Btw, I'm a bit worried about how desensitized I am with manga gore. I hardly blink at it in Fullmetal Alchemist, and in Hellsing, it was only too much for me when the vampires began attacking London. Come to think of it, it's probably because my first manga was Detective Conan. I've been reading about decapitated corpses since before I got into middle school. >_>;
...Oh hey. I just realized there are a LOT of parallels between Ed & Al's first fight with Scar and Alucard & Seras's first fight with Anderson. Heck, Scar and Anderson are similar characters themselves.
