A Magical Partnership: May Chang with Shao May Funko Pop! & Buddy

Immerse yourself in the mystical world of alchemy with the delightful May Chang and her loyal companion Shao May, the latest additions to the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Funko Pop! collection. This charming duo is an adorable representation of the series and a symbol of friendship and determination.

A Young Alchemist and Her Panda Pal

May Chang, the pint-sized alchemist from the eastern nation of Xing, comes to life in this intricately designed figure, which stands about 3 1/2 inches tall. With her innocent appearance and traditional Chinese attire, May carries the weight of her mission to find the Philosopher’s Stone with a grace that belies her young age.

Accompanying her is the tiny yet expressive Shao May, the panda who adds a cute factor and represents the light-hearted elements of the series. Shao May may stand a mere 1 1/4 inches tall, but her presence is significant. She is not only May’s pet but also her protector, enhancing May’s alchemic abilities with her unique charm.

About the Character: May Chang

May Chang is a supporting character in “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.” She hails from the distant eastern country of Xing and is a princess of the Chang clan, one of the many royal families vying for the Xingese throne. Despite her young age and petite stature, May carries a significant responsibility. She is on a mission to secure the Philosopher’s Stone, believing that it will grant her clan the power to rule Xing, thereby ensuring prosperity for her people.

May is also a skilled alchemist, notably practicing a unique form called Alkahestry, derived from Xing. Alkahestry differs from Amestrian alchemy in that it specializes in medicinal and long-range techniques, and it’s depicted in the series as more mystical and spiritual. Her abilities allow her to sense the flow of life energy and perform alchemy from a distance, which is particularly rare and powerful within the series’ context.

May Chang’s character is imbued with infectious optimism and fierce determination. She often displays a level of naivety befitting her age, yet her journey through the series shows her maturing as she faces the world’s harsh realities. May is accompanied by her tiny panda companion, Shao May, who is a cute and loyal pet and a comrade in her adventures. Shao May frequently participates in battles and has a special bond with May, which is humorously contrasted with her small size.

Throughout the story, May develops significant relationships with the other characters, including the Elric brothers, who share her goal of understanding the truth behind the Philosopher’s Stone. Her character arc intertwines with the main plot, adding layers to the story through her unique perspective as a foreigner in Amestris and a practitioner of Alkahestry. May’s journey is as much about finding her strength and understanding her value beyond her royalties as it is about finding the mythical stone. Her blend of innocence, fierce loyalty, and alchemical skill make her a memorable and beloved character in the “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” series.
