Yesterday I’ve read in someone’s post that she/he liked manga!Al more than the Al from the TV or the movie. And I thought that there could be an interesting discussion about differences in characters. For example, manga!Ed is a bit more polite and a lot more like an adult, manga!Winry has a stronger personality, and all the good qualities of Roy are more obvious in the manga (just let’s take his interaction with Havoc)… And, I think, Al had the worst luck in TV series. There he was turned almost in Ed’s pet (calm down, I didn’t mean AiNoKusabi! ^_^) while in manga they are practically equal.



For example, he was almost as enthusiastic about the idea of reviving their mother as Ed. And when there were in that village of miners Al felt absolutely free to say that he was not with Ed to collect more information. And he teased his nii-san a lot! And he wasn’t in love with Winry! And he remembered how to perform alchemy with clapping pretty soon and performed it very impressing!

 Of course, TV have to be simpler to be a commercial success in all strata, but why did the decide to simplify characters?..
