And I do not recall anything about Hakuro being saved in brotherhood, but I guess it could have happened. But I do remember that the government did not know about his ability to do alchemy without a circle until the test, when he made a staff without a piece of chalk. Collecting powerful alchemists with that ability explains why they gave him the position they did, but since they didn't know about that before the test, it doesn't explain why they let a 12 year old do so. Which is one of the few reasons why I like FMA.

Still, all that was my personal opinion. It's just what I think XP
i haven't got around to reading the manga yet, but brotherhood cut out a lot of stuff--especially at the beginning--so that they could move on to the central plot more quickly and get past the things the first anime already covered

so just because it wasn't in brotherhood doesn't mean it wasn't in the manga

and basically what av said on all this as well

If there's one thing I really liked about the 2003 FMA, it was the abandoned underground city. That I thought was incredibly cool.

He was twelve when he took the exam. He's fifteen when all the stuff with the humunculi happen :D

Maybe it was just a flashback scene... I wasn't paying super close attention cause I was chatting and watching at the same time but the chat was super active. So I was basically just going off of what I was listening to and while my Japanese is decent, I couldn't pick it all up. xD

The only scenes I can recall in the first part of the series where he's 12 are anything about him taking his exam.  Other flashbacks, the ones with his mom and before the transmutation, peg him at around 10?

And then for the rest of the series he's 15-ish.

Glitch, you may be speaking of the first few episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist, the original series. They spend a good portion of the first several episodes in flashback mode, where Al is telling Rose the story how they became they way they are. Ed is a couple of different ages, but is around 10-ish or so when he attempts human transmutation. Then he spends a few months(? that may be wrong) depressed about Al and his mother, then a year in recovery after he gets his arm and leg. He is around 12 when he takes his State Alchemists exam. Three years later is when the series starts.

Does that help?

I think Glitch is talking about the 2003 version. I think he was actually 12 for the first eight episodes. Such a weird adaption.

Yeah sorry, I'm watching FMA, not FMA:B. Lol. And thank you, it makes sense now. I think I'll go back and rewatch it anyway just to pick it up better. But Ed still seriously does NOT look 12. At all.

Once you rewatch it, you'll notice he looks younger than he does once it goes into the present.

THIS.

Seriously, though. I definitely think you'll prefer Brotherhood if you hate the first anime at this point. I didn't anticipate using the following as a selling point up to now, but pretty much everything you've seen thus far (depending on how far if at all you've gotten past seven now) gets dealt with faster in Brotherhood.

If I'm wrong, though, or if you're not willing to test that out just yet, don't sugarcoat it for my sake. Or anyone's, for that matter.
