Sorry to change the topic, I just have to mention one of my favourite things about Roy's character - ROYAI. What's your opinion on the pairing? I personally think it's one that's mature, subtle, beautiful. I prefer it over EdWin anyday, and it's one of my favourite anime/manga couples.

I just wish it were more 'out there'. I'm wondering whether the manga will see any active development of it. Although I'm already doubting...

I have mixed feelings towards it.

Well, not really towards the pairing itself. I actually really like it. I love the sense of trust and complicity that is always inherently there between them. At times it's like there's really no need for words at all between them. It's great.

The problem is that ever since I've started reading FMA, I've lost count of the times that I've seen the following type of comment when a new chapter comes out: "Eh okay chapter, but it had no Royai..." Basically when people get stuck on certain characters/pairings and their enjoyment of the manga depends on the development they get, well, it's never a good thing.

Love the pairing, myself. Hope they'll join Ed and Winry in acknowledging their feelings towards each other, before the manga ends, as well.

Remember: Homunculi are not invincible, at all. As the man himself mentioned before, if a homunculus have many lives, then it is up to the attacker to deplete them. What is worrying is the inability of the flames to stun. As seen in his crowning battles, he works best when his opponents can get stunned/staggered by flames.

Roy is easily in my top 2. in fact, he and Ed switch places between 1 and 2 very often.

True, true

I think the best way to "show" Hawkeye and Mustang getting together would simply be to have a scene showing them as lovers in a subtle way. Weddings or dramatic admissions of love aren't needed, because I honestly think they might already be lovers and aren't showing it. Ed and Winry would be good for a sappy love scene, a wedding, etc., but that's only if the FMA manga has a "happy" ending.

mustang is by far my fave character, and love the fact that he is completely useless in the rain and keeps forgetting it >.<

Also, for those of you who think Mustang isn't that smart alchemy wise....

Spoiler for stuff you know if you've read the manga or are caught up with the anime through episode 17:

Yeah, the whole snapping fire thing really made me love this guy too. I just think he looks goofier in the second series(As evident from the op video). Like his face is shorter or something.

If Roy was not a skilled alchemist then why was he accepted as state alchemist?
In even if flame is his speciality, it does not mean that he does not know about other fields.

I think there's little doubt that all personnel in the military have received some combat training. It's just Mustang that seems to overly rely on his flame to the point where I think he does it subconciously. Reminds of that time he tried to use it in drenching rain against Scar. Prompting Riza to comment on his uselessness in the rain.
