from the last post is that, it is a possibility for people in our world to have gold eyes. (Since Alter Ed? And Alter Hughes has it) Still even if he did transfer his soul to that other world (which would be freaky considering Hughes never learn alchemy and he is dead...) Um...that Alter Hughes might actually be a good guy? Hmm...

The eyes mean NOTHING! You all are FREAKS! Freaks, I tell you!

But Hughes' glasses... they look different... his glasses went through the door! :O

I'm sorry, I'm just being a smartass... *Shot*
