Question about Ed  
Okay I have one question for now that's been bugging me about the series... 

Why, when Ed's soul was possessing alter!Ed's body, did Hohenheim say that Ed could still find a way back to the alchemy world...?  I mean, didn't Hohemheim say alchemy didn't exist in our world?   And that HE couldn't even go back, even despite his decaying form...?  It doesn't make sense to me.  Unless Hohemheim KNEW that alter!Ed's body would die..thus sending Ed back through the Gate.... But still, I can find no logical *teehee* answer to it.  Once someone arrives in our world, according to the plot, one can never go back...unless...*insert movie plot here*  So...anyone have any clue as to what Hohemheim really meant? Or...am I just being stupid...?

...You know...I'm suddenly thinking about Al...in the armor...and how, at the beginning, he rarely showed emotion...and then at the end...he was FULL of it.  Maybe he was getting used to showing emotion through his soul rather than physicality.

Al was in denial..No, really. :<

He always displayed emotions, it was just more emotional at the end, no?

Ah...that makes sense now... It's just odd to think that alter!Ed's body could just spit out Edward's soul without a moment's notice. What I find so sad is the fact, essentially, Edward KILLS his alter.... He's just killing everyone, isn't he? *not even counting the zeppelin as the threat*

And also...yeah, I did find it weird about Al saying, "Look, he's still warm...." Logically, it doesn't compute. But perhaps he's just saying it to feel humane? Or...he can actually feel it due to the Stone. Not sure.

It's just like...the belated realization I had about Ed's automail and Psiren's boob. I mean, I never realized it until it was too late that the reason he was confused of where his metal hand rested was because he couldn't FEEL anything...but still, the whole squeeze action always gets me.... It's as if Ed must do something in order to be sure that he's actually touching a breast. lol. Well, he didn't "mean" it, after all....*rolls eyes*

Yes, we COULD start a whole thing about the boob issue. In the subbed version, Ed's like, "Whoa, you're a woman!" after he squeezes Psiren's breasts. You would think it would have clicked long ago that Psiren's figure was more inclined toward's a woman's in the first place....

And of course, in the dubbed, I think Ed only does it...maybe because of curiosity, because he can't believe he's actually "harassing" a woman...or...that he's just curious about the action. But in the end, it's just too cute to see a boy "broaden his horizons". LOL....buuut, it makes more sense for the subbed, because of the whole sequence of *fall on Psiren*, *touch boob*, *squeezed boob*, *realize it's a boob*, and hence: "You're a woman!"

I just know that Vic Mignogna, our RR Fuhrer, believes it's a good scene. *teehee*
