    It's this one scene where the light is reflecting off Alphone's helmet making it look like he is crying. It was after the realization that Ed and Al didn't kill their mother again, after finding out that the creature created after the human transmutation was nothing remotely like her.

    when granny pinako told armstrong what it feels like to get automail. the scene was a little cheesy, i'll admit, but i feel like it re-enforces that ed and al arent just kids--they've faced hardships and didn't as granny said, "utter a single sound."

    These scenes don't make FMA, but they always come to my mind when I think about it. Basically... whenever Ed breaks his automail and then he and Winry have a little *hahaha* scene where they're laughing and she's chasing him with a blunt object.

    I'd have to say Hawkeye's account and the flashback of War in Ishbal was definitely something. Most mangas do this sort of thing but this gaze into the past was full of scenes that made FMA:

    Armstrong's conscious interfering with his duty
    The last Ishbal- 'I curse you'
    That Ishbal that went to kill Roy but got shot by Hawkeye-his facial expression was drawn so well
    Hawkeye burying the child
    Hughes stating that he fights 'simply to survive'-once again, how it was drawn contributed to its greatness
    Scar discovering his brother's arm has become his own and his newfound quest for vengeance
    Kimblee's view on things
    Riza asking Roy to burn her back
    The unusual comradie when Basque Grand shot that officer- 20% of casualties on the battlefied occur due to friendly fire.

    That doesn't quite sum it up, and I'm sure I've missed some things out, but the entire backstory of Ishbal really stood out.

    I <3 the Village People. Everyone wants be a macho man. And join the Navy. And stay at the YMCA.

    <Viraten> It's better than Naruto
    <Chiza> Most things are.

    I remembered another one today on my way home after my chem paper, which i'm awfully depressed about - Ed and Al's first encounter with Scar.

    After the beating they got from him, Al scolds Ed for choosing to die then after their arguments - and Al's broken arm - Ed said to Al, "We're all beat up, there's no way we can suck this much" to which Al replies, "But we're still alive".

    This scene reminds me that, they are, after all, just human - children in fact, who are out to achieve their dream. They arent some heroes who always wins but instead, they're just trying their best while surviving. Just like the Nina's arc when Ed's statement about how even though he, a national alchemist is given so many names and exalted in the military, he couldnt even save a little girl.

    I think FMA and it's little details are what makes the manga such an excellent read. Not the art, not the actions but rather the things she drop for you to think about.

    i agree with this. it really made me think when Ed said "Self-sacrifice is self-satisfaction" - usually self-sacrifice is so glorified in any story (even in reality too), that you don't really think about how some people sacrifice themselves to make themselves happy, but actually make they people they're sacrificing for sad.

    another thing was when kimbley goes "you don't have the resolve to kill" and ed replies "i have the resolve to NOT kill" - again, it really fights against the stereotype of how strength is needed to for killing, and those that don't kill are weak.

    I think all the dark, twisted stuff really made fma. My favorite part EVER is when Ed and Winry were kidnapped by Barry ZA CHOPPA and nearly died! They were so about to get it too. I think it was kinda realistic since the world is corrupted like that. Weird I know, but it's one of my favorite episodes. And the episode when Nina died. I love tragedies like that. *sniff* so sad. Wherever them poor kids go, they bring death. I <3 it

    Probably the scene where a homunculus says that they see humans the way humans see bugs. They watch them struggle without feeling anything (or something along those lines).

    The one that always makes me laugh is when winry and ed do the *hahaha* when al is running and winry chasing him with a chainsaw in her hand.
    The "texas massacre" and the "catch me if u can" moment really makes me laugh if I remember it.

    Personaly I really enjoy two of the early scence (there are plenty more, but most have already been covered). One is when he reads the list of ingrediants for composing the human body (very well done over all). You get the feeling right away that this isn't something someone should do just by the list and how Ed is saying it. The other is when he "rents" the room from the mining town with the town's deed. Sarcastic little bugger!
