Okay...This is really bugging me. What year was Ed Elric born? Just to clear something that's been plaguing my mind recentally.

To give the same explanation as last time:

The confusion with Ed's birth year has to do with the difference in dates. Our dating system now is based in the Anno Domini system (based on the Birth of Christ), while Ed's is probably based on some other sort of significant date based a few years after the Birth of Christ. Thus, the differences in years.

If you remember, when he goes through the Gate in 1914, he ends up at the end in Munich, 1921 (despite going through to London, 1916 the first time). So it actually makes a lot of sense that Ed would be 100 in 2005, if there's a seven year difference, and he was born in late 1898/early 1899 in his own timeline.

As for the season, Ed seems to be born in late winter/early spring, when it's possible for it to be rainy, snowy, or absolutely gorgeous. Just depends on what area of the world you're in/what sort of year it'll be, weather-wise.

And yes, I know that I think too much about these things. ^^;; I'm a geek at times.
