No let's just keep the last episode as happy as possible disregarding most of the aftermath of the battle. It's not as though giving up alchemy was the specific toll needed its just the toll Ed chose to pay. Eventually the beef ended so he could concentrate on his legal problems but still cited a loss of respect for the producer. And was the injury so horribly sever that Mustang has to wear that massive eyepatch instead of a normal one like Bradley? And, as any person would infer, Envy took Al to the underground city under Central. I forgot about that plot point. The pride that he had only once used human lives as a tool. How hard is it to take one out? Once you go through the gate completely you are stuck here with no more access to the gate kind of like a one way valve.
Despite having some obvious changes to the story during the third act, the overall arc is fairly faithful to the source material. Santiago's ability to communicate with the forces of nature such as the Wind and the Desert is itself both an act of communication across perceived divides and an act of transformation. Thanks for joining the discussion. We never get to see Dante really fight. Ling was clearly communicating with a distinct soul when he was within greed Read more Reply to: Melissa 16+17. Izumi being their teacher was cut from the same cloth. The fact that the physical treasure that Santiago sought was always close to home drives home the message that a spiritual journey is not about becoming someone else, but rather about finding oneself.
This causes Santiago to begin his journey and find his Personal Legend. Anyhow, good posts all, and I enjoy reading them, they make you think even more about a story. In Ed's case here that would have been pride. As of December 2007, the album has sold 130,000 copies. By the show's logic, mustang would become consumed with vengeance after killing the thing that killed his best friend the same way scar was consumed by vengeance towards state alchemists after they slaughtered his people. Later an extended version was released, also for free.
This means the end credit scene sets up the idea that Envy is not dead and he will appear in the next movie. Why not have him use the stone? Bradley could have had the skull crushed into powder and the resulting dust dispersed so that it would never again be a threat to him. Even wanted to learn Eastern alchemy just for that purpose. Also homunculi being able to force people through the gate comes across as contrived. He rejects it even though there is literally no other conceivable way that the show has introduced that he could get out of this situation.
Al stayed loyal to his old friends, continuing to produce for Dilated, Cypress Hill and Crazy Town. Mustang noted he did not have this luxury; he could not offer his Gate to get back his eyesight. This made sense in terms of not creating or destroying matter, but was obviously a major violation of other rules: You can't create order from chaos without using energy. He became a much less interesting character to me. Rose carried the thing all over, and weeks or months went by yet it was still an infant.
I think that was my big problem with it. Another thing I heard was that he gets demoted for a suspected roll in the death of Furher Bradley. How could he not think of giving up his gate to get Al back? Al uses the Philosopher's Stone to perform a perfect human transmutation to bring Ed back. However, I also though that despite all that, it would not be a happy happy ending with rainbows and butterflies. Appreciate the beauty of how the ending makes you yearn for more of the characters. A monument of a baby being held up appears on top of the gate that is not there in the other appearances. Keep in mind the first time he was being attacked on all sides the first time around and then once he loses the power of God he's suddenly desperate.
Ed trades a skill for a person. Since we really only get to see three of the homunculus in action, this means the next film could easily introduce Wrath, Sloth, Pride, and Greed. He never puts up a convincing fight. Due to this, Gluttony's Gate is full of all the objects he has eaten within a massive sea of his victims' blood. The whole sacrificing themselves scenes were really well done and it sucked to see.
Sounds unlikely, but possible, especially for Scar, who is quite strong. She wanted to run but also wanted to do her part to help win by fighting back 6. He knew it wouldn't bring back his brother and everyone else who died, or even make the remaining alive happy, but he killed state alchemists as a way of striking back against the country that had used alchemy to slaughter his people. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same hand. He produced the entire album. The final alchemy that Edward performed made no sense.
