Journey's End

A lesson without pain is meaningless. For you cannot gain something without sacrificing something else in return. But once you have overcome it and made it your own... You will gain an irreplaceable fullmetal heart.
Whaaaaat? It's over already?

So Edward finally kicks some serious ass and beats the crap out of Father. Then the pathetic loser tries to suck Greed the philosopher stone from Ling's body. Greed, in the form of philospher stone, transformed Father's body into charcoal but then he is killed by Father. Ed strikes the final blown to Father and the Homunculus returned to it original form. That's what I called an ending.

But not yet. Alphonse hasn't returned from the Gate. Ed refused to use the stone to get Alphonse back. He then draws a human transmutation circle and brings himself to the Truth. He exchanged his alchemist ability with Alphonse body and get him back to the world. And finally all of them gain a true ending. Ling became the emperor. Mustang regain his sight and will revise the policies in Ishval. Hohenheim died with smile on his face. Scar will revive the Ishvalan religion. And top of that Ed and Winry married and have kids.

What an ending. I applaud Arakawa-sensei's incredible ways to tied all the lost thread. This a great ending for a great manga about an epic journey. I kinda little sad that Fullmetal Alchemist finally ends after all these years. Sayonara Edward and friends. I surely will miss you all.
