D&D(?) in FMA  

Has anyone else noticed this:

 

 

D20?, DM's Haven,  dozens of interesting NPC's (with however only race, class and sex as stats), a beautiful full-color rendition/ map of the school. 

chapter 2 is interesting in that it describes an alchemical school called (something's) alchminary where students are taught the finer points of alchemy and something else......Prestige classes.

Does anyone know of any other places in FMA where there is stuff like this?

Well, there is mention of Britain on many occaisions in letters and on some spots in the manga. But ONLY in writting never in speech. (Though my theory is that the world of FMA takes place in a Euro-Asiatic-African Utopia-esqie world or rather, the world that never happened in the 1900s that includes some of those European and Asian countries or places 'like' them but that's another topic of discussion.XD)

Oh and please put the picture behind an lj-cut

If you don't know how to do an lj-cut, here:
<0lj-cut> img src tag here for your photo
just take out the 0s ^__^

to close the tag just put a / before the second lj-cut like you would any other HTML tag

I won't mention the LJ-cut thing.

Actually if you pause on a lot of the text in the series it's rather odd looking. In the episode where Ed get's his "name" his certificate has very odd wording after the initial line or two.

The letter that "Col. Mustang receives" is actually addressed to someone named "James Herbert."

One other example is in episode 26:

"Dear Col Roy Mustang

Please have the HQ pay all the bills for my hospitalization, medication, food, etc. This section by featuring a number of objects of special from the contemporary collections of the Science Museum shows how broad and multi faceted a contribution modern Britain is making to science and technology and also sheds light on the Science Museum's policy.

Thanks
Edward Elric"

More or less I think they probably go online and find some random text to fill in after the first couple lines as the images aren't on screen long enough for many people to read more then a line or so.

me and a friend made fun of that all the way through the series, like the third time I watched it. Everytime someone said "Roy Mustang", or even when he'd appear on screen, we'd be like "Roy Mustang, mail theif." or "Roy Mustang, who IS NOT, James Herbert..."

I'm not surprised if the staff did lots of research into alchemy for good quality reference material.

finnell1912 probably isn't too far off from the truth. And the Alchemical School is called "Saragun's Alcheminary", as stated in the link above. There are other words in the image, on that webpage.

then again, I remember watching ep 17(?) where they learn what the true source of the PS is, didn't Al mention that most of what Ed wrote he couldn't read because it was coded so that just anyone and everyone couldn't do alchemy. Also I think it was also mentioned that Dr. Marco's research was coded in the form of cookbooks too... *shrugs*

As for some of the other writing(or maybe all of it ^-^), I think I agree with others' opinions in that they just pull English off the internet or something to make it look cool ^-^
mikkeneko on August 18th, 2004 02:43 pm (UTC)
In honesty, I wonder if the people who came up with this stuff really even speak English. XD;

Won't bother to mention the lj-cut.
maddpuss on August 18th, 2004 03:42 pm (UTC)
If ya can, try reading Roy's to do list. XD I've forgotten which episode it was, but I think it's one of the earlier ones.

I can't get at the screencap right now, but in ep 27 young Ed and Al are looking at some notes their father has scribbled in an alchemical text.

The notes are about how to make a cheese omelette.

I love Engrish.h
