Yeah I remember the character designer for Onegai Teacher/Twins was at Otakon this year. He spent like 5 minutes explaining moe~ and the feelings behind it, etc. hehe

Anyway, the automail that Ed is wearing is connected to his nerves which is why it can work ....... although of course in real life connected nerves and powering something like that to work would be pretty impossible....
Actually I saw a documentary the other way, about people with robotic body parts. Like deaf people being able to hear again with some sort of digital ear which passes information to the brain. There was also a guy in it with a robot arm which was connected to his nerves and he could move it around and everything. Well, not as good as Ed's, but it was still pretty impressive.

What ain't? I mean: isn't?

Do you mean the fact the Fullmetal Alchemist world doesn't seem to have technology at the same level as real life?

Does it really matter? It's obviously some sort of fantasy world anyway.

not really a fantasy world.. alchemy does exist before, but not to the extend of this anime's imagination..

Oh please, the alchemy is just an excuse for the characters to have super-powers.

Real world alchemy was just the predecessor to chemistry/science.

Moreover, the killer openly said that he didn't want to put himself in any kind of risk.
I think he have to just put his hands together and he can transmute. Would be hard with 1 arm

290174901 years after the topic died... right?

The answer to why Ed can use alchemy without the cirlces is simple.
He's the protaganist

Sorry, moe != kawaii.

Moe comes from the verb "moeru" which means "sprout" or "bud," as in a tree or plant. "moe" is used to refer to the attractiveness of a young girl just sprouting into womanhood, her innocence, etc, etc. Its real meaning is probably more subtle, but you get the idea. Perfect example of "moe" is Shinobu from Love Hina. Comic Party Revolution has a great translator's note on this.

Example: a baby could be "kawaii" but definitely not have "moe."
It's a mistake to mistake these two words.

Really, it is not a predecessor, as science has really existed since Aristotle. Originally, science, math, and all those academic disciplines were known as philosophy. Alchemy is an occult or magical pursuit. Alchemy was always considered separate from academic sciences.

Isaac Newton was an alchemist. He never succeeded in discovering Philosopher's Mercury though.

Except in the science fiction/alternate history book Newton's Cannon.
