Kenja no Ishi
Finally caught up with FMA (just DLed 44, but haven't watched it yet).|
Poor raane asked some questions and no one said anything. Here's what she said:
I watched 41 and 42 fairly recently, and am amazed at how much happened in such a short space of time. My thoughts are on the Stone--is it real, or not? Logically, it doesn't make any sense. The Stone is supposed to be an infinite source, but no matter how they do it, how many lives they pump into it, it's still made from finite materials. That implies, to me, that the one that is currently residing in Al's body isn't the real one, it's just a large unfinished one. It also backs up Pride's statement: "It can't fall into human hands, so it doesn't exist."
But...I don't want to believe it. I want Al to have a body again. T.T The lack of the equivalent trade spiel in the beginning of the episode leads me to believe that maybe, somehow, they'll overcome it. *Hopes* Any thoughts?
I agree with the observation about how the stone is made despite its "infinite" powers. If it does turn out to be the real one (and they're making such a big f'n deal over it) perhaps it has something to do with souls being immaterial? Perhaps a soul is an infinite sourse [of power]. The fact that you have to use humans and not cute little puppies makes it seem like the Philo's Stone is all about cheating the Law of Conservation, and suddenly it's not science anymore but magik.
I wasn't paying that much attn. Pride said that? When why are they getting humans to try to make it? Unless he's talking about humans physically touching it. Or maybe he was saying that humans may be able to create it or fuel it, but it can't be manipulated by humans.
Or maybe the translators are getting sloppy.
Anyways, Mr. Elric has appeared. Things should start getting angsty now. :b
