Undoubtedly a deeper connection. Anyone who thinks Bones retconned the series needs to calm down and recall Bones is plenty capable of surprising storytelling and direction. Remember the alternate worlds mind-fuck they slowly built up and exposed near the end of the original Fullmetal Alchemist? Nobody expected that. Also - Rah Xephon. (I cite these two anime because Astral Ocean feels like a production from early Bones)
