The Law of Equivalent Exchange Ch 25: “Master And Apprentice”

by Erik Amaya

Ed and Al’s explanation of their “origin story” is over and we’re back in Fullmetal Alchemist’s present. How does their teacher, Izumi, respond to their tale of trying to resurrect their mother and their cosmic punishment for it? The answer has a lot to do with a Japanese word that wasn’t translated in Chapter 25’s title: “kejime.” This time, Tim and Patrick suss out the meaning of this word and how it explains Izumi’s bifurcated reaction.
