One of the most impressive things about One Piece is Oda’s ability to consistently keep his story interconnected. He doesn’t just bring back old characters, he works people, places, and ideas into the manga well in advance, often reaching across hundreds of chapters. The collected parts here are far from everything. Whether it was Whitebeard’s first mention back in volume 18, written 9 entire years before his center position in the war of Marineford, or the prophecy that Luffy will destroy Fishman Island and the future importance of Noah, Oda has done an incredible job of building his world, connecting it together, and ensuring we always have things to look forward to.
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.”
OH FUCK, I didn’t even know this was a thing.
