Movie question confusemeeent  

I am confused on how old the characters are. o_o I'm assuming the years are the same from the Alchemic World to ours, right? 1916 = 1916? The series ended 1916 and Al was 10, then randomly went to 1921 where Ed was there. So he's been there for five years? Or is time all weird.

Then the movie's supposed to be in 1923? I think? Two years from the end of the series. Ed was born in 1899, Al in 1900 (according to this timeline in newtype), and Al lost 4/5 years. So wouldn't that make Ed like.. 23/24? o_o;;; And Al like, 19? But wait that's too old. @__@;; And then again the latest interview said like "Two years have passed since Ed entered the 'Real World'..."

Help meee I'm confused sorry if this is stupid. Is it just the years are all weird from world to world?

The time between the "Real World" and Amestris world is different.

The first time Ed went through the Gate, it was 1915 in his world, and 1916 in the real world.

The second time he went through, he wound up in 1921 Munich, while it was still 1915-1916 in Amestris world. Thus, two years later, it's 1923 in Munich and 1917 in Amestris world.

Al is 11 at the end of the anime, Ed was 16. Now Ed is 18 and Al is 13.

o__O;;; That's odd though. The first time he went through, there was a one year gap between worlds. Within the same day/few hours he goes through again, and then there's like a five year gap?

The Gate's special? >.>;;; That's what you get with something that's powered by fangirls evil babies of doom.

o___O;; That's.. odd. Then Al could go through and end up like. In 1950. If the gap goes wonky like that. Oh well. Lala plothole.

Not really. Hohenheim stated how the Gate has no perception of time, and that's why Ed could see both the future and the past. D:

Ohhh okay. Well yay! Thank you both for the help/explainations. <3 *slightly less confused*

pft, you knew the gate was special.
and you also know that those weren't little 'fate' hands or whatever.
they where the fangirl's little molesty fingers.

...yes I'm crazy xD

Wasn't Al 12 by the end of the series? I could have sworn that was the age of his old body. ... ;_; zomg this series is so great but the ages make my head hurt.

Ohh they did the transmutation on their mother in 1910, so Al's old body would be 10 years old yes yes.

There's official art that states that Al is 11 at the end of the series. I'm just going off of what I've read XD;;;;;
