Friendly reminder that out of all the horrible shit that happened to Edward Elric (not counting the loss of two of his limbs and his brother’s body), the thing that hurt the most was the fact that he couldn’t save a little girl’s life, and he mentions it in the end of the manga when he makes the biggest decision of his life.
I’m going to dinner so i’ll post this again on deviantart a little later! Consider this a sneak peek I guess??
I can’t afford to lose you
I just love this particular parallel between them; whether or not you ship either of these couples (platonically or romantically). Plus I adore ATLA/FMA crossovers/parallels.
Congrats on hitting puberty, Ed.
It’s so weird seeing these gifs because when you actually watch the show they do it so gradually that you barely even notice (at least I didn’t) but then you look at these and it’s like, whoaa. Even Winry has a completely different face, it’s not just Ed getting taller and more muscular.
Animation, you’re doing it right.
especially when you consider this happens in what, a year? a year and a half?
This is actually one of the things I love most about FMA. They age so gradually, just like real people. A lot of times in anime and other animation, there’s not really a slow process of growing up; it’s just sort of, “Hey, look, she has curves now, and he’s way taller.”
OH FUCK, I didn’t even know this was a thing.
LOOK HOW LONG HIS HAIR GOT
