Thoughts to interrupt your work day.  
Or school, whichever.

I've got some questions that I thought about a week ago, and waited around to see if anyone brought them up...and they may have been brought up, and I'm just really unobservant. Which I am.

Anyway...this doesn't have to do with THE spoiler, but it's still a spoiler for latter episodes, so...

I've got a couple questions, and both have to do with Barry.

1.) Who fixed Barry? Scar busted Barry's arm off in...whichever episode that was. Edward said there was a "trick" to fixing Al, so the same trick must apply to Barry. Meaning, whoever fixed him also knows "soul alchemy", and is also nearby.

2.) Is Barry really dead? The last time we see him, he's floundering around on the ground, freaking out but still in the living world. Scar crushes his helmet and he goes silent, but if Barry was still alive, crushing the helmet would have done nothing. Could he have just played dead after that?

I don't like Barry much, but that episode made the little "wtf?" alarms in my head go off.

Well, I'm not exactly sure about the answers to your questions, but I know that Barry comes back later in the manga.

i asked that too! *sniffles* don't want barry to die... but someone mentioned that she saw barry's soul-circle-thingy disintegrating in episode 24 which means that he'd be truly gone if this was true... but i didn't see that part at all.... *sweatdrops*

on the other hand, he does appear as mr. exposition later in the manga, so i am hoping against hope... *crosses fingers* live, barry, live!

Well, the part where we see the circle disintegrating is before he freaks out and latches onto the guy with the exploding knives backpack, and he keeps screaming and such for a good while after that. When the Slicer brother was killed by Lust, the moment the symbol was destroyed he was quiet, so...I dunno. :T

I don't really care if he is dead or not, but that scene in the manga would be really funny animated, I think. :D

I hope he isn't dead, just because he's the greatest badguy ever. You can't call him a villian, but a bad guy, yes.

Barry is a tricky bastard like that, I wouldn't be surprised if he came back ^_^;.

and, I'm sure we'll figure out who did the soul-affixing later on.
