Rnadom Thoughts  
While I was sitting here eagerly awaiting the first group to punch out a sub of 45 I was thinking about a couple random items.

First on the docket, who do you think Hohenheim transmuted? In the flashback at the beginning of 45 you see him start the alchemic reaction with a clap. This means that one of the sins is 400 or more years old; as we know Hohenheim was still in his original body. That leaves us three choices, Pride, Envy, and Gluttony. I am more then extremely doubtful it was Gluttony, so now where down to two, and they’re both extremely hard to pick from. Pride would fit as if he’s the leader you would assume he’s also the oldest, but then again Envy hates Hohenheim specifically. This was seen when he was literally kicking the crap out of Ed in the Fifth Lab because of his relationship to him.

This leads me to my second stream of thought. In the same scene where Envy mentioned him refering to Hohenheim, he also mentioned him as a leader. Now maybe it was just the fan-subs, but don’t all the sins repeatedly refer to their higher up as "he", including Pride. I was under the impression that Hohenheim would be whom they where referring too, but seeing as how both Gluttony and Lust had no clue who the hell he was and if what I’m assuming happened to him in the basement happend I think that rules him out. Do you think perhaps there is someone else, or they where referring to Dante as him on purpose?

Is anyone else unnerved by the amount of time Roy was alone with the Furher/Pride? Think it’s possible it wasn’t Roy who walked back out? That’s just a passing/closing thought though.

Finally I'll close by daying that Winry's Doctor father is not dead, he's just gone back to the future.

Both have:
  • Wild Hair
  • Technical Skill
  • Zanyness
  • A friend who is way too short for his age
  • Forget little details like screws and uranium
  •

    For the "him" bit--the Japanese they use almost all the time is "ano hito" which means "that person." The "him" was a translator assuming the gender, probably based on the manga. I *think* the only accurate incident is when Envy says he hates Ed because Ed is "that person's son."

    "Ano hito" could be a device the writers were using to confuse the audience, by using it repeatedly to refer to two people--Dante and Hohenheim. Frankly, I'm disappointed with the Suddenly!Dante!Is!Important! twist, but I have hope for the anime.
