I used to wonder about the ed exchanging his life years thing, but then arakawa drew him at 80 years old right? Or is that not "canon"?
Hello yes, it is canon! (oh my god this is like, months old wow I’m so sorry)
Arakawa drew a little “Ed’s Life” kind of thing, and his gravestone said 88 years old:
Progression from top to bottom is: 20, 15, 11, 30, 40, 80, 88
I believe this is from one of the art books, or some other sort of extra (however I’m not entirely sure), but I hope this answers your question!!
and oh my god I can’t believe I took so long, Ed is probably already 30 by now :’)
he looks so much like Hohenheim at 40 I’m gonna cry
