g-guys... anyone remember this?  

We all know that everything that Arakawa does is for a reason, and really, everything is just a matter of when and how it'll reappear again in the manga. Does anyone else think this will have any effect on the final chapter? ;A; I've never forgotten this scene as the fact that Darius picks up Kimblee's stone RIGHT AFTERWARDS makes me want to rage at him for not finding it earlier, so.. yeah ffffff.

Well, I guess most of us remember this, because lately Ed used that "skill" of hims once again in fight with Pride, didn't he? I wonder if Arakawa will show if it really did shorten his lifespan. :F

There is a series of "Ed Through His Life" illos Arakawa did which also shows his tombstone with a note he lived 88 years. I'm not terribly worried about him shortening his life like that, personally, though it was terribly dramatic.

I've seen the "Ed Through His Life" sketches too--wierd how at 40 his face and build suddenly get heavier and he's a dead ringer for Hoho..and at 80 he's a dead ringer for Pinako. I noticed that right after this scene he suddenly starts looking several years older, is taller with a more elongated and pronounced jaw--in other words, he looks like he's aged--although she does turn around and make him look younger on and off. I think this was a device to put him through puberty in a hurry, because she now portrays him as a young adult, not a teenager.

You know, I was wondering the same thing. Why would she have brought that up if it wouldn't have some sort of relevance to the future? It would just seem odd if it wasn't followed up.

Btw, does anyone know where I can get ahold of "Ed Through His Life"?

Since people were asking about the Ed Through His Life sketches, and since I went a searchin' for them..

I uploaded them to my account, since Fullmetal-alchemist.com requires you to be a member of the site to see the pictures.

Yeah, he used his own life to treat his injure in that chapter, I remember it. And now I can't wait for the end. Is his life shorter or not? And what will concern with that clue? What will happen with Ed? I'm curious to death. Poor Ed >_

I'm actually amused at Ed at 30 dresses like Roy, yet still looks older than Roy currently does at 30. lol
Grygongrygon on June 5th, 2010 06:32 am (UTC)
I noticed that too! lol. Maybe what Ed meant by shorten-my-life was make-me-look-old. lol
now all i wanna hear is my message beep: mei - fangirl xDrebirthings on May 26th, 2010 12:22 am (UTC)
Holy shi- and I thought Ed was sexy at 16. *_____*"" ~

...oh, dear. Your theory makes me nervous. D:

hmm. Look at it this way. If it did shorten his life some, then he'd only live to be 88 like it says in the illos instead of 100 like it said in the OVAs. :) Eighty-eight is still a good long life to live so I'm not particularly worried about it. ^_^ I like binaryalchemist's theory too. This was just a plot device to age Ed a bit. Right now, I'm more concerned with Ed surviving his final battle with Father rather than whether or not he lives to be 88 or 100! :)
