For this "Man Crush Monday" I am choosing Edward Elric. Back when the original airing of Fullmetal Alchemist was on, I totes wanted to put myself in the show and be Edward's personal mechanic myself, haha! With his high optimistic attitude and go get 'em outlook on life, he was one of many people's favorite character. Of course we loved when he was called shrimp because then his adorable little temper would arise and it was just something hilariously adorable.
In the series Fullmetal Alchemist, if you haven't seen it, Edward and his brother Alphonse like to dabble in alchemy. Until one day their mother dies, the brothers are so heartbroken that they believe that they can bring her back using alchemy. However, something goes horribly wrong and Alphonse ends up losing his body, as "equivalent exchange" Edward pays the price of an arm and a leg and he was able to bond his brothers soul to a suit of armor.
Determined to find a way to get their bodies back to normal, Edward decides that he wants to enlist in the military and becomes the youngest state alchemist being able to pass the test at only the age of 12.
His endless determination to right the wrongs, his loyalty to himself and his brother, and just the overall good that comes out of Edward is why fan girls just adore him. Who couldn't adore an adorable pipsqueak with a heart of gold?
