In a world of alchemy, alchemy is what defines the rules of said world. First of all, there ought to always be balance. You get what you give: equivalent exchange. It’s hard to break such a rule, for by giving too little, you will simply get less back. It’s the kind of rules that are defined by “shouldn’t” that are tricky. Like, you shouldn’t attempt reviving the dead. Shouldn’t doesn’t mean you couldn’t. Truly, shouldn’t merely means the price is mighty steep, and that there are no guarantees on the result. Right?
When Edward, and Alphonse lose their mother, the heartbroken orphans resign to the last hope they seemingly have. Edward, overconfident in his knowledge of alchemy persuades his brother where he still had doubts. They’ll get their mother back. That’s the only way. So they pay the unspeakable price. And received a nightmare in return, a nightmare that has become their life.
I cannot wait for this movie!
