E is for Edward Elric
It surprises me how often in shows, books, or movies, the main character is not my favourite. It's usually one of the supporting cast--the sidekick, the funny best friend, the evil-guy-turned-good--that draws me.
Well, not so with Fullmetal Alchemist!!
Ed's my guy. He's hilarious. He's the most talented alchemist in the land (and he's a kid), and he doesn't let it go to his head (well, ok, a lot of times he does--but not when it matters!). He's short and he's not afraid to tell you he hates it. In fact, he'll turn even more cartoony with wide glaring eyes and pound you to the ground if you tell him so.
But most importantly, he's got heart. He cares about his friends. He would sacrifice himself for his brother. He'll give up at nothing to save the day, even against impossible odds.
He's the kind of guy I want on my team when fighting the world's end.
Shout out to blogger buddy E: For Ellie Garratt because she wants to date Sheldon from Big Bang Theory and got to meet William Shatner.
