alrighty, i just recently got the Fullmetal Alchemist pocketwatch. but, me and my sister happened to notice something. The pocketwatch says "Don't fotget 3. Oct. 11" but, in the anime, it says "Don't forget 3. Oct. 10" i was wondering, if, this seems odd to anyone else, i'm curious as to if, there is a mistake. i has the Fullmetal Alchemist logo on the back, and it is the EXACT one. but, yet, it says a different date. if anyone could help me, PLEASE! im VERY confused.

The real date is 3. Oct 11 cuz it is from manga, in the anime i think they mistaken the date.. in some timeline Bones mistaken something >.>;
altought the two dates are Ok but i prefer Oct 11 cuz it refers to the manga

The real date is Oct. 11. 0.o Both my manga and anime say Oct 11, I thought, and the zero would stand out; harder to etch in. No worries, as long as "fotget" is a typo of yours.

The anime says that? Then what's this, may I ask?

I have the pocketwatch too, also the one imported from Hong Kong, and I never paid much attention to the date. I guess like hikusa_rgx said, just different timelines or something. -shrug-

As long as it doesn't have a "double 11" (an 11 with a superscript 11) then I think you're ok.

Aw, crap, are you serious?! I think mine has that... ;_; -runs off to check-
xbeccaxchanx on July 28th, 2005 02:19 am (UTC)

in the manga it has a different date (3. oct. 11) 'cause they burned their house AFTER Ed got his national alchemist license... in the anime its 3. oct. 10 'cause they did it BEFORE they went to central city to do the exam

That and the anime completely messed with the manga timeline, like giving Ed the same birthday as Elisha (even though they aren't supposed to be born on the same day =P).

lol I just wish the compass thingy actually worked... but it just has a picture of one. XD Does the "official" one that's like $300 have a working compass?

On my knockoff watch I traded chains with my other friend who got a Final Fantasy watch at the same con XD
桐生ユリナdefade on July 28th, 2005 02:38 am (UTC)
It was based on the manga. In the manga, Ed burned his house AFTER he got the pocket watch, so it's Oct. 11

*checks her* Well I got a fake >.
Get Ready.megamialchemist on July 28th, 2005 03:01 am (UTC)

just like ppl said already - it's because the original date from manga is 3. Oct. 11" :9 (heh, and that's the only version i consider a good one :P)
Pip: deviouspropaganda_live on July 28th, 2005 05:24 am (UTC)
Right, so now that we're on the subject of pocket watches and manga vs. anime, doesn't the manga also say it's a gold watch, or was that some crazy typo when it was translated into english (the spot I'm thinking of is pp.117 in the English Volume 1)?
Jiah Pet: Just Add Water!jiah on July 28th, 2005 03:48 pm (UTC)
Yeah, Viz is dumb and said it was gold :\
Pip: edpropaganda_live on July 28th, 2005 04:30 pm (UTC)
I have to say that doesn't suprise me, lol
Captain Chrismyuutsuuman on July 28th, 2005 08:10 pm (UTC)
Might I point out that even the scanlators goofed up and ALSO said it was gold? >_> It's easy to goof up "gin" and "kin."

I've read that the pocket watch that has the Oct. 11 date is a bootleg, and I think if you got it from Hong Kong that may just re-inforce the possibility of it. I believe only the official ones were made with the Oct. 10 date, and not the Oct. 11. *Shuffles back into lurking now*

yeah, as people are saying...

theres two versions, an 11, and a 10. However, the "apparently bootleg" version of 11 says 1111, and the real one just says 11.
