Here it is! My blood, sweat and tears. Still very much a draft since I haven't included the input from my professors yet. Feel free to let me know what you think! I could certainly use the feedback. Also, if you guys have some idea which journals to submit this to, let me know.

Ah, okay; I noticed that a lot of the character's roles seem a bit subverted in the anime; forex. the thief girl not only outruns but also outwits Edward in the manga, whereas in the anime, Edward has to teach her a lesson (or something like that). As a result, I much prefer the manga; the gender roles seem more equal, and there is a very strong sense of the country as a whole, working outside of the limitations of the plot; i.e. ordinary people living (or doing their best to live) ordinary lives despite war. The anime seems to be lacking a lot of what I like in the manga.
