unless it's Lt.Colonel, than that's one up from Major, and makes more sense.

Hmm, you're right, Major is a higher rank than Lieutenant (I never claimed to be an expert on military ranks... Tongue ). However, I checked episode 5, and she is introduced as "Hawkeye Shoui" (Second Lieutenant Hawkeye), meaning that she was promoted (to Chuui, or First Lieutenant). So, Wingnut, if your subtitles said "Major," it must have been an error.

It seems they changed the Hawkeye character around a bit in later episodes. I noticed she didn't seem to have her hair tied back like usual.. Instead it was just short. Still weird since her hair is much longer than it appears.

Well my subtitles are the ones that ran on AS last night. So I guess it was yet another Funi fart.

It's important to remember, but this show takes place over the course of years. In this episode, Ed is almost 12. Hawkeye has her hair short. She lets it grow out, and pins it up. Can't tell when your picture is from ( hazard not to look either!), but I will assume it's from later in the series. Most of the time that we see her in the first season is three years down the timeline. Ed is 15 ( he turns 16 near the end of the first season).

They also kept the 'Liza' part in the same subtitle, too...I would have thought they would have fixed that seeing as they refer to her as Riza for the rest of the series. But I guess they forgot to go back and fix that part too....
