I like how Ed’s expressions change as well as Winry yells at him- he went from growling and hissing comebacks at her to that intense glare as if he’s really thinking about what he’s gonna say- (also that he kinda looks like he’s just realized she’s no longer bigger than him and he’s looking DOWN at her-) He didn’t just age, he matured
Congrats on hitting puberty, Ed.
It’s so weird seeing these gifs because when you actually watch the show they do it so gradually that you barely even notice (at least I didn’t) but then you look at these and it’s like, whoaa. Even Winry has a completely different face, it’s not just Ed getting taller and more muscular.
Animation, you’re doing it right.
especially when you consider this happens in what, a year? a year and a half?
This is actually one of the things I love most about FMA. They age so gradually, just like real people. A lot of times in anime and other animation, there’s not really a slow process of growing up; it’s just sort of, “Hey, look, she has curves now, and he’s way taller.”
