- Dec 1, 2007They are in fact the major enemy for the heros. And as
the title suggest it is deep in the theories, beliefs,
and symbolism that come with Alchemy. There is also
many religious themes in use with the Ishvalans
(Ishbalans?, who happen to be a race of desert people
that believe in monotheism and think alchemist are
traitors against Ishbala, their god. If you read the
manga then the series brings in a very Chinese type of
people call the Xing. We really haven't seen enough of
them yet to know what their religion is if they have
one but their Alchemy has different principals then
the other alchemy shown in the series.
Back to the anime and the resulting movie there are
many historical yet alternate reality themes in the
show and the government of the main character's is a
fascism with their leader being called Fuhrer King
This makes for a series that not only has religious
undertones but moral and political as well.
