while i AM excited for all the cool and interesting interactions with various characters that we will be getting in the adaptation, i really don’t think anything will be able to top this scene being made into physical fruition:
Yes, Fullmetal Alchemist characters told us multiple times that the Truth is cruel. But it is not. The Truth doesn’t take anything from them that they couldn’t have with the help of their loved ones.
So, yes, Ed lost his leg and his arm? PINAKO AND (mostly) WINRY ROCKBELL GAVE HIM THAT so he could still stand and fight!
Oh, Al lost his WHOLE BODY?! But his brother kept said body alive, and Al could still fight with Ed in order to get it back. He wasn’t alone, no. He had his brother and his friends and the warmth of their hopes.
And Izumi, she couldn’t be a mom anymore?! WRONG! Because Ed and Al stepped into her life and set her free from the burden of thinking she’d killed her baby twice, and they gave her pride and joy and she loves them like sons!
And finally, Roy. What a shame, he lost his ability to see. No problem, he simply had Hawkeye’s eyes. HAH. Best vision of the whole country for you, thank you, eyes that she used to protect him, eyes of the person he trusted with his LIFE, I mean. I’m even sure he trusts her eyes more than he trusts his own.
The Truth isn’t cruel. The Truth was showing them they were not alone. The Truth is wise, my friends.
You guys really out here NOT talk about Pidge in the game show episode? This girl calculated her swing so it would hit the camera, and then bouce off to hit Bob…AND THEN she tackled him to the floor. Dare I say,, iconic.
