FMA Theories:  

Some probably not going to happen theories about the FMA!Manga. So Manga!Name applies. >_>; Spoilers past this month's chapter.

Since we're revieled this month about the Kenja No Ishii being inside a Homonculus underneath the Ouborous, here's my first theory.

  • Soon, Ed get's the stone. He set's everything up, and is going to bring Al back. It's a done deal. But, then he realizes.. He can also get Trisha back. I mean, after all, it is the Philospher's Stone, he could do it no problem. And it does, except when he's bringing back Al's body from the gate, the Philospher's Stone goes into Al's body (right around the neck/shoulder area, like where Al's Seal is.) And, becomes a Homonculus for having a Stone inside of him. And since, Ed was greedy for wanting to bring back his brother, and his mother.. Al becomes the need Greed. Since the series supposedly going to run another 4-5 years, it'd be intresting at mid-story for Al to become a reluctant villian. Which leads me into my next theory..
  • Assuming Havoc is dead: (I hear the fangirl's screaming now.) My other theory is that each "Major" Military person. (Bassically everyone who get's merchandise) will be killed by a different Sin, with a reason.
  1. Maes Hughes is killed by Envy. Hughes is well known for trying to make others "envious" of Elysia, with the pictures. We all love him because of it, but it is techinally "doing the sin."
  2. Jean Havoc is killed by Lust. Havoc always had problems with relationships. Why? Maybe because, (besides Armstrong's sister) is that Havoc "lusted" over other women. He couldn't get into a relationship, he kept on seeing someone else. Now the specualtion:
  3. Alexander L. Armstrong is killed by Sloth. One, Sloth is a very muscle bound Homonculus, which would make an intresting fight between the two. Armstong was "Slothfull" with his job of telling Ed and Al about Hughes. He just kept on waiting to tell them, and he was a "sloth."
  4. Riza Hawkeye is killed by Gluttony. I haven't recalled a time when Riza has been "gluttonous", but it's been foreshadowed already, and, with my theory, she's the only military member, and the only sin left.
  5. Roy Mustang is killed by Wrath. Roy was "wrathfull" by killing Maria Ross, for revenge of Hughes. (I'm sorry, but why would Roy not killed Maria? He was hinting for Armstrong to leave because had a crush on her. Jeez, she wasn't such a big character in the manga. e_e;;;) And, I mean, Roy having to accept that the Military he's so devout to is run by a Sin, the Fuhrer, leaves him distraught. So.. yeah.
  6. Edward Elric is killed by Greedy!Al, or Pride. Oh, the angst of him being killed by his brother, and his brother not wanting to do it is so poetic-angst. And remember, he is still military. And, my theory on Pride:

Pride is Hohey-chan. He was originally Human, but I think he made himself a Homonculus. There is no other way he could of lived and not aged, and maybe him finding out how to make the stone/sacrificing his body to be a homonculus to allow him to make more sins. The non-aging is a sin of a Homonculus, remember. I'm guessing the Ouborous is on his forehead, since they're is a reason Aniki-sensei is not showing us nose up of his face in the manga. I have another theory that since Daisoto is an aging Homonculus, he's against the sins. Or Hoheinhemm, and wants them down.

Oh, and to those who will figure it out: Movie Ed's costume has a chain from his pocket, that usually has his watch... XD; Spectulate all you want.

Some probably not going to happen theories about the FMA!Manga.

The anime will end soon, yes. But the manga is going to keep on going.

The mangaka said she planned to go on for seven years if I'm not mistaking. So yeah, we'll have Hagaren manga for a few more years. The manga and anime are tremendously different at this point anyway. They're separate deals now.

I don't want it to happen, but your theory about Al and the new Greed makes sense... It would be really interesting! But, poor boys, they really don't need this!

And about the military death, I had thought a little about it after reading the spoilers fo 38... If it goes like this, I may even be able to accept Roy being killed... Maybe being the key word here. And I think that FMA is gonna get a bitter/sweet ending, but not tragic. So, no Ed or Al killing!

Let's assume Al becomes a Homunculus. Why would he attack Ed? Ed created him. The present Homunculii follow blindly their creator. Logic suggests that Al's behaviour does not change visibly.

The following-the-creator clause doesn't always work, either. Look at Greed.

Being a Homuculus does not automatically give one a burning desire to turn Edward Elric's life into hell. Greed wanted to be immortal; he thought Al, with his soul-sealing knowledge, could tell him how to do it. That's why the whole cockmockery with Greed happened in the first place. It had nothing to do with Greed being a Homunculus.

The rest of the Homunculus are after Ed because their creator is ordering them to.

If Al were turned into a Homunculus, he would have NOT have automatic obligation to follow the Father. If anything, he'd be blindly loyal to Ed like the Homunculii are to the Father. Which brings us around to my earlier point; his behaviour would not change. He'd just be immortal, that's all.

The homunculii are supposed to be following their creator, Sloth is sure as hell doing a piss-poor job.

Well, we ARE discussing the manga here, anime!Sloth doesn't count (and even if it would count, the brothers left her behind, allowing her to be picked up by Dante; that wouldn't happen with Al). And let's not forget that the manga homunculii and anime homunculii are drastically different.

Anime homunculii = the creepy little things that take over the bodies left behind in failed human transmutations.

Manga homunculii = lumps of flesh gathered around a PhilSto in the shape of a human.

Al as a homunculus would also have his soul and memories left. Anime!Sloth is a creepy little thing in a body that looks like Trisha. Homunculus!Al would still be Al.

Okay, got it. :)

I like the idea of human/sin confrontations like that, but I would expect the boys to come on top of their sins. Just because, you can't kill the Elrics. You can't. Lalalala, no killing the heroes.

As for Al being an homonculus, I have my own fic idea that deals with that, in a slightly different way than what you say. I would prefer if it didn't ever happen though. ^^;;

:q That's a really good theory, actually. Props to you. It'd be a great plot twist to see that happen.

Though, I don't want Hawkeye to die. T_T I love her too much. But it's enevitable.

Mega props to you on the theory of the militarymens' possible cause of death. (I spend a while racking my brains trying to figure out why Hughes was killed by Envy because to me, Lust could've killed him but and I thought that there HAD to be a reason for Envy getting to him...that or it was a well thought out act in the manga I mean.)

Sloth (from the shot in my Vol 7 for the Vol 8 preview) looks like Sieg Curtis imo...just a wierd observation (No, no...Sieg can't be a Homonculus so no one put any theories). But this is a blurred backshot of a big guy with long hair I guess its Sloth's build that's getting to me. Plus, Sieg is smart...Sloth, according to Greed, is no where near that. (So basically Sloth is a towering figure, very powerful but can probably not string two words together if he tried...an ape-ish like character...somewhat)

*sigh*...Death is the personnification of the black plague in this story... =_=;

Arex, you're so good at making me think of things in depth with your theories. ^^

Uh oh...PC is having a Moment of Intelligence :O
Hawkeye is gluttonous because she takes the lives of those who oppose/raise arms against Roy. That kind of works, doesn't it?

And I was going to put this somewhere else, but I thought I'd just stick it in here. I noticed something about ch38...

Hawkeye is not only a member of Roy's Team of Loyal Dorks (ToLD, for short) but she also acts something like Roy's personal bodyguard. If she's there to protect him, she will. When Roy, Havoc, Hawkeye, and Al split into two groups, Hawkeye should have gone with Roy. Because she didn't, that right away should have foreshadowed that something was going to happen to Roy's side of the group.

Um...anyway, to put it bluntly, Hawkeye split from Roy to give the manga-ka an opportunity to kill Havoc. Havoc and Roy were paired together to give the manga-ka an opportunity to make Roy watch someone die and not be able to do much about it and cause him even more Angst. Poor Roy's having people ripped away from him left and right ;___;

Maybe I'm being really pessimistic at the moment, but I can pick the manga-ka's intentions out because I'm guilty of doing a similar sort of thing once between a group of characters in one of my own stories. Yeah, we're evil >_>

Ooh, that was long..and rambly ._.
