re: fma:b rewatch 

god, ed without his arm just hits me how TINY he is before he starts to gain weight.

eating for fucking 2

re: fma:b rewatch 

god, the fact that his slight size is actually a fucking plot point and not just to make jokes is so fucking good.

re: fma:b rewatch 

PASSED DOWN THROUGH THE ARMSTRONG FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS

re: fma:b rewatch 

GOD I LOVE ARMSTRONG

re: fma:b rewatch 

Maroh's pain is so fucking valid. Seeing Ed be in such a shitty place.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed is such a good kid.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Awwwww Winry timeeee

re: fma:b rewatch 

Armstrong meeting the family is the funniest shit.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed lying about his pain and what's going on to keep Winry innocent.

because he doesn't want to have his home tainted by his fuckery.

re: fma:b rewatch 

also always forget that Ed is a disabled character until he does his adjustments.

re: fma:b rewatch 

GOOD DOGGO GOING TO TRISHA'S GRAVE WITH ED

re: fma:b rewatch 

Armstrong learning about Ed's upbringing after accidentally being too glib about Ed's strength.

re: fma:b rewatch 

casual, "the brother's burned their house to the ground"

re: fma:b rewatch 

Burning their house to ground to make sure they can't give up halfway.

Neglecting to see that they've made homes in every city they've traveled to along the way

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed with long hair, yes.

re: fma:b rewatch 

aww the dog wiggles with Ed.

That's a bonded dog.

re: fma:b rewatch 

as someone who has had to have their nerves connected to something.

God I FEEL THE FUCKING CONNECTION SCENE NOW.

I do get what Ed feels when he gets his automail reattached.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed is in a similar tier as like Toph.

Very openly disabled, but everyone forgets because obviously the only disabled people are useless.

re: fma:b rewatch 

i fucking love the cutesy art style of the first closing.

it's ed's drawings of all his friends and family.

it's adorable.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Also love that it's obvious this was done by a female mangaka.

because winry isn't fucking sexualized.

she wears comfy clothes, and when working she's wearing a sportsbra.

but she's never sexualized

her sleepy clothes are baggy as fuck

re: fma:b rewatch 

beautiful how they managed to make a joke using the narrator

re: fma:b rewatch 

Lust and Gluttony are very good villains.

re: fma:b rewatch 

they only get creepier the more and more you learn about them.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Poor Ross and Brosh.

I love them so much.

re: fma:b rewatch 

The straight men to the brother's bullshit

re: fma:b rewatch 

SHESKAAAAAAA TIMEEEEEE

re: fma:b rewatch 

ed learning about photographic knowledge.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Good Ed paying for Sheska.

He's a good kid.

Using his money to actually go to people

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed and Al are such fucking nerds.

I remember loving this when I was growing up because they had brains and brawn.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed and Al pushing self esteem up, and also helping Sheska realize that everyone has talent and something amazing to add

re: fma:b rewatch 

poor Brosh and Ross learning that Ed is the fucking middle of everyone.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Hughes throwing jobs around like confetti

re: fma:b rewatch 

Al loves his older brother so fucking much.

it's adorable.

re: fma:b rewatch 

i fucking love how the hopeful and encouraging music and knowledge montage is just

DECIMATED

FUCKING DECIMATED.

IN AN INSTANT.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed is maturing real fucking fast.

between Nina and discovering their goal is a sham.

and just

realizing that if Shou would kill his child over knowledge, then someone else would easily do worse for what they learned.

poor things.

re: fma:b rewatch 

I love how Armstrong is so good at learning bullshit.

re: fma:b rewatch 

oh wait. it's almost time for Barry the Chopperrrrrrr

YES

re: fma:b rewatch 

Armstrong becoming a dad in 5 seconds.

Follow

re: fma:b rewatch 

I mean, sure, Barry the Chopper is humorous.

But is also important for having the brothers realize that they are nowhere near the first to have done what they've done.

They are just the only ones even slightly open about it.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Let's slowly tear away the layers of bullshit in the world and uncover everything.

and also destroy everything the brothers have confidence about. Like realizing that al's body has a timer. and that there are even more horrors that the world has already uncovered than they had ever thought.

these poor boys didn't even know they still had innocence to lose.

re: fma:b rewatch 

and look the transmutation circle from the episode screens.

and it's the one for the philosophers stone.

re: fma:b rewatch 

their shock at Ed realizing that there are more empty shells out there.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Hughes using his wife and child as a cover for military secrets.

fantastic.

re: fma:b rewatch 

"Major Armstrong's gonna take off his shirt and yell at us again, isn't he?"

re: fma:b rewatch 

love when they make the automail a plot thing, because love the importance of his disability in his life. As it helps and hurts him.

re: fma:b rewatch 

"I'm sorry mr. serial killer, I'm a small town hick, I haven't heard about your work."

re: fma:b rewatch 

also that they remember that people get dizzy after blood loss.

yes, even during a fight.

re: fma:b rewatch 

I consider you people whether you have a physical body or not, otherwise I couldn't look at my brother.

ahhhh sooo good.

re: fma:b rewatch 

"you're the first person who ever treated me like a human."

it's fucking great how morals get you things and open hearts.

re: fma:b rewatch 

fuck you envy and lust for ruining Ed's humanity more my friends.

re: fma:b rewatch 

hate how barry gave Al doubts.

and then plot shit keeps it as a thought in the back of his head for too long. :(((

Al deserves the fucking world.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Envy pretending to be nice.

All because they want him to die at a better time.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Kimblee is such a fucking creep.

jesus fuck. stop you creepy ass Good Ol Boy.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Everytime Ed is seriously injured, he is actually seriously injured. And it lasts.

Like, later on, Roy has scratches on the back of his hand after his fight with Lust for the rest of the series.

re: fma:b rewatch 

all the injuries actually carry weight.

and then the mental load from realizing he's hurt others is also long term.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Ed's lack of understanding that Winry is sad about him being in the hospital.

re: fma:b rewatch 

Winry and Hughes is a power combo.
